Lawsuit Winning Strip is Shiina Ringo’s sophomore album and it’s a really weird and jarring listen. I’m going to be honest, I didn’t like this album at all. The songs were interesting, I’ll give it that but Shiina’s voice is just too much and not in a good way. I had a hard time getting through this album in I don’t remember it being this cringey the first time around. The only bearable songs were Orthopedic Cast, Instinct and Dependence. The rest were just a bit under bearable. I don’t know where Shiina was trying to go with this album, I know that her voice is of an acquired taste, but my ears were tortured trying to get through this album for this review. I had to listen to a few songs more than once, most notably Identity just to make sure I actually was partial to them. So far this is my least favorite album from her. A huge step down from her debut.
