Lol the crowd in that video is hilarious, none of then look like the metal type, but they go fucking crazy when they play Orgasm.



Great video

I love them studio and live, but Art of Life is pretty much objectively better live.

Of course, pretty regularly even, although I listen to them more song-oriented than whole albums.

Sweet. Yea I thought there was a bunch of filler on blue blood & jealousy but this one is pretty nice start to finish
Which songs are your favs?

Hm, let me see ...



Alive, Kurenai, Endless Rain, Rose of Pain, Silent Jealousy, Say Anything, Art of Life (of course), Dahlia, Rusty Nail ... I think those are my absolute top songs, chronologically because I couldn't rank them. Just Art of Life on the top and probably Rusty Nail second. After that, I have no idea. It's probably apparent that I'm mostly into their symphonic metal style, even though I love their other stuff as well (X, Vanishing Love, etc.). The only stuff I'm not really into is their more glammy style, like Joker and Celebration (so basically hide's songs, but I love Scars).

Why would anyone not? Iconic stuff. As for their Glam stuff I'll defend it since Desperate Angel is in my top 5 X Japan songs.

I like Desperate Angel. I see why it's a controversial song of sorts, but Toshi is amazing in it and it's super catchy. Certainly my favorite glam style song they did.

Their best Glam song easily yeah, to me everything about it is gold. The solo, the awesome break after it, Toshi's killer vocal parts in the verses...love it. I really like Joker and Easy Fight Rambling but I don't care for Celebration.

Joker admittedly has some really good riffs. Celebration is probably my least favorite of that category, too. It's also a strange moment when it ends on such a goofy note and Rose of Pain starts with that dark organ.

Ahhhhh, I love Celebration lol, that's one of my favourite X songs, let alone their glammy stuff. If we're talking hide stuff, his best song with these guys is Sadistic Desire
