Agrree about her debut album it's pretty worse and the cover isn't that niceLoose wrote:I think May J's debut album is quite awful TBH. Don't like it that much. But A.I.'s Don't Stop A.I. is seriously the best J-pop release this year so far!! Definitely better than Tenjochjiki's Graceful 4 - although this was hard to top.
Yay (H) it's a great album. I love It's ALl About You aswell. her Queen Of Hippop album is amazing tooLoose wrote:I've got a new album!! My first album from NAMIE AMURO! It's her 2007 release PLAY and it contains her the quite famous tunes Violet Sauce, Hide & Seek and TOP SECRET (Official Japanese Theme Song Of "Prison Break" Season 2). Overall I think Namie Amuro is definitely one of the more memorable J-Pop artists as she does sound quite American! Her vocals reflect pretty much the American R&B scene. She just sings Japanese and that's why she is probably so different from standard R&B songstresses.
My favourite tracks from PLAY are Step With It, Should I Love Him? and It's All About You - all of them are non single tracks. Proves that Namie is consistant throughout an album. Cool! I'll try to get more from her.
I never listened to Style that much as Queen Of Hippop. Although I really love the song "Come" it reminds me of Love Regrets by SifowLoose wrote:I've put my hands on The Queen of Hip-Pop & STYLE now. I wonder which record is better. I've heard that C. "Tricky" Stewart (produced "Umbrella") worked on TQoHP while Dallas Austin put his hands on some STYLE tracks.
