wow, 13 tracks!! Boogie

I don't think there will be any more singles to be released within this short period of time right? so by right, this album only consists of 4 A-side songs, which means, actually 9 songs are new (though she had performed 'Ai' before).

I dont know if this is good or bad. If the new songs are gonna sound like her usual mid-tempo b-side songs (hopefully not all), then i dont think this album will attract a lot of people. Moreover, these A-side songs included did not really do very/extremely well in terms of sales (correct me if im wrong.) so i think the remaining tracks is an important factor, to determine whether this album is a good buy or not. (though for me i feel that with Pocket, Kurage Nagareboshi and Rocket Sneaker, its already a must-buy album)

But im anticipating it, because of the fact that it has so many new songs!! =D
thanks for the info, edwx!

Finally, this, to me, is great news.

Firstly, I am happy that avex realised their mistake by only having five new tracks on LOVE PiECE. I attribute the lack of new tracks on that album to her subpar sales.

As for the new album, I think it'll be lucky to equal LOVE PiECE's sales, simply because Ai's career has been crap of late.

Anyway, looking at the competition for the week of the 17th of December, Ai will most likely get #1.

we can assume it'll come with 2 PVs, one for ONExTIME and one for one of the new songs from the album Tongue... this routine has appeared on her last 2 albums...

And with a wopping, 9 new songs... GOSH! we're bound to have awesome uptempo songs... Giggle Perhaps we'll gaet a bonus track on first press or something... (the Beauty version of Kurage, Nagareboshi!!!!)

GOOD NEWS...!!! Laughing

9th new tracks is definitely surprising. to be honest i haven't even get LOVE PIECE, because i have only spotted it once in the store, and i didn't have enough of to buy that time. Ever since that i'm looking for it like crazy, but it's nowhere to be seen already Sad

Love Letter, soon to go!

9 new Tracks ! That's so awesome. I'm definitly buy this masterpiece of her.
I hope for good Up-tempo Songs, but the Title of the album make me think of more ballads Confused ... Well, wait and see (~risk~ XDD).

@Negaiido: i'd like that too of course, but i suppose having a couple singles on an album helps drive some sales, no?

yay! just in time for the holidays and the season of warm, cozy fireside romance Tongue
let's hope for another #1!
it's hype time!

This sounds like a good idea however with "Kurage, nagareboshi" being the main lead single to the album, not sure how well it will do considering "Kurage's" sales. Most likely she will have either "Ai" or "LOVE LETTER" be the album single just like "Cherish" was for "LOVE COOK."

Also fan-net list 3 new untitled PV's for the album, with one being limited edition bonus. Most likely the PV's would be "Ai," "LOVE LETTER," and a new PV? Or maybe a "OnexTime" PV but that would suck!

i just noticed:

^That's right.

Finally she puts PVs of singles on the album!!!

Once again I think avex are throwing everything to try and revive her sales. So happy.

CDJapan has listed the albums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Both CD only and CD+DVD have first press.
Maybe it's same deal as last time, bonus PV for CD+DVD and photobook for CD only. That'd be neat. Tongue So getting both!!!
