Thanks for starting this thread in the style of the traditional product topics, zeroryouko. Maybe we (not putting the responsibility on you here) can create a few more to fill in the gaps since ~2013.

I speculate the four clarinetists might be there only for stereo panning purposes, but who knows? Clarinet quartets are a thing, apparently:
Detective music b/c Ringo

Also, I hope the vocals in the "OFF VOCALS" version aren't too off.

Sounds.... decent-ish??? But ultimately, nothing new whatsoever. But it doesn't make me cringe like some of the other recent tracks.

But fuck man, that awful Reimport/Sunny style mastering once again.... it's such a major problem. Even if Ringo releases a new masterpiece, if it has this mastering it's never gonna fully float. Someone fire the person doing this!

HM's voice sounds weirdly like Ringo's, especially when she's doing that whisper thing in the beginning.

Song sounds ok; agreed, it's very done by SR's standards. Can't really make out quality of mastering based on this short YouTube preview though.

Thanks for starting this thread!!

I wouldn't mind helping fill in the back catalogue. I thought about it, but wasn't sure if it would matter at this point...

Anyway (wiping the tears from eyes) I'm super excited for the show and the song. It's interesting that gekokujyo brings up Hayamegu sounding like Ringo, because a friend of mine who went to the Kanagawa show said that Ringo sounded like Hayamegu during the first song

I'm quite excited to have off-vocal tracks, too. I don't recall if it's a first for her music, but it's definitely rare.

Maybe we can collaborate on it. You seem to have a good command of the Japanese language, and what's always hardest for me is finding and translating the credits. Most of the people credited are unfamiliar to me, and the names often have several different possible readings, so basically I have to Google every name and hope for a relevant result where it's written in hiragana or romaji.

Also on another topic - it looks like I've made a typo in the thread title. It should read "2016.02.03" and not "2016.03.03".

I hope you making these threads will encourage them to get moved over to the product reviews section.
