Like a lot of people, I first heard Maximum the Hormone by watching the anime Death Note. Luckily, both "What's Up, People?!" and "Zetsubou Billy" are a good introduction to the album, and if you love those songs, this album will appeal to you in many ways. Having been described as "the Japanese System of a Down", Maximum the Hormone know how to write songs that are just pretty weird! For example, track 11 is named "Chu Chu Lovely Muni Muni Mura Mura Purin Purin Boron Nururu Rero Rero." That they sing in Japanese does not matter as long as you can appreciate the singing melodies and the musician qualities of the band. I highly recommend this CD to all fans of j-rock, and rock in general.
