_American Hit Network The existence of the Osaka Popstar debut is further proof that God loves The Ramones.

_AMP (American Music Press-monthly) Thirty years of punk rock history layered with Japanese anime frosted with the mainstreaming of outsider music = the head-banging genius of Osaka Popstar.
