Lonely Angel is Aoyama Thelma's 4th album & it was released on 6th Aug .

Aoyama's last original album release was 2011's WILL & in Lonely Angel , no singles are included .

Lonely Angel was created with the concept of "Girls Anthem" . The album includes TOKEYO which was made available for download via iTunes Store & Recochoku last month on 9th July .

Despite no singles included in Lonely Angel , 3 rather short videos were made for TOKEYO , HAPPY & SMILE AGAIN .

And speaking of TOKEYO , it's the 1st song that's found in the tracklist of Lonely Angel .

When I 1st heard TOKEYO , I thought it's a very unique style that Aoyama hasn't done before and it sounds quite Bollywood-ish . It's really addictive as each listen goes by which's the reason I guess she decided to start off the album with such a number .

Also , Aoyama surprisingly sounded quite good when she raps in TOKEYO as well .

We Fell In Love is the only collaboration found in Lonely Angel & this features Rook Monroe .

In addition , it's also the 1st of 2 songs sung completely in English . Aoyama is fluent in both English & Japanese so there's no weird English/Engrish going on in this mid tempo track .

I think both Aoyama & Rook Monroe's vocals compliment each other quite well . My only complaint about We Fell In Love is that when I 1st heard it , the song just ended abruptly as it's .

My Little Angel & PRAY are the next 2 songs in the album . These 2 songs are mid tempo but PRAY is a lot more slower with it being ballad/piano driven .

HAPPY is the 2nd song in Lonely Angel that's sung completely in English & this's a cover of Pharrell Williams's Happy taken from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack album + also from Pharrell's 2nd solo album G I R L .

The Oscar nominated song Happy was a massive hit when it was released last year & even up to now , it's still really popular . I kept on hearing this song pretty much everywhere I go so in a way or 2 , I wasn't really surprised when Aoyama chose to cover + include it in Lonely Angel .

GIRLS & Turn Your Light On are the next 2 songs which're the more upbeat tracks in the album . GIRLS is more edgy sounding while Turn Your Light On has a more funky groovy beat .

On the other hand , Take It Slow & Missing You are the 2 slower sounding no.s in Lonely Angel . Take It Slow is basically a stripped down piano driven that emphasised Aoyama's vocals quite well while Missing You is a mid tempo track .

Sharing the same title as the album , Lonely Angel is another mid tempo song just like Missing You but I actually like it as Lonely Angel (the song) sounds really nice/chilled .

SMILE AGAIN is the final song in the album & it's the 2nd song that received a short music video after TOKEYO as a form of promoting Lonely Angel .

With TOKEYO as an edgy opening track , in comes SMILE AGAIN that serves as a heartwarming upbeat R&B no. in which this makes the perfect choice to conclude the album .

After a 3 years wait , Aoyama Thelma is finally back with a new album ! Lonely Angel is the young singer's 4th full-length original album & it's created under the concept of "girls' anthem" . The 11 songs on the album aims to reflect the lives & culture of contemporary girls , including their views & attitudes towards love .

It's a challenge to release an album that doesn't include any singles and that's what I had prior to listening to Lonely Angel but the album overall managed to hold itself quite well .

It's really unfortunate Aoyama's popularity has fallen greatly in recent times because up to now , I still feel that she's 1 of the most talented R&B singers around . It's not easy for female solos to sustain themselves at this point in time but at the same time , it's still heartening to know that Aoyama is still releasing music despite the music & non music hurdles .

But regardless of what happens , Aoyama still has my vote of support & Lonely Angel is an album worth checking out that has a good dosage of R&B themed music .

CD Review :: Yamashita Tomohisa - Asobi EP

1) HELLO
2) PARTY'S ON
3) Mysterious
4) Moon Disco
5) Back to the dance floor
6) Dress Code:
7) LET IT GO

Asobi is Yamashita Tomohisa's 1st mini album & it was released last week on 20th Aug .

No singles are included in Asobi . Yamapi's last music release was his 3rd album A NUDE which was released last Sept .

All 7 songs in Asobi are dance numbers . This release is Yamapi's 1st attempt in having only dance music in a mini album .

