I haven't consistently followed Chara in several years but her recent collab (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zn96ard6VLg) with Yuki is a bop. :wub:

Anyone else digging their new album?

I think on some level there was a vague consensus around that but what confuses me is the '20 years'. I think we can generally agree some of her later material - at least 2007 onward - pandered more...

I hear that but since it's on a 'Best Of' being self-referential kinda works for me honestly.

To be fair, I give her credit for waiting 20 years before doing her first 'Best Of' album.

I look forward to hearing the album...

Today's the 10th anniversary of SG! Strange to think the album that got me into Shiina Ringo is a decade old now. And still it's held up quite well as a cohesive work....
