"slow,rich,elegant, and serene type jpop..."

Check out both of Ayaka Hirahara's CDs (debut and latest). She's probably best known for her exquisite "Jupiter" rendition but her depth and range are quite amazing imho.

GUITAR WOLF
THEE MICHELLE GUN ELEPHANT
HI-STANDARD
But the 3 bands above are disbanded or suspended their activities. I am not sure, but some say that HI-STANDARD will be active again.

ROSSO
YURA YURA TEIKOKU
are also my favorite bands who are active right now.

THE MAD CAPSULE MARKETS
is a band who are popular in Europe, esp., in the UK.

When you listen to SKA, TOKYO SKA PARADISE ORCHESTRA, releasing their albums in Europe and US this year, would be your choice.

Dir en Grey, Psycho le Cemu, Glay, Miyavi, X-Japan, Malice Mizer, Luna Sea, Yutaka Ozaki (some of those might be more 'rock' or goth than pop, though...)

I listen to any song by MISIA and Ken Hirai.....they are both pop/R&B ish....

MISIA is the only female artist in Japan who can sing 5 octaves......I think she is better than Celine Dion haha......younger at least!!

Actually my avatar is the cover of MISIA's latest album "Singer for Singer." Excellent album!!!

^_^

I recommend that you listen to Gackt, L'Arc~En~Ciel, Dir En Grey, V6, Arashi, basically anything from Johnny's Entertainment (JE)...they're all really good and if you want to listen to some good Kpop, I recommend you listen to DBSK...they're really good too, I just love all of them ^^
