Hirai Ken, the not-seemingly Japanese ballad singer, has unveiled yet again another nice tempo, feel-good single. Kimi no Suki na Toko was released February 28, 2007 and reached #5 on the Oricon chart. It’s not exactly my cup of tea, but if you are a Ken fan you will enjoy it.

My Subjective Score: 6.5/10

1. Kimi no Suki na Toko
This really doesn’t do it for me. The song is pretty and the more I listen the more I beginning to like it. However, his voice sounds very nasally throughout most of the song.

2. Utsukishii Hito
Ok, this track sounds much better as far as a ballad goes. His tone is improved and he sounds more involved in the music with his voice. I like the simplicity of the background with the piano; Ken doesn’t need to have something covering up his voice because he can actually sing.

Track 1: Kimi no Suki na Toko
Track 2: Utsukushii Hito
Track 3: Bye My Melody -HALFBY’s music for momo REMIX
Track 4: Kimi na Suki no Toki ~less vocal~


A very interesting video. Ken is walking around in a house, continously opening up doors, closets, etc. and finding a girl and boy at differing ages. It’s like one big hide and seek game.
