Thanks, ARUTO! It's funny how they are not using "so i" in this CM even though it has a PV...

^ At this point, I wonder if "so I" will be used to promote the album or if it's just a "bonus content" they added to the DVD, since the album is almost here and "WONDER Bolt" is being used as the promo track instead.

I'm not sure who said it might sound like Hocus Pocus, but he or she couldn't have been more wrong!

I ADORE the album! Seriously fantastic. It's a bit in the same vein as 8EIGHT8, only this time witbout the annoying Ring a Ding Dong cutesy tune. I mean, Wonder VOLTS sort of fills that position, but that doesn't annoy me nearly as much. Cherry Blossom surprised me as I liked it a lot - despite me dreading the song, thinking it would be the bazillionth sakura mid-tempo love ballad. There's nice variation here. I'm definitely getting it.

I don't get care if she's less popular than before (selfish, I know), if she keeps on churning out great music like this I won't mind : P

I thought I would not like Sync as much as I love 8EIGHT8 but I have to say that both are my favourites, Sync is like a second part of 8EIGHT8 and I loved it, every song, even "so i"
I am probably going to play the album nonstop for the next 2 weeks or more ahahaha
coffee, sorry and Cherry Blossom are my favoutires, as expected, but the other new songs are amazing!

And, gosh, I love this woman! She never disappoints me! <3

This album leaves me a bit cold after the first listen. While is good overall, with some awesome tracks here and there ("coffee", "Synchronicity", "Merry Go Round" and "WONDER Volt" + "Mamireru" are the best ones) I feel like it lacks the "Kaela touch", that even "HOCUS POCUS" had. Dunno.

Overall, it's a nice album, but not at the same level of "8EIGHT8".

I never said it might sound like HOCUS POCUS.  I said the Sync's clown cover art reminded me of the of the overly childish design of HOCUS POCUS.

So that comment was directed at me. Should've known.  C28268d64cb614f8844920c1b302440aff8ddd1f_r

I never said that Sync sounded like HOCUS POCUS. What I meant was I had an initial opinion that Sync could end up like HOCUS POCUS as one of my least favorite albums overall after listening to the previews, because I wasn't feeling most of them. Some of the songs I like on Sync had really forgettable previews.

Listening to the full album though, my opinion has changed. It does have some boring tracks, but overall I love it. It doesn't beat my current favorites, +1 and Scratch, however. It ties with 8EIGHT8 as my third favorite album right now.

And just because...album ranking from most favorite to least favorite:
+1 > Scratch > Sync = 8EIGHT8 > Circle > HOCUS POCUS

Still haven't listened to her first album yet. I think I want to now.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. smiley: smile

listened to the album today, nothing really stood out as being that good. but to be fair, i listened to most of it on on the train with my Steve Jobs quality earphones so it wasn't a fair listen. some of the songs sounded like they might be good but i'll have to actually listen to the album again so i can hear the songs before i make judgments.

I know right?  Both HERO & MY WAY were good enough to be singles.  BTW, WONDER Volt should've been released during Halloween & squashed that awful HALLOWEEN JUNKY ORCHESTRA single. 7ed16369b2478598ce6f55746fa66118356979de_r

Really? haha for me, "HERO" and "MY WAY" are quite meh and forgettable. "HERO" sounds like a HOCUS POCUS track (which is not bad, but not my thing) and "MY WAY" goes nowhere imo. "Synchronicity" or "Merry Go Round" would have been great singles (and "coffee" instead of "Sun shower"...)

So I isn't that bad, I really like the verses, the "chorus" is a mess though.
HERO is my favorite ♥ so funky and cool! Cherry Blossom is cute and fresh too, really liking it!
MY WAY could have been awesome but it gets boring after the first chorus.. Still not liking WONDER Volt, the intro and verses are great, but I really can't get into the chorus.
coffee will probably grow on me, it's very soothing and relaxing. The rest of the album was okay-ish, nothing spectacular (incl. singles which were probably some of the weakest tracks lol)
Not my favorite album at all, but it has some nice tracks

Ouch... only half of her last album sales! I feel very sorry for her and can't believe she was on Top with Butterfly and Ring a Ding Dong 2 years ago.
