"Memorial address" reached #1 on the Oricon charts selling 524,028 copies on its first week. It sold 1,059,534 copies in 2004, becoming the #4 album of the year. It charted for 48 weeks and sold a total of 1,062,288. It is currently the best-selling mini-album by a Japanese female singer, having sold over a million copies in Japan.

The melody of the title track, "Memorial address", was composed by Yukumi Tetsuya of the independent band LOVER SOUND TRACK, originally used in their song "kumo". Since this song, Hamasaki has used Yukumi's composing talents extensively; he composed a good portion of songs on Hamasaki's 2004 album, "MY STORY". The song was certified Gold in 2013 by RIAJ for selling over 100,000 legal downloads.
