ELEVEN is the eleventh studio album by B'z, released on December 6, 2000. The album was released under a hard rock banner and with the exception of its few choice ballads, it is one of the heaviest works in their catalogue alongside previous effort Brotherhood. The album spawned four singles, one for each season. These date back to the release of its first single "Konya Tsuki no Mieru Oka ni" in February which was found here with an alternate guitar solo—notably, another alternate guitar take would be found on The Ballads ~Love & B'z~ two years later. Spring brought the ballad "May", while summer saw the release of what would become one of their signature songs: the hard rock anthem "juice". In fall, the final single "RING" was released.

In the midst of production, the band embarked on a summer tour coinciding with the album's third single that also bore its name in the form of B'z LIVE-GYM Pleasure 2000 "juice". This would also mark the end of the band's true hard rock era for some years, with them instead embracing more experimental and digital sounds on follow-ups GREEN and BIG MACHINE. None of the album's tracks apart from the singles have been collected elsewhere, though the singles were found selectively on B'z The Best "Pleasure II" and B'z The Best "ULTRA Pleasure", with all four appearing on B'z The Best XXV 1999-2012.

Initially, shows from album tour B'z LIVE-GYM 2001 "ELEVEN" went unseen on home video. The show was first glimpsed in excerpt form on home video as part of B'z The Best "ULTRA Pleasure" in 2008 which included "GOLD" in live form, followed by B'z LIVE-GYM Hidden Pleasure ~Typhoon No.20~ including "Koi-Gokoro (KOI-GOKORO)", "Konya Tsuki no Mieru Oka ni", and "Swimmer yo 2001!!". Later, in celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary, a full show from the tour held at Seibu Dome was released on DVD under the title B'z LIVE-GYM 2001 -ELEVEN-.

Upon release, ELEVEN debuted at the top of the Weekly Oricon Album chart with 756,910 physical copies sold. The album would go on to rank at number 19 on the year end chart. To date, the album has sold in excess of 1,132,180 physical copies, qualifying it for a Million certification from the Recording Industry Association of Japan. In 2018, the album was reissued as a two vinyl set made available to visitors of their thirtieth anniversary public exhibition entitled "SCENES" alongside all other studio albums to that point.

Production information

Due to the album being a collaboration with various foreign producers such as engineer Pat Regan, who had previously worked with Kiss, Deep Purple, and Mr. Big, English lyrics were prepared for all of the album's songs to some degree. Only two of these demos would see any sort of public release. First, an English version of "Raging River" was available as part of enhanced CD features on B'z The "Mixture" in February, while "TOKYO DEVIL" would become "DEVIL" two years later. The English reversion of the latter would be one of their most-performed English songs to date that would be released on the Korea-only mini album DEVIL in 2002 and B'z The Best "ULTRA Treasure" in 2008.

Initial production took place in Japan immediately after B'z LIVE-GYM '99 "Brotherhood". Shortly thereafter, the band traveled to Los Angeles for what would begin one of the longest recording periods in their history. Into the year 2000, B'z continued work on the album in Japan as of March. The long recording process was delayed slightly by two side projects: the summer tour B'z LIVE-GYM Pleasure 2000 "juice" and the preceding project B'z The "Mixture"—a re-recordings and remixes collection of older B'z songs made in tandem with their former record label. Between various trips between Los Angeles and Japan, the album was nearly complete by the time the summer tour took place. At that stage, mainly only vocals remained to be dubbed.

While the album has a consistent hard rock element throughout its track listing, the on and off recording process meant there was no consistent, conscious theme underscoring the whole work. The lack of an overall theme emerging by the end of recording led to the album being titled ELEVEN after it being their eleventh studio album to that point. In fact, the manner in which production took place was recounted by the band as a "drip feed" of album songs. This resulted in an eclectic mix of ballads and some of their hardest rock numbers.

