NEWS - pacific (2nd album)

Limited Edition
Being the second album for the group it has a couple of single tracks from before the group's hiatus, Sayaendo and Hadashi no Cinderella Boy. It is with this album that we start to get some songs that are not full group songs, as well as Yamashita Tomohisa and Nishikido Ryo getting solo songs on NEWS albums.

Yamapi's solo song on the album is Gomen ne Juliet and Ryo's is code, which he wrote himself. Koyama Keiichiro and Kato Shigeaki have two duets on the album, Alibi (with Tegoshi Yuya and Masuda Takahisa providing background vocals) and Chiraizumu. The song Ai Nante has the trio of Tegoshi, Ryo and Shige performing the song with Tegoshi as the lead vocalist. Then Nantoka Narusa had the other half of the group, Massu, Koyama and Yamapi with Massu as lead vocalist.

Change Your World had a commercial tie-in for a cram school and had been speculated on being a single when it first began to air.

The limited edition came with a 32-page photo book as its special feature. The regular edition has two tracks not on the limited edition.
