    Just like a rainbow, July 2, 2005

    This review is from: Rainbow (Audio CD)
    This CD is beautiful
    1. Rainbow-Nothing really here N/A
    2. Everlasting Dream-Calm nicegoing melody, but way too short 8/10
    3. We Wish-Pretty energetic with a nice pop style to it 9/10
    4. Real Me-At first it sounded like a Destiny’s Child song, But the hook was the defining moment of this song. I always hear mysalef saying “In order to survive” 10/10
    5. Free And Easy-This is a definite rememinice of M. It starts off slow, has a goos hook and switches off to a more energetic style. And Ayu’s voice goes with the whole song 10/10 Favorite track
    6. Heartplace-This song is a decent slow song, and it has a nice hook, altho, I expected a bit more energy from a rock style ballad. 8/10
    7. Over-A sad ballad. I love the calmness of this song mixed with pure emotion. Very beautiful 10/10
    8. Hanabi-I love the beautif piano style used in this wonderful ballad, and Ayu’s voice was beautiful from begining to end 10/10
    9. Taskinillusion-Interlude N/A
    10. Everywhere Nowhere-Ayu speaks a lot of english in this CD, unlike her others. Anywho, after the english intro the song is a very high spirited energy paulser, and it’s very catchy. 10/10
    11. July 1st-I bought this CD a while ago and got it yesterday, close to date of the song, but no. Anywho this reminds me of greatful days, cept this is more energetic, and catchier. And it’s got some cool record scratches in it. 10/10
    12. Dolls-I love the mystic feel this song gives, and the smooth flowing hook, along with Ayu’s calm voice. 10/10 2nd favorite track
    13. Neverending Dream-Interlude N/A
    14. Voyage-The song starts off in a sad way, but the hook was very livley, and it takes the track up a notch at the end, And Ayu’s voice went smoothly along with the motions of this song. 10/10
    15. Close To You-Out of all tracks, this is the one I’ll most likely skip. It’s way too slow, and I can’t tell where the hook is. 5/10
    16. Independent-The let’s go clap get’s it started, and then prelude sets it up for a fast paced, energetic anime flavored song. I definitly love the up temponess of the hook. 10/10 3rd favorite track.
    +(Secret track)Sounds like flower garden Pt.2 It’s ok. Not all that great or bad. 6/10

    This is the 4th CD I got from Ayu(First 3 I am Memorial Address, My Story). And I have to say, it is so dang close to I am.(I had a very hard time picking my 3 favorite tracks off of this) This CD should be owned by every fan of Ayu, or J-pop. To me I’d say if you’re starting with Ayu to pick up this or I am. This is dang near a near perfect follow up to I am.

    peace

    Ayu’s best ever!, February 11, 2003

    This CD blows me away. I literally get chills and goosebumps listening to it. Ayumi’s “Rainbow” demonstrates how much she has matured, both vocally and as a musician. Her lyrics are honest and deep, as always. But now, for the first time, I feel the music reflects the same depth and drama as her lyrics. I can only hope that Ayumi continues writing for years and years to come…I can’t get enough.

    A great album from an artist with true star quailty, October 31, 2004

    Many people tell me that this album is Ayumi Hamasaki’s worst, but I don’t really agree. None of her albums are bad. RAINBOW stands out as her experimental album, she has tried different new styles with this album such as R’n’B.

    I recommend all songs on this album, but some songs sticks out. Such as Voyage, Real me, July 1st, Independent and Heartplace.

    I may say that many songs on this album aren’t the best – Ayu can deliver better songs, but the songs does satisfy me. If you already are an ayu fan, be sure to get this album straight away! If you are new to Ayu, try something like A BEST before you buy this.
