We have so many habitual complainers among us, I thought I would collect things we can complain about with regards to X Japan, and mainly Yoshiki. :D Feel free to choose your favourite complaints to use once the album drops, or write your own complaint below. You can never complain enough when it comes to X Japan!

1. The new album is late again (duh!)
2. The new album dropped but why now? Shoulda dropped yeeears ago.
3. It has too many songs. (15 songs? Who listens to so much nowadays?)
4. It doesn't have enough songs. (JUST 9?! Do you call that an album?!)
5. It has too many new songs.
6. It has not enough new songs. It's all just old shit in new coating.
7. It's too popish, this is not metal!
8. Too much metal, where's the piano?
9. The cover art sucks because... [select your optional reason]
    a. it only has Yoshiki on it.
    b. that font is ridiculous. Are these stuck in the 90s?
    c. I've seen this before somewhere.
    d. there's no cover art! This is just garbage.
10. There is no booklet included.
11. There is a booklet but it is Japanese only.
12. Why have English songs only? You cannot conquer the US market anyways now.
13. Why doesn't it have English songs only? You cannot conquer the foreign market with Japanese blabbering.
14. It's not on iTunes (laaaaame).
15. It's on iTunes (laaaaame).
16. The title is ridiculous.
17. There is no title. What the fuck?
18. Too many Yoshiki compositions.
19. Not enough Sugizo compositions.
20. Not enough Pata.
21. Not enough Heath... No, wait, who cares about Heath?
22. Too much midi drums.
23. Yoshiki is crazy to drum in this health condition, why didn't he use midi instead?!
24. La Venus is not on it?!
25. La Venus is on it?!
26. Too many collaborations, it doesn't give them more exposure and anyway I hate [select your optional collaborator to hate]:
    a. Marilyn Manson
    b. Dir en Grey
    c. Hyde
27. Not enough collaborations, that could have given them more exposure!


small print disclaimer: yes this is sarcasm, it's just for fun. If you take it to heart, well then... you have no sense of humour LOLOL  8)

LMAO  ;D Good one Teemeah, I lol'd. My thoughts:

1. Song XYZ is too short :(
2. Where the fuck is the lyric booklet???
3. The album is 12 songs... why isn't 15???
4. The album is 15 songs... why isn't it 18???
5. What the hell is Toshi saying...
6. What the hell is Yoshiki saying...
7. Who the hell is this model on the album cover jshfhdjajbahd XD
8. Why isn't song XYZ heavier (and then 2 listens later: ugh I love this song it's the most beautiful, best song ever)
9. Why isn't song XYZ softer (repeat thinking it's the best song ever after 2 listens)
10. I wish the album was longer (see 3 and 4)
11. I wish the album had less songs we'd already heard while still having the songs we've already heard
12. Wtf is this collaboration (followed by: this collab turned out great, I'm really pleased with XYZ)
13. No really where the fuck is the lyric booklet I still don't know how to sing IV



We are not trying to keep the legacy—we are trying to move forward, so our sound is going to change. I’m ready to be criticized, for example by fans saying "you should rather be this style." I’m ready for it, I’m okay with any concept of criticism-Yoshiki

I think no one complains more than I on this board. And I'd rather complain about the shit Yoshiki already did than about an album which wasn't even released yet. If it will ever be.

Teemeah thank you for creating this topic. XD It's beautiful. And once the album drops all the complains will already be here, so we don't have to invent new ones. :D

Here are mine:
- the album doesn't sound as good as Blue Blood
- the album doesn't sound as good as Jealousy
- the album doesn't sound as good as Dahlia
- the new songs don't sound like the old songs
- they don't sound like they sounded in the 80's/90's
- this doesn't sound like X Japan at all
- they have not written "dedicated to hide and taiji" in the booklet
- they only dedicated it to hide/taiji
- the songs are all overproduced
- there is no creativity in the song-writing
- all song lyrics contain the words "rain" or "roses" or...

This is my favourite post ever! Complaining about a thread about complaining because it's not complaining about the right thing. This is genuis!  Love it! :D :D :D

This is my moderator colour

So here's my complains:

1)  Yoshiki is not more longhaired like he was in the '80s
2)  The album tries too much to meet fans' tastes and tells nothing really new
3)  The album doesn't meet fans' tastes and is so different you can't call it "X Japan" any more
4)  Yoshiki's creative boost is too tied to the past
5)  Nooo, Yoshiki can't compose such X-unrelated songs like nothing happened to his band!
6)  Seriously, if he was still longahaired he would compose some actual X songs (see 1) )
7)  Yoshiki can't compose the same old stuff like he was still longhaired
8 )  Yoshiki should wear a shirt or he will catch a bad cold
9)  Yoshiki is not shirtless on the cover!!!! (far more serious)
10) Heath should wear a shirt or he will catch a bad cold
11) OMG why Heath is not shirtless on the cover???

Your scars are beautiful

- The song sounds like an X version of Rosa
- The song sounds like a remake of  I.V.
- I can't sing song XYZ without ending up singing ZYX without even noticing
- Does Yoshiki even realize that he's playing the same song in 28437 variations!?

I'll be in the next chapter...
