    ------ About the song Tears performed by X-Japan

ah such a beautiful song...... half of it maybe in Japanese and I can barely understand Japanese but love hath no bounds nor boundaries. One just have to close ones eyes and listened with ones heart and one would understand that it speaks of the beauty of LOVE. Not just the longing and the pain that it can bring but also the hope and happiness that comes with it. Thanks to this song that I only heard tonight for the first time it made my beatless heart to flutter and start beating again..... dry your tears and don't give up on love.... no matter how painful it is Love is still beautiful.... tears and pain are the price that one must pay sometimes.... but its worth it.....I still believe in love because of this song that dried my tears. I now have the strength to face tomorrow with a smile and maybe just maybe start loving again ....

    ------ About the song Longing performed by X-Japan

X-Japan' melody is beyond imaginary. Although we're not japanese and sometimes lyric only carry a part of what the composer wanna say but the unique melody says it all... After all, the melody will last forever.

    ------ 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.

Infancy->teenage years->adulthood->death

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)

    ------ 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

    ------ 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.
