It’s that time of year again where we rank the best of the best in Japanese singles and albums for you, our listeners!

 

We’ve been conflicted about the J-Music scene this year. It started out strong and then devolved into a post-apocalyptic wasteland of lackluster idol songs and half-assed Korean covers. But now we’re going beyond thunderdome*, baby! We don’t need another hero, we’ve got Japanese Music.


*Jaylee is Tina Turner in this scenario.
