So they'll release a live album with it? If so, fantastic decision!

truehappiness 4th June 2020 10:15 PM

TA only version seems to have 2CD Live CD + goods with it.

koumori 4th June 2020 10:17 PM

This is great news :heart Thanks for posting it, it's great to see a CDL release again.

hud 4th June 2020 10:22 PM

great news! I like the cover.

jbrat2219 4th June 2020 10:27 PM

Lord, she has so many songs... I'm like "I love this version of Progress!.... [brain.exe crashes] I mean Song 4 u!"

Ugh, I'm getting old lol.

KLJames 4th June 2020 10:27 PM

nice cover (bad font XD)!
now i wonder how she handle the 'snowy kiss' fall scene since she only have scenes from one show.
both broadcast version show how hurt she was in that one minute..

ayuPanda 4th June 2020 10:28 PM

I'm so happy. I really like the CDL.
The cover looks stunning. Wish I could buy the TA version Q_Q
I'm curious which goods she will use for the release.

Aderianu 4th June 2020 10:30 PM

cover is so lame

I assume they have some more angles to use from that so they can show some other aerial footage or something.

Goodswise I think they'll probably do a pouch or some small trinket kind of things like keychains.

Yes, I don’t feel it...

I’m happy for a new release, I wonder what the content of the 2CD will be.

truehappiness 4th June 2020 11:09 PM

They say that TA gets live CD + goods in their version, so logically it should be the Promised Land audio in full but not sure if it's enough to be two CDs... or if they maybe just are doing main show + encore?

attractive nausea 4th June 2020 11:11 PM

Crazy idea : The content of the 2CD are the songs selected from ayumix2020 challenge lmao

It's a pre-premiere event. You will be able to watch it on August 23rd and you need to pick the hour. It's going to be live-streamed without getting archived.
And I love this release already :luv2

Ordered the one with the latest streaming because of time difference^^

I like the cover, it's nice, nothing really fancy, she kinda gives me Namie vibes there. I just wish they worked on the font a little better.

And what a surprise, it's gonna be released on my birthday. lol

I don't think it's related to that since they mention in descriptions on the official site it's two live CDs.

The stream TA bonus is a bit weird. I wonder where they'll hold it and why they're doing it for this release.

Honestly, they probably don't edit the tracknames or English translations of anything which is usually why we get a lot of those typos. I would guess someone hit something incorrect and just didn't go back to change it, lol.

◆DVD & Blu-ray 'ayumi hamasaki COUNTDOWN LIVE 2019-2020 ~Promised Land~ A' will be released!

We have announced the film adaptation of the countdown live event 'ayumi hamasaki COUNTDOWN LIVE 2019-2020 ~Promised Land~ A', which was held on December 31st, 2019 at the Yoyogi National Gymnasium Venue No.1.

Since its debut, we have performed many important live events, and the countdown live event has come back to our so-called 'sacred place', in which it has previously been held every year since 2000, for the first time in 3 years.
ayu's overwhelming and soul-shaking performance featured choirs, as well as specialist players of string and horn instruments.
These have provided a breath of fresh air to our typical songs like 'Fly high', 'Boys and Girls' and 'evolution'.
This was a one-night premium show where dancers and performers perform a variety of productions unique to the center stage.
Here is the impressive stage on which the show was held, including the wonderful set list and the countdown's touching moment in the song titled 'Song 4 u'.

The first limited edition DVD, (the TeamAyu/mu-mo shop limited edition DVD) includes some original merchandise!
In addition, we invite everyone who has ordered the first limited edition DVD on TeamAyu to an online preview event where you can watch the film before the release date ♪

EndOfTheWorld 5th June 2020 05:28 AM

So glad that it was officially released.:yes
Cover art is nice but feels like not much effort has been put into it. I'm curious about the 2 CDs.:think

Toniayu123 5th June 2020 08:25 AM

Cover so gay, love it. Kinda tempted to buy the limited edition, but still waiting por PoM 2018 lol This concert was good, but I’m a bit reluctant to purchase concerts where Yochan is not on :laugh

So the goods in ta/mu-mo edition is set of clear files or it's just additional bonus?

The clear files is the bonus when you order at mu-mo/TA (allthough you can only order this version at mu-mo xD )

btw mu-mo is accepting Paypal now?! o.o Didn´t believe that will ever happen xD (I don´t use it because credit card has better exchange rate though)

^ thanks.

I usually don't buy DVD, but I think this time I may get it. Show was awesome, it definitely deserves to be released. The only thing that bothers me, is that video was cropped

They didn't accept my VISA card though... had to use PayPal in the end T.T

Deep snow 5th June 2020 11:52 AM

finally a new release! I hope the live CD will have better audio quality than A BEST LIVE :luv2

also, I'm OK with the cover, but I'd hoped that she would use that truly CINEMATIC still from sending mail, where the dancers were all around her like "hugging" her. I couldn't find that image anywhere but I remember really loving it :laugh

EDIT: found the image from Ayu-Vogue Network

I hope they include it as is.

it's astounding to see her keep performing despite such a shocking and certainly painful fall. she handled it really well by sticking in place until the bridge(?) of the song came up. such a consummate professional.

