Well, I'm not that familiar with Japanese music either, but 1. all-female (pop)-rock bands are far from popular (compared to idol music or early/mid 2000s Japan, at least) 2. I'm quite sure they are the best-selling among Japanese all-female bands these days (for comparsion chatmonchy's latest album sold around 33,500, Aldious' - 11,000, NEGOTO's - 11,000, Silent Siren's - 8,800, Stereopony's - 4,700, Akai Koen's - 4,000+, SHOW-YA's - below 3,000, FLiP's - 2,600, Gacharic Spin's - 1,800, ecosystem's - 1,500, exist trace's - 1,200, Oreskaband's - 1,100, LoVendor's - 1,000, Drop's' - 850, HAPPY BIRTHDAY's - 690, Zwei's - 650, Natsu Iro's - 385...)

BTW I hope STANDARD will chart in Taiwan too (QAT and SCANDAL SHOW charted there...)
That is why they have the bragging rights to call themselves the "Japan Girl Bands Representative". Cool

In order to have received a poster from CDJ, you needed to have ordered the album when the "External Bonus" button was still up.

You ordered it after the album came out, right? Although they still had the "First Press Available" button up (meaning a randomly included sticker will be in your album, and it was) when you ordered it, the "External Bonus" button had already been removed/the posters were already 'sold out' a few weeks before the album was released.

After waiting for a few excruciating weeks (I didn't hear the leaks/previews of the new songs for the sake of surprising myself Tongue) my album finally arrived Rock on 
Needless to say, it's definitely worth the time and patience :')
I think this is the first time that every song in an album actually clicks in with me right after the first listen LOL

If yes then SCANDAL is far ahead and that is an awesome news because it means that there is nothing to fear for the future. Compared to them SCANDAL sells a lot more so this must mean their company must be happy Happy
As an Aldious and SHOW-YA fan, these are actually depressing news... ROFL

But anyway, regardless of being a male or female band, I think in terms of j-rock alone, SCANDAL is one of the best selling artists nowadays, so no need to worry about they stopping because of money problems.

Just to stay on topic: back when they released the previews, Standard was my favorite (new) song, but Metronome took its place. Standard sounds like Everybody Say Yeah, not literally, but the kind of song it will be great for getting people pumped up during lives. For listening quietly with your headphones on, I think Metronome is a more "complete" rock song.

I really like the album. It's a big different from previous albums. 

One of the main criticisms I have is that it feels too "heavily edited". Already have great singles in the album that I'll always listen to. 

The instruments are great, Mami is kicking it up a notch. Timo singing is really a great compliment to te songs.

Close to 56.000 copies sold.

55,908 : http://www.generasia.com/wiki/Standard

But I guess it won't go much higher than that, maybe close to 60k in a lot of weeks if it keeps selling a little bit?

After listening for a few weeks and letting it sink in...

STANDARD is a pretty damn good album. I love it. Probably my favorite or close to favorite.

Metronome - best song in the album. Perhaps one of my top 5.
August - A good one too
OJ - It really does sound like what OJ would sound like

Love the alubm.

I wonder if Christmas can really have an effect on the sales at that point. Would be really awesome if it could boost the sales again a bit to reach the 60k mark. Let's hope so! Happy

Get http://www.dvdfab.com/passkey-lite.htm this.
The lite version works with DVDs without limitations. It removes any sort of encryption like region codes. Alternative is any DVD but the trial is limited. You could also change your dvd drives region but you can only do that up to 5 times.

If you can't play it using VLC then you can try changing the region of your computer's DVD reader. I really suggest you try playing the DVD with VLC before you do this though.

Just be careful because the hardware limits the number of times you can do this before it gets stuck in that region. You can only do this a limited number of times.

Right click on the dvd drive in My Computer, go to properties. Next go to the hardware tab and hit properties (make sure the drive is selected). In the new window click the DVD region tab, and select Japan (or what ever region you want to change it to).



Edit:

Or you can try what reachie suggested Happy
