Review by David Cirone
If you’ve kept up with BABYMETAL’s single releases in the 3-year-gap since 2016’s METAL RESISTANCE, you’ve already heard most the best parts of METAL GALAXY. Built-to-last rockers like “Distortion” and “Elevator Girl” keep their replay value (even though there’s a “just why?” assist on “Distortion” by Arch Enemy’s Aliss White-Gluz). “Starlight” is as soaring as it was a year ago when it debuted alongside the band’s graphic novel Apocrypha. “Kagerou” and “Shine” stand out as the solid new additions to the BABYMETAL playlist.
