Akina Nakamori: ZERO album~歌姫II, Resonancia & Akina Nakamori ~歌姫 ダブル・ディケイド~

Sorry for the delay everyone. I have been busy over the last two months and my blog time has been limited. The 3 albums in this post are the first of Akina's in the 2000's. ZERO album~歌姫II is the second in her cover album series and like the first, I have included the instrumentals and original versions. Resonancia, is Akina's first full length LP of the 2000's and has a distinct Latin theme. The late 90's and early 2000's saw a strong emergence of Latin singers in popular music, so its not strange that other countries would capitalize on this as well. Personally, it feels a little out of place for her, but the production compliments her voice and style for the most part. The last of the three, is Akina Nakamori ~歌姫 ダブル・ディケイド~. Romanized, the title is Akina Nakamori~Uta Hime Double Decade (DD)~, celebrating the two decades of her career with new versions of 12 of her top hits. Each track tackles a different genre, giving the album a diverse feel. Moreover, I'll let everyone figure out the pun of titling the album DD and having a Jessica Rabbit version of Akina on the cover lol. Enjoy!
