That I am

I even had friends who went to AFA that didn't watch MF. They went for the concert because of the Yoko Kanno "link" but instantly became May'n fans after her performance.

It's also a question of how much she'll be willing to describe herself as the star that sung Macross compositions. Not all performers like to have their image defined by one of their works. Then again, that's what most people expect from her.

Basement boys has a thing for Nakajima's cutesy girl-next-door voice. Her singing is just average.

I think her voice is a bit different than other standard j-pop girl but still too typical.

May'n is one of the few J-pop voices that really can sing. Couple of Live versions that I've heard, she really can blow.

I can see her future is really bright, she could be an established pop artists doing all the current stuff like sing R&B-esque Jpop.

Her vocal range is fantastic for a Japanese artist.

I think that was the problem with Mari Iijima's career. Her image as the voice of Minmay was too much, and it limited her future.

Nakajima started out as a songstress and as a voice actress, so perhaps her future in anime is bright so far. However, May'n is a singer and I'm not sure if her popularity among the otaku would be beneficial in her music career.

Well, her popularity is mainly considered to be the result of her work in Macross Frontier. I think she did the right thing. Macross Frontier will not be popular forever. The movie will fix the problem for some time but after a year or so she'll be considered a remnant. I really wish she won't stray so much from her style in Frontier though.

You can now preview every track (~10-15 seconds each) of May'n Street on the JVC website:

http://www.jvcmusic.co.jp/-/Discogra...TCL-60090.html

May'n Space sounds a little more poppy than I expected. It's Yoko Kanno song of this album.

My impression is that they all sound great - of course they're just like 10 second previews so it's kinda hard to tell for now. Except that I thought Lion sounds the same as before XD

Sorry for disappearing for such a long time. Fiesta is a little too addictive for me.

I still prefer Lion in its duet. Or maybe because I am a lolicon Ranka fan.

If you're a fan of Mamegu (Nakajima Megumi), she's doing a Christmas Live event at Shibuya and it's live-broadcasted onto Nico Nico:

http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv19443


I think she struggled mightily on What about my star @ Formo

She did a bunch of other stuff like Be Myself, etc. It's still going on now.

I believe the clip will be reposted on Nico later...

Yeah, the first one ( Space ) is a bit too bubbly for my taste, but the rest are great.

I agree. May'n Space is unfortunately my least liked song (for now) though it's not too bad. The others sound pretty good, ranging from strong, catchy tunes to lovely ballads They're clearly much much better than May'n's old, Britney-ish stuffs I'm not surprised to listen to Lion sounding almost the same because IMO May'n's voice always dominates in that song from the start. However i do prefer the duet Lion ^^

I'm really happy to see May'n's & Megumi's careers sky-rocketing from Macross F with such good starts Megumi's Tenshi ni Naritai is also pretty decent, it's cute and I'm looking forward to her single along with May'n Street

I think she got too tired and reverted back to her own voice from the beginning and was off key in many occasions.

Seikan Hikou towards the end was much better because she had this block of break before it.

Just bought Macross F OST 2 Album for 34,95 EUR (~ 49USD). Bit expensive but worth every cent.

Scan of cover may follow in new year.

Does anyone have a link to the Megumi live at that Christmas event because I haven't seen it yet lol. I've seen the videos of May'N singing live and they were AMAZING, her Diamond Crevasse was STUPENDOUS. My jaw dropped at the way she improvised but I've yet to see Megumi's live version of What 'bout my star? even though she struggled I did like her version better than May'N's. May'N does have a better singing voice for the more emotional tracks but Megumi has that poppy sound of voice, still I want to see some Megumi since I haven't seen much of them.

Well I am kind of disappointed with Infinity #7. The vocals don't mix very well and Ranka's voice has got too little force.

And dammit! I was hoping for a longer version of Watashi No Kare Wa Pilot.
