Ami Suzuki’s 4th album with Avex Trax, Supreme Show was released on November 12, 2008 to celebrate 10 year anniversary. The whole album is produced by Yasutaka Nakata so the whole album’s genre is electro pop! The album charted #16 on the oricon charts selling 13,094 copies.

TEN the first track celebrates Ami’s 10th anniversary. A really good album opener because the lyrics are all in English telling of Ami’s career from her debut to now.

All the songs from her can’t stop the DISCO single comes next. Like I mentioned before can’t stop the DISCO has a catchy tune and fun to listen to.

climb up to the top, the B-side of the single with the annoying yelling of Ami but with the club type of the music, it really grows on you.

The mix of her previous single SUPER MUSIC MAKER is next. SUPER MUSIC MAKER (SA’08S/A Mix) has less electronic music than the original one and it’s as good to listen.

Out of the new tracks from this album, Mysterious was definately one I liked. Beginnning with synthetic beats, the electro music makes this song a really catchy one! Even though the lyrics are repeated, it doesn’t matter as it goes well with the slow beatings.suzuki

The next track, Change My Life has a more fast paced music than the previous track. I specially liked the music in the chorus of this track. Even though this track is techno, it gives me a summer feeling.

As we keep on proceeding to new tracks, the music and beats starts to get more fast. LOVE MAIL has that fast paced synthetic rhytmn and beats. With Ami going “LOVE MAIL~!”, this song makes you want to groove.

Our next track, the B-side of her single ONE, A Token Of Love. This song gets better and better no many how many times I listen to it.

TRUE is another new track in this album that I liked a lot. Unlike in Mysterious the beats are more fast mixed with electronic bells. Another track in this album that makes you just shake your body.

flower has more slow paced music then any other tracks in the album along with it Ami’s vocal. It’s like an ‘electro ballad’ and it isn’t bad at all. The slow rythmn and beats makes this an interesting track to listen.

And this album comes to an end with it’s first single ONE. With all of it’s synthetic beats and fast paced music, this track was the right way to end Supreme Show.
