One of my hobbies is to listen to albums of bands/artists I've never listened to (which led to making a site where you can preview and download it. And no *I* don't upload the music I just find the links ) So far I've listened to new albums by :

-DBSK
-Shinee
-Big Bang
-Wonder Girls
-Fly to the sky (Devennium their 2009 album)
-Taegoon
-Utada Hikaru (The One) etc.

I was wondering what some other really good albums are? They can be Korean, Japanese, or Chinese, I like all types.




(Number 1. Their Japan Album)

Singles:

Chicago Poodle-Odyssey (March /17/ 2009)
Their debut single.
Although not as good as the previous indies album aisansan, but still great enough to make this single my favourite yet in 2009.
Genre: Jazz Rock/Funk Rock<<?

Albums:

B'z-B'z The Best ULTRA Treasure (Sept/16/ 2008<<Kind of late already...)
Their second 20th anniversary best album, containing many of the hidden hits in the albums voted by over 400000 fans and two new songs: Glory Days and Itsuka mata koko de. Especially itsuka mata koko de, I've been listening to this song for more than 100 times already.
Genre: Hard Rock


Kourin-ヒビノウタ (Feb/18/ 2009)
Suitable when you are having a lazy afternoon tea.
Genre: J-pop



Mai Kuraki-Touch Me! (Jan/20/ 2009)
This album topped the oricon chart of the week (FINALLYYYY)
Better than the previous album<<One Life>> and the song Touch Me! is definitely one of the best out of Mai's recent works.
Genre: R&B


Shizukusa Yumi-THE PAINTED SOUL (Dec/03/ 2008)
Kind of a long wait since her last album (2 and 1/2 years) But this album is definitely one of her best.
Genre: Organic Soul

Hmm, -
Epik High - Map The Soul. puhsdadj'sad';jad;adjadk jadj I could speak about all day, but I think the jumble of letters says it all - it's an AMAZING album, there isn't one bad song, and I am unable to choose a favourite. I've downloaded it from Itunes, and I'm waiting for my physical copy now :D
Deez - a really talented new artist, I think he wrote something for Rain, but I'm not too sure. Either way, his mini-album 'Envy Me' is very good Devil's Candy is the best song on there in my opinion.
Super Junior - Sorry, Sorry - at first I found it terribly average, but I became addicted after a few listens. Best song - Why I Like You.
F.T Island - Jump Up, an extremely good album from an extremely good band, and the new member is pretty cute. Best song - Bad Woman.
Son Dam Bi - Type B, very good for a debut album, she's extremely talented, I don't have a favourite song at the moment.
Brand New Day - Lady Garden, I'm not actually sure when it was released, but I only discovered them a couple of months ago, they show a lot of potential - Bearable is the best song.

They are all I have at the moment, that you haven't heard of, anyway.

Thank you. I enjoyed both of Koda Kumi's albums (It's ok if it was still in 2008 you didn't break the rules ) Ajoo was also good.
I'm actually listening to a song from 'Map the soul' as I read your post and thanks for all the suggestions I'll check them all out.
