I'm sorry but this album is a huge disappointment, and my expectations were already super low.

I can see myself tolerating the last track, but for that kind of feeling there are other works in her discography I'd turn to to satisfy my craving.

W is kind of all over the place. I really dislike how the 2nd bar (2nd phrase of lyrics) of the chorus already feels resolute. Usually the first half of the chorus of her tracks resolves itself on the 4th bar. I'm not sure if I'm describing it correctly, but there seems to be no "tension" in the chorus after the 2nd phrase already. I prefer to be on the edge of my seat throughout the entirety of the chorus. I listened to is this LOVE? immediately following this track, and W can not stand a chance to it, or other rock staples.

Regarding the other two new tracks, I can't stomach her voice in those kind of arrangements any longer. It's very "rough" but the arrangement is "sparkly" "glittery" "dreamy" "soft," which when combined just sounds so jarring. It is more apparent in aeternal.

I said it for MinJapan and I'll say it again; at this point her voice with all it's flaws really only sounds "at home" in rock arrangements for me (although Shape of love sounded splendid). In rock songs she really "pushes" it out, and she sounds committed. I need that sense of "commitment" from her - I don't feel get that sense of "commitment" to the track in songs like aeternal.

I wouldn't get my hopes up, since we can clearly see the tracklist on the pics of both versions of the box set and it's the same

Hm. I'm not mad at the new songs at all. I actually love the way she sounds in them. I like the slight roughness in her vocals, gives more depth. Plus she sounds so natural, clear and comfortable.

Not a bad job, AYU. Well done!

I wish we had more.

W is something new and different from her. I really like it . I wish the entire album was done in that way. Nice songs, but I'm not a big fan of her vocals on this album.

I really love rock ayumi. And I enjoy the arrangement of W and the verses a lot. But the chorus really loses me. Like I find the verses more interesting, which is rare. Like I feel that a more engaging chorus could have taken that song to the next level really. I'll still be listening to this track since I enjoy it a lot but I just have that sad feeling that it could have been more.

Also like, Zeke said, this kind of rock track really suits her voice these days more than others. So, personally, I would love to hear more (also because I love rock ayu). But it all depends on what she feels like.
