here we go again...

the tracklist is up on iTunes/apple music. it's the final one. we already have the bundle with the partial tracklist appearing. that's it, 5 songs.

also, Spotify puts EPs and Singles in the same section. TROUBLE is an EP. they also have a lot of her maxi-singles under the Albums section, and they're not albums, just singles with more tracks than normal, that's why they list them as albums. TROUBLE has only 5 tracks, so they will throw it under Singles and EPs.

The track list was in the images of the box sets, though

I don’t think I have ever felt this vicariously embarrassed. This might be her coup de grâce, her equivalent to Michael Jackson’s last EP.

I give it two “releases” from now and Ayu will be selling four-figures in copies, then forced to unceremoniously retire or release digitals exclusively, an apropos mirror of the quality and disrespect of this “album”.

Poor flopped Ayu, touring 20 years into her career and charting on the digital charts without releasing anything.

If there's anything you should be embarrassing about it's this post.

I get the concept, and I like it. I just wish she had fleshed it out a bit more with at least one Pv. But sometimes I wonder what kind of budget she is using when they used relatively very cheap methods to promote the album at first. I'm surprised we got a decent cm, and then that itself caused controversy in not the way I think it was intended. I don't really get what avex is doing either since max supposedly was doing something. The way they handle their artists is very telling more and more over the years and ayu is no exception really.

Even though I musically think this mini is better than sixxxxxx and not too far away from Five, for me, those aren't the highest standards anyway. To be fair, my standards for ayu are very high and I do love 4 of the album songs. I just feel like I could enjoy them so much more and have them be on par with past music if the parts that were suffering (like chorus in W, vocals in æternal) were improved.

I would kind of like to know what's on her mind outside of song lyrics honestly.

this album is similar to sixxxxxx for me (too much 'ballady filler' content while short album should have diversity --- i mean, FIVE, come on?, black&whiteish basic covers -i mean she is beautiful as always but we have the same covers for like 4 albums now lol, she even have almost same haircut on those since A ONE) but even sixxxxxx didn't had an "outstanding" leading track - the PV's made me hype more and those PV's was pretty good - they made the job.

I find sixxxxxx to be her best mini album together with Memorial address. I also find TROUBLE to be better than FIVE, and I love FIVE.

After listening to all her mini-albums (not you, LOVE and again) from the recent to Memorial address:

Memorial address > FIVE = TROUBLE (I dislike "Why...", but the other tracks are really good for me) > sixxxxxx.

The details of arrangement of TROUBLE and the quality of the sound overall are splendid, even in the 'generic' tracks.

P.S.: now I appreciate We are the KHALEESIS.

I find FIVE so boring so for me it is

Memorial address > TROUBLE =/= sixxxxxx > FIVE

TROUBLE hasn't sunk in yet to determine a solid 2nd or 3rth place.

Honestly, this album is bad. aeternal is an uninspired track that she's done 50 times and each one better than this. The way I am has a nice melody but is again ruined by the bland and bad arrangement with the stereotypical "emotional" piano, chimes, and flat generic drums.

W - now that's a track. Something full of life and interesting. I missed this Ayu, and the entire album should have had this energy, even the ballads.

Overall, this safe sound she continues to go for does nothing for her discography at all for me personally, and it's tiring to listen to entire bodies of work just to find one good track. I think I will stop checking for new releases from her for good and just continue to enjoy all of her material up to Colours (with the occasional tracks from AO and MIJ)

FIVE has BRILLANTE on that mini album and for that reason alone FIVE >>>>>>>>> the rest.

Anyway, just got done listening to TROUBLE. It's not... bad. It's not good either. It's just... there. The fact that we're probably going to wait a while again until a new album (or whatever the fuck she's planning these days) and THIS is what we're left with until then is... unfortunate.
