    I think Naotaro Moriyama is a great singer and I love his songs but, still, whoever wrote his bio here is giving him waaay more credit than what's realistic.

    生きてることが辛いなら is such a great song! 森山さん needs to be appreciated by people outside Japan!

    I think so. He has so much talent. But the media underrates him so much too.

    I am laughing at the fact that SMAP is considered a similar artist. Anyway, fan since his debut. Keep on rockin', Nao.

    Its sad that he's not that popular outside Japan. He has the most amazing falsetto. I just love his voice and his songs. Faves: 夏の終わり and 旅立ちの朝 ~アルバム・ミックス~.
