Miwako Saito - One Dozen Gentlemen (1995)
produced by Miwako Saito & Hirobumi Suzuki.
Has elements of pop, folk, synthpop, new wave, shibuya-kei, but it can be, in my opinion, rather spotty at times; probably due to the concept behind it: twelve different artists collaborated with Miwako Saito on this album's twelve different tracks, hence the name. But on the whole I do like this album, my favourite tracks are 'Best Couple' which sounds like some of Carnation's stuff from the early nineties, and 'Docchi Ga Shiawase' which is similar to a lot of the music Totsuzen Danball released in the early nineties as well. My least favourite tracks on this album are, unfortunately, the only two available on Youtube.
