頭の1曲を除き、全曲にラッパーやシンガーを迎えた一枚。B.I.G. JOEKeycoHisomi-TNP & Meisoらをはじめ、客演には意外にも(?)初となるILL-BOSSTINOの名も。いつものように聴かせるノスタルジックなトラックは、とりわけ過去作でも共演したMOUTHPEACEとの“本当の事は歌の中にある”において、歌詞と共に深みを帯びる。なかなか会えぬ友に宛てた手紙として記すラップが、淡々と心を捕える逸曲だ。

[English Translation]
With the exception of the opening track, all the songs on the album welcome some kind of supporting performance by rappers or vocalists. Sapporo-based hip hop MC, B.I.G. JOE or singer-songwriter Keyco, MCs such as Hisomi-TNP or Meiso are among the guests appearing on this album with a surprisingly first ever (?) guest appearance by ILL-BOSSTINO from popular Japanese hip hop group, THA BLUE HERB. The tracks remain entrancingly nostalgic, especially added depth to along with the superb lyrics in "Honto no Koto wa Uta no Naka ni Aru (The Truth Is In A Song)", featuring Kumamoto-based rapper MOUTHPEACE whom he performed together also in his previous release. It's a brilliant song rapping the words of a letter directed to a friend he seldom gets to see, that calmly yet steadily captures the hearts of the audience.
