Yuriko Kaida's solo career

So I thought it would be fun to re-visit KAiiDA and see if I thought better of it after all those years... but nope. Those two EPs are still boring.

Since all of the tracks were covers of 80s songs (and all but one from singer Momoko Kikuchi), here's the originals for each album instead (with original credits; KAiiDA versions arranged by 星ヒロタカ/Hoshi Hirotaka):

Damn seems like she was on Nozaki's show today and they have no online archives. :|
Hopefully someone uploads to nico or something.

Edit: Oh they will be airing it this Thursday. Hopefully I don't forget.

It's an enjoyable CD, didn't sell out as far as I know, but I haven't seen any details on where one can still get it after the YK Live vol.#14 shows.

Will remove soon so please don't quote.
Add /# after mega. Password is kaiida with all the proper capitalization. Saved from a shitty stream.
Edit: Reuploaded with remuxed complete version.

They played Swan-prologue- and Yuriko performed Musubi live in an acoustic version. Shinji Kakijima on guitar. (Thx @Kugayama )

From what I gathered Yuriko's hoping to release a full album in spring. I don't know if the tracks from PORTA will be included. Someone who understands Japanese can probably say more.

As for PORTA, IMHO:
Swan-prologue- sounds like a Haruka Shimotsuki reject from 15 years ago and the instrumental (mix) is as flat as I wish my belly was.
Musubi is fun and I wouldn't mind an acoustic studio recording for the album.
Hitotsunagi is poprockballad101 with a generic arrangement and (sadly once again) a flat mix.

I don't hate the songs, I just think they sound like karaoke. I think they all could've been saved by an artiste (lol) of a mixing engineer soooo... Hopefully the upcoming album is not mixed by Seiji Iwasaki like PORTA. 1 out of 3 tracks sounding decent-ish is not good enough.

Thx. Edited my post. Also this pic is bigger than on Yuriko's feed. Nice.

Edit: I reuploaded the audio. This time complete and in .mka because I've no idea why the earlier .aac showed the wrong length (at least in my player).

What I do is "copy image address in a web browser, then when re-posting the picture add ":large" without the quotes to the end of the URL for the image.
Oh I know that. It was a different, smaller picture on Yuriko's feed.

@george1234 you sure? No caps lock? Pretty sure I checked it. I'll check again when I get home.
Edit: Works for me. :/ Even checked if I spelled it right myself. What did you put in?
