Review about X-Japan songs
In defense of the piano solo and lyrics (no comparison here) | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Art Of Life performed by X-Japan
Well a lot have already expressed major points about the song but someone forgot about the Piano Solo. If you listen to it the first time it does kind of seem off and would've probably "ruin" your listening experience, but really, the piano solo is actually the title of the song itself "Art of life." It starts of with a nice melody, gets messy as it progresses then becomes mellow with a sweet sad melody. Close your eyes and imagine your life from infancy with that piano solo.
The song's about wanting to commit suicide then a revival of hope at the end that things will get better. I wouldn't say this song's lyrically the best or poetic, but as English isn't Yoshiki's first language, it's amazing he can pull this off. And when the lyrics do make sense, they are indeed poetic to the point you can paint the lyrics in your head (particularly the intro 3 minute portion)
OMG | Reviewer: Chrissy Okabe------ About the song Art Of Life performed by X-Japan
This song is so good, regardless of the lyrics, it's still really good... It can't really be emo because emo didn't exist at this time.
Anyway, thank you Yoshiki for being so talented and having the ability to write such an amazing song. People across the globe are grateful <3

Wake up! | Reviewer: Syd------ About the song Art Of Life performed by X-Japan
I have mixed thoughts about this song. The first 15 minutes and the last 4 have some pretty beautiful lyrics, and the very first piano solo around the 8 minute mark definitely has a baroque style to it which I have never heard in prog rock/metal bands. However I find that the long piano solo was done in a way that ruined the song. Yoshiki is a very talented drummer/pianist, but I think that he should have used his talent to create a solo that was quite Berlioz esque (Symphonie fantastique ) by using the theme and twisting it which would've complemented the depth of the rest of the piece. I found that this piece was half beautiful and half almost childish in the way that the cluster part (in my opinion) was a very non-musical form of expression and it took away from the rest of the piece. I think that if you want to proclaim a song a masterpiece, you need to be able to recognize that a piece that uses cluster and speed as a form of expression and using the same chords in the background for 11 minutes is obviously missing a key component known as creativity to make a real piano solo.
What to say ? Anything .... | Reviewer: djoko saptono------ About the song Say Anything performed by X-Japan
i think it is not too late to SAY ANYTHING ..i found this is my 3rd favo songs of the Xtremely nice JAPAN band. I just fall in love with them after TEARS and ENDLESS RAIN. Even my 6 and 8 years old kids keep playing this very nice song tho still do not know the meaning of this song yet you may SAY ANYTHING !
Struck a chord way off charts | Reviewer: Fighter Won------ About the song I.v. performed by X-Japan
First off, today 17 May 2013 is the first time I have ever listened to this song, in fact it is the first time I have ever known about this song.
As a cancer sufferer, I feel the words piercing my very core. Every chemo needle that pierced my skin was basically an injection of faith that literally played with my mind frequently leading me down the road of questioning life and the none-sense of the fairytale that all my friends and family appear to be living. While I spend days on end being best friends with a bucket, toilet or my pillow, my friends are out there living it large.
The lyrics - I'm calling you dear, I am standing right here... Oh so many times I have stood, or slumped after a dose of chemo and felt myself begging those words out of my deepest and inmost parts of my soul.
Still, I sit here and say "don't let life pass you by"
I love this song, and although I am not into this genre of music, I have made it my personal promise to learn the lyrics and song inside out.
A really amazing song on so many levels.
