Hiromi Iwasaki (岩崎 宏美) is a Japanese female singer who debuted in 1975. In 1981 she was awarded the Silver Prize at the Tokyo Music Festival. Pandora’s Box (パンドラの小箱, Pandora No Kobako) is her seventh studio album. It contains her most immediately recognizable hit song, “シンデレラ・ハネムーン” — “Cinderella Honeymoon” (1978) has been such a consistent feature of monomane talent Korokke’s routines, Hiromi Iwasaki has commented that when the intro played in concerts, fans would laugh, so she has ceremonially “gifted” that song to Korokke, whose performance has elongated both their careers.

Customer’s review:
What an unexpected gem. Music taste is very personal, but I’d like to think that anyone with an appreciation for jpop or classic Japanese 80s and 90s music would love this.
The tracks all have something slightly different to offer, in a chill way. The funk and soul definitely come through in the more upbeat fast tracks, but they’re accompanied by slow romantic ones too. The variety works in this albums favor for sure. The Surround mix is surprisingly good. They play with some drums and backing instruments/singers behind you, spin the lead vocals around in a couple songs, and gently envelop the room with harmonies when appropriate.
