you also can use VLC.

There is a SCANDAL puzzle, release/sold by a radio broadcasting station, but it seems to be that you can buy it only when you have a japanese address. (and it seems to be sold out). Any suggestion what I can do now?

Your question has absolutely nothing to do with STANDARD. Please be more careful about where you post things.

Regarding the puzzle, the only thing you could really do now is to try to get one off of Yahoo! Auctions Japan by commissioning a deputy service like Rinkya to buy one for you, but none have popped up on YAJ yet. You'll have to wait to see if any get listed later.

Does anyone have an update on the album sales?

Generasia doesn't seem to update it anymore... and I was wondering if the sales went a little bit up for Christmas. Would be so awesome if they could break the 60k barrier.

PS/OT : Could you guys post the puzzle picture here or in a dedicated thread, just curious.

My fav songs are; Uchiage Hanabi, Orange Juice, Metronome, Hachigatsu, Weather Report, Koi no GESTALT Hookai
i always listen it in a never ending loop :p
would love to watch the live version of those songs, i hope they'll play it often
 
this is a great album, so much power, IMO this album was made for a Live performance, it's a good thing they can improvised in the middle of the song Happy

Hello guy´s,
It's been a while that Standard came out though I would like to to say something now.
It´s different from the older Album´s because, I didn´t liked most of the songs from the beginning at all. But I´ve gotten used to them and after a short time I loved the whole Album. I think the best songs of the lbum are OVER DRIVE, Metronome, Awanai Tsumori no genki de ne, Hachigatsu and Namida yo Hikare.
Especially the Solo from Metronome is incredible.

Just my two cent:)

While I freaking love the album, I don't love it as much as I loved QaT when it came out.

This album is wonderfully experimental and full of depth for the repetitive listening session, with some new element to discover or unravel.....


BUT!!!!!


It's just so goddamingly riddled with electronic sounds I almost forget it's supposed to be a pop-rock album by SCANDAL!!!!

Maybe it's my inner rocker/metalhead speaking but hey, here's hoping I will like the next one more.

Standard is not perfect, but it actually is really good. At first I didn't liked it much, I thought that I only bought it for the T-shirt, lol. But, after listening to it a few more times, it grew on me. I probably like it more that QaT, dunno. Plus, it has all the singles from 2013, which were really amazing.

I still think it's their best album by a fair margin. It's also my favorite album of 2013.

I don't know if it's popular opinion or not but I think it's their best album so far and I have big expectations for their next album because of that ><
I've become really addicted to this album since it came out and even though I sometimes listen to some tracks alone, I like to just listen to whole album at once when I have long travel. Every track is unique, even if I'm not really fond of "pop" sound of Brand New Wave for example, I still kinda like it, it's so positive. Tracks like Weather report and Hachigatsu are so emotional, and final song STANDARD is, for me, the best song they've ever recorded : )

There is no popular opinion, everyone has their own preference and it's great like that. I think all their albums are amazing but if you ask me I would also say that STANDARD is their best but mostly because it's the newest with the recent songs. It's easier to have that feeling because the songs still a bit "new" compared to older albums.

Interesting point, but I've already fallen a bit out of touch with some QaT songs but still love the "oldies". Some songs are just inherently better than others I guess

Standard is their best album since Temptation Box for me (excluding Encore Show, because its a compilation). Metronome, Hachigatsu and Standard are now among my favourite songs. The only songs that spoil the broth for me a little bit are Brand New Wave and Overdrive. I normally skip right to Uchiagehanabi and listen through the album from there.

I highly doubt it, the album sold good and it's a deluxe edition.

Maybe she meant on eBay at a high cost?
