Usually I don't really like their pop-ish songs
But I really like this song!
It feels different and fresh
And as a female fan, I love the part where Haru says "Hey, Sisters"
lol

I'm loving Tomo's bass line and Rina's drumming here
I love Rina's bass drum sound at the beginning of the song
I think it's the first time I hear it on SCANDAL song

I wonder if Rina will add a kick trigger pedal to her drum set, so she can reproduce the electric bass drum sound when they play this song live
I hope she will, it will be very fun to hear at live
Ah, I fell in love with SCANDAL once again because of this song Love

I don't like the song.... I LOVE it!!!! Amazing creativity.... Can't really hear much the acoustic guitar due to bad audio quality but it's a piece of art.... I'm a guy but the song reminds me of Weather Report and Haru's heart-tearing vocals....

I'm pretty much excited on the video now and the b-side.

I like it overall. Definitely better than Stamp! The only issue I have with Sisters is the auto tune at the beginning, that's a shame and I'm missing TOMOMI's voice in singles. We don't listen to her since Yoake no Ryuuseigun

On my first listening of the song, I was very very afraid with the auto-tune thing at the beginning. I was like "omg, is this a Almond Crush' song?". But then the music started and all my worries were gone. I just can't decide between this and Stamp!; both of them are very enjoyable and interesting. Man, I'm happy with these latest releases. I confess I was counting every second to finally listen to "Sisters" (the promotion strategies are working very well this time [at least for me]) and here we are. It's as good as I was expecting - no, maybe it's a little better. "Sisters" sound like a super-improved version of "Pin Heel Surfer" - which I love, by the way, but now, listening to the new song, I can see where PHS did it wrong while trying to please the fanbase with generic arrangements. They're trying so many new things without losing their roots. They're showing us that mixing references and flirting with pop tendencies without losing their characteristic rock soul is possible. But I have a complaint: what the heck TOMOMI isn't singing in this single AGAIN? This is a thing that really really makes me upset and worried. HARUNA and TOMOMI sharing vocals is like one of the things that made SCANDAL be what they're now. Hope the b-side is full of her, please.

Yeah, it just sounds like every other pop girl group song, nothing really special.  Wew  Stamp!  sound like any 90s Western rock band,  at least it was different and exotic for them and the Japanese demographic. I don't mind their poppish /danceable songs, they just have to keep my interest and to be honest this song is kinda boring. I don't know where the whole "girl ROCK them came from lol)

Well the guitar parts are cool and I love the volumn of Rina kick pedal, I wish their previous song had loud of a pedal. And I can probably tell it has some encouraging lyrics.

I love the emotion in this song Love 

It's not exactly how I imagined it, but I still like it a lot. And I'm sure I'll just love it even more the more I listen to it haha

I also love how Haru hold the final word of the song. Like she does in Flashback No.5. Awesome Cool

I can sympathize. I'm gonna have a hard time taking this song in for the next while. Guess it's time for me to roll dice on the B-side again Thinking

Dang, you're right. I wonder if it's a stylistic shift made within the band since Yoake or it just so happens that the past 3 consecutive singles don't really have a spot for Tomo's vocals (i.e. matter of chance).
I, for one, will start to find it peculiar or strange if this goes on for 4 A-sides in a row. I've always been a fan of SCANDAL's "share-the-mic" M.O.

Pre-ordered the cd+dvd version on eBay. It's too over priced compared to cdjapan. $35 on eBay and around $15 on cdjapan. I needed up paying 1,680 pesos for it. 

Permission to post admins and mods.

Has anyone encountered cdjapan declining the orders due to authorization errors?

When I first listened to it I didn't like the song at all. I thought it was really boring, but now I have it on repeat already for half an hour lol more I listen more I love it! They try a lot of new things without failing any of the songs (well a lot of people were disappointed with the Stàmp! But i loved it haha)

I really like mami's guitar and vocal parts with Haru and Rina's drumming is just a heaven to my ears XD but again..
Why the heck TOMOMI isn't singing in this A-Side too?! D:
I will be very disappointed if she won't sing in the B-side too D:

first listen was on my phone so via phone speakers. so I was like its ok. But on headphones, you can bounce with the rhythm. Finally someone knows how to tune Rina's drum to make it sound great, especially that bass drum, which now has a fat, full sound to it. Contrary to some previous releases, where the snare drum was way too loud and dominant.

Now I bob my head to it the song. Its a nice surprise song.

Couldn't even finish listening it the first time, but after a few repeats I'm really enjoying this song, It's not what I was I was expecting, and I'm a bit disappointed by that and the lack of Tomomi, however I liked it and I think is better than Stamp!, but not as good as Flashback no. 5.. 

For now I'll wait for the B side, I hope to hear Tomomi this time

My first impression was that it's just ok. Didn't really like the autotuned intro.
But now I catch myself walking around whistling the melody constantly. It's a really good song.

Hope they release the PV soon.

Aaaaand I'm in love with the song lol

It's not that pop-y sounding, and it's not something that doesn't sound like SCANDAL either. I can easily imagine them playing this song live and how it'll sound. It's very upbeat and it is danceable like how Rina said.
I'm very happy with this song.
Now I'm super excited to see the MV Happy

Don`t know what to say... i don`t like the auto-tuned intro, it`s a little too pop. I think 「Stamp」 is a little better than 「Sisters」,  after i listen more time i will start to love it. Wait for B-side. Anyway i pre-ordered both editions

I still like Stamp! better but I'm a little biased as it's the genre I love the most. But still I love Sisters. Just one beat of the song and the mood changes.... Their songs can really relate to a person's daily life and this single is an example. Imagine listening to the song while doing exercise in the morning or sipping coffeee, it's a perfect fit

Sisters sounds more like a japanese band's tune rather than Stamp (which was a western sound's experiment in my opinion) and I'm loving it. RINA's drum pattern sounds different from the usual and I couldn't be happy (if it's not... let me live in my illusion ahah)

did tomo ever wrote down a full single without singing any part of it? I doubt it. I guess this single will be like Image: a-side fully sang by haru, b-side fully sang by tomo.
