I honestly am so pleased with this album. There's not a single song I skip over!!
Well.... I can see Thank U being that song possibly in the future, only because I like those inspirational songs when I'm in a good mood... haha

Will post my review on the review thread shortly.

Yeah, I love "Thank U" SO much! the music in that song is gorgeous and I've had the "lalala"'s stuck in my head all day.

agreed! there is so much going on in all of the songs, it's hard for me to get bored. I think this album is going to have a lot of replay value for me.

I've printed out all of the lyric translations and am going to listen to the whole album while reading along. Should be interesting!

THIS is one of the comments that has made me very intrigued and tempted to listen to the album. I love music that has this intricacy.
somehow I only get this with Electro..
so I really wanna hear what there is in this album MUSIC-wise. esp in a Pop album

I want to say that this album reminds me of some American/British/etc albums as far as music quality goes. It's hard to put into words, but yea, I usually don't want to "pick apart" a Japanese album, although Gackt and X Japan are exceptions. This music quality and style plus the lyrics...the strings...synth...

(Btw, I wonder what Ayu thinks of us tweeting her about listening to the album when it doesn't officially release until next Wednesday? )

Yea, I'm sure Avex lets her know, but it still makes me giggle. XD It's an excellent way to get free advertising.

yeah I saw those tweets she replied to about the album and I was thinking how people probably shouldn't comment on that yet but with her replies it doesn't really seem like she minds.

Yep, it's so emotional and gorgeous, it's also really different sounding for an ayu ballad, she really has no other ballad that sounds similar to this imo.

It's so good! It's like my fav. The melody is good and it has this slight haunting emotion to it at certain parts. I love it.
Worst song is Like a doll. Hello snoozeville. So boring during the chorus especially. (I don't hate it but it's def. my least fav of the new tracks. Well, actually Love song probably is. Boring too.)

I didn't expect anything, or know what to expect. I was so 50/50 about the singles, I was pretty neutral towards RnRC too.

So when I listened to this album... just woah. Tie between Love Song, November and sending mail for my favourite new track. I think crossroad will forever be my favourite song on the album haha

As someone said, the songs feel really rich. The music is just so good and has so many elements in every single song. It's really hard to get bored of anything, because each time I listen I notice new songs and feel myself getting deeper and deeper into the song.

I haven't gotten over Love Song to pay much attention to the rest of the album. 43 plays for Love Song and still going.
