I've got a question about the TA exclusive that is up on cdjapan
(https://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEODAI-149471) that I hope someone can answer.

Will I be asked for TA membership info if I order the item or is it available to everyone? I've ordered the cd only but I would love to order the exclusive if I can.

I don't think you'll get the mock CD though since it's mu-mo shop version only sadly...

After writing that superlong post I noticed the genius behind MASK. It seems some don't like that it doesn't have a climax, but I think that's the point; the lyrics don't have a resolution, so neither does the song.
The first refrain is about pretending to have overcome pain, but actually only masking the scars with new wounds, in the second she asks questions about how long she'll be a specific way or since when she's become a specific way, to then end the song by singing that she's again going to mask wounds with wounds. Usually you'd think there'd be a strong forward-looking message, a strong resolve to change things, but the way the song just fizzles out so to speak reflects admitting that masking scars with new wounds will continue, admitting weakness in a way. I also like how the title evokes the meaning of a mask you wear, but mask also has the meaning of covering something.

Oy, just listened to (NOT) remember you... knowingly I am late to the party.

Honestly, I was a bit thrown off when I heard her swearing. Not that I am against it or dislike it, but I had never hear her it done before ("You're full of s-" from Nonfiction is pretty mellow imo, and even then I giggled) so she is still able to surprise me and I like that.

But maybe I made the mistake to pick the worst timing to listen to this song. You see, I came from a very dreamy trancy ambience kinda music, because I did some yoga. Totally chilled out, I opened Spotify and got the new song notification. And because I have a soft spot for Ayu, I immediately needed to hear it.
Well, it is a mess. The room feels so much smaller and I really needed to turn the volume down. Really, it was not a good experience.

But oops my bad! I am giving it another turn right now. I am sure I will change my mind.

I really like the flow this album has so far. I think songs that are released already fits really well together. I was afraid of this album being just a random collection of songs but this is really good so far.

I really like (NOT) Remember me as well, it's been stuck in my head since it's release. It could fit even in older releases like Secret. It has that classical ayu-sound that only she can convey I'm so excited to hear the rest of the unreleased songs

You did! hahaha At first I didn't like the song because of how loud it was, but as I got used to it and listened to it in better quality I ended up liking it a lot. It's hard to find its shape and structure.

I totally agree with you about the flow. The album so far seems very solid and cohesive, and every song works very well together.

Nonfiction is still so far my personal favourite. I like that the album starts so energetically and with so strong, fierce and powerful first couple of songs. I even like Summer Again now although at first it was a bit difficult song for me. But it's bright, happy and just makes you want to dance so I really have started to like it.

(NOT) Remember me is interesting. I like the energy and power in this one too but I think the mixing could be better. The song is a bit of a mess to be honest, but it's still a good song.

It's a strong album for sure. I also look forward to hearing the rest.

I feel like the messiness of (NOT) is a bit intentional, she kinda did this with some of the NEXT LEVEL tracks too where they were pretty busy [and Yuta/CMJK arranged there]... but I guess I'd take that over a barebones arrange.

(NOT) Remember you
Definitely got NEXT LEVEL from it, which I loved (my first real Ayu album)
Busy yet polished

Really looking forward to the rest of the album
Still loving Summer Again but trying not to listen to it too much so the song and album sound as fresh as possible when I receive it

Covers I love too, saw the facebook post during work hours and couldn't look away from my phone
Been a long time since we've had album covers to admire before release

(NOT) Remember you is so personal song. Ayu probably will not perform it again, like untitled ~for her~

so only 2 interludes in the end, I guess when TA told us the album was 12 songs they were just not counting the interludes (but included the remix)

Hajime Kato is my new religion hahaha
I think he's updating Ayu's sound, pushing her to try different paths compared to previous releases.
