SURVIVE
(1997)

LOOSE is the eighth studio album by B'z, released on November 22nd, 1995.

LOOSE debuted at the top of the Weekly Oricon Album chart with 1,336,150 in first week sales—the most of any of the band's studio albums to date. It would also prove the third highest-selling for the entire year of 1995. Later, the album would be certified Triple Million by the Recording Industry Association of Japan, with sales exceeding 3,003,210 physical copies sold. This made it the band's highest-selling studio album. Overall, LOOSE is their third best-selling release of any sort, behind only 1998's compilations B'z The Best "Pleasure" and B'z The Best "Treasure". 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.