Asobi was created with the concept 'Dance Tracks Mini Album' . Different genres of dance music are gathered in Asobi & Yamapi hopes fans will thoroughly enjoy all the songs found in the mini album .

Yamapi commented , "I've been wanting to release an album with a collection of dance music of various genres , so I'm very happy . Through Asobi , I hope that people who normally don't listen to dance will become familiar with it ."

HELLO is the 1st track in Asobi . This song was written by Hata Motohiro & composed by BACHLOGIC .

A strong catchy number , HELLO is followed by the next track PARTY'S ON which's a memorable track in Asobi . I prefer PARTY'S ON slightly more than HELLO & I prefer if both tracks were to switch in the tracklist .

I feel that PARTY'S ON is a lot more stronger than HELLO simply because I love the big bang swinging Jazz & edgy beats happening in PARTY'S ON which makes things really infectious . Not that HELLO isn't great .

The next song Mysterious was mixed by DAVE WAY while Moon Disco was composed by Shibuya Keiichiro .

In addition , the lyrics for Moon Disco was written by Yamapi himself .

I think out of the songs found in Asobi , Mysterious & Moon Disco are the 2 slightly weak links in the mini album as it took me quite a while to remember how both songs sound like .

Let alone , Moon Disco could have sounded much better if there wasn't a change in the melody towards the 2nd 1/2 of the song as the sound transition was quite odd but despite this , both songs are still worth checking out .

The 5th track in Asobi , Back to the dance floor was produced by capsule's Nakata Yasutaka & this's hands down my fave track in Asobi .

I guess in a way or 2 , I'm quite biased when comes to pretty much anything capsule's Nakata Yasutaka does & it's evident when comes to Back to the dance floor .

Back to the dance floor has so much character & a very strong identity which managed to distinguish itself from the rest in Asobi , there's really no complaints about it .

Dress Code: is the 2nd last song & this track was provided by Osawa Shinichi . 1 of the more slower paced dance tracks , it's also something that is really funky to boot .

LET IT GO is the final song available in Asobi & to be honest , I was scared if this was going to be a cover from the Frozen movie soundtrack but thankfully it's not the case as it's an original song .

As for LET IT GO itself , Yamapi couldn't have picked a better track to conclude Asobi as it's a great track that has a lot of attitude & packs a lot of punch , definitely a fitting song to conclude everything in his 1st mini album .

Yamashita Tomohisa wants you to get on the dance floor with Asobi , his first dance mini album ! Featuring compositions by BACHLOGIC , DAVE WAY , capsule's Nakata Yasutaka & Osawa Shinichi , Asobi comes with 7 dance songs that will make you want to dance with Yamapi .

Asobi is Yamapi's 1st mini album that contains nothing but dance music . It's a bold move that he undertook considering that his previous releases saw him covering a mixture of different music genres but not this time round .

Frankly , I feel that Yamapi's music gamble paid off quite well . Asobi is quite a solid release overall & Yamapi managed to break the stereotype that dance music is not just dance music but rather there're many different styles that defined what dance music is all about , which I think that was what he was trying to achieve with releasing Asobi as so .

And ever since Yamapi switched to Warner Music , his music releases have become less mainstream & a bit unusual such as releasing Asobi . I think if he were to stay put with Johnny's Entertainment , this might not be materialised at all .

Asobi might only be a mini album but this is shaping up to be 1 of my fave album releases that I've come across for the year & job well done , Yamapi , I can't wait to see how will be your next music release be like but until then , I will be jamming to Asobi !

Hilcrhyme - FLOWER BLOOM

CD

CD + DVD

1) FLOWER BLOOM
2) Summer Up
3) Kodou

FLOWER BLOOM is Hilcrhyme's 16th single & it was released last week on 13th Aug .

The duo's 5th album FIVE ZERO ONE was released this year on 26th Feb & FLOWER BLOOM is the 2nd single release of 2014 in celebrating Hilcrhyme's 5th anniversary in the business .

Prior to the physical single release , the A-side was 1st released digitally on 16th July .

Promo wise , FLOWER BLOOM was picked to be used in NTV's Music Dragon Dragon ・ Eye .

