Yeah, I saw it opening day. It was great to hear it over the theaters sound system. Great song, but I was disappointed by the lack of a real guitar solo. I figured that's where they would have thrown in one of hide's old recordings.
Yoshiki said during the pv shooting that they would preform in Tokyo next spring. I would assume at Tokyo Dome. No word on when the single will be released. Rumor has it that it will contain three tracks, including "Without You" and a secret song.

I was really disappointed with the new remastered versions of BLUE BLOOD and Jealousy. They really don't sound much better than the originals. I had such high hopes for those... I'll upload them if anyone wants, but don't expect anything amazing.

hey brad, have been reading alot of your post about Jrock stuff and learning alot of different bands, as i'm still a new comer to this type of music    :pimp:

Pls up for a fellow J-rock/X 'new' fan!!   :D

** a friend sent me the old version, but somehow the mix is very muddy and there's couple of skips here and there, esp. between the first instrumental track into 'blue blood"..

Just checked out a rip of it at last...damn I had no idea it would be so soon. First impressions are pretty good but yeah I'm hoping there's a full version with a guitar solo.

Here is the full version of I.V. that was ripped from the SAW4 DVD. Still not positive if this is the final version that will be released as a single, I've heard rumors that the unedited version is a lot longer.

ENJOY \m/

credit to Menacia over at Tonberry forums. His rip also included about a minute of the song played after I.V., so I edited that out, so it stops right when the piano stops.

X Japan press conference to be held on the 20th. They will be playing Tokyo Dome at the end of March. A hide memorial concert, European tour and new album will follow.
Please, please, please... Come to America! Shit, Yoshiki's such a Hollywood whore nowadays that they should be playing out there first.

hhahahaa  :w00t:!

true, true, consider how much press he did in "american english" compare to say, french or german  8)

now a REAL surprise is if he did a tour BESIDES sanfran/west coast; with the coverage of the internet, heck, he could prb tour mid-states and still get a full house   :lol:

There's a bunch of torrents up over at jpopsuki and most of the show is up on youtube. I only downloaded X's and Luna Sea's sets, but they were awesome. Best part was the muteki band at the end of X's set.
For the spread beaver thing, all the band members played live and they played hide's vocals over the speakers.

Weird I just saw X-Japan is going to have a concert in Paris next month.
"Lucky" french having such a strong connection to Japan.

Anyway I thought about going there but some online shop lists tickets for 214$ D:
It's probably worth it for fans but I'm not fan enough to spend that much... especially not since I would also have to pay for a flight/train ticket as well  :bleed eyes:
Hopefully they'll have success in Europe though
ChrNo, I hope you are happy
