I absolutely love it. For me, this is the best Arashi album. It comprises everything that they’re good at. It makes a very good listening material. My favorite so far is Love Situation and Life. I just love listening to it. It’s lively and upbeat and never boring! It’s really good.

Matsujun’s Yabai-Yabai-Yabai is not as good as La Familia, but then again, it grows on you. La Familia is my favorite Matsujun’s song and I don’t think anything can top that. As usual, Sho’s rapping again and I just love it when he raps. He’s so cool!
