This is a pretty cool album, for the most part.  I like the first 7 tracks, but I think the remix of リサフランク420 / 現代のコンピュー was unnessecary and uninteresting.  The remix doesn't do much with the song to begin with, but relative to the rest of the album it's especially out of place.
no

Don't take that as a diss or insult or anything, the album is really cool!  It tries a lot of sounds and it creates some interesting  atmospheres/moods with those sounds.  But what's with the remix?  As i said, i feel it doesn't do enough with the original song, and it seems out of place at the end of this album.  What was your thinking behind putting this remix as the last song on this album?
no

honestly? there's a few reasons I included it.

1. I knew it would be a very split reaction. half the people who heard it would go "oh cool mac plus!" and the other half would go "oh great not this crap again" and I thought it was really funny about the duality of it all

and, 2. I always thought the song seemed very desolate and empty. so, it's at a point in the album where, for a lack of better word, the sage tree has failed and the cataclysm has come. everybody is dead and the world is empty. they've all turned into insects and dust.

idk, it was a more story driven decision than anything

I still think it's a boring remix on its own, but having heard your reasoning it does seem more appropriate at the end of this album.  Hell, if a technologically apocalyptic setting is what you wanted to create, the repetition of the remix mixed with the notoriety of the original track kinda does create a seemingly doomed atmosphere.
Kudos, and thanks for getting back to me.  Time to listen to this album for the 4th time with a new viewpoint lol.
no