Sky High 5th June 2020 10:05 PM

So happy for this release :)

MKAyu 6th June 2020 12:36 AM

The YouTube preview looks amazing! With all the concerts up on YouTube thanks to corona virus some performances and visuals started to blend together. But this just looks incredible!

Katsuyuki012 6th June 2020 01:36 AM

Here we can see more of Song 4 u itself, as well as Fly High, Happening Here and evolution. :heart


Love the shot at 00:34. This is definitely one of my favourite CDLs! :heart

I think it would be cool if they put up a curated setlist of her future concerts on YouTube for a few days as promotion.

Katsuyuki012 6th June 2020 07:15 AM

There will be two digests, one with commentary by ayu and her dancers and one without. They'll premiere in a few hours but here are the links, just in case any of you would like to set a reminder. :)

With commentary:


Without:

maxikot 6th June 2020 11:11 AM

For MIJ/MIT they also did 2CDs. Each live album had 11 songs, so maybe the first CD will have songs from CDL19-20 and the second could have polished audio from TROUBLE Tour 2020. That is, if they recorded the audio. It could also end up being Promised Land's main show and encore.

Katsuyuki012 6th June 2020 12:18 PM

They showed ayu's fall! They included an audience reaction and you could see ayu shake her head when she tried to get up. When she finally did manage to get up they also showed that, how she stumbled and how she made a painful expression afterwards. Great choice imo.

Evolution7/4 6th June 2020 12:21 PM

Looks like they kept the fall in! Even had an audience reaction moment lol

Katsuyuki012 6th June 2020 12:34 PM

I'm really curious to know what ayu said! The DVD seems to be great, I can't wait for it! :heart Obviously, her energy was lower there (especially towards the end) but we all know why and I still think it's a great concert.

Chris_Duvall 6th June 2020 12:38 PM

I‘m glad they even included the fan reaction. Great choice - and Ayu handled it really well!

Katsuyuki012 6th June 2020 12:42 PM

Actually showing her in pain really added to the performance, it makes it so raw. Plus we know it pretty much affected the rest of the show, especially during the encore so hiding it wouldn't be the best idea, I guess (and there isn't that much they could work with to make it look good). She's so strong.

I love this version of WARNING!

Deep snow 6th June 2020 01:01 PM

omg. not only did they include the fall scene, but they also zoom in on her face during the whole ordeal and the shocked reactions from dancers and some audience members. RIVETING CINEMA MY HEART :cry

Chris85 6th June 2020 01:39 PM

The arrangements and the choir are so good, but can barely stand that recurring cutesy voice and how she changes her voice to a very unnatural and uptight sounding one whenever she screams or singing something like "yeeeah!". I wish she just used her real voice. After that idol days video can't help noticing how fake her voice often is.

maxikot 6th June 2020 03:18 PM

Everything seems perfect, the editing, angles. And snowy kiss is breathtaking, I am so glad they showed her struggle with getting up and back on stage. It amplifies the performance so much.

adrtwb 6th June 2020 03:48 PM

I hope there will be a translated version! I want to know what ayu said :p

ulfy01 6th June 2020 04:04 PM

That was soooo good to watch. I'm bribing my wife to translate the whole thing tomorrow for me. :cool

Off-topic, but PayPal lets you choose to convert the currency with your bank and pay in yen instead!

Evan Odinson 6th June 2020 05:39 PM

Love the cover, wish I could get this release but with the current situation I can't afford it, maybe someday in the future, she looked really cute during the live diggest video :love

chocopockymaster 6th June 2020 06:19 PM

Have they said if the commentary from Ayu and her dancers is also going to be included on the DVD? Seems like such a wasted opportunity if not.

roxaskh2fm 6th June 2020 08:18 PM

The edit is amazing!! Can't wait for the full release

KLJames 6th June 2020 10:20 PM

i like how they handle the 'snowy kiss' fall scene! is like the way they handle her earlier release. she is not perfect, she can forgot lyrics, she can fall down.

AJFmzk 7th June 2020 06:00 AM

^ I was going to say the same thing. The way they showed the fall and how she handled it like a pro and looked all the more beautiful doing it. They almost made it look like she fell gracefully. Not a fan at all of the cover, they had so many great shots to choose from. The photo of Ayu is fine, but comp is lazy and amateurish. I'm interested to see what the 2CD and Goods are for the TA version, but I feel like I'd go for the just the regular version, if I end up getting this show.

FoxyPinkGirl 7th June 2020 06:35 AM

Meh. I’m glad she’s releasing something. But this was by far my least favorite CDL she’s ever done. It’s very...underwhelming for me. It sounds great, but it was a bit boring for me. Yes I know she just gave birth the month before and I know that had everything to do with it. But she was stationary most of the time and the choir....I could’ve done without. She’s doing way less with her band ever since she’s been performing in the halls (like all other artists have been forced to do) due to renovating for the Olympics. I miss her band. It’s the second time she’s had the opportunity to use her band since POM 2018, and she opted for the choir again. Again I’m really glad she’s releasing some stuff. But it just wasn’t for me.

