^Yeah Mirrorcle World and Days/GREEN are few of the best covers ever

+1 (hey I bought both versions of Sunrise, and they're my least favorite covers, but I LOVE Sunrise.)

I think it's very likely.

Same, at the end of the day it's all about the music.

Yeah a good friend of mine got me the CD+DVD of the single when she was in Japan.

I didn't throw it in the toilet (well it's a present so I would never lol) but even if it wouldn't it still has Sunrise ~LOVE is ALL~ which is awesome and Sunset ~LOVE is ALL~ which is awesome -AT TIMES-. I also really like the summer songs Mash Up.
So yeah. Good single with bad covers, but the music is the judging element in buying for me (and it should be for most regarding music imo). You don't buy a book for its cover (well unless if it's really amazing and you want it), if you don't like what's inside then don't buy it.
But of course a single with good covers is even better, but still the covers shouldn't be the deciding factor and probably not even one of them.

And here comes the same old fight about the importance of the covers

To me, in the end the music is definitely most important. However, the covers are supposed to reflect the feeling of the music in 1 glance, it's what people see when they browse CD's in the stores, and it's the image they have in their head when they think about the single.

That's why, in my opinion, a good cover is very important. A bad one wouldn't ruin the single for me, but a good one will definitely boost my anticipation level a lot.

who would judge a CD based on its cover?

Because if you don't listen to the songs before it's the first thing that you see of the single. That's marketing.

BTW 'course that it's better if we got a good songs and bad covers than if we got good covers and bad songs!

well I get that, but I mean fans of a specific artist. If you absolutely love say Rihanna (and I have no clue why anyone would), and you bought her last album and loved it, but the new album has a really crappy cover so you decide to pass on it, that's stupid.

Of course the covers are important. It's artwork. Marketing.
I wanna be able to look at something nice. Especially when I won't be listening to the actual CD that much (iPod). Actually, I never buy Ayu's singles, except Days/GREEN and BLUE BIRD CD+DVD because the songs were really good AND the covers were amazing. The covers definitely are a deciding factor when it comes to singles. If they are absolutely stunning then they suck me in. Especially if the CD comes with a poster (like BLUE BIRD). I have two A BALLADS posters because that's my favorite CD artwork and the first poster I ordered came a bit crinkled on on end so I ordered a laminated one too. Lol.

I think that covers are relatively important, but I dont think an entire view of a CD should be thrown out because of them.

I wonder what the covers are going to be like; I'm curious now

A cover does indeed have impact, at least for me.
Take Sunrise/Sunset single. I thought the songs were OK, nothing new, but all right, nice summer songs. The cover was totally crappy, and it actually makes the whole single seem cheap, at least to me. With a classy cover, it would've risen a few notches on my scale at least... I might be a bit quirky, but covers are somewhat important to me... That's what I have to look at when the songs play in my iPod...lol

I guess credit cards have a certain "max amount" of money that you can pile up in "debts" on the card. You must have exceeded that amount, so I guess you should get it renewed.
Well, at least assuming it's the credit card that's the problem.
