    Greetings! It's been a long time coming, and with Koda Kumi & Ayumi Hamasaki's discography rates currently underway, it's only fair that Japan's Queen of Hip-Pop gets the send off she deserves with a three part discography rate! This is my very first rate, so please excuse any technical difficulties. @send photo will be on hand ready to help, so if I mysteriously disappear, beg him to take over.

    For Part One of the rate we will be exploring the beginnings of Namie's 30 year career. We will be rating FIVE full albums and a bunch of extras spanning from 1995 to 2002. We will be rating the single versions from each album as Namie insists on using remixes for the album versions. Interludes have also been omitted for the sake of our sanity.


    THE RULES
    • Scores between 0 to 10 are accepted. 0.5 scores are also accepted, if there is enough demand of smaller decimals I could consider it.​
    • You can choose ONE song to receive your 11 in the rate.​
    • Please PM your scores to me with any commentary you have. Any commentary is appreciated!​
    THE SONGS
    Since it's damn near impossible to find Namie's music anywhere, we've had to resort to dropbox. If this is against the rules the links will be removed, but until we find an alternative, this is all we got. Thanks to @send photo for doing that for us! (Send your lawsuits to him @avex). Music videos are added if available.

    You will have 5 weeks to vote as I know there are still a lot of people unfamiliar with a lot of Namie's discography pre-STYLE and I'd like to give you all enough time to digest this. There's a lot of gems here.

  7. It's the opposite for me, I'm less familiar with her earlier albums, so it's an amazing opportunity to relisten to these with due attention.
     
  8. Wait...
    I can't read.

  17. Looks like you'll have to start preparing those matches...

    Speaking of... when should I hold Part II for Kumi, hm?
     
  18. So ecstatic this is happening! Thanks for putting this together. Will try to include commentary on every track.

    Will songs from Dance Tracks Vol.1 not be included? Only because GO! GO! ~Yume no Hayasa de~ is one of my favs, but it's totally fine if not.

  19. I’m a bad stan. I tried to find differences between them before I made the final list and didn’t realise there were different songs on them. I’ll add any songs on Dance Tracks that aren’t on Original Tracks in a second!
