I wonder why he chose that album title. Maybe in an effort to FINALLY convince everyone in Japan that he IS, in fact, a native Japanese and not a Westerner or a "half", as many of them seem to think
Anyway, I like the title and the track list, but the covers are a big no-no. I mean, you want to have a cover that makes people want to buy the album. This austere look might convince grumpy old men to buy it and I don't think they'll like what they hear. Give us a smile, Ken! Boku wa Kimi no Koi wo Suru was grim and dark, Sing Forever was enigmatic, CANDY was bland, Aishiteru was Ken lying in a coffin and Itoshiki Hibi yo was grey and empty. Compare all of those to the Fakin' Pop cover and you'd think he was struggling with a depression or something.
But I guess it's the music that matters most. Still, I hope he'll do ok! He obviously won't manage to match Fakin' Pop's 320k, but I just hope he at least goes Gold.
