The mini album consists of a rock track, a sad yet uplifting track, a ballad sung with a 'big voice' (they use 'one main vocal' in the description), and a medium ballad that will speak to the listener. This release will also truly show off Ayu's creativity. (tokyoxjapanxfan)

Where did the main tracks leak? I want to listen to them but I can't find them anywhere...

Romanized tracks informations :

01. Wake me up [04:05]
Lyrics : Ayumi Hamasaki
Composers : Hiten Bharadia, Philippe-Marc Anquetil
Arrangement : tasuku

02. Sweet scar [04:12]
Lyrics : Ayumi Hamasaki
Composer : DAI
Arrangement / String Arrangement : Yuta Nakano

03. snowy kiss [06:07]
Lyrics : Ayumi Hamasaki
Composer : Tetsuya Komuro
Arrangement : tasuku
BG Vocals Arrangement : Yuta Nakano
String Arrangement : Kadowaki Daisuke

04. Ivy [04:39]
Lyrics : Ayumi Hamasaki
Composer : Tetsuya Komuro
Arrangement / String Arrangement : Yuta Nakano

Lol Hiten Bharadia and Philippe-Marc Anquetil work for PhrasedDifferently, avex most likely just bought the demo. Is this why they didn't reveal their names?
Well once again Yuta Nakano participated for the arrangement of most of the tracks. Nice to see tasuku too!

This may just be Ayumi's best release to date. Wonderfully experimental throughout and "snowy kiss" is nothing short of a masterpiece.
I can forget about the "LOVE" mess now.

I CAN'T DEAL WITH THE EPICNESS & FLAWLESSNESS THAT IS SNOWY KISS.
This is everything Party Queen should have been, possibly my favorite track since BALLAD..

I like all tracks except Sweet scar.

Wake me up is everything that has been missing from her music. That's fierceness, that power, that feeling that the song HAS IT ALL. Not to mention, the bridge is flawless.

snowy kiss is really nice - it's different yet classic. The chorus kind of drags I wish it had developed a bit more but it is nice.

Ivy is wonderful. Her best ballad in a while (minus Missing). Definitely better than Sweet scar. Hard to pin whether or not this is above snowy kiss for me but it's beautiful.
