...hmm, it seemed like they were building up the last track for a while there 'ONE MORE LEFT!' so I admit it, I was hoping for a self-composed track. Still. Ready to go! 64 days doesn't seem long at all.

EDIT: Maybe he'll post about it on his twitter? http://twitter.com/roundkitagawa he definitely had a squee about DOWN TOWN when it was aired. Fingers crossed! I do like it when people twitter, Utada Hikaru keeps posting up very interesting bits and pieces. I wouldn't want Maaya to do it though *my preciousssssssssssssss* XD

The cover single was well worth it to me, and actually a better value than Everywhere.
You can't compare a single wich only have 3 songs that are actualy covers and a best album with 30 melodies composed for her. :-/
Sure I can... The reason why I said the cover single was a better value is because I already own almost all of Maaya's previous cds. Everywhere was basically 1 new song and 2 new rearrangements. And even if covers aren't original songs, I felt Maaya performed all of them quite well.

手紙 (tegami, “Letter”)
lyrics: Maaya Sakamoto; music: Katsutoshi Kitagawa; sound produced by: Katsutoshi Kitagawa

So by the numbers we have:

Total tracks: 12
Tracks with Maaya lyrics: 8
Previously released tracks: 2
Tracks composed by Maaya: 0 (let's admit it, we were at least a little hopeful)
Days until release: 64
I assume you are including Utsukushii Hito in the count of previously released tracks. I'm just glad this time the song is being released on cd instead of only for mobile phones (in Japan).

And dangit... what's up with this new forum software? It keeps concatenating my posts. :P

If the album songs end up being awesome, this will actually be a better value CD due to the higher number of new tracks than Kazeyomi (which had a whole bunch of singles to it's name) which is quite nice to look forward to. A bit like 'Lucy' only having two tracks from a single. Nice one.

Looking forward to the album...60 days isn't so long!

Not QUITE sure how Utsukushii Hito is going to fit in behind DOWN TOWN to be honest...unless Kimi no Sei will somehow make it feel less disjointed...

"Disjointed" might be the rule and not the exception for this album. Unless I'm missing something, every track has a different composer and arranger. Keeping a consistent sound through 12 tracks, all from different people, is probably close to impossible. With Kazeyomi (and even Yuunagi Loop, as experimental as it was) it was two or three tracks per composer/arranger.

Also, no English tracks (apparently). I was about to comment that it's her first full-length release without an English track, but looking through the discography, I see that Yuunagi Loop has that distinction.

There will be an online 'listening party' for the new album on the 20th December 2010. I'm not sure what they mean when they say it's open to 120 groups of 240 people? Anyway! The people who can listen to the album will be chosen by lottery when they apply using their mobile phones. Only AU phones though, sorry.

But Maaya herself will be participating in the listening party too.

They're really hyping up the PR machine for this album.

Sorry, didn't understand... What do you mean by 'PR' ? Pre-Release ?

so after watching downtown, i had the this idea.. speaking of why downtown has to be put in the album, because it resembles the image of this album... just imagine downtown pv and relate it with the title of the album.. :D

looking at latest sounds and pvs, i'd say i have to agree with dilly's statement... the management are pushing hard to make maaya among the line of pop stars.. i just hope they'll not overdo it..
okay i have to admit that i like seeing maaya in sexy dress and make drooling pose but i surely don't want seeing maaya end up being like koda kumi for instance.. lol how is that even possible :P

but i guess u understand what i had in mind...

well at least with the existence of utsukushii hito, there's a little bit of artistic touch that ive been looking for some time.. :P
not that maaya's latest releases are lacking with artistic touch though,.. there's still songs like ao no ether, colors or kotomichi for instance

utsukushii hito after downtown is like watching a samurai dorama *forget what it is being called* after watching your regular 60-70's series :dodgy:
just close your eyes and follow your HEART --> vanished to dust T.

Not sure where they found it but COMA http://ykms.eco.to has a complete credits list on their front page. You can see the names (in Japanese) and the instruments each are accredited with (in English) over there.

Most interesting one is 'Stand up, girls' with clapping and castanets listed haha
