The only thing I dislike in this album is its size. I love the songs, I love Ayu's 'generic' ballads, I love W and Words might become one of my favorite Ayu's songs ever. By the way, someone posteed somewhere there's an announcement coming on 8/13. Any idea what it might be?

The announcement is here:
https://twitter.com/AWA_official/sta...21329852837888
Different online translators say about the last question: "What? It may happen again in AWA to 8/13!? / Will it happen again on AWA on August 13?"
Maybe somebody who speaks Japanese could help.

Her voice sounds different in all five songs.

We are the QUEENS - I like this song. I enjoy her typical gaming/anime songs. I always love hearing her darker voice.

aeternal - The "drum" sounds sooo cheap. I actually like how raw her voice sounds here.

WORDS - I don't feel anything special for this song, but I enjoy her soft vocals.

W - I usually love rock songs, but I don't think this one will be a favourite.

The way I am - I like the chorus, but I can't stand her voice in this song. She tried too much to sound cute. I really hope she won't use her cutesy/chipmunk voice when singing this live during the tour. She sang this with her regular voice at the LINE/Instagram live session though.

Overall
There's no song I dislike, but there's no song I really love. I think this is the first time I've listened through an Ayu album without feeling anything special...

Well, whatever it is --- it makes me curious!
I kinda love it. I am all about Ayu since July, and I am looking forward to all upcoming announcements, performances, festivals and tours.

About the album; I am surprised, because I was totally upset about just having 3 new songs; but the album sounds really good. If there is one thing I could complain about is how I don't like the backing vocals in aetarnal. Especially in the verses, when they repeat Ayu. It sounds so robotic.

But I am totally loving The way I am (definetely my favourite on this album) and yesss also aetarnal. Also I am back into We are the QUEENS and WORDS and I am happy I could buy now a release where the two songs are included and fit well in the concept. The only song I have to get into is W. I like the arrangement, but somehow it doesn't grab me like WARNING or 1 LOVE did (it reminds me of these songs). I am sure I will like it over time.

I am really torn if I should buy the release or not. I will wait foe a while, because I can't trust Ayu. I am a bit anxious she will release a full album including these 5 songs. Probably not... but it is Ayu. You never know.

Bit random but how do you guys pronounce aeternal? I say it like 'eternal' but it makes no sense somehow considering the other songs start with a w.

Yes, that's basically it. It says "Eh? On 08/13 on AWA something may happen again!?"

"You think this is everything?
Uh- wow uh- wow
Sorry, but this is merely a slice, you know?
Uh- wow uh- wow"

She maybe tried to let us know something with these lyrics

^More music as in new music? Before the official release of TROUBLE? People would just complain why it isn't on TROUBLE.

It is something you can cause, or something you can be, something others can case for you, or something you can find yourself in. Maybe you need help, or maybe you need to be stopped."
lol I said it before, but she RELI needs to communicate herself better. Things like "You're TA, so you'll understand" just don't cut it.

Another "I said it before", but I would've really liked songs titled Colours and TROUBLE. ;_; Will we ever get title tracks back?

If she starts explaining her concepts there will be no more room for subjetivity and people giving their own interpretation.

I don't know about her japanese fandom, but a good part of her western fandom it's a little lazy about taking their own conclusions about her work.

For the AWA surprise, two possibilities only :
- exclusive promotion video
- audio version of the concerts (provided on the album DVD)

For new tracks, no way, we'll have to wait. Pretty sure of it

I wonder how much it would cost to commission DJ's. I really liked the Love & Again kind of tracklists. I mean, if they are going with the album thing I'd love for Ayu to fill the entire disc up with a tracklist like:

1. We are the QUEENS
2. æternal
3. WORDS
4. W
5. The way I am
6. FLOWER -Remix-
7. Mad World -Acoustic Orchestra-
8. Winter Diary -Remix-
9. Poker Face -20th Anniversary version-
10. The way I am -Live Acapella-
11. We are the QUEENS -instrumental-
12. æternal -instrumental-
13. WORDS -instrumental-
14. W -instrumental-
15. The way I am -instrumental-

I miss the good old days where Ayu filled her singles and stuff full to the brim.

I hope it's 5 more songs! I mean... the tracklist hasn't been posted anywhere officially yet. Not in her official website, nor in any online store. Also, the "album" is listed as "single" in Spotify. I don't know in other streaming platforms.

I loved the mini album (it will always be a mini for me), WatQ is a jam for me, so I'm glad to finally have it on spotify, and really works as an opener track.

aeternal is very chill, uplifting, but there is something dark about it, bittersweet.

WORDS is a cute song to listen, but is forgettable to me, though it has powerfull lyrics. Is my least favorite.

W is just so gooooood, I love rock ayu, and this one is so great, "in-yourface", fierce, sexy, like "she's to busy to worry" kinda felling, I LOVE IT. It deserves a PV, c'mon ayu!

The way I am is so beautiful, emotional and uplifting, is typical-ayu in the best way.


In general, I really like this release, but it gives a "please ayu, gimme more" vibes. I hope for more music soon, but for now gonna have TROUBLE on repeat!
