10 days left until MOSAIC.WAV releases their best-of album 「AKIBA-POP√RECOLLECTION」

Are you feeling that post-M3 slump? Too much high-calorie denpa goodies will do that to your body. Well MOSAIC.WAV are about to wake us up big time, with the release of their first "best album" 「AKIBA-POP√RECOLLECTION」 due out November 23rd 2011 on Geneon Universal. This new collection will span material from the past 8 years, celebrating all of the eras equally. But if you already own all previous MOSAIC.WAV albums and singles, don't despair. Actually, you would be getting this best-of album either way, but the legendary AKIBA-POP duo are including 6 new songs, bringing the total to 28 tracks over 2 CDs for ¥3,300 (regular edition).

But wait! Preorder the limited edition at ¥4,725 and receive a reprint of the original MOSAIC.WAV single 「Magical Hacker☆くるくるリスク」, where it all started! み~こ did say this single had a special place in her heart, so it only makes sense to include the whole thing. The LE also includes a commemorative booklet (see this behind-the-scenes photoshoot report) and comes inside a wonderful collectible packaging. Here is the tracklist:

DISC-1 元気side / Delightful Deep Dempa-song

  11. AKIBA-POP the Future

  13. 時空間超越 √ ライブラリィ(New song)(Video)
  14. Flyer(New song)
Notice that the two new videos were produced for the Electric Emotional Engineering disc, so it'll be interesting to compare with the new denpa songs! You have to admit that 「エクリプス eclipse」 sounds pretty mature, although not uncharacteristically so when compared to their other newer songs. However 「時空間超越 √ ライブラリィ」 just SCREAMS classic MOSAIC.WAV sound, no two ways about that! Here are the videos.
