Overall I like it. Because on second listening I was content with what I've heart. But first time was different.
First disk I listened with vague sense of 'blah' inside of my head. It's like I was expecting something different. Well, I definitely was - this jazzy sound they have lately is really not the direction I thought they'll go in. Most songs went right over my head as if I wasn't listening at all.
Which ones I've heard? Energy, Futari no namida ame, Sayonara wa itsumo, Goujou ni GO!
Obachan rock is only different because of the different talk parts (but the big-bandish version is nice)
Zukkoke and Kanfuu are nice too, but I was more concentrated on new songs.
But second disk redeemed it all.
Subaru is good, even if it's not what I usually like.
Yasu sounds so much better in studio version (god, he really needs to do something with his voice - 2 cons and he's already hoarse). THIS time I really like the song.
Maru is very cute. I don't even mind that it wasn't ballad (I want to hear Maru singing ballads!)
Mamoritai is still beautiful, but still not as good as Butterfly. And why they took backvocal out of it?
Wonder Boy is still major LOVE! I hope you like your solo as much as I do, Yokoyama-kun!
Damn it, Hina, I just realised that I remember the chorus of your solo! lol, even more, I've been humming it from time to time without thinking about you at all :) sorry m-_-m
Ah, Stereo. Still good. But the difference between the concert tape and the studio version is like with One. And Yasu's backvocal was the best part! Jeez. It sounds smoother, and the song is still pretty, but... but... Ryo really improved to the point when his live versions sounds better than studio ones (with totally unnecessary effects - hope it wasn't your idea, R-kun?). Good thing, no?
ARGH, gimme con tape! I love you, girl, for capturing this beautiful song in all its beauty!
Subaru, you totally sucked in Itsuka Mata.
I love your messy talk, you retards. I simply love you. I love Yoko's laugh, I love Hina's hiccups, I love Su's weird voice, Ryo's embarrassed voice, Tacchon's mixups, Maru's shouting, Yasu's squeals... and I miss one more voice *sigh*
