CD Reviews

Mood creating blue jazz with smooth instrumentals and voice
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sakamoto is the master of all genres, and this album is no exception.

Begins with warmth, ends with peace, and a smattering of feelings in between. This runs the gamut of emotions, and is able to move you along with them.

IF you want to enhance your mood and pick yourself up, get this CD.

Track 4, LuLu is a very urban feel, much like Take Five. High Heels, on the other hand, (which is from a movie) is a very rainy-day in Paris feel, you can almost see rose petals falling on a gray backdrop. Very touching.

I give this CD a high rating, and think it is universally appealing.

Amazingly inventive

"Along with Sweet Revenge, probably my favourite Sakamoto album. Endlessly inventive and entertaining, it veers from jazz to rap to film soundtrack. Highlights are his solo piano tracks, and David Sylvian's contribution on the exquisite Hearbeat."

"Whatever you want to call this collection, house, dance, pop, it's all good...This time Sakamoto has updated his pop-eclectic dance sound a notch or two from his previous titles...He shows he can still keep in touch and move with the times (even for the early 90's). Yet, the music maintains it's Japanese musical influences. One of the sweetest ear catching tracks is Sayonara (Good-bye) as Sakamoto sings with the silky background female vocals singing "sayonara"...All other tracks are pretty much a menagerie of catchy and dance accessible tunes !"
