Don't know if anyone else noticed, but Victor Ent. also posted the track list for the LE dvd here. The 3 tracks names are identical to ones on the cd, so not sure which one is the short movie. Well I'll guess it's the second track.
  1. Driving in the Silence
  2. Sayonara Santa
  3. Driving in the Silence -reprise-

It's a typo on CD Japan. The info and track listings on Victor Ent. / flying dog web site make it clear only the LE includes the dvd.

Quite likely this is the poster you pre-orders for the album will end up with:

NSFW link by the way: http://www.getchu.com/soft.phtml?id=718684

The smaller picture under the cover :)

You really should point out that site is NSFW. ;)
If getchu is correct, it's the same image used for one of the album covers, as seen on the Victor Ent / flying dog site.

I totally didn't even notice!!

Previews of some of the album tracks are out:

http://www.jvcmusic.co.jp/flyingdog/-/D ... ZL-33.html

The clip of 'driving in the silence' itself as a track doesn't really give much of an impression but I love the sound of all the other tracks. Especially 'Melt the snow in me' - it sounds really interesting...and it's in English!! 'Chikai' is the song composed by Maaya - wasn't expecting it to sound like that!

I'm really impressed with Rasmus and Frida on 'sayonara santa' and 'melt the snow in me'. I really didn't have high expectations after cruising them on Youtube but...it works. The tracks sound great.

omg, i really love "Melt the snow in me", it's been a while since Maaya sang in english, and "Chikai", it really sounds nice, and the song has some Yoko Kanno feeling in it, maybe Maaya's influenced by her^^

Could someone transcribe the lyrics of Melt the snow in me?

EDIT: Actually I managed to understand almost everything ^^:
Staring deep into the winter night
The crystal ground reflects the glimmering light
Let me hide me all this empty weight (need help here I think :p)
And see
Only I can melt the snow in me

You arrived
You saved me from the fading stars
And the light you gave me filled my empty heart
Then you gently left my frozen tears away
Saviour isn't meant to day (someone help me for this one ^^)

I've been listening repeatedly to this song extract this morning and I'd really want to know what she's singing :) (I'm not catching every word)

Anyway, I really really love this song: English, and the way she's singing warm high notes!

I think I may like this album better than You can't catch me in which I liked only 3 songs (Himitsu, Utsukushii Hito and Tegami): for now there's this song I really love, Chikai seems pretty good, Driving in the Silence seems maybe a little boring but I think we need the full version to correctly evaluate it, and Sayonara Santa is catchy too though I'm not too fond of the refrain...
