This is probably my favourite X Japan album next to Art of Life. Songs like "X" and "Kurenai" are some of the best metal songs I have heard in a long time. These guys are metal legends, up there with Maiden and Priest.



Visual Kei is very odd for Westerners, but if you forget about the looks you can hear some truly incredible music. Songs like Endless Rain and Rose of Pain left me speechless the first time I heard them. Great stuff.

Awesome album. A pretty good review too, or at least a lot better than I could ever do.

This album is so fucking chessy yet so fucking metal m/.



Despite this album's cheesiness, Toshi sells every fucking word like the very best.

Taiji was such an amazing bassist and that shows the most on this album. How he manages to make all his fills and flourishes flow so well with the guitars and yet still follow drum beats without sticking to root notes is really amazing.

Rose of Pain is such a fantastic track. One of their best.

A proto-Art of Life basically, awesome. Orgasm is my favorite here.

I would have loved to hear a version with higher production quality and better pronunciation on Toshi's part. Both fit songs like Blue Blood or Week End, but a song as opulent as Rose of Pain needs the same kind of treatment as Art of Life got imo.

I think the version I got is the original and it's kinda muddy in places and quite noisy overall - I'm not complaining though, like I said it fits the music on the whole, just not that particular song. Would really be interested in what a (well done) remastered version sounds like for sure.
