I humbly invite you to participate in what is arguably the pick of Koda Kumi's career. My most beloved tracks in the world are presented in this part of the rate and you would make me a very happy man if you would spend some of your precious time getting acquainted or reaquainted with these.​
That's it. No more stories of finding the love of my life. Just music.

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!
We're looking at 77 tracks this turn with 6 of them missing from the Spotify playlist, so feel free to ask me for them if you have a hard time finding any of them. YouTube links are provided where available. Once again I can't suggest enough the blog of the amazing @otenkiame whether you feel like checking the meaning behind the song you've just listened to.​

Excellent, just a couple of Ayu albums left to rate and I am THERE!
That's why I made May 1st the deadline. People are probably finishing up with @send photo's rate.
You're tighter than I expected.
Oh honey, you are popping your Kumi cherry with this one after all!
And good call @evilsin on using three of the best cover shots for the albums!
It's actually because I used the others for the 2 graphics I've been using to promote the rate...
I am ready.
So glad you're taking part!
 
This evening I've listened to, rated and commented on the Second Session era.
I'm still a while away from sending in my Ayu scores for the second part of her rate.
My priorities are a mess, but 12 years on Candy is still that buss destroying bop, so worth it.

I've also narrowed down my 11 to a choice of five songs, so I feel there's some sense of achievement there

...yeah not sure how high my Black Cherry average is gonna be.
I wonder how it'll do with the people who are less familiar with Kumi. My guess is it will be a pretty polarizing album.

You priorities are... to my liking.

YES.

Good for you! I have a clear 11 in my mind, but revisiting all the songs, I might change it. Who knows. But then again, I love an unconventional 11...
I discovered Kumi during the Black Cherry era, so my body is READY.
Is it though? Are we ever truly ready for Kuu?
Just gotta get commentary in for Ayu
Yes, people. Go vote in @send photo's rate and then come here!
