Really loving the Atsushi Sakurai (huge fan here!) and Ringo collab news, but I'm definitely not excited about this album. Honestly, I think it'll be worse than Sunny.

Maybe. I'm suspending judgment til I hear the album in its full context. Based on the available tracks I think it could def be a more cohesive listen at least. Having 獣ゆく細道 come in after 鶏と蛇と豚 does it a ton of favors, and the new/old tracks seem more evenly distributed throughout.

And I am the only one who thinks the autotune is actually an interesting effect on 鶏と蛇と豚? Then again I don't find autotune as distasteful as others here (to each his own!)

The autotune didn't bother me either so you're not alone. I actually enjoyed the instrumentation a lot. It felt very "Hatsukoi Shoujo" meets "Superficial Gossip" in a good way. The Buddhist chanting was also a nice touch.

As far as the new album goes, I really wish we'd get an album full of all new material too. I think we all want that. Maybe Ringo read all the comments EMFers made about her albums post-Adult and she was like "yeah, fuck that"

I find the instrumentation to mainly sound like the opening track from Daihakken

Just listened to new single, yeah, nice instrumentation but the autotune is totally unnecessary.... And I'm not even an autotune hater, I think it has it's uses...

I actually liked the single
I didn't loved it, of course, it's very nu-Ringo as most of her songs after 2005 are
but I wouldn't skip it if it came randomly in a playlist

I had to re-listen to it, since I heard it at 4 am and couldn't turn up the volume. The monk chants give me faint illusions to KZK, because they are some what haunting. I don't mind the auto-tune but it could have been a lot less abrasive and given off the impression (if any) that was intended.


I thought the lyrics were in English and they are. They feel strange. I saw them posted on the YouTube upload and thought "is that a translation?" nope lol.

Lmao. I love it. It's definitely a statement

To be fair the limited edition cover is cropped slightly better:

Can't even make a joke about it for the joke of the cover itself is too strong.
