This song reminds me of Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin so much. I mean they don't sound alike at all but the structure is quite similar I think, it's a long song that consists of many parts which would work as short songs.

It's the hell of a song and Taiji does a little tapping in it, what can you want more? :wink:

Strange you say that when art of life has been sometimes called Japan's stairway to heaven, which also imo works better as "a long song that consists of many parts which would work as short songs. " compared to stairway then rose of pain does.

I NEVER want ot hear some short versions of that song! I actually need the full 30 minutes there to come down from that trip again... really it wouldn't be 'satisfying' to me to listen to short versions... >.>

Everywhere there flows...... BLUE BLOOD!!

Same here ! When I start to listen to Art Of Life, I really have to listen to it entirely ! I hate when I have to stop it in the middle...

You misunderstood my post, I wasn't saying Art of life would work better as a shorter song, or that art of life should be several short songs. I'd HATE that, 30 minutes only all the way.

I said that most people say art of life is Japan's stairway to heaven, not rose of pain, and one of the reasons its thought of as japan's stairway to heaven is because of the reasons you stated "I mean they don't sound alike at all but the structure is quite similar I think, it's a long song that consists of many parts which would work as short songs."

I'm saying people think what you think, but with art of life instead, and I just said it was odd you thought of rose of pain instead of art of life like other people. While there could be some brilliant short songs made out of art of life, or art of life would be good as a short song, I'd never want that, ever.

On the Stairway to Heaven comparison, personally I think Rose of Pain is more like Stairway than Art of Life is.  Stairway and Rose of Pain build up more consistently throughout the song, while Art of Life has the piano solo in the middle (which I love by the way, yes even the banging on the keys part), giving it a break in the climbing motion.

Also I find Art of Life to be significantly more epic than Stairway, while Stairway and Rose of Pain are about on the same epic level for me.

Rose of Pain is a great song on its own, though I've always seen it as a kind of "test run" for Art of Life.

I know exactly what you mean, it has the same effect on me, its painfull perfection.

I ´m probably not the first one who found similarities of Rose of Pain with this song, but it wasn´t mentioned here.

I felt a bit, ergh, when I found I had to bump this from two years ago, but I believe I've found (in low quality) the best live version of Rose of Pain (imo), Toshi's vocals are crazy. Don't know if people have heard it yet, but I had to post it. We need more official proshot footage of old X gigs dammit.
