[mini album]
Memorial address - 4 new songs
LOVE - 3 new songs
again - 4 new songs
FIVE - 5 new songs

[album]
sixxxxxx - 6 new songs
TROUBLE - 5 new songs


They're probably stepping on the border while meeting Oricon's limit of [5 songs = album] rule. FIVE could've also been named as an album, but probably the team didn't dare play such a trick back at that time.

It would be pretty funny if there was a whole album in there as a 'hidden track' after track #5.

Don't set my expectations too high!

I don't really like WATQ and WORDS, they are ok, but I don't really want to listen to them. Both demos also nothing intersting. I hope at least last track will be good surprise as "Anything for you" was.

Unlike sixxxxxx with the S titles, the Ws seem random but if they can mean "Double" I was just thinking that they could be a hint to that, lol.

Knowing Ayu and avex these days, it'll probably be like what was done with Suzuki Ami's Infinity Eighteen Vol.1. Just a hidden track at the end of snippets from an all-new project coming soon... And then it turns out to be Kidz Bop Sings... Hamasaki Ayumi - You&Me plus Trance, Dance, Tradance, Trap, Hip Hop, Clip Clop, Chill, Psybient, Ambient versions, an Orchestral Version, a Classical Version, the Instrumental Version, an Instrumental of the Orchestral Version, and Commentary tracks for each one where Ayu whispers parts of a subliminal message we all end up losing a week of our life trying to dissect before we realize it reads "L0V3 4G41N."

I wonder if Ayu is actually seeing double the number of tracks on this album than she actually put on? Maybe she's like, "Yes, that's 10." And this is the first time she's hearing that it's actually five songs.

As for my thoughts, I love the covers. F.I.N.A.L.L.Y. Thank God she's still got it image-wise. I'd give anything for the Max Mat. cover to have been something she did for Party Queen. This looks more authentic to the "lonely/controlled queen/product of avex" protest.

The tracklist. I don't know what to say. I think I'm more so concerned about the production and singing. I heard a live of Ayu from this year and was very surprised at her vocal strength. Her shows are still at least somewhat interesting. But it's the lack of body/soul/detailed production and real investment in the experience of each song that will make or break this for me. She scored on the imagery. Please, God, have her score on these songs.

sixxxxxx and TROUBLE seem to both be promoted as 'albums' by them. But when categorized elsewhere, they'll just be EPs too.
They called sixxxxxx a mini album in their initial announcement, and in one more article (I can try to find them again later if you want), but after that they called it "new album"

Why would the price even matter if it's a theoretical surprise?

OH NO . If one of the five songs is interlude then maybe reading poetry would make sense as interlude.

^ but then there's no place for the second mysterious track that she also sang at the concert unless it's a hidden song

^ 3 weeks before release? I think it's too late for any changes.

I can imagine how this album was created.

Ayu: "Ok, with this we have 5 songs. We need at least the double of that amount."
Max: "yeah, otherwise we will get in trouble"
Ayu: "That's genius!! Let's get in TROUBLE"

What if every song has actually a second hidden track like independent+? That would be consistent with the Double concept. lol Do we know the total amount of the minutes of the whole album? But well... Ok, let's not get expectation that high...

I just read that her new "album" will only have five songs. I was hoping for a song blowout after she was talking so much about recording and since it has been a little more than two years since MIJ. I guess I hyped myself up too much (or got hyped up too much). ;o;
Well, I will get it anyway. No PVs is actually a good thing, because it means it will be cheaper. Though I can definately see why some people won't buy it.

The limited edition cover is just no. Not sexy, not sensual, not flirty playful - just unnecessary.

I think guys you are waiting for way to much about this release...
I can be wrong but I'm sure there is no hidden track or surprise. Just 3 new songs and 2 old (boring) song.

EDIT: That being said, What is possible is that another mini album with 5 tracks will be released later. It would be cool.
