I got this album out of curiosity, mostly fueled by Sketch Switch being in the tracklist.

I must say, the rearrangement is very good for some of the tracks. (This album is worth a listen, just for Tori no Uta's rearrangement alone. Very well done.) But as great as his voice is, I didn't feel too at home to him singing some of the songs, probably due to preconceived ideas with regards to some of the songs. (IMO, Uninstall is the most guilty of this, I'm definitely staying with Ishikawa for the choice of the better rendition)

As for Sketch Switch, it gave me epic lulz from syncing the OP animation in my head, but it fit nevertheless, since it managed to retain the childlike feel, just with a bit of enjoyable over-the-topness. Kudos for tackling this song, which is rather hard from my point of view. I liked Hidamari Sketch a lot, and his version made me feel at home, so there.

Other high points include Sorairo Days' chorus and bridge(I didn't really like the pre-chorus verses though, maybe just needs some getting used to), and God Knows (whose heavier version managed to combine Endoh's style and the original spirit of the song all too well).

Best song: Tori no Uta
Most skippable song: Uninstall

Thanks. Now I'm scarred for life from Endoh doing a moe OP. But I don't care!

Still epic lulz.

EDIT: I just though of Endoh doing Hatena de Wasshoi! from this. Now I am scarred for eternity.
