LOL

"Kingyo Hanabi" is about unrequired love, right? And "PLANETARIUM", is it a lovesong? Seems like a song to a childhood friend or past love to me. So maybe those who posted it's an album with happy lovesongs are right.
Hope we'll get some comments from Ai in the booklet, as to why these songs were chosen. Or interviews, of course. Maybe they are meant to go from being freshly in love to a more serious feeling?
To me this album seems more like a way to cash in as long as there's some popularity left than actually trying to help her gain popularity. A well promoted single would probably be the better choice, because even if casual listeners will like the new song, will they be willing to spend so much money on a best just to get it? Let's hope it will at least do well on download charts. It seems almost like a kinda way to promote "LOVE LETTER", with the PV and new recording of "OnexTime" and a new recording of "POCKET".

Strawberry Jam???...Kimi Fetch?!?!?! WTF is going on with this tracklist?!

If it were me it'd include these songs, and all of her earlier ones would be rerecorded, NOT rearranged!!!

Amaenbo
Kingyo Hanabi
Natsu Sora(b-side from Neko Ni Fuusen)
Tears(b-side from Yumekui)
Kurage Nagareboshi
Ai
Daisuki Dayo
Friends
Love Music
Planetarium
Renai Shashin
Sora To Kujira
...cause I love it SOOOOOOO much

and a new song as long as it doesn't suck!!

That's true but she could have at least released a single then a mini-album. That would have been better. But maybe these decisions aren't up to her.

That would probably actually work cause it was her happy crazy songs that got her popular.

What the.... best... love songs... WHAT?!?!?! This "best" album is stupid! :irked It's missing so many good songs!!! I just... what are they thinking? I mean, it's cool that she's re-recording some songs, I guess... and we get a new song and "new" PV but... :( Maybe Ai should just go off and get married and be done with it then. I just feel very depressed about her.

TITANIC 29th August 2009 05:10 AM

I dont think its necessary with new recording because her voice since debut until now is same.. nothing change so whats for the re-recording.. it's not like ayu her voice changed alot since debut to A BEST to 10th anniversary project

Tom Punks 29th August 2009 07:04 PM

^ Actually, I think her voice went downhill over the years, but that's just me... :innocent

mmmm I think it's not just you , it's me also

that & also how many more times can you do the same stuff over & over again

the only time(s) where she really experiment was Cherish which I adore

after that , meh

Tom Punks 29th August 2009 07:20 PM

^ Yeah, she really does do the same thing over and over again. Like HEART, One x Time and kimi fetch are all practically the same song.

And I swear, it seems like her albums always end in a song where everyone goes "LA LA LA" at the end... :shakehead

Ooohhh I've been waiting to do that ! xD The Ai-chan thread has been moving so slow this year ;-; Unlike the Kuu thread...xD

I want this new ballads BEST album...maybe a crazyhappy-theme will be on the cards next? *_*; I hope so :D

ストロボ・EdGE 29th August 2009 08:07 PM

I don't really see the change of voice. Like her voice in Momo no Hanabira and Bye bye, lets say, sounds the same to me. But you guys probably can tell more since I'm a casual listener of her work.

Wasn't LOVE LETTER pretty experimental in the sense that she changed her style drastically? She also did that jazzy song in there, Shachihata (I think that's what it's called).

waterballoon 29th August 2009 08:21 PM

I think her voice is still the same - good, but the styles of her songs are just.... she needs to reinvent herself if not she'll just be boring again... I won't be surprised if her "new" song turns out to be like HEART or something...

sugarbasil 30th August 2009 12:08 AM

I dunno. I don't think her voice has changed much since her debut. I mean, I can hear that her voice matured a bit, but it's 95% the same to me. :shrug

And I have to agree with whoever said that LOVE LETTER was an experimental album. There are songs like Shachihata and 360 in there. Those are actually my favorite songs.

NintendoHTF1242 30th August 2009 02:03 AM

Cherish wasn't experimental. It was an epic rock ballad. We've seen many of those from many artists.

360 was pure experimental. I wouldn't expect to hear that kind of song from anyone else in the world.

I already did that, and it doesn't have much sense especially at the beginning, that's why I asked if someone can make a quick translation

But thanks anyway ^^

KarenPang 30th August 2009 04:55 PM

I have a feeling that YesAsia might give a description of theirs pertaining to LOVE is BEST in due time

just wait for that to happen :yes
