She looks gorgeous

I'm very excited about "November," and "Sending Mail" because a lot of fans also sent her mail too! So Maybe either song will be about the fan relationship. Soooo excited!! And we were there

No, I agree. "sending mail"? Seriously?

And the covers, she's so gorgeous. But they're so boring lol But hey, I'm not complaining because she has three and none of them are fugly or wtf and they'll still be pretty CDs.

The text is lol. If they wanted it out of the way, they should just not even include it, or make it really small going along the bottom or something.

Everything is just kinda...typical...not of her, but of...pop lol

The only song that I'm like really curious about from the titles, is Aria.

Totally love it ^^ Except the CD+DVD cover...
Remember that the USB version is LP size !! =P A huge beautiful cover ! Yep !

And about the tracklist, i fear "Thank U" which is gonna be a cheesy one for sure XD
But i love the titles "insomnia" and "Aria", yeah especially "Aria"

But... WTF ?! track 12. overture ???
How can an overture be on 12th position ?

CD+DVD versions is just horrible, IMO I don't like it. She looks REALLY weird.

But the CD version is lovely! Her smile is so cute...!!

And, I don't know, but I have the feeling that sending mail, insomnia & overture will be the interludes...

I'm obviously missing what people are finding horrible about any of these covers, because she looks perfectly normal to me in all of them. But Ayu fans are never satisfied with anything...of course.

I love the tracklist. Covers are nice, but just that, nice. Kinda look like Moon/Blossom.

Love the CD only cover The tracklist is so interesting! I'm especially looking forward to "Like a doll"...if it's like Marionette I'm going to die!! And "insomnia" sounds cool too~ "Thank U" sounds like a ballad, for some reason...but I'm probably wrong, lol I'll still have to get used to "sending mail," just doesn't sound right XD

insomnia is SO fitting to ayu. maybe she wrote it while she was up all night lol. I can imagine it being a dark rock track.

^ i hope only overture and sending mail will be interludes. overture is 100% interlude and sending mail and Thank U are the only titles I don't like... but Thank U is a song for 100%.

I hope Aria and insomnia are songs, cause this title means "something epic" but Aria sounds like an interlude though :<

Oh, and I don't like November. It could be an interlude too, but in that position i don't think so. But it can be, i hate this title. I don't like any title with month or day in it.

I like title Like a doll but it can be cheesy, i am imagining something like Marionette but in the end it could be a chessy-medium pop. I hope "Love song" will surprise me being not-a-ballad. and i like "do it again" title.

Covers are okay, her smile looks gorgeous, the usb ver is pretty too~ The only thing i don't like it's that these covers are SO FASHION styled. The pink-peachy light is SO trendy right now. I just don't like the "trendy" stuff...


i also don't like cause my photoshop colorings look ugly on that photos (XD)
but still, she looks gorgeous when she is smiling ^^

^ yeah! I'm pretty sure ayu used the same photographer that did most of those photos you posted (Kazutaka Nakamura, same one who did the MOON/blossom covers too). I love his style of photography.

Track listing seems... totally different from Rock'n'Roll Circus. To be honest I didn't expect anything like this :p Oh well I hope it's good though. I'm pretty positive since I loved two out of three singles very much.

And one thing is sure. If Aria is an interlude, I'll cry my heart out. Title sounds like it could be an interlude to me and I really hope it isn't because it would be pretty epic if it was a full song. But when I wished montage was a full song it was a interlude. Hopefully it's not the same thing now lol.

Those covers... I really couldn't stand to watch MOON/blossom covers and it annoys me quite a lot to notice that these look the same. :/ Of course they're nice in their own way but right now they bother me a lot. :p

Oh well, I still wait for this album with no negative thoughts yet. Music is the most important thing, not the cover.

Ayu is completely unpredictable so I'm not sure how these songs will sound but if I had to guess based on flow I'd say Love song is mid-tempo, I don't think it will be too soft or too hard because it's right before crossroad and MOON neither of which are too soft or hard. sending mail is definitely an interlude to transition from MOON to Last angel. I'm assuming insomnia is probably similar to LA in the respect that it's dark and upbeat; Like a doll could possibly be upbeat. I hope Aria is not an interlude but it seems most likely since there is possibly a transition to blossom... Thank U being right before Sweet Season makes me think it's similar. If do it again is a dance song like some suggest, what would November sound like? I'm thinking November is a nostalgic song if it's about us fans (or Mannie ). But only time will tell...

I actually love the simplicity of the covers. It's like a breath of fresh air and almost evokes tranquility. I was not a fan of her previous album covers that's for damn sure so I'm glad to see these instead.

The song titles seem fine in my book. I don't understand why folks expect song titles to have some profound meaning or sophisticated wording. Simplicity never killed anyone.

I really love the tracklist, to me it's really creative.

For me i think sending mail, Aria and overture will me the interludes.

sending mail - rocky/techno

Aira - poppy/happy

overture - slow/orchestra

I like the covers too, very nature, but the cd-dvd isn't my favorite. She makes that face way too often, that glazed over look. I think this album is gonna have a pretty laid back/happy feel to it though.
