my CD arrived, and listened in past 2 days. its not what i imagined to be a sequel to FEEL. Genic is even more westernized, like a collection of hits, without a coherence or concept the way FEEL has. FEEL is probably the height she will never scale again, which in no way belittles Genic. I never think her English is an issue. just that Genic does not sound like a Namie album. so far i like TimeHasCome, Birthday, Scream, Fashionista, Every Woman, Space Invader, Stranger. Golden Touch is average (with an average PV), the rest has yet to catch my attention, the Miku-collab song is weird so i skipped every time
Lyrics wise Fashionista is my fav. Perhaps Birthday should be renamed 'Carpe Diem'.
