Honestly, this album is bad. aeternal is an uninspired track that she's done 50 times and each one better than this. The way I am has a nice melody but is again ruined by the bland and bad arrangement with the stereotypical "emotional" piano, chimes, and flat generic drums.

W - now that's a track. Something full of life and interesting. I missed this Ayu, and the entire album should have had this energy, even the ballads.

Overall, this safe sound she continues to go for does nothing for her discography at all for me personally, and it's tiring to listen to entire bodies of work just to find one good track. I think I will stop checking for new releases from her for good and just continue to enjoy all of her material up to Colours (with the occasional tracks from AO and MIJ)
