YesAsia Editorial Description

J-pop diva Hamasaki Ayumi has been relatively quiet in 2011. Now, she is finally releasing new music for the first time in 2011 with the mini-album Five. As the title suggests, the mini-album has five tracks, including the highly anticipated collaboration song Why…, featuring JUNO, the twin brother of JYJ's Junsu. Five also includes Another Song, Ayu's second collaboration with AAA's Urata Naoya, and progress, the theme song for the PS3 game Tales of Xillia.

This edition comes with a bonus DVD with music videos and making of for all five songs on the mini-album. Initial press comes with an access card with a unique serial number that will provide access to the streaming version of a documentary about Ayu's 2010-2011 concert tour, while supplies last (NOTE: Region restrictions may apply).

EPIC. Enough said. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I realized that I never reviewed this album I purchased and I'm here to make up for that.

First of all, I notice people are hating on this album because they feel it isn't as amazing as her previous mini album "Memorial address" but honestly...I feel as if that answer doesn't excuse their reasoning. I mean, of course it's gonna be different. It was her first mini album in eight (at the time) years. Of course it won't be the same. And fans shouldn't use that as an excuse because if you're a true fan, that really shouldn't matter. Ayu is true artist. She's always working her butt off for her fans. So please don't compare things when it really shouldn't matter. Ayu's hard work should be enough.

Anyway I just wanna say this album was exceptationlly well-made! I just loved the raw emotion she poured into this album! In fact, now that I think about it, this mini album doesn't seem so mini to me. It was literally off the wall! *Laughs* Now...that was corny! xD But that's now I honestly feel about it! I loved ALL the songs! Especially "progress"! Such a pulse-pounding vibe!

This is a excellent add to your AYU collection! I mean, it's not "Memorial address", but come on! The quality she displayed here should be enough.

Great mini-album Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Let me start by saying that I have just recently (within the last year or so) gotten into ayumi's music. Many years ago I heard "Dearest" and loved it, but have not delved in to her other work until now. Based on the previews of this mini-album on YouTube, I decided to buy it because it sounded really nice.

I have just finished listening to the CD and it deserves a 5/5. The music is very typical of ayumi (which is good), and really sets a certain mood depending on the song. "Why" is my second favorite song on this album. It is a very nice duet, and the main chorus is very catchy. "Progress" is another great song from a video game, and it was my favorite on this album until I listened to the other songs. "Another song" is also nice, but is probably my least favorite on the album. It isn't bad, it just isn't as interesting as the others. Beloved is a very nice, slower song.

Overall this album is worth purchasing, especially if you are interested in ayumi hamasaki's music style.

I do not feel it is her best (Love Songs is up there), but it is a great mini album that will keep your attention (at least until her next album comes out).

FIVE Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I've read some reviews, and sad to say that alot are not reviews of true fans... I guess fans don't need review to tell them why they need to get this album.

I just wanted to say that the mini album is named FIVE because of the 5 songs written and released without fillers. But more meaningfully, the fonts used for the word FIVE also make the word HOPE, with the O being the heart shape made by the letter V.

So this album really means alot. It marks a very difficult time for Japan and Ayu. But it also tells everyone to lookout for LOVE & HOPE!

And as for the reviews on PV of progress, a stream of shots around the globe seamlessly tied together is no easy task. Yes, there's only very few sceens of Ayu, but PVs should not always be just the singer. Her presence should be felt in the music.

So I'd like to give a full thumbs up for this rounds work! it's just Amazing!

Not Her Best Work, But Still Good. Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Comparing Five to Memorial Address is kind of useless. For one Memorial Address was much better. That being said there might be some fans who are dissapointed with this release by Hamasaki. However there are some definate strong points in the mini album. Brilliante is just that, brilliant. It has a sort of Symphonic Metal(not gothic) effect to it with a strong choir singing a Gregorian chant in the background. Then merges that with a mid tempo ballad sort of sound. Beloved, another strong track, is a lovely classical ballad with piano arrangments. Progress is good, but perhaps not the best song on the album (IMO). It uses the sort of half rock half classical pop style that we heard previously in the song Blossom, but then builds more onto it using a heavy string arrangment. The two collaborations I felt were the weakest tracks on Five. ANother Song- Feat. Urata Naoya should have been titled ANother Song - Feat. Ayumi Hamasaki because Ayu barely sings in it. The song is totally dominated by Urata Naoya. Why is more what we could have expected. It's a soft mid tempo pop song in which Ayu and JUNO have equal singing parts. Both ANother Song and Why grew on me more over time but the first listen was rough.
The packaging is wonderful. Leslie Kee did an amazing job on the photography in the booklet. If you love the covers then you will love the rest of the booklet too. The PVS are quite different from anything Ayu has done before. Why has the prettiest PV (although some might argue that it is actually Brilliante that is the best). Why has an Alice In Wonderland theme to it with Ayu falling down into a dream world and shifting from small to very tall while Juno wears a Mad Hatter hat. Brilliante is hard to explain. Ayu appears to us as what appears to be an Egyption princess and at the end we see her cry tears of blood. I have come up with thoughts of everything from Cleopatra to Akasha from Queen Of The Damned, but truth be told, it is a very confusing, artistic PV. Beloved features what I can only think of as a Peter Pan theme with Ayu being shipwrecked on an island of children who crown her queen with a tiara made of flowers. ANother Song is perhaps one of the most boring PVS Ayu has ever done with her and Naoya dancing in a black room with a giant fan in the background. It reminds me more of something BoA might have done.
So there are some real highlights and lowlights here, but I would say that Five is well worth buying (if not just for Brilliante alone).

Not perfect Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
A huge step forward if I compare this mini-album to the previous one "Memorial Adress". I don't know why but, album after album, Ayu has begun to release songs which sounds too much all the same. "progess" and "beloved" are excellent songs but not that creative, "BRILLANTE" has a new sound for her, I'd define it a gothic ballad, but I don't like it very much. Probably the best song is "ANother SONG feat URATA NAOYA", because it sounds pretty good and new, almost R&B. "Why... feat. JUNO" is okay. It's the first time I don't give 10/10 to an Ayu's album, however "FIVE" is not bad, I only miss her perfection.
