It's a shame Japanese music is becoming a lot more popular, it's great stuff but at the same time in a weird location of being niche to normal people and seen as entry level and subpar to people who actually are elitist music peeps. It's just annoying because I never really cared for music and once I found the genre that I really enjoyed and try to discuss it I either get blank faces or disgusted faces. It also doesn't help when Plastic Love is being pushed everywhere and getting the wrong kind of people into this, kinda brings the whole "look" of the fans down.
But hey, that's just my two cents. Not like I'm going to stop listening to this stuff because it's popular or it's seen as bad.
one somewhat niche albums
from that genre.
Yuji Toriyama & Ken Morimura - Aerobics
(Funnily enough, this quite possibly could be an album made specifically for aerobatics over just being an album to listen to, or possibly copying the aesthetic of the aerobatic music of the time. I'm still not sure myself, but enjoy it nonetheless)
...oh, well it seems like all the niche albums I have on my computer for this genre can't be found on Youtube, sorry about that. Still, check my post in the Music sticky for some others, I know I posted some more mainstream stuff there.