The production was resulting in so many tracks and had continued for so long that, in a conscious moment, the band had to set a definitive end point so that it could be released by the end of the year in time for the February album tour to begin. As a result, additional songs from the ELEVEN sessions would also find their way onto GREEN. The tour that followed, B'z LIVE-GYM 2001 "ELEVEN", would be one of their longest with dates spanning February to August of 2001. All but two of the album's songs—"Thinking of you" and "Tobira"—were performed live and subsequently released on the album's home video release in 2013 as part of their twenty-fifth anniversary celebrations. Select performances had been excerpted for previous occasions, such as with those found on B'z LIVE-GYM Hidden Pleasure ~Typhoon No.20~ released for their twentieth anniversary. Oddly, one of the songs that best captures the album's signature sound titled "Shinjiru Kurai Ii Darou" was performed only for five total dates before being removed and not performed afterward. This has occasionally been the case when a song has been trialed at live outings only to be determined by the band as a less-than-ideal fit, such as with C'mon album song "Hito Shizuku no Anata" on the titular album tour a decade later.

While the sessions were fruitful, the band's shift toward a more digital sound the following year beginning with "ultra soul" was not a coincidence. After having worked with so many international producers for this album, the band decided to try something new after moving forward with the idea that "B'z is just two people" and "are two people that are Japanese [artists at heart]". Feeling that was essential to their identity, there was a concerted effort to strive for a sound that resonated more directly with their own musical trajectory. This led to digital driving elements being utilized for their next two works GREEN and BIG MACHINE after being amalgamated with the hard rock sound curated here. Shortly thereafter, Tak Matsumoto would also embrace a more oriental flavor on his seminal solo effort Hana as well, which brought him his first international release.

Although few of the tracks apart from its four singles have been revisited on compilation works and future LIVE-GYM concerts, it still remains popular with fans and the band alike. In 2013, Tak cited the album as his answer for the number one B'z album, and in 2014 also stated he liked the guitar sound throughout it.

Track listing

All music and guitar by Tak Matsumoto. All lyrics and lead vocals by Koshi Inaba.

