sa_i_ta was my favorite track. Nice 70s feel to the song. Kinda like Blondie. They've done songs like this, but this one comes off a little better than the others. Uki's singing doesn't even bring it down for me. It's actually quite danceable.

Kai Horror Dust had some interesting concepts. The Egyptian/Arabic guitar was interesting, but the song is let down by Izawa's singing and some out of place pop moments.

Nothing really to say about Time Capsule. It's a Kameda ballad.

Honto to Tokoro is awesome. Hata is great. It's like an atmospheric The Back Horn song. Hata doesn't sing so much as he shouts, but I like his voice.

Overall, I liked three of the five tracks. Hata delivers the most fresh sounding experience on the EP, but the other tracks don't stray far from the Phase 2 sound. It's a good, but not great collection of tracks. Ringo's and Izawa's tracks are the weak links this time. I'd say Ringo's is my least favorite of them.

So.... you're saying Hata's was awesome and this is the one and only song he will have under the TJ name?

Oh, how this appeals to my inner troll :lol:

how did you hear the album already , I though it'll be out only on the 18? (or maybe there's a leak floating on the web somewhere? :))

^ my thoughts exactly. But was too lazy to reply.

Konya wa Karasawagi is pretty good. I like the way her voice changes pitch constantly.

sa_i_ta = second best Uki track after Kimaru IMHO.

It's like a grander Mirrorball. In a good way.
