Hmmmmm......
The covers are okay, not a big fan of them but don't hate them either. They a bit generic JPop to me but overall okay.
The text is a LOT better than MOON/blossom though.

SEVEN DAYS WAR sounds like an awesome name. Quite strange for Ayu to a cover, but I can see Ayu singing this, it seems like her type of song. I just hope the composition gets an update.

Looking forward to remixes and PVs!

Nothing good is coming from this!

Agreed. the covers are really ****
I love MOON as a single and the covers. I dont have interest with this single.
Looking forward for L.

My Japanese friend says it's a cover of the TM Revolution song, as I had him read the announcement on Ayu's site.

It's TM Network.

I thought that TM Revolution had something to do with it at first for some reason, but TM in TM Network is Time Machine rather than Takanori Makes.

i'm 100% sure that crossroad will get number one position, no doubt about it...why?

1. all ayu crazy fans out there will buy this, to make sure that she will get the number one position streak...
2. the PV is so special and there is JJ on it, i believe THSK fans, will buy it...not much, but a least will give small contribution to the sales...
3. she promote it this time, at least it will help too...

WOW The only apocalypse going on is the one in your head. The single isn't out yet, we've barely heared crossroad, we're yet to see the PV and get the lyrics translated, let alone hear the cover song. Who said these were to be the better singles? lol I don't recall they announced them as "the best singles ever". She had worse covers and certainly had worse songs. It's one thing not to like a product once you've actually had a taste of it, but since you haven't, you're making a drama out of nothing and that goes for everyone else complaining about her lips - don't you people think it's lame how you're complaining over it over and over again the last few years when nothing is going to change..STFU!

Wow, the lyrics for SEVEN DAYS WAR are intense! After giving it a listen, I actually think that it could turn out to be pretty epic and I'm feeling a bit more optimistic about this single as a whole. I'm especially interested in seeing the blossom PV, because I was always curious about how she would visually interpret that song (and, with the fact that the PV was held until this single instead of being put with MOON, plus Jaejoong being in it...let's just say my curiosity is peaked)

+1

Just listened to SDW.... this is TOTALLY a song Ayu could rock out. I have very good vibes about her version of this song.

omg I know. Any thought that people had about other people possibly getting number one has been officially expunged with Jaejoong's arrival.

Somewhere in Japan, there are a bunch of Avex stockholders that are very happy lol

I saw the covers around the forum in the form for avatars and sigs. I thought they were from a magazine They are very MAC (cosmetics company). If the background was a little more appealing I would love the covers.

About the background, I like it like that because if it was something with patterns and stuff the photos would be too charged/heavy/noisy to the eye?? if that makes any sense lol

Makes perfect since. I think they're perfect just the way they are. Must be her new creative team!

The thing I find strange about them is that they don't really fit with crossroad...I wonder if it has something to do with the Pv?

well I usually love love this type of gray background and shoot, but I just feel like the concept could have of been quite epic for this single...and instead, she did something really...generic of other people.

They're great shots though. I really love the one in the paper.
