Yes, it was bound to happen so I thought I would be the one to start.

Ayumi Hamasaki is a very talented musician. Her history goes when she was yanked from her modeling life-style and put into a musical environment and she has been selling CDs like hotcakes ever since.

Her music videos are EXTRAORDINARY, I think. My favorites are

-Ourselves
-Fairyland
-Moments
-Mirrorcle World (even though it's weird as crap, I just can't get enough!)
-Connected

So, competition to Utada aside, what are your thoughts on this artist?

I love Ayu!!!
Some of her songs that particularly stand out are...

1 LOVE
JEWEL
(don't) Leave me alone
Will
my name's WOMEN

just to name a few...

Her rock songs really bring it home and her ballads sound great too. Mirrorcle World rocks too and hopefully there will be a new single announced soon!

I love Ayu. =D She is quite humble and very dedicated to her work. She's definitely not a cookie-cutter idol and the lyrics she writes are heartfelt. Even though she isn't considered a vocal powerhouse, I like her voice. Though she has released some disappointing material. I wasn't crazy for her My Story album or some from her (miss) understood. And Secret was quite messy. Then again...that was meant to be an mini-album but it was pushed into being an album. But her music is definitely enjoyable. Though, I wish she composed more songs under her CREA name. Nevertheless, her last album was kick ass and her re-cut single was awesome. I was excited when I heard she was releasing a full version of Mirror, which was Guilty's opening song.

Taiyou's favorite Ayu songs:
Mirrorcle World
Evolution
M
Together When…
Marionette
untitled ~for her~
talkin' 2 myself
decision
1 Love
fairyland
Trauma
Boys & Girls
Audience
Who...
Jewel
Momentum
Endless Sorrow
monochrome
HANABI ~episode II~
No way to say
Heaven
Fly High
appears
To Be
Seasons
girlish
teddy bear
Scar
Key ~eternal tie ver.~
Rainbow
A Song for XX
You
Hanabi
Wishing
Dearest
Unite!
Angel's Song
Heartplace
Voyage
We Wish
Free & Easy
Startin'
Ladies Night
alterna
vogue
Heaven
Because of You
forgiveness
Memorial address
Moments
Carols
Depend on You
Surreal
Game
fated
Honey

Jesus Christ...xD

According to this website, it's the name she uses for songwriting.

Does she compose for other artists I wonder?

Yay! I was right, it's really the name for one of her dogs! But she has wrote awesome songs under her CREA name. Evolution would be the best example, such an infectious song. I wish she would compose more songs...D=

I don't think she writes songs for other artists...at least from what I know. ^^;

I really like her songs "Jewel" and "Voyage." I like these two remixes I have of "Independent" and one remix of "Voyage" that I absolutely adore. Then I have some other songs by her but I have yet to listen to them.

The Jewel PV was really stunning and beautiful I do say.

The Jewel PV is lovely eyecandy and gorgeous. In fact, it's one of the most expensive PVs ever made and Ayu is the only non-American to hold that title. I can't remember the amount. xD

I absolutely love ayumi hamasaki. Her and Hikki switch back and forth for the title of my favorite artist. I just can't choose one of them. haha

But anyway, what does everyone think of ayu-mi-x 6?

Personally, I loved it to bits! I thought most of the remixes were nothing short of superb! My only complaint was that there was no non-stop mega mix and acoustic orchestra version like with previous ayu-mi-x albums. The iTunes exclusive albums with all of the remix instrumentals and longer edits somewhat made up for that though. Smile

I want another Classical album, please!

Ayu is <3 Smile My first artist what can I say. I could go on all day about how great she is but when I last checked it's a Hikki forum lol anyways

it's always hard for me to pick my favorites of hers. I can't pick my favorite album or song Although I will say I love both Hanabi's <3 I have all her albums, remix albums and singles except for 3 singles that were limited to 300,000 but I'm always on the lookout for them. I've got the majority of her concerts I think I'm missing one.

ayu-mi-x-6 was good I loved the Daishi Dance Heaven <3 It was nice to have another remix album, I didn't know if I was ever going to see another one be made Sad
I have to agree with amorphose I want another classical album that or an acoustic one <3

I Love Ayu!!! My favorite song is Alterna Cool and my favorite album is (miss) understood. Her remix albums are pretty good, too. In fact, the VERY first Ayumi song I heard was You (Agressive Mix) off of one of her Eurobeat albums.

Me too! I just love that song! (Bold & Delicious) :-D It was actually the first song I heard of her too, hehe, funny :-) I can't see why people hate that song, I think it's rather catchy, hehe (^o^)

I agree! M is one of my favorite song, you should absolutley listen to it! :-D I would actually also recommend the "Above & Beyond" remix of the song (M) from Cyber TRANCE presents ayu trance 2. Even though I don't really like trance, I just love that remix! Pretty much all of the trance remixes are really good, you should listen to them :-D (^o^)

I've listened to Ayu for a little bit, but she's not my "favorite artist." In my opinion, her music is something that I can listen to on occasion, not something everyday. Hikki and Ayu both have different styles, so what I listen to really depends on an artist's style, and I apparently like Hikki's style better than Ayu's.

Don't get me wrong, I still like Ayu, just not as much as other artists.

Well I've listened to a lot of Ayumi's songs. I love her MegaMix albums <3. My favorite songs are "M," "Beautiful Day," "Talkin' 2 Myself," "Untitled ~For Her~," "1LOVE," "Rainy Day," "Voyage," "Independent," "Jewel" and others XD.

I wish I could get A COMPLETE ~ALL SINGLES~ for collection and support purposes X3
