bought my download version right before I went to anime expo, was listening to this while walking and sleeping and thought about maybe making this an anime AMV with deadman wonderland.....

but yea this version is awesome, america should make it number 1 too....

I thought the song was being released worldwide on the same day so Canda still doesnt have it? wow

Sugizo just released a statement about the release of Jade in Japan. One area of interest includes this remark:

"Our recording still continues for the new album. We are trying our best to release it in this year somehow."

Last we heard, the album was slated for a late summer release, but with them STILL recording, i'm not sure I see them making this release possible. I think we'll be expecting another delay. :P

As much recording as they have done...we could have had 3 or 4 albums (or even a damn box set) of material by now.

It's actually insane how long it's taking them...especially when 50% of the content is just a re-record in English. This album should not be taking 2-3 years to release. In my opinion, fuck the cartoon character with Marvel/Stan Lee and focus more on the MUSIC. The comic is kind of lame publicity/another way to rake in cash. I hope Yoshiki's head hasn't gotten too big in North America. I love them man but wow...the album should be their top priority along with the tour (which is finally happening)

This is exactly what happened with Dahlia. In the end, the album just ended up being a singles collection from the previous few years. The problem is, unfortunately, that Y just can't let go of the recordings. He's said it in the past and reiterated again in a recent interview.
Meanwhile, golden opportunities are missed and fans become disillusioned. I remember feeling the same way when I was waiting for Dahlia to come out.

@ Brandon - And nothing of value was lost.... seriously. (I'm trying to be mean or anything, but. . . to me, it feels like they're just throwing out excuses for the Hell of it.)

@ Niwatorinator - Isn't new album supposed to have only a few new songs (i.e. "Jade") & the rest just re-dubs of old songs?

Yes that's what the problem is in my opinion. The new songs and old songs have no continuity in sound or production. If you listen to, say, Jade and the original Kurenai back to back on an album, it just doesn't sound right.
I think that might be what Y is struggling with... making a collection of songs sound like an album.

Yeah, even as a blind X-Japan follower myself, I feel that this recording time has taken far too long.

The faithfuls will still go, the shows will still be great, but it feels like promotion for nothing sometimes.  The comic may be awesome but what does it lead to?  If anything, new fans might get disenchanted waiting for so long, will say "Screw this" and just download the original Japanese tracks along with the endless sea of live footage out there.  He'd be better off just releasing what he has already- the live footage from L.A. mixed with the promotional stuff he shot inside the theater with the masquerade and stuff, finally using that footage from the Nokia Theater for the Born to be Free track(everyone forget about that? XD ) and just kinda doing a last minute touch up of stuff and releasing his god damned stuff.

agreed you should only take so long to release something, 2010 was so much filming and recording including adding the fans and not everything was release so fans got tired. The push back of Jade came because of the "earthquakes".

Born free would be nice to have had sooner but we all know Yoshiki is a perfectionist and wants it done they way he imagines and won't settle for less but let's not hope it lags the new cd too long, even thou they still have a long tour ahead of them.

Here the lyrics as the were printed in the Band Score:


Walk through the light to find the shadow,
Til' your gods stall you from the edge,
Sunk in the thought, the feel, the distance,
Was it your secret?
Stop holding your fear, let memory live and die alone.
No need to be there, let your desire scream,

Til' you feel alive.
'Cause you are beautiful,
Your scars are beautiful,
Like the jade.
You'll still shine, when you sink into the sea,
When the bleeding scarlet jealousy, carves the way you believe.

Brink of the light, the wings of the night,
Look into the eyes of fallen angels,
Sink like a stone in the dark,
Where no light can touch.
Will god break my fall?
I feel the mystery, tries to take me along,
To the end of the world, where I still believe,
The colour is from your eyes.

'Cause you were beautiful,
Your blood was beautiful, yesterday,
I still hide at the seam of memories,
Oh, I still hold my rosary, beneath the pain of life.
Where the tears, when the bloody face of love, they take away the stain,
Know that the stars of the sky,
Glow in the ocean,
The art of life,
Makes me wanna die in the colour of heaven.

Oh, another day has gone,
Another friend has gone into the flame,
It's burning now, jibun de krisaita mune no kizuato sae birei ni naru made.

Oh, 'cause you are beautiful,
Your scars are beautiful, like the jade,
You'll still shine, when you sink into the sea,
When the bleeding scarlet jealousy carves the way you believe,
Now and forever, you'll be loved,
Let your destiny lead your heart
My jade

Still waiting on the one Dean Karr directed...I bet Yoshiki didn't even finish it.
