first impression sa_i_ta is awsome, didn't like the ballad, Kai-horrordust is pretty good for not having shiina vocals, wat the uki fuck honto no tokori, i think this song is good just not use to the vocals yet though,

You know, the more I think about it, the more I'm annoyed that we only now get to hear stuff like this (EDIT: well okay, just the Uki and Hata tracks) from them considering they've been around for seven years. I know it's a tired comparison at this point, but this is what Variety should have been, except doubled (probably by adding the decent Variety-era songs to the mix... if you can find five) and with three more Ringo tracks or something.

I knew what you mean, I was poking funny at you. I apologize for esoterica of the comment. I honestly can't see how you feel that way though.

I really liked the song by the way, I wasn't gut-wretched by Izawa's singing in any way, but I did sound strange to be at first. Uki, Izawa and Shiina should all do the vocals live though, I feel like it would feel more chaotic that way.

hmmm, I kinda get what gekokujyo was saying now.

So, I have a question.
Izawa, Uki, Ringo, and Hata all sing on their respective tracks.
Does that mean Kameda sings his song? I'm interested to hear how Kameda's singing is.

if anyone wants to hear clips, you can listen to 90 sec previews on iTunes Japan.

Ringo sings on hers, Kameda's, and Ukis. Izawa sings on his own, Uki does back up vocals to Ringo on his track, and Hata does his own.

This mini album belongs to Uki, Hata, and Ringo.

Hata's track sounds like something YUKI would do. I was pleasantly surprised.

I was left wanting to hear what a TJ take on dance-rock would sound like in a full album.

Also, I dont feel as bad as I did initially when I heard they were breaking up after hearing Color Bars. I think the songwriters will have more success and freedom in their own respective bands than they did together as Tokyo Jihen.

This performance of Chinese girl came to mind immediately.

I remember covering my face when she winded her hips.

Sa_i_ti is uki's?! I misread.

I don't this will be the last time she will work with anyone from the group, Kameda is a given, but I think Ukigumo and her will have that Miki and Nakako relationship.