Chris85 7th June 2020 12:14 PM

So have people downloaded the videos from Youtube? I totally forgot and now they're gone.

labello 7th June 2020 01:42 PM

I just got a TA mail announcing more of these commentary videos! I think it's a great idea to offer more of Ayu's thought process behind the tour and the performances.
She really as been more engaged in this off-time.

Hello to TeamAyu♪

I would like an commentary for concerts from AT08 onwards. We don't get much access to behind to scenes/commentary info besides rehearsal videos on youtube/ig. I also hope there are english subtitles

Would be interesting to see if she says much in the live commentary for other lives.

The airing platform is mu-mo LIVE (*). You will need to pay to access“

Pricing is not yet decided.

That's really amazing!!! Can't wait!

truehappiness 8th June 2020 11:37 PM

Moving it to a Japan only [?] pay platform is a bit weird but I guess this may result in rereleases of concerts with commentary if they're requiring payment for these.

Lol the person who edited it's generasia page wrote "CHERRY BLOSSOMS" instead of SAKURA.

TA seems to get to choose 3 out of these in order of preference, random inclusions of CDLs for some reason. Ayu posted on TA that she isn't sure if they're gonna just do the one that gets top choice most or the three that get the most votes but I think they'll do three at least to make people happy.

What happened to PoM2018 haha

It seems that Ayu really doesnt want to deal with PoM 2018, maybe the show didn’t live up to her expectations but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

I voted for AT2006 first, then AT2010 and AT2009 (I know AT2009 is not the best but I have a soft spot for it, I hesitated with AT2005 and Asia Tour 2008)

I voted for Arena tour 2006, RnRC 7 days special and A BEST LIVE 15TH anniversary.

Did anyone else see Timmy and Yongae's NO FUTURE video? I hope Ayu uses it as inspiration to sing it live in the future. :love

She must have nothing good to say about AT18

Toniayu123 9th June 2020 09:19 PM

Whatever. PoM2018 >>> promised land, PoA^3, trouble, JTB. Last TRUE concert for me. (I liked some of the others too tho)

maxikot 9th June 2020 09:23 PM

I can't wait to see the goods of the TA version. Both editions could come in a box with glitter elements just like the stage was ^^

Aderianu 9th June 2020 09:37 PM

^ I don't expect much, plastic box like for A ONE. Price for 2CD+DVD is not much higher than just DVD, goods will be really cheap.

I think this commentary suff is ok, but it's been way too long since she released something new and this lockdown situation is PERFECT to start composing again.

Please Ayu, new music... I really miss those days in which she announced full albums and we all got excited about the titles. We don't listen to new music since 2018, and it was just a mini album with 3 new songs. C'mon, it is time already.

mi|kshake 10th June 2020 12:57 PM

I know! I can't believe we're in a time where Ayumi isn't releasing new music (I realise she has a child but I didn't think anything would stop her) I suppose this time had to come given how much music she used to pump out. We had it good lol!

I appreciate the concerts, remix campaign and commentary Ayu/Avex have been doing through but really craving a physical release of some music.

//ABEST 10th June 2020 02:44 PM

she doesn't have a voice anymore so i'm personally okay with her staying having a discography as it is now.. i'd love some new quality songs but since the chinese version of MY ALL was so different and not ayu-like and after all this touring her voice seems to be very thin as we saw it in Promised Land and PoM ^3

Katsuyuki012 10th June 2020 04:01 PM

While her voice was thin as paper during A^3, that was an extremely bad show for ayu (vocally). On the first day it sounded a lot better. It's true that her voice is not as full anymore but Promised Land was a major vocal improvement. Some higher notes were still rather thin sounding but it was mostly very good. An example of 'full vocals' in that concert would be most of snowy kiss or Song 4 u.

MY ALL sounded different, yes, but she also sang in another language (which she doesn't even speak). Also, Ayu is the same woman who recorded WHATEVER and talkin' 2 myself. Her voice changed many times over her career.

I can see where you are coming from (and there have been many ups downs when it comes to her vocals in recent years) but I wouldn't write her off like that.

Chris85 10th June 2020 04:44 PM

Her voice is still there, even if it's changed and damaged comparing to her early days, she just doesn't use it properly.

Major and short-lived as we can hear on a fan recording of a follow-up show.

Better thin-sounding than screaming.

Toniayu123 10th June 2020 06:52 PM

Nothing recording on a studio and editing cannot save. Never will lose my hope someday she’ll give us new songs

indigochild 10th June 2020 07:01 PM

I've made peace with the fact that Ayu isn't the music releasing monster she once was. She delivered an iconic discography that I can always go back to and truth be told, I don't have much faith with her releases these days lol But who knows. She could surprise me!

Agreed - she can do as many takes as she wishes in the studio. She also doesn't need to make songs that push her vocals to extremes. I think she can make softer songs like Sweet scar, Will, Secret and rainy day and still sound great. They would actually be very welcome imo!
