The only chapter needing closed right now is the one on her career. She needs an extremely long holiday.

What difference to you if she continues making music you don't like rather than retiring? How odd.

TOKYO is kind of excellent, but then ive enjoyed most of her 'showtunes'

ironically enough, it sounds like it could be a TJ track

Is that why she is carried by a horse in identity? It would make sense O.o
I would be so happy to live in a world where we would be all theorizing about how it makes so much sense that those three albums are a trilogy, all the amazing eater eggs and the genius of her writing, and how good those three albums sound. Sadly that is not the case, they are not good enough, and it doesn't make any sense for them to be in a trilogy together.
What I hope is that SR will be an artist like Yumi Matsutouya, who had some periods of bad albums but it didn't stop her from releasing good albums a decade later. So let this awful trilogy go away, and let a new (and hopefully good) trilogy begin!
(after all her children will not be kids forever, they will grow up and she will get bored with her life)

sandokushi is the only album of hers so far that looks like it’s coming close to being “bad” tho so not sure if she’s really had a “period”of bad albums...

sonically uninnovative sure, i guess.

pretty excited to see what she does after this album. gut tells me she’s going to form another band.

I didn't mean bad like a Johnny's album or anything like that...
I meant bad compared to her early albums, I don't want anymore albums that don't make me feel the urge to listen to them.
I've spent 2 whole years of my life only listening to SR's music, and even now when one of her old songs comes up I stop everything I'm doing because they resonate so intensely with my soul.
She is the only one who made me feel this way about her music, and I wanna be able to feel this way again before I die (not that I'm dying or anything).
But her songs that came up after the Shuraba single rarely make me feel anything at all =_=

ive to say the relative disappointment in the new material coming from her on this album has led to a new found appreciation for her b-sides that i previously dismissed (e.g. sakasani kazoete, donzokomade etc)

i find jun togawa’s voice to be pretty much unlistenable even if i enjoy the sound of her music

I have to be in a very specific mood to appreciate her voice, it only happens once a year

She only has the best vocals of any Japanese singer, ever. No big deal.
