None of YUI songs r manufactured.like commercial-manufactured is not the right word ,but some times the song's composition is well, changed and messed by SONY,its happens with all singers......
Talking about manufactured songs-Aren't we going away from topic
Sony doesn't mess with Yui's music without her permission.They discuss things...and settle a deal....Sony wouldn't be dumb enough to disrespect their Employees/Clients
That's what contracts are for...without a contract Yui wouldn't be able to work for Sony and they wouldn't be able to sell her stuff
People here seem to think that Sony is evil but really they're just a big business company and they do things that benefit them...but they don't really screw people(be it employees or consumers) over like some other companies(Like Microsoft,Capcom,EA,Apple etc)
Yui's music has never felt manufactured it's just that probably in the original contract it stated that Yui would do the type of Music she did that performed best in the Market..so Yui was most likely frustrated that she was so limited in doing the same kind of music she wanted to try different things and that's how Flower Flower happened :P
I mean from what we've heard of Flower Flower so far(those early crappy recordings and the Concerts) the Songs all sound quite a bit distinct from one another
And that was sometimes a problem with Yui's old albums...some of the songs sounded samey
