Although Koda Kumi’s Gossip Candy was supposed to be predicted to have pretty good songs and has a really good cover but after hearing reviews, I really agree with people’s opinion that the songs aren’t worth listening too.
Don’t believe me, listen here:

Alright now, I wish I could talk to Kuu personally. What is she thinking with this single? I just previewed all the songs, except for “Lollipop”, and they suck.
1.”Inside Fishbowl” – High-pitched annoyingness. “Mary, mary…” …calm that down Kuu-chan
2.”Outside Fishbowl” – A low-pitched version of the “Inside”. I mean like looooow-pitched. I know Kuu has this unique deep voice, but this song unflatters it.
3. “Lollipop” – Nasty. Screams dirty Koda.
4.”For You” – The ballad of the single. Unfortunately, it’s no “Moon Crying” or “Stay With Me”
5.”Got To Be Real” – Needs to “get real”. No, Koda Kumi. It was fine for those like 20 seconds of a Pepsi cm, but, if you can’t do it better than the original, don’t do it at all.
I love Koda Kumi, but I just want to smack the people who presented these songs to her.
2010 is not turning very good so far for Koda Kumi. Can We Go Back? wasn’t such a good single and the Universe album…well, nothing beats Kingdom. Wish she would just release another song like Ecstasy or TABOO, Last Angel etc.
Normally, her autumn/winter songs are better:
2007: LAST ANGEL
2009: Physical Thing
