If you're looking for something in the same vein as ULTRA BLUE, but moodier and less disjointed, check out Nichika's self-titled album.


Two other albums I'll always recommend are the brilliant green's Los Angeles and THE WINTER ALBUM.

No Jpop 101 complete without some Johnny's.
Johnny's ultimate album TOK10 by TOKIO. You might be interested to check out the originals after listening to their rock-ish covers. I would also recommend a taste of Arashi in 5x10.

sup, recently discovered J-Pop music and looking for some cookie cutter albums for a new fan to the genre

Discovered Utada Hikaru and im listening to her Ultra Blue album and I love the music, voice is amazing.  I don't understand the lyrics sadly as I only understand English but music speaks across language barriers anyway so I feel as if I know what the songs mean.


Has anyone got any album or artist recommendations?  smiley: grin

What male solo singers should I check out?

I'm writing a novel where one of the main character's brother is supposed to be a j-pop soloist. I wanted to listen to some male soloists to get a feel for what his music would be like, but while I love a lot of female soloists, I don't listen to any male ones. The only ones I can think on the top of my head are Ken Hirai and Shota Shimizu. Does anyone have any suggestions for any other guys? I know the market probably doesn't have very many, but I'll take anything. Even duos like Chage & Aska or really indie artists would be great!

I'd picture him to be an indie singer-songwriter with a guitar. Maybe some Enka too. I don't really know.

Thanks for the list!

Fukuyama Masaharu? Not indie, but a great singer song-writer. 

Don't forget Koshi Inaba!

If you want him to be charismatic, and overall an interestanting character, check out HYDE (Not a Solo anymore, but he had his time at it)

I would recommend HYDE too, especially his debut album ROENTGEN, which he spent a painstaking 2 years on completing.

LEO IMAI definitely. He doesn't sound squeaky or nasal like most of j-pop male singers. I think he's half Japanese and half white but he looks more Japanese than Ken Hirai. Indie singer-songwriter who plays instruments (mostly keyboards) like you wanted.
