(See the SDaudio section.)

Quote:
Can you save data in different formats such as audio, video, still pictures and documents on a single SD card?
Yes, you can save data in different formats as long as the card has sufficient memory capacity. However, to play or transfer the data you will need equipment that is compatible with the appropriate data format such as SD-Audio, SD-Video and SD Document.
- .wav files on USB are to be approximately 278 times better quality than the ones on the CD, likely to be digital masters of the songs, also includes regular .aiff files
- microSD+USB+DVD+photobook edition will be housed in a 3 fold LP-sized packaging like the following image but LP-sized instead of CD-sized.

'アナログLPサイズの3つ折りパッケージにmicroSDとUSB、DVD、フォトブック、歌詞ブックレ ッ トが全て同梱されています。'

"Dream ON" sounds better than I thought.

I didn't pre-order the single, because it was "just" a collaboration, but I reli like this song. If I like the PV too, then I'll surely buy the single!

Dream ON is not what I was expecting at all... She sounds pretty bad in it. The English in the chorus should of been avoided all together.

Thank GOD this is not on Love songs.

I got almost same thought, but it's not that bad after 2nd listening. Her english and some manner in song is just annoying. But "SPEAK UP!" it's reli nice.

As I said on the other thread, I love Dream ON very much. I kinda hope that it's on Love songs too but it probably isn't which makes me feel sad. :/

Oh well, there's always the single that I can overplay. <3

AHS must be so thirsty for something upbeat xD

Anyway...
The English part in the lyrics bugs me, it's way too reminiscent of Heartplace.
Another thing... the high note at 2:49 is poorly executed.

But I'm not disappointed, as I didn't expect anything mindblowing from a collaboration.
It's a song that I'll listen to for a while, but then forget about it, because it's just nothing special.
Kinda like Real Me.

^ I wanted to say that but I was afraid of being flamed

Close to a total mess. Verses kind of saved the song - barely though.

I love the song, don't care what anyone else says. And Ayu's vocals sound very old school... or is it just me?
