    I think it's still simple and clean. But I prefer the english version and the remix of this.
    Anyone heard her new song? Kiss & Cry for some noodle ad.

    haven't really heard much of either.
    I remember listening to utada's first love(?) EP single about 7 years ago when it was a big hit and everyone was playing it. And roughly about the same time I heard some euromix ayumi cd in my friend's car one day.
    Ayumi had a squeaky voice, but I don't know if that was the electronic filtering since it was a dance mix.

    From those experiences I'd say Utada.

    from my limited interest in J-pop, kokia and namie amuro sounded better than both though.

    I like Namie Amuro's voice but she doesnt really have many many nice songs with catchy tunes etc.

    Hey thanx! I really prefer the Japanese one, so it's call "Hikari" huh? ok...! I thought that Utada was not good, but I'm starting to have second thoughts on that.. my sister was a really big fan, and she bought "Utada's 2006 TOUR " DVD and I was intersted in it...so yea...maybe Utada is alright...haha..

    Hey, I wanna know your opinions! Who do you think is prettier?!

    Ok, I got some pics!
    Ayumi Hamasaki:


    Utada Hikaru:


    For me, I think they're both very pretty but Ayumi just catches your eyes when you look at her.

    Of course, Ayumi will get more votes on appearance because she puts extra effort to look pretty while Hikaru has a more natural approachable look and I guess she doesn't dress up as much or make herself even more pretty than she already is naturally.

    I'm sure there are better pictures of Hikaru. Basically, Hikaru will amaze you with her vocals as the main focus.

    Ayumi will amaze you with her fashion and hairstyle and then her vocals.

    I prefer Utada Hikaru, she projects an attitude with her voice. Hamasaki look like a doll, and just a doll.

    that is true...ayumi does look like a doll! a pretty doll, but it does look a bit frightening sometimes.

    hikki can look very pretty sometimes, with the right makeup and everything (like most starts), but overall she's not an exceptional beauty.

    I would say Utada Hikaru. Ayumi Hamasaki's music is a bit "ehhhh" for me. hahaa.

    Plus, I love most of Utada Hikaru's songs. =D

    Hey, I heard that Utada retire, does anyone know if this is true? If it's true then it'll be a great lost to music! And yes, I love Utada now! I still love Ayumi too! They're both so great!

    I know Ayumi is known as the Empress of J-Pop. But still I think both are pretty good at singing. I like Utada Hikaru's Flavor of Life song. So far, I like Ayu's Dearest song.
    you can't possibly compare these two....I mean Utada is more R&B while Ayu is more ROCKTypes...so nope! No comparision for me....

    Although I will say that Utada does have a very strong voice and she can really scream it out! I like that about her...

    And Ayumi is ok, her songs are good to listen to..she have nice melodies and nice lyrics, but her voice may not be as strong as Utada though...I'm not saying she's not as good as Utada....

    Both have good qualities and both do very different things....

    Beside Suet Seung, how you know about Utada and Ayumi, I mean they are J-Pop, so how do you know them?

    I love Utada Hikaru's "Prisoner of Love" song.

    I like the style of Hikaru's singing and music better than Ayumi.

    Hands down it's Hikki for me. Till now First Love is still one of the best Japanese songs ever so Hikki wins. I'm a person who concentrates more on the actual singing and music, and I feel that Hikki sings better than Ayumi. Prisoner of Love and Flavor of Life are great songs. Ayumi is definitely more creative though, I have to say. Hikki doesn't need crazy promotions/marketing to make herself big...she's just a natural talent.

    Ayumi is too fancy for my liking. I admire Utada Hikaru for her naturalness and ability to touch the listener's heart.

    Here's some more Hikki songs

    Eternally - by Utada Hikaru

    Boku wa Kuma (I'm a Bear) - This song is so cute.

    Beautiful World

    There's so many cover songs for Prisoner of Love, but here's an interesting one done in English with translated english lyrics?

    Agreed, I gotta give love to my girl Utada. First Love made such an everlasting impression on me when I first heard it.
