Razzle Dazzle is the 17th album by Japanese rock band Buck-Tick, released on October 13, 2010.[1] Graphic artist Aquirax Uno provided the illustrations for the album's cover.[2] The limited edition came with a DVD of music videos and an interview. It reached number six on both the Oricon chart and Billboard Japan.[3][4]

"Dokudanjō Beauty" was used as the second ending theme song to the Japanese version of Battlestar Galactica. This album version features Lucy, vocalist of the all-female rock band LAZYgunsBRISKY, singing the chorus.[5] The single version of "Kuchizuke" was used as the opening theme for the Shiki anime, which began airing on July 8, 2010. The anime also used "Gekka Reijin", as its second ending song.
