Yes! I agree with you. Although part of me thinks maybe Warner is forcing her to do it this way, but who knows? Maybe not because they did have separate websites for her personalities and such. Since she's switched labels though, the only single personality release has been monochrome rainbow, which is too bad.

I'm not understanding all this hate at all. I personally love all the spoken word stuff. It's cool and theatrical and fun. If you don't like, don't listen to it, don't buy it, easy as that. But you don't have to get so pressed over it. The James Addiction guys have been appearing in her videos for four years now, so I think it's nice that they have a more active part in them now, rather than being some anonymous fake band thing.

They *are* an anonymous fake band "thing". scratch

If you like it then great, you'll be one of the few who will probably purchase this one. It'll be interesting to see what the numbers are.

Welcome to the forum Retrograde6! Very Happy
I just don't like how stupid sounding the Carnival spoken word sounds. I have no problem with the two James'.
The spoken word parts in I'M YOUR DEVIL -halloween remix- are amazing.

I really enjoy all their appearances in the various heavenly6/february6/TBG videos. I just don't like the blatant hype of The James Addiction in a Tommy heavenly6/Tommy february6 release. I'm still gonna buy it and enjoy it.

Eh, it just seems like a harmless bit of fun, not "blatant hype" to me. They're probably just "featured" on that one spoken word bit. A minute or so of them in a spoken word addition on a Halloween single is nothing to get so worked up over, IMO. It's not like all of Tommy's songs from now on are going to be duets with them, lol. And even if you don't like the "Carnival" bit, I think the "Shadow light princess" part sounds awesome. I really hope the video delivers.

Okay, I will admit the Shadow part was kind of interesting. Who knows? maybe the song as a whole will work wonderfully.

I still wanna get my copy, at least the package seems to be cool :/
I mean, we kinda knew that this release would be like a new I'M YOUR DEVIL, with the song mixed to some spoken/theatrical parts... Maybe if we listened to the song all split up before, we would think the same about I'M YOUR DEVIL!
Anyway... I guess I'm just trying to be optimistic because I was really broke when I bought this XD

I downloaded the whole album cuz I'm anxious and I can't wait XD

The whole song is actually pretty cool but not near as epic as the previous releases.
However, a nice thing to do is play the album on shuffle... you'll get Lollipop Candy DEVIL PARTY NIGHT -HALLOWEEN REMIX- XD

I really enjoyed the full version, but I agree that it's not quite as epic as I'M YOUR DEVIL. I think it's partly because of how it just ends abruptly with Heavenly6's song? I think if there was one more spoken word bit at the end to wrap everything up it would have felt more cohesive to me, but overall I give it 8 out of 10 stars.

While I still don't like the carnival part very much, the other spoken word parts are quite wonderful, and the song works as a whole. The two actual songs are amazing.

Well I ordered it with the AMOYAMO single so it won't be shipped until that is released, so I downloaded the single. Haven't had chance to listen to it yet, but I think I know what to expect from the previous Halloween singles and the reactions here. I think we all expected a drawn out thing with lots of talky bits and segues right? It's what she's always done, can't complain about it now! :p

Wondering if I can tinker with it to cut out the best bits. Bit of Frankenstein job maybe? (geddit?!)

The only singing parts are really the two singles that were released; the rest is just filler mostly, although i am more impressed with the story of the two princesses than I thought. I thought it'd be cheesy but it's actually kind of interesting and throwing the coin to find out that february comes out first haha.

Have the full PVs not appeared yet? I've been super busy but i'll get them uploaded when I can.

This time round it is more like two seperate Tommy songs, separated by various narrations and stories etc. In this way it doesn't compare with the previous Halloween fayre.

The Tf6 song is ok, and the Th6 song is very good, but still not in the same class as her best songs Unlimited Sky and I'M GONNA SCREAM+ etc etc.

The videos are a big let down. Don't get me wrong, I love watching Tommy singing, for obvious reasons,. but as fans, we have come to expect a little more. Although maybe those expectations have become less and less over the past few years. I listened to the CD before watching the DVD, and was really excited when I sat down to watch the video, expecting alsorts of weirdness to go with the Fair ground sections, and maybe a little animation, or acting perfromance to go with the Shadowlight Princess story, but alas, she didn't even bother with those parts, thus enfacising the two separate songs premise.

A few easter eggs, bonuses, making of docs would've been nice. At first I thought I had found one when I selected "Trick" or "Treat" on the menus, but no, it just changes the menu.

Overall dissapointing.

I agree with the videos. I'm very disappointed she didn't make one for the whole song, it could have been amazing. I think part of the problem is budgetary. She's not a major star and she doesn't seem to do a lot of touring, so she probably doesn't have the money to do elaborate videos anymore.

That said, I thought the videos were pretty and atmospheric. The heavenly6 song and video especially seemed like something out of "I Kill My Heart."

She is sponsored by Adidas, so surely she has a bit of money in here back pocket!! Plus, she WAS a massive star in her day, and must've retained some money from those days. Also, she has the backing of Warner Music Japan.

Lollipop Candy BAD Girl was obviously done on a super low budget, but look at that! It's like a legendary video, for us, and for fans of Japanese music.

I downloaded the EP and upon listening to it, it's generally... whatever. I'm not blown away by the new songs like, at all. I really loved the album in February and I was hoping this would keep up with such greatness but sadly my hopes were too high. 5/10.

Basically it is two short new songs, and 2 long old ones too. I got hit with a customs charge too. I wish i'd just waited for the album now, especially since the video was so dissapointing.

She's performing at Makuhari Messe tomorrow too. I wonder what kind of performance it will be?....

This is the first time in my 5 years as a Tommy fan that I didn't pre-order her CD, and I'm not too worried about it. I will eventually get a copy for my collection, but probably not both versions.

Can somebody post the lyrics of Carnival, Toss the summoner's coin and Story of shadow light princess twins for those non-english fans who can't understand it well by listening?
