^ technically, "Last Birthday" is not a new song, just an unreleased one. It's been around since 2004, when she began playing it at lives.

So this is still considered as a mini-album? I remember when something like this would be called a maxi-single..

Oh, well. I hope it does well. I'm just glad she's releasing SOMETHING.

That sucks :/ At least she'll finally release it though.

Meh. It started out nice, but then ends up dragging.

I'm revisiting her older stuff. I forgot how awesome of a B-side Squall ni Nurete is. <3 I wish she'd go back to the sound she had for Around the World and some of Conetta's eras.

All of her Alex material was gold for different reasons... While I love connetta it's just a shame that with that flop winter single they started to ruin her career all over again

It sounds okay.
It's better than the continual nothing we were getting before. smiley: laugh

I'm happy Future is included though, I like that song, it just sounds cute and promising, full of good vibes and feelings.

I felt like I was listening to Ai Otsuka after it was over. It sounds like something she or Maki Goto would sing.

That said, the song's okay. I like it a little bit.

Hmm, you're right. smiley: laugh
I'm probably just chuffed and think it's okay because I'm blinded by the fact that she's finally release something, anything, haha.

Yeah, but I don't know why they get her to do ballads... she can sing but she doesn't have a ballad voice. Up-beat electro tracks all the way

^ lol

I took a listen to the single earlier today. It's a decent single, but isn't very memorable. The remixes could have been better. The Be Together remix is kind of decent, but the other one is a dud.

^ Oh yeah, I forgot. I'm just used to how they used to do it in the past where something like this would be called a "maxi-single" usually, like with Ayumi's older, 10-track singles. Also usually it was only the singles that had the instrumentals/karaoke tracks on them, not the albums.. I wonder why they changed the format...

Not a massive release as we all know already, but I enjoyed it for what it offered. C28268d64cb614f8844920c1b302440aff8ddd1f_r

Hopefully it is not another 3 years before we get another 'album', haha.

Freudian slip? Haha.

Taken at face value and not comparing to some of her much better, older material, I actually really enjoyed this mini (Future and Shining excluded...feel like I've heard sooo many J-Pop songs that sound like those...). It was obviously thrown together with the old songs but I enjoyed it, and surprisingly enough I LOVE the remix of BE TOGETHER.
