I'm not a huge fan of the MV, it gives me the impression that it is Haruna featuring Scandal... it is a little bit hard to explain, but after watching Scandal "Her" diary #2 I was expecting something more... with all the members together, to show how deep are their relation.
But I really like the song and I can't wait to receive my orders from CDJapan and JPU Records!!

It's fine, the vocalist always gets the biggest part in MVs, specially in a song like this.

I was actually expecting more from the Her diaries, those focused too much on Haruna, I wanted to see Mami and Rina talking more about the song itself.

For me, "Eternal" is their strongest single during the last four years only behind "Spice." The structure of the song reminds me of Depeche Mode's 2006 hit "Precious." I guess SCANDAL became way better as a unit because of the pandemic.

I also love Towa Tei's trip-hop-inspired remix. In my opinion, the remix would be perfect if he made the riffs in the chorus less boosted to maintain its "trippy" feel. Very nostalgic, it brings back memories from the mid-90s. Well, that's THE Towa Tei for you guys!

My girlfriend and I watched the music video premiere together last night. We both enjoyed the song and its music video. I'm pleasantly surprised how she likes the song despite not being a fan of any kind of rock music.

I didn't get round to watching diary #2 before the MV, so didn't know how the MV was like. When the MV went into the second verse and the other members hadn't appeared yet, I worried for a moment it was another Haru-only MV like "Tonight".

But on hindsight, I think the reason the emphasis on Haru is so blatant to us fans is because Scandal is one of those rare bands that has always tried to divide screentime equally amongst all members. Many other bands' MVs focus primarily on the frontperson. So we just weren't used to it, but doesn't mean it's anything out of the ordinary for bands.

P.S: the new SH banner and TGE's new DP are fantastic, I can't stop looking at them  
Cool

+1, It won't be a surprise for me if Haruna wants to try a solo career.

My stuff arrived real quick! Still listening to the song, perfect for mornings. 
Sadly I missed out on the Vinyl because my proxy service was too slow in placing my order. Welp, time to wait on Yahoo. 
That said, beautiful release and the shirt is nice as always.

My CD+T-Shirt came in earlier today, 2 days to ship from Japan to Norway, pretty good! 
T-Shirt was as expected a little tight lol, will have to slim down some more to fit in it, extra motivation there I guess Wink

Absolutely love the mv. As beautiful as I expected.

I just really don't like the remix. Doesn't fit the atmosphere of the song at all, imo.

I'm wracking my aging brain trying to figure out where I've heard the remix snare sound before. Somewhere in the 80's for sure, but on what song? Tears for Fears gets close, but not quite. Please help.
Also, on the remix, you can hear the guitar easier, for those of you who are playing at home.



Friendship. Effort. Victory.

Speaking of Tears for Fears, I was listening to their records last night. I can hear gated reverb pretty similar to songs like "Suffer the Children" (only less dark) and "The Working Hour" (less jazzy) on Rina's drums.

Really like the song and the video.

The more I listen to the remix the more I like it to the point I've been checking out more of Towa Tei's material as my only previous exposure to him was when he was in Deee Lite although I didn't know who he was until recently   LOL


Fun fact he had a new album come out the same day as Eternal released.

It's in a cardboard sleeve, the same as the one in the CD+T-Shirt edition.




I used my SCANDAL Cassette Player to listen to the tape and it plays it at a slightly slower speed than the non-analog versions, which makes HARU's voice sound a little deeper lol

I tried using my SCANDAL Record Player to listen to the vinyl, but I guess after years of not using it made the platter all shaky and now makes vinyls skip when playing them. I'd try fixing it but I'm too lazy right now Tongue

This is exactly what I though when I listened to Eternal on my old cassette player, but it sounds even better on this slightly slower bpm... even more U2-like!  New Single - 「eternal」 - Page 6 1f604

I haven't received cassette yet. But anyway, for now, I don't have any equipment which listen to. Maybe buy an old second-hand player..

I'm still waiting on my cassette. Still cursing my proxy service to be half a day too slow when placing the order for the vinyl. Should have ordered using tenso right away. Ah well, hoping to track it down eventually. I managed to find the 7" of their first singles after a while.

Looks like my cassette will arrive in the next few days. I don't have a cassette player myself, so won't get to play it, guess it will remain more as a collectible for now Tongue

I was in the same situation at first. I wanted to buy through a proxy, because Tenso sends to my country at this moment only via seamail, and it takes a very long time (2-3 month)... Finally, everything was sold out the first day. But then after a few days, about 10 copies of vinyl appeared for sale on Victor's website again. And I ordered 2 copies to Tenso's address. So far I haven't sent the package from the warehouse to my country, because I'm waiting for the goods to come from Daisy Project. I think it should be at the end of March. Most likely I won't get the package until early summer. If all arrive undamaged and you haven't bought the vinyl by then, I can let you know about my second copy...

I received my cassette from JPU. So just like you said, record played a little slower. I listened it on some Chinese player, so I'm not sure about the playback quality and there were some strange extraneous sounds, I had to make volume up so as not to hear them. it’s been so long since I listened my last cassette tape, it’s nice interesting experience to remember it again.
