X (later changed to X JAPAN in 1992 to avoid confusion with the American punk band X) is arguably one of the most influential bands in the history of the Japanese music scene. Formed by childhood friends YOSHIKI and Toshi in 1982 at Chiba, Japan, X was originally founded to play high energy rock music. Besides being one of the first Japanese acts to achieve mainstream success while on an independent label, the group is widely credited for pioneering the visual kei movement.

The band consisted of Toshi (vocals), YOSHIKI(drums, piano, composer, lyricist), hide (guitar), Pata (guitar), and Heath (bass), and Taiji (bassist) until 1997 when they disbanded.

Once Yoshiki and Toshi recruited bassist Taiji and guitarists hide and Pata, the band began moving on the indie circuit. They garnished abundant support and fans across Japan with their outrageous dress style. They used long, dyed hair and

I have the feeling I've grown out of this release a bit since my younger days where I adored it greatly. Contrary to some opinions, I don't ever feel this 29 minute single track album/EP is overlong, even with that daunting 8 minute piano solo in the middle.

This was probably one of the first albums that kick started my infatuation with the epic length track, and by comparison with other epics, it's pretty short. Still, 29 minutes for most people is a very long track. The style of this album is power metal with a great emphasis on melodic elements. Though power metal is not my forte, I rather enjoyed the long form style which X Japan employed in this album. It has a cohesive, flowing nature and never feels like a bunch of unrelated songs slammed together.

The guitar playing is technical, but doesn't feel showy beyond reflecting the theme of the music, which is alienation and existential crisis; probably why the piano solo seems so fitting to the piece - it works with two pianos that form an opposition, playing off each other until the structure begins to crumble into dissonant noisy clangs. A brief respite through an ambient interlude leads us back to the power metal finale.

The band has the good sense to keep the epic flowing and always progressive, which ensures it doesn't stay static, even with the piano, it never outstays its welcome. Of course, it's a divisive album, and many would say overlong, but for me, despite somewhat growing out of it, is still a great journey that I'd recommend any power metal fan to take.

X Japan enjoyed a breakthrough success after releasing the critically acclaimed album, "Blue Blood" in 1989 and maintained their peak performance through their third album, "Jealousy", in 1991. X Japan was considered a pioneer in visual kei that's inspired many newer bands such as Glay, Luna Sea, and L'arc~en~ciel, a unique appearances that combined the elements from glam, goth, punk, and usually involving androgynous clothing style as well. "Jealousy" displayed a very diverse musical style of X Japan, ranging from power metal, melodic heavy metal, hard rock, thrash, and ballads.

"Silent Jealousy", which is one of their most popular track and also a concert-regular, is a brilliant power metal piece showing Yoshiki’s brutal side behind the drumkit while still emphasizes the song on the melodic harmonies of guitars and vocal. "Miscast" and "Desperate Angel" slower the tempo and both are great tracks with the latter featured a thrilling instrumental duel on the interlude part. "Voiceless Screaming" is a breezy acoustical ballad with Toshi's soothing voice brought to the front. Some furious thrashy riffs were unleashed on "Stab Me In The Back" while the instrumental experimentation of "Love Replica" is sadly my least fave track. Came on next, "Joker", a catchy hard rock which is a track that was loved by many fans. "Say Anything" is an epic AOR-ballad, a timeless classic with an anguish lyric, listen to Hide's pulse pounding guitar solo, you can feel the sorrow carved inside the agonizing notes, just beautiful.

X Japan is a very interesting band. All of the members are extremely-talented and skillful musicians. The mastermind, Yoshiki, for example, is a prominent pianist, songwriter, producer, and drummer at the same time. This is the last album to feature bassist Taiji Sawada and also one of the greatest legacies left by the late Hide who committed suicide in 1998. My only complaint on this album is if you count out three instrumental tracks here, you only get 7 tracks, and that's pretty short for a full-length album, otherwise this deserved a solid nine, and together with "Blue Blood", are my all-time favorite X Japan releases.

Bottomline : The Visual Shock still riding high!
