Yeah, seriously. I was just pointing out that since she's on Oricon and whatnot that I considered her mainstream. There wasn't anything personal in it.

Media coverage regarding celebrity-dating is kinda weird/different in Japan. In the US it's kind of a gossip-game/source of fun from what I've observed. In Japan, it's always been that if an artist...

Sorry, I can't accept the "well if it's so bad, why is it so popular?" argument. You could say the same about numerous bands, songs, foods, pieces of art, and find just as amusing a counterargument...

I pretty much echo all of these. Especially Marty Friedman!

Althouuuugh, I really do like Kameda. I understand a lot of people don't like the poppiness and redundancy of his songs, but I think...

I don't think there's a need for it, and if she even came close to do it now it would be a bad career move. As mentioned earlier, she's already achieved success and popularity in Japan doing what...

I agree a lot of lot it is mainstream stuff, but I wouldn't dismiss all the songs on that list because of it. If you combine that list with the other stuff he's produced, there are some real gems,...

I really enjoyed that clip! Despite the shuddering horror with which I look upon Variety, I'm looking forward to these performances just to see how they differ in atmosphere and sound. Colors are...

It's definitely poppy, but I don't see how it's any more pop than, y'know, the whole album of pop they just made. It lacks a certain amount of flare and doesn't really take many risks, but I think...

Um, the thread opened with, if taken seriously, an elitist invite to give "valid musical criticism" of the song, and saying people who don't like it should suffer some kind of internet-based...

Yeah, I can, and I do. I don't see any major contradiction in supporting an artist and being disappointed with some of their work. If a song really bothers me, I can't just force myself to like it...

Shiina singing like a male cat with its testicles in a bear-trap.

Or a female cat with a bear-trap in its vagina.

Take your pick, either way it's not a song that plays to her vocals. It's a...

I have to say no.

I'll concede that her English is much better than the majority of Japanese artists, but I just don't see it warranting the praise some people give it. I find her English sometimes...

MM is my favorite. In my opinion, it just has the most personality and a raw feeling that doesn't get lost in anything. I'm a sucker for the whole small-time girl in a big city deal, and from start...

I really don't have too much a problem with Ken. I think he has some good songs (as well as bad ones). But in these videos, both he and Shiina sound like they're learning how to sing. I didn't enjoy...

Ramp--I can't really see the justification in opening the album with this. It's not a terrible song, but there's nothing that really impresses me about it. Cute in some parts, but largely...

I'd read that as "sock", and have done so before, in multiple instances--"sock stalking, sock puppet, etc." Kutsushita is indeed the Japanese word for sock, but as most people know, the Japanese...
