I have been listening to recently downloaded albums to see if I want to save them or what, and have found a bunch that were really good! So I decided to upload and share.Ashlee Simpson - Bittersweet World
I have an older album of hers that I've never listened to, and have heard a song or two that I liked okay, but wasn't totally wowed by, but I really loved this new album. It has a very Britney-circa-In the Zone feel to it. My favorite is Ragdoll.Robbie Williams - I've Been Expecting You
This is an older Robbie Williams album that I only recently downloaded (or rather, I think Bruce downloaded it for me). I liked it more than any other of his albums that I've listened to (though Intensive Care has several songs I really love). I especially love No Regrets.Kara's Flower's - Fourth World
This is the band that became Maroon 5. The style is really not the same at all, but I really like it. And Adam Levine's voice still has that intense whine that I love about Maroon 5. XD I really, really love Soap Disco, and nothing else quite comes close, but I liked the rest of the album quite a lot as well.
One of the awesome albums I listened to was Utada Hikaru's Heart Station. I wasn't that thrilled with Ultra Blue, so this was a nice surprise. There were a lot of songs I really liked on it. It also got me into the mood to listen to more of her stuff, and while I thought about doing a post with just my favorite songs, I decided to just upload all her albums and list my favorites that way, rather than trying to come up with commentary for each song (which would mean I'd put it off for ages). Anyway, I picked five favorites each from the three albums I really like, as many as I could from Ultra Blue (which turned out to be two), and er...most of First Love, because listening through, I still love that album so, so much. (Albums are listed in order of most recent to oldest.) Heart Station
Favorites are Fight the Blues, Heart Station, Stay Gold, Take 5, Niji Iro BusUltra Blue

I also have a bunch of non-album tracks. Simple and Clean

(Green Day), I Love You
* (Ozaki Yutaka), I Won't Last a Day Without You (with Shiina Ringo)
(The Carpenters), Konya wa Boogie Back
* (Ozawa Kenji), Living on My Own
* (Freddie Mercury), Take on Me
(A-ha), and With or Without You
(U2). Those with asterisks are favorites.
I also have some requests I filled for people. I haven't really listened to Tategami, so I can't say much about it. There are some really good songs on Faces Places, though, especially the title track, and also Face and So Far Away from Home (Beautiful Journey).Go! Go! 7188 - TategamiGlobe - Faces Places
And a couple of individual tracks as well, both of which I love.Go! Go! 7188 - Jet NinjinHana Hana - Sayonara Daisuki na Hito
