This news excites me. I hope he can bring a great sounding album to us all. I want to hear great separation and the instruments and vocals pop. I thought Stamp! & Sisters were 2 of their better sounding recordings, purely on a aural level, so I pray the East & West can work wonders again! I also LOVE Stamp, by the way.

Aww, I don't like the sounds of "mastering". Sounds like a cover-up for lazy recordings…

You sure?
"Mastering is the final step of audio post-production. The purpose of mastering is to balance sonic elements of a stereo mix and optimize playback across all systems and media formats. Traditionally, mastering is done using tools like equalization, compression, limiting and stereo enhancement.


[size=37]Mastering also ensures uniformity and consistency of sound between multiple tracks on an album. Ultimately, what mastering does is create a clean and cohesive feeling across all your audio.[/size]


[size=37]A good mastering job makes an album consistent and balanced across all tracks. Without mastering, individual tracks can sound disjointed in relation to each other."[/size]

I do not much like the news Tom Coyne 
is responsible for the mastering 
I think he has not worked with any artist similar to SCANDAL 
can ruin a great job if lleba in wrong direction

I hope to be wrong

I am thinking of getting the DVD version, because the T-shirt doesn't excite me much. I was wondering what sort of stuff they have put on their previous DVD versions?

The DVD for Hello World came with a mini making of the album documentary on it that I watched only once because I had no idea what any of them were saying.  Sweating

Ok, I assumed it would be in Japanese, if it's only a short making of doco, I have to decide whether I want to pay the extra ~$5 I guess, for something I might watch once like you.
Hmmm

I'm not sure what's on this album though, because I have no idea what a Room No. 7 opening movie is . . .

Looking forward to hearing the English ver. of "Your Song", it's one of my favourite songs and works great as a concert song. It'd be nice to hear them perform that version live sometime.
Like at another concert in the UK. Please

I remember there was a blog post by Rina(?) where there are a lot of pizzas... Maybe that was the inspiration or could be that they finished the song of Konya wa Pizza Party haha

Yeah you're right, and just so happens that she stated in that same blog that they completed an upbeat party tune.  Pizza...Party... eh eeehhhh Common

I just watched their latest show at Budokan and now I'm officially excited to hear the new album. To be honest, until now I was a little underwhelmed about the new release. But this show was amazing, I could even say they're at their best. They sound and seem more confident than never before. "LIFE IS A JOURNEY" is definitely one of my favourite songs of the past year and I'd love to hear more songs like this one on "YELLOW". Pretty curious to hear "LOVE"; judging by the title, I think it will be epic.

When did Haruna become an asian femme fatale? I mean, she's shining, so fresh and mature. She looks like some character from Kill Bill or Memoirs of a Geisha (which is pretty good, at least for me).

Just did a quick check in Photoshop, Haruna indeed looks great as Kiddo. I wonder what she will do next with her hair. Her Sisters era hairstyle is still my favorite so far.

I hope there will be some sort of footage from their YELLOW tour, there will be so many new songs we need to see the live versions of.

If the t-shirt will look like the black "Skating Skull Rucca" shirts SCANDAL worn during the Holidays, I'll order the LE. I'm not really a fan of LE-DVD editions unless if clips of concert and live shows are included.

So if Your song eng version is a bonus track, that means initially there were/is 12 tracks on the album.

I still have no idea what an Opening Movie is supposed to be . . . I mean is it like basically one of those intro videos they put up on screens at the start of concerts?

What can we read out of the fact that they re-recorded 'Your Song' with English lyrics? It assume there must be another reason that it just being an amazing sing-along during the last tour, right?

I can't wait to see the credits for the songs, we already know the singles and 2 album tracks of them (Suki.Suki and Chiisana honoo)
I have a feeling  Konya wa Pizza Party is the works of Tomomi, and one of the "Love" songs is a Rina written song.

Heheh well at least we found out about one of them. ^-^
Its been said on a recent radio pro. that Morning Sun is written by Rina and composed by none other than Mami.

lol just leave it to Rina to write songs based off/made for movie/media. Sisters, Chiisana Honoo, Weather report, Rainy,etc.  Smile

37 days until the release of the album! I'm so excited I'm counting down the days. That's really bad, because the wait kills me. I have very little patience.
