This is a ranking chart that u/rocket_brown on the CityPop subreddit made to help others recommend City Pop artist to others who don’t know where to start on their musical journey. Don’t think of this as a “Good Music vs Bad music” type of list, but rather a Ranking of who some would take priority over recommending to someone. This is HIGHLY subjective.

    私の最後のアルバムの忘れられた通りは少し方向性がありませんでした、この新しいハロウィーンのアルバムは、継ぎ目のない色調のコンセプトアルバムになります

    ハロウィーンをテーマにした最高のトラックは、どちらのジャンルもスパイや恐怖に適しているため、フェイクユートピアまたはダークアンビエントのいずれかです。

    次のアルバムのナイトモールは、シンセロックのヒントが入ったダークアンビエントだと思います。それは残忍で内臓的な経験です
