edit: By the way, can any of you guys tell the English she's saying in the pre-chorus in Michi? 'Only you can (something something something) even when you're not around.' It's been driving me nuts. I wanna know~~~

I found it on the web, not sure if it's 100% correct.

First pre-chorus:
Only you can hear me now...
... And I hope you'll hear me out.
It's so puzzling here when we're off...

Second pre-chorus:
Only you can show me love...
... Even when I'm all alone.
Only you can make me fall...

So, because for some reason this is really driving me crazy, I did some research of my own.

I used Adobe Audition, removed the main vocals twice, upped the backup vocals, and used my Sony Dynamic Stereo Professional headphones to listen in and this is what I got.

First pre-chorus:

Only you can hear me now
And I hope you'll hear me out
Yes (maybe guess) I finally came around.


Second pre-chorus

Only you can show me love
Even when you're not around
Only you can make me found


Edit: Apparently only you can make me found is written in the physical album. My bad everyone. I tried my best. But thank you for the corrections!

With the rest, however, this it is still all subjective until Utada (if Utada) tells us herself. I remember the whole "Passion" confusion when the official lyrics were finally released and most of us were so puzzled because some parts were so not what we thought they were. but I'm pretty confident in what I heard this time around. Though if anyone knows of any other differences please tell me because it's been driving me nuts. xD

Isn't you make me found? If I'm not mistaken, this second part is written in her physical album, where you put the CD, you know? behind it. If anyone has the physical album, would mind taking a look for us?

(lol me and the person above posted the same thing at the same time lol)

That would totally explain that weird sound I heard! It wasn't the effects, it was a completely different word! xD
I do not own the physical CD so I have noooooooooooooooooooooooooo idea. (once I have the money, I'll definitely buy it. It's too beast for me not to own.)

But y'all got me two against one and seem to have reliable resources. xD 'Found' it is. Though I'd still like to see that written on the physical album because I'm anal like that. xD

This album is pure perfection! It's so simple, minimalistic, yet so rich.

First I liked "Kouya no Ookami" and "Boukyaku" most. Then started liking "Ore no Kanojo" and "Tomodachi". The least I like is "Hanataba wo Kimi ni". Album is so Japanese, it's perfect to listen while wandering around in Kyoto.

I wish she did some live!

The numbers disagree on you. And not being radio friendly is not a bad thing at all. To appeal a commercial audience we have Kpop, Koda Kumi, and lots of other artists. Hikki has reached a point in her career that if she wanted to release a album full of rain sounds, she could.

I'm glad it's selling so good, but such album wouldn't make me her fan. For me it's too different from her best works.

^^thx UHPlus love it
i hoped for that alternative cover since the promo pic came out lol

^well you never know Chris85...
i got into Björk with her Medúlla album which she made her beats of voices/acapella stuff and it's still her hardest album to get into her, but she made me still a fan...
so i think even it's not commercial af there a many people out there who probably got into her through Fantôme!

still glad she's selling well and i expect Michi to get the PV treatment!!

26,587 copies yesterday?!!! This longevity is scary!!! She will pass 400k this week and 500k is a REAL possibility now. If she releases the new PV just in time, she may fight for 600k.

She will pass the 500k for sure. Right now have a little less sales than Uncontrolled (that sold around 550k), but Fantome even have a better week 2 than Namie's album. I think it will have more longetivity so the 600k sales can happen.

Any new albums this week that might end Utada's streak? Because I know for sure Arashi would end that streak, but their album is scheduled to release in two weeks' time...

But hey, two weeks in a row at #1 is surely awesome! 500k possible? Hmm...
