^Thanks for the discography! You formatted it better than I would have. I probably won't edit the first post with the discography since your post is the second post.

One thing I did forget, you can here a preview of Orion here (approximately 3 minutes in):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWPIdk8VQxU

I like it, though I don't think it's anything special since it sounds somewhat similar to some of their recent songs. But I guess I like it because I like the melody and I can tolerate the pace of the song since I usually like slower songs.

I can't wait for their 4th album (whenever that comes out). Been listening to their 3rd album lately and so I anticipate their next album even more, especially since I like most of not all of their recent singles. Granted some of them sounded similar but Joyful was really good. Hopefully there will be a few more tracks in that direction on the album.

I love Ikimonogakari and they are one of my favorite bands Love . I love their songs, I love their PV's, I love their covers, I love their's lyrics, I love everything about these guys (and girls Laughing ). Unfortunately the music from the "My Song, Your Song"-Era wasn't as good as the songs from their first album ("Sakura Saku Machi Monogatari" is still my favorite album from them Love ). But the last singles (especially "YELL / Joyful" Nod ) were very good, I can't wait for "Nakumonka" and their 4th album Boogie .

The PV for Nakumonka is out! Funny thing is I found out on my facebook feed LOL

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pr8Tfcqyq20

Wasn't expected a slow song from them for some reason. I'm still excited for this single because I can't wait for the full version of Orion to come out.

I have to say that I love this single Love . "Nakumonka" is an amazing song with beautiful instrumentals, it reminds me of their previous winter'ish song "Planetarium" a lot Nod . I enjoyed "Orion" as well, it's a lot more christmassy than "Nakumonka :>.

I can't wait for their new album (Remember, the release date is the 23rd of December!), I'm sure it's a lot better than "My Song Your Song" Pleased.

I'm still trying to find confirmation on the release of the album. But I can't wait for it.

I have to listen to the single too. I've heard of both songs but haven't listened to the full versions for each. Well maybe the A-side since I've seen the PV.

I'm not sure if I like the album title, it sounds a bit cheap Shocked. I reminds me of their last album title "My Song Your Song", but oh well...

Actually "Hajimari no Uta" means "The First Song" Wink.

Ah ... hmm well it is the title according to CDJ. The album is up for pre-order. If you want the first press for the CD-only version from CDJ, better hurry because as of right now there's only 9 first press left.

Temporary track list is out.

There should be a song 13 as well but that was left blank Confused

I'll have to get around to updating the first post. Hopefully some time tmr.

I don't like the cover too much, it looks a bit boring and reminds me of the cover from "My Song Your Song". The tracklist is okay, but I don't like the fact that all the singles are the first 5 tracks, this is so uncreative Sneeze.

Tracklist [Romaji+Translations]:

01. Futari (Us)
02. Hotaru no Hikari (Light of the Fireflies)
03. YELL
04. Joyful
05. Nakumonka (I won't cry)
06. Kosumosu (Cosmos)
07. Ashita e Mukau Kaerimichi (The way back towards tomorrow)
08. Tenohira no Oto (Sound of the Palm)
09. Tooi Sora Sunde (The clear sky is so faraway)
10. How to make it
11. Mahiru no Tsuki (Midday Moon)
12. Yumemidai (Dream Stage)
