Yay, a Yui Horie thread!
I quite like her second album, I haven't heard her other albums yet, but that album is quite okay (not too much filler)
I'm not that fond of her latest single "Presenter", but Immoralist was frickin' awesome.

I own HONEY JET!! and really like JET!! and love countdown from the album. I think immoralist is a kick-ass song but I actually like Presenter a lot better. I also really liked true truely love (or how ever it goes) but not so much the b-side to presenter, endless star.

Horie Yui will play ‘Yukirin’, the 6th generation idol who will succeed the name of Kashiwagi Yuki. She commented, “I always watch AKB48 on tv, and I’ve been to their concerts. So I’m very excited about this anime adaptation! At the same time, I feel the pressure, but I want to play the role with all my might!”

I'm suddenly getting into Yui, I listened to her album Himitsu and liked it a bit.

Anyone have any recommendations for songs (and albums)? I try to look for reviews for her online but can't find much.

Also, it looks like she has a best album coming out soon! Perfect time for me to become a fan, hahaha!

One of ner most popular singles (and best selling one) is "Hikari". If you like Perfume, than "Vanilla Salt" is a good song. It kinda gives a techno vibe from it, at least the music video does.
I also enjoyed her single "Days / Say Cheese" and "JET", from her album "HONEY JET", was a nice summer song to listen to. I am selling her album on my amazon "HONEY JET" and you can probably hear some samples on itunes Japan.
