I immediately thought of BTW, ha. I still remember the backlash surrounding that cover.

Anyway you can hear the new track here: https://www.bilibili.com/video/av51095464/

It's OK, Telsaguy fixed the album cover.


And yes. That Ringo/Sakurai track is indeed the worst thing she has ever recorded. Worse than Coke song.

Nope, you just have a different opinion. Own it!

The new single didn't immediately grasp me the way that Niwatori to Hebi to Buta did, but it's grown on me with repeated listening. Ringo's voice meshes well with Sakurai. It's busy and doesn't really click for me until the bridge, but it's been a while since she's sounded this aggressive. While NHB reminds me of KZK, this track is more reminiscent of Shouso Strip (think Benkai Debussy), and tbh it's nice to draw that kind of comparison again.

Besides, she's written worse songs than both this single and Coke song, let's not get carried away.

I like the new single as well... Weak chorus but their voices go along well, nice arrangements and it's not a fucking showtune. I don't see how it can be worse than coke song, but to each his own

I can’t believe she got to release an “album intro” track as a single.

Also we are now looking at like, 4 new songs for the album?

Well played, Madame Ringo.

ps: I’m still hoping for the best.
