CD Reviews

Definetly a Sunday album....
04/06/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"An eclectic mix of Global Communication-esque ambience, jazzy noodling, laid back beats, and a pinch of squidgyness make an ideal Sunday album for those who like a good lie in. Imagine Nils Petter Moiver, but replace the trumpet with spacey Brian Eno textures."
Jansen / Barbieri / Takemura / Japan CD

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I already owned the whole UK Medium Production catalogue, (15 CDs) including Jansen/Barbieri/Takemura's "Changing Hands" (MPCD6).
This was an alternative label run from former Japan's members: Steve Jansen, Richard Barbieri and Mick Karn.

I bought this CD - which was actually firstly issued in Japan the 15th July 1997 - since it features a Takemura's nice Remix of "At Eleven" as track #7, instead of the UK "Memory and Listening".

After listening, I discovered that track #3 ("regular" edit of "At Eleven") also differs from the UK version. It was mixed by Nobukazu Takemura as well, instead of Steve Jansen & Richard Barbieri.
This is an actual alternative edit, thus making this CD even more interesting both from a listener' and a collector's point of view.

For JBK followers: highly recommended! A part from the OBI strip a small colour artwork sheet is also included, not in the UK version.

NB: Watch out! Pay cheap for a OBI-less second hand item: CD is still printed and available in Japan!

Moderno y Muy Agradable
Maximo Enrique Barreiro | Capifal Federal Argentina | 07/24/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Los trabajos de Jansen Barbieri, y Karn a veces, son todos recomendables y de una calidad muy pareja y buena, y exelentemente producidos. Estos ex-integrantes de Japan han seguido haciendo una musica de muy buenos, sencillos y agradables arreglos, y con los aportes de Takemura han logrado este exelente CD, con "toques" casi Ambient por momentos, sin caer en el "ruido-sin-sentido", que demuestra que todavia gozan de lo que hoy dia NO es muy comun, que es el Buen Gusto. Recomiendo ampliamente este CD a todos los que habitualmente escuchan musica sencilla pero compleja en su construccion, instrumental, bien producida y sampleada, al estilo Sylvian, Massive Attack, algo de Triqui, algo de Eno, Etc. Unico defecto: nadie canta, sino le pondria 5 estrellas. Si fuera Sylvian, 10 estrellas."
