Don't get me wrong, here. I love this artist, and pride myself of having all her albums, but this one is just awful. It's not even pleasant background music, because it's rather annoying. At least "Punishing Kiss" had some semblance of being understandable. this one, which she claims is the album that's closest to her heart, is too pretentious, no one but her can possibly decipher whatever the message in this is. Don't waste your money on this ..., especially the expensive Japanese release. You definitely won't need high fidelity or high definition on this particular recording. What a waste of excellent talent gone utterly confused.
