Buzy songs aren't bad, but they're not exactly getting much exposure now either, although it has improved greatly with their tv appearances apparently the first for Buzy for "Pasion", a nice latin-flavoured song, Ayaka Komatsu even acted in the pv. Audiences finally get to see a talented "idol" singer behind the mike, although I wouldn't quite say Buzy is an idol group, more of a vocal group, with Nao at the head.
Although it's hard to see them skyrocketing to success, it's hard to begrudge them either. I hope Nao makes it this time. Sort of middling Well, at least the dream party album, anyway.
Disposable upbeat euro dance pop -- perfect for a leisurely day. Even though the gokirri guy tried to mutilate the song, if I really shut out his "vocals" or rather growling I could find myself appreciating Hinoi Team's effort at superceding their superior peers.
After all -- dream totally owns this song, it's brave of them to even try. D Mask - Azumi Uehara - Lazy (CD) Ok, so I put them here on the mere basis that I grew to love their song, Heart ignored it at first. The dance tune sticks in my mind and insanely drills its way into my cranium like those machines in the Matrix. Admittedly, Maria doesn't have the greatest vocals and the rest of the group are just what-- backup dancers!?
They could have called this group Maria Team! Sugar - Sugar and spice, but nothing really nice Although Ayumi is really really cute with her bambi eyes Perfume - Their songs are horrid. Tacky clothes and dated technoish dance-pop music is a perfectly crap combination. They don't even look good. Jewelry - Songs are not that bad, but hasn't actually done anything significant either to distinguish them from other flop groups from Korea 4.
Paradise Go!! It's no wonder they are the poor cousins of the Girl's Box Union with their desperately unintersting songs. Maybe they can really dance well, look good, sincere to fans, etc, but not having a single mem orable song is their fatal flaw. Although I admit I pity Koterika for having to live in a ramshackle house with a broken air-con and having to fight giant grasshoppers now where have I heard a similar sob story before?
If anything, Misaki still seems like the highlight of Parago to me -- the only girl that really catches my attention -- well that and the fact that she streaked her hair too to make the point SweetS - Same situation as PGG, but maybe not so bad, although having 2 members desert is never good they do have their rabid fanbase.
At least I could still recall one or two more memorable songs from them -- although I felt they were never really that nice -- but their recent songs are terrible I highly doubt new fans will be taken in by these tracks. I have to admit that I always think of them as the "little" group because all the members seem so small sized and short. Luckily Haruna is still around, or they might be in deeper trouble, who knows. Life is not all that sweet Boystyle - Where are you guys?!?
I miss you Good luck with your NHK dorama anyway, Eri. You can make it as an actress with your "suppin" fresh looks, I'm sure. Where am I gonna get my bongo music now? First up Let it be known that this is only the Jpop list. At one point I was buying one a week, but of course that rate is no longer so with the advent of BT woo hoo! I could theoretically order them, but they are still expensive With the number of artistes I support, only by buying 2nd hand CDs from places like Book Off and Tsutaya can I satisfy my Jpop hunger, and none of them can be found in Singapore - sob -!
Since I came back from Japan I've been sorely deprived, but I'm going to make another order soon But they need my help on the Oricon. Anyway, here are my 8 years worth of CDs many of them bought this year when I went to Japan twice Swing Girls - Swing Girls Live!! As you may have guessed, I do NOT like overseas eds.
Nothing like the original. Besides, the goodies are almost always in the Japan eds anyway. I've almost completely stopped buying overseas eds now, except perhaps for Avex artistes I'm not so particular about Ai Otsuka, I'm thinking Shimatani too Gonna be a good one I'm sure!
Well, heck, I will anyway, if only to remind myself. This is a JPOP blog!! The best music on earth. Yeah -- JPOP. Best sung by idol groups or Mask - Azumi Uehara - Lazy (CD) girls, but I'm not so particular. Whereas if the song is great but the looks mediocre Of course the best is a combination of both, although that is hard to find, but well the Jpop world always throws out a lot of promising candidates anyhow!
I might even talk abit about my secondary interests if I'm in the mood those who know will know what it is My inspiration for this blog undoubtedly comes from the great santos He has my utmost respect as the "Attack All Around" idol-chaser supreme, at least amongst the English blogosphere anyway. His legendary blog is always interesting and humourous, the English may not be perfect but it is easily understandable, and I sometimes end up laughing when I see his ingenious attempts to merge the Jpop world into the real world, like the Dem.
People's Republic Of N Kore I mean of Harenchi Punch! You gotta see his blog to understand. And he's a god at making all the idol stats and charts too. God, I want to follow him but I do need a proper job to have that kind of money!
I wonder why I stopped going to his blog for so long it was obviously a mistake. Forgive me, I shall rejoin you as your follower, O great Santos. Anyway, I guess that maybe I should talk about about my jpop history here too Here goes nothing: My primary Jpop obsession lies with dream Ami Nakashima, the cute one with the sunny yet goofy smile, is my fav of the bunch.
