I've noticed that not too many people are fond of glitter by 浜崎あゆみ
. But was anybody really expecting anything that good? Not as far as I can tell. I'd think 'fated' was abit more of a let down, even though it's somewhat growing on me. I did want to compare her two previous summer singles with glitter, but I'd rather wait until the covers are released. Whenever that happens..
Then there's 倖田來未
with FREAKY. It's ok. I haven't listened to it that many times. But it's a bit more urban than what I was expecting, which is a good thing. I'd seen enough of Kumi trying out pop. Run For Your Life is okay, it gets annoying at some parts, but I don't find it as irksome as the other two tracks. As it's been said before 'girls' sounds like a copy of 'With your smile' which never appealed much to me. And I just find 'Sora' just plain boring. Maybe the remixes can save this single, since it seems the songs failed to impress.Though alot of people never expected this to be anywhere as good as 4 hot wave
. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
But one release that people seem to like is Namie Amuro
's new album 'PLAY'. I haven't taken the chance to listen to the tracks that have been recently released.
Outside of the JPop bubble, ガゼット
is releasing their new album on July 4th. With this seemingly darker look, I'm a bit more intrigued than I was before. And since there have been comparisons with Dir en grey for the longest, I actually took compared the two, and even though there was some similarities, I still don't see how they are that much alike.
And since my summer trip has been cancelled, there's a good chance I could purchase one or more of these...preferably the albums.
