Aya Matsuura – 10th Anniversary Best Review

Aya Matsuura was one of Hello Project’s most successful solo artists. Before she was placed in one of many sub-groups; her starting above average vocals showed that her improvement was going to happen.

The 10th Anniversary Best album collects the majority of her singles into a sixteen song release. Ordered in what sounds chronological, you go from her highly poptastic beginnings to her more mature ballad songs. It’s a great look into how her styles changed even when directed by her company.

Matsuura could be considered an old-school Jpop singer with all the newer groups debuting, but she has always shown that her vocals were a step above others.
