Item description

Self Portrait is the 2nd Best Of Album by Hitomi

Vinnk's Take: Self Portrait is a very unique "Best of" album. The first disc is the usual best of with the greatest hits from albums Thermo Plastic, Love Life and huma-rhythm. The 2nd disc is re-recordings of tracks from her first 3 albums (Go to the Top, Déjà-vu and By Myself) These newly recorded tracks highlight her evolving style. One track even has her singing a duet with her past voice. There are also two new songs for the album, "Vibes" and "Understanding" and a new live vesion of Flow", which make the album worth owning even if you already have all of her other albums. And if you are new to this artist this is a career spanning album worth getting.
