      Great new songs, and mixes of the same songs.

      Her fisrt solid ballad since Heaven 5

      Right from the get go this single snags your attention. Ayu's vocals are fantastic on all three songs and it's a serious improvment to her last single Sunrise/Sunset-Love Is All. You classic Ayu at her best. It's completely original and her spotless vocals are enhanced on the Music Box Re-Mix which is simple yet lovely. Ballad was a charming surprise. It's got a classical Japanese feel to it but happens to be her best ballad since Heaven. It has been a long time since Ayumi has released a ballad of this quality. Red Line~for TA is another nice surprise and I have a hard time picking which of the three songs is my favorite. Red Line~for TA has a sweet upbeat sound to it that reminds me of the song Next Level from her last album. And it's always a bonus that the packaging happens to be one of the most beautiful ever released on an Ayu single. If you were turned off by her last single then don't be afraid to pick this cd up. It's one of a kind.

      My Favourite Winter-y song 5

      Yes.Ayu didn't disappoint me.You were... is extremely nice and BALLAD is a very nice ballad song.As expected,Red Line~for TA~ is a suitable song as the ending song for concerts.the cover is beautiful,the alternate cover is nice and the songs are all really good.thumbs up,ayu!
