So, this song is my favorite of all time. It's not because it's ridiculously long or anything, it's just damn perfect IMO. The band brings huge hype and emotion into their songs and this is the ultimate culmination of their talents. Also, the leader of the band is both the drummer and the pianist and goes crazy on both. I don't think any other song can make me both tear up and want to jump around the room/headbang in the same time frame. I don't cry every time, though
Anyway, I just wanted to make this topic to let those who don't know about this amazing song, well, know about it. Does anyone else really like this song or others from X Japan? I know that at 29 minutes long (34 for the live version) it could be a bit intimidating, but it's well worth it and actually manages to keep the listener interested for the whole time. Some people feel that the 8-minute piano solo is 'what ruins the song" but for others like me it's incredible and the song would not be the same masterpiece without it. Please, have a listen and enjoy!
