Hmm I like the lyrics and melody but the rest just sounds like noise? I‘d prefer something where you can actually distinguish a proper guitar or drums or something. That’s what I don’t really like about her latest songs, they’re so noisy it’s unpleasant to me. Maybe I’m just getting old lol. (And maybe it would sound better on some fancy speaker I don’t have.)

But fans to be happy with such garbage so ... I got nothing to say i guess
I have to agree with this. Clearly she or her team is watching this forum to get the feedback and idea of her music and career. When everyone willfully blinded to like or say "OMG IT IS SO GOOD," she just gets that and think "Oh right, lets make more things like this!" The insane level of political correctness and toxic fandom are crazy.

(not) remember you, MASK are purely RUBBISH.

I miss her Secret era a lot. The whole album flows so perfect.

I tried to resist the urge to give (NOT) Remember you a listen but I caved in. Had a blast listening to the track while running a few errands. It gave me a burst of energy that coffee has failed to do for the last 5 years. Super pumped for the remaining tracks!

I think when she has these sort of loud and bombastic songs, it's because she is feeling a certain kind of way about something. This kind of sound I think isn't new to her really either since I think some stuff in 2002-2003 were like wall-of-sound too where you just heard a ton of stuff coming at you.

With the electronic portions I think that might be to make it sound more modern but it would be nice for Ayu to do a band arrangement for some of these without as much electronic influence since that is reaallllllyy uncommon for her.

(NOT) Remember you is so so good I waited until I could listen to it directly from Spotify before listening to it again.
It really feels like it could have fit on NEXT LEVEL to me - rock-inspired electro-pop. It fits in really well where it is on the album.

Quote:
馬鹿やってんじゃない
ほどがあるってもん
どのツラ下げて
Who the fuck are you?

底辺のその更に下のラインをさ
超えた手どんだけ洗っても一生綺麗にはならない

笑顔奪われた小さな命からせせら笑われる日が
必ず来ます様に

てかね信じること 期待すること
二度とやめようってなる時も
それを自然と運んでくる仲間が居る

そんな君を見て僕が笑う
そんな僕を見て君が笑う
それってなんだかんだ一番
この上なき幸せね

YOU達は記憶から既に消去済み

一体何がそんなにダメだったのって
思ってそうだからねこの際ハッキリ言っとくけどさ

無償の愛をくれたものたちどんだけ欺いた
愚かすぎて泣ける

でもね悲しくって 苦しくって
立ち上がれそうにない時も
それを自然と癒してくれる仲間が居る

そんな君を見て僕が泣く
そんな僕を見て君が泣く
それってなんだかんだ一番
最高な関係ね

YOU達は記憶から既に消去済み

馬鹿やってんじゃない
ほどがあるってもん

てかね信じること 期待すること
二度とやめようってなる時も
それを自然と運んでくる仲間が居る

そんな君を見て僕が笑う
そんな僕を見て君が笑う
それってなんだかんだ一番
この上なき幸せね

YOU達は記憶から既に消去済み

大切だったよ それはホントだよ
でも過去系だよ
You screwed up

Is it just me or does this song have some strong Eurobeat vibes? Either way, I love it!

I definitely got a Euro or anisong type feel from this. You can tell that Hajime Kato did some work on anime tracks before too! (https://vgmdb.net/artist/15589)

I'm excited for the rest of the album! I feel like most of the singles feel so disconnected. I'm interested to hear how the album tracks tie everything together!

Just listened to NONFICTION until Summer Again on Spotify (the new album is up but not all the new songs). So far, I love it ! It feels connected and coherent ! Can't wait to listen to the others songs !

She definitely bases her career path on the 10 people, who post on here regularly. That was sarcasm, by the way. Since a new year just started you might want to learn what opinions are. You have the whole year for that.

Since most of the album is sandwiched in between two versions of Non-fiction, the original and a remix, I'd say it might represent the album's main theme. The whole theme of what you think is the truth vs what actually is the truth seems quite common in this era, even in the singles.

Kind of not a fan of releasing more songs before the album, since I want to listen to them immediately. I listened a little to (NOT) Remember you, but now I'd like to hear the whole song.

IMO "(NOT) Remember you" is the best song on the album.

@(NOT) Remember you
The song is really really really great. I also appreciate that she's working on her vocals again. That was something that kept me away from her songs for a very long time, and I know her music since 2002. Basically, I kept my eye on her for this moment. Hope she keeps up with her coach on a regular basis.

One critical point, I think the audio mix might be a bit all over the place, the vocals are fighting with the instruments. Would have been even greater otherwise.

I wonder what exactly happens with the mixing and mastering... 'cause it's really uneven in the last releases.

I really like NOT REMEMBER YOU because it’s so chaotic. Seeing the live with all the megaphones is a sign that she wants to bring across a message and in order to get people to listen to it, in the first place it must be noisy so that people pay close attention to the message being portrayed; a little bit of 1LOVE feeling as well

There was usually a bit of a refinement to the chaos though for older mixes. I think the backing arrange is a bit too loud in some parts of (NOT) while the vocals should be clearer imo.

It appears that most of the singles got remastered and mixed properly? Dreamed a Dream it is fairly obvious compared to the original mix. That might be why there's an album mix link now?

This link will be to the 'album' mix when it hits midnight for you!
