I dunno what would seem different. Short PVs?? The theme?
Today, of course, would be even nicer !
I don't know, it may come from me, but I've had the impression that nothing happened the same way as for the previous albums !

Bad comparison. Koda Kumi is supporting by singing covers since some time (Can We Go Back, Physical thing). Her cover albus is weak and they released it ONLY because they have to "celebrate" her 10th anniversary somehow but they couldn't release another BEST compilation because they already did it (at the beginning of this year).


If they make covers they aren't artists but trying just earn on fans of succesful performers who did those songs originally.
There is a difference between basing your whole career on covers and recording one cover album after you've already had 10+ studio albums of your own and sold millions of cds? Also Can We Go Back and Physical Thing could hardly be labeled as covers, because they were most likely bought from their producers at the same time/even before the "originals" were recorded the same way Tohoshinki and Sarah Connor bought the rights to "Under your skin". It's really a common thing in the music industry. Besides random European singers are hardly popular anywhere else but in their respective countries, so you could hardly say she is trying to appeal to their fans, when they actually don't have any fans in Japan. Now it's different when you're covering older Japanese songs, especially when they are so old that the people who used to listen to them will still hardly care about you. So no matter how you look at it, your story doesn't hold water. Especially that only a selected few artists like Ken Hirai, JUJU and Hitomi Shimatani had success with covers, some were either very popular even before and some were forgotten quickly, while both Ayu and Ku are famous for their own songs, no one is going to look down on them because they've made a cover album.

THANK YOU!




And just a side note, Kumi's cover album was actually really good! Made me fall madly in love with her again. I encourage everyone to give it a listen!

I don't wanna waste all of my efforts to resist to previews and short versions, now .
Although it's incredibily hard, it's quite funny to wait for the release lol.

Cool short edits, but they're such teasers!

Also, Ayu's face looks kinda scary when she looks directly at the camera in Last angel's PV, lol.

I have a lot to study right NOW. Shows you what my priorities really are. I'm gonna be up all night again.

By the way, Michan, I love the coloring/background effects on your avatar & sig. I think the actual covers would look so much better that way.

I feel like the kumi fans are defending ayu doing a cover album because kumi did one.

anyway...the PVs are OK. I hold such contempt for Avex anymore and their stupid marketing tactics.

Kumi did not invent cover albums. They have been around for years, and not all of them are "fail" nor do they take any credit or artistry away from the artist themselves. No one has to "defend" Ayu doing a cover album.

E for effort though!
