Wah, how kind of you! Sankyuu very much!

I love the music video by the way. Solita looks a little strange, but the song is great Smile

Listen closely this album, this isn't bad as i thought. This album is great! Her voice in's bad (ex: Toumei no Kagi, Kajitsu no Keikoku ...). Listen this album many times, you'll love it! Please support Kanon by buying her CD! I've just loved whole album recently!

The PV is pretty Smile The book effect is absolutely amazing, I love it. But yeah, this Solita girl doesn't really fit, she's a total downer...

Thank you for the album! Smile

I thought the album was nice and quality-wise it's on the same level as "Shinshoku Dolce", which is a good thing Smile. Some of the songs on it aren't that strong, but I love the prologue, "Dokushouka Himegimi", "Kuroneko to Pianist no Tango" and "Marmelade Sky" a lot Love.

The album is wonderful!! Love Love Love Love
Kanon really composes amazing songs, better songs than the ones by Mana Laughing
My favorites are definitely Celmisia and Kuroneko to Pianist no Tango Love


Here's a little review:


1. Shakespeare no Wasuremono ~Prologue~ : 5/5
This song was beautuful, it was better than "Sweet Ticket" from her first album.
The cellos sound so sweet Love Kanon composed this song Love

2. Kajitsu no Keikoku 5/5
This song reminds me so much of Shinku no Feetarizumu. I love the instrumentation of it. The chorus is awesome Meow

3. Dokushoka Himegimi 4/5
This song is really different than anything Kanon has made. When I first listened to it and heard the drum machine going like that I thought Kanon changed to somo kind of annoying pop Shocked But then the cello and voice entered and I fell in love with the song Giggle

4. twinkle star ! 4/5
I loved the chorus of this song. It reminded me of "Madrigal" by Malice Mizer. The only thing I don't like is that Mana's songs start to sound all the same hmm So I'm glad Kanon also composed songs for this album xD

5. Toumei no Kagi 5/5
This song is the only dark song on this album, contrary to her first album. I loved the sound of the organ and the cello. The cello at the end of the song sounds wonderful Love

6.Marmalade Sky 5/5
This song is one of my favorites from the album. Very sweet song. Kinda like "skip turn step".
The verses reminded me of "Maboroshi" and the prechorus reminded me or "L'Espoir" Giggle

7. Kuroneko to Pianist no Tango 5/5
This song is exquisite Laughing I absolutely love everything of it. The piano sounds awesome.
And the best thing is that it actually sounds like Tango...not like "Hoshi no Tango" by some girl I know Tongue Laughing

8. Princess Charleston 3/5
I didn't really like this song too much hmm it's weird and I still don't understand it well xD Her voice is kinda weird too.
Maybe I'll like it with the time. This song is like "Annyiu Kinbun" from her previous album, I didn't like it at the beginning but then started to like it Laughing

9. Tree of Sorrow 4/5
I really liked this song. It's not too special like the other songs from the album but it sounds nice. Unfurtunately it has the Mana effect that makes it sound the same as all the songs from her first album, MALICE MIZER and Mix dix Mois Laughing


10. Celmisia 10000000/5 Laughing
This song is wonderful. It's my favorite from the album. Kanon definitely can compose beautiful songs Love The melody is so surreal. I love the part when she hits those high notes. The cello is great to.
I love the end of the song where she plays with her voice like on a bach piece Love

11. Otome no March 5/5
This song was very nice. Sweet and really different than what she has done before. Sounds like a song but I can't remember which Confused Laughing

12. Shakespeare no Wasuremono ~Epilogue~ 4/5
Nice but kinda boring if you don't want to sleep Laughing

13. Shoujo no Long Tittle 3/5
I think this is the weakest song in the album. Has Mana's generic sound and that solita girl kinda ruin it (specially in the PV). It's still nice, but not as nice like the other songs.



Overall this is one of my favorite realeases for this year Love Love Love
Splendid album Boogie Boogie Boogie

Nice review, Rodri Meow I think I'll review it too, but boy is she ever in for it...

01. Shakespeare no Wasuremono -Epilogue/Prologue-
A lot like "Sweet ticket" and "Sweet dreams" were on her last album. They sound great and awesome and all. Tongue Both get a 4/5

02. Kajitsu no Keikoku
Most. Amazing. Song. Ever. Totally kicked "Shinku no Fatarhythm" and "Kuroi Torikago" in the ass for me. Boogie Love 5/5

03. Dokushoka Himegimi
Pretty cool song. The chorus is pretty fantastic, and with the way the music is going, it sounds like it belongs in some kind of video game Tongue 4.5/5

04. Twinkle Star!
It's so cute...so sweet...too much of both. I didn't really like that she's moving away from her "evil girl" image, but she'll do what she wants, I suppose. 1/5

