I'm not exactly liking the song either and I am too lazy and not exactly wanting to listen to the song more than 1 time to actually give a more objective opinion about the actual song lmaoWe are drifting so far apart ritchan. :(
Focusing on hating vocalists but not hating on this particular generic YK sounding song with me.
It's just that I'm 100% on board with Kajiura collaborating with other vocalists but idk Lisa and aimer aren't what I expect her to collaborate with. well, maybe aimer is kinda expected but you all know how I loath aimer's voice. It's 1 thing if she collaborates with other vocalists and she composes different things than what she's been doing these past 10 years with Kalafina, but tbh this is not the case because everything sounds very standard Kajiuraish. I beg you is kinda fresh I guess but from what I remember of the song (for real I haven't listened to that song ever since that 1 time I listened to it on its release), it's in the same vein as marchen. Please correct me if I'm wrong as I don't think i wanted to listen to that song again. Might as well have her usual girls sing the songs if they're all going to be the standard Kajiura song. At the very least I would be able to listen to the singer's voice lol
And yes Lisa does sound better when she's not screeching like in the first 20secs or so but the rest of the song is very screechy and waily, like your usual Lisa's releases.
I wonder if she chose the vocalists herself or the anime studio actually asked her to work with more well known Anison singers like aimer and lisa. But for real like what @Lorde-Kowz mentioned in his wishlist, there are many options of well known anison singers like Elisa, Sakamoto Maaya, and Kokia who actually I think would suit Kajiura's songs more than Lisa. Even that 1 female singer who did either Magus Bride or Violet Evergarden or maybe both actually has a lovely voice that I think would suit Kajiura's composition.
