If we have SA-CD, why not add HQCD, SHM-CD and Blu-spec CD to the media format list?

For instance, the media format of this album is not a conventional CD - it is an HQCD.

I know they are all CD (compact disks), but even a SA-CD is a compact disk... I don't know if that matters.

I've already asked for that, and the answer was no

Hm.

SA-CD was mostly added due to the existence of separate commercial releases for CD and SA-CD versions of a particular album -- but if we're going extend this further it may be better to create a sub-format field instead. Another new field worth considering would be the size of the media, since currently we have no way to distinguish between regular CDs and mini-CDs, for instance.

I'll create a new thread in the submission guidelines forum eventually to discuss this.

This press released in 1992 isn't HQCD

HQCD is the re-print released in 2010 (COCX-36146)

Since it is just manufactured with a better material and runs in any CD-Player like a standard CD, i don't think a good idea creating a new field for it

Alternative Technologies for the compact disc will always exists, and for some of them, the modification made is not really a big impact for considering them something special than a standard CD, since the engine is still the same and usually only the increasing of the data size is the main point.

On reading "Meatball Head," I was going to set this as a localized tracklist, but would a localization be appropriate? I mean, did the dub(s) use the original music?

Also, can someone confirm whether or not these tracklists are too literal?

I want to change The Starry Sky is Mysterious to The Mysterious Starlit Sky & A Scatterbrain is Born to Scatterbrained by Nature (as in born a scatterbrain).

I used "meatball head" because, iirc, it's used in the localization version
just for convenience to be honest

I changed scatterbrain, but I disagree for mysterious, a translated track must be close to original, your translation sounds like the original was "fushigina hoshizora" (that is not the case)