05. Toumei no Kagi
Ahhh, that's more like it Giggle Such a sinister-sounding song. It definitely sounds like it came from the "Shinshoku Dolce" era, but that's probably because it was an in-between kinda song. Still one of the best songs on this album, and would be if not for "Kajitsu no Keikou". 5/5

06. Marmalade Sky
Seriously, another cute song? More mid-tempo, less ear-diabetes...a lot like "Maboroshi" was, actually. Pretty meh if you asked me hmm 2/5

07. Kuroneko to Pianist no Tango
I love this song. I love the tango rhythm, so damn infectious Boogie But she sounds like she's putting more of an weird stress on her voice. The "meoooow!" parts get me every time Laughing 4.5/5

08. Princess Charleston
The rhythm is so cool in this song. I love the saloon feel to it, but again, her voice. 3.5/5

09. Tree of Sorrow
Oh, hello there Kanon that I'd been waiting for in the last 3 songs! Boogie This definitely follows the drum-machine, strings formula, but at this point, I'd take anything over Marmalade Sky... 3/5

10. Celmisia
Wow...absolutely entrancing. Dark, creepy, a little bit of cute thrown in there, but overall, this song sounds really cool. The whisper-singing in the beginning reminds me of Rurutia, but it develops into a pushing track that won't let go. Fantastic Smile 4.5/5

11. Otome no March
Still on the fence with this song. There's just so much sugar in the music, but not so much in her voice, which confuses me. Even the music drops off at some parts. So... 3/5

13. 2139027y8e9wfdszxcioured feat. Solita
A really cool song. The Zombie doesn't do much for the song, but her creepy whisper-singing does add a little bit here and there and it comes off as cool. Maybe if she sang like she was into it, and not like "why am I even here?", she would sound better. At least it has the most amazing PV of this month Nod 4/5

A strong album, but not in the middle. I'd rather skip the few songs in the middle, but apart from that, this album was a real treat for the ears. Nod

Maa, I think I'm more with Rodri in terms of my opinion on the album. 'celmisia' and "Kuroneko to Pianist no Tango" are easily my favorite songs. Although really, I'm a big fan of LOLITAWORK LIBRETTO. solita's a downer in the PV, but her voice adds some interest to the song. I like the PV a lot as well Smile

I'd say it's on par with Shinshoku Dolce right now, because it offers more of a light-hearted feel than the debut album had, which is refreshing. Her voice is a lot better as well! I really liked it in 'celmisia'.

I feel bad for Solita ... I feel like she's getting a bad rep just for this one song -__-
I recommend listening to Tokyo et Paris for Solita

Can't weigh in on the album yet. Listening to it now.

^ Yeah..I actually love Tokyo et Paris Love Love

It's just that in this song she is just like a zombie.... Blank stare Laughing
On the PV she's just sitting with a bored face...she's supposed to be reading a book, she should have a more "excited" expression Laughing

^ Maybe... It doesn't mean the song is bad, though. She does have the right kind of voice for the song that she was in

This album is definitely getting better with every listen Smile

Lolitawork Libretto English Translate:
(I in my dream) A girlish mechanism
(My beloved , can you hear me?) Of a music box
(I in my dream) In a picture book
(My beloved , can you hear me?) Waits for her
Itís a crescent moon tonight
The scent of peppermint
Softly, the city lights
Adorn the lace dress
The dripping moon
Drops into darkness
Stops time
Solita: The girlish mechanism of a clockís beenm stolen
Kanon: Is the girl in her?
Solita: Turn back time!
Kanon: Listen carefully to the music box
A magical carriage stops before her
What kind of world will it take her to?
(I in my dream) A girlish mechanism
(My beloved , can you hear me?) Of a music box
(I in my dream) In a picture book
(My beloved , can you hear me?) Waiting for her
(Hurry!) Meaningless play
(Silence!) A waltz that buzzes in my ear
(Help) A fantasy which there is no return
(Stop!) She canít hear
(Wake up)
A sky sparkling with diamonds
A castle of vanilla cream
The speed of the wheels quietly
Make a noise on the rails of the clockís second hand
A magical country spreads before her eyes
What world will she become a part of
(I in my dream) A girlish mechanism
(My beloved , can you hear me?) Of a music box
(I in my dream) In a picture book
(My beloved , can you hear me?) Is her
(I in my dream) A girlish mechanism
(My beloved , can you hear me?) Of a music box
(I in my dream) In a picture book
(My beloved , can you hear me?) Remains unmoving
(Hurry!) Meaningless play
(Silence!) A waltz that buzzes in my ear
(Help) A fantasy which there is no return
(Stop!) She canít hear
(Wake up)
(Wake up)
Wake up

Thanks for the lyrics! I love them! There's something about them that's so whimsical, but exciting and curious at the same time.
