The melody of crossroad hasn't caught me yet, but I have a feeling that the HQ arrangement is going to be really cool.

thats what i'm hoping for.

i could barely hear the instruments at all in the preview so it was hard to judge.

i'm still sad though about the lack of a beat.

The beat still there, and we hear a LQ version... so it was muffled.

The bad thing about LQ previews is that when we hear it we NEED to hear it in a better quality...

i hope so. i listened to it on my iphone, so that may have not helped much.

i really hope you're right though. the beat is what had me most excited!

I don't need to hear it in better quality to know I don't like it. It's the melody that I hate and the melody will sound the same no matter what quality. Even if the arrangement of the song is epic, the awful composition... is awul.

i just listened again on my laptop and i do hear the beat a little bit here and there, but now i kind of feel like this song is a litle boring. it just seems to drag on and on and be kind of blah for me.

i hope i feel differently when i hear the full song in HQ. it makes me worry because neither Moon nor Blossom has grown on me that much yet and so i was hoping the next single would blow me away.

I don't like forming opinions until I hear an actual CD rip. People always change their opinions anyway...

they seem to have lowered the tempo of crossroad x_x...

I doubt any of the songs in this project will be uptempo :l

i'm guilty of that, but at least i recognize it, haha. my opinions change all the time on ayumi songs. i didn't like microphone very much at first, and i thought sexy little things sounded terrible...but now i just love both.

i'm sure my opinion will change after i hear the HQ version and if it doesn't it might still change after hearing it a few times.

i hope they won't all be downtempo! i really need something different. i was hoping for some dancey songs or something from TK.

I hope this isn't the crappy quality playing tricks with me....cause it sounds like one of those epic, oriental ballads and I really hope it is.

Thank you for the preview!

Sounds better than the short one. Definitely.

Yet I can't really judge it. Looking forward to hearing it full.


And I don't know how people can judge her vocals... I just can hear some sort of screams. Something not pleasant at all! Can't say if she sounds good or bad

@Polyrhythm: Oh god! Don't get up my hopes like that! lol

Honestly, I can't make much of anything from this song from the rip. It sounds kinda nice... I *think* I like the chorus though... if it is the chorus.... XD

From the new preview, to me the song sounds like GREEN pt 2 or maybe BALLAD pt 2.

Sounds exactly like I expected. Very old-school and typical. But those aren't bad things to me as long as it's good and it feel it is so far. I ADORE the verses.

um i dunno... i'm not really caught on it yet... but we'll see when the single comes out.

BTW I found this, so you can make some sort of "view" of what the clear melody is from the voice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vc7nRpFFMQ
