Personally, I am glad I bought the regular edition, because 'HIGH AND LOW' is my favourite song on the single, though I certainly can't complain about the other two! 'Hana', just as the title seems to suggest, is ostentatious, but in a good way. It's a song with light, catchy verses and a melodic chorus that, sooner or later, gets stuck in your head. 'SLEEPWALKER', in contrast, is just about the opposite: it has a much darker, grungier sound, and provides a good transition between it and the two other songs on the single. The last song, after all, 'HIGH AND LOW', is catchy like 'hana', but darker, like 'SLEEPWALKER'. I immediately loved the song when I heard it, and was especially impressed with the drum/guitar solo in it. On the whole, it's a very interesting listen because each song is quite different, and their technique has only gotten better with this sort of experimentation.

High And Low
I really, really can't express how much I love this single. Honestly, when I first got the single, High and Low was the only song I really liked xD' but, as I listened to it through a few times, both Hana and Sleepwalker grew on me. I really love the somewhat heavier/darker sound of Sleepwalker. Of course, the chorus comes around and it sounds a bit more... happy? xD High and Low makes me want to dance, which is probably why I liked it so much when I first heard it.
This is the last single of Alice nine to date. "hana" is very good song, but teh b-side song "High and low" is so cool!!!!!!!!!!
