Quote:
Can you save data in different formats such as audio, video, still pictures and documents on a single SD card?
Yes, you can save data in different formats as long as the card has sufficient memory capacity. However, to play or transfer the data you will need equipment that is compatible with the appropriate data format such as SD-Audio, SD-Video and SD Document.
- .wav files on USB are to be approximately 278 times better quality than the ones on the CD, likely to be digital masters of the songs
- microSD+USB+DVD+photobook edition will be housed in a 3 fold LP-sized packaging like the following image but LP-sized instead of CD-sized.

'アナログLPサイズの3つ折りパッケージにmicroSDとUSB、DVD、フォトブック、歌詞ブックレ ッ トが全て同梱されています。'

Singles' PVs:
MOON - Hideaki Sunaga
blossom (director's cut) - Takahide Ishii
crossroad - Masashi Muto
Virgin Road - Masashi Muto
Sweet Season - Luis Hernandez

Last angel - Masashi Muto
Love song - Masashi Muto
do it again - Masashi Muto

Dream ON - Masashi Muto

Masashi Muto was seen in Los Angeles via Luis Hernandez's Twitter directing PVs for tracks on Love songs. One seemed to involve the male model from Virgin Road with the other involving a plane crash and SWAT team. Perhaps they are one in the same? (See the photos at Luis' Twitpic: http://twitpic.com/photos/ishiiluis)

Some PV editing photos from Masashi Muto's plixi! Looks like they were working on Dream ON in the first one and the second one looks like Ayu around the plane crash site in whatever PV has the plane in it?

Click to enlarge.



The PVs for the album + Dream ON were filmed over the course of a week.

Dream ON was filmed first, Love song + Last angel over two days, and do it again was made last over two days.

I'm in the same boat as you! But I'm glad SDW is a bonus track and not part of the main tracklist lol.

No, she shouldn't. That would mean she have nothing more to offer by herself.

Not necessarily lol. She could just want to try a special project. Ayu is not too good to try other avenues of expression and it certainly doesn't mean she doesn't have anything more to offer. She could just, you know, want to do it lol.

Actually I'm happy she put SDW as a bonus track on Love songs .
I like that song, but I prefer she make a new song than fill an empty space with a cover song instead.

tbh, i reli can't wait for the album to be out. except for Thank U & SEVEN DAYS WAR, the rest of the songs seem to be melancholic and depressing, which is fitting for me in this period of the year...

Not neccessarily. Koda Kumi (no haters to this guys, please) has had a kick-ass year and had an amazing cover album released; which was just beautiful. But her own music isn't lacking either.

It'd be something different for Ayu to do a cover album, to put her own ideas onto songs she loves. It's another form of music expression, imo, not an artist being lazy. As Kuu proved, with making the songs totally her own, it's a talent being able to make a song sound original by yourself when it was made for someone else.

Thank U is really cute, and the preview is better than Sweet Season IMO.
And it's a good idea include SDW as a bonus track.

That is sooo not true. There are artists who can release great cover albums and they make the songs so much better! Ayu could pull it off.

I really enjoyed SEVEN DAYS WAR and it seems to be a really important song to Ayu. Am I the only one glad that it's added to the album?
