HZM song is a confirmed Jihen leftover, from Ringo's mouth herself.


Last song was recorded when she was in Bulgaria, but don't get TOO excited, its still an outro.


And finally, I've made this joke everywhere but here's Ringo doing a poor man's Sarah Bonito

So glad to see Aya Sato in the flesh!

Also - a full live band for a half song?

Thank you for the link to the live, Spider!

I really really like her look in that performance but everything else was kinda meh.

Still have yet to see the MV. It's blocked in my country D:

It's a backing track still (everything on that show is iirc), hence why she's singing into a hairdryer

Lmao that’s even worse, all those people pretending to play a half song. Ringo has GOT to be trolling at this point.

ugh put it in the garbage where it belongs

That being said, I'd kinda like to hear it live with the Mangarama band.

Last song was recorded when she was in Bulgaria, but don't get TOO excited, its still an outro.
She should fully embrace her secret agent motif and steal other countries' musical treasures for use on three-minute tracks. If Gate of Hades was the last new song we ever got from her though, I'd be totally content.

(Also, for some reason when the rest of the instruments kick in halfway through it reminds me of "Feelings" by Morris Albert.)

the great:
ma cherie
uptempoed donzokomade
god, buddha
tokyo

the good:
opening and closing tracks
kemonoyuku hosomichi
coke song
a life supreme
menukidoori with male vocal intro

the meh:
kakeochimono (literally only sitting through it for that transition into the next track)
jiyuudom
hzm song

this will no doubt be a very polarising record. at least no one can say it’s boring. still trying to decide what i feel about the whole thing.

best track: Tokyo. Although is a little bit meh it's better than Ma chérie, and they are a little bit better than the others
great, wouldn't skip: Niwatori to hebi to buta, Ma chérie, Kamisama, hotokesama, Shijou no jinsei, Anoyo no mon
good, but maybe I would skip: Kakeochisha, Donzoko made, Nagaku mijikai matsuri, Jiyuudom
ok, don't know if it'll grow on me: Isogaba maware
bad, better than NIPPON tho: Kemono yuku hosomichi, Menukidoori

So here are the results:
Niwatori to hebi to buta 8
Kemono yuku hosomichi 3
Ma chérie 9
Kakeochisha 7
Donzoko made 6
Kamisama, hotokesama 7,5
Tokyo 9
Nagaku mijikai matsuri 6
Shijou no jinsei 7,5
Isogaba maware 4
Jiyuudom 7
Menukidoori 3
Anoyo no mon 8

1. Ma Cherie is the bomb. I wish I could get a full album like this.
2. Cleaned up Donzoko is rather pleasant to listen to, although every time I listen to it I keep wondering wHY it had to be remade? Copyright? Ownership? Non-adherence to her horse zodiac theme? (I also like the original)
3. Menuukidori song seems to be slightly remastered. I wonder if the other old songs had the same treatment?
4. Outro song is beautiful, but makes me sad because it shows that she still has so much more to give if she wanted to. EDIT: SAKURAN SEQUEL VIBES
