History

Following their previous work "Magic Disc", Best Hit AKG is their first album in about a year and a half and the first best-of album by the band. Song selection was determined by members other than Masafumi Goto. Most of their singles up until now were edited for the album, but 3rd single "Siren", 8th single "World Apart" and 15th single "Maigoinu to Ame no Beat" were not.

Limited edition includes bonus DVD of "Return To The Basics vol.1". Live studio recording of the songs from the 1st album "Kimi Tsunagi Five M" are included here in the same order.[1][2]

Gotoh announced via Twitter that the best of album does not represent the end of the band, and that they still plan on releasing an original album in summer, 2012, as the title of it was later announced to be called Landmark.

This album is also their first to be available for digital download in the United States via iTunes.
