I really enjoy watching those live clips taken from the Tokyo International Forum over & over again.
They show the real Scandal on stage much much better.
I would prefer the full show on a stand alone DVD/BluRay instead of their arena live with lot of post production.
Obviously they feel more comfortable and confidence playing at their home country.
IMO, during "Graduation" shows their musicianship the best! Especially the rhythm section is solid.
Btw, would someone shed some light on this? I'm no bass player. Is that Tomomi have her Fender Sub-Lime Bass Fuzz Pedal engaged throughout "Graduation"? I love her bass tone especially those bass lines before the guitar solo. I feel myself want to learn to play bass immediately haha!

Yeah Tomomi's performance on "Graduation" is absolutely amazing  Amazed


Also the live version of "Hon wo Yomu" is really the one that shows how much they've grown into an amazing band as a whole; so many details, so many intricacies, the various backing vocals bits, it's really such a treat to watch and hear!

I also want to see MAMI switching to drums on Oyasumi, but she has never done that so far Sad

I'm pretty sure, they'll come back pretty soon. 

Finally, my orders from CDjapan are here. The song structure of Stamp! reminds me of Joan Jett's "I love Rock n' Roll". The guitar overdrive was warm and vintage-like. Pretty good alternative rock song for me. Tons of good vibes indeed! 

However, I am not a big fan of how they rendered the chorus of Flashback #5. Otherewise, it's a good upbeat rock song. Better ask me through PM. I don't want spoilers, LOL!

As for the DVDs, SCANDAL performed live at their finest. Powerful yet intimate.

Purchasing both LE CDs of Stamp! is a great value!

I like Stamp but nothing more. By cons I love Flashback NO.5 Onion Skipping

It's cool that they are well placed in the Oricon Nice One

Awanai Tsumori no, Genki de ne: 36k

I think I'm just a tad bit late to join the bandwagon, but honestly Flashback No. 5 is pretty awesome haha

I'm having a hypothesis here that this is because Stamp! lacks of Japanese ambiance unlike the rest on that list... 

Just a hypothesis there, I can be wrong at all time Happy

You know, I was listening to some of Scandal's older stuff, and noticed something. "Stamp" actually has a sound a little reminiscent of "Right Here" off of Queens are Trumps.
