河合その子 - COLORS
as requested, here is another album by the lovely 河合その子. this album is perhaps not as perfect as Dancin' In The Light (which still remains one of my all time favorite pop albums), but it's certainly worth checking out. it features the splendid "雨のメモランダム", which is quite possibly my favorite song that she ever did (it was also the first song that i ever heard by her). it also features the incredible "カーテンの少年", which is easily one of her best vocal performance. the fluidity with which she moves from one note to the next on this track is absolutely stunning. she seems to float on waves of a tropical ocean (the bossa nova-esque guitars and percussion on this track are also really nice).
the production here is not quite as great as Dancin' In The Light's production (there are a few too many corny back-up vocals here), but it's still a top tier idol pop album, without a doubt.
