So a "bad" Shiina album is still better than... pretty much everything else.

^ It's still pretty true in most cases. In the current Japanese pop music scene, definitely.

I'm sticking to my guns as well. Being better than the rest of the garbage doesn't make something good.

Sports is the eclair. We're all George.

I forgot to add Karisome Otome HF ver. I much prefer it over the death jazz ver. (can't stand the brass), though I really liked TJ arrangement on discovery and the japanese lyrics are much better. HF as a whole is way underrated too
I really enjoy both versions, but I do agree that the HF is much more pleasing.

My opinion changed too. After reading a couple of forum posts, I too think it's total garbage, boring sellout garbage indeed. I mean, who cares about fantastic musicianship and catchy songs? And I even requested my name being changed to "George".

Ringo never topped Koufukuron, and Variety still sounds awful after all these years.

We always had high hopes for you. You just needed a little more experience.

I hated your gimmick at first, but then it made me laugh. Probably because your non-Shiina taste is so good.
