The same trio behind Anri's late 80s full embrace of an earlier brand of American R&B, Yumi Yoshimoto（吉元由美）, Yasuharu Ogura（小倉泰治）and Anri herself, was also behind the production of "Moana Lani". However with "Girls in Summer", the three decided to go for the sound of a laid back Hawaiian sunset from the comfort of a lanai instead of the rambunctious horns. In fact, my impression has been that the singer-songwriter was melodically heading for the 50th State from the 31st State of California as the 90s went by. And basically my interest in her work was starting to wane as the decade progressed.
"Moana Lani" peaked at No. 3 on Oricon and became the 25th-ranked album for 1992.
