    THE KODA KUMI RATE
    PART I
    [​IMG]

    The year was 2005. It was a cold December and nothing could warm my little 15 year old heart that one day... Not even sweet crooning of Hamasaki Ayumi who I've discovered that past August. The routine web search for new JPop music proved fruitless until I stumbled upon a peculiar ballad titled "you". Never in my life until that moment an artist grasped my attention with a ballad. It was a beginning of my budding love for the one of the best women in music.

    Yes, people, this is finally happening. I've been dreaming of this rate ever since I took part in my first one and here we are! For 17 years this amazing woman has been gracing the Japanese stage and us with her charm, uniqueness, nerve and talent. She has brought so much joy with her upbeat bops and reduced us to tears with her ballads so many times that we just have to commemorate her impact on Japanese pop music.

    I know I can't put my thoughts to words as eloquently as someone like @beyoncésweave who did an astonishing job with Sugababes rate (I am still to fully appreciate it's magnificence), still I would try my best to conjure up something palpable for each elimination.
    RULES
    01 Please rate every single song from 0 to 10 (simple decimals are allowed).
    02 You can give one song and one song only the coveted 11.
    03 Provide commentary to the songs if you like or feel like it.
    04 Submit your results via PM to me, @evilsin!

    Here we have a list of all Kumi's songs up until her first best album (sadly exluding some really great intros and interludes), which is a hefty 75 songs. I believe this is a perfect amount of songs for the PART I so that people who are not that acquainted with her could participate as well. Thank god almost the whole discography is on Spotify. I also provided links to music videos. Feel free to PM me about any tracks you can't find, I'll try to help you in searching. You can also check this blog by amazing Otenkiame if you want to look up the translations for the songs.

  5. I may make time to actually commit to doing commentary for the Queen of Live, Empress of Kyoto, Tsarina of Ero-Kakkoii and all-round Kuueen of our hearts.

  9. I'll definitely try to do this. I like most of her singles but I've never dived into her albums.

  10. Let me return the favour for @evilsin and be part of this. Do not expect me to do commentary for every song cause I do not have the range.

    Oh and to everyone: I only know that song from the PJ favourites rate, which is lovely. So I have no idea what is considered a fan favourite.

  11. You hateful wench of a person... loving the concept though.
    We can't ignore the queen of so many thing, can we? Carly dare?
    YAS. You can already start rating, you know?
    I surely will, hun! Glad you're on board.
    She has some really awesome album tracks.
    Aren't a sweetheart? Which song was added to PJ favorites? Boom Boom Boys? It's a long way until we get to put it in a rate (PART IV apparently).
     
  12. I might do this after taking part in the Ayumi rate. We'll see though as I have never heard a Koda Kumi song before....

  13. I'll make sure to get my votes in before my amniotic fluid rots.
     
  14. too late old man

    evilsin, RUNAWAY and send photo like this.
  16. I'm actually not familiar with any of Kuu's stuff so let me ruin your rate with flop taste and low scores for fan favourites.

    At least @GhettoPrincess and @Sprockrooster won't feel so bad then.
     
    mi|kshake, evilsin and Sprockrooster like this.
  17. Please do! She surely does have quite a handful of bops.
    Do you... do you even have those? This rate is going to be plagued with that awful joke about the amniotic fluids, isn't it?
    [​IMG]
    Says the one with a broken hip...
    I'm... shooketh. Now you guys will just have to take part, there is no other way. And the deadline is my birthday, have I mentioned that? I want presents and your scores will do.

  18. I also need to tell you how I discovered what a stan I was back in the day. I couldn't find the covers for all the albums in decent quality to use in the OP, so I decided to have a look at my folder titled "Koda Kumi" and, boy, did I find everything I needed and more! Praise the Koddess.

  19. I've listened to all the YouTube linked songs and I'm actually pleasantly surprised. I'll definitely try and finish this asap with my own rate coming up because I'm enjoying the majority of what I'm listening to. Watch me rate her fan fave song a low score and be the rate villain though.
