“Mikan” Radio Rip!

May 19, 2015

Greetings fellow Mr.Children fans!  Now that I’ve finally finished up with uni. for this school year, I’m going to make sure that I provide as much coverage as I can in the lead-up to this particular album.  Now that we’re only two weeks out from REFLECTION’s release, it’s pretty likely that the audio for new songs will just pop up out of nowhere.

Like this little treat, for example, that was just announced to be airing on the radio last night.  “Mikan” (“Unfinished”) is the first song on the {Drip} version of the album and the last on the {Naked} version of the album, as well as the song the band named their Stadium Tour after, so it appears to be pretty important in the scheme of the release.  The track itself focuses mostly on the core 4-person band, though some strings do show through at a few moments.  Still, it’s a pretty refreshing song to hear from Mr.Children these days and I’m glad that they decided to write one in this vein.

Read on below to check out the full radio rip of “Mikan” for yourself!

      I just got my copy of {Naked} today, so once I’ve spent a good amount of time with it I’d definitely like to. Haven’t even been able to sit down for my first listen yet though, so will be just a little while.

        Alright, I’ll be looking forward to it then. By the way, do you know how I can get the 9 songs that are not on DRIP?

        Hi Ryusenkai, just an update, I managed to get the rest of the songs already. Sorry for so many questions, but are you also planning to update the songlist? I really appreciate the work you’re doing by the way, thank you (:

    Ryusenkai, I’ve been trying to get in touch with Nemo these last two weeks but he hasn’t been replying any of my emails. Do you know any other way to reach him or if he is fine? For some reason I don’t have his number coz we have only corresponded via emails. The book project I was doing with him is completed and I want to send him copies. Please let me know if you can help to reach him. Thanks so much ~ijahamran

    Hey Ryu, forgot to let you know that Nemo has been in touch and the book that I co-wrote with him is ready. Drop me an email ( if you would like a copy, I’d be happy to mail it to you. And I really should put my reviews for the last two albums in here but I have been so swamped by life and everything else in between. Catch up soon!
