She said earlier this year there won't be a reunion. I wonder if she'll change her mind eventually.

To be fair, I give her credit for waiting 20 years before doing her first 'Best Of' album.

Also, LOL @ Einstein no Ringo.

Btw the new song came out - have a listen here.

Good catch. It reminds me of a number of other songs as well, which I don't mind actually since it's in the context of a Best Of. (And if you're gonna be self referential why not borrow the good parts?)

I can see it flowing into Ko no Yo no Kagiri rather nicely.

I liked it
it wasn't awesome but it certainly was better than most of the songs in her last album
and I loved the flute part
I always love when people use flutes in their songs

It's off topic for this thread, but...all y'all should be listening to a new artist called Miyuna. Might just be the second coming of Ringo.

Miyuna - Fuwafuwa

Edit: yep, when I check spotify I was already following her before

Split should have been one disc for MM and SS, and one disc split between KZK and "the rest."


SS has surprisingly few tracks. SS itself is practically a best of itself. KZK gets a whole one track which is pretty wack. I get that the songs don't lend well to a Best Of format, but you can swap out Stem for Kuki, throw in Okonomide, or Doppleganger. Ringo no Uta low-key is not one of her best songs. (And Stem is a snooze.) No ZCS tracks or B-sides apart from Suberidai is a sham.


The picks on disc 2 aren't terrible. For what it's worth, they're the songs that come to mind when I think post-KZK Shiina.
