I FINALLY got my CDs!! Ok it’s a long story but to summarize, my parents waited until 3-4 pm and they left the house, then the postman came at 5.45pm! I was refreshing my Speedpost tracking, and at about 5.50pm, I saw “Delivery Failure”! My heart dropped LOL~ I was so upset. Then I called up Singpost and they said I could collect the package from the HQ from 8-9pm. So, I did not go to Kino today, instead I went to Paya Lebar juz to collect this package!

When the guy came out with my package, my heart sank again, coz it was juz a package, NO HARD TUBE!! So sad, so sad, but when I reached home and opened the package, there were the posters actually, wrapped around the cds!! LOL~ and they were FOLDED into 6!!! OMG >_< but better than nothing rite?



First thing I did was to open the CD+DVD and played the DVD lol~ I started KYAAAAAAAAA~~~ing so hard when I saw the Ho! Summer Saipan off-shots! These shots are the best! DA BEST! So kawaiii, although it was so freaking short!! And I also love the Izumocon rehearsals and backstage footages too!! Sugoi~~ but I din really like Takki’s hair then so I wasn’t too particularly kyaaing during the concert footages itself (I prefer Go!Con’s LOL~). Here’s a shot from the Ho! Summer track. Tsubasa looks good in this track too, but Takki is like… *DIES* I’ve said this many times, but this guy here looks so good close up! How can anyone do that? (my brother says it’s unfair LOL~~~) And this will be the only pic I’m posting from the DVD. Please BUY the album hehe! Arigato~

Album Songs

Generally, I like the songs in this album more than 2wenty 2wo’s (though my favourite T&T song is from 22 — Tremolo). I’m going to do a one-by-one review/thoughts on it here.

#1 ラブラッキー (Love Lucky)
This song grows on me. There were the stereo effects at one point that wasn’t captured during the ToBase radio version of coz, so it sounded much better on CD. I love the verses a lot~ and the chorus is still really catchy, it’s the kind that will keep repeating in your head all day long.

#2 Venus
This is the very first song I heard of T&T’s. And I remember liking it the first time I heard it. It is a nice song even if we’ve heard it for the n~th time. It’s their best-selling single and the furitsuke is famous. LOL~ Btw, I’ve always thought it sounds Ricky Martin-ish :P

#3 Ho! サマー (Ho! Summer) ~Album Version~
LOL~ is there any difference from the single version? Apart from the missing waves sound, nothing’s changed desho? Ho! Summer is like Venus to me, although we’ve heard it for the n~th time, it’s a nice song to me, a song I liked the first time I heard it. Like Venus, everytime I hear it, I’ll think of the furitsukes~

#4 夏の風 (Natsu no Kaze)
OMG I LOVE THIS SONG!! Kimi ga.. Kimi ga… Boku wa.. Boku wa.. I like the change of key from intro chorus to verse to chorus again etc etc. Fell in love with this song the very first time I heard it ♥ ♥ ♥

#5 Black Butterfly
Catchy song and cute! haha. I like everything about this song including Takki’s vocals haha, except for the ending part where they put his voice thru that fake filter (I don’t really like those kind of effects). But the chorus is very cute lol~ I can’t find another word for the song but “cute”. And I especially like the way Takki sings “Every Day Every Night” lol~ Don’t ask me why, I have no idea as well *baka me* I was wondering what “Glowing Glowing…” until I saw the lyrics haha…

#6 Slave of Love
Okay~ I’ve decided this is my favourite Tsuba solo… I love the intro beat, and Tsuba’s vocals very nice as usual. I REALLY love the music and tune of this song! Juz realised that there’s also an “Every Day” and “Every Night” LOL~

#7 Mermaid
Probably my second least favourite of this album. Somehow I tink the music and instruments used for the intro resembles one of Tsubasa’s dance songs last time but I can’t remember what song it is! And I don’t like the trumpet lol~ The only part I like is the last phrase of the chorus =)

#8 仮面 (Kamen)
To be honest, I didn’t really like this song when I first heard it. Actually it was also the first time I watched the performance. But when it got to the chorus, I thought “Oh it’s quite catchy” lol. But I love, love, love the performances. Kakkoii dance~ This song GROWED (a lot) on me. I love this song now! Somehow I ALWAYS associate Go! Con with Kamen! dunno why lol~

#9 Rainy Memories
I think the tune of this song is quite nice. But somehow the music seem funny. And I think if the music is arranged differently, it might have sounded better.

