Their TV appearances were also more frequent and demanding, requiring a more professional approach to the musical business. This important step in the band's career needed money to be invested in new stage sets, personnel, costumes and equipment,  which came out of a two-album contract with Yasushi Akimoto 's Sold Out Productions.
Akimoto was already a well-known author, lyricist and TV producer, deeply involved in the Japanese idol phenomenon. For the first time lead singer Keiko Terada did not have any writing duty on the album, but sang only lyrics written by someone else and dealing with a larger range of topics than in the previous albums. For example, the song "Visconti no Shouzou" is centered on the figure of Italian movie director Luchino Visconti.
The image of the band was largely refined with new costumes and choreography and in particular Terada's image changed, leaving behind her almost boyish look for a more feminine and seductive appearance.
The top-notch production of the album preserved the strong points of the band's music, reserving great attention to vocal performances and enhancing the commercial appeal of the recording.
