Maybe... who knows what her motives are? At least in the past she used to drop more creatively stimulating projects a la Between Today and Tomorrow or Ichigo Ichie on a somewhat regular basis. Now she releases mediocre singles just as often.

Anyone know when that is?

Is it that wishful though? Especially in Japan record labels are notorious for fucking over even their most talented artists.

Still, it's sad to imagine that even Ringo - both because of her stature and because she spent her early years resisting such institutions - has fallen to their whim. Maybe she just grew tired of resisting.

It's kinda like EMF

For years I resisted HATING on Ringo

But now I can't be fucked trying to come up with a decent defense.

Me and Ringo are one and the same.




Also her music went really really shit.

I think we're gonna have to wait till after the Olympics for anything substantial. Or retirement. Whichever.

Man I'd love to see what Glath thinks of the current state of things Ringo related, or Nimh. Hopefully they chip in eventually.

Their silence speaks volumes, I think.

My final review:


Kemono Hosomichi is Christmas dinner leftovers. Noone fucking wants more ham after a week of ham.

If DG feels so, then I might like it! But the youtube is blocked in my country.

I wish her vocals were more lively, she sounds like a feature on her own song.

It's blocked for me too (I'm in the US). For whatever reason the preview isn't region locked on YT:

The full video has been reuploaded to Chinese streaming sites, which you should be able to access:
