Album information[edit]

Fifth album release from KAT-TUN including solo song by each member and more for 14 tunes total. Regular edition includes a bonus track "Hello". Limited edition includes a bonus DVD with the music video form the album and making-of. Features alternate jacket artwork. Adam Greenburg on Allmusic gave the album three out of five stars, stating that "The album doesn't deliver anything new to the world of Japanese boy bands, but it keeps Kat-Tun in form. They don't obviously improve on previous works or detract from their legacy, as it were. Perfectly middle of the road."[2][3][4]
