MP3: Embee - Upside down

From "The mellow turning moment", aka Embee makes an album of boring r&b that, despite the presence of many high quality guest vocalists such as Maia Hirasawa, absolutely cannot be saved. This is about as good as it gets and it's still not very good. File under: sleep aids.
