The song name is Free, the live at the end is just to indicate that it's a live video, not a PV Smile

Yay, more people listening to Abe Mao's music! Love

I listened to her album "Free" earlier this year, and I was very suprised. I think that she has a very strong and nice voice and her music rocks, I guess my favorite song so far is "Free" Smile. I can't wait for her 2nd album, I hope it's as good as the first one.

I like the covers, Mao looks really good Smile. They are so different if you compare them to the covers from her 1st album, she looks very sexy and mature in them. I hope the songs on the album are as good as the covers Boogie.

There is a Mao Abe thread! ^_^ I really like Free; it's still on my iPod all the time. Deadline is one of my favorite j-pop songs. She's so...assertive in that song. XD I was kind of surprised by Pop, though, with songs like Monroe...not bad, but quite different from her rough accoustic pop-rock on Free.

Ah, I can never keep up with j-pop girls and all their singles; at least I always have something new to listen to. I wonder if these are recently-penned songs, or if she's still singing the ones she wrote in high school. And it's out on my birthday, very cool. Nod
