It took me years to discover this pearl despite being a huge Moroder fan and also loving a lot of New Wave. I only like certain songs by Japan, but this one blow me away. Must be best of both worlds: disco and new wave. Very strong and highly recommended.

Great early New Wave track. Definitely sounds a lot like Planet Earth from Duran Duran. Heck Sylvian even had a similar hairdoo as Nick Rhodes.

My UK red vinyl pressing sounds excellent, only on the vocals it sounds clipped/distorted/scratchy on some parts, even tested with a new stylus.

This release has an incorrect production credit for "European Son". It was actually produced by Simon Napier-Bell and Japan, remixed by John Punter.
