Has anybody ordered it yet? If you did, do you have it?

What are some of your thoughts? Discuss.

My opinion: When I first listened to "Prisoner of Love," I felt disappointed. I was expecting something different like "Deep River." However, after giving it a few more listens, it easily became one of my favorite tracks on the album. As for the "Quiet Version," I particularly enjoy listening to it due to its simplicity. After listening to the preview, I thought it would turn out bad, but I guess I was mistaken. The original karaokes are pretty nice as well. Oh yes, what about the PV? Very simple and straightforward, but it was easily entertaining with Hikaru in it. The 8-page booklet is also a nice addition.

If you are a fan, I suggest you try to buy it. If you're a new listener, give it a few listens and see whether or not the single is worth it.

I'm definitely going to get it but I'm in no hurry. I'm an Utada collector, I have to have every CD she's done, but I'd be more eager if it had a better alternative version though.

I haven't heard the quiet version. Only the small clip of it. I've always like this song . Smile Smile


My Favorite lines are:
"My ordinary life has suddenly begun to shine
Since the day you stole my heart
I thought I could deal with loneliness and pain
Iím just a prisoner of love"

I managed to take some pics of the single. They're pretty huge pics.

Spoiler:
 

Oh, and the last pic was the music video playing on my TV.

Sorry, I don't have a scanner. Apoligies.

However, you can see how nice it looks, yes?

I love especially the vocal layers she presented. Didn't expect it to be so smoothly blended with the whole song. bounce The quiet version is slowly becoming my-boom XD (マイブーム, the Japanese English word equivalent to 'current obsession')

I believe i like take 5 the most out of all of the song

i really like the vocal layering on that song (like superkuman said)

but i saw the breakdown sales

and take 5 was one of the lowest selling songs No

Hey sano, did she really re-sing the song for the quiet version?

OMG, I want that single! bounce

I think for some parts she did, and then she just mixed them up so that it goes with the instrumental. It'll take me a few more listens before I can give a proper judgement.

I just don't understand why would she only re-sing some parts of the song and not the whole song instead. Great single anyways.

Thanks for the photos. The booklet looks very nice, and the design is similar to the HEART STATION one.

Oh, and I think Hikki didn't re-sing the song No

I aligned the songs and removed the background music, but the vocals sounded the same... All except for the part where she sings "Misute nai..." in the bridge. Still, I don't know why she would only change that part and not the entire song... Anyone got different ideas?

Alas, PoL isn't my fave. I'd much rather hear a passion-ish, niji-iro-ish, beautiful world-ish type song made quiet instead of an already mellow ballad. The quietness just makes it more... not-Hikki. I always liked her style because she mixed her voices with many different instruments (I HATE acoustic, just a guitar and a singer.. MECK!!). If she were to do something else quiet to give it another feel (like she did with Distance into Final Distance), I would've preferred that.

Thank god I'm not the only one! Even though I don't like the song that much I ordered the single the other day, I can't have a gap in my collection.

I'm definitely going to buy it! CD+DVD version, of course :-) Prisoner Of Love fast became one of my favorite tracks on HS.

I haven't watched the PV yet, so I'll get back to you on that :-)
