Perfume's remastered retrospective P^3 is live on Spotify https://open.spotify.com/album/2ys3daPjlHkDZqN3MuKXec
Crazy that you can take 1/3 of Yasutaka Nakata's creative output (his work for Perfume) and it's still one of the greatest discographies in pop music history. 50 tracks isn't even close to enough, so much gets left out. Cool though that some early Complete Best era stuff got remastered. You can really hear the difference in tracks like Computer City. Not sure which I prefer but cool to hear another take
How does a pop song as perfect as Love the World even exist
First electro-pop song ever to go #1 in Japan for a reason
And maybe I'm just gonna spam post perfume hot takes all day. Only time they'll ever drop a career-spanning retrospective like this so why not!
Natural Ni Koishite is one of those tracks that is completely 100% unlike any other song I've ever heard period. Tracks like that are my favorite of his where they're like an island in his career and you can hear elements of them elsewhere but that particular flavor and combination only happened once. The glitchy production and the insanely complex chord sequences occur elsewhere but the actual principles of the composition and that combination of the two are novel
