It took me a few listens to “get” the way the new songs worked. Now I can’t get them out of my head—just great. Solfaman posted a lyrics transcription on his YouTube of “Freedom Fighters” so I used it to work through a rough english translation for myself. I found a high level of social/political attitude, which for me is a welcome turn. Musically it also feels fresh, not just a return to “old SCANDAL”—good old hard driving rock yeh but really doesn’t remind me of anything they’ve done before. I notice one familiar thing—and better than ever—TOMO’s disco-style bass line. Back in the 70s and 80s most punk rockers and metalheads would spit at any hint of disco but who worries about that stuff today? There are some early SCANDAL interviews where they’re asked about their musical genre, and they say “we want to be our own genre.” Right on.

FREEDOM FIGHTERS is something that I've been waiting for, but HELLO just stucks in my head. Haru's voice is sooo gentle. Both songs deserve to be in this album.
I also translated HELLO into Thai. Although i'm not sure some Thai fans are here or not. Whistle

Now I like Hello, because it reminds me of the free and easy rock of their early career. Freedom Fighters is a good song, but like Take Me out, it will take some getting used to.

Unfortunately, it's going to be too small for you. The previous shirts were printed on a Japanese size L, which is equivalent to a US size M. It'll most likely be the same with this one. The quality has always been very good; the print is always crisp + clear and the fabric is very soft and smooth.
