The album blooms in its theme
I don't understand a lot of your posts but this phrase sums up the album perfectly. even though it might not be her best sound it's definitely cohesive.
It's interesting to see that Kathia added "Torisetsu" to her favourites, as I can remember you didn't like that song back to its release or am I wrong?
I'm surprised about the different opinions on this; reading that the singles were a lack made me confused, in my personal opinion--at least--"Torisetsu" was her hit in years, I loved it and I'm not a fan of cute songs! Besides, it is discussed as the song which identifies her musical career. You need to accept the decline in the digital market (started 2012), to get that this song competes with "Aitakute Aitakute" or "Kimi tte" in topic of success. Also, "Torisetsu" is more famous than "Darling" - which is maybe close to compare with her "To Love" era.
I wished they replaced "Thank You Very Much" with "A Ha Ha".
It's true Serdar
I wasn't fond of Torisetsu went it came out, but it gradually became one of Kana's best "up-tempo" (?) songs for me. I think getting it promoted like crazy helped me get attached to it, I usually start to like songs better after I see them perform live several times.
I still perfer Darling over Torisetsu, but I agree that Torisetsu is closer to her "To Love" era. Darling was a HUGE success but Torisetsu had better physical sales.
Even if the digital market has been in decline and the physical sales market was in decline for lots of years now, I think Kana's career is amazing if you look at it in general. She survived those declines and sometimes makes a HIT. Her Just Love album is selling better than her with LOVE album, which is great IMO, two years has passed since and she still can sell well. I still have high hopes for 300k with Just Love, if it has a long longevity like with LOVE, it's highly possible.
Oh yeah, if the album had A ha ha instead of Thank You Very Much, I think I would LOVE this album to pieces, because I think I will like Holiday when I see it performed live but I don't think I will ever care about Thank You Very Much.
