My first impressions:

Take Me Out

First play: I don't like this song (too bad, I was expecting it to be good)
Second play: I love this song (what just happened from one play to the next?)
Third play and onwards: I love this song a lot, it might end up as my favorite SCANDAL song released this year.

It is one of their best newer songs (Hello World and onwards), I hope they play it on their EU tour.

Dobondobondo songs
Took a few plays to get used to them but they are very good, I had really missed their music.

I want you
It's good but it doesn't get anywhere close to "Oyasumi". She set a very high standard with that song so it is not surprising. "Almond Crush" also sounds a bit better to me.

Is there a PV of Dobondobondo Dungeon? I'm just curious.

This single's rankings is not that good compare to their previous singles. But i hope the numbers of sale is not bad.

Nope. They've never mentioned anything about making PVs for either Dobondobondo song.

September's issue of Go!Go!Guitar has the score for Take Me Out and I Want You.

As for the double pedal or not debate, looking at the score, there doesn't seems to be a need for it at all.

Thank you TGE for the reply.... Nice One

I was just assuming that those side b songs have a mv like in Taiyou Scandalous where they introduce the Almond Crush and Dobondobondo groups..

I want you feels like it was ripped form the late 80's/early 90's: and while it is probably not an amazing song, it fits, for me personally, solidly into a 90's, almost techno-pop genre. I guess I'm biased, cos it suits my taste... Could almost imagine Perfume singing it, I'm weird.

Take Me Out and Heaven na Kibun feel very complementary to each other. If their sound goes in this direction I have no complaints! Loving Take Me Out more with each listen!
I Want You does sound like what Rina was going for. It has echoes of OMD in it. Ok song for me. It was a little better than I first thought when I got the chance go hear the HD version in my headphones. 
Dobondobondo Dungeon is fun and I like it a little more than Sekapero. Glad to have some more Dobondobondo!

Dobondobondo dungeon and Sekapero are two great songs, I kinda like them better than No theme and Cherry Jam (I do actually really like those songs).  But yeah,  Dungeon is hecka awesome, I wouldn't mind seeing a live version of the battle.
I want you' ended up being a Meh song for me, the keyboards are kinda nice but Rina cutesy wootsey vocal style in this isn't my cup of tea. Ooyasumi sounds better vocal wise and music wise IMO, even though I disliked that song at first listen Ehem

I do like Rina's song and it's my favorite on this single. I also agree that Oyasumi is way better. It's determined by the genre, can't help it. 'I want you' has a nice 80's vibe in it.

I'm addicted to Sekapero right now lol
It's such a fun, catchy song. Definitely my fav from Dobondobondo Love 

On my first listen to "I want you" I wasn't sure if I liked it that much, but after a few listens, it's got a certain charm to it. It's nice. Very Rina.

"Dungeon" isn't really my style of music, but maybe I'll grow to like it later on. Right now it's just "there" lol

I really wish the Take Me Out MV was edited a little different. Way too many cuts and it makes it hard to enjoy it for me :/
Which really sucks cuz I love the look of it and the girls look awesome
Mami's black/blonde/blue hair looks so magical lol

Excuse po :3 How did you track your order? Per CDjapan mine has already been here since 27? Is there another way to track it or was I perhaps wrong?

Same. CDJapan emailed me and gave me a tracking number. The package arrived July 27th also. Unfortunately, it's stuck in the customs inspection. You can actually check it via philpost website. Still with the same answer. Stuck with customs inspection. Sad

Since it's weekend. There's a big chance that it'll be a week to receive the package. Sad

Here are my brief thoughts after listening to the single from Spotify:

"Take Me Out" reminds me of Red Hot Chili Peppers meets 1981-84 line-up of King Crimson. I consider this as an good progressive rock-influenced song because of its fast rhythm, occasional odd-time signatures, filled with catchy lyrics. Rina's drumming is quite powerful with shades of Bill Bruford. It music video is alright except for the frames changes too quickly on the dizzying level.

"I want You" is an okay verse-chorus-verse song. The tune reminds me of Garbage-meets-Gwen Stefani. However, I'm really disappointed on the overuse of vocoders on Rina's vocals. It feels like her vocal prowess is being underestimated.
