High repetition matters when it is done mindlessly without any sort of finesse. Like Hata's screaming. And bad writing.

I agree with you about sa_i_ta's ending. I skip it over all the time once the main bits are over.

--You live in Tokyo, right?
Hata: Yeah, but there are raccoon dogs. Around where I live. There are also toddy cats and martens. I saw the dead crow and felt sorry for it, so I thought I'd bury it in my friend's field. But then a bunch of crows came clamoring. They didn't attack me, but I thought they seemed sad in some way. That night I found a raccoon dog dead in front of my house. It was still warm.
--So, the crow and raccoon dog line is a true story.
Hata: Same with the cat being eaten by a hawk. A guy at an onsen I stayed at in Yamanashi told me about it. Basically, the lyrics are about deaths that have occurred near me.
--Everything that lives in the universe, actually, does not really want to die--the lyrics are your view of life and death in a way.
Hata: Yes. But at the same time I think my own fascination with death is in there as well.

From: here.
whoa, oh my god. Didn't realize they were publishing official English translations of the interviews/liner notes. Ahh! Exciting! (Funny though, they keep linking to the members' statements on the band breaking up but those aren't translated officially.) I can't figure out where they're all linked from though? Are there more?

I just noticed this in the translated liner notes, about the color bars interlude in Discovery:

At the end, the dancing bands became color bars, and at the moment the audience’s gaze was directed from the screen to the stage, the five Incidents members appeared, with pomp and circumstance, accompanied by the explosive intro to “Queen of Kabuki-cho”
lol, I wish it was

Whee, my vote just pushed sa_i_ta into the top!

...should I duck?

I liked Honto no Tokoro slightly more after reading that interview, but that's not really saying much. There's probably going to be no getting over my disturbing first impression of that song for me. I was kind of shocked when I listened to it, first by the notion that this would be their final song (as in last song on their last release - before Tokyo Collection was announced though), and then again after "why he is he chanting about the dead cat?" gave way to "wait, when you consider how much cat imagery is associated with Ringo, this becomes KIND OF WEIRD."

Ha! You're right, in the Japanese it says "Kabuki." I wonder who they got to do this translation? It looks like it's the only one so far.

Ukigumo's sa_i_ta is my favorite song out of the bunch. Ringo's track is my second favorite. Kameda's is okay. And the other two I never ever listen to. I just can't with Izawa.
