Tokyo Girls' Style: 1st Best Album Review

J-Pop Video

There’s a real treat for J-pop fans on iTunes: the 1st Best Album Kirari☆ from Tokyo Girls’ Style is now available, laying down 26 tracks of pop perfection.

The vocal and dance group, also known as Tokyo Joshiryu, was launched by Avex Trax in 2010, and has since delivered a string of solid sophisti-pop, electronic, funk and disco-infused dance rhythms with heavy influences from '60s and '70s jazz, soul and pop.

Singles including the slick “Jujika,” the provocative “Partition Love” and floor-filler “Never Ever,” arranged by frequent collaborator Hiroshi Matsui (a.k.a. Royal Mirrorball), are among the fantastic grooves in the compilation, spanning the group’s history from their debut single “Kirari☆” to the present.