Just like their recent single releases such as NEW DAY , NEW WORLD & Yell , FLOWER BLOOM has a very encouragement mood going on & it's 1 of those songs that upon listening to it , you will feel quite inspired after that .

There're 2 B-sides in the single in which the 1st 1 is something titled Summer Up .

With a title like Summer Up , it's quite evident that it's a Summer inspired song & for this case Summer Up is a pop no. that is EDM driven .

Honestly I thought that Summer Up is pretty good & it's able to stack up against FLOWER BLOOM with it being A-side potential worthy .

Kodou is the 2nd B-side found in the single & it's a ballad . A lyrics music video was specially made for this song that's uploaded on YouTube . Even though the music video is not included in the DVD tracklist of FLOWER BLOOM , it shouldn't stop you from appreciating the meaning on what Kodou is all about .

Set to perform for the 1st time at the prestigious Nippon Budokan next month on 6th Sept as part of their sold out Hilcrhyme in Nippon Budokan ~Junction~ , Hilcrhyme has definitely come a long way since debuting in the scene 5 years ago with their major label debut single Jun'ya to Manami .

To me it's quite surreal that I've been supporting them for almost 4 years & Hilcrhyme is 1 of the rare group of artistes that I support that does mainly rap driven songs . But on that note , I suppose that's what makes their music unique from the very beginning .

Hilcrhyme has definitely paid their dues & for them to performing at Nippon Budokan next month , it's 1 of those moments as a musician that signifies he/she has already made it , career wise .

That said , happy 5th anniversary Hilcrhyme & may there be even more anniversaries in time to come !

Kis-My-Ft2 - Another Future

CD

CD + DVD A

CD + DVD B

Another Future is Kis-My-Ft2's 11th single & it was released last week on 13th Aug .

The group's latest single release comes in less than a month after releasing their 3rd album Kis-My-Journey .

The A-side was picked to be used as the theme song for the 2nd season of the drama Nobunaga no Chef starring member Tamamori Yuta . The drama began airing from 10th July onwards .

I was very surprised when Kis-My-Ft2 announced the release of Another Future so soon as at that time , I barely got into Kis-My-Journey & then in comes another new single .

To be frank , I feel Another Future is 1 of the group's weakest sounding singles to date . Unlike their past singles where they're quite strong sounding , Another Future felt as though it's 1 of the songs that didn't made the cut in Kis-My-Journey .

Despite this , the song's being compensated by a really entertaining video that's worth checking out .

There're 2 B-sides in the single in which the 1st 1 is titled Perfect World .

Perfect World was picked to be used in the ads of DHC Yakuyou Acne Control Series . This's the group's 2nd B-side to receive a video after Tanagokoro which's the B-side of their 8th single Kimi to no Kiseki .

Unlike Another Future , Perfect World was hands down a home run to me on 1st listen . While it contrasts the A-side really well , it's a shame that Perfect World is only a B-side as it has so much potential to be released alongside with Another Future .

Perfect World is 1 of those songs that will instantly perk up your mood if you're having a bad day & it has a great happy go lucky feeling which I really like .

Kanjiru Mama ni Kagayaite is the 2nd B-side & it's exclusively found in the CD only edition of the single .

Just like Perfect World , Kanjiru Mama ni Kagayaite is also another peppy no. but melody wise it's a lot more synth driven .

Kis-My-Ft2's latest single Another Future was released to celebrate the group's 3rd anniversary in the music business & there's definitely no stopping them in bringing out the goods .

This single surprises me in rather unexpected ways as Another Future is 1 of the rare times that I enjoyed the B-sides a lot more than the A-side .

If I have it my way , I prefer if Kis-My-Ft2 wouldn't release Another Future so close if not so soon after their latest album as it felt as though they were releasing things too fast & I've seen it in other artistes where they put out material really quickly until their music gets compromised to a certain extent .

That said , this still will not stop me from listening to Another Future & hopefully down the road , my opinion towards the A-side will change gradually but for now , the 2 B-sides are on loop in my playlist .

L'Arc~en~Ciel - EVERLASTING

1) EVERLASTING

EVERLASTING is L'Arc~en~Ciel's 40th single & it was released on 13th Aug .

