My sentiments are largely the same as Misono66. It was their powerful girl rock sound that really got me into them, and I actually did like queens are trumps quite a bit. But deviations into awkward poppy genres with songs like Kimi to Mirai to Kanzen Douki are kinda troubling for me. Kagen no Tsuki had a good intro and instrumental but as the song went on, it felt kinda "meh" compared to their earlier singles. I'm also quite doubtful of the quality of song they're gonna produce with elements of dubstep and rap, because I listen to them not for these genres as much as I support the girls. Nevertheless, I'm hopeful of at least a few good tracks from the 5th album - the preview of "weather report" I heard sounded really promising.

Cherry Jam the Mami/Tomo duet was quite cute actually in a funny sort of way but yeah.

I really miss their baby Action Image, they just don't do girl rock like they used to (..)

that said they still look cool of course and the album should be interesting, I just hope it's more Baby action less Queens are Trumps!
