The Japanese version didn't leak. The stolen copies of KH3 were from the US.

Saw Skrillex for New Years Eve and he played Face My Fears in full. He played the Japanese one actually. It was so beautiful and amazing. He had some KH3 footage in the background and the laser light show was amazin. Got me hyped lol

Did anyone notice they released remastered versions of Deep River, Ultra Blue and Heart Station on iTunes and Spotify? They added Simple and Clean, Sanctuary and Fly Me To The Moon to the albums.

Yeah, I looked on her site and saw that they posted about it. I'm surprised I didn't hear about the remasters earlier.

I don't have super ears so I'm not sure if they're much better than the normal versions, or the "mastered for iTunes" version of HEART STATION back in 2008.

Nah, the original recordings just get mastered again with newer techniques, so the new masters should be clearer and have more details than the original ones.

Honestly, initial listen of “Face My Fears” wasn’t that great. I like the start with piano, but then felt myself losing interest with the dubstep being introduced. Whole song felt a bit empty, to be real.

Of course this is just after one listen, so I’m not going to write it off. I’ll see how I feel about it in a week’s time.

I have similar feeling, the dubstep (or in general speaking, any EDM or sorts) kinda ruins the song for me. I think the song would have much more potential if she didn't go to this direction. I love the melody, just not the arrangement. But then, I guess she's finding new direction (after two beautiful organic albums ), and I don't mind she keeps testing as long as the final product (aka, new album) is interesting .

PS: I hope she will release a ballad version or non-dubstep version of Face My Fears in the future.

I don't mind EDM in the middle of a song, and it contrasts in a cool way with the piano intro, buuuut the dubstep used in Face my Fears itself sounds dated/empty to me. It could still have a drop or something but better. Whenever she's singing I enjoy the song, be it over the piano intro or during the verses with a eletronic beat behind her, but the breaks are too meh. I hope I get used to the song lol Don't Think Twice is still my fav song from this batch (and idk how but this time I ended up enjoying the english version, cause in the other two games I prefered the Japanese ones)
