This outsider status wasn't entirely unearned; they openly courted controversy with the sleeve of debut single I'll Kill You, which featured the faces of corpses photographed during the Vietnam War.

Rating: 6 I confess i was never a big fan of Vanishing Vision. Its the only X Japan cd that i don´t appreciate that much... From this album forward, they´ve only released magnificent albums.
