Having heard it a few times I do really enjoy it. It starts off really strong with the first 3 tracks. Zokkondition is pure fun.
Despite talks of starting new I do feel there's a expected continuation from where Love Letter left off. Lots of more loungy jazzy tracks and more complex instrumentations. Re:NAME is still the most different sounding one.
I think if I were to criticize, the middle doesn't grab me all that much. It's like I hear some good ideas but I never feel satisfied in how they were fleshed out. Lai Lai would be a good example of that. Instrumentation too is a little less diverse than her usual form, but at the same time it's a lot more refined. There's some great drum and guitar work. Not sure who's responsible for those, it's probably a group effort.
Love Letter still remains my favorite of hers, and I guess for loving it so much I was bound to be more critical of a follow up than if otherwise. But there is still some great work in here, I just think the album will fall into a more middle-of-the-road status as a whole which there's nothing really wrong with.
More More is by far my favorite in just about every aspect. I listen to it in the morning and it gets me all excited for the day. I'm not even a morning person.

Learned Zokkondition on guitar last weekend. It's pretty fun. I can't wait until there's some more footage of these tracks' recent live versions.
