CD Reviews

Experimental music with superb bass playing
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is a nice sample of music from the former bass player of the British '80s group Japan. The music is very experimental, with influences ranging from ethnic music from all over the world, to modern electronic dance music. The best part of Karn's music, though, is his style of bass-playing. He is an absolutely unique player. He really gets the full potential out of his fretless bass - he must have elastic wrists. Truly a unique musician. (They still exist!) I recommend Mick Karns music to everyone who likes experimental contemporary music, but also to everyone who enjoys virtuoso, original bass playing."
A Brilliant Career - long may it continue!
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As an "old romantic", I have recently got back into the habit of listening to Japan, Mick Karn and Rain Tree Crow. Mick Karn is versatile, diverse, multi-talented (just look at his sculptures) and can play 22 different instruments. How many people can boast that? And, this is particularly amazing - if as it has been documented - as he cannot read a note of music. I love "Titles" particularly "Sensitive" which is the embodiment of what I actually feel. And also love "Sound of Waves" - very evocative. This collection is more macho, darker and more jazz-influenced than I thought it would be. "There was not anything but nothing" should be used as a TV soundtrack. Mick - keep it up!"
A Best Of.....this has got to be love

"Oh and what a wonderful slew of special guests on this album. You know, Mick has been on a host of brilliant work for years, AND IT'S NICE TO SEE THE OLD CHAP CAPITOLIZING ON HIS COLLABORATORS ALBUMS. He's a brilliant man, and the buck ain't gonna stop here. Want some advice? Find the rare albums, THE TOOTH MOTHER, BESTIAL CLUSTER. This man is beautiful, and if you're a bassist (as am I), he will blow your mind and reshape your world. Goodbye earthlings, and here's to better tomorrows."
