Updates, finally!

Sorry for letting this go completely dead for the past couple months, I know that I said I would try to update it sooner, but I wasn't able to get around to it.


Artist: 高橋瞳 (Takahashi Hitomi)
Title: コミュニケション (communication)
Language: Japanese

Comment: I don't really know much about Takahashi because I just recently got into her while watching an episode of Music Station and seeing a comercial for this song, I knew I had to hear the rest. I think that the J-music world lacks decent J-rock female singers, but Takahashi's "Communication" is worth giving a try. This song is fast and catchy, did I mention addicting?


Artist: RAG FAIR
Title: 君のために僕が盾になろう (kimi no tameni boku ga date ni narou)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: RAG FAIR is another group I knew nothing about. I watched a clip of the ORICON top 20, and this was one of the songs featured on the countdown so I decided to check it out. To make this simple, if you like groups such as Gospellers, Chemistry, Skoop on Somebody, etc. You'll like RAG FAIR.


Artist: ASIAN2
Title: 遠く(tooku)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: Another random download. I have never heard of these guys before, but I am glad that I finally did. ASIAN2 reminds me a lot of ケツメイシ (Ketsumeishi) and ORANGE RANGE (both who I love). "Tooku" is a sort of upbeat ballad, but a very nice accompanied by great voices.


Artist: ASIAN2
Title: Lie
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: This is the B-side to ASIAN2's "遠く" single. I actually like this song a lot more than "遠く", but thats my own personal opinion. This song basically proves that ASIAN2 is capable of different music styles. Where as "遠く" sounds like a typical R&B song, "Lie" has more of a rock beat to it.


Artist: BIG BANG
Title: We Belong Together
Language: Korean

Comment: BIG BANG is popular Korean hip-hop and R&B lable YG ENTERTAINMENT's new male group. BIG BANG features members featured in previous YG collaborations such as G-Dragon and YB Tae Kwon. Despite their lame band name (IMO), BIG BANG is definetly worth giving a try, they remind me of an older version of 1TYM combined with SE7EN's Korean style.


Artist: AI
Title: I Wanna Know
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: This was AI's latest single before the release of her new album "What's goin' on". I personally like AI because her style and voice differs from a lot of Japanese female artists. This song is definetly upbeat/hip-hop like.


Artist: BONNIE PINK
Title: A Perfect Sky
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: This is one of those songs that you absolutly hate before you hear it about 50x and then it grows on you... Or at least that is how it was for me while I was in Japan... Typical j-girl pop music.


Artist: Dong Bang Shin Ki
Title: O
Language: Korean
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: Popular Korean boyband Dong Bang Shin Ki finally released their latest album, which honestly isn't much of a head turner (or perhaps i'm losing intrest?) They changed their look, but their style is basically the same. If you liked "Rising Sun" or "Tri-Angle" then you'll like this song as well.


Artist: Kaoru Amane
Title: タイヨウノうた (taiyou no uta)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: It seems that Japanese female singers must be getting better these days... Oh, and another artist that I know absolutly nothing about, but she has a pretty voice. I guess if you like YUI, then you'd like Amane too.


Artist: Kat-Tun
Title: Real Face
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: So this is my latest addiction. Actually 赤西仁 is... Anyway, this is probably one of the songs that really drove Kat-Tun to fame. It's fast beat, and extremely catchy.


Artist: TRAX
Title: RESOLUTION
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: So TRAX keeps getting softer, and more poppy... Still addicting (damn it!) Though it doesn't really seem like Jay's Japanese is improving much. TRAX's latest Japanese single, check it out.


Artist: 絢香 (Ayaka)
Title: 三日月 (mikazuki)
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: A friend of mine recently got me into Ayaka, and now I am addicted. Ayaka has a beautiful voice, and this song is a beautiful ballad, highly recommended.


Artist: 氷室京介 (Himuro Kyosuke)
Title: SWEET REVOLUTION
Language: Japanese
Download: Right Click Save As
Comment: This is Himuro's latest single release. He never disappoints me, this song is fast, addicting... Just simple amazing. I love how most of his songs still have this old-school rock feel to them.
