I'm curious to see what the rest of the cover outfit looks like.

^Same here.

I'm not really impressed or blown away by the covers but i quite like their simplicity and class. I think I just miss the "more" creative Ayu when it comes to album covers etc. But, anyway who am I to judge this early. There must be some reason why Ayu decided to use these photos. Let's just wait for interviews about this or someone tweet her non stop . LOL

I love the CD only nonetheless.

Some of ayus past covers are really basic and not the best, but people will keep spamming rainbow til the end of days.

And then talking about namie. Would everyone prefer a cover like Uncontrolled for this album? And I think if ayu had done the feel concept, it would have been considered uncreative and boring and an edgy black and white rip off of some shoot she did forever ago. Or her last ayu-mi-x release. Something.
What basic covers? I can't think of any, tbh. They're all lovely. No way to say is kinda basic but at least she's wearing a fur coat for the winter theme. <.<;;;

Am I the only one who likes the (miss)understood covers? I get the raw, messy, imperfect nature of them.

Oh god, hell no! That has to be one of Namie's worst covers, she looks terminally ill if not worse. And regarding FEEL, what made the covers interesting was the "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" concept. As stand alone pictures they weren't anything to write home about, just nice to look at.

I'm surprised by the reactions on here, and then not really lol. I'm one of the people who keep on mocking the pastel, instagram-esque covers so i'm really happy with these, yet so many people seem to dislike them. I personally don't see what's wrong with them, she looks amazing, editorial and the typography is actually creative FOR ONCE. And guys, can we just celebrate the fact that she's not duck-lipping in any of the pics? HALLELUJAH

I still don't get the hate lol... I like that awkward smile. The unpolished look shows it was done on purpose and not just a bad choice of photo.

And in A SUMMER BEST she looks hot! Omg

I meant that the last two were great choice for the cover. the one that end up being the actual cover (the first one) is a joke. How can you chose that over the las 2 pictures?

I don't know, but for a while I thought ayu let her worst enemy choose the covers.

^ Oh! Sorry, for some reason the top picture didn't show up the first time.



Btw.... just saw the Lelio PV and it has pretty much sold the CD+Bluray version for me even though the cover is atrocious! I don't understand why people dislike the PV, it's one of my favorite ayu PVs of all time. Need it in HD!!!!

I agree with rainbow. I love the cover where she's covering her mouth, but I dislike the smiling one. It's too wide. Her smile looks forced, it's just a bit too much. Tone it down a bit, bring the lips in a bit, open the eyes more, and show less teeth. You're not advertising toothpaste.

10 tracks on the album 5 editions. Makes sense.

Want good covers? Buy the damn candle edition you'll never use.

Yeps, she had strong themes since Black Cherry.

Notice how the C on the CD+Blu-ray is going around Ayu's eye? Ayu confirmed Illuminati.

Honestly Ayu's album covers have has a flawless track record of being awful:
My Story
mu
Secret
Next level
RnRC
Love songs
A Summer Best

They have all had a tendency to look either awkward, uninspired, or tackily styled.

This one (Colours) is honestly my favourite one since Guilty (though nowhere near as good as the A Ballads one). At least it's tastefully executed. The typography doesn't bother me as much cos at least it isn't that ONE font in italics that she's been abusing.

like the rainbow cover because it has a clever concept (the booklet on the other hand is a mess) photo manipulation and not an *actual* rainbow on it. i can see that people put proper effort in this, its not just a fashion shoot

that being said, despite liking the rainbow cover, her face always looked stoned to me
s cross eyed

well, good for ayu, at least many seem to like the new covers.
