TOKYO SKYSCRAPER! Tomo is laying down some SERIOUS grooves on this one. That bass is almost a lead instrument in this song. Chorus is awesome too!

I think among their 3 major albums Baby Action will garner the most mixed opinions... the good thing for sure is that their musicality is not stagnant, just hope that in this process of evolving they will learn the styles that endeared them to fans and make use of it in the future...

Track 2: is very catchy, now I'm suffering from LSS from it

after listening all (i spoiled it since this is SCANDAL's program, we should listen), i give my stance.

overall, i can say they are experimenting all sorts of style in this album. and apart from all the songs from singles inside, i find their new songs RAW, so raw to an extent i'm getting unusual about it. but after all, this is the 1st time the girls set their own album, own tone, own music in this way, so this a big plus.

all of the songs played, Appletachi no Dengon, Tokyo Skyscrapper, Sono Toki, Sekai wa Kimi Darake no Rain, and one piece very good. GLAMOROUS YOU on the other hand, surprise me, cause i thought it would have the same standard as SCANDAL BABY or EVERYBODY SAY YEAH. maybe is this unfamiliarity makes me feels this album raw.

must listen to few times then you can see where they are setting this. this new Raw, in my opinion, is their improved music. they played better, a lot of different styles but wonderfully done.

side note: why no BURN?? that's RINA composed one. NO WAY D:

@wat: No problem. I just responded to @berserk's suggestion... And he makes a valid point, too. We should post the vids before they get unlisted. :P

Here's my two cents:
Spoiler:
After listening to all of the available radio rips, and also taking into account their recent singles, it's safe to assume that BABY ACTION is definitely not "BEST SCANDAL 2". In fact, I think of the new album as a hybrid of their two previous albums. It certainly has the playfulness and the experimental style that TEMPTATION BOX has. But it also captures the sound of BEST SCANDAL in a way; their "rock sound" is leaning more towards BEST SCANDAL than TEMPTATION BOX, yet still different...

I was listening to TOKYO SKYSCRAPER, and while they were talking I heard Mami say "disco" (probably talking about how the song sounds). Perhaps I was right in saying earlier that GLAMOROUS YOU was "groovy", because apparently this is how BABY ACTION is different from BEST SCANDAL. Their "rock sound", while leaning towards BEST SCANDAL, has that funky, old-school feel to it. And I have a feeling that this theme/concept for the new album is what's going to "polarize" the fans.

@Pally is right. We have to wait until "the real thing" comes out so we can listen to it properly. But for now... Well, I seem to be enjoying the album tracks a lot (especially GLAMOROUS YOU, TOKYO SKYSCRAPER, and one piece). If this is any sign of things to come, then I think BABY ACTION will make for a different yet interesting addition to our SCANDAL playlists by the time it is released. :P

Good answer and I feel the same way about what I've heard so far. The "rough" setup is really working out. The songs are more upbeat, faster and way hookier than BEST SCANDAL but the "sound" is old SCANDAL. You're right about the hybrid nature, the rougher, rock sound of BEST SCANDAL plus the pop sensibilities of TB plus increased tempo (!). In a way, I think this is them remaining true to their roots while showing off their new found chops and confidence.

Also true is that "old school" feel. I didn't quite know how to put that in words. Some of the posted stuff especially Appletachi and Skyscraper somehow reminds me of anime and tokusatsu themes from the 80s. Or maybe I'm imagining it and getting nostalgic in my old age Happy

Overall, I'm pleased that the girls aren't getting complacent and standing still. Definitely not from the "it ain't broke don't fix it school"

And MAMI saying disco when talking about Skyscraper? Ho yeah! Check that bassline and drumming..

Baby Action is one of most RAW album from SCANDAL..Guitar scratch is so RAW from HARUNA and MAMI, RINA drum beat is fast and upbeat, TOMO bassline is more powerful..no doubt.

and what i catch from BA album is.. hmmmmm ...This is TOMO album...TOMOMI dominating in many song from BA...no doubt, TOMO Bass is nice especially TOKYO SKYSCRAPER, and TOMO voice is everywhere.

