I've also downloaded all their singles. I downloaded their first single just because of their name as a girl-group called Perfume was just something I wanted to hear. I loved them immediately!

My favorite song Vitamin Drop live!

I heard about them a few years ago. Hated their sound until I heard Linear Motor Girl which was pretty good. But Computer city and Electro World was even better though. So yeah I guess I like them now.
Interesting that their album made it into the top 20 (even if its only for a day)because none of their singes were even made it to the top 40.

Ooohh... Perfume's new songs are so good - Perfect Star Perfect Style :yay:
I wonder why they left 4 really good songs out of album from Monochrome Effect and sweet donuts singles-especially Oishii Recipe.
