I haven't listened to the new single yet. Kuu has been kinda a hit or miss for me until Kingdom. Though, she has improved vocally at least. And her Kingdom album is definitely an improvement over her Black Cherry one. At least in the Kingdom album, the album tracks aren't skip-worthy. And majority of the tracks in Black Cherry was released anyways. The whole album was a mess. -.-

But, Kuu has been releasing good material so far. BUT is so...dance-able. xD And the Under was definitely hot. I been growing to like Kuu ever since she released Kingdom, she's a bit more listen-worthy now.

Well, I like Koda's too. I know Utada 'cos i first meet Koda, and I wanted to hear "more Japanese Artists", so i found Utada.

Well, how can I say, this single is good. Moon Crying is a cool song, long time don't hear good ballads from Kuu. Taiyou would like it, hehehe

I liked Kingdom, maybe is because I like Black Cherry too, hehehe. The dance musics remembered me the top-of-the-tops Juicy, and some slow music's too, like Anytime.

The DVD bonus is cool to watch, so I feel strange with the fact that in DVD are ALL videos. So they feel "same".... Sad

But anyway, Kuu is Kuu

I loved both Black Cherry and Kingdom!

Black Cherry
-> hot dance tracks such as "JUICY" "Get Up & Move!!" "
-> sweet ballads such as "Yume no Uta" and "I'll be there"
-> cute explosive tracks such as "Puppy" and "With your smile"
-> the destorying rock tracks "Ningyo Hime"

Kingdom
-> wonderful ballads such as "MORE" and "Himitsu" and "Ai no Uta" and "anytime"
-> dance tracks such as "BUT" "Black Cherry" and "Under"
-> the hot Arabian track "Amai Wana"

And of course there's more. These are two albums that I can listen to without skipping any songs and they are easily in my Top 10 Albums of all time! [along with secret and BEST ~second session~]

Been a fan of Ku since Best First Things & Second Session, I've got all her singles & albums & her tours to date <3 I'm crazy I know Razz At least I dont buy both versions anymore I've only got the CD + DVD version of Moon ordered.

For awhile Ku was my biggest artist <3 but then it mellowed out a bit which I'm glad, gave me a chance to get back into my other favorites.

I love Kuu <3
My favorite song from her would have to be....well, it's really hard to choose. I really loved Futari de.. though.

Futari de... is totally a great song, as if Yume no Uta. I feel the emotion in Yume no Uta more so that I can cry when I listen to it but I love the sweetness of Futari de... that just makes me smile.

Amai Wana you've got some great songs listed there by Ku <3 But I noticed under B-sides / Other A-sides you don't have Taisetsu na Kimi listed (B side off of Butterfly single) just curious is all, have you heard it? or do you just not like it?

Argh, ~2 weeks until my copies arrive and I can listen to the songs! It's sooo hard to have everyone else listening and enjoying the single. I think Lady Go! will be my favorite though based off of opinion.

In case anyone is interested, I've written a review for the PVs from Kingdom!!!

OMG, I hope you love it!! That's the one I pre-ordered and I never regretted it. The PVs are enjoyable and the performances were nice - my favorite performance was BUT and Cherry Girl and MORE were awesome!

Under > Black Cherry
But Black Cherry rocks too. My only (small) problem was that they took some elements out of INTRODUCTION that were really hot. If it were more similar to INTRODUCTION, then it would have been even better than it already was. Both are great songs though...but Under wins.
