We're well past the actual anniversary date (Feb. 24th), but what do people think of this album ten years later? How does Sports hold up in the Tokyo Jihen/Shiina Ringo canon?

I appreciate how cohesive the new single is, even if it's inconsistent quality-wise. For the most part, Izawa's contributions are particularly messy and tonally jarring but the single overall is...

^ Late to this but agreed, Anima is the most formative album in DAOKO's career so far. It'll be exciting to see where she goes next.

Otherwise, Jessy Lanza's new album is my frontrunner for AOTY. If...

Guessing it's a Ringo track from the name? Here's to hoping it's as quality as Yasei no Doumei.

This means we're due for a new TJ album yeah?

Interesting. Haven't heard the third song yet but I'm expecting something on par with (or at least as inconsistent as) CB. I really wasn't a fan of Izawa or Kameda's contributions. The way they're...

Pretty cool for a 'comeback' PV, and digging the follow-up (or lead-up?) to the Niwatori to Hebi to Buta PV. (I guess this means SR and TJ are both canon? :P)

Definitely makes me...

Anyway, look forward to hearing the new tune and all...

I haven't consistently followed Chara in several years but her recent collab (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zn96ard6VLg) with Yuki is a bop. :wub:

Anyone else digging their new album?

To be fair, I give her credit for waiting 20 years before doing her first 'Best Of' album.

Also, LOL @ Einstein no Ringo.
