The crowd is on the back and inside. The front cover is a green background with dripped coloured paint.

No, that (the green) is actually meant to be the back. I know how it's all laid out on the CD, I'm looking at mine right now, but that's just some idiosyncratic thing she did, probably to reflect how Japanese books open from R-to-L. She did something similar with the KSK disc. Her official site shows the cover image as what you see on the back of the CD, because that is in fact the actual cover, even though it appears on the back. That's also what you find on all the retailers online, and it's not a mistake because her label wouldn't have let that happen when they were the ones who would have released the cover art to begin with.

Well, I guess I can say that the covers are complementary in my head.

So, uh... how 'bout that semen? Sure does smell a lot like chestnut flowers! (As another side note, what the hell gave her the idea that the three smelled the same? I can't say I've smelled chestnut blossoms, but still. Maybe I just ask too many questions.)

Haha... evidently (I haven't smelled them either, but have spoken with someone who has smelled both) they really do smell the same.

The problem is... there is no 'used' tissues. Only food scraps, bones and garbage.

I like how this thread avoids discussing the actual music of KZK in the most colourful of ways.

There's also a conversation about dentistry and a YouTube video of Gackt saying "fuck" if I remember correctly. Maybe that's quite Yattsuke Shigoto-ish and kind of the point?

Then let's discuss KZK!

My favorite track is cut between Meisai and Souretsu.
Meisai is insane. I love how the whole idea of the song seems to be unification from chaos, because there are so many different instruments each playing a different melody, yet they all come together to create this amazing song. I love the contrabass before the chorus and also how the song ends with the whining viola and then Ringo lighting a cigarette.

For Souretsu, I feel like the lyrics are very artistic and emotive. They are easily some of Shiina's most artistic lyrics, but at the same time they aren't impenetrable like some of her other songs (I still have no idea what Meisai is about). I really like the electric sitars during the beginning and the way she sings starting from after the second verse.

Oh, also, I really like Okonomi de's lyrics, because of how they sound. They really roll of the tongue well and I like how the rhythm of the song is closely incorporated to the actual rhythm of speaking the words.
