Going by the sales of Moon (which has 4 new songs), I don't think we can dismiss the possibility so easily...

That's the case with most Japanese artists (even everyone else's favorite pop maestro/wunderkind/insert hyperfanatic label here Utada Hikaru), and I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. Japanese pop music is very much a singles industry, unlike in the West. That's why the singles come out before the album.

I agree there tend to be filler problems for some japanese albums. I just don't feel the connection Guilty's and Secret's songs have compared to say Rainbow or My Story. It's kinda eclectic sounding like Duty. And I think many people were expecting kingdom to sell better than it did (it beat guilty though XP). But looking at the oricon charts, i say maybe ayu is not losing as much steam as i thought.

Uh, I hope GUILTY stays in Top 10. That would be awesome. :3 But anyways, I like those positions. They aren't bad at all. Quite good actually.

^ Ehhh, you think so? Kingdom is so lackluster to me . The only song that even stands out is BUT.

B'z ultra best sold more than guilty combined in it's first week and it looks like bump of chicken or green can outsell guilty too so it looks like guilty will not even make top 10. But i really feel guilty doesn't deserve the top 10 status, like i wouldn't be recommending it to a friend who doesn't know ayu. Hope her next album is more inspiring.
