♫ NOTES:
NERDHEAD is a new group made up of Giorgio Cancemi (Producer/MC/Lyricist/Composer/Arranger/Mixer), So-Hey! (Violinist), and Yamada Hirokazu (Pianist/Keyboard). Giorgio was previously part of the Urban-pop duo So'Fly with singer TOKO, but the two decided to pursue solo acts. I'm not sure on the backgrounds of So-Hey! or Yamada Hirokazu, however.

I'm not too fond of the opening of WHERE'S THE LOVE?, but getting past the first 25 seconds, I really enjoy this song. It reminds me a lot lyrically of the Black Eyed Peas song with the same name (well, Where is the Love?) - though this song is a lot chiller and feels smoother. BRAVEHEART was the first single, and it was the song that drawn me to NERDHEAD. It's best described as an orchestra ballad meets rap. Sounds like a strange mix, but the end result is beautiful. NEVER CHANGE is like listening to So'Fly all over again. TOKO is back! I won't lie, this song makes me cry. It is a break-up song, but even more it's about telling someone you care about to never lose the amazing qualities that you first fell in love with. もう一度 ~GET UR DREAM~ is a bit more upbeat and like So'Fly again. Feeling so fun, and again with TOKO!

♫ NOTES:
Overall, this album is quite possibly Bryan's best. He put so much of himself into this album, and it stands as almost a biography of his life. Some of his deepest feelings are expressed here, and I'm sure many people will be able to relate somehow to at least one, if not many, of these tracks.

♫ NOTES:
It's mihimaru GT, of course I have nothing but good things to say!... Okay, truth be told, at first I wasn't a huge fan of SWITCH. I liked it, but it took a while to really grow on me. Now I can't believe I was ever unhappy about it. I guess it was just because I wanted a strong hip-hop based song, rather than a pop song with hip-hop influences; which is what we got here. I was also a little disappointed with Over Drive being the b-side track. Not because the song is bad or anything, but it was already on the Judy & Mary tribute album, and I wanted something NEW. But I love the song none-the-less and it does match the mood of SWITCH very well.

A lot of people, myself included, were a little disappointed with the PV when it first surfaced online. It's pretty much just Hiroko and Miyake dancing and singing against a gray screen, while showcasing various popular sports (the song, after all, is about sportsmanship). But after watching the PV over and over again I can't help but to love it anyway! Despite the simplicity, Hiroko is just SO CUTE and Miyake looks SO COOL. I haven't seen a decent quality clip of the PV (only YouTube rips) so that's mostly why I'm uploading it. Usually I don't bother with uploading the DVDs

♫ NOTES:
mihimaru GT is, if you didn't know, my FAVORITE music duo ever. And I think their BEST OF album is the perfect introduction to their music. There's a blanced blend of pop, hip-pop, and ballads. Also on the album is a 2007 remake of their second single Kaerouka (2004). I would go through all the songs like I did with the NEXT LEVEL review, but I'd have too much to say about each track. :3 I marked my all-time favorites with hearts. If you like fun, upbeat pop/hip-pop or heartfelt urban ballads give mihimaru GT a try! ♥

♫ NOTES:
VAMPS is a rock band put together by Hyde (L'Arc~en~Ciel) and K.A.Z (Oblivion Dust). I have been a Hyde & Laruku fan for a few years now, and VAMPS is quite similar in sound, though perhaps a little heavier rock? Hyde sings the lead, as well as playing the guitar and K.A.Z also plays the guitar. I only just started listening to VAMPS' music... yesterday. So I don't think I can quite say anything other than "I CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO IT!" I marked my favorites (so far) with hearts. If you like rock, check 'em out already! :D

☆ MU DOWNLOAD

♫ NOTES:
HYDE released a best of album, and while it includes plenty of our favorites, there are also some new tracks/renditions. First of all Evergreen [Dist]? LOVE IT! I already loved the original Evergreen, but this new version is a little bit faster/upbeat. It's also in English, and Hyde sounds really good (there's an obvious accent, but Engrish is at a minimum). Secondly, HE RECORDED GLAMOROUS SKY! Hyde originally wrote the song for the NANA movie, and Mika Nakashima recorded it. I prefer Hyde's version, of course. This track is also in Engrish English. Oh, and bonus information - K.A.Z (Oblivion Dust, VAMPS) has worked with Hyde on various songs through his solo career, including writing and co-producing Season's Call!

♫ NOTES:
This is Ayumi Hamasaki's 10th album, which brought her 10th anniversary year to an end. I marked my favorite tracks with hearts, but honestly, I love each track so much. Even the interludes (there are four of them) are amazing! The album definitely has a very dance/techno theme.
