I was trying to avoid impressions too, but couldn't resist. Even if people give their impressions, I'll still make my own opinion of the album anyway.

Ryuukou: The opening drum reminds me of Karisome Otome (Death Jazz), poppish rock, I can feel the energy from HZM and Ringo.

Roudousha: The poppest song in the album, but I think it's better than every single track in Variety

Mittei Monogatari: Flute! energetic, fast tempo, exciting.

Maru Chiten Kara: Many sound effects

Karisome Otome: It sounds wonderful Shinji !__! , it fits perfectly well in this album

Tsugou no Ii Karada: X

Shun: I love how the song puts it in the middle. And it's definitely a grower.

Futaribochi Jikan: X

Mayakashi Yasaotoko: I forgot what it sounds like

Togatta Teguchi: Another promising stuff from the arranging team.

Irokoizata: At least better than the Neko's tracks

Bonsai Hada: LOVE IT. The opening reminds me of Super Mario (The stage under the pipe).

Yokyou: the second (and final) track with obvious guitar noice. The Yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah and Wooooooo should be flushed into the toilet.

MaruSad: Joke.

*****
1. Don't expect too much guitar in this album (Only Ryuukou and Yokyou are apparently clear). Piano dominates
2. MaruSad destroys the style of the album
3. Saito Neko should go home, seriously
4. The album/sequence goes well as a genre/concept, I'm still finding a song which can beat Hatsukoi Shoujo though.
5. The first album brings you the feeling of happiness, comparing with the previous ones, but I still prefer the darkness more (SS/KZK).
6. It beats HF and Variety.

Is the Yokyou 'Yeah-e-Yeah-e-Yeah' worse than the Boutoumin 'Awwwwwwwwwww YEAH!!'

It's like something from kindergarten choir.

All you other assholes who don't like new Marunouchi obviously have objectively bad taste in music and like Shiina Ringo by accident. We can't be friends anymore

I categorize them as the Bunny Army.
But in Yokyou, I dont know what is the point of adding 'Yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah' after Ringo's 'yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah'

maybe that was the track that reminded me of coheed and cambria?

PS: This is still my favorite (non KZK) ringo track : http://espanol.video.yahoo.com/watch/3734637/10261369

I forgot to mention the flute on Mittei Monogatari. I know some people that don't like it, but I think it's great and a strong highlight of the track. Reminds me of anime soundtracks, especially by Yoko Kanno.

Yes, Karisome Otome fits with the album. I just said it sounds like shit because I'm bitter that it was included. She could have used that slot for another song...

Totally agree about Bonsai Hada resembling Super Mario at the beginning ahah. When I first heard it I totally thought of the song in the Ghost Houses, from Super Mario World, and bellow the pipes.

I like the "Yeah Yeah Yeah" in "Youkyou". It gives it a 70s vibe. Altough I can already see many people complaining about it.
