5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music Speaks its Own Language 14 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
In my humble opinion, Nana Kitade is probably the greatest female vocalist in the world today! And in a profit-driven industry full of plastic pop, manufactured bands and "Aggressively cheerful music sung by people chosen for their ability to dance," her poor chart performance only serves to emphasise that she is a 'REAL' Musician.

Because Nana Kitade is Japanese however, I'm deeply saddened by the fact that very few people will ever hear this album. Not only because her record company will tend to focus on the domestic Japanese market, but because people will be put off by the fact that she is singing in Japanese.

In the words of Victor Hugo, "Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent."

Nana Kitade's music is so heart-achingly beautiful and passionate, you hardly notice that she is singing in another language. And trust me, after hearing her voice, you won't WANT to know what it is that she's singing about!

Translating Japanese songs into English is like trying to use cherry blossom petals to grit the garden path! The phrase "Lost in Translation" doesn't begin to describe how all of the lyrical beauty and soul is carved up and discarded in the name of 'communication.' So even though I would suggest avoiding the English version of 'Kiss or Kiss' like the plague, (the Japanese have adopted many English words, just like we say 'rendezvous,') I would recommend this album to absolutely anyone with a passionate love of great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Artist 30 Jun 2009
By Arwyn Atreides Ernesto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Nana Kitade but what with the anime 'Nana' it is next to impossible for me to get any of Nana Kitade's cd's at stores. I am so glad that I was able to find it online from a seller in the states! The cd is amazing, anime fans may know about Nana Kirade from the ending credits song for Full Metal Alchemist and probably from also trolling around Youtube, like I did lol

If you are a fan of Japanese pop culture, japanese rock, chick rock, or even are just looking for nice cool tunes I suggest Nana Kitade and this cd!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD; but buy it used. 22 April 2011
By Thanatopsis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As much as I love Japanese rock, the price to buy imports is absurd. This CD is one of my favorites, but buy it used and save yourself about $30-$40. As for the actual music, do a video search on your favorite search engine for "Nana Kitade Full Metal Alchemist" (unless you're already familiar with her from that show). That song ("indelible sin," if I'm not mistaken) is fairly represntative of what you'll be getting.
