        Awesome single 5

        'Truth' ist a very catchy song, it's different from Arashi's usual songs. It was originally for the Drama Maou staring Arashi member Ohno Satoshi and it suited the drama very much, not only the lyrics but also the tune, they had this kind of darkish aura. The song has lots of violin and piano melody. 'Kaze no muko e' is a rather calm song compared to 'Truth'. A really good Arashi single.

        Awesome!! 5

        I love this single!! One of the best one Arashi has created ^_^ "Truth" is very addicting to listen.

        LINDO!! 3

        this is one of the best albums this band's ever realesed, beautiful music and great lyrics. Every Arashi Fan needs to have one

        A great dual-a single 5

        A pretty cd and case combined with three great songs. Both 'Smile' and 'Kaze no Mukou e' are upbeat and very fresh while 'Truth' is a high-tension, darker sound that sets your pulse racing. It's already number one single for the year on the Oricon charts after only a few weeks of availibility, too. If you have a choice of singles from Arashi's 2008 releases this should be the one.
