Soooooo I’ve kind of been listening to Hikaru Utada’s new album, Heart Station. I don’t like it anywhere near as much as ULTRA BLUE, but there are still a few repeat-worthy songs on this one. Among them:


    心の電波 届いてますか?
    罪びとたちのHeart Station
    I miss you

    This song reminds me a lot of some of the songs on ULTRA BLUE, but a tad more melancholy. I also like the punning (or possible punning, I haven’t really looked at the lyrics) on heart/hertz/station. That’s mostly just a language geek thing, though. 😀

  • “Prisoner of Love”

    I’m gonna tell you the truth

    This wouldn’t sound too out of place on Exodus. Actually, who am I kidding? This song is better than most of the songs on that disk, but I’m kind of at a loss to explain why I like it so much.

  • “虹色バス” (Niji-iro Bus)

    愛する人へ 想いを寄せて
    Everybody feels the same
    Everybody feels the same
    虹色バスで 虹の向こうへ
    みんなを乗せて 青空PASSで

    Although it’s upbeat, the melancholy that permeates this whole album (except for “Boku wa Kuma”) seeps into this one too. I almost dismissed it as “too cute” on first listen, but there’s such a good beat! As the last track (next to the bonus track), it actually lifts my mood a bit. 🙂
