Is this really the same artist who made SAWAYAMA?

I miss the old Rina, straight from the Go Rina
Chop up the soul Rina, set on her goals Rina
I hate the new Rina, the bad music Rina
The always average Rina, spaz in the news Rina
I miss the sweet Rina, chop up the beats Rina
I gotta say, at that time I'd like to meet Rina
See, I invented Rina, it wasn't any Rina's
And now I look and look around and there's so many Rina's
I used to love Rina, I used to love Rina
I even had the pink polo, I ... read more

The first warning should’ve been “Produced by BloodPop®.”

Disappointing,to say the least.

This sounds exactly the same as a lot of other not-so-good pop albums that came out this year. Her appeal to me came from how unique her style is,but this just feels bland.

I expected so much more from her,but this just comes across as a simple bad pop song to me. As much as i love her music,i can't be biased into liking it.

I found you laying down with Bloodpop and his full head of house
I found my Japanese queen Sawayama, bad dreams, Sawayama
Remove her, send Clarence Clarity to the tomb
Our war is over, our queen has met her doom
No more, she lives, no more vinyls in my room
No more, he has killed Sawayama, Sawayama

Yeah Rina this is not as good as I had hoped. Chromatica leftover type beat. It’s not a bad track but definitely not up to the standard she has set for herself

While I do understand how this could be considered as bland or boring or generic, I was too busy vibing to notice.

Seriously though, you people are mean. Rina Sawayama's appeal comes from how unique her style is compared to other pop artists, and I get that making a more mainstream song could be disappointing, but...

this sounds sublime.

'Lucid' is the lead single to her upcoming deluxe of 'SAWAYAMA' and is the first song from Rina Sawayama that I've ever listened to and I thought it was super good, although not amazing. Rina Sawayama's vocals were really good with her sounding so smooth along the production. The Bloodpop production is being blamed for not satisfying the listeners and I actually thought that it sounded beautiful, just a little bland. The lyrics were really bad with her just repeating 'lucid dreams' a lot which ... read more

It’s a no from me! I expected this song to at least sound better then SOME songs off of “Sawayama” but no every song dominated Lucid. Why? well the sound of this song is quite generic and boring. This felt rushed and the lyrics were basic, like come on Lucid Dreaming? So boring and nothing unique coming from this track. It also sounded like “Rain On Me” which also was not a good track. The vocals were fine though but not enough to call this song “good”.

Damn it, I'm dissapointed.

The new track from Rina is just eh. I do like her vocals that she brings to the table, and I feel like she has much stronger hooks and verses, but she is definitely the highlight here. What really dissapointed me was the production, as all I was thinking was "this sounds like Rain On Me." Normally, Rina's beats have a ton of texture, unpredictability, and overall fun, but this just felt repetitive and quite unoriginal. All I hope is that she will do better ... read more

Eh, this clubby dance pop track from Rina's not doing much for me, it's pretty basic and non distinct, really anyone could've made this song, the vocals aren't bad, but I just hate this direction Rina is going in, after her new LP that was actually pretty unique by pop standards, this is just so forgettable and lazy.

At one point it was difficult for me to differentiate Rina and Lady Gaga so that tells you something. Chorus was really underwhelming and honestly I felt like I've heard this exact song already but with more care put into the production and the hooks.
