I played the album in a loop since its digital release and I like it more and more. Even aeternal sounds better for me now.

I love the album too, and I can actually feel the magic in her songs even now. Just because her vision doesn't match yours, doesn't mean she's not putting any effort.

It's not her best release, but it's not bad by any means. I'm happy to see considerably strong sales on the first day of release and I rellay hope the will continue. <3

I doubt we'll get any new music this year. But I hope she's working on a proper album for the next year. TROUBLE was not worth the wait, and Avex saying these songs are "single quality" is just them trying to sell/save face.

Nice sales so far! Didn't expect that.

Agreed. There are some flaws with it (as there are with most of her releases) but this is nowhere close to being her worst.

Also on the topic of not feeling the ayu magic, I still feel the ayu magic in "We are the QUEENS" and "W". I mean it's hard not to. Both are such outstanding tracks in her discography. I hope I don't ever reach the point where I don't feel that ayu magic. Even if it's just a few songs on an album, I've still been able to feel it pretty consistently over the past decade.

I think the digest versions of the concert sound pretty good. I would wait to pass judgment until a proper rip comes out because the individual songs that were uploaded from China look and sound like it's someone recording it playing on their laptop or tv or something; the sound in general was just bad. It wasn't limited to just Ayu's vocals.

Yep, I was rewatching that with good earphones and the instrumentals sounds pretty awful. She's not perfect by any means vocally (and she is struggling to sustain notes during "I am..." verses), but I think the proper show isn't that bad as those videos show.

I'm a little bit dissapointed. Hoped for a full album - Trouble is okay, but nothing special. The Way I am is my favorite as far

Sometimes Japanese companies really don't accept some foreign credit cards. For example, when I wanted to pay for a fanclub, it simply won't let me, when my friend tried for me, it worked fine. I still don't know why this was, but it happened a lot to me and my friends that sometimes paying with a credit card doesn't work for one of us while the others had no problems. I would recommend trying another credit card.

It says something like:

With today's column, introducing a number from recent release "TROUBLE!"

Taking off running from something,
wishing "I do not want this night to dawn,"
searching for "a world where tomorrow does not come"—
unto solitudinous you precisely,
it is a song I hope be delivered.


Edit: Lol, I didn't realize there's a whole article attached to that link.

The second link looks like an article that is some kind of interpretation or lyrical analysis of WORDS. The google translation doesn't make a lot of sense but that is what it looks like to me. I don't think I have ever heard of uta-net.com honestly. It looks kind of old school.
