When I think rock ballad, I also think of songs like HOPE or PAIN and fated.

Fated for sure. I think it was even described as such at one point officially.

I agree with HOPE or PAIN too. Though I know a lot of people are super picky about what they let be classified as "rock" lol

I can't remember the last time I pre ordered something from yesasia, so I forget- do they charge you when you place the order, or when the item ships/is in stock? It's actually for a sailor moon item but it pertains to ayu items also, I suppose.

Memmorial Address, MOON, You were..., fated, together when..., A song for XX, hanabi -ep2- , criminal, Heartplace, Marionette, Days, even I am could be a rock ballad..... I think her rock ballads are the best kind of ballads.
The rock elements are so vivid in her music, that's what i love about it.

"Fated" isn't very rockish tbh. It's too soft at the verses.
When I think "rock ballad" i hear "Memorial address" instantly.
or "Last Links", "(miss)understood" maybe.
maybe "reminds me" - but it may be too fast for a ballad?

[edit.]

oh, cika - yeah, those too~ maybe besides Days (lol, rock?) and criminal (it's more dramatic than rock, it's just a dark song, it doesn't really mean it's rock XD it's something similar to GUILTY and count down in style.)
but well MOON, Hanabi ~ep II~, Heartplace, Marionette are kind of it. Maybe they are not stricte "rock ballads" but they obviously have those elements. True rock ballad it's Memorial address as I said. xd

I always thought that "is this LOVE?" was a rock ballad... Now I'm not so sure, but maybe...?

I don't agree with HANABI ~episode II~ being rock at all (it's got more electronic elements than anything) or You were... (loud guitars and shout-y chorus don't necessarily equal rock, but then I haven't listened to that song very closely at all).

I'd argue that just because a song has soft parts doesn't mean it can't still be rock inclined (fated). I mean, all the songs in question are pop rock more than "true rock" anyway. fated has a really pop rock arrangement so I think it qualifies regardless of the soft verses.

I'm so excited for this single!
Not having any PVs is a bummer to me, since I liked CoLOURS PVs a lot. But it seems we'll get epic music, so I'm not complaining!

still alone may be a rock ballad too. Days definitely isn't a rock ballad. Also, I agree that Hanabi Ep. II is more electronic than rock.

^ Second that. It's been almost four years since a-yu-trance 7. She's PQ, La, and Colours since then. Lots of material to do some remixing with.

I consider still alone a rock ballad. Heartplace, Together When...

I think the confusion is maybe that she says "rock" but we aren't sure if this means "hard rock" like Memorial address, Together When..., Marionette, countdown, or if it means "rock-style" like beloved, untitled ~for her~, or You were...

Yeah people confused "loud chorus" with rock too often around here. lol

And technically with ayu-mi-x 7 they did a remix of each single up until that point, so they didn't even really use material from the most recent albums at the time. So there is a lot of material that they could use for remixes. I'm begging for ayu trance 5.

For me, criminal is THE definition of a rock ballad. It is primarily ballad but with rock elements (rumbling guitars throughout the song). Some of the suggestions being made are more "mid-tempo pop-rock". Keep in mind, ayu had mentioned that momentum was not a ballad at one point, so anythinf that follows that type of template may not be considered a ballad by her standards. Anyway, I think we are reading too much into this. She mentioned memorial address and that's good enough. Lol.

Does Ayu consider Tell All to be "rock"? It's electronic to me.

I would be behind a rock comp album, but I think most of the tracks would be made up of songs from GUILTY.

Something like A SUMMER ROCK.

I would just love if Ayu did an A WINTER BALLADS compilation. Or A BALLADS 2. Or A BEST 3 -Spring-, -Summer-, -Fall-, -Winter-. Though I don't think we'll see another compilation record for awhile because of how poorly A SUMMER BEST did to avex. (We all know they pushed that out to try to extend the #1 album streak after PQ.)

At least 70% of her discography is composed of songs with rock influences /elements or what you want so she can easily choose over all her discography if she want to make an A BEST ROCK someday lol

To me "Tell all" is a Synth Rock song ! It's electronic but still the rock influence is well present =)

Lol! That record probably tastes better than it sounds. I think it'd be more torturous if they were forced to listen to it.

Let's focus in the good things and appreciate that ayu is still releasing music because very few artists can say they are still active at 16th anniversary!!
So excited for the single. But, trying to keep it contained.
