I'm still keeping her stuff under this tag even though she's changed it now because this is what I've always used for her. I don't see the point in having two separate tags for her pre-Avex stuff to. She's the same artist. Snow Ring is good, nothing great but its just good to have something from her after so long.
It's not an album. It's a "mini," with only 3 songs, 2 of which are remixes, and the only new on ("Snow Ring") is a ballad theme song for an RPG video game.
( 『マキナ×ドールズ』のテーマソング「Snow Ring」も用意されており、鈴木亜美さんが歌うとのこと。このテーマソングを収録した鈴木亜美さんのNEWミニアルバムは2月6日に発売される。さらにゲームとの連動企画についても進行中とのこと。)
i don't understand why people want two separate tags for Amis artist name, one for Sony and one for Avex? Seriously.. it's the same person. All just because of the damn blacklisting of her 鈴木あみ name. This is just a law related formality we all shouldn't care about. Separating into two tags is a step into the wrong direction, imho!
Re: "I wish people would realize this is the tag for her pre-avex work" - this raises two questions in my mind. First, is there any place available that collects this kind of shifting artist tags so that one can easily check which tag is appropriate for which tracks (or whether a certain artist has more than one tag at all)? As it is, Musicbrainz does not mention this tag at all, placing everything under 鈴木亜美, and on Wikipedia you won't notice it unless you're actually looking for it. Second, while I agree that one should avoid using older tags for newer tracks, would you consider it acceptable to - when in doubt, or as a general practice - tag the older tracks with the newer tag, in effect using the current tag as the default?
