Well, the album has some great songs (the death metal in Babymetal Death, Megitsune, power metal in
Benitsuki-Akatsuki, industrial metal in Catch me if you Can, the Meshuggah influences in Akumu no
Rinbukyoku or the great tune that is Headbanger !!), but they also have some not so good songs (their
first single Do Ki Do Ki Morning is annoying at best, Ii ne! is too much techno, Ijime, Dame, Zettai,
is in some part too annoying and bad and please, no more dubstep parts in metal songs -even though the
one used in U.ki.U.ki. Midnight is one of the best I've heard, but still).. I listen mainly to
progressive metal/rock, grunge or post-hardcore, but i'm loving japanese/south korean bands, and
though i don't like the idea of a band put by marketing team, still the band is talented, they make
good music and more people, mainly young people can through this band discover more metal bands, and
that is a great thing

Well, i as a metal fan, i'm listening because of the great metal music in combination with pop melodies.. but the band behind this is fantastic - great solos, great melodies.. it's hard, it's heavy, it's fun.. i mean, i come to metal through nu-metal, so maybe some kids come to metal through this

@misho87: If you think if anyone's going to get into Metal through this IMO you're bonkers. As Calc said, no one listens to this to be heavy metal/strictly for the 'metal part', people listen to this because it's a great gimmick and is really fun.

@Asdfp277: Because Babymetal IS a gimmick. Japanese pop music has a gimmick/trend im their culture called Idols and the gimmick of mashing genres together in a streamlined way and whether it'll work or not because it's 'weird' and cute it will sell. Idols are basically females who are attractive and cute and and music Japanese music companies like to form groups with these said idols, mainly being Pop music. Babymetal are an Idol group with the gimmick of having J-Pop and metal together, corporately planned. Despite it being well done and they've improved massively since their inception, it's a clearly a gimmick.

@Asdfp277: I never said people listen strictly because of the gimmick, I mean that it's that said gimmick which has grabed so many people's attention. If the music was shit than no one would like it despite said gimmick. It's fun, overblown yet well done material (for the most part) that makes this enjoyable.
