You know who else has 1.4 million followers on Instagram? C-list Hollywood celebs and singers. What an achievement. Congratulations. And I can call her fans immature if I want to, that is my opinion. If you can't take it, then you can go take a hike.

As people have previously mentioned, Namie is doing fine.

My copy of _genic finally came in the mail. I <3 Golden Touch, Stranger, Fly, Scream, Fashionista, Photogenic, and Anything. I didn't really enjoy the Engrish so much in the last album, but it's solid on _genic. I can always depend on Koda Kumi and Namie for solid music.

I got my copy a few days ago, and I have been listening to it non-stop. I have come to the conclusion that this album is probably my favorite album from the 2010's. It's much more cohesive than Uncontrolled, and I would take the RnB influenced EDM tracks on _genic over the tracks on Feel, the album really plays to Namie's strengths. Now that's not to say that I don't like Feel & Uncontrolled, both are great albums on their own, but the lack of singles made the experience of _genic much more enjoyable. To think I was one of the people that protested the lack of singles, and wanted Brighter Day on there. I can't even imagine Brighter Day on _genic now.

Ugh...

3 songs were released beforehand. Even if Hands on me was digitally released just a week beforehand, it's still different experiance when you listen to an album from start to finish without knowing any of the songs. 


+ I forgot to add that "torture who i want torture feat. hatsune miku" is a travesty to namie's discography, a title I never thought could be taked from I TO YOU

B who I want 2 b would be much better if it was a Namie-only version and fully in English. The Japanese flows well but the English version sounds better. Hastune Miku's vocaloid voice just kills the song for me. Especially since you can barely hear Namie when they both sing together

Yeah but the leaks for this album were completely different than from any other J-Pop releases I've ever seen. And both Golden Touch and Anything's music videos were uploaded onto Youtube in full. You could still use the same logic in that regards to say that they're about the same, although I see where you're coming from

What. I know you just didn't diss "I TO YOU". And the single version of "YOU ARE THE ONE feat. IMAJIN" is the biggest travesty in Namie's discography.

In Namie's Sweet July Interview she talks about putting together the album. To those debating about her involvement, you might like to read it. So Namie told the staff about her "vision" and the staff, understanding it, made the selection of 200+ demos. Apparently, Namie judges songs by their intros, so she chose the songs surprisingly quickly. However, sometimes she feels the feel of the intro and the feel of the full song aren't satisfactory. So she did ask for some songs to be changed for her. This is something she doesn't really do and she says _genic might be the first time she went so far as to ask for a song to be changed. 

Also, to the people wanting her singles on _genic, if she included them then Golden Touch would be taken off the album so THANK NAMIESUS she didn't do that because Golden Touch is the best in the album.

You have a point. It mostly had to do with my restaint and simply being busy when the hype for this album was happening. I didn't really pay attention to any of the leaks or the the short videos, and since I pre ordered my album from amazon japan, it literally arrived 1 day after the release date which surprised me. So I spent the past 2 weeks just marinating with _genic without any preconceived notions.

lmao but YOU ARE THE ONE feat. IMAJIN isn't even that bad, it's just the arrangment that's awkward. Some parts sound good, but then imajin comes in and it's like

He or she doesn't know what "travesty" means. Let's help.

travesty (noun): a false, absurd, or distorted representation of something.
