Ahh definitely not negative on that one since I almost like her B-sides . But then it's kind of to the point that she knows most of her fans would like that one so it was like uhh predictable?? I already expecting something dark song from the continuation and hopefully maybe something aggressive lines (signal and to some extent 2nd verse of hyakka ryouran and marchen) so change would be nice to the arrangement but yeah I wholly agree with you on the vocal and instruments disconnection since I'm also not comfortable with the processing of Hana no Uta so I Beg You is more pleasant to listen from the sample :)Weeeell, I don't know if I'd use "b-side tier Kajiura" as a general negative, lulz. My main complaint on Hana no uta was the arrangement so at least based on this clip that seems to be pulled back a bit. It's no longer FBM and SLOW SOARING STRINGS and GITAAA and MORE and EVERYTHING TOGETHER. The strings seem part of the song this time, rather than just Aimer giving her best over boring strings with FBM added for extra punch (or the other way around) resulting in a mess. Then again I'm only listening on my laptop speakers so the quality is potato. I'm cautiously optimistic.
PS. Maybe it should've been called something like 'I scream for help' instead of 'I beg you'. I was expecting a Zzzz ballad, lol.
