It's a busy year for Vanilla Beans! Not only have they released 3 singles, a DVD and a photo book so far, but here comes a brand new 3rd album! This one is said to have the particularity of being entirely backed with a full band, no all-programmed tracks. Album versions of their three latest singles released this year ("toki no kakera", "Choco Mint Flavor Time" and "Non-Section") are included, as well as a cover of Thee Michelle Gun Elephant. All the rest are brand new original songs.
This time the limited edition comes at a cheaper price but is missing 3 songs that are found on the normal edition. The jacket artwork is different, this time again very strange one too! Rena and Lisa wrote lyrics to one song each, only appearing on the regular edition.