#10 12月の花 (Juunigatsu no Hana)
I think I can go on and on about this song~~ ♥ ♥ ♥ Of coz, Takki being the one who wrote it makes it all the more special… And I’m so in love with the concert version to begin with hehe… First time I heard this CD version, I was thinking “concert version sounds better (tho CD version is longer)” lol~ but when I replayed it right after, I think I changed my mind lol~ I think it’s coz I’ve heard the concert version too many times so I’m too used to it. This CD version has a totally new 2nd verse lol~ And of coz it’s not as echoey as the con that’s why his voice sounds clearer and more ‘in front’. I like the piano at the start, then the drums and everything came in quite suddenly for the chorus (had quite a shock lol~) and I heard the background vocals sing “you the flower december”. Oh, probably the only part I din really like is a bit of background vocals during the music bridge. Takki sounds more relaxed while singing this version, I’ll definitely get very used to this version coz it gets better and better with each listening. Er… I like it when he sang the words “Juunigatsu no hana…” LOL~

#11 愛想曲 (Serenade)
This IS a nice song! And it is the 2nd T&T song that I heard. And I remember playing it on repeat mode on YouTube (when I first got into T&T earlier this year). I don’t know why this is their worst selling single coz I actually think it’s one of their nicer singles. Anyway, I like them wearing the red jacket (like in the PV, though I don’t like Takki’s hair in it — okok, gomen, I’m digressing again) and swinging their rose sticks lol~

#12 Hey!! Listen to the Music
This is my least favourite song of the album, I think. Or is it Mermaid? Anyway, one of these 2 la~ I dunno why but it’s probably not my type of song… But it’s quite lively and probably good for concert… sometimes opinions of songs can change becoz of concert versions (Diamond is the best example lol~) Somehow this song reminds me “Ai Shigatari” and “Ai! Check it”. Fortunately there’s only one of these kind of songs in this album, probably a big reason why I prefer [2U4U] to [22].

#13 サヨナラの向こう (Sayonara no Mukou)
I LOVE THIS SONG!! It reminds me of Michi~ And it’s a guitary song!!! This is juz what I wanted when I first knew about the album. It’s like a combination of Michi & Tremolo. ♥ ♥ ♥

#14 Venus ~Eurobeat Remix~
Minna, juz get up and dance the para para!! xD

#15 夢物語 (Yume Monogatari) ~ Christmas Version~
Honestly, like Takki, Christmas isn’t really that special to me, but it IS a special occasion, so somehow you feel more love flowing around during that period rite? Hmm, my mind is drifting away… towards the christmas con… *whacks self* Ok, well, I guess they use the same kind of instruments as Starry Sky, which is supposedly a christmas song. I guess I do like this version. But of coz the original version is “the” classic ya! This one sounds more relaxed… with some muttering at the end of the track LOL~

#16 カッコつかないTonight (Kakko Tsukanai Tonight) *Bonus*
I really like this track! Though the music sounds like Ho! Summer, after listening to it many times, I don’t link it to Ho! Summer anymore LOL~ The chorus is catchy and RETRO! like those “a-go-go” era LOL~

Now for the mood dampener… [2U4U] sales dropped to #5 on the 3rd day. At this rate, T&T will never ever have their #1 album! This juz puts a hole through my heart. I was so happy after getting my discs, but after coming online and seeing the ranking, my heart sank! It’s like a rollercoaster ride today… Full rips of the album are up at *certain* places already. I don’t wanna go there and make myself unhappy again. Please buy the album, at least buy one version? Yes, get the CD+DVD version! And I wish people will stop putting up rips for others to download! It’s so freaking depressing…Looking to better things tomorrow~ going Kino to collect my Oricon Style & TV Guide, after work!

