^^ Yeah, pretty basic hairstyle. I noticed how thin her real hair is! It was even more obvious somehow when she was in the red dress.

I think it adds to the opulence of GREEN's performance. How shes dressed and act's suit's having a big entourage

The first two songs were a mess indeed... I'm really hoping the DVD editing will save those two.

Those certainly were not her worst vocals, but I'm surprised at some people saying it's her normal vocals and she always sounds like that. She did sound strained on this concert and her getting hoarse by the end of the concert just makes it more evident she was not on her best condition, she sounded so much better on last year's CDL. I feel that saying those are her "normal" vocals kinda brings her down, because she does sing better when she's more rested... or whatever caused her vocals not to be her best for this concert.

On the other hand, I like the simple hairstyles. I rather see her with a ponytail than some weirdly styled wigs or something.

^ Cool!

Watching this digest i think it's even more obvious that her vocals are bad (not in every songs, but most of them), i really hope she will get better because it's a shame when you compare it to her CDL 2014-2015/AT 2015 vocals

Praying the DVD editing saves her voice.

Someone mentioned that her heart didn't seem into this one. And I feel the same way. Something about this doesn't feel memorable or leave the impression that this is an ayumi hamasaki concert. But I think her last two CDLs before this certainly did. It's like it was missing those fine touches that make it her. Some things seemed a bit messy for ayu standards.

I understand though. Ayu has done two tours before this. And CDM was wonderful. So it's okay to me. I hope her schedule next near invovles rest and that she continues to improve her vocals.

I think she really needs to take some rest. Especially for her voice, but also for here creativity.
Maybe it sounds a bit harsh, but I think she needs to stop for a while and think. Take inspiration. Take singing classes, but not in classical classes : I'm sure there are singing coaches that can teach her to sing correctly while she's dancing, when she's in effort situations.
It would be a great improvement for her, and she will be able to bring us a magnifiscent show that won't need as much voice-editing as CDL 15-16.
And about creativity, maybe she needs to hire her staff overseas or try new ideas that actually WORKS (not a mish-mash of something new or fun like she did with CoLOURS... It wasn't a bad album musically, but the idea behind was a little rough, it would have deserved a bit more of reflexion and ingeniosity to arrange and present the things together). Working with new talents is actually a great idea, but that needs to be useful for HER in first place, not a kind of promotion for them.

Watched the broadcast yesterday and I wasn't really sold on it there were a lot of vocal struggles, at the end she wasn't even able to talk right anymore. There were parts that I liked like the ivy~love song segment or WARNING and also marionette but as some others said it doesnt seem memorable. Cirque de minuit really was an amazing CDL compared to this one and also generally so having these 2 following each other was almost a bit cruel. Hope she rests her voice now and comes back with cirque de minuit-ish awesome vocals.

I think its just she had a bit more on her late last year over her not having her heart in it. + her having a serious chest infection.
Future classics tv version of I am was worse, vocal wise than this whole tours vocals. I think the dvd will be fine

And her voice always goes like this when she over works. When TA tour was announced, everyone praised that but it cost her CDL vocals.
She just needs some rest
Example of her voice sounding as tired in her 10th anniversary period

Holy fuck, they REALLY butchered that Many Classic Moments live. I thought AHS had to be exaggerating but the truth is that they weren't being harsh enough! It sounds like they have three completely separate audio tracks playing - out of sync and in complete disharmony with one another. Terrible.

About her 10th anni. vocals - at least her voice had power then. I don't get that power in her recent lives anymore. I think she had to scale it back to prevent further damage. Which sucks cause now it just sounds dry AND weak.

Poor Ayu.

Her voice is still powerful. Do you want her to shout even more to prove that?

It has power but I don't feel it as wholeheartedly. I think it has to do with her trying to control it more. When she does her vibrato, it used to come from a much "deeper" place, like she pushed it from her diaphragm; now, she holds her vibrato in her throat, which often sounds dryer - not as "full" or "round".

For reference, I feel her voice is most powerful during performances like Microphone and Memorial address in AT10 ~Rock'n'Roll Circus~

I just listen to the GREEN of Premium CDL 2008-2009, and then watch the GREEN of Made in Tokyo... You'll know the difference if you listen/watch them...

PS: not complaining about her voice =)

Aww, Ayu looks really cute in this CDL, but yeah, her vocals sound pretty worn out... It kind of reminds me of her CDL in 2002-03 when she lost her voice, and you could really tell in Heartplace (I think that was the song at the time), it's a shame really. I remember how good she sounded during Power of Music, hopefully Ayu can rest a little and recover from the chest infection she's had
