Some new material are included in Hey ! Say ! JUMP's 1st best album Hey ! Say ! JUMP 2007-2017 I/O that was released last month on 26th July .
The release of Hey ! Say ! JUMP 2007-2017 I/O was to celebrate the group's 10th anniversary in the business . I/O stands for Input/Ouput .
In addition to including songs taken from singles , fan votes covering the past 10 years , 2 new songs were specially created that're included as bonus tracks in the 2 CDs version of Hey ! Say ! JUMP 2007-2017 I/O .
The result of the fan votes yielded several fan favourites that was released on CD for the 1st time that were selected from 112 songs that Hey ! Say ! JUMP recorded over the last decade .

- Viva ! 9's SOUL (2017 Ver.) ; original version found in as a bonus track in the CD only version of 4th album JUMPing CAR , track #7

I will not review/write that much on the new material in the 3rd CD from the 3 CDs version of Hey ! Say ! JUMP 2007-2017 I/O as I'm generally not a fan of them but I like the 2 new songs that were specially created / included as bonus tracks in the 2 CDs version of the best album .
I/O & H.our Time are polar opposites of each other as I/O is an upbeat rather aggressive song while H.our Time is a special ballad as it includes personal input from the entire group as they wrote the lyrics to the song .
That said , Hey ! Say ! JUMP 2007-2017 I/O is a release that shows how far Hey ! Say ! JUMP has come & I myself can't believe it as I started supporting them from 2008 (when their 3rd single Your Seed / Bouken Rider was released) and it's a surreal feeling over the years they have matured considerably from boys to adults .
Hey ! Say ! JUMP 2007-2017 I/O is a great release that looks back at the group's past , present & future and here's to another 10 more years of Hey ! Say ! JUMP !
