2006 remastered reissue of Japan's excellent 1980 album including 3 bonus tracks. The lightning follow up to Quiet Life, 1980's Gentlemen Take Polaroids is generally regarded the point at which Japan begin to shape an individual mould for themselves. Not that Duran Duran were in any way disappointed, taking as they did, their cue for their first real hit 'Girls On Film' (1981) directly from this source. Cool and aloof, Sylvian still manages to craft some perfect pop songs ('Swing', 'Methods of Dance') but it's tracks like 'Nightporter' and near instrumentals like 'The Experience of Swimming' and "The Width Of A Room" that show Sylvian driving the band on from pop formula into the sinister and profound. The Roxy Music and Yellow Magic Orchestra are still very much in evidence but the sound is evidently morphing into something alien and unique.
