Supreme Show is the seventh studio album by Japanese recording artist Ami Suzuki. It was released on November 12, 2008 by Avex Trax as her 10th Anniversary album. It was also released ten months after her joint project album, Dolce.
Supreme Show is an electronic dance music album with numerous elements of dance-pop, house, synthpop, and J-pop. According to Ami Suzuki, she stated that she was trying to "re-invent" herself during the 2007 period; as a result, her enlisting Nakata allowed her to work through electronic dance and house music. An editor from Channel-Ai labelled Suzuki during her 2008 music period as a "disco queen". Suzuki had spoken with Robert Michael Poole from The Japan Times, and stated during the process; "I was wondering what kind of music would fit me now, and as I searched, I realized that house and electro really fits me. I had been going to a lot of club events recently with Nakata… That scene attracts hardcore music fans, and I realized that working with this producer would be extremely cool and would transcend Japanese pop convention." She later stated "I have made a lot of different styles of music in my career, and I want to be free to go with what I feel in my bones at the time. People may wonder which form is the one I enjoy the most, or which one fits me best, but at this time I can say with confidence that this electro style is great for me."
Majority of the album's tracks are composed as electronic dance songs, and Suzuki's vocals on every track are processed with autotune and vocoder post-production work. This is Suzuki's second studio album to use autotune and vocoder effects since Dolce. "Can't Stop the Disco", the album's second single, was described as a dance-pop song with numerous musical elements, including techno, disco, and club music. "Super Music Maker" is a remixed version by Nakata that appeared on Dolce. "climb up to the top" was described as a 1990s inspired dance song. "Mysterious" was described as a "sexy" atmospheric song by critics, whilst "A Token of Love" was noted for its strong rhythm. "One" was described as a dance-pop song with numerous musical elements, including club music. Suzuki contributed to the album as the lead vocalist, background vocalist, and co-songwriter for the track "Love Mail"; Nakata wrote and composed all the tracks. The album is Suzuki's second album after DOLCE to emphasize full English language songs; in total, Supreme Show features three English, one bilingual, and seven Japanese tracks.
