^ give it a bit... someone should upload it here...
I would but my internet connection is being a *****.

Missing is amazing.
Melody - boring as ****, but still pretty.
Wake me up - um... Its really good if you are at the club, with a drink in one hand and a huge crowd around you.
snowy kiss - is on repeat, nuff said. (although the middle part is a little, blah)

I find it better then the remo-con remix... although both have elements of dubstep, which is really only good at a club.
and yes instrumentals, although if you can call them that (i considered them karaoke tracks)

All the instrumentals are available too.

Missing is really good, almost made me cry. Melody is quite cute/quite boring xD
The remixes are better than LOVE, but still, not my taste.
"snowy kiss" is better than "Wake me up" though.

I just want them to stop this mess called dubstep in her remixes.

i think Snowy Kiss might be too long. it becomes repetitive, other than that it's really a great song.

I just uploaded it for you - I felt bad that everyone is here talking about it and nobody has re-upped it yet for the AHS community.
It's in the download section. GO ENJOY!!

i don't know who that is, but i'm going to assume he's no one special since that's what those PVs are.

He's the guy who has been directing just about all of Ayu's PVs since late 2009 or so.

Just got home from work; now I can finally listen to these songs. Prior to this the only full version I heard before was Wake Me Up. So, this is all pretty much new for me.

Wake Me Up - Sounds so great in HQ. I noticed a lot of small things I couldn't before; lots of nice little touches are in the background. I liked this song immediately on first listen. Not perfect, but I think the more I listen the more I'm going to like it.

Sweet Scar - basically what I expected from the PV version. Very pretty, but kind of boring. It does fit her vocals right now though. Her vocals in general sound like they are getting this thinner, kind of breathless quality to them - so actually this kind of slow, soothing sound might be the best style for her voice right now.

Ivy - hmmm, Not sure I like the melody at the beginning. The words are all too over enunciated. Something about the delivery and phrasing seems kind of strange. The music is really pretty. Honestly I'm not sure what I think of this song. lol

Snowy Kiss - Very TK. haha. It sounds like something he would release in his more experimental late 90s/early 00s phase. That's a good thing. I love TK. This song has soo much going on in it, I need some time to digest it. Also, does this maybe qualify as the longest song in her discography? Criminal I think comes close but I don't think it broke the 6 minute mark. And I may be mistaken, but that sounds like TK doing backup vocals to me.

Overall, way better than Love, that's for sure. Best track is Wake Me Up, but Snowy Kiss is right up there too. Ivy and Sweet Scar I could take or leave for the most part.

It could be the lyrics but i haven't read them though.

snowky kiss doesn't sound like 6 minutes to me but on the other hand Ivy sounds like an hour long...
haha, I agree. Snowy Kiss actually felt like it went by pretty fast for a 6 minute song. It was Ivy were I was checking my watch.

Also, I rarely pay attention to remixes, but I like the one of Wake Me Up.

"WHATEVER (Dub’s 1999 Remix)" found on "LOVEppears" is 07:20 long (though one could count it as a remix, and that is what it's called). "do it again" also comes close to "snowy kiss" with 05:50.
EDIT: And yes! My copies of "again" have arrived at Tenso.
