The Face and Made In Twenty have some gems that I love, but more than any album they feel like big interchangeable playlists that don't neccesarily make a statement as a body of work. It's very Avex pumping out consecutive releases to keep hitting while the iron is hot, but I find that this had the opposite effect because the music didn't have time to grow with the audience. I have some favorites from the english album, but unfortunately it was dated on arrival by chasing trends. And the facelessness that evilsin mentioned is especially true in how much the songs flattened BoA's voice to the point that a casual listener would think she was a strong dancer who relied on autotune. Some people might even say that BoA used to be guilty of *oversinging*, so the sudden monotony of the English songs was a quick way to alienate preexisting international fans. I'm not saying that BoA is Whitney-Mariah-Aretha levels of singing and it was hidden, but she definitely has so much more to offer as a vocalist when you compare her vocal performance between The Face, BoA, Identity, and then Hurricane Venus.
