Staff Pick ! Mika Nakashima - My Sugar Cat

Mika Nakashima - My Sugar Cat

Allow me to sidetrack for a moment: I LOVE THIS SINGLE'S COVER! Isn't it pretty? ♥

Ok back to the music, Mika Nakashima returns to her pre-NANA style of music with this single. I wasn't very impressed with it at the first listen, but it really grew on me after a while. Both songs are very soothing and relaxing stuff, with a playful edge and a nice beat. Kind of like the songs you'll chill out on the beach with, watching the sunset with drink in hand... you know what I mean? ^_^

Hmm since I feel ive been losing touch with the j-rock bands of the past, and also i want the j-rock newcomers to get a feeling of how past j-rock was, I bring you the album Blue Blood by X-Japan. X-Japan is such a dynamic band in the variety of music they play and how well they play it. They can do rock ballads just as well as they can do hard rock. Just in all the most legendary japanese band ever. hide. . . . . . *cries*

So yeah enjoy ^__^

Staff Pick: Koda Kumi - 4 Hot Wave

[mood| productive]
[music| Koda Kumi - 「Ningyohime」]

Even though IMO the cover isn't as awesome as it usually is...namely the text looks so...yeah it just doesn't look really awesome, almost amateur-ish...but that doesn't diminish any from the songs. I think the songs are pretty good. My favorites are Ningyohime and Juicy. I think they're pretty good. With your smile and I'll be there are the usual suspects and don't surprise me as much, but still are worth listening. Ohh yeah this CD doesn't 'officially' come out til tomorrow. but it got leaked. I've had the songs for a while except for the various intros, outrs, interludes...

The PVs are a different story.

I can't wait to get my CD+DVD version and get her first Photobook.

As Always:
01. Comment if you're d/l-ing. I have a presentation to make tomorrow..and soemhow i'd rather do this than finish my presentation for work.

02. Support the Artists. They work hard to make us lose money..but it's all worth it. You can buy this at Yesasia or CD Japan...or Amazon.

03. Don't tell me "I HATE the songs" that's not my problem.

04. Enjoy

05. If YSI decides to be a total Dick which it is right now...this might go onto a different service. WTF YSI?!?

Uploading this early because I'm leaving for a week on Sunday night. Savefile was being bad so I used YSI before realizing Sendspace lets me upload multiple files at once. Huzzah.
