About this album

MY STORY is Ayumi Hamasaki’s sixth full-length studio album produced by Max Matsuura. It was released on December 15, 2004.

The album includes the three singles: “Moments “, “INSPIRE “, and “CAROLS “. During its first release, four different limited edition covers were released for fans to choose from. There were also two versions released, the first that included the CD only and a second that included a DVD that contained music videos to some (including the singles) of the tracks from the album. For promotional purposes, Ayumi Hamasaki Arena Tour 2005 A: My Story was scheduled from January to April. During the concert tour, My Story was released again in two more formats, SACD and in DVD Audio. All of the lyrics on the album were written by Hamasaki and three of the tracks, “WONDERLAND “, “winding road ” and “Humming 7/4 “, were composed by her under the pen name “CREA”. It topped the Oricon charts for several weeks (the Japanese equivalent of Billboard). It is currently certified four times platinum in Japan, and triple platinum worldwide. My Story is Hamasaki’s last album to sell over a million units. My Story is also the 222nd best selling album in Japan to date.

Since the single “Moments”, her singles have been released in at least two versions, CD and CD+DVD format. “CAROLS” featured four versions of the single: CD, CD+DVD, SACD, and DVD Audio.

    My favorite part is the one between "WONDERLAND" and "Kaleidoscope". In particular, I love "Liar", "HOPE or PAIN" and "HAPPY ENDING". I think "HAPPY ENDING" is an absolute masterpiece, it gaves me chills everytime i listen to it. Good job, Ayu! ♪

    listening to this the whole way through for the first time in ages...its way too long!! the huge ballad section just ends up boring me. i'd rather have had it split into an album and a mini-album or something.

    I love MY STORY's songs and Ayu's voice. But there is a serious lack of flow with this track-list order, so I rearranged it :). It's too divided between the genre's, it's not melting together. (First a rock section, followed by a long ballad section and then a cute ending section with some jumpy rock songs.)

    It's hard for me to really get into this album besides the singles/songs with PVs, still a great album though. Moments, CAROLS, and INSPIRE are 3 of the best songs ever made

    No filler [2] I really don't like her music after "Memorial address", but this is pretty much amazing. A perfect intro, great rock songs, beautiful ballads...Great album.

    I think this is the greatest album of her 2000s career.

    I don't like this album.....that much. But I must admit that this album had some of her best vocals.