[EDIT:] I was re-watching the DVD before I left for work this morning~ and kept repeating the Ho! Summer off-shots (my dad said Takki looks very ‘ang moh’ – westernized, and my mom kept commenting on Takki’s legs lol~~), and Izumocon backstage part where Takki played with the little kitten – the way he holds the kitten wa kawaii~~ erm, what was the kitten doing beneath his legs? lol~~ *whacks self again*. I also like Tsubasa in the hood & Takki in his beannie thingie~~ reminds me of the Takki surprise appearance during Tsubasa’s con last yr – I think he was wearing the same jacket too! Only thing missing was the black framed specs xD

And I’m listening to the Karaoke CD for the first time now. Juunigatsu no Hana’s background vocals (for the verses) were done by Takki :) Awww, it’s really such a nice song!!! And I’ve just listened to the radio shows, and to be honest, I don’t understand the bulk of it~  hehe… Gomen ne, I juz made this super long post EVEN LONGER X_X

    LOL TOTALLY agree w/ u on all of ur song reviews! esp Junigatsu no Hana. i simply can NOT stop replaying that song… i dunno i like Mermaid + HEY! LISTEN TO THE MUSIC… i guess its cause it gets me into Con-mode everytime i listen to it XDD Natsu no Kaze = AS GORGEOUS AS MICHI. and Slave of Love – this song is my fav Tsubie solo too!! ^__^ i ESP loved his [SC] Slave of Love perf he did a while back…

    yeah i have oricon as my homepage right now…i almost stabbed myself in the heart when i checked it this morning T___T no use. people simply will never understand until the same tragedy happens to their fav artists.

  2. Sarah says:

    cd ripped ALREADY?!?!? NOOOOOooooo!!!!
    i am SO ready to start crying already…. seriously =( thats how much they mean to me..

  3. ribi says:

    Well, Michelle, the funniest thing yesterday was after I went home a second time to check before going out with my friend to get TV Guide was that after I left my house, the Speedpost van came (around 1pm). And I saw the Speedpost van while I was at the bus stop so I wondered, “Is the van coming with my cds?”

    It turned out that it was. *lol*

    And after celebrating friends’ birthday, I got home only around 12 plus am this morning. So I could only open the package, kyaa~ed at it for a while and then died in bed. That was the best sleep since I had in days coz I couldn’t sleep much at all from 14th-16th, worrying about our cds. *loser*

    As for the posters, mah mah, I sorta guessed it may happen but I didn’t tell you coz the same thing happened to me last time with my Gackt poster. He came folded into 8 and the crease was just at his FACE. *bleah*
    The good thing this time was that the creases were not at Tackey nor Tsubasa’s face so yay! ^^
    I have spread them out on the floor and am using a heavy wooden plank to flatten the crease out to reduce their intensity. It’s working so far. ^^

    I haven’t got time to do anything with the cds/dvds yet (except rip my cds to put into my mp3 player) though I have heard the full Kakko Tsukanai Tonight. I think the second part is nicer – the holding hands together lyrics – mah, TxT should have performed that and held hands in Msute. That would have killed me! ;p

    It’s a overall good day for us ne? :p

  4. michelle says:

    Bonnie! the posters thing was so… x_X guess ribi also feels the same, she got hers from HMV too… ah, and “hey!! listen to the music” actually sounded nicer each time. i like it more than those few songs in 22 (actually i think it’s more like Pride the End? <- I don't particularly like this song b4 i watch the harucon lol). Slave of Love was fantastic!! *HUGS AND CRIES* as usual, it's the ones who rip and upload that piss me off la~~~ not only at jpopsuki, but elsewhere as well :(

  5. michelle says:

    RIBI!! yea, still a good day la~ happy that the discs are finally here lor! ya that holding hands part.. i was juz telling kiwi-chan last nite that they should hold hands while singing hahahahaha…………… in addition to the ‘facing each other and almost kissing’ part at the start, this song will kya us to death! haa…

    ahh.. it works? i think i better ask my mom for those yellowpages to try ironing out the creases..

  6. akatsuru01 says:

    Hey Mic-chan~

    Well, u already know my reaction from chatting w/you on gmail. lol (well, not ALL of my reaction…lol!) Nyway, first reaction I had when I went on your webbie (Fri. eve.) I kyaaaaaaaaa-ed, took a breath and went ‘aaahhh!’ O_O I was alone in my room (my hubby took out my daughter for awhile, so it was nice for a change).

    Had the same reaction as u about ‘Love Lucky.’ Didn’t get my cds yet, but I’m sure I will soon.

