The thing I loved about Baroness (or at least their first two records) was they were a modern metal band but with all the classic metal trimmings: singing over Randy Blythe vocals, guitar solos etc. I didn't really like alot of the soft flowery moments on Blue Record but there were just enough so the whole thing tipped over. From what I gather the album is 3/4 that and 1/4 of actual metal (or at least Red Album style metal).
I listened to three Babymetal tracks...sounds like Chun Li getting butt-fucked by Andrew W.K. That's not something I ever wanted to hear.
