I don't mind selecting as many classifications as possible, on the condition that we can ultimately present the classification ratio, but I do think there are some cases where a single classification works more (a J-pop, a live event CD or a best of/a compilation album).

Another concern about "Vocal" is when to select it, in the first place. Should more classical chorus works (OWA) be included? Do we have to select "Vocal" if Haruka Shimotuki is credited, even when her voice only briefly appears in the harmony of a few bars? Without real vocalists, I think Miku Hatsune counts as Vocal, but other software such as QLSC also can sing the words. ...I think we may need to narrow down the definition of "Vocal" so that this classification won't be inflatedly used.
