“you drove the sinner from me
and shone with such glory
touching me softly
my breath torn away”
After Evergreen, the next track in Roentgen’s story is Angel’s Tale. Sad and melancholy lullaby that totally envelopes your whole being. It’s really amazing to hear a J-Rock singer to be able to compose and sing something so slow and so heartfelt like this.
To me, that makes him special and different from his L’arc~en~cial members and most rock stars. I wonder he was partially influenced by Robert Smith (The Cure). His first solo album Roentgen show that deep and poetic side of him…….
