ドリーム モーニング娘。(Dream Morning Musume) – ドリムス。① Review

Circa 2001, my college roommate told me to watch a video which turned out to be Morning Musume’s “Koi no Dance Site.”

That was my first introduction to Asian pop and how I became addicted to listening to as much music from Japan as possible which lead into my Korean music exploration.

Dream Morning Musume is essentially “graduated” members coming together and bringing back a lot of the classics from the beginnings of the group up to a few years ago.

The double album includes re-recorded songs along with two new songs. If you’ve ever listened to Morning Musume during the times these songs were released, then there’s nothing new.

Morning Musume, for me, created one of the blueprints for all idol based groups in Japan and it’s great to hear old members coming back and bringing the classics back to fans. Many of the members got better at singing, though some have stayed the same.
