On her second album, Yuming develops and expands her sound. With full-bodied arrangements and a wide range of musical styles, we get a solid record that shows off Yuming's skill as a songwriter. Wonderful stuff.

Album Highlights:
*Umareta Machi de (Bittersweet, nostalgic, and cinematic. Perfect opener that sets the tone for the album. A lush AM Pop opus complete with a jazzy flute solo.)
*Hitomi wo Tojite (Lovely mid-tempo ballad with a soaring chorus. Yuming shows off her Carole King influence here.)
*Yasashisa ni Tsutsumareta nara (Optimistic track with a strong melody and a lovely arrangement that flirts with Country. A timeless J-Pop standard that was also featured in the film Kiki's Delivery Service.)
*12-gatsu no Ame (A spirited number with a vaguely '60s feel, a slight Latin beat and a memorable hook. One of many songs to feature great background vocals by fellow J-Pop pioneers Sugar Babe.)
*Anata Dake no Mono (Funky with a capital F! Ridiculously tight rhythmic work from the session players, soulful backing vocals, and all-around great musicianship from everyone.)
*Watashi no Françoise (Beautiful baroque pop tribute to French singer Françoise Hardy. Yuming gives one of her most emotionally vulnerable vocal performances on this heartfelt track.)