    Listened to it from Rekomen awhile back from Bonnie’s site when she had the link posted. At first, thot it was too ‘rock-ish’ for my style but, after listening to it over n over n over many times, it grew on me SO MUCH!! I really love ‘Love Lucky’ now. Even tho it’s ‘rockish’, I actually think it suits T&T. With their older, more mature-sounding voices to them, the song has them sound more masculine and quite SEXY. (esp. when they both say ‘Yeah!’ at the very end of the song…OMG @_@…talk about ♥SEXXXY ♥!!!!

    I can SO see them singing this song (and ‘Kakko Tsukanani Tonight’) @ their con. ^.^

    And, I SO like ‘Kakko Tsukanai Tonight’ too!! Talk about almost ‘Ho!Summer’-ish, at first, but…after awhile, it’s pretty RETRO-sounding now. lol Can totally c them sing this @ their con too. *sigh* Too bad I can’t attend.

    But, I had an idea. I jus might ‘maybe’ try going next year to one of the Nat’l Tour locations. Gunma – March 24 – TxTcon there. Well, my b-day is March 23 so…hmmm…jus had an idea to go, perhaps?? O_O What do u think?

  8. DiTHeRs says:

    Tackey’s cap ga sukiiii!!!! I was watching the DVD over and over and happy to see Tackey looking fresh and happy. Tsuba too. They both looked good on the outtakes. It was very nice of Avex to include that ‘We are TxT’ song on the IzumoCon takes. Very cute (^__^) And I was thinking where was Tsuba when Tackey was playing with the kitty *lol*

    For this album, I love ’12gatsu no hana’ the most, then ‘Slave of Love’, ‘Black Butterfly’, ‘Rainy Memories’ (*lol* that covers all of the solos). For the unit song, I love ‘Sayonara no mukou’ and ‘Natsu no Kaze’. I have to listen to a lot ‘Hey! Listen to the music’ still….

  9. wribbit says:

    Yay!! *HUGS*

    ahem… about the kitten~
    My thoughts exactly when I saw that part fufufufu
    the kitten was so sniffing his crotch!!!!
    And I was kinda hoping to see Tsu appear, and see if he is really as scared of cats as Takki always said

  10. keigi says:

  11. Reiko says:

    Ehh, Mic-chan…noticed at the univ. where I go on their comps, their travel agency…shoot!! Japan round trip is now btwn $200-300bucks!! Wished I could jus ‘jet off’ next month w/you guys to the TxTcon since the airplane fare rates are sooo yasui! O_O Oh well… -_- And, wouldn’t have a hotel room anyways. Aren’t a lot of places to stay at are sold out?? And, I dun have a con tkt too. lolz So, tis ok… Maybe Nat’l Tour ne? lolz I’ll have to see… I got another proposition from my parents. They want my hubby & I and our daughter to join them on a cruise to Hawaii!!!! It’s w/Norweign Cruise Line, I think. It’s the largest ship on the fleet right now and it goes to all the Hwn Islands for 7 days. We SO wanna go next summer cuz we STILL hadn’t taken our ‘honeymoon’ yet! lolz We ARE seriously thinking of joining them, actually. (and our Washington State trip next May too; wanna see/visit Bonnie too then!)

  12. michelle says:

    ya ya!! when i was watching the kitten part for the first time last nite, i told my bro (who happened to be watching too) immediately “tsubasa is scared of cats!” hahahaha~ or maybe tsuba’s only scared of grown up ‘cats’, rather than kittens? i personally think kittens are really cccuuuutteee, but when they grow older… then… hmm…

    ~Ling, wahahaha… the kitten sniffing his crouch!!! that’s SO true, like he doesn’t want to get out of there hahahahahaha….