A rough translation of what RINA said one piece is about:

"This song is about the future, written about when a dream came true. A dream that we've always been talking about is doing a one-man live at Osaka Jou Hall. The day that that dream came true, the place we dreamed about, it was written while imagining the scenery we first saw when we opened our eyes. Since we wrote about something that would happen in the past as present, we had to make sure that we properly remember everything, and because we made this song, we want the dream that we never think will happen to come true. For that day, doing our best every day, one step at a time, singing this song together with everyone at Jou Hall is our dream, and a promise we made with each other." (by RINA)

tentative first listen reactions: <-- (eh?) Facepalm (this is a little long so be forewarned..)

Spoiler:
1. Glamorous You - damn.. makes me feel good inside and the rock vibe really makes me .smile. it may be diff. from ESY and SCANDAL Baby for a first track but a good song on its own none the less (who said SCANDAL has to have fast rockin songs as first tracks?)

2. Sono Toki, Sekai wa Kimi Darake no Rain - wow.. reminds me a lot of punk.. I like! there is this very catchy and cute line that Tomo seems to keep repeating that makes me .smile. again..

3. Love Survive - fell in love with this already.. such catchy melodies and riffs! and to think it's a more rockin' song than some of their previous efforts..

4. Sparkling - although so-so in my ears (as of now), some of the guitar riffs here are really rockin.. and I like the way they do with the vocals, backing vocals and stuff.. but I think this will grow on with me in time.. (like ALL of their songs.. .cool. )

6. Appletachi no Dengon - wow, another rockin song! this really makes me want to say a controversial statement.. it's starting to look like, imo, "SCANDAL sounding like SCANDAL again.." (as I said, imo so, peace! Peace Onion

7. Tokyo Skyscrapper - this song really shows SCANDAL's experimentation of diff. sounds.. this song has a nostalgic vibe as well as a disco vibe to it.. Onion Smile

8. Pride - we all know this is a cool song but imo it doesnt fit that much with the songs? oh wth it's still a rockin song..

9. Haruka - okay.. what I said ^ sooo much applies to this song more but, hey.. it's Haruka..

10. SCANDAL Nanka Buttobase - now.. this song among the 4 singles before (except Love Survive, fits well the most!) really fits well with the album and is actually imo an early preview of what BABY ACTION would sound like (a bit)..

11. Very Special - reminds of rock n' roll.. lol and also reminds me of BEST SCANDAL album; Ring! Ring! Ring!, etc.) a cool and catchy song

12. one piece - now this is a slow song that imo fits well with the album.. reminds me of START (in a way).. Please Onion a nice ending to a rockin yet nostalgic album..

now.. these are my first thoughts of the radio rips so far and I was typing while listening to capture that feeling.. just want to share my comments..

being a SCANDAL fan since nearly their indie days and being one who loved their indie songs.. so far I am very pleased with what I heard here.. Thumbs Onion

@macdyne73
"True to their roots", indeed. And I'm thankful that they are. (For this album, at least.) I must say though, and I think I mentioned this already in another thread, that I do miss their old sound. And so when I listened to the album tracks, part of me was glad that they did "go back" in some way. But of course, being the ever-evolving group of gorgeous and talented women that they are, they mixed it up with their "brand new chops" and a bit of experimenting with this old-school feel. And what they ended up with is yet another pleasant surprise for us fans. :)

The anime/tokusatsu reference is spot-on! Haha. I guess we owe that to the "horns section" in Appletachi and SKYSCRAPER. (Again, something new from them. And I applaud them for that, because it worked wonders for both songs.) And the bassline and the drums in SKYSCRAPER, damn... Now that's "funky". Never thought I'd say that about a SCANDAL song. But it is, and it's awesome. :D

@Jade
Thanks for translating that bit on one piece. Was actually wondering about what they were talking about, myself. :P We will all be waiting for that dream to happen, for sure. If anyone deserves it, it's them. :)

Plus, it would make for an awesome concert DVD as well. Just think: First, Ebisu Liquid Room for the BEST SCANDAL DVD. Then, Zepp Tokyo for the TEMPTATION BOX DVD... What could top those off more than a show at Osaka-jou Hall for the BABY ACTION DVD? It's probably a long-shot, but if it did happen, that would just be freaking epic. :D
