Really good Single! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I have to say, her last Single "Days / GREEN" wasn't a big Hit for me, and "Mirrorcle World" was just a Re-cut which was 2 minutes longer than the album Version, so I was very skeptical as I read she's going to release a new Single in 2009 and my prospects was low. But I failed U_U... This Single is brilliant! "RULE" is a Rockish Song and the perfect Song for Dragonball Evolution. Unfortunately, the song is after hearing it 4 or 5 times a bit boring and annoying, but still a highly recommend song ^_^! "Sparkle" is my favourite from the 2 Songs. It's really techno-like and stay easily in your had, really catchy! And Ayu looks so sexy and beautiful in the CM! The Remixes are also interesting and stand easily in your head, but I'm not the biggest fan of Remixes... I always want a new B-Side, but thats the way ayu's Singles are...
As you can see, this is a highly recommend Single! Be sure to buy the CD+DVD because the PV of "RULE" is a good thing. I expected a little more action, but well... you can't have anything ^_^. It's still a good PV >_^.

Ayu ''Rule''s ! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Here we go with another excellent double a-side single! ''Rule'' is a catchy rock song and ''Sparkle'' is a dance track mixed with some rock very enjoyable. This edition comes with a remix and acoustic version of ''Days'', I 'm personally not too fond about the remix, I find it too rough for a ballad like ''Days'', instead the orchestra version is sublime. There are also two ''Rule'' remixes, I like both.

Very solid single Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
''Rule'' is a very catchy rock song and ''Sparkle'' is an interesting mix between rock and dance with a very nice melody. Excellent the ''Rule'' remixes and very nice the orchestra version and the remix for ''GREEN''. For the ones who loved ''GREEN'' is worth the money.

Please buy to support Ayu! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Although I don't like 'Rule' that much and the covers either, I bought the single to support Ayu's worldwide sales. 'Sparkle' seems to be very catching and I like this song a lot.

It's unfair that avex trax made 3 versions out of one single so that they can make more money but well, can't help it.

Anyway, the single seems to be quite good so please buy it to support our Ayu!
