The covers are REALLY nice. I mean they are fashion shots, but i love them, they look put together, and i don’t mind the text either~ The track list is questionable though lol

I don’t want the box set (making of/bts photo books are boring to me, and no interest in the videos/live)—but I do want the 8 cm CD blah.

This is more like a photoshoot for a magazine but it's not bad. My favourite is the CD only. I'm not fond of the photobook's cover.

I realized the album name is "Remember you" and she looks like thinking of somebody in the covers. That made me like the covers even more.

By the way... There are so many people complaning about the covers but, have you seen Party Queen's covers? They are horrible. I prefer this elegant Ayu than the one almost naked and drunk under the fireplace.

Ohhh I love the covers!

I might be overthinking, but I have theories lol

taskinson aside (since that one's obvious), I'm sure VIBEES and either ray of truth or remember you are interludes. In that case, we have the following four sections in the album:

Quote:
01. Nonfiction
02. (NOT) Remember you
03. Dreamed a Dream
04. 23rd Monster
05. Summer Again

06. ray of truth
07. Remember you
08. オヒアの木
09. 春よ、来い

10. taskinson
11. MASK

12. VIBEES
13. Nonfiction (Yohanne Simon remix)
14. Just the way you are
If that's the case, I noticed another thing: each section seems to represent a season:

1. Summer (Summer Again)
2. Spring (Haru Yo Koi)
3. Winter (MASK was advertised as a winter song)
4. Autumn (by elimination)

Not only that, but the seasons are in the correct order, just... in reverse. She's turning back time to remember the past.

That being said, I can imagine (NOT) Remember you being an interlude too. But the title has similar vibes to (don't) Leave me alone or (miss)understood and I can see it being a Sunrise/Sunset kind of situation where the melodies are basically the same, but the arrangement and genres are different

Edit: I'll also add another thing I said on discord: i can see ray of truth sampling the "what you do believe" line in nonfiction

I don't know how you can be so sure that they are interludes. I like to think they're not, because the information specified 5 MORE SONGS.

The remix and taskinson were not included in that count. And I'm sure it wasn't a last-minute decision. If the rest were interludes, she would have said 7 more songs, including the remix and taskinson, if she left them out it's for a reason.

I'll be the one bringing hope.

She never said 5 full songs though, surely she used the word 曲, which basically just means tracks, and I don't think we know if the remix was part of that count.. Besides, these are usually estimates and are subject to change, I don't remember if she put that disclaimer there

Loved this theory! I wish the album has some kind of story.

I'm in love with the covers and literally everything. When I pre-ordered the TA version for a moment I wasn't sure if I made the right decision but this made all my doubts disappear. She looks amazing and to me, it's far from a simple magazine shoot. She's giving me some lost-in-thoughts vibes that really hit me. I also love that her dress in CD/DVD version feels like the extension of the darkness outside.

I really love the covers, they are elegants ! I preordered the CD Only, it's just for collection but I wanted to buy an Ayu's album since a long time (my last is Party Queen 10 years ago !!)

I'm sure taskinson is an interlude like all the others "task" in previous album.
But I hope it's the only one !

LOVEppears has WHATEVER (Dub's 1999 Remix). Dub Master X is a Japanese producer, so this would be the first time it has a remix by an overseas producer.

I think the question was isnít it the first time the same track appears twice on an album, both original mix and a remix (not is it the first time a remix appeared on a track period).

Oh! In that case OP is right, first time a remix is featured on the same disc.

I'm not going to say this is dissapointing, but it is underwhelming. I see maybe 2 (3 if lucky) new tracks on the whole album. And the covers look like they were just shot in her home conference room.
