Guest review by

The year is 1993. After having recorded the amazing Art of Life, the members of X Japan decided to tour and dedicate themselves to their individual projects.
A quick flash forward to 1996 and we have a more mature X than ever getting ready to produce their fourth and final full-length album, Dahlia. Suffice to say, the pressure was enormous. At this point, they had already acquired the status of most worshipped band ever to emerge from Japan. So how did their final offering turn out, is it something that we can look back to with a smile, saying "Oh, those guys sure went out with a bang!"? Hell yes!

Rating: 9 The epitome of j-metal. Incredible songwriting and emotion. It was also released on my birthday.
