CD Reviews

Definitely an acquired taste
Raymond Larrett | 02/15/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I thought I'd try this after reading about Ms Yano's history of collaboration with David Sylvian, one of my favorite singers. Unfortunately I find this album hard to take; bland, slick instrumentals backing up a woman in her thirties who sings, in a cutesy, little girl's voice, about fey topics like how she'd like to eat a bowl of noodles. I suggest you give the sample tracks a few very good listens before you purchase."
An excellent collection
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A comprehensive overview of her output during the 80's compiled by John Zorn. A super line-up including the entire YMO crew. Go for this one if you cannot find or afford the original Japanese releases."
Like a butterfly ...

"I've listened to her album "Piano Nightly" for years. I like this one even better--it's been a regular in my CD player ever since I bought it. Her voice is whimsical, like a butterfly in a flower garden. You don't need to understand Japanese to understand her songs."
