Part 1 was one of the best albums of 2008 and I think Part 2 is even better. The price is steep but I think I may have to bit the bullet and see her when she's here...

D*mn, too bad its only Tokyo. Wouldve loved to go if it was in Osaka. But hopefully she will only play her older tunes. Album 1 and 2. Her latest album was horrible!

She's a phenomenal artist, perhaps one of the best of her generation. If you're at all into Neo-Soul or R&B, and are in Tokyo, you should see this show.
