It's like a car wreck and I just can't look away.

How can you not 5 this. The idol J-Pop somehow mixes with the various styles of metal present in this album from thrash to deathcore. Mixing J-Pop and metal has been done before, for evidence check your average moody seinen/shounen anime theme tunes, and of course, Maximum the Hormone. but never quite to this extent.

Can we get KILL to review this, or perhaps Hyp would step up to the challenge?

I boned some Jap girls during my year in Kyoto. One or more of them got me into this. It's a great story, I swear

The three-piece dance/metal group is either more or less an acquired taste; some may grow to hate Babymetal, while others shall grow to enjoy the hilarity and musicianship of certain tracks on their first album. I find myself on the latter side, of course... and people, just stop stereotyping Japan as the weirdest country!

The most advanced thing to come out of Japan in a long time. Mediocre metal fronted by cute girls. Metal nerds
are guaranteed to love it.

I put a 5 at this just because all the hate this is getting is wrong, real rate: 3.5

It's pretty gimmicky but it works, as I find it an excellent fusion of j-pop and metal. I can see how people can dislike, it is truly a love-it-or-hate-it album.
|2.0 poor||J. Wagel | July 27th 14|
It's fun at times, and it riffs at times, but it is a novelty and quite cringe-worthy at times. It feels contrived and disjointed in every possible way.

Song 2 and 3 are awesome. Rest is mehh
|3.0 good||bahlof | July 15th 14|
Great for the initial laugh and if you ever need to just smile about something. There's a couple songs that are actually surprisingly decent but the album is obviously just a fun gimmick.
|3.0 good||habster3 | June 23rd 14|
Best album I've ever heard 10/10 absolutely perfect
|4.0 excellent||Alex Newton | June 2nd 14|
This should have been a disaster but Su-metal totally sells it. SEE YOU IN THE MOSH PIT
|4.0 excellent||Thomas Sanborn | May 17th 14|
almost every type of metal is included in this fuckin thing. death metal, thrash, djent, trancecore, metalcore, nu-metal, deathcore, you name it. all complete with often, but not always, kawaii vocals. most of the tracks just sound like anime openings with heavy guitars added in in (mostly) appropriate places. there are also songs put in there for the sake of weirding the listener out (gimme choko, doki doki morning, 4 no uta), but several of the tracks are very well put together, namely megitsune, which is legitimately great. don't let the weirder tracks turn you off, because this is very well put together, surprisingly easy to digest, pop metal. as gimmicky as it is, it works.
|4.0 excellent||Yourcuntingdaughter | May 2nd 14|
I have to agree with the reviewer discovolante. This album is great. A solid 4.o. There are
at least 4 great songs on here (Mitsigune, Gimme chocolate and some others whose names are a
mystery to me because they are in Japanese), but it's all good stuff. The musicianship is
awesome and the overall sound is incredibly refreshing. The architect of this music has
found a space between radio friendly shit-pop and INSANELY AWESOME BRUTAL METAL >:D and
created something unique. Great stuff.

Think In Flames blending in every other type of metal except black metal with j-pop vocals, some electronic elements, and a reggae breakdown. It's definitely a contender for the most entertaining metal album this year.
|4.5 superb||Brent Stephenson | March 7th 14|
This is the greatest thing that's ever been done probably you guys can keep your pleb tier "trv" metal. AOTYAY.
|1.5 very poor||D-D-D-D-Dave | March 6th 14|
The catchiness in the vocal performances are undeniable at times, but I really don't want to dig through all the generic Black Dahlia/Arsis/Arch Enemy-ass riffs to get to them, honestly,

I just cant take this idea seriously...Its a cute novelty that should be heard and appreciated for its risky and often rtimes hilarious presence
