Previously found on the announcement post, when they announced the setlist and covers I moved it here for better viewing.

Release Date: It releases Tuesday, October 8th in Japan, Friday 11th Worldwide

Prices vary depending on store, so check which is best for you.

For those wondering what you need to buy to get everything, check at the very bottom, you will need to buy from Japan to get all the songs, as well as covers and DVD’s. Here is a quick breakdown, full breakdown below.

In August we got information on Track length and 30 second previews for each song, I will not add them here as many people want to avoid that information, but please check the announcement post.

All pre-orders made before August 18th at 11:59PM (Japan time) include a lenticular post card. THE ONE limited edition is not included. Deal is over

THE ONE version pre-order period was up till July 31st at 12PM, now it’s until stock lasts. It is only available on A!Smart, and only to THE ONE members (guide on how to become one and what the membership includes). It ships on Wednesday, October 9th (or later, depending when you ordered).

On top of all this… as always, many stores in Japan offer their own bonuses. THE ONE version doesn’t come with any. I added the Amazon (no bonus) links because sometimes they are cheaper.

I’d recommend CD Japan or Amazon Japan (great prices + relatively cheap shipping). Amazon USA may be cheaper, just be careful as it doesn’t come with any bonuses, and also the information is wrong on some of them.

*A D Point card is a points card from Docomo, to be used in Japanese stores to earn points. More info.

If you want all new content, you need to buy:

  • Any International version (Elevator Girl [English edition])

If you want all original artwork, you need to buy:

I have the US vinyl releases of their first two albums and I think the sound quality is pretty low. Sounds like an mp3 pressed on vinyl. Streaming off of Amazon prime actually sounds a little better. Do you think it’s worth the extra cost to get the Japanese pressing of Metal Galaxy? Perhaps Babymetal is just not mixed for the wider sonic range of vinyl.

    Well, the benefit would be getting the complete album, obviously. As for sound quality… it’s really impossible to know, sadly. There are some websites that sell FLAC copies, such as Qobuz (International) or Ototoy (Japan).
