» » » [New Release] Koda Kumi - Bon Voyage


CD+Blu-ray | CD+DVD | CD Only

If you've been in tune with J-Pop news unlike me, you would've known that Koda Kumsies will be releasing a new album as per usualz and just like how it's titled Bon Voyage, it would seem that she's also bidding farewell to her budget over at avex because the covers look terrible!

When I first saw the promotional picture before the covers and everything were even out I honestly thought Kuu would prove me wrong and deliver stunning visuals for the album a la JAPONESQUE. Unfortunately, that was not the case.

The only decent cover would be the CD+Blu-ray one but the typography just looks a mess. She looks incredulously old in the CD+DVD cover, and the CD Only cover is just trashy as hell. That shit looks like something I would see on the packaging of those kinky role play costumes in sex shops, and the first thing I really noticed was the K that was plastered flat over her vagina.

The art direction just did not work out and the only things that looked like they had effort put in were her nails, and that's like, 0.3% of the cover? And there was so much potential with the whole nautical theme going on too!

Plus, I can't help but be reminded of this monstrosity and we all know what was the state of her career like by that point.

Nonetheless, musically, I am pretty excited for the album. Based on the album tracklist it doesn't seem like there'd be any cutesy songs on this album which is awesome (something I appreciated off Dejavu) and I really enjoy SHOW ME YOUR HOLLA. I've pretty much given up hope in expecting musical consistency in her albums so I just pray for the best that this doesn't turn out a mess *coughUNIVERSEcough*.

Bon Voyage will be released on 26 February 2014.
