Anytime someone asks me about getting into J-Pop, I instantly recommend Ayumi Hamasaki, one of my all time favoriet artists. Her track from 2000, Seasons holds a lot of sentimental value to me, and always moves me. Its beautiful power ballad build up, nostalgic lyrics, and amazing vocals are on a level not seen anymore.
Sure, the video kind of sucks by today's standards, but man. Ayu looks absolutely stunning in the video. What's your favorite Hamasaki tune?
