^ I guess some stores are treating it as a Wednesday-release (aka yesterday) to simplify their logistics I remember similar stuff happening to those 15th anniversary countdown releases, which didn't all came out on Wednesdays

Started with End Roll and already noticed a glitch - at 0:04 if you listen carefully there's a false start to the main song that skips.

Seasons feels much better with the remastering... but Who somehow feels too different, almost as if they turned the chorus into a more rockish version.

Yeah, I know you can get that one, but you know... it's more of a tease than a consolation, really.
Welp. I tried.

it sounds a lot 'clearer' from what i can tell, you can make out the individual instrumental layers a lot more distinctly....

some people might not like the sound of this though, it sounds 'colder', while the original a best had a warmer quality to it. really depends on taste.

Exactly, I agree with js_surrealism, it definitely sounds more clearer. I'm at track six "Boys & Girls" and wow, this has such a different vibe to it. More pumping, more modern, the electric guitar is more louder. Trust and Love ~Destiny~ are also a bit more noticeable.

Listening to this album reminded me how painful it is to listen to early Ayu. She has a pretty low voice but was clearly forced to sing in a very high key, which is way out of her comfort zone and range, so her vocals are often strained, scratchy and uncomfortable. The album sounds beautiful though, if I don't pay attention to the vocals.

everyone is expecting huge sales, bigger than those from her previous works, right ?
if she puts an information sheet for her upcoming album, no one can ever say that 'they don't know if she is still releasing music' since everyone knows a best ...

I don't think so...
There is really NO promotion for this release besides YouTube and Music Station.
People who does not check Ayu's actuality won't check her YouTube channel or her website...
A CM may be aired during Music Station tonight but I haven't seen any CM for it on TV this week...
