I think a lot of people like Nagareboshi, but I actually thought it was pretty boring. Same for Always. Ichiban Kirei na Watashi is actually her only recent ballad I really like. Dear is nice too, but only because it's basically Ichiban Kirei + her other good ballads mashed into one.

Anyone received their copy yet? Mine came from CDJapan and it apparently didn't come with any first press jacket sleeve or cover art, though CDJapan states it to have a sleeve jacket. I also preordered it way long ago when they still had First Press. Sure hope they didn't shortchange me just like that

EDIT: Ok I am the world's biggest dumbass. The first press has the butterflies on the cover printed on the jewel case itself! And the cover only has two butterflies on it. I can take a picture if nobody does by tomorrow but not now cuz I'm studying for an exam tomorrow

Teehee probably Nakashima's fanbase has enough variety in music taste to sustain her versatility. I happen to not like Ichiban Kirei Na lol.....

She needs to work with MONDO GROSSO again to come up with something like LOVE ADDICT. I love that song to bits

I would like her to work w/ Osawa again, but I wouldn't want something exactly like Love Addict.  I'd want something different.  Maybe she could team up w/ Cornelius as the salyu x salyu album was fantastic.  Or she could go the gaelic route like Chihiro Onitsuka did w/ Ken to Kaede.

wow have you been totally stalking my music history lately? lol those two albums (the salyu and the onitsuka ones) are my most played albums for the past few weeks lol....i think Mika would sound more interesting going to a more onitsuka style rather than the salyu style lol


now that you mention it, ken to kaede TOTALLY sounds like a Nakashima Mika album. Yume Kamoshirenai is totally her song

Really? As much as I love this song, I can't picture Mika singing it. Maybe "kohaku no yuki", sounds more like something Mika could pull off nicely.

Oh by the way the tour is starting tomorrow in Japan, I should be able to bring you a report and setlist after the concert ended (I'm not going to this show but a friend of mine is going :3)

Oh probably just me then....some of the tracks like Aoi Tori and that Scottish song....I can totally hear Mika's voice doing it as well lol

Haha I could totally see Mika nailing some of those songs like Kohaku no Yuki, Aoi Tori, & Boku wo Wasurenaide.  It would be interesting to hear something like SUNNY ROSE or IRIS from Mika sung in Japanese.
