So after the first listening hmm
The album was recorded with a timespan of over three years...and yeah the songs are varying alot because of that.
I do find quite some quality difference between some of her songs. Also I pretend that that cute lil affair called birthday song never existed and erase it from my HDD. yeah ayaka is pregnant and overly in bliss, but if she writes a baby song for her unborned child, can't she keep it to herself?
From the new songs Lose Control and No End are the only real good new ones. I had higher hopes for Taisetsuna kimochi cuz the simple live performance touched me a lot. Maybe there is just too much cheese-factor and happiness in it.
Also I find the flow really weird, but maybe that's the point. Showing all kind of rainbow colors without regard if they clash with their neighboring colors/songs ^^
So in general, it's at least not so monochrome as some other releases like ayu or kuu, and has a lot of very different songs. Otherwise, a few real gems are on there, and the album is in general more happy and uplifting than the beginning, and more enjoyable than I thought it would be.
But I hope her baby doesn't inspire her to write more children songs like birthday song and such >.
