Christ on a bike... | Reviewer: Louise | 6/8/09
What can I say, X Japan have outdone themselves here. It's amazing how well this song was when performed live considering its length- none of the band members slipped for even a second! Very creative song as well, what with the piano interlude including thumping the keys. It's an unusual idea, but it worked really well.
I can't say I'm surprised they did this and pulled it off, though. They have Yoshiki on board, and he's one of the most dedicated people I've heard of. He seems to put 110% of what he's got into everything he does.
Toshi's English is fine. OK, so it's not perfect, but English isn't easy to pronounce for most Japanese, and Toshi does really well compared to most other Jrock singers.
music | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/3/09
The music absolutely superb and its just beautiful. The only fault i can find in this song is that the singer cant sing in English . But playing for 30 mins so well .Hats off to this band . Superb music
Loss for Wirds -_- Read the lyrics, speaks for itself | Reviewer: Ryan | 12/30/08
From Yoshiki's heart pounding drums rolling in, to the haunting symphonic melodies, to the amazingly talented Hide(deceased) shreading for 10 minutes long, and the beutiful voice of Yoshiki strainning his vocal chords to make every note hit pure perfection. Everytime I listen to this song I say to myself "this is the best 30 minutes of my life" Anything written by Yoshiki is an instant masterpiece. Now that Hide is gone, this song brings tears to all of our eyes. X has never sold out, gone mainstream, they've stayed true to their fans. They are reuniting for a world tour, and Toshi, Heath, Pata, Yoshiki, and hide wherever you are, will all be with us for one last time. I am this passionate about a band that sings in a language I can't even understand. This is a once in a lifetine song, and a family that we shall cherish for the rest of you lives. This is a work of oure magnificent art. XD (THAT WAS DEEP)
The Ultimatum | Reviewer: ZulFarhan | 9/26/08
I'd rate this song to be the most genuine, legit, expressive and breathtaking!!! Watch the video and you will know what i mean :)
If you have observed/heard clearly, Yoshiki on drums is totally amazing. He plays with passion (sometimes sings along and smiles!) and he's stamina is absolutely strong - playing Art Of Life for 10mins+(Part 1) and about 6 mins for part 2. Yoshiki is truely another excellent composer.. Just listen to this song.. He's drum parts is so expressive and every members' parts fits into the song well such that the song flows beautifully.
X Japan truly etched their mark in my brain. ART OF LIFE is simply the best song ever!
Undescribable talent expressed through breath taking music and heart felt lyrics | Reviewer: AsianBlood | 9/19/08
Where to begin when it comes to X japan. Similarly to ZerOTime, i begun listening to x japan when i was in college around 2004 and was first introduced to X japan through falling in love with a JRock band known as Dir en Grey. My friend was astonished that i knew nothing first about x japan so i began collecting their albums. I thank my friend to this day for helping find one of the rare jems within music. Within the UK lies many manufactured bands singing lyrics with no meaning.... what has music become? X japan performed with heart and all their songs from weekend to the ultimate art of life is nothing below outstanding, in all truth there is no word to describe who immaculately perfect they are in my opinion. their songs reflect true emotion and feelings felt by ever human being. Why X japan were never acknowledged within the West around their existing baffles me beyond belief. Amoungst my Fav bands of all time X japan is at the top along side Queen and Nightwish.
^_^ | Reviewer: ZerOTimE | 8/8/08
This song makes me so happy ^__^ i just wish i heard of X-Japan earlier...i have their whole discography though and its simply amazing...i started listening to them awhile ago like..in 2005 when i first heard Dir en grey cause someone on limewire but taht Blue Blood was a dir en grey song...but it turned out to be X-Japan..and then i fell in love with them! hehe i want to see them live..but i dont know if they are good anymore...i know one of their members died and had to be replaced and ive only heard their new song I.V...i just hope they have not changed from like what this song is ^_^
Pure poetry!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/26/08
This isn't just lyrics or music. This is pure poetry. The lyrics could be published as a poem and most people would never imagine that this was a "rock & roll" song. As for Yoshiki's musical composition, the man is practically a genius, enough said!!!
Masterpiece | Reviewer: Schmakkus | 2/19/08
It's truly a masterpiece.
I get goosebumps while listening. Couple of days ago, I was upset, because I lost this song and found it today.
The singing and the music. Just the instrumentals shows every single aspect of life. Sometimes Harmonic and sometimes not.
The Must Listen To Song! | Reviewer: Luis Fer | 1/29/08
When a song takes you to another place far from only music, is a real masterpiece; this is how I felt the first time I listened to this amazing song.It is all about the sound, lyrics, interpretation, the feeling and conviction with wich all the guys play; with songs like this (rare ones huh?) you just can say "thanks" for a moment of happines, or for a moment to get out of your sadness, for being able to say sorry or to give a hand... Don't know what more to say; thanks X Japan for a beautiful masterpiece. "I just want to let my emotions get out..."

to anonymous | Reviewer: Tomoe | 10/9/07
You don't understand him because he has japanese accent obviously when we speak another language we can't say it the way it should be. I have this example because my original language is Spanish.(so sorry for my bad english ^^)
It's an excellent song,specially in the guitar solo by Hideto. I like it a lot
No words can express | Reviewer: X rocks | 10/5/07
I can't even think of how to describe this song.
I would say amazing, beautiful, gorgeous but these words doesn't even seem to come close to describe its great significance.
And to anonymous: "No"
if you didn't get the lyrics, it just shows how completely ignorant you are.
But i guess someone already said that. ^^'
art of life | Reviewer: ianime | 10/6/07
this song is a definite art.you could just feel the overflowing emotion yoshiki has when he does piano and drums.i dont know if other member feel the same as yoshiki(coz hes the composer).to sum it all,this song is emotionally done,full of compation,rage,and fits every human living.
X JAPAN - ART OF LIFE | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/25/07
To the Anonymous reviewer. Shut ur fucking mouth. You're just showing ur ignorance by saying "no one can argue that everyone, every single member in dream theater is 10X more talanted, first off the singer for "X-Japan" is absolutely horrible, he can barley speak english, his singing is illegible, and the lyrics make absolutely no sense sometimes and they go ON AND ON"
work on your spelling and grammar before posting shit. talanted? first off the singer? barley speak english? I didn't know barley could actually speak. n since when is illegible used to describe a person's singing? the lyrics make far more sense than your childish shallow remarks. I'm my laughing my ass off.
ART OF LIFE is definitely one of the greatest songs of all time. X JAPAN indeed is a legend.
Art of Life | Reviewer: Jon | 9/24/07
how could you even begin to imagine composing work like this, its incredible. the diversity shown by all members is amazing, from the amount of energy and emotion in Yoshiki's piano playing, let alone drumming, to hide's solo's and Toshi's vocals. I cant fault this not because i dont want to, but because i wouldnt know how, its so complex and well composed theres nothing out there to compare it to. its one of a kind and i find it hard to believe something like this could be done again by any band, Japanese or any other nationality.