  1.  I 
    Technically a brief instrumental,  I  does feature Koshi saying "B'z ELEVEN" in its short runtime. The end of the song transitions into the next track though it was not recorded during the initial sessions. It was only when the band were deciding the track order that the idea to open with an instrumental arose. The title's notation of utilizing an "I" within a box is, according to Tak, a mark the band often uses to denote introductions during tour rehearsals and thus was used here to open the album. The music itself was used as Opening SE during portions of the album tour.
  2. Seventh Heaven
    Originally created with a much different arrangement without horns, "Seventh Heaven" is a funk-infused rock number about a place of bliss. It is also the first time Tak played bass on a track since doing so on the "FIREBALL" single in 1997. When asked by music critic Masanori Ito in 2014 to choose a song by B'z to represent their sound, this song was cited by Tak. It was performed on Music Station in 2000 alongside "Konya Tsuki no Mieru Oka ni" and appeared on all dates of B'z LIVE-GYM 2001 "ELEVEN" but has not been performed since. It did, however, find on its way onto the tour's dedicated home video.
  3. Shinjiru Kurai Ii DarouI Can Believe in You, 信じるくらいいいだろう
    Contrary to their usual production method at the time, "Shinjiru Kurai Ii Darou" began with implementation of the riff. Tak's process at the time involved working primarily on the melody and filling in the rest from there. Indeed, the riff begins the song outright and continues through the chorus and outro without ceasing. Additionally, the song contains no guitar solo, becoming one of the select few B'z songs to share that distinction. The song was performed very briefly on early dates of B'z LIVE-GYM 2001 "ELEVEN" but was removed from the setlist thereafter. It has not been released on home video.
  4. RING
    A ballad in the chromatic scale, "RING" is considered by the band to be quite avant-garde compared to their other singles. The "RING" in the title does not refer to the fashion accessory worn on the finger but instead the sound made through ringing, such as with a bell. The song itself was written in the dressing room during B'z LIVE-GYM '99 "Brotherhood". It has not been performed live since being premiered live for B'z LIVE-GYM Pleasure 2000 "juice" and was included in excerpt form on the home video titled B'z LIVE-GYM Hidden Pleasure ~Typhoon No.20~.
  5. Ai no prisonerLove's prisoner, 愛のprisoner
    An unforgiving hard rock number, "Ai no prisoner" was initially the lead song on the album upon its announcement. It was only with the last return to the studio that the order was shuffled and it ended here. However, the song did open the album tour B'z LIVE-GYM 2001 "ELEVEN" and was later found on its dedicated home video. It has not been performed in the years since.
  6. Kirameku HitoShining One, 煌めく人
    As one of the few B'z songs in the modern era to incorporate rap-style vocal delivery, "Kirameku Hito" was proposed by Tak as an effort to create something different than what fans would expect. Specifically, he stated later, "I wanted to try a song that was like Rage Against the Machine". While the song is hard rock in nature and the lyrics are aggressively overlayed, its theme is nonetheless rooted in romance. The song has not been performed live since B'z LIVE-GYM 2001 "ELEVEN" but was found on its dedicated home video.
  7. May
    For its release, B'z set out to make "May" a single that emphasized "the basics" as its theme while also being one that emitted a typical B'z atmosphere. However, upon release, fans expressed surprise, feeling that the song was a type that hadn't been on a single before, which was a reaction that Tak and Koshi did not expect. The title came from it being released in the month of May, with Tak being the one to make the suggestion. An additional reason given was the muted feeling of the lyrics being similar to "May disease"—a phenomenon in Japan used to describe the malaise and dread of returning to work and school following the April Golden Week holidays. Koshi mentioned that it was difficult to get the tone right while recording the vocals, as he did not want to stress too much emotion. One-time support member and B'z LIVE-GYM '98 "SURVIVE" keyboardist Kousuke Ooshima participated in producing the track and is credited with aiding in arrangement. The song was performed only during B'z LIVE-GYM Pleasure 2000 "juice" and was not released on home video until a single performance made its way into the premium video boxset B'z COMPLETE SINGLE BOX in 2017.
  8. juice (PM Mix)
    One of the truly hard rock singles by the band, "juice" has enjoyed wide acclaim amongst fans old and new alike. When performed live, the breakdown in the song between the guitar solo and the final chorus is often utilized for fan interaction, with Koshi calling upon the crowd in a call-and-response routine with varying exclamations and phrases, eventually culminating in the final riff. This, along with its inherent high energy, has made it a favorite of many fans and has garnered it a place on many of their live setlists since its release. As of 2017, it is currently their tenth most performed song. An entirely re-recorded English version was released as "Juice" on the band's debut English album in 2012. The original song was also used as the ending theme to the TV Asahi series "Onepu!". For its first album collection on studio work ELEVEN, a remix titled "juice (PM Mix)" saw a slightly heavier version with raised vocals and more emphasized guitar being released. The "PM" stands for "Poquito Mas" which was a small-time Mexican outlet at which the band commonly ate during production.
