^ I want a rerecorded "Beni"! Imagine her vocals now on "Here Alone" - still her best song ever.

I think that'd be quite nice. While I do LOVE the new Beni so much more, I enjoyed that her old sound wasn't as repetitive (as seen in "Beni" and "Gem").

Perhaps she just needs a new album where she works with Hirofumi Asamoto again. He was responsible for some of her best avex songs (Here Alone, Miracle, Breakout, Silhouette, Gems, Step, Always, Heart 2 Heart, Koi Meguri). I think an album with tracks like that, along side her newer sound, with her current vocals would be really amazing.

I can only listen to so many DI songs, without getting bored.
He makes really strong material, but then it all starts to sound similar (to itself...and to its western counterparts) smiley: tongue

I feel the need to lay out D.I's song arranging... lol

Okay, so lets say the song is called "Gotta Let You Go"

so the bell thingys in the music will start and then the synths start.

Then the music for the chorus will start but it will only sing "Gotta let you gooo" like 3 times

Then the first verse

Then the chorus will be the same as the first one but will have the full chorus including the "Gotta let you go" 's

Then the second verse
and then maybe a little pause before the second chorus

Second chorus starts

Then the bridge, he'll change up the music a little and it will die down a little as whoever is singing sings.

Then he'll set you up for a dramatic segue into the chorus, but it will just be a regular chorus

And then there's the part, as in BENI songs, where she just "oohs" and "ahhs" and makes it sound all R&B like.

Then it ends. Either fades out or ends on the bell thingys again.

TYPICAL GENERIC DAISUKE IMAI SONG. But I enjoy them.

I don't see it happening since her management do their best to erase her avex past.

^ that would imply that somebody actually bought it lol. I'm collecting all of her cds and I didn't even bother. So I guess I won't be the only one..

I don't think so, I remember they counted Girls' Generation Repackage and the original album both at the same time.

^Almost everybody already covered it, I think the best version is Mika Nakashima's one. She could cover Ken Hirai's Strawberry Sex, it could be interesting lol
