Yeaah you took too long to say something and I got it anyway. :-p
I wouldn't say old songs but old songs re-imagined. Not bad, especially since they are some of her best. Wasn't a big fan of the Seppun remix but other than that enjoyed everything else.
No matter what her voice changes or not. Her voice, Her songs and Her music. New or old stuff are still evoke my emotion and bring me to tears every time I listen. That's the special of her ability (1)

@kumimoto And that's silly for me, keep on saying not to listen to her if someone "criticizes" about her voice. I'm not keeping the count but we were just 3 writing it (I won't check all the shoutbox right now to see if someone else was much more zealous about it), so I don't understand why you get so angry! As I said, IMO REAL wasn't THAT experimental, but maybe it has just encountered my personal taste, especially if you consider it was my first Mika full length album. GAME, CANDY GIRL are just perfect and all the album is really balanced. So, this is (again) MY opinion, that was YOURS.
@Seaohn How is that a silly comment? You're doing exactly what I said..You keep listening to her because you got over the fact that her voice is different. It's not silly at all actually, it's what I've seen people doing lately. If they can't take her "new" voice anymore, they'll just refrain from listening to her music. Period. It's not that difficult, it's just a question of good sense. As for REAL, it simply has the same balance as STAR to me, same diversity and type of songs overall. They're both experimental in their own ways (And excuse me, STAR was not experimental you said?? then you must have listened to a different album... nonesense! Ichiban Kirei na watashi wo? GAME? CANDY GIRL? Memory????).
Hence me putting them at the same level. But that's just my opinion. I don't really care if you don't share it.
@kumonoito REAL isn't a STAR bis IMO. STAR wasn't that experimental as you say and for me is her best album with LOVE. That said, I still find her voice strange lately and that's a fact or opinion if you want, but that doesn't mean I must stop listen to her, That was a silly comment. @czubaczka Why talk about BENI here? They are totally different artists. Red album may not be that easy "love at first listen" but has it's own concept, even if I must say it could be stronger. But I love it, you don't (still "tasteless joke" made me lol), why bother here? However now I'm curious about Fighter feat. Miliyah.
I was so happy when I read that Mika was releasing a cover album until I saw the tracklist. We're only getting 2 new songs! The rest of the songs she's already done in the past. What a bummer. She looks amazing on the covers though!
