Not as interesting as the first reimport, not as bad as SUNNY.

Just plain eh.

Get the vinyl now before it's too late if you're a collector, I already see it going up in price on Amazon.

Here's a porn dump:

I wish she would work with Yukio Nagoshi more, Yasei no Doumei is easily her best track in ages and it reminds me quite a lot of Mellow from ZCS.
Fun fact: He arranged Yokyo from Sanmon Gossip and has also worked with Chara, ACO and UA.
Chara

Saihate ga Mitai is a treat, too. I know Bjork comparisons are tired and all, but as others have said, the arrangement is reminiscent of her rendition of Like Someone in Love.
Bjork

The baby-voice vocals on Shoujo Robot are a crime and Saito Neko unsurprisingly butchered Usurahi Shinjuu and Oishii Kisetsu. Other than that, the covers don't stray drastically from their original arrangements. There's not much to say.

Is everyone really sleeping on this album?

Perhaps this is because I never kept up with her gifted songs, but I thought this was a pretty solid release. Sure it's not as experimental or genuinely surprising as Reimport 1, but it's surely more consistent, the mastering isn't ear-bleeding, and it shows a certain care she put into the craft of creating an actual album.

The Highs: Jinsei ha Yume Darake, Anya no Shinjudate, Yasei no Doumei, Saihate ga Mitai

The Lows: Oishii Kisetsu, Jukinzoku Sei no Onna (the cheesy English lyrics just take me out of this one), Karei naru Gyakushuu

(Also - this album cover is just badass, plain and simple)

We were all on this album when it first dropped. Nobody missed it. Only really has 3 good tracks. The vinyl is shocking btw with multi bitrate sources LOL!

If you mean sleeping in the sense that everytime I play this album I fall asleep then yes, I am sleeping

Jinsei wa yume darake: is good for a nu-Ringo track. In a good oldschool album it would be an OK track but because it's on this album is a good track, perhaps even one of the best in the album

Oishii kisetsu: bad as a whole, but the rockish interlude right before the last refrain is good, I wish the whole track was like this ó_ò

Shoujo Robot: Completely butchered. This is one of my favorite tracks ever, how dare she did this with my precious shoujo robot ;o; I wish it would sound more like the JCHI version, or even the ZX version, which is heaven for me. If Shoujo robot was the main theme of a movie this is the version that would play before the plot twist, before the real best selling single/oscar nominated song has a chance to play when the orgasmatic action is going on.

Anya no shinjuudate: She wanted to sound like a james bond song??? She took out all the feeling of this song, and she did perform this live with feeling. I'm disappointed

Usurahi shinjuu: I don't have problems with jazzy tunes, I just didn't want Ringo's version of this song to sound like this, and I prefer Hayashibara's version

The heavy metallic girl: I like it, It's another good song, however I wanted more of that percussion that we have at the intro and outro, and I wish it wasn't in english

Otona no okite: Good. I'd prefer that version with Nao matsuzaki, but hey this has a yami ni furu ame feeling for me. This is how SR should use strings, instead of trying to put a whole orchestra in each and every song

Naute no dorobouneko: Good. One of the best in the album (notice that none of the tracks were great yet)

Smap song: bad, just like smap.

yasei no doumei: Wow, surprise surprise, we have a great song here! Certainly the best of the album

Saihate ga mitai: meh meh meh. The pink hair live version is better, but is still a boring song


Btw... where is the SUNNY thread? Do we have one?
