Best Japanese Rock Albums

Best of all Japanese rock videos, all kinds of rock in Japan.
The Top Ten
1 Dir en grey - UROBOROS Dir en grey - UROBOROS Product Image

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.

Hah! Without a doubt! DEG owns has the best album and this list. There is so many different types of hard rock in this album.

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

2 X Japan - Dahlia X Japan - Dahlia Product Image

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 Dir en Grey - Vulgar Dir en Grey - Vulgar Product Image

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

The Contenders
11 the Gazette - NIL the Gazette - NIL Product Image

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.

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

13 the GazettE - DIM the GazettE - DIM Product Image

I love the dark passion in this album..


14 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!

15 Lynch - Shadows

One of the greatest Japanese albums out there!

16 B'z - LOOSE B'z - LOOSE Product Image
17 Maximum the Hormone - Bu Ikikaesu Maximum the Hormone - Bu Ikikaesu Product Image

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.

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... )

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!
