I love it before the "chorus" I specially like the part where it gets a funky beat. But it ain't bad... we'll just have to edit that part out when it comes lol

Agreed completely. Hopefully there's enough to play around with so it can be edited well

Not feeling the trailer/song. The sound of the production is too ubiquitous, not unique at all. And the editing of the video is so haphazard it was giving me a headache. Couldn't focus on anything.

She really should have worked with Porter Robinson. He created a whole album and artist concept inspired by things like Simple & Clean and that sound (+anime, Final Fantasy, Jpop, Japanese cyberpunk culture, etc.)



What a wasted opportunity.

The track with Skrillex isn't bad, but it's very adapted to his style, which I am not a fan of.

I liked the song until the dubstep kicks in. And yes about it sounding dated, I was under the impression that music was starting to move away from that.

Still looking forward to hearing the full version, though.

I really don't get this strange disease "if I don't like the artistic outcome, I'll go there, cut and edit it" that afflicts Utada fans. Jeez.

There are a lot of failed musicians in Utada's fandom. There's a reason why she is one of the best selling artists in Japan history while they just edit people out of her songs because they get annoyed everytime she collabs with someone who doesnt fit their otaku fantasy.

Hmmm, it lacks the immersive and interesting atmosphere that earlier themes had. That extra layer that gives it more depth.

Like it's almost there, but it's not.

I will enjoy it as a hikki song but I would prefer more as the theme of the game.

I don't get why people get mad at people who doesn't like the "artistic" outcome of a song. Damn, they will edit and listen themselves, their headphones on, their edit, jeez.

I also hated the Skrilex dated addition. It's the worst type of dated style imho hahaha I will be a really sad person when new artists revive dubstep era of pop music in ten or twenty years from now lol

But I also know I'll be listening to it one thousand times because Utada lmao

Peace, guys. You like it, listen to it. You don't, edit, cut it out, make it bearable to your ears and that's it. The art she wanted to deliver will always be there, available when one misses it. Let's enjoy the joy of living in the XXI century and being able to do these kind of stuff. Chill.

(my dream is to edit KOHH out of Bokyaku, but I'm too lazy got that, so I just skip it sometimes)

I LOVED DON'T THINK TWICE <3

I liked Don't Think Twice, but didn't like some parts she decided to put addlibs instead of writing a piece of lyrics. Maybe I'm too used to Chikai. Or I can write a lyric himself, record, edit and replace it on my own playlist as a good Utada fan!!

Shades aside (and this one above was a joke haha), I agree you can like or dislike whatever you want and even make your own versions of it, it's your criteria. What bothers me the most is when fans go to social media bash people like Jevon because they didn't like his flow in Too Proud (and months later praising that heinous attemptive of Utada rapping, but this is another issue) or uploading "the real" Take 5 "complete version". These are the kind of actions that I find disrespectful, but that's just me.

One thing is disliking a work from an artist.

Another thing is literally editing someone out of the work they had part on. And sharing it all over the internet saying you saved said work. People don't announce those shit as fanmixes or remixes or whatever, what I think would be pretty ok. They announce that as they were fixing the work.

There's no respectful way of doing that. Actually, this is a very assholeish thing to do.

I didn't see any mention that the remastered albums would be released physically.
I think the Skrillex collab is decent. But I do agree it sounds slightly outdated. Skrillex had his moment quite a few years ago now. His style isn't relevant like it was in the beginning of the decade. I wasn't expected the new themes to be better than the previous ones anyway. I guess overall it's still worth listening to.

KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK SCREAM

I actually wrote parts fro BoA's kiss my lips chorus cause I felt it was too empty with just "kiss my lips" and instrumental and would sing it whenever I listened to the song LMAO

About the saving the song blablablabla thing, yeah, I agree. That's disrespectful, for sure. I guess I would say the song is "saved", but more of jokingly and say it to jy friends only lol saddens me people can be THIS disrespectful. And I don't see myself saying something like this on Twitter, saying I saved their work, mentioning any artist involved. It's plain disrespectful and that's it...

PS: what is the take 5 complete version? Hahahah

(and damn who doesn't like Jevon's part?! It's so fun and good lol)

I'm okay with the sound but I find the drop really empty-sounding... like it needs more bassy pizzazz at the back hahah (clearly not a musician cos I can't describe it)


EDIT: Has this new profile image of hers been shared? Noticed it when the Spotify This is Utada Hikaru playlist changed the thumbnail to this pic. It's on her official website's profile as well.

It's a fanmix with a "proper ending" for the song.

And of course you can joke around with your friends about the music being shit and needing to be saved, or some parts removed, etc. But removing people from the song and saying now the track is saved all over the internet is just plain rude.

Or when people replaced the original You & Me mix on the LOVE Again album for the orchestral one and shared it online as it was the offical release, this is also really disrespectful to the artist.

As far as I'm concerned people are free to do whatever they want to the tracks and share them if they feel like that, but there's no need to pass on the remixed version for the right one, as the jpop/kpop fandom enjoys doing sometimes.
