I consider MOON a "night summer song", just like HANABI and HANABI ~episode II~ are. Admiring the moon is one of the summer night's clichés.

Oh interesting!

I’ll try to work it into a nighttime playlist this summer haha.

I like Moon more now than when it was released, but it’s definitely in my underplayed category so I’ll try to appreciate it more haha.

I really like how strong the guitars are in its arrangement. It isn't the greatest ballad of her, but it's a solid release.

Exactly the same for me. We’re probably biased because it was released in July, but it does sound summery to me. It’s a really great ballad, the guitars are amazing. All of the singles for Love songs were on point, no wonder it’s my favorite album from her.
I remember hating the close up CD only cover because she did look like kana Nishino to me but then starting to love it lol Her covers went downhill after that now that I think about it.
Btw, the MOON remix on Ayu-trance 4 is amazing too.

Same! Ayu-trance 4 is a great album! Would be nice to get another one even if it's only digital (I do enjoy the extended versions on streaming/download services)

This year marks 20th anniversary of I Am.. and Rainbow. Both are my fav Ayu albums. I wonder if there is anything planned for the occasion. A vinyl edition would be amazing.

Oof, Rainbow on vinyl? I would jump on that immediately. Even if it is not necessarily my single favourite album I love it to bits and its artwork I've always found utterly amazing. Let's hope this happens. All of Hikki's albums up until Hatsukoi were just announced to release on vinyl later this year so if at any time, then perhaps now.

I don't know if it was posted here or not, but I wanted to share some Rina Aiuchi covers for Ayu songs uploaded in Rina's YouToube channel. Really impresive to listening, so it's worth it!

M (Rina Aiuchi cover)


Who... (Acoustic Orchestra version) (Rina Aiuchi cover)


a song is born (Rina Aiuchi cover)

And she's somehow an Ayu-fan, I think

As an Ayu-fan and as well as an Rina-fan, I couldn't resist the "temptation" and converted these videos into MP3 format so I can have it in my PC and/or my cellphone.

Awesome!

It would be nice to create a resource thread for all these kinds of things, if I can find the time today I'll get on it (from tomorrow I'll be on holiday so little opportunity of posting).

Why doesn’t Ayu’s team take advantage of YouTube shorts and stuff???

Dragon Ash has been uploading little clips of their past singles these past few months.
https://youtube.com/shorts/sxrDFg7BgPw?feature=share

It’s such a simple thing to do, and considering she has so many releases after her peak, I feel like it would at least help bring attention to those songs…

it seems like I've never actually listened MADE IN JAPAN album or listened to it only once.

'tasky' sounds so much like Bjork's 'Pagan Poetry' :O

Damn, years of listening to Björk and Ayu and I didn't notice until you just pointed it out!
