Bad Apple, English remix. It's good, very good.

I honestly hate both versions, but lyrically, the English version sounds much too flowery. Word choice is key when writing any form of poetry (coughcoughsongwritingcough), and is usually very deliberate. This is one of the reasons why translations/lyrical re-writes to fit rhythms after translation seem to fail; translation usually does not pick up on the possible hidden meanings behind the word choice. This is no exception, and most of the lyrics come across as contrived and forced into these rhythms.

Please keep in mind, again, that I do not find Bad Apple good, nor do I find the straight translation of its lyrics to be phenomenal. I just find it more tolerable than the forced lyricism of this interpretation.

Those vocals are shit, Japanese ones fit better and actually sound better.

He found the English one better than the Japanese one because the English lyrics fit with the song more than the 'Japanese Touhou crap' (paraphrased)
I can't see how that works when the only thing touhou is the stuff that remains, the music.

Well, and the removed video is touhou too, I guess.

Because it was terribly mixed. She applied the same effects that were on the vocals in the original, but thanks to terrible mixing, it's much more obviously disgusting-sounding.

Because Cristina Vee literally sounds like a vocaloid whenever she speaks.

It's not that we're trying to change your opinion, we're just offering our own input. I still think both versions are fucking awful.

Still not so good stylistically and this is, in terms of vocal ability, the worst out of all of them.

This doesn't deserve its own topic.
Also my opinion > your opinion.
