Some background information about "10 MY ME"

The studio album called "10 MY ME" is the 10th album by Japanese pop music group Morning Musume (now Morning Musume 20). When I heard their amazing 41st single called Kimagure Princess, I knew I had to buy the album. The album was released on March 17, 2010. It has two members who are not Japanese. LinLin and JunJun are from China. They are the only non-Japanese members in the history of Morning Musume. At this point in their career Morning Musume had eight generations of members. The album’s strongest songs are in bold.

Which Morning Musume Members Sing On the Album 10 My Me?

Although seventh generation member Koharu Kusumi is not credited, she makes an appearance on the album. Other members singing on the album are Ai Takahashi, Risa Niigaki, Aika Mitsui, Reina Tanaka, Sayumi Michishige, and the very beautiful Eri Kamei. Michishige would assume role of band leader following the graduation of Niigaki in May 2012. Mitsui would also graduate from Morning Musume at this time due to injuries she sustained.

A Brief Review of the Album "10 MY ME"

The album is a mixture of dance pop with some electronic elements mixed in. After the energetic opener Moonlight Night, the amazing song Kimagure Princess can dazzle and awe the listener. It is one of the first highlights of the album. Okii Hitomi (Wide Eyes) is another excellent song that has been one of my favorites. As an interesting side note, Hitomi Yoshizawa’s first name means eyes. Nanchatte Ren ‘ai (fake love) has some vocals that would make you think it is a rap style song. However, it switches to pop music style quickly. Loving You Forever is a decent song and there’s not much to say about this one. The last song in the album called Ame no Furanai Hoshi de wa Aisenai Darou is a song that sung entirely in Chinese. I think that this adds an interesting dimension to the album. 10 MY ME is one of Morning Musume’s strongest albums. Every single song is good! Even though Morning Musume was more popular earlier in their career, this 2010 album is definitely worth it! If Purple Wind is the best song on the album Rainbow 7, I would say that the best song on 10 MY ME would be either Kimagure Princess (known as Fickle Princess in English) or Okii Hitomi. One thing I don’t understand is why did they have that spoken part about electroconvulsive therapy before the first song starts to play? It is one of those weird parts in music but still, Morning Musume is a group that has been consistent in their songwriting!

The song called "Wide Eyes"

How is the Album 10 MY ME in 2020?

Even if the spoken part in the beginning of the song Moonlight Night is a flaw, there really are not many other things to nitpick and complain about for this album. It will soon be 10 years since the release of this album. How has 10 MY ME stood up over time? It may still be Morning Musume’s best album of all the ones that I have heard so far. Moonlight Night and Kimagure Princess are two very solid songs to start off this album.
