The Top Ten Best Japanese Rock Albums

1 Dir en grey - UROBOROS

I would be forever thankful for this album. Dir en grey did the great job, they show to us they're musicians like nobody else could be. So many great pieces. Every song on this album is living emotion which is growing in your heart like flower and dying really slow and painfully. Pure art.

Uroboros is the deepest album I've ever listened to. I love what Dir en grey do, and every time they do something better and better.

Very Deep and Heavy with awesome melodic elements. Love it! - tenthsage

Sa Bir, Vinushka, Red Soil... UROBOROS is the best album*) - Saku

2 X Japan - Dahlia

This is not just the best Japanese rock album but one of the best albums ever created. Each song is gold and is preformed brilliantly. If you like music you owe it to yourself to listen to it.

3 Janne Da Arc - ANOTHER STORY

Amazing album, it contains all sub genres you'd like to hear in J-rock! - Nitta

4 Dir en Grey - Vulgar
5 hide - Ja, Zoo
6 L'Arc~en~Ciel - KISS

this is my favorite album, you should listen this one!
i really suggest to all of japanese rock fans

the best album is this not the dir en grey album, this is my list not yours - ronluna

get out of this list this is the best not that dir en grey album - ronluna

7 Luna Sea - Mother

Possibly the best name for this album... This album was the "mother" to many Japanese rock artist that came after Luna sea

8 Penicillin - Blue Heaven
9 Kagerou - Shinjuku
10 the Gazette - NIL

Absolutely brilliant, from the first note to the last. They always manage to change their style so effortly. My favourite Japanese Rock Album by far.

Brilliant. the gazette has once again proved us that all their albums are genius. nice job guys!

It's better than the Dir en Grey rubbish by far. This is real music.

The Contenders

11 Dir En Grey - Macabre
12 D'espairsRay - Coll:set
13 the GazettE - DIM

I love the dark passion in this album..


Actually, Beautiful deformity must be the 1st

14 B'z - LOOSE
15 BUCK-TICK - Memento Mori

This album is gorgeous. It's such an excellent show of what they can do. One of my top favorite Buck-Tick songs is Coyote which is on Memento Mori. Memento Mori and Tenshi no Revolver are tied for me, two perfect albums to showcase their brilliant work. It's albums like these that make me excited for more. I think all Buck-Tick fans will agree that these are two must-haves!

16 Lynch - Shadows

One of the greatest Japanese albums out there! - PlagueDoctor

17 Maximum the Hormone - Bu Ikikaesu

The album that defines MTH completely and changed hard rock history and is now one of the greatest Japanese bands. They even headline concerts that the GAZETTE is in! This is the only Japanese album to mix hardcore, punk, metal, alternative rock and pop...

(This album also made Death Note 10x more epic... )

Every track on this song is brilliant and flowing with the sound made only by MTH. Every last cord is amazing. MTH does what little bands can do and this album shows it best, they can combine several styles perfectly into one song and actually make it flow. Buikikaesu has no rival.

18 BUCK-TICK - Tenshi no Revolver

one of the coolest albums of buck-tick - ronluna

19 L'Arc~en~Ciel - REAL

23 Malice Mizer - Merveilles
24 Scandal - Queens Are Trumps (Kirifuda Wa Queen)

The latest album from #1 All-girl Rock Band! They had it all---Talent, Looks, Attitude---and they're still improving! And the combination of Haru's, Tomo's and Mami's voices is just so amazing!
