Wow this new album is very diverse sounding & some aspects of it remind of MY STORY, especially tracks 5-9. I'm actually quite surprised at how good the previews sound! I really didn't know what to expect, but I'm confident to say that I think this album is going to be pretty solid. I remember when I listened to the previews for Love songs I thought the songs sounded outdated & weird...but these are nothing of the sort! I also am liking how there are a lot of new songs on this album .

I think my favorite previews were NaNaNa and call. & Omg the more I listen to Party queen the more it grows on me. I'm trying to hold off on listening to it though until next week when the album leaks .

I think my only complaint was the interludes sounded lame...but normally I could care less about the interludes.

This is EXACTLY the change I wanted to see from her. I can't even explain how happy I am. These previews are incredible. As expected, it isn't FULL of "party" songs, but the ones that are there sound incredible. I love the way the album starts off seemingly all happy and carefree, but gets really dark. It's a cool progression. The only songs I'm really not feeling are the next LOVE and Eyes, Smoke, Magic, but the rest sound like I could fall in love with any of them.

I am weeping tears of joy cos if the previews are anything to go by, this album is LEAPS and BOUNDS above anything she's released since My Story, possibly. I am SO glad that she ditched the cheap TK-esque techno sound that plagued more than half of Love Songs. The first couple of 'Party' songs sound fantastic, there's a good dose of the rock stuff she does so well. Tracks 11 and 12 sound possibly a little out of place (imagine how epic this album could have been if they'd replaced them with Sparkle and Lady Dynamite instead!). I absolutely cannot wait to hear this album performed live.

NaNaNa sound amazing. loving the arrangment.
call is gosh too. loving the guitar and her voice!
reminds me brought me to tears..
Return Road is going to be epic i am sure.. pure majestic just from the preview
the next LOVE is something different and unique from her discography.. can;t wait for the full song..

I think this album is gonna be Amazing!!! so excited!! a million times better than next level and love songs, judging from just the previews =) Track 5-9 is definitely the best section of the album i feel so far. Track 1-3 are the party vibes. not so sure of Track 11-12 so far but it's fresh and different. But I'm definitely loving everything i'm hearing so far!!

Hmm, I don't really like 2-4 (so far, might grow on me of course), but I like 4-8, lalala in 'reminds me' is cool

Return Road is THE SONG of the album, just like 'Microphone' in R'n'R Circus and 'Love Song' in Love Songs Love 'Tell me why', very old Ayu style.

the next love is weird a bit, dunno, Eyes, Smoke, Magic sounds like it was supposed to be another SLT or really some jazz song, not my type but I may like it.

the cup of tea is really good and surprising, I expected some violin, not that electro sound

serenade is meh.. don't like it

Too bad shake it and nanana have PVs, I'd love to see any of 5 to 12, good that return road at least has it

I like Eyes, Smoke, Magic simply because it has that burlesque-showgirl-strip tease feel lol

I would love a PV for the next LOVE... in a cabaret, Ayu on stage the same climax as in GREEN PV, and a lot of RED all along the video !

Oh gosh, the interludes are terrible lol That's the bad out of the way!

NaNaNa and Shake It I'm neutral too, I need the full things. I like the sound of call, very MY STORY. I like this midtempo rock sound - I'm not a big fan of rock Ayu, I like it when she does this style though. Letter sounds good too. reminds me is VERY Ayu!

Not a fan of the main part of Return Road (shock!), but that instrumental part it goes into sounds divine! Intrigued for the full thing. the next Love sounds okay, and Eyes, Smoke, Magic sounds interesting...? She wasn't joking when she said musical, it's never this full out when she says a song is in a certain style. Only one piano/string ballad too, but eh, she more than made up for it in midtempo rock songs. I don't like HBYA.

Sounds good, think I'll like it more than everything since GUILTY, but I don't know if it will top Love Songs for me. Some songs on that were just TOO amazing, even if some were crap. Seems there is no "fan song" on here, yaaay!

I don't know what to think about the previews... I don't know why I keep listening to Ayu's previews before the songs are out, 'cause I listen to the previews and think they're just ok, and then the album comes out and I totally love the full songs... It's weird, but it always happen with me when Ayu releases a new album.

So, as usual, I'll just ignore the previews from now on and wait for the whole album to come out, then I can judge <3

But I can already say that the interludes sound amazing *-*

These songs are all MADE for performing live, my god.
