What a bunch of teases! instead of actually making the announcement on the 25th, they hype things up for weeks, with the big announcement that they're going to make an announcement at the end of the month! GAH! I love Luna Sea but they're driving me crazy in anticipation! lol

Great! I actually think that Luna Sea are very, very underrated. But maybe they'll catch some attention with this reboot stuff and everybody will notice how great they are :). And I seriously hope that theyll have better luck with their reunion than X did.. :P I think you know what I mean.

Don't know if it has been posted before but Luna Sea will release a new single on march 21st. The songtitle hasn't been revealed yet, but the song is over 20 minutes long, so I'm really looking forward to it. It will be released as a normal CD, SACD, HQCD and as a set with all the types included + a DVD http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=YIZQ-10224

Listened to this song about 4 times now and it has definitely grown on me since the first listen or two. I think comparing it to Art of Life is no the best idea...the only similarity in my opinion is that they both are longer than the average song. The One is really soothing and very much Luna Sea...but I dislike how broken and separated the song feels. It's like 3 or 4 small songs put together. The beginning and ending are my favourite parts.

sorry to say but I suddenly became more positive about songs like born to be free :P

Lets hope Sugizo can put all his creativity in Luna Sea so he'll listen to Yoshiki when he's playing for X Japan haha

Haha, well, although I don't know who wrote the most of that song, I guess we can agree on that Sugizos songwriting and guitarplaying may not be your cup of the tea ;) But maybe you'd like this one of his solo songs: Enola Gay. If Yoshiki would have wanted to go more into the metal direction he probably should have gotten someone like Teru, Hizaki, masa or Panther ;)

And speaking of The one, just listened to the songs a couple of times today when I went to work and I really start to get more and more into the song.

Yoshiki has already stated that his preference or direction for X Japan now is "edgy". So edgy, hard rock. I think we can kiss any hopes of pre-dahlia style metal songs goodbye. I've accepted that fact and don't really mind what they are doing now; I really like Jade a lot.

Jade is alright, Born to be free is meh to me, it's like an anime theme sound...

We haven't heard the full studio version yet so it's too early to pass judgement. Remember Jade in its early days? It was horrid...now it's awesome.

I don't have high hopes again with X Japan
Like Jade, I wouldn't call it awesome...but that just me though...

@ Matthias, I listened to The One again and that solo song of Sugizo. You're right, it's not my cup of tea but if it is played in the background it's ok.
I don't know why you guys like it. I think it's really different from X Japan's music. I can't listen X Japan when I need to study for instance but with Luna Sea it's better not to focus on the music. If I do I get like wtf is this transition?! I still like some songs of Luna Sea like "Another" (perhaps because its sounds like stairway to heaven :P)

I like IV the most of X Japan's new songs because it was quite special just after their reunion and the fact they used a riff from hide. Jade is pretty catchy but I'm not so fond of the solo and the bridge reminds me of a cartoon I used to watch as a child...anyone else knows Alfred Jodokus Kwak? lol

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UKQVlOxgO4&feature=related This one about 1:00

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e10d5x8RxsI Jade at about 1:20

Have you guys heard their new album? It's pretty fantastic, and makes me sad that X Japan can't do half the things they've done since they've reunited (Several DVD/Blu-ray releases of new concerts, new songs and album, etc.) They're also one of the few bands that I think sound better live post reunion than before.

At the end of the year Luna Sea will release their new album 'LUV'. While I didn't love every song from their last record it was still a decent record and some songs I really like, i.e.

Rogue

so I'm still looking forward to their new album.

Somehow I cannot get used to their singer's singing style. It just hurts my ears. :D Not sure why. But there are a few songs I like. I will definitely check it out. Sugizo's new solo album is coming soon, too.

Ryuichi's singing stlye I got used to pretty quick, whom it really took me a while is Kamijo (and masa lol).

With Ryuichi the only thing I'd complain (and that's way too hard of a word) is that his voice (or the way he uses it) changed a lot from his early days. For example compare the same song from
1992
