YMMV / Akiko Shikata

  • Ear Worm:
    • The heavy, aerial drums in the verses of "HOLLOW" from Navigatoria are pretty damn hypnotizing. And similarly in "Makeda ~Queen of Sheba~," on the same album.
    • KOWARERO KOWARE KOWARE KOWARETEYUKE!!! (DIE, DIE, DIE, DIE!!!) The chorus of "EXEC_over.METHOD_SUBLIMATION/.~ee wassa sos yehar" will burn itself into your brain like a hellish drumbeat.
    • "Kaze to Rashinban", an upbeat and peppy song in Harmonia, is almost at odds with the majestic atmosphere of the album, but damn is it catchy.
    Yobu koe waaa kaze ni kodamashite hirogaruuu… energie!
    • "Leyre" from Turaida is an absolutely beautiful song that's hard to forget once you've heard it.
  • Narm: Can happen when she tries to sing in a foreign language but bites off a tad more than she can chew. Notable examples include "HOLLOW" (English) and "La Corolle" (French) in Navigatoria, or "Umineko no Naku Koro ni~Rengoku~" (Italian) in Harmonia. The latter is rather strange since she doesn't usually have this much trouble with Italian…
