Guest review by

As anyone who saw Sam Dunn's documentary "Global Metal" may know, X Japan, or X as they were then called, were treated as pariahs by the Japanese music establishment when they first emerged in the mid-1980s. Rumour has it some Tokyo bars even hung signs on their doors saying "No Yoshiki". This outsider status wasn't entirely unearned; they openly courted controversy with the sleeve of debut single I'll Kill You, which featured the faces of corpses photographed during the Vietnam War.

Rating: 6 I confess i was never a big fan of Vanishing Vision. Its the only X Japan cd that i don´t appreciate that much... From this album forward, they´ve only released magnificent albums.
