Information

Scratch is the third studio album released by Kimura Kaela. Unlike Kimura's previous album this album features a wide range of producers with a different one on each song (except "Ground Control" and "sweetie" both produced by Jez Ashurst of the British indie rock band Farrhah). The songs "Ground Control" and "L.drunk" were used as radio singles to promote the album. The song "L.drunk" is also Kimura's first song with long-time composer AxSxE. The record also sees compositions from Japanese rock royalty like Kameda Seiji, BEAT CRUSADERS, Dr.StrangeLove, indie rock darlings Tsutaya Koichi, Iwata Atchu, and foreigners like Jez Ashurst and Linus Of Hollywood.

The first press edition of the record comes with a DVD containing Kimura's most recent music videos and live footage from her recent tours, and a slipcase.

Oricon Chart Positions

The album reached #1 on the weekly Oricon chart (her first album to do so), and stayed on the charts for a total of 15 weeks[2] This is Kimura's best selling studio album. In all it sold a total of 359,590 copies, making it Oricon's #28 album of 2007. The album also charted for two weeks on the World Chart (#3 and #22, respectively).
