She's not on Line Music either.  Weird given that a lot of popular artists are and she's been fairly internet savvy recently.  (Even some MAX is on Line Music, lol.)

after listening for more than a week, i like majority of the album, except BWIW2B. interesting to see that Tiger contributed to the 2 songs with some Japanese lyrics....he must be pretty good with lyrics that suit Namie. whats wrong with Zedd's song that got it eliminated? too cheesy? (I love Heaven)
With more than 200 songs in initial pool, i think some of the eliminated songs can be made into single B-sides even though they don't fit into the album's theme

So many views for Golden Touch & over 200k copies of _genic sold! ^o^ Queen Namisus stays slaying lessors

Now if only I had the album! Dx I pre-ordered in May CDJ did so much craziness & made it take so long for my orders just I combined it w/ another pre-order so I could get the extra points mind as well have a reason to wait + get more out of it.

That's what I was saying earlier, when people we're panicking :p

She said it herself, others and younger people can try to beat/top her or w/e, but it doesn't happen. Her reign is solid like Utada & her family (grandmother, mom Keiko Fuji, & her; the slayage kept coming :p ) xD Lessors & trolls can remain mad.

Nah, the album's not available in the U.S iTunes yet. Which totally sucks, I want to buy Stranger so bad. I guess I'll go with Amazon Japan for the digital downloads then.

I believe that it was never confirmed that Zedd contributed for this album in any way, just that the news coverage mentioned his contribution to FEEL (and the possibility of more international collaboration for _genic? I could be wrong about this whole thing though but I'm sure that's what it was)

Weird that they ignore the US iTunes, maybe it's got something to do with What I Did For Love? Then again, they could've just excluded it.
Anyway, I will never understand why this or that release isn't released on iTunes worldwide.

Got my copies of live style in the mail from YAJ and the seller sealed them really nicely so I don't want to open them and ruin the re-seal job he did

Anyone know anywhere online to grab a 320 CD version of live style CD?
I have the live ballada disc in my itunes but the regular version with 29 songs is literally the only namie release I don't have in my library and it's driving me insane, especially since I spent weeks filling it in properly and now i'm just missing one album for completion ・`Д´・

I hope you're not initiating wars here smiley: laugh

Namie is well aware about her contemporaries, in fact, she do mind them and taking it as a form of challenge.

I'm not sure about Utada, but I think her comeback this year/next year will not be as big compare to her comeback in 2011, yes she may snatched up the number 1 spot, but not a sure impact in the sales overall, though I'm pretty sure her concert will be a sold-out one.

O.O! No no no! XD I ♡ them both hence why I said: "Her reign is solid LIKE Utada & her family (grandmother, mom Keiko Fuji, & her; the slayage kept coming :p ) xD".  I just mean they both keep selling greatly despite time & yeah I was paraphrasing a quote from Namie when she was asked about younger competition, mostly joking, but basically she mentions that she welcomes the challenge & love challenging herself ^^ + Namie likes Utada 

I wouldn't even know who to call a "lessor" (I don't like calling people better/worse just different & compare only pros & cons of the individual). I <3 Utada, Namie, BoA, Kumi, Mika, Anna, etc (I need to try Ayumi next ^^!). I would be on all sides of a fanwar! XD

But David Guetta specifically asked Namie (supposedly) to sing the song, so I don't know why that would be such a big deal. I do wonder why it hasn't been released worldwide yet...did FEEL make an iTunes appearance?

Yes, FEEL is on the U.S iTunes, but it took them a while. Ballada didn't take long to be put up there, but a few weeks back they took it down... And its back up under her name written in Japanese now. I also wonder why _genic's not there. Same goes for Bon Voyage, Walk Of My Life was up for pre-order... The former is yet to be seen. And BoA's Who's Back? Ain't there yet as well, Kiss My Lips didn't take more than a week. I guess AVEX has some issues with copyrights or whatever.

I hope Utada does well on the charts. And with KHIII on the horizon. This generation of solo acts has been dull as of lately. Miss the days when a huge hit like Endless Love.

My CD came last week and I've listened nearly 10 times.

The album is pretty decent. There's nothing new to it however, pretty _gen(er)ic. Anyone could've done it, and it's far less consistent and cohesive than her previous studio albums (FEEL, PLAY, etc.). That said, her English sounds like it's improved, though I'm not a fan of the vocal production on the album, it's not clear at all - I wonder if they did that intentionally to hide her accent.
