Something unique from this album, because there three songs that Mami, Tomomi, and Rina become lead singer. Mami with Hon wo Yomu (Read a Book), Tomomi with Kan Beer (Canned Beer), and Rina with Oyasumi (Good Night). Four songs can be previewed from their SCANDAL4VEVO YouTube channel, two of then are : Image and Depature.
