Hm, sorry to say that, but now I think I overreacted a bit about "Flashback No.5". It's just an ok song. I feel it lacks something. I don't mind the synth thing - I actually like it. But the song overall sounds bland to me. There's too much "yeah-yeah" and "woah-woah". Still preferring "Stamp!", no doubts. Maybe it sounds better in HQ. Hope it grows on me.

So... No TOMOMI' solo vocals on the entire single this time? I think it's the first time it happens, isn't? If I'm right, then that's sad, 'cause I really love when they share vocals.

I was really pumped up when I heard the preview. Flashback No. 5 is a good song but it is nothing so special. I've heard better songs from the band.

Really upbeat and fun song. My first listen i also thought this shouldve been the single, but subsequent plays its a bit lacking and Stamp feels more like a fuller song. I could see why this is a b-side. Still really good. I really like where theyre going so far.

I personally really liked both stamp and flashback no.5 :3 I also love how they're entirely different from each other but included in the same single  CANTA Thumbs

Flashback No. 5 is easily the better song after listening to the full track. A few times I'm hearing auto-tune in places where I'm sure I'm not supposed to (not just in the spots where it's used for effect), but it's not enough to kill the song for me. I think this should have been the A side.

I've sadly been informed Haru is not saying the "f" word. This makes me sad.

I am happy that it is not the case, they don't need to use such language in my opinion.

Kinda sad that we won't get to hear any Tomomi leading vocals on that single. Hopefully things will get back to normal next time.

"Flashback No. 5" is great but putting "Stamp!" as the A side was a cool (and even bold) move, and a nice change of pace. The B side is way too obvious, plus it sounds a lot like some of their older songs. They need to show that they are evolving. Still looking forward to hearing it in full with HD sound.

Hey joon thanks for noticing. Sadly no. I got fascinated by Sjögren's syndrome, that's why I used it as my username. Then again, thanks mate. Cheers.

Queens Are Trumps would be that song if you would like to hear Haruna curse. I like that song, but not for that reason. Mostly because of the intro and that cool vibe it gives off.

On subject: I'm really excited for this single. Stamp, days after hearing it, is still playing in my head a lot, and I'm singing "ya ya, da da" a lot too. For Flashback, that'll be my new procrastination song, haha, it's really intense, so I enjoy the song too.

I don't know, having Haruna mostly sing in both songs is kinda new and  refreshing, don't get me wrong I love Timo's voice, but not every single song they release has to have her sing in it. Haruna's main role is lead vocals and it clearly shows in these two songs, I don't see anything wrong with that.
They gotta give Timo's voice a break too. Onion Tea

Its like how the Stamp! pv is refreshing and different because the girls aren't holding their instruments, since a lot of their previous pv's shows them doing so. And its refreshing for those who want to see them make a pv without their instruments, ( tho they did made 2). So Stamp! and Flashback are like a breath of fresh air for those peeps who mostly love Haru's voice or those who still aren't very fond of Tomomi's voice. (yes they are still fans who feel that way Surprised )

I was actually kinda hoping for a single where Haruna play lead vocals in all songs, the closest we had was the Shunkan Sentimental single. 
Though I'm still hoping for a mostly Mami vocal songs. .love.

I really like Flashback No. 5. The intro is really nice and it's a great lead up to the actual song. It'll be nice to hear it in a bit better quality when the single is actually released~ I really like the single overall, both Stamp! and Flashback have their strengths that make them good songs and they kind of compliment each other. Stamp! is a more relaxing, laid back rock song while Flashback is a more fast paced one.

Oricon NINKI* for this week:

01 492.33 Nogizaka46 - Taiyou Knock
02 61.20 Mizuki Nana - Exterminate
03 55.54 Angerme - Nanakorobi Yaoki / Gashinshotan / Mahotsukai Sally
04 50.51 EXILE SHOKICHI - Don't Stop the Music
05 30.23 Lovely☆Doll - Calendar Girl**
06 26.15 SCANDAL - Stamp!
07 21.17 Ohara Sakurako - Manatsu no Taiyou
08 20.29 GALETTe - air summer / Shijou no Ai
09 20.19 SPYAIR - Fire Starter
10 19.88 lyrical school - Wonder Ground**

* The NINKI ratings are the results of a POLL conducted by Oricon indicating degree of interest/degree of purchase intention in an upcoming release. Although the ratings are never a true reflection of sales, it does give a strong prediction about where the single/album will place in terms of popularity amongst the Japanese public. However, they are NOT an indication of how it will perform in terms of chart positioning and total sales for the week.

** These 2 are "cheating" (they've released 1 day earlier than the rest)

I ordered on July 1st and ordered 2 other things at the time... did you order later then that?  Could be time of order or size of order that dictates priority. 

But it should ship tonight US time if it's in shipping process now.

It has been 'In Shipping Process' for a couple of days now. So maybe it's just random how they pack it. Maybe since there are likely more shipments headed for the USA, they prioritize that first.
