    Wow, what wonderful news!!

    I will definitly pre-order the Limited. Thats so great. All these live performances. Wow i’m really … wow i can’t find any words…

    and again i’m in holiday and there are some B’z News :-))))

  5. … just when you think B’z have hit a new low >.>;.

    Just kidding.

    Greatest B’z news since…. well I can’t think of better news.

  6. Larry Wilson says:

    That’s definitely great news.

    Personally, though, I’m still waiting for either a live album or a DVD with all of their music videos. They haven’t done an official music video collection since “Film Risky.”

    As for the live album, they could do it just like they’re doing the “Best Pleasure/Treasure” albums, or how David Bowie did it–have the fans vote beforehand and choose what they want to hear. They’ve got almost 20 years’ worth of Live Gyms, so it’s not like they don’t have any material.

    Even so, I’m definitely getting these discs. I have just about every major album of theirs but “Survive.”
