    Is this album any different than the last two? Because those two (although not bad) lacked variation.

    Moment is a great album.

    It actually seems a lot better than her last two albums. The last album I loved was Real World in 2010 (or pieces, if that counts, which is maybe my personal favorite of hers).

    Not gonna be anything groundbreaking, it seems... just chilled piano/guitar ballads typical of Kokia. Still #7, #8 and #11 sound really nice. :)

    Looking forward to it and hoping for a folk album =) Guess I'll pass on the DVD, given the annoying Japanese habit of overdoing sound editing and re-recording vocal parts.

    Powerful Artist that inspire me all the time. I think She is one of the great singer-songwriter in the world. I don't mind that she is now focusing on so many ballads and folk style in many recent albums. But you know I love these ballads more and more anytime of every listening especially when you understand the meaning of lyrics that encourage people and bring me to tears. Now my favorite of this day are "Hito no naka ni Aru Mono", "Ai wa Kodama Suru", "Kasa o Kashite Agete", "Hohoemi o Wasurenai You ni", "Daijoubu Daijoubu" and "Eiga no You na Koi Deshita"

    Okay. I'm am superbly impressed by the picture that is used as the main cover. It is filled with beauty and loneliness at the same time but I think it fitted Kokia just great. That picture has been used for a long time now and I'm just hoping that it stayed there until the end. Oh, and I see that Kokia's page has become another blunder with the tagging again since it's quite inappropriate and isn't fully a reflection for the genre of songs that she commonly make. There's so many Japanese artist has been slewed away with tags like j-pop e.t.c even though that they sang a lot more classical, doujin or medieval song like Ceui, Annabel, Shimotsuki Haruka and so on. This is very disappointing.

    Concerning Harmonie: the movie is scheduled to have a separate blu-ray/DVD release on November 28. First edition will come with a captionless version of the ending and a booklet including the lyrics and part of the musical score, but still no complete version of the song mentioned...

    There aren't many singers that sing with such purity and sincerity. An angel, that's what she is.

  • AfezeriaMiku

    Thank you for the info as well, mizumichan. On other hand, I fell in love with Hito no Naka ni Aru Mono so much that I kept hoping for her to create many other pieces of fantasy like that again.

    @mizumichan: Aww, that's quite a shame. It's a really nice song though! Thank you for the info btw, much appreciated.

    June 2014
  • mizumichan

    @guixiens: Any time! Sadly, it seems there's still no soundtrack or single announced with the song for Harmonie. I can only find information about the Blu-Ray release back in March, but so far no additional material has come out, and it doesn't look like the full version was featured on the Blu-Ray release either. KOKIA didn't write the song herself this time, so I have no idea about the odds of it appearing on a later KOKIA album. Sorry! Still keeping my eye out for news.

    June 2014
  • guixiens

    @mizumichan: Thank you! Did she release the song as a single? Can't exactly find her single album.

    June 2014
  • mizumichan

    v The title of KOKIA's song for Harmonie is also Harmonie ( アルモニ), according to the ending credits.

    June 2014

    I wonder what's the title of her song for Harmonie (Anime Mirai 2014). Does anyone know?

    v Try pieces. I don't know if it's anything same as Fairy Dance but it still has awesome songs.

    Does she have any output as good as Fairy Dance?

    Her voice is so unreal I can't

  • Rebirthia

    Believe in the spirit sounds nice~ But I really want to listen the LONDON BEAT in her songs soon, if you know what I mean ;)

    March 2014
  • Rebirthia

    Maybe it's because the multiple names this song may have that it doesn't appear to be one of the top songs, but you really have to listen to "何もかもが星になって" (Nani mo kamo ga Hoshi ni Natte ~Everything becomes a star~) specially The VOICE 10th anniversary version! And... did you know that this song was created way before 2008? ;) KOKIA sang "Nani mo kamo ga Hoshi ni Natte" at the Sanctuary Live in 2003 ~

    v Agreeing with everyone

    January 2014
  • Ennish

    v-- I third this. She's skimmed along the surface of experimental/art pop for a while now by infusing world and other influences into her music, but I feel like she should be a little more risky in her future endeavors. I love KOKIA's music and think she's a fantastic vocalist/songwriter, but I feel like she's capable of bringing out some left-field material.

    January 2014
  • Angeltearx

    Residuo_poetico, your totally right. She should release experimental new age stuff.

    January 2014
  • residuo_poetico

    Kokia's discography is so frustrating. She's got a gorgeous voice with huge potential, but her music could be A LOT more audacious/varied/freaky/whatever that'd bring out a hint of personality. Too many boring ballads tbh.
