(Just like leaving the theater too early, you know before the credits have all rolled on past then revealing a special preview or ending or just something unexpected which those who’ve already left the theater had then missed =/!…so you may want to stay tuned to this entire post till its very ending as there’s a special unexpected surprise from SCANDAL♥ there which any fan wouldn’t want to miss, I promise it’s that wonderful!)

Hard to imagine that Scandal just released a few days ago on October 2nd their now 5th album already!…as the garage band that could continues to add to their already deep catalog of signature rock. And while Scandal’s sound evolves inevitably into a much more polished mesh of power chords, sweet harmonies with an always driven backbeat and rhythm their ascension into a maturing rock group has no signs of shedding away any of their garage roots as their music throughout this latest collective effort solidly maintains their musical salute to keeping that unmistakable edge with all of its rawness still intact. Indeed too one of Scandal’s most beloved qualities has to be their ability to keep their music hard while still blending those trademark vocal harmonies with melodies of a poppy nature creating a vast contrast between instrumentation style and lyrical delivery, to be blunt Scandal’s never been about edged compositions under screaming. Songs such as “Orange Juice” and “Koi no geshutaruto hokai” are perfect examples of this very trait amongst many other tracks found on “Standard” where you’re always sure to find in addition, mid tempo melodic rushes as heard in “8 Tsuki” (Hachigatsu) as well as the likes of a power ballad or two such as “Weather Report”, each ever present in their repertoire of songs. And as per usual the band continues to vocalize truly as a group as both solo lines as well as sweetly harmonized ensemble vocal sets (and you gotta love how distinctly different their voices are!) define their very able and diversified members. And still let’s not forget Scandal’s musicianship, which continues to inspire with these girls being as talented and on par with the best of them in the genre and beyond~.

~SCANDAL “SCANDAL IN THE HOUSE” (pv)~

Okay this is sort of like saving the best for last in the sense that this non~album track “SCANDAL IN THE HOUSE” is sooooooo way out there in terms of well….um everything! Sort of like when Aerosmith suddenly decided to rap or like when Anthrax created that twisted rap masterpiece “I’m the Man” waaaaaay back when! Or when that soap opera star decided it was a good idea to sing. Well. Actually. It’s nothing like that last one xD. But in any case you so must click~* play on this one as the girls of SCANDAL show us a side way outside of their normal skin as SCANDAL even goes all idol~ly on us for this instance….yep cosplay….cutesy poses….bunnies….shameless flirting♥….and it’s all done to a song that is so so so much fun!!! And just wait till the song’s bridge, Haruna and the song itself has a surprise for you there! Also you won’t want to miss Maido Mami, I mean it’s Maido Mami, what’s not to love! =)

    Great post (as always)! I wonder what a newcomer to Scandal might think, if the first thing they heard, and saw, was ‘Scandal in the House’! Such a fabulous pv that even has a hint of Hello! Project about the visuals. A great band!

    • It would be soooo not them that they’d be seeing first =P, I imagine a lot of confusion..like what is this wacky song lol! Just seeing them have a chance at acting all idol~ly for this one instance I got such a kick out of this…(^q^)! And then they’ll click on their other songs and be like ehhh? I just hope ~* they love rock \(^o^)/!!Speaking of which this whole album is amazing!!..the girls keep maturing musically and yet they’ve managed to keep their edge from their earlier compositions =).

      Actually if you read through this post, Scandal here isn’t quite Scandal…in fact they’ve gone totally out of their skin for “SCANDAL IN THE HOUSE.” It’s been a couple of days…maybe you’ve watched by now? I’m guessing probably not though.

        • U~n this was so unexpected!!! Just such a humorous tongue~in~cheek surprise to see the girls here acting all idol~ly, something that they’ve probably swore to not do lol! You catch them even doing the idol hand heart gesture..it’s so cute and yet funny as the girls here really are embracing such a humorous side! Rockers try not to be idols and here those lines are wonderfully blurred as only SCANDAL can do….a~h….sorry I’ve already got dibs playing Mario with Mami♥..=P!

            oh but this little changes in some singles i think is good things, only to make some diferent reactions with the fans or try to catch new ones :P, stayed really funny, and i cant stop listem to it hahaha
            at least they dont focus her style in the A-side of the single, but make the b-side a funny song, but if u look close they all have the cute side too…. dont look good in haruka but hahaha, haruka and mami always go have the rocker image for me, rina and tomomi look more to have the kawaii sides 😛

            scandal, never know what can come for the next singles hahaha, always suprises 😛
            so thinking they playing this live, go be really funny
