Almost fell out of my chair when Tomomi and Haru starting singing together again, and has it been a looong time, since 2014 i think lol

It's a nice little dream pop song, i like how, i don't know how to say, janky? it sound. It has a weird beat and chord progression but I really like it. And the Haru/Mami dual guitar solos at the end is really nice Happy Tho if wasn't for those loud clapping noises, I would like the song a lot more

80's style song, vintage outfits for the mv, this has  Bye Bye written all over it

Wow! Tomomi is back on the vocals, I've been missing her voice so bad! Can't even remember when was last time she sang on latest releases...

I liked the song, it's like a mix of short short + switch + I want you + brand new wave, but it's nice, Tomomi's voice adds more vocal variety, I've been reading some comments confusing Tomomi's voice with Rina

Very experimental and I do not like it much. But at least we have Tomomi on the lead.

whoops, Whistle didn't mean it like that, i saw someone comment on a Tricot song, and described the interchangeable instrumentation as "janky", I don't even think they know what that means lol. but that's where i got from

Well to change my description, i find the song beat...interesting lol

I think I like Masterpiece more than Mabataki, at least for now. 
It's a great song though, and I'm really glad to hear Tomo back on the vocals.

Great to have Timo back on vocals for a change. Although both Tomomi and Haruna seem to sing in almost the same register these days. The contrast used to be more... interesting?

Nice song. Wouldn't make a rabid fan though, I must admit. Masterpiece is better.

Most of the lyrics were pretty easy to understand up to the first verse and chorus of "Mabataki" so I was able to write out those lyrics myself = here's my translation of that:

Spoiler:
I get shaken up, I fall in love, and sometimes I dream
A repetition of days of not being able to concentrate on anything

I'll always want to see you, even if we're separated one day
That's all I've been able to think of

Just one more blink and my tears will fall
Yeah, just one more kiss and I'll want to burst
But I love you


Also, TOMO said this about "Mabataki" on the radio program that first aired the song:

"It's an ennui, girls' pop song with a kind of 80s-like sound featuring dual vocals by me and HARUNA for the first time in a while."

Took me awhile to 'get' Masterpiece. Got Mabataki right away, definitely the more interesting side for me.

I wonder what she meant by ennui type song, since it literally means boredom. Its a boredom girls pop song?

She's most likely referring how the pace of the song is on the slower side.

Also, while it literally means boredom, it has sometimes a nuance of being due to a tedious work. That is, one has too much or too many work so she stops doing work to rest or relax (or be lazy), and maybe listen to Mabataki while doing so New Single - 『Masterpiece / Mabataki』 - Page 5 1f609 (see what I did there?), and then she feels bored because she is not doing anything but will not go back to her work because it's tedious so she keeps doing nothing (and maybe listen to Mabataki again) thus she keeps being bored, in other words, being in ennui.

*So maybe, Mabataki is the song for that case*

But yeah, it's most likely about the pacing.  Sweating

@topic
If not only for its weird parts, Mabataki does sound great. Also, I mistook Tomo as Rina then Haru. Then, I gasped when I realized who it was.

Honestly, I like this one more than Masterpiece (didn't really like the chorus on that one). But I've been listening to more j-pop in the last few months so that might be the cause.


Also, Tomomi is singing again. A bit too childish-like but still nice to hear her.

Finally, the Voice of the Kitten.... I mean, Tomomi's singing voice is back on Mabataki!  New Single - 『Masterpiece / Mabataki』 - Page 5 1f63a 

I REALLY LOVE MABATAKI!! This song reminds me of new wave music (ABC, The Care, and Duran Duran) during my childhood days with some elements of funk riffs a-la Nile Rodgers. There is so much nostalgia in it.
