Hikaru hands down. anyone who says otherwise is a bitch and deaf. she sings sooooo good live, probably much better than on cd. she's just a great artist and you can't deny her talent. anyone who does, your stupid and you should just go suck something.

They're not really rivals it was just really one of those publicity things pushed by Avex. In terms of voice, I do like Utada's voice better. Ayu's voice is really pretty. That doesn't mean its not that good b/c Ayu knows how to make her voice work and I've never heard a song by her that I think somebody could've done better. Her voice is really pretty and it can go either way. Sometimes, her voice gets kind of nasally and she sounds like a cute little kid or a cartoon. Her voice is dream-like to me and I like it, I just don't like it as much as I like Hikki.

Hikki, on the other hand, does have a really nice voice. The bad thing about her voice is that sometimes she'll get deep into a song that her voice sounds too breathy or whatever.

But anyways, for the question you asked, I pick Hikki.

Both are equally good and they have separate music design. But if I have to pick one (difficult thought), I think it will be Utada Hikaru.

That's cool. Since you listen to M-flo, you should try listening to "Final Distance" (remix) by Utada Hikaru and M-flo. They did an amazing job. I thought it was an entirely different song when I first heard it.

Ayu for me. Hikkies voice and style of music doesn't agree with me. Ayu has a unique voice and it's easy to tell her no matter what she sings. Hikkie would be told apart by her style. I was really turned off by the phrase 'I'm Japanesey' though.

I agree with you that phrase "I'm Japanesey" is a real turn off. Which is the main reason why I don't listen to it or have in my library. As far as Ayu's voice, I can somewhat distinguish her voice now, due to viewings of her videos. However, some of her earlier work, like "Trust", doesn't sound like her current vocals. Just listen and compare to a random Morning Musume girl's voice:

Wow, I don't know if a lot of people are tone deaf (no offence to those who ARE tone deaf) or simply... well. I can't describe it.

I did not take offenSe to your ignorance of whether or not the majority of the human population are tone-deaf or simply...hard of hearing? It just irks me when words are misspelled. A little advice, don't take it offensive if everyone don't share your crystal clear hearing nor assume that it's their fault. Be thankful you have such great hearing. Music is an art. Art is define and interpret by its audience. Laymen term: You like what you like, and I'll like what I like, and that's OK.

Ayu has one of the most unique voices I have ever come across with a Japanese upbringing. You can tell it's her, no matter what she sings. Hikkie has that voice because she was brought up in the west.

You may have meant that Hikaru have that particular voice because she can speak both English and Japanese, while Ayumi speaks primary Japanese and English as a second language because she grew up in Japan. Hikaru was raised half in the West and half in the East. Personally, I don't think it's such a bad thing to be brought up in the West. But since Ayumi was raised in the East, why is so many of her videos have westerners in it?

She was never popular till she sang for Kingdom Hearts, which was her lucky break and people though it was something fresh and new as the previous songs were in english. Many english music listeners like her because her song's have familiarity.

Familiarity? Isn't that true for every artists and not just Utada Hikaru? I adore Tommy february6, Plastic Tree, Frou Frou, Lena Park, and Daft Punk. There's no common aspect that any of these artists share, other than in my humble opinion, that they are awesome.

Thanks, SamuraiGirl2003, for that excellent explanation of the two voices. Like insane_killer_bunny, I have a short attention span.

ayu's songs are much more musical to my ears as opposed to hikaru's r&b tonal modulations. i feel like there's no main tune...

I do hear that Ayu's song has a main tune. That tune is carry out till the end of the song. Maybe that's why I get distracted from hearing the same tune. Either way, I'd love to find a favorite song from Ayu. Anyone have any recommendations? I've listened to the ones posted here, like Jewel, Trust, Bold & Delicious, etc. The only one I really like is Dearest, but I've liked that song since it came out, which was a long time ago.

Both of their songs are catchy, theyre both really beautiful but they both have terrible voices when not completly mutilated by buffers and effects in the studio. *shudders* live... Honestly I cant choose. Theyre like the same person to me.

they have really different styles and definitely have distinct voices that make them unique. iono i just find utada's songs more appealing, ayu's voice can get on my nerves sometimes but i still respect her. ^_^;;
