Lightbulb How do you rate Kuu's JAPONESQUE? (write your reviews)

I'm kind of in the middle of dilemma here whether to buy Kuu's JAPONESQUE or any other releases of my favorite singers and I need to save some money so I can get me an iPod Nano.

So, let me see your reviews first guys so I can make sure myself whether it's really worth it to buy or not.

Thanks.

EDIT:
P.S: oh, and please it review it OBJECTIVELY. Thanks again.

well,i think it's her BEST album she ever released

from all the tracks only 3 song that i hardly like: you're not alone,everyday,all for you(still enjoyable to listen though)

my advice is that you should buy it (especially because there's PV for every song that looks very promising)
but it's all up to you to decide

4-5 for me.
Voted for 4 though.
Has the potential to get my favourite Kuu album with some time going by, that's why maybe it would even get a 5 later.
An upbeat album with just two ballads (Brave and Ai wo tomenaide), I wished so long for it!

I would give a 3.5
There are really good songs,but other songs (Brave,everyday,ai wo tomenaide) ruins the album.They should had edit All for you.
But this is the best album in Kuu's career!!!!!!!!

I rate it 1.5/5, I wasn't able to get through the whole album in one piece but Slow is a nice song.

5. Intro/Interlude are amazing, loved the concept. The tracks are all strong imo, even though not all of them are my style, but this is not enough for me to say that the album sucks. If I'm loving it now, in a week I'll be ****ing addicted to it A masterpiece already, at least for me

I REALLY LIKE IT!!! I never really thought Kuu-chan was a consistent album artist but this is waaayyyy better than UNIVERSE & DEJAVU so I'm REALLY happy!

P.S.: Does she say "Take you, RAPE you...." in Lay Down??

I'm giving it a 4, though in my mind it's more like 4 stars and a half. I'm not a fan of Kuu, but this is a good effort on her part.

I could give her a 5 just based on packaging and artwork alone....but surpassingly, most of the songs were amazing too.

Hmmmm, I maybe the unpopular opinion here, but I am not in love with it. I love certain tracks on it...but it's not really doing it for me. I think with time, some songs will grow on me, but for now...it's just okay for me. It is a strong album though, it's just that the songs are not 'my' thing.
