Editorial Reviews

A definitive look back at her career so far, 'Utada Hikaru Single Collection Vol.1' signals the end of 'phase one' for the best-selling female singer in Japan. The set includes her fifteen hit singles to date, all remastered by Ted Jensen (Santana, Fiona Apple). All the songs illustrate her progress as an artist & songwriter during her five-year career, which she describes as 'pubescence'. It's a must-have for every Japanese pop fans!

In the obsessive, inward-looking world of JPop, the Holy Grail is to make it big in the US. Many have attempted, and to date all have failed. Language problems, talent issues, and lack of interest in US producers have all been cited. With Sony now actively promoting Japanese artists in the US, it would seem to be a matter of time before the Great Japanese Hope will make it.

Hikaru Utada may just be the one. Her parents are both musicians, she grew up in New York, was educated at international schools in Japan and (briefly) at Columbia University, is attractive-and can really sing. Her English is flawless, her range more than enough for the demands of a pop diva, and her phrasing clever and ironic and smooth. She manages soul and love ballads equally well. Songs such as "Time Will Tell," "Automatic," "Can You Keep A Secret" are featured on this compilation. Following up First Love, this is a must-have CD. Time will tell, but this reviewer expects her to be the One.

Incredible. The only word I can think of to describe this CD. Hikaru's voice is so amazing. There isn't a single song on here I don't love. (Please excuse me if my typing is bad, I'm not used to this keyboard, it skips letters sometimes, so please forgive me)

Time Will Tell was my favorite for a while. It has some 7-Club-7'y melodies, but that's a good tihng.

Automatic is awesome. It's a gret feel-good song. It's really upbeat and sort of techno-ish then slowly goes into pop.

Movin' On Without You isn't my favorite song... It's a good song, but I prefer the songs she does with a higher voice than this with her low voice.

First Love is a beautiful song that really shows off Hikaru's voice. It's another 7-Club-7'y song, but this one's slow, unlike Time Will Tell.

Addicted To You is still my favorite. It's a lot of fun. Chika chika uh!

Wait and See has a reall hot beginning. It's really cool becuase it goes between muted and regular and multiple voces and a bunch of stuff. It's upbeat and fun, definately a good dance song.

For You is a cool song, too. It's sort of Hip-Hop, R&B. It's another really fun song that makes you want to get up and dance even though you run the risk of all your friends thinking ur weird.

Time Limit is also my favorite (I have several). It's another hip-hop song. It's awesome. I'm pretty sure at the beginning the guy says "Ja Rule" which would be incredible considering the song isn't even in English. All I ever talk about is JPop and it's cool being able to say that my favorite artist did a song with Ja Rule. It's even Dark Child!

Can You Keep A Secret? is more dramatic, another 7-club-7'y song. If you're ever fortunate enough to see the video, it's so cool.

I first heard Utada Hikaru sing on the commercials for the video game Kingdom Hearts. I was immediately hooked to her voice and did all I could to get copies of both versions of Simple and Clean. When I heard she had a English language album I bought it instantly and loved it.

Latter I was interested in what this "Jpop" queen had done in Japan so I bought this album. I was not disappointed. There is a "Pop" feel to much of this album but it's so different that it won't seem tired. Her songs are done primarily in Japanese but she throws a line or two in here and there that's English (and almost all the track titles are in English too). Her voice is just magical, the woman can sing! You can really feel the energy of the songs even without know exactly what she is saying.

I recommend this CD if you have heard Utada sing before. If you are interested in Utada but don't know Japanese, buy her Exodus album first to see if you like her.

Warning: this CD will make you want to learn Japanese, her voice is just that good.

FYI: Track 12 sounds like Simple and Clean done in Japanese!

I am extremely excited about this CD, because it has ALL of Utada Hikaru's best songs on here.

Final Distance is the amazing version of the original song, Distance, also by her. If you ever get a chance to see the video for Budokan 5 with her, Traveling is just an awesome song. Hikari is, of course, the intro song to the PS2 game, Kingdom Hearts. Can You Keep a Secret, Wait and See, Automatic... so many great songs.

If you are a new fan to Utada Hikaru, I strongly suggest this CD. You will not find a better mix of her songs, in my opinion.

I agree that Ayumi Hamasaki is a great artist, but I find Utada Hikaru's songs have a stronger and deeper feeling to them because of the difference in voices. Ayumi Hamasaki did the intro to the PS1 game, Thousand Arms, with the song 'Depend on You', as well as the ending if you ever recall playing and don't remember who she is, so you can get an idea of the difference if you've played that and Kingdom Hearts.

what more can you want.. all her best songs on 1 cd i mean come on. i have many favorites from this Colors, Sakura Drops, Hikari (Simple & Clean for those who are wondering), omg Automatic, Wait & See and Final Distance thats just to name a few. if your looking for J Pop then this right here is definately something you need to get and if your a Hikki fan already you gotta pick this up quickly i think you know why i don't need to explain. i love Ayumi but she ranks a far 2nd to Hikki in my opinion. I hope to see Utada make it big over here in the states that would absolutely make my day.
