Vocaloid albums are released at a breakneck pace these days, so picking out specific albums to recommend can be rather difficult. But with a selection covering electronic and pop/rock, I think I’ve got a list of three albums that can make everyone happy.
Dual Sight was a collaborative effort between Vanguard Sound, a Chinese music production circle, and several other highly popular electronic Vocaloid producers from Japan. The cover art was done by Aka Akasaka, official illustrator of the Vocaloid IA.
The album was originally released in a 7 track version at Comiket 84, followed by a global digital release in September. Recently, the album received an International launch in physical format that includes a bonus 8th track by 8#Prince: The full version of Mysterious featuring the Vocaloid named Luo TianYi.
1. Dual Sight by G.K feat. 初音ミク
2. Offshore by Nhato feat. IA
3. Rebirth by Haloweak feat. 初音ミク
4. Liberator by Taishi feat. IA
5. Confession by G.K, Haloweak feat. 蒼姫ラピス
6. Desperate Parade by rest or stay? feat. IA

The Greatest Idol
Mitchie M is undoubtedly one of the most popular pop producers in the Vocaloid community. His works are known for being dangerously cute and addictive, and others also say incredibly realistic.
Following the announcement of his song Ageage Again as the theme song for the upcoming game Project Mirai 2 for the 3DS, he has also announced his first album release under a major record label.
The album contains 13 songs, and comes in two different flavors: A regular and limited edition release. Both albums include a CD and DVD, but the limited edition version contains three more videos on the DVD, and even a 12″ vinyl LP. The album is scheduled for release on November 6th.

DECO*27 Vocaloid Collection 2008~2012
Even if you’ve only been enjoying Vocaloid for a short while, then chances are you’re already a fan of DECO*27’s works. He has recently released a new song titled “Ai Kotoba II“, which is the second part of the story to the classic Ai Kotoba from 2009.
His newest song will also be included in his newly announced album, which compiles many of his greatest hits from 2008~2012. Like the album by Mitchie M, this album comes in several flavors: A regular edition, a limited edition, and a special edition (Japan only).
The regular edition comes with one disk containing 14 tracks, and a 20 page booklet. The limited edition includes a second CD with an additional 13 tracks, a 40 page photo booklet, and a DVD with nine videos. The special edition, which can only be preordered within Japan, contains numerous bonuses that are detailed on the official site.
The track list for this album is massive, too large to fit comfortably in this post. So once again refer to the official album site for the full details. The scheduled release date is December 18th. There is currently no crossfade promotional video available for this album, but you can enjoy his newest song “Ai Kotoba II” below.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgpROErtiBY]
