Updated with the tracklists from everywhere except the actual H!P site. :lol:

 

I'll correct any romanization or translation as necessary.

 

Edit: Someone ran the limited edition BOX stuff through Google Lens and it came out with a box, a digipak? case, and a photo booklet? I guess?

I'm so excited for this, we haven't had an MM album since 2019 (Best Album) or four if we're counting the original albums (15 Thank You Too, 2017). Seems pretty generous for HP to give us an album this time of the year.

 

I just wonder how it will impact sales. Considering MM had around 30k last album, we'd probably expect around 24-29k this time due to COVID. BUT MAN THEY GOIN ALL OUT NOW WITH THAT LE BOX

Bigger covers:
 

Spoiler

 
Judging by the arrangers alone this is probably going to be a raw power album, with snappy beats and several effects. 
 
Egami Kotaro
- Aishite Nan ga Warui!?
- TIME IS MONEY!
- Futari wa Abekobe
 
Egami prudices some kind of R&B/Hip Hop/club sound. His most recent work within H!P is Anju's Zenzen Okiagarenai SUNDAY, but he has also arranged Juice's Dream Road, the KSS's Onna no Sono, and Berryz' Motto Zutto and 1oku 3zenman Sou Diet Oukoku.
 
Hirata Shoichiro
- Nakimushi My Dream
- Junjou Evidence
- Kono Mama!
- LOVEpedia
 
Hirata originally comes from dance games like DDR and Beatmania, but he has arranged tons of H!P songs. Not gonna mention them all, but take a look at his wikia page.
Like, there are some real legends among his work. Crazy Kanzen na Otona, Suki Sugite Baka Mitai, Aitai Aitai Aitai na, Glass no Pumps, Aishite Aishite Ato Ippun, Kono Chikyuu, Onna to Otoko, Koi wa Accha Accha, Tsugitsugi Zokuzoku, Shiroi Tokyo... (as well as Hello History, which I personally love :ph34r:)
I guess that not every song can be absolutely perfect when you work on so many things. Personally I didn't really like Junjou Evidence, but LOVEpedia was great. He's probably my favourite arranger on this album, so I have high hopes.*
 
*I also know that arrangers, lyricists and componists work with strict guidelines so it all depends on what management wants for MM at the moment. But hey, LOVEpedia was already right up my alley.
 
Suzuki Shunsuke
- Hey! Unfair Baby (linking the song since it's been some time)
- Ningen Kankei No way way
 
(Skipping Suzuki since we already know the two songs.)
 
And of course Okubo Kaoru, who has arranged most of MM's recent singles:
- Gyuusaretai Dake nanoni
- Shinjiru Shika!
- KOKORO&KARADA
- Jinsei Blues
- Ren'ai Destiny ~Hon'ne wo Ronjitai~
- Seishun Night
 
From what we've heard of Renai Destiny it already reminds me of Ai Surrender. Shinjiru Shika! will be interesting, but I think this one might go more into the EDM direction again.

If it were my choice I wouldn't have put NKNWW and Lovepedia right next to each, since it will be kinda like listening to the same song twice. I would have preferred one as the opening song and one as the closer, like bookends. Other than that, I'm super excited to buy this, and happy to see Chel looking great, and in such a prominent position.

Yeah, a new album! And 8 of 15 songs are new. I was wishing for a new single but an album it's fine, specially since the last original album was in 2017. I don't care much about sales I just want new music and here it is. Can't wait to listen the unit songs. :)

TIME IS MONEY! [Sato Masaki, Nonaka Miki, Yokoyama Reina, Yamazaki Mei]

One of these is not like the others.

Reina is going to stick out in this song. The other three have similar tones to their voices.

so excited for this omg!!! i've been hoping for a new album in 2021 since like april lol so i'm glad it's true. the girls look amazing in both the covers and their profiles, i love the more mature styling and all the red tones and everything. and those producers omg!!! kinda sucks to still see so much tsunku but i get why lol. i'm especially excited to hear the hirata shoichiro songs since he's one of my favorite h!p producers (and if i haven't made it apparent enough in past instances i'm just a huge dance music fan and a lot of his stuff leans towards eurobeat/eurodance/general edm stuff lol), but also egami kotaro since the stuff he's produced are always bangers and i really wanna hear what he does for momusu here. i'm not sure if i'll be able to get this since i wanna get the beyonds single (and the new nogizaka46 single lmao) but hopefully i can get it sometime down the line. tl;dr i'm really excited for the album and super happy the rumors were true!


incredibly powerful beyooooonds stan

TIME IS MONEY! [Sato Masaki, Nonaka Miki, Yokoyama Reina, Yamazaki Mei]
One of these is not like the others.
Reina is going to stick out in this song. The other three have similar tones to their voices.

I actually like the dynamic of those 4, with Maachan/Mei having higher, louder voices and Chel/Yokoyan having lower, softer voices to balance out any harmonies that could potentially be in the song. With the name alone, I have a feeling that this might be a more energetic, "gag" like song like Osaka Umaimen, Guguruguru Jump, Shanimuni Paradise, etc. I think the FukuRioHagaMaria song will take the darker tone, and the bigger unit song could be similar to Koi wa Toki ni where it's the middle piece between a highly energetic somg (Ice Cream/TIM) and more serious toned song (SOML/Futari).

Interesting! I feel like the FukuRioHagaMaria song might be a ballad, since these girls have such nice ballad voices.

 

I also think Time is Money is going to be a gag song, especially with that title--the one who sticks out for me actually is Miki, since she has such a lower energy image than the other three. Regardless of who sticks out though I think it'll definitely be a cute song!

Sakura described some of the new songs:
"Oda says the unit songs are “cute, cool, and a sparkling sad song,” and says Shinjiru shika! feels like it’s building into a climax, but then the melody ends in an unexpected way.

She says the structure from the very start is cool, and is excited to show off the choreography." - @JPN_ENG_Kanda
 
And Tsunku seems pretty confident in this album.
"Tsunku said it was an issue of timing: they've been preparing this album from the time "15, Thank you too" was released. He feels like this is a well-cooked and seasoned album, compared to when things are thrown together—he thinks we can properly relax and enjoy this album.
 
He also emphasizes the fact he doesn't like creating "maniac works," and hasn't done so since Morning Musume debuted. In other words, he never creates anything self-satisfying as a producer or to purposefully boost an artist['s ego]. He's always playing the offense.
 
Momusu's true pleasure is the fact everyone accepts what they do: from kindergarteners to adults. This is why I named the album as such: I felt like this is what J-POP truly is. I have the confidence this is something you can give to anyone who asks to listen to J-POP in 2021." - @JPN_ENG_Kanda

^Same lol. Personally I didn't enjoy the last two albums too much, and unfortunately Tsunku's songs for the group have been especially hit and miss for me lately, therefore I'm really careful here lol.
