TBH,  the whole time I was listening to the samples I was like "Is this Scandal? " lol some of these sound like a whole different band.  But anyway,  based on the previews, I kinda like the album...just a tad.
LOVE ME DO,  is gonna take some time to grow on, it's a little too pop,  I'll wait for the full song on V day.
LOVE has a little reggae /SKA mix,  don't really listen to that genre,  but I will like to hear how Scandal takes it.
The rest of the songs sounds really cool,  I'm liking Room.no.7, Heaven na Kibun, Happy Birthday, kinda Sunday Drive and Pizza Party.  
I couldn't stop giggling at Your song

For now I am putting Heaven na Kibun and Konya wa Pizza Party as my least favorites based on the album... But they're really taking this one seriously and very differently... I am thinking this album maybe a combination of QAT and Hello World

@hanautasancho - I am with NathalieNightmare on this Konya Wa Pizza Party and Heaven Na Kibun look most promising for me. Room No 7 to. Love me do - can do Wink. Rest on average. Do not hear any outright bad song, so that makes me happy Happy

I think I can't pick my favourite previews, I'm kinda into all of them. But if I could, I'd pick "LOVE ME DO". Very different from their usual stuff, but I highly appreciate that. It really is an happy album. To be honest, it turns out I'm more excited about "YELLOW" than I was about "HELLO WORLD", although I learned to love this one afterwards. But I kinda like when my expectations are somehow frustrated hahaha I think it can be a good thing after all... Of course I'm judging by the previews, which can be inappropriate, but the girls sound more self-confident than never before. It seems like I was totally wrong about "LOVE", but now I'm more curious to hear the full version in HQ. And about "Your song"... I wasn't expecting to understand their pronunciation without reading the lyrics haha because it still is a very usual issue among japanese singers (nowadays there are some exceptions like SekaOwa's Fukase, [Alexandros]' Kawakami Yoohei and miwa, to list a few), so I'm satisfied/honored/pleased they tried to do it mainly because I'm pretty sure they did it to fans from overseas (which includes me haha).

Having heard all of the samples, I'm really looking forward to YELLOW!

Previously, I thought that HELLO WORLD was their best release thus far in terms of song quality and overall polish. I'm interested to see how their new growth as artists into the full versions.

That said, I'm liking the heaviness of Room No.7.  It won't bother me if it turns out being an instrumental opener, as I like how they can set up the feeling for the rest of the album.  It's definitely longer than VAMPS' openers, though not as long as GACKT's....w
Other ones I'm looking forward to the full versions are Heaven na Kibun and Konya wa Pizza Party....w

As for Your song's English version, I thought the girls' English was getting better....w
I'm really glad they tried, though! w
It also sounds like they re-recorded the instrumentals, as it sounds heavier than the original.

So far no surprises regarding the new songs. It's nice that Tomomi gets another song. I will wait for the album release before I judge it any further.

Based on the previews, I like Love Me Do and SUKI SUKI, Sunday Drive, Konya Wa Pizza Party , and Love sound kind of interesting, I can't really form an opinion based on Heaven No Kibun, Happy Birthday is ok but I have a weird thing about "holiday" related songs, I can't tell what they're saying in Your Song even though it's in English, and every other song is either meh or I feel indifferent about them. I mean none of them are outright horrible, but they don't seem to capture my interest very much for whatever reason. Also based on what I can hear in the previews, I'm kind of disappointed there isn't a Mami vocals song this time around.

I won't be saying more because there's no way I'll comment extensively on 30-second long, really low quality samples, but I believe this new album will be quite a departure from what we've been used to hear from them. I'm really excited to get the album, there's nothing better about music than being able to watch your favorite artists grow and experiment. What a great time to be a Scandal fan!

Wow! It sounds great. Could this be the thing they're shooting for? The one where they had a 70's ish look to them (Tomomi wearing pink, etc).

It's....um...its...eh...its OK I guess, too overly processed for me, the instruments gets so buried under those syncs that my ears have to shovel deep down to hear them, especially during the chorus. I guess it's to add the pop effect but it's not really my thing.

But I do like Haruna vocals in this, the high notes are killer. The English bits are cool, cheesy but cool. I like the "dance with me under the moon " and "hope you feel the same" parts.

Still no guitar solo from Mami, hope to hear some from the other tracks.

Another thing, the song somehow gives me the feeling of an Elvis Presley kind of song

I hear a bit of similarities, except SCANDAL added their own flavour to their own song. I'm not gonna be surprised if SCANDAL was inspired by Elvis as he's one of the most iconic artist in history

I did realize that Rina didn't have a solo songs and I was quite happy with that (she just does not have a nice voice i.e they always over auto-tuned it) but for Mami I am quite sad!!:'(
Can't wait to see the PV!
And their "oh la la la" sounds so frenchie, love that of course!x)

Hearing the snippets of the rest of the album raises my level of anticipation. Did I hear cowbell? Was that reggae ringing in my ears? Heard new guitar sounds and vocal arrangements, which for me is great. It shows the ladies are not afraid to try new stuff and get out of their comfort zone, but also this doesn't sound like they tried to force this process. It seems natural. I think Heaven Na Kibun & Love are the songs I'm really looking forward to hearing.
You know Room No. 7 could be a short punky burst of goodness, not necessarily an instrumental.

I was looking at the English lyrics to Your song to see if they actually singed the English translation, but I couldn't find what they were saying in the lyrics. I heard "there's more than one way to walk there" and "hope you find whatever leaves your feet..seat? " and "speak for yourself ".  Maybe it's different lyrics or something. Nerd

They most likely changed up the lyrics to make them flow and sound better in English.

Help me, I'm in love with this song. So damn catchy. It has that very specific bittersweet of those dizzy and mixed feelings we feel when we're falling in love for someone. Truly addicted; can't stop listening. These arrangementes will sound superb in HQ; can't wait to hear. You can judge me if you want, but the true is that I love when they go pop, hahaha. And I think their english is almost on point here.
