I don't know how to feel about this if it has "idol" as an adjective. Granted most of her songwriting is piano/voice centered regardless of how it ends up finalized, so there probably won't be a big change in songs at their core. I'll have to hear those new songs.

Love Fantastic was actually pretty consistent by her standards. I thought she would keep going with that.

I do not care if she is yodeling and playing a kazoo. I will buy her albums and attend her concerts no matter what.

"reach for the moon" and "End And And" don't sound like 90s pop or very Idol-ish to me. Shocked It's definitely just electronic pop. But she has been gradually shifting to a more electronic style since "Lucky Star" (followed by Action 10.5, the AIO Punch album, and Fu Fu Fu) so this isn't really a big surprise.
However, I'm not sure if this is what I really want her to do. Sure, at the end of the day she can do whatever she wants but I just miss her epic ballads and pop-rock songs a lot. Sad

Still really excited for that new album though!

Oh you need to hear Time Machine (I have a bad recording of it, I might upload later) or Parallel World ^^
It's honestly really electronic idol-like. Maybe like early major works of Perfume (Linear Motor Girl..).
I don't expect any epic ballads like she released before. Maybe, if I should compare, something like MOONLIGHT from LOVE IT.
It's still a really surprising direction ! I'm not sure it's gonna work, but I'm not Japanese, they might enjoy it, or not at all. Now, what next ? Is she gonna dance too ? ^^

I think if we should put the idol adjective to any of her songs, it would definitely be SMILY, PEACH, etc....

I'm not the kind of obsessed fan who follows her blindly and likes everything she does no matter what, but I really like that she has experimented a lot with her music, something that the "normal" pop singer never does.

"End and and" sounded ok, nothing special but I can't say I dislike it. Reach for the moon doesn't sound too electronic, it has more of a lunge vibe.

I have to add that even if I don't believe she sounds like 90's jpop or Perfume's early works.
Both 90's jpop and Perfume's early works are awesome and a lot better than 90% of the jpop we have now.

Do you have recordings of Parallel World and Time Machine, LittleBigHeart? Meow

She, indeed, had a lot of idol-ish songs at the beginning of her career (Hello "Sakuranbo" !). And it's like she's coming back to this, with a slightly different sound though.

Did you mean lounge vibe ? If so, that's definitely the case ! That's also my favourite from all the new songs. It's relaxing, yet sad. It's like the song when you listen to it, you close your eyes, and get to another dimension haha.

Time Machine is really Linear Motor Girl-like, like I mentionned before. That's why the expression "Technopop Idol" can be used here, especially with Parallel World and Time Machine. For End, and and ~10,000 Hearts~, it sounds like Rising Sun from Exile ^^
I have all 4 songs in full... and in bad quality ! I'm going to upload it right now !

EDIT:
A bit busy actually, so here is Reach to the moon, and I will upload the rest later Smile

Reach to the Moon sounds nice. I like the atmospheric qualities of it.

I'm also not one to blindingly like someone's output but thinking about it I still enjoyed her earlier more idol-ish songs. She has a certain style to her songs that transcends albums and even the most polarizing styles. I'd say that's what allows her to try all these different musical fields while still being identifiable. It's pop after all which really revolves around the core song.

As long as she keeps being herself through her music, I'll have reason to be optimistic.

And I'm all for some kazoo on the next album.

Thanks LittleBigHeart! Smile

Parallel World sounds really interesting. As for the Reach to the Moon I like the part that starts around 1:50. Very relaxing.

Parallel World sounds interesting indeed. It reminds me of 360, put a little bit more... pop-ish? (if that makes sense Laughing)

reach for the moon sounds okay for now...

OMG! Parallel World sounds so good!! Boogie Boogie Love Love Love Love
It has a very samba/brazilian rhythm...I wouldn't call it idol sounding at all.

I think that if I would describe the styles of her new songs, I'd say there are elements of house, lounge and acid jazz. Which is a direction I really like.
While I like the grooves of the songs I think the melodies aren't really too interesting.

I can't wait to hear Time Machine, if it sounds like Linear Motor Girl I think I will like it.
Boogie


If she's releasing a new album next year I hope she has a tour during the summer so I can attend. But seeing she hasn't released any single yet, she wil probably release the album in fall or winter hmm
