What a good surprise. The overall sound is typically Ayu but it stays fresh in some way too. I hope someone we'll translate the lyrics.

it sounds less polished to me, and I like the raw feeling it gives for this kind of angry rock song. (are the lyrics angry though? guess I'll find out when we have an English translation.)

This, vocally sounds like 95% Ayumi, 5% some random male lol

But it's a cool song!

^thanks for translating them BTW!

I don't remember the last time i was this inspired by her that i actually made myself a new set for the forum. I think it was Last minute, or maybe We Are the QUEENS.

I'm happy that shes more active these days, I can see that she's raising the bar for herself in several aspects.
It would be good if Ayu would get a professional vocal coach and work with that person on a very regular basis for a few months. A singer has never learned out, also it's very easy to fall back as a singer. The voice is in a different condition everyday if you don't do the right exercise at the right moment/condition its not gonna help, so it's always good to have an outside standing person/professional hear out and listen to what the vocals need right now. With a quality coach (maybe like Seth Riggs) it would only bring her forward.

I agree a vocal coach might help her, however, it’s a scientific fact that after childbirth, women’s singing voices do go down in octave. It’s kind of interesting!

I love ayu's rockish songs. Lower vocals are a welcome change, but I wish she let herself sing naturally, she alters her voice too much and I don't enjoy it.
MV teaser looks super cool, had goosebumps.

The song is great. Definitely a throwback imo, but still unique. I personally love her voice in this, especially with the lyrics.

However, is anyone reminded my of Dream ON, the song she did with Urata Naoya? Idk what it is but my first thought was of that song when I heard the beat drop at the beginning of 23rd Monster.

Actually I quite like the title of the song. Reminds me of the novel, The Minds of Billy Milligan, where there are 24 personalities in the protagonist.
