my opinions

In general this CD feels different from the first CD.

There isn't a song that really stands out like Don't Stop. (I don't think anything will have an impact like that.. unless there is another IP concert. ^_^;)

The group song is very nice. I wish they would sing more group songs.

Toki no Kuni no Alice is very, very nice.

Mariko and Rie's duet Shinju Iro no Romance rocks, just like Angel Kiss on the first CD.

Kikuko and Aya's duet is nice too. It sounds like Kikuko has the lead vocals and Aya is doing backup vocals, because Aya is singing in a high voice similar to Kikuko's. There are parts of the song where they sing alternatively, like they were talking to each other in an anime. Very nice combination.

I can't pick out Kanai Mika, Koorogi Satomi, and Kanamaru Hinako's voices in their song. They sound very similar. But their solo songs are sung with their character voices.

Mariko's solo is a nice song. It fits Mimu well.

My rankings would be: 5, 2, 1, 3, 9, 8, 7, 6, 4, 11, 10.
