Such an elegant feel.... Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I constantly hear from people that this is Ayu's best album. But to be honest, I don't really share that adoration. I mean, don't get me wrong! I agree with them...to an certain extent. I mean, I feel as if Ayu has had better albums than this one. Albums like "(Miss)Understood" "Secret" "Duty" and "Rainbow" were excellent! We shouldn't shadow everything else because this one is her well-known album in the Western world.
Ugh. I sound like I'm degrading this album! And I'm NOT trying to do that! I'm just trying to say she has other great albums in my opinion. I mean, I love this album just as much. Utter perfection from our goddess, Ayu. This was the first album that showed the evolution in Hamasaki's lyrics. She was slowly escaping from the themes of "loneliness & confusion" and moving to the concepts that focused on "faith and world peace". Quite an remarkable achievement if you asked me.
I also noticed that this album had a more gentle tone within it. Almost as if Ayu were trying to bring the world together after the terrible events that happened (9/11) in the Western world. *Laughs* Now that I think about it, maybe that's the reason why people LOVE this albums so much. And if that's the case...then I guess it's alright. The songs were heartfelt and soothing. There wasn't a single track I disagreed with. But my absolute favorites are: "I am" "Evolution" "Connected" "UNITE!" "Naturally" "Dearest" "NEVER EVER" "Daybreak" "M" "Still Alone" and finally "No more words".
Although I don't agree it's her best album, I do feel I understand why people love this album. I mean, I love it too. Come on, it's Ayu. Her music never disappoints me. I've been a fan of hers for quite some time.
A good add for your AYU collection.

Fantastic! Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
There are many fantastic songs on this CD with great original melodies. My favorite tracks are "Evolution", "M", "Dearest", "Never Ever", "Unite!" and "Connected". I however was a bit dissapointed that "Endless Sorrow" was put together on the same track with another great song, forcing you to wait or fast forward for the other song to begin.

Perfect, But... Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
It's only #2 on my list of Ayu albums. I eagerly anticipated listening to the whole album because of everyone's high reviews of it, saying that it's her best and all that. The first track ("I am...") wasn't the perfect beginning song (it should have been in the middle of the album), but it was still a good song. UNITE! wasn't what I expected...I expected something extremely upbeat, still good. Evolution is my favorite Ayu song, always has been from the first day I heard it long long ago. Naturally, NEVER EVER, and still alone are great. Daybreak was good, but somehow the vocals in the first couple of verses didn't quite match the music... I LOVE M. A Song is born is wonderful. Dearest and no more words happened to be the first two Ayu songs I heard (well, duh, they were 'Inuyasha' themes), so they have a special place in my heart. The remix of Endless sorrow is much better than the original, I must admit. Overall, the only weak tracks are I am... and Daybreak, but they don't affect the perfection of the album. This is the album to get after you get "Duty."

AYU AYU AYU AYU Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10

So wonderful album with great songs and my favourite is M. The lyrics are great and some songs are slow and some are fast. So great with a new version of Endless Sorrow and a bonus hidden song. As always Ayu makes the best music and lyrics and almost always the remixes are great and worth having. Buy it now and enjoy Ayu again.
