About that name too, "form the MASTER" is a mastering studio that a lot of the Ayu staff is from.

I think Naoki Yamada is from here alongside Koji Morimoto?

I personally think they spent more money in the remastering than what would have cost Ayu to re-record some of the songs and we’d be more pleased lol It’s good to see they put some effort into it, he is a big name.

I never realized that they can fit so much content into one dvd disc!

files got smaller over the years

Katsuyuki012 13th March 2021 05:25 PM

^^It's not that surprising if you think about it. After all, they managed to fit all 2,5h of CDL19-20 on one disc. :)

EDIT: The Haru Yo, Koi PV has surpassed 500K views! :love

Google translation says "Teamayu / mu-mo shop limited edition will also be included in the ′′ Virgin Road ′′ Red and white singing song!" - does that mean it would be a new version of the song? My Japanese is non existent so that might be completely wrong! :confused

I just finished listening to the songs according to the DISC 1 set list and I found that it flows quite well. especially surprised by how well JEWEL fits right after Virgin Road. who knew. onto DISC 2 now.

no. it means the second DVD/BluRay contains the Kouhaku (red and white year-end song festival) performance of Virgin Road.

Evan Odinson 13th March 2021 05:53 PM

^I think it means the Virgin Road live performance at Kohaku, guess it's also "rare" footage, but I'm not sure.

Xianghua 13th March 2021 06:01 PM

Yes, it’s the performance from the 61st Kohaku :)

Nothing to do with that. Just lower bitrate for DVD video, worse quality. I remember bootleg DVDs where they managed to fit 4 movies into 1 disk.

Seeing the compilation today made me realized again how chameleon this woman is :laugh

u sure? I sear I have some crappy PVs from 2005 who are like 200 MB and much better quality ones from years later in the same format only 1/4 the size. In the end they only burn data on a Disc.

Deep snow 13th March 2021 07:29 PM

after listening to the tracks of DISC 2 in order, it flows alright but a little awkward. like, I think some of the songs need an extra second or two of silence before proceeding to the next.

I also find it weird that much of the lesser-known ballads are dumped on the latter half of DISC 2 instead of being slipped in between the big leagues.

still, 春よ、来い makes a fantastic grand finale.

AndyF 13th March 2021 08:52 PM

春よ、来い video has already 540k views on YT and it's growing. It's doing much better than the last 2 singles.

I haven't tried listening to all the songs in order but based on the track list, I share your feeling and also wish the lesser-known tracks could have been spread across other songs.

Has anyone created a playlist for "A BALLADS 2" yet? I would like to listen to it and anticipate the real thing coming next month.
