Highlight Lyric: “A sou yo itsu demo onna wa joyuu yo/ Kitsune janai kitsune janai/ Otome na megitsune/ A yamato nadeshiku onna wa kawaru no/ Kao de waratte kokoro de naite/ ‘sou yo ne’tte namida wa misenai no/ Kitsune kitsune/ Watashi wa megitsune / Onna wa joyuu yo” from Megitsune

Highlight Review: “Sprinkling a sugary coating of teen-idol pop on to the remorseless clamour of death metal sounds like a musical fusion best confined to the imagination of a record industry executive. But Babymetal, a trio of Japanese teenage girls, have paired rah-rah skirts and hair ribbons with infernal metallic riffs to produce what could be the most unlikely music phenomenon of the year.” – read more at The Guardian
