Information

LOVE is Hamasaki Ayumi's third mini-album (4th overall). It was released in three editions : a CD+DVD edition, a CD-Only edition, and a CD-Only "Tales" edition containing a special code to download bonus contents in the PS3 game Tales of Xillia 2. The song "Song 4 u" was used as the theme song of Tales of Xillia 2. It is also the first release of the special 5 consecutive months releases event to commemorate her 15th anniversary.

The DVD originally included a PV for "Melody", but was very soon replaced by "Missing"'s PV.

The mini album is certified Gold for shipment of 100,000 copies.
