YesAsia Editorial Description

Still standing firm and calmly representing all the top criteria for standard J-pop songs, Hamasaki Ayumi releases her 30th single!

Known as chameleon of the music scene, fans were desperate to find out what her next artistic stroke would be after the release of her summer atmosphere filled hit "&". The answer is on the cover of her latest work "forgiveness" that shows her in a pondering pose within a bed of flowers. It has already become the theme song of the TBSTV series "Welcome to the Highland" whose original version dates back to 1976. The new adaptation features Igawa Haruka among other artists.

My absolute favorite ballad by Ayumi Hamasaki Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
There are no words to describe how gorgeous this song is. It sounds absolutely heavenly and the vocals are amazing, though I'm not a huge fan of buying "singles" (I'd rather wait for the albums to come out), I really recommend buying this. This single came out in 2003 and there isn't a version of the single+DVD. The music video is gorgeous and if you really want it, you have to buy her mini album called
Memorial Address (CD+DVD version). I will be buying that version because the PV is gorgeous and I love her other songs on that album, but for those who just want the song, I recommend this. "Hanabi" is another gorgeous ballad as well (watch her perf of it during her Taipei 2009 tour, it's amazing).

Excelent! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I really thought that this song was gorgeous! Other reviews say that it's not her best ballad, but it's my favorite of hers so far. I think Ayu did a wonderful job with this song, and I love it. I strongly reccomend it to anyone and everyone.
