Limited Edition deluxe digipack. Digitally remastered edition of Japan's 1978 debut album for Ariola/Hansa Records expanded with 4 bonus enhanced videos, extensive sleevenotes and rare artwork. For an album virtually disowned by the band and slated by reviews ever since, it is actually pretty good. It is, in so many ways, a million miles away from their classics, 'Gentlemen Take Polaroids' and 'Tin Drum'. More influenced by the early glam-rock sounds of Roxy Music and David Bowie. But more than that, on a few tracks, there seems to be a heavy funk sound going on back there. And while it seems to jar with the punk aesthetic so widespread at the time, there are definite influences. The album has a rawer, less particular feel about it, but for all that it, each of the songs seem to be complete and well-rounded. 'Suburban Love' has a Chic-feel to it, and feels slightly subversive. 'Adolescent Sex' sounds just as the title suggests - a little rough, a little fumbling, but kinda fun and naughty all the same. 'Don't Rain on my Parade' is performed with great gusto, and feels like fun - and so it should. 'Television' has a rhythm which could house a lounge-jazz tune, but gradually builds into a crescendo of frustrated angst - 'It's all you ever wanted!'. And although this album sounds different from their later work, there are some definite links: Mick Karn's bass is still key; David Sylvian's voice still dominates; and Richard Barbieri is definitely enjoying getting to grips with his toys. The flaws are there, for sure, but there is definitely something of note in there too.
