Tonight’s concert

Scandal in live at Budoukan 2012 ScandalScandal

SCANDAL are:

Haruna (vocal & guitar)

Mami (guitar & vocal)

Tomomi (bass & vocal)

Rina (drums & vocal)

While it may be unlikely that we’ll ever see another female band out of Japan with the depth and full~circle variety of Princess Princess, SCANDAL has got to simply be one of the very best and well~rounded all girl rock/pop bands coming out of Japan today~. Firstly there is their undeniable musicianship~* which demands both attention and appreciation through the experiencing of their unique brand of music and with such varied styles and an edge in diversity which sparkles from tight and super~charged progressive to jangly~psychedelic to punk~y to sweet~ly layered harmonies….you can readily hear an array of influences encompassing 60′s, 80′s, 90′s pop/rock. SCANDAL also has a hand in the writing of the majority of their lyrics, either co~writing or writing them in entirety and speaking of lyrics a major player in how SCANDAL’s sound works so well in a somewhat unique fashion is that each band member shares in the (“lead”) vocals in both solo and ensemble arrangements and they’re heard seamlessly in each song from track to track really giving SCANDAL such an identity of their own~. And with Haruna, Mami, Tomomi and Rina having such distinctly different voices (Tomomi’s got that wonderful baby voice!) think Bangles (in the sense of vocal uniqueness), although again here through perfect vocal arrangements their voices aren’t heard as overpowering leads for the most part on any given track, but rather as an “ensemble” being allowed to lend solo vocal flavors in essence giving each song a most colorful and lively personality verses a one~vocal show~.

And technically? Impressive~!!, as the musicianship of the girls in SCANDAL speak…or rather play~* for themselves!

Scandal Japan Title Match Live 2012-Scandal vs. Budoukan Bluray

So tonight we’ll be watching Scandal’s 2012 concert “Scandal Japan Title Match Live- Scandal vs. Budoukan” as here I’ve used the Bluray edition to present a few of my favorite songs and performances from this outstanding concert. In all the concert runs approximately 135 minutes with flawless performances of many of Scandals beloved singles and album tracks alike, here I’ve chosen six performances which I find myself replaying over and over again with one being a beautiful rock ballad while the others are melodically aggressive in nature and pure rock –n- roll by heart, and I hope you’ll get turned on too by the wondrously hot sensation which is Scandal! Btw my favorite member takes the right side of the stage ^^。
