    Now we have to wait until some shops release the pre-sale…
    Oh my F5 is going to die the next few day XD

    Thanks for the news~

    THAT is worth investing 7000 yen in! You have all A-Side singles, 4 new songs AND all A-Side PVs! THAT is a bargain. Much more content than a single 2h concert of 6600 yen! Let’s analyze this. Dakara Sono Te Wo Hanashite, Kimi No Nak De Odoritai, Lady-Go-Round, then we fast forward, Ichibu To Zenbu, Dive, My Lonely Town, Sayonara Kizu Darake No Hibi Yo, Don’t Wanna Lie and Go For It, Baby -Kioku No Sanmyaku- never been released to an Official Best-Of. I smell the same kind of compilation but for B-Sides later on. I have all Best Ofs so I’ll be rebuying the same songs again because I love you, B’z (no homo). Oh and for the new tracks and DVDs!

  3. GTO says:

    I told many times before – it’s high time to release all the B’z PVs and now they finally did it. Great!

  4. Ontto says:

    Pv’s are nice, but we have had these songs on earlier compilations already. I’d like to buy those ones too for my collection, but 7000yen for songs I already have on at least 2 different disks. I’m not so sure about this even tho I saw this coming.

    1. Tobias says:

      That is, why both compilations come with new songs and a limited edition DVD with all PVs on it. It’s an incentive for fans who already own these songs on CD. I personally will buy these compilations because of the new songs and, of course, the only official B’z PV collection to date.

      1. Ak says:

        The pvs are nice, but I’m not sure if there really is a market for these collections. I mean, didn’t we just get The best ultra treasure & pleasure collections? Well, I guess that was already five years ago 🙂 Those one had some amazing new versions of Bad Communication, Blowin’ etc. Still, can’t wait to hear the new songs. Isn’t Heat one of the older songs. From that previous US tour or something? It sounds familiar and I’ve probably heard it too.

        1. Tobias says:

          HEAT is by no means an old song. The song was produced for Kim Hyun Joong and B’z later decided to record their own version of it. So far, the song has only been performed during the EXTRA leg of last year’s tour and the pepsi premium live.

          1. Ak says:

            Thanks. The name was familiar so I knew I had heard it before. The song I was actually thinking of was Logic (still remains unreleased?).

          2. Tobias says:

            Logic is still unreleased except for a home video release on B’z Hidden Pleasure ~Typoon No. 20~.

  5. Dave says:

    Looks like a fine package to me. I night actually pick this one up.