She is really cute with her kawaii bangs, her actions and always seems genuinely cheerful. Shizuka Nishida and Erie Abe, they are both the beauties of the second gen; although Shizuka could fix her teeth up a bit. Unfortunately she is mostly in background all the time, one of the quieter members. For Erie, she had already appeared in some CMs and collaborations, and she always give me this impression of womanly charm and confidence I like her hair too!
I truly hope she can continue to shine, i want to see more of her. For Aya Takamoto, well I never really liked her. Too much of a "tomboy" for me And for that, she gets my respect. If Aya can somehow inspire Team dream to actually win a few matches instead of having half their players injured, I might even put her in my top 3 for a few days lol. I mean, I don't expect them to seriously challenge Gatas, but well try and beat a few more of the lesser teams Miss Magazine team, maybe?
How about the new Oscarpro team? You know you can do it, girls! Now I come to the enigma of the group, Sayaka Yamamoto. I mean, she looks so innocent, girly and puppy dog-ish She hasn't released any singles, yet amazingly Avex saw it fit to give her TWO mini-albums.
Not even the "da jie da" Yuu and Kana had that privilege although Kana came closest with a single-- although it was more of a colloboration than a solo.
I wonder what's the confidence Avex has in her? I mean, Sekishun isn't a bad album but the songs are kind of boring. Yes, she sings folksy, traditional-ish songs, a far departure from the Jpop dance beats that dream does. Senkou Hanabi was a better effort, I loved the title track. I do not doubt that she probably has the best voice out of all the newcomers resulting in her sharing the main mike duties with Kana and Yuu in many of dream's livesbut I'm just wondering how well received her albums are, since I am not sure there are that many Sayaka otakus and her albums are geared towards almost a totally different group of listeners.
But she will be releasing a new single this Dec 7, wow! Looks like a Christmassy type of song to me-- can't wait to hear it. She seems to be on a semi-solo career already I have almost forgotten the "invisible" girl, Risa Ai. She joined for one Ok, she looks cute, but other than that I don't really see a major talent I remember she was "waitress" in the Mask - Azumi Uehara - Lazy (CD) world "cosplay display" Looks like she isn't having too much trouble, even though she didn't exactly make an impact in dream unlike Mai, who fans including me still miss like mad more on her later.
And let me just round off by raving about Yuu and Kana. The lynchpins of group, Kana is the undisputed leader, the goalie for Team dream, and all around motivator.
She has the most powerful vocals and endurance I have Mask - Azumi Uehara - Lazy (CD) agree with santos26 that she can probably sing 10 lives in a row if she has to-- Yokozuna! Let's call it There's nothing she can't do-- sing, dance, entertain, and from what I see she makes fans happy too during meet-the-fan sessions, happily posing for pictures and chatting of cos it is the same with Yuu.
The consummate entertainer, I would say. Yuu would be the popular girl, the girl with the looks, the star that shines brightest, visible even under the glare of the sun. In fact, nowadays everything seems to revolve around her, from pvs she is the ONLY dream girl appearing in the Kono Natsu ga Owaru Maeni to Girl's Box center of attraction, main star in the pvdoramas she appeared in quite a few recently and of course her solo gravure career, with 2 photobooks and DVDs out so far But I must say it's justifiable-- she can sing too, and I must say I'm attracted to her looks like everybody.
So far, she's the only one I know who have gone from being a Jpop singer to doing gravure, but if there's anyone suitable to do gravure, it will be her, with her megawatt smile and shapely although not exactly curvy body. It's a very healthy, sunny sort of gravure though. And I have yet to see a photograph where she does NOT look absolutely stunning And I have her autograph All I can say is I love them to death and really wish to see them do well in the chart, but the decline of the whole girl group idol industry in Japan is discouraging for their future prospects they could only chart between 10 to 20 I think for their recent stuff.
It's sad because they are so talented, and a good combination as a whole. Maybe it's kind of seditious or traitorous to say this, but I will rather have the whole Hello! Project went down in flames if that will save dream. Not that I don't love certain members Reina, Koharu, Mako Of course, I will bring the children Berryz off the island first if that happens Well, they are a guilty pleasure, because i really enjoy watching them.
W will be the first sacrificed if I could help it. Anyway, since this is MY blog, I shall start by reproducing some of my longer posts in Jpopmusic Forum, my hangout. Just for keepsake I guess, since I spent so long typing them This will suggest how it has taken over my life This page may be updated periodically Since I came back from Japan I've been sorely deprived, but I'm going to make another order soon But they need my help on the Oricon.
Anyway, here are my 8 years worth of CDs many of them bought this year when I went to Japan twice Swing Girls - Swing Girls Live!! As you may have guessed, I do NOT like overseas eds. Sex Bears Bareback Gay.
