i prefer in the evening rather than morning,... i guess...
however silent a morning is,.. it's still morning. :)

but anyway,... the piano is gorgeus and the pv is artistic with lighting, filter and all..... so overall, driving in the silence is amazing.. yet.. want some more *the exact feeling as tell me what the rain knows*

@sachia
it's in the bonus 8 min short movie.. contain driving in the silence pv and sayonara santa pv.. :D

Chikau is very impressive! before that I was wondering the song made by maaya herself this time may be the same style of Everywhere, but actually it's more like hikari are~

I really like sayonara santa, maaya's vocal and the lyrics are so cute XD~ and the PV is very beautiful!!! but hope they can do some PV with stories in it next time......

for me, this album is the best one since maaya left Yoko Kanno, at least until now~

I really, really love "Sayonara Santa." The lyrics are so poignant and bittersweet. You'd think she was talking about an old boyfriend, but because of the title, I wonder if she's actually addressing Santa Claus (who acts as a symbol of childhood innocence gone by)? Hmm!

A lot of the lyrics on this album are very easy for me to understand and translate, so I think I can get translations up pretty quickly. I finished the romaji last night and I kept having to stop myself from starting translations too, it was just too easy. (I stopped myself because I knew I didn't have time for both...)

I am waiting for Driving in the silence, Okaerinasai & A HAPPY NEW YEAR, I love those songs so much! Thanks for your translations. I remember when I read 03 and everywhere at your site, they made me cry xD

Finally, I've listened to it all.

I liked this album much more than YCCM. I like when Maaya also sings for the... dark side (?) hahah xD. I mean, Kyokuya, melt the snow in me <3...

I was really surprised with Chikai, it's one of my favourite tracks from this album! I would like maaya to compose a whole album herself ^^.

Tatoeba ringo ga te ni ochiru you ni... A song that in the beggining sounded nothing special, but then it turns to a really tender song! Feels my heart. I can see me listening this during a trip with wind in the face, haha. This one is my 1st favourite of the album.

Im so sorry to say i dont like sayounara santa... I don't dislike it, but it's not the style of happy melody i like. But loved the pv! so pretty!

I liked this new album! ^^
I regret no Kanno's song though, snif...

Is it me, or am I thinking that... Driving in the Silence means, driving in an Electric car?

I agree with you, I didn´t like Sayonara Santa too much, too sweet xD
I love the PV of both Driving in the silence and Sayonara Santa, Kotoshi Ichiban is so relaxing, I love Tatoeba ringo ga te ni ochiru you ni/homemade christmas, they put me in a good mood...
I didn´t like Kyokuya but I like melt the snow in me, and Chikai... I think everywhere is better, the Chikai chorus is weak when it starts...
Well, yes, Driving in the silence is better than YCCM, I think...

aa.. I'm dying to know the meanings of the songs.. but I guess, most of the songs in this albums were taken from some relationship scenes.

Sayonara Santa
Kyoku-ya
Chikai

Lyrics translations up! I think Frecklegirl mentioned she's busy studying for exams so I'll fill the translation gap for now with these ^^
