With Ayu, familiarity is usually what you'll get, I feel. The surprises are typically reserved for albums.

The song is similar to songs from the albums: Made in Japan, A one and sixxxxxx. Nothing new and fresh.

Thank you so much for the links!
I just listened to it and I am quite happy with WORDS. It sounds like something that could be on Love Again. It is somewhat of a typical mid tempo Ayu ballad, but it is an Ayu ballad done so well.
Also, Ayu's vocals really impressed me. She sounds very comfortable singing this song.

I feel like she sounds a bit more fragile in this than she has in recent years.

Actually, I feel that Ayu has previously been an artist that has consistently surprised with singles (i.e. Bold & Delicious). Though I agree in recent years, she has definitely released expected singles. Regardless, I'm always happy to see her release something (even if it is too familiar)!

I don't think Bold & Delicious was really a good decision for her as a single. It may have prevented people from checking out (miss)understood IMO.

I've always found she fell into a certain pattern for a long while with spring/summer/fall-winter releases and only really had standouts on albums. Anything like B&D was out of the norm for her.

I wonder if this will find its way to an album after this alongside We are the QUEENS.

Oh definitely not, it's not a favourite of mine, but I think there is merit in experimenting in genre and sound, so I appreciate it for what it is. I like WORDS too, but she already has tracks in this vein and so it feels lost among them already? Who knows, it'll probably be on high rotation in my playlists anyway. Can't deny me some new Ayu.

I think it's hard to find a place for some Ayu tracks due to their 'sameness' at times but they usually do end up where they belong. The lyrics for this are probably the selling point. She brings up the ibasho again.

It's a nice song, but I do agree it's pretty typical. However it's not a normal single, it's just a song distributed for free at her concerts, so I don't even mind. And I do love her ballads, so I'm quite happy

All the new stuff from Colours was the same way too which was all kinds of crazy, lol. I wonder if she'll ever do that sort of thing again.

Well, her vocals sound pretty good.

It might seem like a "boring" release but to me it's a nicer song to hear than "We are the queens".

It's nothing revolutionary, but I like it a lot more than We are the Queens. Sure it sounds like something that would fit MADE IN JAPAN. I like the rock outlines <3
