I need some new jpop and kpop recommendations! I lost my harddrive to a failed power source (6+ year old computer!) and my new one has a 1TB harddrive and so I'm starting fresh.

COME AT ME BRO. I need to fill my iPod!

To start, anything by Yoko Kanno (writer/producer) and Maaya Sakamoto (performer). Even my mother likes it.

Second the above. Remember what we imagined/hoped that Ayaya was gonna be like when she started doing mature stuff? That's basically a description of Maaya Sakamoto on an average day.

It's important to note that except for "Triangler" and a couple other songs from the Macross Frontier soundtrack, Maaya Sakamoto and Yoko Kanno haven't worked together in several years. Sakamoto's voice is still nice on her recent albums, but the music lacks that certain something. So stick to the first four albums — Grapefruit (1997), Dive (1998), Lucy (2001), Shonen Alice (2003) — if you want the good stuff.

EDIT: I see that Kanno did a couple tracks on each of Sakamoto's last two albums, but eh, it's not really the same. Yunagi Loop (2005) was such a disappointment that I gave up.

Anyhow, other favorites besides "Triangler"…

"Kiseki no Umi" (from Record of Lodoss War TV series)

"Gravity" (from Wolf's Rain)

"Yakusoku wa Iranai" (from Escaflowne)

"Pocket wo Kara ni Shite" (from Escaflowne)

And yes, all of their stuff together was this good. Basically, just go here and here (their two "best" albums on YouTube, although "best" is relative in this case).

I don't hate the group.
I love some of the members.
But I really don't give a fuck anymore. If anything it's just boring with the same thing over and over again. @.@; I'm getting sick of seeing them everywhere wherever I go, too.

It is. If it was RIVER of Beginner or Ponytail, I'd understand their sales. But with a boring song like this? I really don't get it. Quality's been going down starting this year, for them. Or hell, ever since Beginner. Chance no Junban wasn't that great. And even so these past few singles are the ones that sell even more. -__-;

Boring? Beginner was boring lol But Flying Get is supper happy and summer ish. Quite inspired on Shimatani's Angelus tbh but who care, it's fun :D

And Tsunku's must be pissed off this single has an electric guitar interlude just like everything he does XD

Ah well, I like Beginner, that type of song a lot more than Flying Get or Kachuusha. Doesn't mean i don't like happy songs; Ponytail was amazing, and 10nen sakura was, too.
But since Chance no Junban it's just gone downhill.
