This is probably the only Ayu release that have answered her fan’s prayers. “Mirror,” the first track of her most recent album, “GUILTY” was the favorite of many fans but apparently, it was an incredibly short track. But now, Avex Trax brings you “Mirrorcle World” which is an extended version of “Mirror.”

Instead of going right away to its pop-oriented sound, Mirrorcle World begins with an orchestral arrangement of the melody. But instead of it’s original version itself, Ayu added many sorts of new elements into the track, making it a favorite of fans. Mirrorcle World included new instrumental segments and a chorus, making it much more extended than the original.

Our next new track, Life is a strong combination of rock and hard ballad. (Pretty much the same material featured in “NEXT LEVEL.”) I thought that the song was alright because it didn’t have that same energy that was played in “Mirrorcle World.”

Depending on which version you got for this single, you would either get the YOU (10th Anniversary version) or the Depend on you (10th Anniversary version). Either way, both tracks were greatly improved with the vocals and more modern instrumentation. I thought that the “Depend on you (10th Anniversary version)” was much better than the original!
