I discovered this group by accident on youtube. Look up Band Maid Thrill and watch the video. I was amazed by the sound; the bass solo by Misa and the lead guitar solo by Kaname are fantastic. The drumming is amazing by Akane-- trust me she drums like a mad woman. Saiki's singing is strong and amazing. Miku holds her own as well. Simply put this album rocks all the way through with strong songs. My personal faves are Thrill, Freezer, Real Existence, Don't Let me Down and Shake That. But all of the songs on this album are great. I Like the dvd too, it works in any player so do not worry about region encoding. It has two great videos: Real Existence and Don't Let Me Down. Overall this set was well worth the price and I would definitely love to see these young and vibrant rockers in concert. 5/5.

Unmissable J-rock mini-album! All tracks are well worth the money. I especially love "Arcadia Girl" which is very surprising at the first time. Those debuting girls are already great profesionals and their music is original, varied and well mastered. Furthermore, the two discs come in a lovely (but a bit simple) double cardboard sleeve which opens like a folder which make it a beautiful object. Definitly THE release you have to buy for a rocking Christmas!
More great music from a great bunch of rocking ladies. I really would like to see them in a concert DVD. They are very good and the music is moving and keeps a fast pace. Excellent guitar work by the young lady. The drummer is fantastic and the whole group gives you the most they can offer. You wont be let down by buying this great album. Hope to hear much more from them as time goes on. Love this group and album. 10 stars for them---wish these ladies much success as they rock on.
