I am so glad I haven't listened to the whole album yet because I'm one of the ones who misunderstood how many songs would be on the album

I'm definitely looking forward to the PVs too. I want the CD+Bluray.

oh, my god.... the dude, Darkchild...he did MJ's Xscape didn't he..... no wonder I love Angel so much, because i absolutelly love Xscape. Man I even have those songs one after an other on my playlist lol Man i am slow...lol But then i get a question... the arrangement for Xscape is so ritch and full of sounds, why didn't he do more with Angel? That song would have sounded even more amazing with strings and all that fancy jazz even with keeping the electro stuff in just changing up a bit on some parts to make it more ineteresting.

The tracks he did on MJ's "Invincible" were all like that as well. Lush, rich arrangements. Heavy bass.

"Angel" seems more minimalist than a lot of his work. I think he knew with Ayu to not go the "urban" route.

So the album really has leaked more than a month in advance.
I give props to Ayu for wanting to get out her material to the fans but a month leak is still... unsettling?

I'm still a bit excited to see the videos, covers, etc though

^^it is rather inetresting to see how producers actually can get into someones head and do what the actual artist would want exactly. Because Angel to me sounds very Ayu, while Xscape sounds totally Michael. I'm a bit mindblown here xD

Angel is a bit on a different path, so i guess that's why, but now when i think of/listen to it closelly it still does have tiny sounds that you cannot really hear clearly but they blend in very seamlesly into the overall arangement. *blinks*

It's probable that Angel/Terminal are sort of intentionally minimal for the most part. The songs feel like siblings.

I assume because of the showcase. So people could know the songs still a bit. Just in case not everyone wants to have the new songs presented at the showcase. I think the early leak + the fact that she's showing new songs before the release is the reason the showcase is more expensive.

Idk, that's then only way I can make sense of it because it's so unlike avex

I really wanna know what that room with the mannequin is for now,

Only 10 tracks? It almost feels like a mini-album

I've left a couple of songs too. I knew that these were the new songs but I was kind of hoping for a couple more songs and some interludes. I'm not disappointed as such because I knew that was unlikely but I just thought it would be cool- using the showcase to sort of do singles (the free cds) and then add a few more tracks to the album as a bonus/surprise.
I wonder if this will become the norm now?

I don't like it

I already did my own track list since we had all the songs but not the order I had to figure out the best way for me to place all these songs (plus other 2):

01. Feel the love
02. Merry-go-round
03. Lelio
04. Terminal
05. XOXO
06. My Way
07. What is forever love
08. Angel
09. NOW & 4EVA
10. Hello new me
11. Pray
12. You & Me

This album is the final proof that ayu does own the directions of her career at this point. Colours just has nothing to do with the usual Japanese Music Industry.

I have the feeling that the Angel's PV is similar to Missing's one !
The sky, the flying scene ...
