Ayumi Hamasaki releases a 20th anniversary edition of one of her most iconic albums.
Fandom: *drama*

I... just... can't... lol.

Also, nobody is pointing a gun over anyone's head and forcing to buy this. It's clearly a collector item that could pretty much just be ignored by anyone not interested on it.
garoto deixa as pessoas expressarem as opiniões delas sem ficar zombando delas. eu hein. maioria dos re-releases tem PELO MENOS demos da era de bonus

I'm sure the remastering will make the album a lot more enjoyable, but some people don't care about it, some can't even hear differences. so a re-recording, some kind of demo, would make this a lot more appealing to a lot of us

It's a forum were you put your opinion in public. If you can't handle people disagreeing about your opinioj, doesn't post it. And several of those celebratory re-releases have only a remaster as the nee feature, so this is not uncommon practice.

IMO is way better to have a remaster instead of gimmicky bonus tracks and shitty re-recordings that are almost always worst than the original tracks.

No mais, vai catar coquinho.

Honestly, I‘m more excited about this re-release than about anything Ayu‘s released over the last 6 years. LOVEppears was my first Ayu-album and with the remastering and the nice packaging I‘m already sold.

I don’t have this album so heck yes!
I do hope that the album packaging is vertical as well.

It would be so awesome if she recreated the cover too.

It's nice she's doing a 20th anniversary edition of Loveppears but...controversially I don't really rate this album even if there are a lot of tracks I really enjoy on it lol. I hope this does well for her. It's a good release for collectors.

I wouldn't mind if Avex put a remix album our way.

To me remastering an album to release into the same format is so pointless. If it was for a mora high res release, it would make more sense. This is like a game company remastering a game to release for the same console... I know the remastering process is probably gonna make the songs have some what of a crispier sound, but the same limitations of a CD are still gonna apply.

I understand the celebration behind this release, and I already own the original so it's not something for me.

Calling a bonus track / old demo a gimmick for a release like this is... a choice. Lol specially since it's from the artist who always had something extra to offer (many hidden tracks and other things).

I'm pretty sure there's gonna be a High Resolution version tho.

She should re-record the songs with her beautiful experienced voice.

I too wish there was a vinyl press of this remastered album, but there isn't. It is still a nice content and a very affordable price for a box (compared to Trouble or made in Japan Tour who cost more than the double)

I’ve ordered my copy~
I have no problem with people re-releasing works to celebrate a milestone such as this. But most artists use that re-release to include unreleased works. Just look at what Alanis did for the anniversary edition of Jagged Little Pill.

Nothing in this release is unavailable elsewhere, so I see this as a missed opportunity.

Don’t @ me AHS; I never got around to buying the original press so I’m all over this.

I preordered the 4-disc set from Amazon.jp and it says there’s a vendor-exclusive greeting card attached? yay.

nossa, muito maduro da sua parte essa última frase. lol

it's not about only disagreeing, it's about how every time you make us sound like whining babies and yeah, that happens sometimes, but not like you make it sound. it's super normal for re-releases to have a "gimmicky" bonus, more normal than having nothing. this "drama" you're talking about making it sound only Ayufans do - it happened last month with Xtina's debut re-release, for example. her fans weren't satisfied AT ALL.

anyway if I can I'll obviously buy this, but please quit this "if you're not going buy then shut up!!1!!" narrative. every fan has their right to complain about something the artist do that they don't agree.

I'm super excited for this! I hope the remasters shine some new light on this iconic album.

I'm sort of happy that it's not re-sung since it can be hit or miss. I liked all the resung tracks on A BEST but only liked A Song for XX on A BALLADS.

Você vestiu uma carapuça que nem era pra vc. A questão nem é achar o lançamento ruim, é o bando de gente que começa os papos de irrelevância, de preguiça, de desleixo, sempre que ela faz qualquer coisa.

Not liking something isn't drama... "Oh well, I guess she will never release something new anymore because she is a has been milking her past" is drama. Not liking something is totally ok.

@hud @Andrenekoi

kkk amadas??? UFC perde os talentos

It's not a release made for me at all, I really want her releasing new stuff, but it's really great see they showing off her legacy, sometimes people forget her actual impact in the industry.

Considering the pace of her releases at the time and the lenght of her albums during thar era and amount of different mixes on the singles, I wouldn't be surprised if it just doesn't have much more stuff from that period to release.

I can't wait for this release. Someone mentioned on Twitter that the "paper shopper" bonus from TA may be a bag that people got when buying LOVEppears in 1999.

@Andrenekoi Nah, I don't believe it's the only material she had from that time. Wasn't Love again basically made with old songs? I know they are two very different projects, but what I'm saying is that even when she was "past" her prime, she had things in storage from some other time.

Even raw demos would be good, since the lyrics could be different. Well, even LOVE ~since 1999~ would be something to look forward since not everyone has the original LOVE ~Destiny~ single.

Whatever, as I said this is not something for me. I'm happy for those who can finally have a copy of it, because it is a pretty good album.

On a side note, I wonder why they are not using the "Black Ayu" for promoting this release, since it is tie-in with appears... Well, I guess it would be too much controversy for today's standards.