  9. Raging River
    Spanning 7 minutes and 32 seconds, "Raging River" is the longest original song in the B'z catalogue. Its chief rival in terms of length is "OUT OF THE RAIN -OFF THE LOCK STYLE-" from the BAD COMMUNICATION mini album released in 1989. Though the song opens with a brief piano and strings intro, this transitions into acoustic guitar backing Koshi's vocals for the first portion of the song. With the first chorus, the song adds electric guitar and becomes more of a full rock song. An English demo of the song premiered ten months prior via enhanced CD functions for B'z The "Mixture". The initial version was entirely in English and recorded with an acoustic arrangement that ended during the first guitar interlude. Some of the English lyrics remain as part of the chorus here. The domain hosting the demo is no longer functional and thus the song is no longer accessible. Notably, fans initially wondered if the song had any connection to The 7th Blues album song "Akai Kawa" (Red River), though this was rendered moot when Tak said he did not specifically recall the song when asked given the dozens they'd produced in the interim. The song has not been performed live since B'z LIVE-GYM 2001 "ELEVEN" but was found on its dedicated home video.
  10. TOKYO DEVIL
    A relentless hard rock number, "TOKYO DEVIL" is amongst the hardest songs produced by B'z. Overlapped riffs were looped in a manner that is unusual for the B'z production method. The song ends with a Chinese gong which was cued by Tak's longtime tone guru and guitar technician Katsunori Hatakeyama. A fully English reversion became their first English song in some time when it was re-recorded as "DEVIL" two years later. It would be premiered live as part of B'z LIVE-GYM 2002 "GREEN ~GO★FIGHT★WIN~" and performed as part of 2002 FIFA World Cup International Day Concert, a joint headline event with American rock legends Aerosmith. The song would first find its way onto album form in the Korean-exclusive mini album DEVIL in 2002 and later be voted by fans onto B'z The Best "ULTRA Treasure" in 2008. The original Japanese version has not been performed live since B'z LIVE-GYM 2001 "ELEVEN" but was found on its eventual home video.
  11. Kobushi wo NigireClench That Fist, コブシヲニギレ
    As with the album's third track, "Kobushi wo Nigire" was composed with a riff in mind as opposed to working from the melody which was at odds with their process at the time. As with the album's third track, it was composed with a riff in mind as opposed to working from the melody which was at odds with their process at the time. Overlapped riffs were looped in a manner that is unusual for the B'z production method. According to both members, the resulting song was emblematic of the exact sound they were attempting to capture during that era. Koshi also performed the harmonica on the track. So impressed were they with the result that Tak wanted to make it a single. The song served as the subtitle to a SHOWCASE concert that led into the album tour, with the resulting title being B'z SHOWCASE "Kobushi wo Nigire". The song has not been performed live since B'z LIVE-GYM 2001 "ELEVEN" but was found on its dedicated home video.
  12. Thinking of you
    Originally created as a demo by Tak in between Los Angeles recording sessions, "Thinking of you" was actually produced in Japan. Unusually for their work, the song has no intro and starts with Koshi's vocals immediately after the previous track ends. Most notably, the song was used as an Ending SE as part of B'z LIVE-GYM Pleasure 2000 "juice" and began the tradition of using unreleased songs for the purpose. The song is one of two on the album to have never been performed live.
  13. TobiraDoor, 扉
    The last song produced for the album, "Tobira" was recorded with the tour support members instead of their usual stable of studio musicians. The tempo swings depending on the part of the song and by the end, the guitar waves from the left to right channels via panning processing. The song is the second of those never performed live from the album, with the preceding track being the other.
  14. Konya Tsuki no Mieru Oka ni (Alternative Guitar solo ver.)On the Hilltop Where We Can See the Moon Tonight, 今夜月の見える丘に
    One of the band's staple songs, "Konya Tsuki no Mieru Oka ni" has become synonymous with the image of B'z music. The song was written specifically for the drama series Beautiful Life for which it served as the theme. Tak and Koshi read the script to the drama prior to writing and composing the song, and carried out production between stops for B'z LIVE-GYM '99 "Brotherhood" with the single being completed in mid-November. On the lyrics, Koshi aimed to write something that was about figuratively taking whatever steps to overcome barriers and break free. The song is one of the few B'z works in which the title does not appear in the lyrics, with Koshi explaining the title was to set the atmosphere and not necessarily required to be cited in the lyrics directly. While the version here features an alternative guitar solo take compared to the one used on the year's earlier single, there exists another version of the song as well: for the 2002 compilation The Ballads ~Love & B'z~, an additional alternate guitar solo take was used without a subtitle indicating the track as different from the single itself.