    ~DiTHers, i have the same favourites as you!! ALL of them! lol~~ 12gatsu no hana,

    ~Keigi, the posters came with ALL versions, as long as they are ‘first press’. from what i know, the first press for CD+DVD is sold out at cdjapan but first press for the other editions are still available there. HMV doesn’t indicate if first press is still available. For 2U4U, there are 3 versions. 1) CD+DVD, 2) Limited Edition (this comes with a karaoke cd which has a T&T radio show), and 3) Regular Edition (this comes with the bonus track, Kakko Tsukanai Tonight). hope that clears it :)

    ~Reiko, it’ll be gr8 if you can make it to one of the shows! I definitely can’t go. it’s too close to this trip and i’ve run out of cash already… sigh.. i want to strike 4D/Toto!!!! damn, i must go and buy first, if not won’t even have chance to strike haha

  13. michelle says:

    i labelled my discs too, it’s at the bottom keke! and that white piece of paper? i have no idea also wor. it’s stuck on each cd wrapper haha.. oh my mom says girl-girl also lor. but that was last time. she say he very handsome last time (majo no jouken time). but i said he’s still very handsome now haha. but my dad thinks he looks really good. he always says he looks like beckham, dunno why also, he keep saying takki shudn’t waste his looks, he shud hurry go and act in some international movie lol~ and act as beckham in his biography or something (my dad is quite funny la)

    and my bro rite, at first said his acting is ‘alright’ until he watched yoshitsune (the episode that tsuba appeared) then i finally hear him say out that takki is a ‘good actor’ and that he has ‘improved a lot’ lol. i was really happy to hear that lor.

    ya i agree abt the hard copy thing, that’s also one reason why i buy the magazines although i already have the softcopy. ah, but it’s so ex.. no problem at all la, i’m glad to help, girl…. and let me know when u wan to meet la.. no hurry, see when u free or how urgent u want the discs lor (i think u have 2 x 2u4us + DB + Yumemo + 3 x folded-into-6-parts-posters with me hehe. juz msg or email me k. and thanks for the “mushy” post hahahahaa…. *HUGS*

    yes,do help me burn..and SC Premium keke too. ((=

    hmm..i tot tht’s a disneyland photobook?lol =p tht’s wht they call it,desho?

  21. michelle says:

    shuduck, i think the seller rite, u can actually ask her how much she wants as a service fee lor, then see if u’re willing to pay her for it.. otherwise then juz buy from diff seller? i bought once from china seller.. but until now i haven’t gotten the goods yet so… still waiting la…

    oh i dun think it’s the disneyland photobook wor. it’s juz a taiwan published picture book wif colored and non-colored pictures and a bit of writing (takki’s diary or something like that) towards the back. it’s the majo no jouken era so most of the writings are based on that show…

  22. shuduck says:

    duck, i think akibado shud be trustworthy, bon’s got stuff from there before ya? they do take a long time i think.. and i know YJA is pretty complicated. the price u see there isn’t what u finally will get. coz there’s bank transfer charges and shipping charges in addition to the winning price. as for the china seller, i dunno unless u gimme the link haha… but i haven’t gotten my stuff from my china seller yet.. but she said she received my money already. so.. juz waiting for it. hopefully it’ll arrive soon. so far, taiwan auctions is the most tedious, coz most of them can’t read english so have to type in chinese.

    u type in chinese? keke =p
    i m so lazy, i juz hv a big selfish thinking in my head that everyone shld noe n understand basic englishhhhh muahahaa. anyway i tried my luck w emailing tonnes of china sellers muahaha. wht else..until i m confused.!
    basically, she/he is worried i over-buy bt i told her i wun cos her stuff alone is too ex..n not worth it..bt bo pian,as i need her help..so..i m waiting for her 2 sign up paypal n den i pay everything..
    yep..often,we’ll all tink buying things frm china is rather reasonable n cheap yo bt end up, it’s almost as ex as anywhere. this seller wants USD$…n cos she mentioned/explained 2 me d bank of china’s exchange rate, the shipping rate, per ems fee rate frm other sellers’items,overweight item, overall shipping, overall ems postage, paypal service fee etc…..tsk tsk…i regretted then…bt it’s too late…i din realise earlier n i was too ‘high’ over the moon..thinking i will get my freelanc pay soon..but had last-min things 2 crop up alwaz as usual T_T

    actually china and hk sellers know english more than taiwan, generally, i mean. those that i met in china and hk all can type english.. but the one in taiwan can’t.. so i had to type out in chinese, which is quite a hassle for me… tedious la~~ actually it’s not true that everything from china is cheap. actually the stuff i bought from china is ex too, after including shipping…

    i haven’t even gotten my pay this month yet and i’m already “in debt” lol~~~
