I've got a fairly good collection of music in Digital, CD, Vinyl and Tape formats. I have to agree that the physical media, particularly the analog ones, have a characteristic "feel" to the sound that is all their own.

Here's hoping that SCANDAL has a great time on their tour and they get a chance to make new fans and friends.

I got to see them in Tokyo last month and they were amazing. Nothing is better than high energy pop rock live. Even got that FMA:B ending on vinyl which is pretty awesome. I won't be able to make any of their US dates but at the Tokyo show they had a 15 minute break between sets where they just talked and read fan mail which went over very well, I'm kind of curious how that will play in the states if they do that at all.

Looking forward to seeing them play at ACen. Well done with this interview as it went a lot more into depth than I expected it to.

I understand that time has changed and they can't wear school uniforms like they did 5 or 6 years ago, but their stylist could've come up with something better than generic "hipster girl" image. Girls are beautiful though. Not sure if I ever heard anything besides Shoujo S, not my cup of tea, but good luck to them.

i've been at their concert last week in Essen, Germany
And let me tell you this:
It was mindblowing great.
Without a doubt one of the best concerts i've seen (perhaps even the best).
The whole crowd went nuts and the girls seemed to have so much fun. Damn i want to see them live again Very Happy

I can't wait to see them in Chicago! I wish they had come to NY but I have to see them live. It is worth the $500.00 + for the flight hotel & car rental just to see them. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I hope I get to see them at ACEN! I believe that seats are on a first-come, first-served basis if you weren't lucky enough to buy tickets in advance. I wonder how early people are going to line up outside the venue.

On a side note... great interview! It's surprising to me that Japan's CD sales are declining. From what I've seen from import sites, Japanese releases almost always have some awesome first print bonuses or special edition releases.

Posted here before:

For first time, digital music matches physical sales

  • The drops contributed to the overall pictures for the global music industry—revenue of $14.97 billion in 2014, down a modest 0.4% from a year earlier.

    Japan, whose slowdown in music sales has been a drag in recent years on the global industry, saw an increase in digital revenue for the first time in five years as streaming services took hold.

    CDs are still far more popular than digital music in Japan, which nonetheless saw revenue decline by 5.5% in 2014, although it was an improvement from a 16.7% tumble the year before.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the show at ACEN is Friday the 15th not the 16th.

I saw them in Germany. No pause with reading session. But a great performance and atmosphere. I had a blast!
