Thanks for the new link!
It's the first time I read the lyrics: Ayu usual lines are overused, but strangely they never bore me. She's so poetic, and even if she expresses the same image and concept again and again, I don't mind, lol.
I'm getting all kind of good, old LOVEppears vibes from this single, and I'm loving it!

Damn it.

Listened via the download section. To song itself isn't bad, but I don't think it's for ayu. Her voice is borderline deeper than the males. She sort of sounds grandma-ish singing at the beginning. I wish she'd just embrace her inner rock goddess because that's the only place get current voice would seem to excel.

the only thing that sounds sooo grandma to me is the -ah-ah-ah-ah part (yes I know Ive been mentioning this a few times already) when she sounds like a grandma whos going to cough while laughing at the same time that cringes me listening to that and when non ayu fans listen to this part, thats all

for the rap part, its really depend on your taste, if you ever listen to up-beat r&b dance or ballad song then you gonna like it,if not then ok

Verbal's rap is so jpop, but it fits this song
This single is going to be truly one of my fav
And I feel that her next album will have lots of gems and will be superb

One of the best upbeat singles in her discography. Yes, I said it! I'm in heaven with this single! It's everything I've ever wanted and never knew I did!

Thank you for the preview!

The first notes sounded promising... then came her deep unpleasing voice. Then the arrangements went really generic and bland. And the rap part... I don't know how to say it. There is no energy at all. He sounds like an old man trying to rap.

I will wait for the full version but this so promising single is going to be really forgettable IMO.

When you can hear such things as Macklemore nowadays this sounds pretty amateurish in every aspects.

But... that's just how her voice is. I'm not really sure how anyone is supposed to take that. I LOVE the rap part... it feels so fitting with the song.

And as for the Macklemore thing, you cannot compare someone who has practically been rapping their entire life to a J-Pop artist's first or second go at it.
