Just FYI at tower records japan online, tower.jp

SCANDAL, YELLOW and HELLO WORLD, STANDARD, CD+T-shirt editions are still available for purchase.

The last time I came across a Hello world T-shirt release was at the small Shiodome Tower, ironically the big stores (i.e. Shibuya/Shinjuku in Tokyo rarely have the older T-shirt editions in store, probably due to shelf space.)

Thanks for this. I think I'd still check the tower records near Dotonbori before I try to buy online.

That's a weird cover...

Wasn't expecting Futari to be in the album, just for that, Take me Out and Koisuru Universe it's already in my Top 3 best albums  

Weirdly enough, Polkadot Stingray also has a song called "Short Short" in their album released just a few months ago (my favorite song in that album btw), just a coincidence???

If that is the case don't expect those are like "Stairway to Heaven" or "Hotel California" with prolonged guitar solos haha!
I'm sorry the regular edition looks somewhat K-Popish. IMO, the DVD edition is the best cover.
Very possibly the Hong Kong edition will come with the DVD and the corresponding cover.

10 tracks only makes it their shortest studio album to date and I don't complain. If you take out the single's a-side, usually we always get from 7 to 10 new songs per album, and HONEY perfectly fits the standard. I just hope the new songs will share the same rockish feelings of the three tracks we already know.

cd covers looks great, love the bright colours. I'm sure it was a lot of fun for the girls to do a photoshoot like that.

Darn, was kinda hoping for another photo shoot like covers, wanted to see more of their outfits.  Ehem
Don't mind the graphic design route, it's different, but the word font is just a bit too plain. 

I'm surprised with the track list, they added futari, not to mention only 10 songs, or ,7 news song. Oh well, new songs is new songs, the songs sounds like their gonna be cool, especially if 3 already great rock songs are up there.
I was gonna get the t shirt edition, but idk, it's not a bad design, idk probs still might get it.

Yellow was 13 tracks with an english version of Your Song and an instrumental one (Room No. 7, which rocks btw), Standard and Hello World also had 13. 

10 is fine.

Stairway and Hotel California solo's are genius. LOOOVE Those songs. My high school a capella group did hotel california ( i auditioned for the lead solo for that song but didn't get it ughhh)

Anyways, Thanks a million for all the info from our contributors. As much as i like the regular edition's cover  LOVE, I'll probably go with the dvd edition, because the t shirts never come in a size that fit me. Might change my mind in the next week or 2 because hey, lets face it, Having the shirt as a collectible is hella cool too.

I wonder if the DVD ver. is gonna include the typical random member postcard, cuz i'm getting that one. Just because I prefer the DVD album cover version. I wouldn't mind getting the regular version though, if it's cuz of the postcard

A postcard never comes inside of an album; it's only an occasional bonus that you might be able to get at select stores in Japan. Maybe you mean the sticker? It'll probably be the same as always where the Regular Edition only comes with a sticker (one at random out of 5 kinds) inside of the case.

I'm soo excited, oh my god! Probably gonna pre-order the Regular edition a week earlier before the actual release.

I'm honestly very happy that they're trying a different style for this album. They seem a lot more mature and rockish Clap  
I love the colors, I love the outfits, I love their hair, I love absolutely everything about it, tho kinda sad that there are fewer new songs than they had in the previous releases, but it's alright, cuz they're finally backkkk

btw, my favorite version is Regular Love cuz pantiesss lol

I checked the album covers and t-shirt design on their Instagram account. The regular edition is great and very quirky. That was the first time I've seen where the artists showing their behinds instead of their faces on an album cover. Sorry, I can't think of a better word for behind. Both the DVD and shirt editions are honestly quite boring. Meanwhile, the t-shirt design is well.......... meh!

Otherwise, I have pre-ordered the DVD edition and I can't wait to receive it!

Speaking of IG, Mamitasu is now a Grammer. Hooray!!!

Still not a big fan of the cover, I know the cutout is bad on purpose but it feels weird to me. Too many years learning how to edit images properly, doesn't feel right.

But yeah, the cover is quirky, but not vulgar, kinda cute even. "Behind" is the appropriated word here, those are some big panties, there's nothing to see there.... at max Rina's waist which is really tiny omg!

Lol, those covers are a bit... Scandalous... butt I digress.

I buy a lot of j-pop and it’s not unusual to only have 10-11 tracks.
Also someone mentioned polkadot stingray - they’re awesome!
Honey made me think of that song by jpop band Amelie, so you’ve gotta expect reused words, it doesn’t make them less original Tongue

Not gonna lie, kinda letdown by the tracklist. In part because it's only 10 songs and I hate 10-songs albums, always feels like the artists are saying "see, it's not an EP". But also because they actually decided to include "Take Me Out", a song released in 2016, and that's not a bonus track, that's part of the main tracklist.
Now, don't take me wrong, I love "Take Me Out" (it was actually the song that made me want to listen to more of them and eventually become a fan) but considering it was already included in last year's Best Album, which also had 2 newer songs, makes the song feel even more out of place and I think this move was unnecessary as it seems like they just wanted to fill the space.

Well, I hope the rest of the songs are as good as the 2 [actually new] songs we already know cause if this turns out like Yellow, I'm not gonna have much to listen to.

reilachii wrote: If you take out the single's a-side, usually we always get from 7 to 10 new songs per album, and HONEY perfectly fits the standard.

I guess that's true and me being a somewhat recent fan of them, I've never had to experience the thing about already knowing 3 or 4 songs from the album before it comes out. But again, one thing is having 2 songs that were released ~3 months ago, another is having a song from a year and a half ago.
