The end of Boukamin put a smile on my face, loved the kabuki reference.

Kronekodow: I was scared that this song would be so-so, since the title is the name of SR's trademark symbol. I instant-loved it.

My other big coup de coeur goes out to Tsukigime-hime <3

The other songs apart from Osca and KT will have to grow on me a bit more I guess, but overall I'm satisfied. I was afraid the no-Ringo-composed-tracks was gonna be some kind of a let down. It's not the same thing, but it's good to my ears.

Verdict: very much like.

Okay I don't hate this album.
I guess that says something.

I'm a bit dissapointed, didn't like the new version of mirrorball, Kingyo no haka got me pumped and excited, thinking this album might actually be great, then the rest of the songs I felt were uninteresting and boring
Shiseikatsu felt dissapointing the first few times
Also it's sad that one of the better parts of this album is a line copied out of kabuki
(please don't hit me )
Kronekodow sounds like drunk russians making japanese music (it had a ninja sound to it right? Reminds me of the Russian Ninja Burgler in Italy )

OSCA and Killer tune felt like a liberation when they came along, I mean I liked these more than most others... so maybe the rest will sound better in a week or so ^^
Tsukigime hime was a really good song imo

Well I'm not disappointed... it's what I was expecting. Not many bad songs... but not too many great songs either.

Kingyo no Hako is alright up until the My Chemical Romance guitar solo... I've never had the urge to actually cut a part out of an mp3 until now...

Mirrorball is better than the JCHI version (which I never liked), but it's still meh. Shiseikatsu is a very crappy version of Superstar.

And I don't really remember anything else... I'm only half way through my second listen.

Oh and I've decided I really don't like Killer Tune... not that I ever really liked it, I've just come to the realization I just can't deal with the chorus anymore.

OSCA > All.

Decent album.

What a surprise, Killer Tune was the best song on the album...
Well, I liked Ramp, SSAW and Metro. Kingyo no Hako, Shiseikatsu and Sake to Geko were really good.
But the rest? Shit.
Kronekodow sounds like this albums Ekimae, Mirrorball, Tsukigime-hime and Boutomin are just crap, and what the hell is up with Fukushuu? That song sounds like any other rock-/metal wannabe on MTV.
Maybe Boutomin could have been good if it was only sung by Shiina. Maybe.
Somehow I hate Uki even more after this album, don't ask me why.

I hope this will be phase 4:




All this is just my opinion, I can't say anything about how good or bad the songs really "are"

Sorry, but where on HMV it says "Ramp"? Couldn't find it...

Oh, and I think it's a great album, by the way!
I hope my CD doesn't take too long to arrive.

It says so on the English version of hmv.co.jp.
