What I find the most interesting about Marble is the fact that the song that experiments/deviates the most from her sound or expands the palette the most on there is actually the bonus track. Maybe she was aware of how different it sounded and decided- no, this doesn't go, but is too good to throw away?

I like it when artists can make this kind of conscious decision, to be able to throw away or make such a strong (if not the best song on the album) into a bonus track. Takes real nerve and true focus on the final product to do something like that.

A rather smarmy but kinda true comment I read about this album from a last.fm user was 'I like this, it reminds me of Shiina Ringo without the product tie ins". I was holding it back from posting here because it's pretty harsh (and I'm ashamed I didn't come up with that myself :-p) but there you go.

You're right, she does deserve a lot of credit for having a coherent vision and sticking to it. Although I'm also thinking it's kind of a "To Be Continued" at the end of the album. A taste of what's to come.

I guess I'm going to have to stick up for Ringo again.

Seijuku no Marble
is certainly better than most of the singles Ringo has put out in the past year, there's no denying it. But Ringo has risen to this level, and more, on many occasions. I'd argue that some of the new tracks on Sunny are equally good for example.

When I wrote that I was thinking in particular of JL005, but yeah.

Jetset won't let me preorder it though...not that I actually have a record player.

So has anyone heard anything further about the album Hamada is supposed to be releasing this August? Maron Hamada is the one artist that still excites me as much as Ringo...so I'm definitely waiting anxiously. I know the two re-releases are coming out this July and I've got those preordered.
