Hip-Hop albums these days are a bit like websites in the late nineties – everyone’s made one but what makes them worthy of attention?

Sometimes an album comes along which makes you stop dead in your tracks. Blending the darkness of metal with the cuteness of kawaii J-Pop, Babymetal have finally delivered their debut full length album, and it’s equal parts brutal and blissful, with a dash of the bizarre.

Positively packed with drops, chops, and stutters, Blue delivers white-boy hip-hop that throws in everything but the kitchen sink.
