      X-Japan, Siam Shade, Do As Infinity, The Pillows, B'z, Asian Kungfu Generation, Nanase Aikawa..hell, I even like some of the J-Pop stuff like Ayumi Hamasaki and Puffy. I like the fact that unlike here in the west the pop stuff isn't just half-arsed R&B beats but has actually some nice guitar playing or otherwise interesting ideas. Good stuff, good stuff.

      Does Tak Matsumoto Group count considering they sing in English and most of the members are not Japanese?

            I saw the BORDOMS once. The lead singer came out wearing some of those tiny glasses people use in tanning booths...screamed really loud then threw himself into the crowd. It was a fun show.

                oh yeah i forgot about gazette

                I just bought the US release of dir en greys withering to death. Just to support.
                What is up the DVD that came with it? The tour of vulgar part is just clips of songs!
                I also can't believe they are on the family values tour.

                    No, because any music not created on the continent of N. America has no credibility and sucks. Especially Japanese music. All their crazy songs about giant monsters, eating raw fish and automotive supremacy makes me sick!!



















                    Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.

                    The priests of the different religious sects...dread the advance of science as witches do the approach of daylight, and scowl on the fatal harbinger announcing the subdivision of the duperies on which they live.

                      Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.

                          Also, Zeni Geva is pretty fun.

                          I hope that you remember the things you had to say/ it's just a supernatural delay
