Dear Lady

Artist: Hidemi Uematsu
Release Date: November 18, 2009
Label: Toy’s Factory
Personal Rating: 4/5

1. Dear Lady
2. BABY
————————————————
What’s with the J-pop sites and Hidemi Uematsu! There are no reference sites that can tell me what label her music is being lisenced under! (Please tell me if you know, though) I simply found out about her through last.fm

Dear Lady is like the “spin off” of Dear Ladies and Dear my Friends. (Kind of like Pokemon Platinum being the spinoffs of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl) Anyways, Dear Lady doesn’t really sound very captivating to listen to but Hidemi’s vocals pretty much make up for it. (Since they’re so damn good to listen to)

I like how BABY tries to sound energetic with all of the fast singing throughout the song. But then like usual, there are awesome vocals and piano instrumentals.

Jidai

Artist: Hidemi Uematsu
Release Date: March 3, 2009
Label: Toy’s Factory
Personal Rating: 4/5

1. Jidai
2. Dear Ladies
————————————————
Even though she is still starting out, I’m already beginning to think that she would really hit the top ten oricon charts soon! (Plus, I’m really digging her cover photos!)

Songs beginning with the piano reminds me of Ayaka’s Power of Music no matter the melody. (I guess that’s just me.) Like always, the chorus seems to be the component that makes Jidai so memorable.

What’s with all of the songs beeginning with “Dear,” lately? Anyways, Dear Ladies takes on a different face of Hidemi since the song is not as R&B oriented as her older songs. (more like laic back rock.) I like how she displays a lot of feeling with her music regardless of genre. (Which is probably the one reason why I love listening to Hidemi so much)

Dear my Friends/Trauma

Artist: Hidemi Uematsu
Release Date: October 10, 2008
Label: Toy’s Factory
Personal Rating: 4.5/5

1. Dear my Friends
2. Trauma
—————————————————————–
It’s no dobut that Hidemi’s debut song, Dear my Friends was a really good listen but only listeners would notice if they over look the introduction. And why the introduction in particular? It’s simply because it’s not the type that catches your attention at frist. But at least when it gets to the chorus, things begin to shake up into this powerful combination of awesome vocals and actual back up singers that can sing. I thought this was a pretty strong debut.

Trauma takes on a different mood which I thought suited Hidemi’s vocals just fine. (It’s mainly the instrumentals that makes Trauma better than the first track.) I thought that Trauma was pretty legit too! Out of all of her releases, it turns out that her debut was the most powerful.

Personal Rating: 4.5/5
