I received my copy, it looks great, it sounds delightful, I really enjoy the remasters, the songs sound somewhat less harsh and cleaner. It is pleasant to revisit her ballads with a small update.

Just curious, do we have a comprehensive list of ballads that were left off of this release? GREEN is the first one that springs to mind but there were certainly others.

Tbh, I never thought of æternal as a ballad.

I find aeternal the weekness of this release... and it also was the weakness of Trouble.

To me, it sounds like a half-assed demo that doesn’t really go anywhere. The only part I really enjoy is the bridge. Sometimes I space out when the song is playing and ignore it but that part catches my attention because it’s the only real variation. That awful drum machine track though…

That said, I’m sure the song has its fans and I don’t mean to rain on anyone’s parade!

I wonder why she didn't pick "Sunset -Love is All-". It's so very ballad.
She should have gathered all the single & promo song, before picked an album track; like "SAKURA", "untitled", or "LIFE".

probably she hates the single cover. jk

Sunset reminds Sunrise , that can be the reason.

Honestly, this album is helping avex to get more money to pay their debt and helping avex's financial problem only. I didn't expect this album with great quality in terms of "choice of tracks, photo shoots, etc"

Eh, at the end as long as she chose the songs, then even the ones I don’t like as much I can appreciate being on the release as it’s more personal to her.


Walk
Shape of love
Return road
And more I’d love on there but at least it’s a problem I have with Ayu and not Avex
And it’s her music so in the end, I have no problem
With ayu ������ but damn, shape of love deserved more hahaha

Apologies if I missed it somewhere, but does anyone have scans of the album booklet?

Honestly, I'd been away from Ayu for some time now but this release drew me back in. This is a really strong collection. Ayu's ballads are unmatched. 春よ、来い is beautiful.
