Heart-wrenching vocals... Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
A little sad this version is out of print.

This has to be one of HYDE's BEST albums. While 666 is a hardcore rock-like album, Roentgen is a rock ballad-like album. HYDE's vocals are so pure and expressive in this album. This is the english version of it, but the Japanese version is just as good. I highly recommend this album (either version) for a fan who's accumulating a HYDE collection or even those who are new to him.

It's extremely hard to put this album into words... HYDE's mix of rock and violins is purely amazing in tracks like White Song and The Cape of Storms. His touch of Jazz in A Drop of Colour and Evergreen is simpy charming. The album literally feels like an X-Ray into HYDE's heart, mind, and soul (Roentgen means X-ray).

It's simply... HYDE

Love Hyde! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Get this Japan version if you are deciding between this and the English version. I'm no sound expert and my recommendation is based on the overall feel of the albums. I can be bias because I have become Hyde's fan. Almost all the tracks in this version sound wonderful to me even though I didn't rate them with all 5 stars in the English version. I am addicted to The Cape of Storms now, I can say that the track is better with the violin part approaching the end although the composition is still a little lacking. Hyde is truly a great musician. I think he is an intellectual and also very poetic. In this album, he is deeply in thoughts and revealing his feelings and emotions through his impressionistic musical compositions and impressive vocals, and hence giving the album name of Roentgen. Please read all the excellent reviews on both Roentgen versions. Don't miss it for anything!

Cape of Storms Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I saw the promo Video of "The Cape of Storms" on an ANA flight to Japan and was immediately fascinated by the romantic and dark arrangement and HYDE's great voice. This record is a must and I immediately bought it. I hope that HYDE's fan community around the world will grow. I am from Germany and found it interesting, that he was choosing a German name for his album (Mr Roentgen is the inventor of the X-ray).

I just love HYDE's music (and the man is so great).

ROENTGEN gets an X-RAY of HYDE’s thoughts Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Probably the most melodic, English-language influenced and orchestra heavy album ever by HYDE, ROENTGEN almost collectivized my thoughts on the rudiments of reminiscence, rekindle and travel- 3 key elements why this treasure collection of ballads from the vocalist of L’arc-en-ciel is one of his most unique. It develops a lot of influences from all the music styles of the world, added with HYDE’s somewhat unripe English pronunciation and trademark Japanese singing.
Some of the songs in the album give a great correlation to the other: A DROP OF COLOR is a heavy jazzy tune, seemingly complementing a gangster movie with its sultry saxophone. ANGEL’S TALE develops a great notion of “acoustic?roots; the song is mostly HYDE and the vocals, but in the middle of the song, the orchestra blows into a legendary mystic that surrounds the song. EVERGREEN is a ballad type of jazz-acoustic song wherein you feel like being in a wide grassy field filled with the darkened sky, a perfect song for background enhancement. The mighty orchestra fills the air with NEW DAYS DAWN, more like a pathos-enhancing tune for the workers in a factory (notice the “machinery?like tune in the song). OASIS deeply imbues a certain element of western origins, complete with techno-monotonous beats. SECRET LETTERS resemble French music in the movies, as evident in the rudiments of the song, while SHALLOW SLEEP imitates the flavor found in 666 but mellower and more billeting than the latter. THE CAPE OF STORMS made me feel like looking in the deep waves of the sea overlooking a lighthouse, complete with the dark clouds impending rain- a great song of relaxation. UNEXPECTED repeats some of the lyrics and feels like you’re being swallowed in a deep dingy caf? And lastly, my favorite, WHITE SONG, is orchestra heavy and mixed with 10% Japanese lyrics and 90% English (Probably, the song made HYDE tired singing in English!), but what’s striking here is the full-use of tunes that resemble a huge journey and far more- hearing the song at 2:30 onwards feels like the tune of THE CAPE OF STORMS!
As HYDE gets a facelift with 666, ROENTGEN is definitely worth to be bought. The great atmosphere surrounding the album is worth repeating over and over again, showcasing the best of what HYDE could do in the matters of making a ballad album, separating his usual “rock?image.
