Okay, this may seem like a spam post (SO SORRY!xdxd) but I promise this will be the last part of the cover album post special I had going on. This time, it’s all about the graphics and computer image skills left in the hands of celeb’s album cover makers. The Larc en Ciel one should be in this category, but I put it in the previous post because it kinda fit in the mood of the other artistic/ melancholic ones.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, I’ll be focusing in work but for the mean time I hope you like the posts so far! I’ll be making some more posts in the next few weeks once I’ve settled in my (new) job.
Hyori is the only one who made the best and worst list, probably because she’s the type of girl you can either hate or love. Her album graphics achieved that old school comic Superman with dialogue bubbles like wham! bam! poof! The gray-scale “It’s Hyorish” (man, she’s trying to make that expression work these days) looks like those Levi’s ads or labels you’ll see on the back of your jeans. Not a fan of the rubber shoes draped on the boobs though.
How cute is this? I mean, using public signs for graphics is definitely nothing new but somehow it says a lot and it kinda makes you smile once you see it.
JUJU’s album MY LIFE. Very chic. It looks like it came right off the page of a clothes designer’s sketch pad.
KANADE’s Serenade. It’s the little things that normally you wouldn’t give much mind that make the most impact.
RnB newbie MIHO FUKUHARA. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I was absolutely blown away by this girl! She’s got strong vocals, great songs with meaningful lyrics and she’s got that sweet, simple style. It’s really hard to come by singers who’s all about the music and not the glitz and flash. Her album has that Lauryn Hill vibe going on but it’s really eye AND ear catching.
GLAY. They’re my 3rd fave band (1st is Mr. Children then Bump of Chicken). Black and white contrast with hot pink – so rock and roll, lol.
ARAGAKI YUI. So cuuuute! It really reflects her carefree, youthful and innocent image/personality that makes everyone go “awwww.” It’s no wonder why this girl is really famous these days because she doesn’t seem too overwhelming, and she seems very approachable and cheery. BUT her voice is a little scratchy and she sounds like she lacks passion/ conviction in singing. Her album cover, however, makes you think of ponies, rainbows and playgrounds = HAPPY.
SEAMO’s single entitled MOTHER. It’s really very touching. And very witty too.
So, what’s your favorite of them all?
MIHO FUKUHARA’S CHANGE. Man, you have GOT to listen to this girl! She’s got the big voice, quite a change from all the tiny, squeaky and cutesy singers purring out there, lol. I can’t stress this enough. I LOVE HER.
