Visual kei at its best with a truly amazing bass solo.
I don't care that the song was from visual kei days, but there is meaning behind it. It starts out very slow and beautiful but ends up rocking out. The lyrics are beautiful and this song always strikes something in me. Toshiya's bass solo was also incredible. Kyo's singing was also perfect. It's like the whole band's soul is in that song.
My favourite of this Dir en Grey's era, the guitar solo at the beginning is truly enchanting. It's my mom's favourite too. not kidding.
This song is full of bass! Yomi's voice is wonderful! With beautiful lyric too!
I love everything about this song! Like, all the parts seem to fit perfectly :) Guitar solo, the bass, the drumming, and also yomi's voice just sounds amazing all together! Come on people vote vote vote!
This song is great I always sing it even if no-one knows what I'm saying and it's music was written by Ni~Ya (BASS) and he did a great job!
Love him, and his music! He is just individual as his music. He is the best singer ever! Mizerable is a very beautiful song with the violin play - just listen and enjoy!
His songs always have meaning to something in our lives, Mizerable is one of them like the other songs written by him. My favourite forever is Tsuki no Uta, an beautiful song
even though it was his first solo single I think its the best.

just ask the new fans since 2007, they love this song
we need new songs like this, you go argue with me that this is popular, but there are very annoying people who pm me, lectured me but I heard these songs in japanese rock forums a lot and you can find lots of d'erlanger in japan and here because I want these bands to be popular as well
kurenai is old and everyone who knows j-rock esp x knows it try something new and don't stick to one band, xxx for you is one of the main reasons why I love d'erlanger and that song introduced me to the band

this is my favorite song of dir en grey, the sound and the lyrics always reminds me my childhood, its a masterpiece mixed with music.
DIR EN GREY!
This song is amazing! One of my favorites from my very favorite band! It deserves to be up much higher on the list than this.
Amazing song and Gackt at his best.
Intro and refrain are just gorgeous, Hyde's voice reaches a heart-swelling falsetto. Apart from that, it's the opening of Gundam 00 and contains a meaning of critic against war and fight.
the intro is one of the best hard rock riffs
Accompanied by the majestic orchestral band, this song injects a certain noir sentiment that reminds you of some tragic, moving, rush of love. Plus, the bass is of top-notch quality, too. Listening to this will sweep you away for a tribute to great, yet tragic life, all in just 5 minutes of your time.
cool song. very like the drum beat and fill in. guitar melody also sounds great.
Love this song! The melody and lyrics are pretty good, also Hyde voice is sexy as alwaysListen to sample

It's maybe the only song I've ever feel on my skin... Music and words and his voice... Simply the best! Really it must be more higher in chart! And more other songs of the group are great!
Toy Soldier is a song with happy tune and positive meaning. It will bright up your day. The lyrics is very encouraging and the pv of the songs suit perfectly to the song. Their style is also very nice and cute that everyone will love it.
Great japanese indie song with an awesome solo and powerful lyrics.
Great japanese indie/alternative rock at its best and an awesome harmonica solo.
It's a really good song!Listen to sample
I love the music and lyrics of this song. Very beautiful and unique.
Such a good cover of Edith Piaf's original song..
the original band who composed the song LA VIE EN ROSE, this song is also played by MUCC
The saddest song I have ever heard.
Totally beautifull... I don't know a word of japanese but still I liked this song so much when I first listened to it... The soft and soothing guitars combined with sudden increase in tempo makes it one of the best ever
This became my first favorite Gackt song! And still is one of them up to this day. The long intro was what made me remember it the first time I heard it. But everything about the song beautiful. You could really feel Gackt's emotion while singing this one.
Gives me shivers every time I hear it. Amazing, powerful song, great to hear live as well.
Seeing one of the greatest, the most powerful songs I've heard so far not even in the top 100 makes me really sad. A song that sounds so thrilling on live performances, where all the musicians give their best, where the melody is so easy to remember, but unique and interesting in the same time, really deserves higher rank.

This song is really good you should hear it!
You've gotta listen to every single Alice Nine's songs! They're really awesome! Especially 'Senkou, Hana, Mirror Ball, Velvet, White Prayer, ...
laugh out loud, most of them are composed by Hiroto of Alice Nine... I LOVE HIM!
Please vote 'Senkou' after listening to it
You'll 100% fall in love with it
Love how they put a vampire in the music video and shows her biting them. The music is great. Recommended