The group's last single release was 2011's CHASE . Unlike their previous singles , EVERLASTING was released as a standalone song & no B-sides and/or instrumental are included in their latest single offering .

This single was released as a special edition titled 'MUSIC & PHOTOS -National Olympic Stadium Concert Memorial Edition-' that includes a hard cover photo book .

EVERLASTING was 1st performed during their 2 days sold out L'Arc~en~Ciel LIVE 2014 at National Stadium event that was held on 21st & 22nd March .

In recent times , new releases from L'Arc~en~Ciel have become a rarity & for them to finally reach the milestone 40th single release landmark , it's no easy feat .

I don't quite like EVERLASTING on 1st listen as to me , I feel that L'Arc~en~Ciel should have done something that stands out more . Despite this being not 1 of my fave single releases from them , there's no doubt the amount of influence the quartet has shaped the numerous JRock groups & it takes a lot for them to sustain in the business for over 22 years + .

Koda Kumi - HOTEL

CD

CD + DVD

1) Introduction ~Check IN~
2) HOTEL
3) Interlude ~Secret Room~
4) MONEY IN MY BAG
5) Interlude ~Last Night Dream~
6) TURN AROUND

HOTEL is Koda Kumi's 57th single & it was released last week on 6th Aug .

Koda's 11th album Bon Voyage was released this year in Feb 26th .

Prior to the physical single release , HOTEL was 1st released digitally last month on 30th July . Just like Koda's previous Summer inspired singles , there's the inclusion of an opening introduction & interludes which go well with the whole hotel inspired theme of this single .

Promo wise , HOTEL was picked to be used to promote NTV's Sukkiri!! for this month .

HOTEL is described as a Summer tune in which it's a mid-tempo dance song that showcases a more mature side of Koda .

The A-side is a medium tempo number with a mixture of different music genres such as Reggae , Soul , R&B & Hip Hop . Through her vocals , Koda attempts to break new grounds .

Regarding HOTEL , Koda commented , "If you think about it , the 2nd song MONEY IN MY BAG is more 'the Koda Kumi' , but I thought it would be boring if I was within the expectations . In that sense , I don't think HOTEL fits under the category of so-called Koda Kumi-ish songs , but I wanted to push my limits ."

HOTEL is a very different type of Summer song that Koda delivered . It's quite unusual as her previous Summer songs tend to be very upbeat if not uptempo but not this time round .

To me it's not a bad thing as HOTEL is a music risk that Koda took , something that I felt it was worth it . If not it would have been easy to compare HOTEL with her past Summer songs . Not a lot of people would like it but I personally adore it .

There're 2 B-sides in the single in which the 1st 1 is titled MONEY IN MY BAG .

MONEY IN MY BAG is described as a Hip Hop R&B no. . A video was made for the song but it's only available in the fanclub edition of the single .

Despite the rather amusing song title , I can understand why Koda said MONEY IN MY BAG is more towards her music comfort zone & from the video preview accompanying the song , it's pretty much on what Koda does best which's Ero Kawaii .

Koda could have picked and released MONEY IN MY BAG as the single & not HOTEL but I think it would be something that she has been there + done that before which she herself has acknowledged it .

TURN AROUND is the 2nd B-side available in the single & for this , it's a ballad .

This song to me is a really nice wrap up in HOTEL & for TURN AROUND , it's a really nice chilled out sounding no. .

Koda just lets her vocals do most of the work in this earnest sounding ballad & I would have loved to see a video made for TURN AROUND as I feel it deserves to have 1 .

Summer would not be the same without the release of a Summer single coming from Koda Kumi & this's where her latest single offer HOTEL comes in .

Honestly , I like this single overall especially props to the A-side as this's something different Koda has brought to the music table . It's a pity that the Japanese audience doesn't seem to be that responsive to it which I feel is such a shame .

Also , each of the 3 songs available in the single are able to carve an distinctive identity from each other which makes HOTEL an enjoyable experience overall .

Koda's 15th anniversary in the business is looming around & I'm sure HOTEL will not be the last music release I'll be getting from her .
