^ This isnt the theme song, its the one used for the trailer. Theme song is called in english "Dont Think Twice" and the one used for the trailer is called "Face my Fears" by Utada Hikaru - Skillex . I agree that it SUCKS which did she have to collab with that skillex dude ? >_>

but even the other song is not as good as passion and and simple and clean, i had higher expectations, wtf she had 10 years to write a good song and came up with these ?

I didn't say it's a theme song. They say it's the OP song. Whatever we call it. It's the new KH3 song and it hurts my ears. :p

Like I didn't tell you about Chikai on the previous page? lol. Or are we really misunderstanding eachother that much now?

The beginning is decent, but then it turns poop. Why, Utada? It doesn't even sound like an OP.

To be fair, KH1 and 2 opening movies don't really play like anime openings or go along with the songs lol.

It would've been better if she collaborated with AIDS Skrillex for some epic memes and impress the core audience more that way.

I personally like Chikai and Don't Think Twice. I've never played KH, but until now I've liked every song Utada has done for the games. Not really a fan of what I've heard so far of Face My Fears tbh.

Really wish Sanctuary was on iTunes, as that's the only KH song from Utada I'm missing. One day, hopefully.

I see they released hi-res remasters for a few of her older albums. Does anyone know if they are "proper" or some K2HD style upconverts? Not really in the mood right now around xmas to blindly spend that much money on old albums.

Edit: Hmm. After looking at a couple of tracks on Ultra Blue I think I'll pass. Compression seems pretty much identical to the CD releases, if not worse...

It looks like these remasters were released on Dec 9, so not that long ago, lol.

If you want both versions then yea, sure. I think the American This Is The One CD and the Japanese Utada the Best are the only ones with it.

Edit:
Oh, this is the full Japanese version of this mix, forgot it was on the original single:

Yap, that's Hikki's live abilities that I remember from WILD LIFE stream. ;p
I'll take the studio magicks version.
Also Fantome tracks. Didn't realize she was on tour now. Thought it was from some Kingdom Hearts event.

^ Still she sounds very close to the CD ver and i think that impressive (and few artists can do it as far as i know).

btw i think the last song in that live is overall a better song than chikai and i liked it in the album too.
