v it's not about digital compression - no matter if you listened to her albums in lossless or a lossy encode - they will always sound very bad whenever and however you listen to them. And things like these fly exactly because people somehow don't notice them - although they are very audible and a huge problem for us who want to actually enjoy music and not distortion which is actually very tiring on ears and takes away so much from the listening experience. By the way, most people can't hear the difference between 320 kbps and 192 (if not less), especially on a well mixed and mastered track.
↓ it always makes me happy when someone new discovers her! when I first discovered Metis I thought she sounded like Shakira, and then I discovered lecca and thought she did too lol. even though they both sound quite different.
I just discovered her and I'm listening to tough Village now. She's really good and her voice is probably the most different voice I've ever heard in the j-pop realm, it even reminds me a bit of Shakira.
