YesAsia Editorial Description

In March 2001, Hamasaki Ayumi released her first best-of album A Best. The album went on to sell over four million copies and maintains the record of being not only Ayu's best-selling record but also the sixth best-selling Japanese album of all time. To mark the 15th anniversary of this monumental J-pop album, A Best has been newly remastered from the original master tape for this special re-release.

Truly...A BEST! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This album has been in my possession for nearly twelve years. And from that experience, I can tell you right now that you’ll never tire from album that screams perfection!

Ayumi Hamasaki is truly a gifted artist. She has that overwhelming musical style that manages to impact my heart each and every time I listen to her. Do you know how awesome that is?! From the moment I received my copy of her greatest hits, I knew this was going to be an awesome CD.

And I was right! (^ω^)

The moment I pressed “play”…my brain automatically went to heaven! This melodies created on this album was exceptionally well done! There were so many different styles and sounds within this creation…and it absolutely astounded me.

There’s a reason this CD is one of the best-selling albums in Japanese music history. Ayu blended the most heartfelt ballads along with the perfect amount of classical J-pop. An interesting way to create things if you ask me! This was a beautiful CD that preserved her most classical hits that we’ll all appreciate until the end of time!

An absolute MUST for any AYU fan!

The "A" in "BEST" Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This album sold over 4 million copies and for a reason; all of Ayumi's hits from her debut up untill her 3rd studio album "Duty" are featured on the 16 tracks-counting album.

The first three tracks are re-sung. Normally, I'm not fond of a best album with new versions of the songs, but this time I'm glad she did it because I never got to grew into the voice she had around her debut.

Aside from the three remastered tracks, there are songs on this album, like "M" and "Boys & Girls", that sold more than a million copies when they were released as a single. More than enough reason to purchase a copy. Even today, 6 years later, "A BEST" remains as the sixth best selling album in Japan!

Be sure to also look into the "A BEST 2" series, two other recordbreaking albums by Ayumi.

Recommend A BEST 2 Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I love this album and yes, it is a brilliant collection...but if you honestly want "The Best Of Ayumi Hamasaki"...you should look into A BEST 2 -white- and A BEST 2 -black- editions...they are truly the collection to chose! However, this album is so wonderful to own if you're a diehard Ayu fan like me and must collect everything! =P She's brilliant. Simply put.
