I'm by no means a professional reviewer~ I'm just a big fan of NEWS! ^_~v
NEWS NEWS NEWS NEWS!!
NEWS fill up my empty heart since I got to know them in 2008! I'm a happy fan. Since I knew them, I've been really happier, a big change from before. ♥♥♥♥♥♥
So when Ryo and P left in 2011 or was it 2010?, I was badly hurt like the four remaining members.. ;_;..
Now, 4-person NEWS is back for almost a year, we are happy again! And they cherish our support more than ever, more than any other groups do for their own fans!! ♥♥♥♥
We are the strongest!!!!!!!!! XD
Listened to their album once through from 10pm. OMG, truly truly good!! Also, this time, there are a lot more sexy songs! Lol! Our boys have grown up XD But don't we already know that it's always been inside of Tegoshi?! XD
1st song — ~compass~ — It's an introduction. The words are in English. There is no translation in the album booklet. Then.. Japanese fans have to ask Google-sensei themselves?! I'm here to help!! Shinpaishinaidene!!
"We are back...... We are NEWS."
English translation for Japanese NEWS fans/日本のニュースファンのあなたへの英語通訳です:2nd song — WORLD QUEST — I've never really talked about any of the singles, right? XD Isn't this one of our proudest songs?! They performed this on an international stage which every football fan watched!! OMG!! They may not know who they are or what they're singing about, but at least they have heard them before!!
Welcome. This is your access to a new stage. Another opening of a new page. We have been waiting for you. For a decade to breakthrough. Here, from the center of Tokyo, we'll unite and take control. We'll cross nations and generations. We'll see beauty and new sensations. We'll fly to the North, over seas to the South, on the wind to the East, and glide West for world quest. We are a compass to your future, we will guide you to the ultra. We are the four. We are what you've been looking for. KK, SK, TM, YT. We are back. We are NEWS.
3rd song — 4+FAN — A song NEWS made for us!!!!!!! OMG!! So sweet, so touched!! It's always nice to know that your idols appreciate you! Being a NEWS fan is really a happy thing because we are respected and loved and cherished! They always mention us in their jweb and interviews! ♥♥♥♥

Massu's solo song — Remedy — A very very pop dance tune!! It's Massu's style ever since Peek-a-Boo!! Very nice!! I soooo look forward to seeing Massu dance this!!
Tegoshi's solo song — Lovin' U — Tego's choice is super safe this time round! He should challenge a sexy song or something since I know that deep down in his heart, he wants to do it!! XD
