Salyu has a new cd coming out on the 15th! I am crazy excited for this one, I already have the 青空 (aozora) single and it did not disappoint.

Got the CD a few days after it came out, listened a few times, thought I'd write a mini-review here.

I was actually very disappointed overall in photogenic... As I said in my previous post, the 2 songs from the single were great, and there were a few more decent tracks, but overall it was an extremely average album. I feel like since Salyu's last album s(o)un(d)beams was so experimental (which I personally really liked), the producers or whoever is in charge wanted this album to be extremely poppy and generic... and that it is. Salyu's voice is of course flawless throughout the album, but the songs themselves are mostly mediocre, and even her voice can't save them. Salyu has still yet to top her finest CD's, Kokyuu and Terminal, though Maiden Voyage and s(o)un(d)beams were also extremely good albums. Photogenic is in my opinion her weakest album yet. I hope her next CD will bring her closer to her roots.

Songs you should hear from photogenic -

1.青空(aozora) - Blue Sky

I don't bother with her anymore.

I only listen to Lily and maybe three Salyu songs.

If nothing else, I think that http://ilovelilychouchou.com/forum/index.php/topic,86.msg276.html#msg276 these songs blow away anything else she's done. With most of her songs she's just a musician. Not with these.
