I've never bought an import album before and I'm having a little trouble.
I was hoping to buy a Vanness Wu album from Amazon, but my questions are pretty general.

I don't understand the difference between different "editions" of an album. There must be at least a superficial difference, but even searching different sites that sell them, most of them don't list the tracks and some of them don't even have the album cover.

Second, I would preview the tracks to pick which album I like best, but it's been hard since it's so much work to find the album track lists, which are mostly in kanji (which I can't read) anyway, then try to compare to the songs I can hear on myspace or youtube, etc, which are sometimes titled phonetically...

Is there some better way to go about this, or some website I've overlooked?
Thank you so much for your help.


oh yeah, editions could mean various things..

1. could be a simple CD vs. CD + DVD difference
2. could be small variation of what comes in the 'package' .. an additional track here, a small gift there, etc. many possibilities
3. editions for different countries, which would mean that the album jacket might be printed in different languages, have different photos, or any other thing they want to have that's different.

then there's this..
4. in TW at least, they have this common practice now.. that they would release a 1st (original) edition of the CD, say they produce 30,000 copies the first edition. If the album sales well.. and the sales number reaches close to 30,000... they produce a second set of CDs -- a 2nd edition, which usually comes with different album art/photos and perhaps DVD (with behind-the-scenes videos and/or MVs), etc.. if the album does not sale well, then they probably don't get a 2nd edition produced.

So, if we're talking about the 4th case.. if it's a good selling album and it gets a 2nd edition released, it might be hard to get a copy of the 1st edition since having the 2nd edition out usually means that the 1st edition is almost sold out~

---- *phew* sorry.. hope it wasn't too overwhelming.. ----

ok, the tracklist problem.. you can try on yesasia.com, but true, the tracklist isn't always in English.
i currently don't know one site that solves the problem.. but i'd say you can try searching google for the album while typing 'blog' or 'livejournal' or something... meaning, trying to search if a fan has posted an english tracklist or information on the album you want.

lastly, you said you want to buy a Vanness Wu album (V.DUBB?) ... anyways, I happen to understand Mandarin, so if you have a specific question on his album.. I can try searching it up for you.

cheers~

hihihi

im trying to find this MV which was about a guy who died but whose ghost followed his girlfriend/wife around for a while.
He watched her have an imaginary dinner or something with him (it could be the anniversary of the couple)
At the end of the MV the girlfriend has found a new man, and so the ghost is happy for her and 'leaves'

hmm this is all i can really remember, but i was just thinking about it and wondered how i could watch that MV again!
if anyone could help me find this MV that would be great.
thanks in advance!

All I can remember is this video where there is a "milk" that can walk

as the milk journeys into the song as I can recall

it meets a strawberry flavored drink, and also in the video, there is a bus
and then suddenly, the milk dies because of the bus (it bumped the milk? hahah I can't remember at all) and goes up in heaven...
both the milk and the stawberry drink

I can't remember the title of this one
(If only I know the title...I can see this video again )

so please help me

I'm overjoyed

I'm still listening to Do As Infinities Raven and Dragon Ashes My Friends Anthem, good songs but a tad older I need some recent Jpop!! Anything popular that sounds kewl! I can understand a little Japanese! So it can be about pretty pretty princesses for all I care I just love the sound/singing ^^ Thanks!!



I like these artists:
Koda Kumi (pop)
Uverworld (rock)
Yuna Ito (ballad)
Stephanie
Leah dizon (pop)
Bright (R&B, pop)
