It has been 'In Shipping Process' for a couple of days now. So maybe it's just random how they pack it. Maybe since there are likely more shipments headed for the USA, they prioritize that first.

I see you chose Air Mail - that likely has a factor in it.

I believe the way Air Mail works is they have to fill a container with enough items before it is shipped - thus the up to 8 week delay.

I used FedEx, it's crazy how fast I get it.  Costs through the nose - but I try to bundle for that reason.

It's release day, my order isn't even processed yet, another album I ordered is labelled "processed" in the english version of CDJ but "restocking" in the french one, and the same goes for my RS Japan copy excepted additionally it's now squarely labelled "out of print" on the product page x) And no news from CDJ yet of course.
I still hope they'll manage to send me my order in the coming months x)

Not quite sure actually, but you might be right. Guess I've always been lucky in the past. I've had things on eBay shipped from Japan through airmail and it has arrived one day later (still don't understand how that works).

Oh well, all we can do is wait and see Smile

I believe it's all luck - if you are the last few boxes in the container it's super fast.  I used SAL Small Packet on one order of some manga, and I recall studying all the options and that's why I didn't go with airmail.

I really like CDJ I've been ordering from them since at least 2011, but I've used FedEx 13 times and SAL once.  So I'm less of an expert on the other shipping methods.

Ditto. Looks like I'll be going to YouTube to get my 「Stamp!」fix then.

I only use EMS with CDJ, that's pretty fast too (I guess it's called Express Mail Service for a reason), if it's not for the delay at UK Customs, which is a bit hit and miss depending on how much the items cost.

Does anyone else also dislike the first 12 seconds of Flashback NO. 5? I am thinking of cutting that part out, not a very pleasant sound for me. The rest of the song is amazing. I still like Stamp! more though because of the happy mood it generates.

I can't use fedex... they always charge me 20 or 30$ to process the taxes or w/e

when I use ems it always gets through without me having to pay taxes...

Also for the air mail thing, that's basically how it works (at least where I work). They hand it off to a company that has shipments going to lots of places and they go through the post after it gets there (usually it's just a pallet for air, not a container so it isn't as bad as ground/sea options)

Canada to Australia usually takes like 4-6 weeks that way

woah O_O

I haven't seen anyone do a commercial release in 24/48 in a while...

CDs are 16/44.1. that's 24/48...

gibe pls...

the sad part is that it's probably mastered for cd and just exported to 24/48 so it's basically the same thing ;_;

Yeah, that's what I fear… I'll have a look at the spectrum analysis :|

Edit: seems to be a legit 24/48 FLAC file. Now I really don't get it e_e

@kudo_maharizu: MORA is only available from Japan. You can't even proceed to checkout without a japanese proxy or VPN, let alone you'd need a japanese address and credit card.

Mine has also been in shipping process for a couple of days now. I always use FedEx with the new releases, you have to pay customs, but at least they are not stuck in there for weeks, or months. Mexican customs are the worst, and they always open the Limited Editions, so I always get super angry. Anyway. They shipped HELLO WORLD two days before the release and I got it one day after. I was hoping they would do the same with Stamp!, and I actually ordered it within the first hour of the pre-order release. Looks like I'll have to wait at least another week.

Demand must be crazy this time. If I am not mistaken, usually you could find the first press singles in CDJ a few weeks after the release. I got Yoake first press like 2 months after. Stamp! first press was sold out a few days before the release. The World Tour has really made a great impact, hasn't it? I'm so happy for them. Too bad international sales don't appear on charts anymore.

I know! Mexican customs are the worst thing on earth! Last time when  I bought HW, I used EMS, and I got it like 20 days after the release, I was really angry Rage . This time I'm using Fedex but I've never paid taxes, I hope this thime is not the exception. My order is in shipping process since last friday.

BTW, do anyone know if tomorrow Stamp! will appear in Oricon chart?

Finally!!!!!

They usually charge custom taxes when the package is over $70, but sometimes the government needs money, because you know, why not?, so they charge the tax anyway. I hope they won't this time.

I can't wait to hang that poster on my bedroom!

I've come to the conclusion that "Flashback No. 5", while very nice, definitely lacks some Tomomi lead vocals and especially her trademark chunky basslines. You really need to force yourself to hear her bass on that song and that's really weird.

I think SCANDAL should step up with their drumming pattern. Like, making use of the double pedals every now and then. Ever since Rina has learned them years ago, they have never actually demonstrated it onto their songs. Some songs would have sounded better with it, I could imagine Flashback no.5 sounding more rockish and sophisticated

Wow, I was thinking the same thing, after hearing the full clear hd version (and with head phones on) of Flashback .05, and it sounds a lot better to me than it did before, and I'm loving the sound of Rina's kick drum.  But like you said it would have sounded more rockish and cool if she would fully use the double pedaling in it.
 The only time she uses them during a song if it for a very short trasition (e.g in Departure and Love survive) or at the end for finishing (e.g in Standard and Orange Juice) or in lives.  I'm hoping we get to hear songs with a fully use her double pedaling, I think it would make the songs sound cool and more complex.

So now after hearing the full version of Flashback No.5 (yes, those few little seconds we didn't get before the release count lol) I can definitely say it's an awesome song and I think I like it a little more than Stamp!

I think one of my fav parts is when Haru holds that final "dakishimete"  for a long time at the end.

I don't see why some ppl say it feels incomplete or w/e. It feels like a perfectly good song to me.
It's sure to get ppl pumped up at lives. It does me Happy
