IMO, she sounded the best between 2002 and 2006, but her vocal peak was definitely (for me at least) during her A BALLADS - Memorial address days in 2003 : crystal-clear voice and perfectly controlled vibrato. Watch the Haru yo koi cover and you'll understand.

Everything before 2002 is too high-pitched/nasal for me, and something just went wrong when she came back from her "break"/eye infection to promote Secret (it was all fine until BLUE BIRD, but then her first JEWEL TV promos were, for me, the start of a long vocal downhill until now... just my opinion)
