Remember SAVIA? God dammit you do. Best thing I’ve has released in years, the crowning achievement of Mami Kawada’s career, and despite its awesomeness its title was taken from a plant genus with a stupid name. Well, I’ve is apparently going for consistency here, because according to Amazon Japan, MELL’s debut album is getting a name just as stupid. (Thanks to Fred Itachi and Same for finding this out before my lazy ass did!)
MELLSCOPE, they say they’re calling it. MELL plus SCOPE. While it could be worse (no Ha!!!ppiness-esque inappropriate punctuation, for one), one really has to wonder what precisely I’ve was thinking when they gave the album such a cheesy fucking title. Granted, the title of an album really doesn’t matter that much in the grand scheme of things, but it still can’t help when the name of a particular CD brings to mind images of MELL-sponsored mouthwash.
And if the current scheduled release date is kept to, MELLSCOPE will be out on August 8th of this year.
