Since "Sakura Harahara" is a B-Side I doubt she'll put it on the album. I'm pretty sure the other songs will be included though. Smile
I'm interested how the new tracks will sound. She kinda drifted away from Love Tricky's electronic sound lately (well except for "Tokyo Sanpo" and maybe "Hey Bear") but maybe some of the songs will get new arrangements on the album (similar to how "9" was turned into a pop-rock track instead of a piano ballad).

Either way, I can't wait!

Some of these song titles are a bit... But oh well, I'm still looking forward to the album! I mean there are only 4 songs we haven't heard yet but I'm pretty sure some of the songs she performed live will get different arrangements for their studio versions. Smile
Also, it's interesting that she put Sakura Harahara on the album. This is the first time she has ever put a B-Side on one, right?

I would even say 5 new songs since we only heard a 30sec snippet.

Maybe we can consider OnexTime as a b-side since it didn't get any PV (at first), though it was promoted as an a-side single along with Rocket Sneaker.

Not convinced by some songs which sound weak to me, but I'm still excited to listen to the album as a whole!

Here's a full lyrics video for "Starter Pistol" :

Have to admit this is a pleasant surprise. The weakest part of the song is the... chorus which was the part we heard the preview before on her official website. Pretty sold as a whole!

It's cute but doesn't blow me away. Still, a solid song.

Same thing goes for the previews. Some of the songs sound nice, others sound either boring or messy. I'll wait for the full album before I judge the album though! Smile

I really like Starting Pistol Giggle Chorus reminds me of her older songs and makes me feel like I'm in high school again!

The previews are a little bit boring though Sad Only Honey sounds interesting

^ Welcome back! Giggle

After listening to the album I can say that I like it a lot more than I initially thought I would. The only song that I absolutely can't stand is Make Up, the rest is either good or okay (but still listenable). In my opinion the album is something that the people who like her older stuff can enjoy (e.g. Frog Flag, Hibi Ikiteireba, Monochrome) as well as the people who like her recent electronic style (Watashi, Queen, Tokyo Sanpo) which is a good thing I guess. There's something for everyone!
I think her lyrics are slowly getting more interesting again too.
My only complaint would be that none of the songs are downright amazing. Even though I like the majority of them, I doubt that any of them will be added to my list of favorite Ai-chan songs anytime soon.
The only songs I REALLY love are FrogFlag and Hibi Ikiteireba - I still want her to release a full album in that style someday Mad Swing music and jazzy stuff suits her so well.

I'm just back from the dead to say that this album is horrible hahaha.

I only like Honey and Sakuraharahara No

The "electronic" tracks sound so cheap.
