      Mabataki is shaping up to be one of those beige harmless albums.

      When established J-Pop acts dare to go outside their confort zone (she did it with the first half of FLY), they always make a U-turn as soon as they sense some kind of disappointment.

    • YUKI

      I know nothing about YUKI and I want to know different artists, so I wanted to ask anyone who is a big fan of her the reason to want to know and listen to her music, what songs and albuns do you recommend and a good example of what kind of lyrics she songs about. I’d really appreciate it.

        albums* sings about*
        Sorry for the typos.

        I know it may be a bit too much to ask, but it’s better to get to know an artist from the fans’ perspectives and even those who only listen to it casualy. I didn’t know MISIA and was only able to listen to some of her songs through the MVs uploaded on YouTube and didn’t give her much thought, but after reading more about her and downloading some of her albums I really love her and she’s one of my favorite artists. It really makes a difference and getting to know the perspective of people who have been listening to J-Pop (in this case) for years is really great.
        My love for J-Pop goes from AKB48 to Utada Hikaru / Namie Amuro / Ayumi Hamasaki to Yumi Matsutoya to BUMP OF CHICKEN to Enka singers.

        albums from best to worst imo:

      • attitude

        Her first album PRISMIC is flawless. Everything else is at least solid. My personal ranking of her albums:

        1. PRISMIC
        2. Commune
        3. Ureshikutte dakiau yo
        4. Megaphonic
        5. joy
        6. wave
        7. fly

        Some MUST listen songs of the top of my head: Nemuri hime, Ureshikutte dakiau yo, Rendevous, Nakisouda, Sukitte nandarou namida, Dramatic

        She has just SO MANY good songs that I’d say you can start from literally anywhere in her career and still have a good time.

        • YUKI

          I’ll reply to your comment just because it is the biggest one. I truly appreciate all the replies and your opinions! Thank you all for taking your time, I’ll most likely (really) listen to every single recommendation – specially “PRISMIC”, it seems to be her best one to date.
          Again, thank you!

      • Michele

        PRISMIC, joy, Megaphonic and fly are her most instant and accessible albums. Maybe you should start with these and then dig further into the rest.

      album was a snoozefest, was hoping something more like ‘FLY’
