Utada Hikaru - BAD Mode

  1. I think Exodus is great for where she was but it exhibits a lot of growing pains. That said, it's an album I think she needed to make for us to have gotten ULTRA BLUE.

  2. I don't even count TiTO as a Utada album, to be honest - it sounds absolutely nothing like her.

    Loving all this praise for such a fantastic album! Really warms my heart <3
  4. Automatic Part 2 is the only dud on This Is The One.

  6. Nn but when's the song coming out. I guess the release is coinciding with the video.

    Sounds really good.

  8. That sounds really promising, and I'm already obsessed with these delicate production layers. She's truly giving us mid 00s Utada through a 2021 lens in the best way possible.

    I love Miliyah’s version of Can You Keep A Secret.

  10. No, but really.
  11. It will probably always be stuck where it is in order for me purely because of how much I love her first four alberms (I can understand why people don’t gravitate towards First love and DISTANCE on here but I also think you’re insane) but Hatsukoi really is fantastic too. The gap between them is not nearly as large as it used to be.

    (Yes it’s me having a late night lil moment with pakuchi no uta of ALL SONGS. the verses are so delicate -bottom eyes emoji-)
  12. Speaking of Distance.. I am probably one of the few people who enjoy DISTANCE (the song) to FINAL DISTANCE. The latter is touching and the story behind it heartbreaking but it’s one of those songs where I have to be in a very specific mood in order to listen. Whereas I really love the former and its breezy nostalgic vibe.

    To be honest though taking a song and completely changing the entire feeling while still keeping the lyrics and basic melody? Only a genius.

  13. the ultimate form of DISTANCE to me teebs.

    The way this sounds so disjointed but fits so well at the same time.

    Also, I love the DISTANCE album. It still sounds fresh today!
  15. DISTANCE is so underrated.

    This is definitely the best upbeat version of the song. The PLANITb remix also slaps!

  16. Generous queen. At least one whole English track on the album!

  17. Legend. She's so easy to stan. I adore how committed to her music she is.

  18. Watch the English song just be Face My Fears sksksk (bop though!). The fact that she's talking about an ALBUM at all makes me happy.

    How does PINK BLOOD still not have a release date? I've played that 1:30 snippet too much already. I just love how warm all the songs from this era are so far.

    It actually just got one, June 2. Also love the new artist photo, I hope the album shoot's along this style.

  20. I guess PINK BLOOD was supposed to be released earlier but they had to push it back because of the Evangelion movie delay and the big success of One Last Kiss (her 2nd most watched video on youtube).
