Classic Rock MagazineMar 22, 2023This is the maturing of cute metal, and it's still nuts. [Apr 2023, p.76]
Mar 22, 2023It’s a coming-of-age bruiser of a record that transcends their brutal blend of J-pop and metalcore to more daring soundscapes.
Mar 22, 2023It’s hard not to have fun when every track here feels suitably like its own adventure, and impressively still, BABYMETAL sound like they’ve been steering the ship through these parallel universes not for the first time, but for years.
Mar 27, 2023The Other One takes its metal/pop influences and fuses them into a seamless sound that trades Kawaii for seriousness and atmosphere. While it might be initially disappointing to lose a decade of Babymetal influences, it was probably time and the more mature and serious Babymetal sound is still as captivating as always.
Mar 22, 2023The electronic beat of ‘METALIZM’, with its winding guitars and chanting vocals echoing their melody verbatim, comes over a little too recent-era Muse than anyone needs. But what, on the surface, is mostly a fun, noisy collection does also offer an infinite rabbit hole to dive down.
Mar 31, 2023Other One feels like it was pulled through a wormhole from a universe where a committee writes Babymetal's metallic pop emissions, intent on flowing with the current instead of against it.

But I'm pleased to see BABYMETAL are as artistically creative (and divisive!) as ever. Some of the heaviest music in the genre, mixed with dubstep, EDM, and even some Sax! Arguably their best album to date.… Expand
