Information

GUILTY is the ninth full-length studio album released by Hamasaki Ayumi. The album was released in two versions, CD+DVD and CD Only. First press copies came with a limited edition photobook. The CD+DVD version included all the music videos from the single glitter / fated to the digital single Together When..., including making-of's.

It follows in the footsteps of the rock-influenced Secret, with a similar balance of rock and pop sounds. The album features four interlude tracks - highly unusual at the time when compared to her past releases. This was met with some contention from fans.

Hamasaki's official website announced on March 17, 2008 that GUILTY will be released digitally in over 26 countries worldwide, a first for any Japanese artist. The album would be digitally released through the Apple iTunes stores in North America, Oceania, Europe, and Asian countries where the physical version of the album was already released. This is officially Hamasaki's first release outside Asia.

The opening track Mirror was later released as Mirrorcle World, which was used to promote and commemorate her 10th Anniversary. A limited PLAYBUTTON edition of the album was released on March 21st, 2012.

This album reached #2 on the Oricon charts and charted for 17 weeks. It sold 568,288 copies, becoming the #17 album of 2008. GUILTY is Hamasaki's first studio album to not have reached #1 on the Oricon weekly album charts.

The album is certified Double Platinum for shipment of 500,000 copies.

The song MY ALL was certified Gold in June of 2012 for overselling 100,000 legal downloads by Recochoku.
