^ quoting you all. It's easily one of the best among ayu's ballads. I HAVE CHILLS. She showed once again that she's the true queen of ballads. My god. It's too beautiful for words.

My first impression: didn't like it. The chorus looked like it was going to be epic, but it fell down after a few seconds. The intro and the bridge's first part are nice.

Well, maybe it'll grow on me later, but until then, i'll pass this one (saddly).

It DOES sound LOVE again-ish but I really lile it. Ballads have always been ayu's strongest point for me, and this is no exception. I wish it had a beautiful PV and a couple of TV lives so it could grow more on me, but I doubt well be gettin any if that

I love it

I've posted a translation in the Pray Lyrics thread. It's one of her best lyrics in a while imo.

Nice melody and voice ! I really like this short passage after the chorus with this asian instrument ?? it is unfortunate we don't heard more asian things like that through the whole song ! The song is nice but I expected a "WoW" moment before the last chorus but it never came ... it's my only complaint but her singing is very emotional =)

The arrangement is gorgeous. Not too sure how I feel about the composition yet. But this is a solid song!

This song is very beautiful and emotional. I'm impressed with the classical feel and that asian instrument that appears for a short while in the song. Ayu's voice is really good and the beginning is as well very good. What can I say more! I'm very glad for this release
I've listened to Pray for 8-10 times already.

so.. i'm just even more sure after listening to this as a whole that it belongs tpo LOVE again. Now they did some good stuff in it, but i kinda wanted more build up towards the chorus, more layers in the instrumental, because the intros and stuff in between was rather good. gosh i cannot get rid of the feeling that it reminds me of either Sakura or Gloria I cannot make up my mind it has those string sinthesizers in it as well i think it actually has a bit of both, maybe more on the Sakura side tho. Yep deffinitelly Sakura. One thing I do really love is vocals.

in all... this is not a bad ballad. It's lovelly.

There's a part of the melody that really sounds like "HANABI" before the finale.

I loved every second of this song, the instrumentals are wonderful and the emotions are overflowing through the lyrics it deserves the same attention JEWEL had eight years ago...
