The third album, Quiet Life (1979), contained a cover of All tomorrow's Parties by The Velvet Underground. Japan left the glam rock and the accent was more on synthesizers and Giorgio Moroder-like sequencerloops, while the vocals by Sylvian increasingly that of Roxy Music singer Bryan Ferry began to seem. In 1980 came a cover of "I Second that Emotion" released on single. It was originally released by Smokey Robinson the Miracles &. The song, recorded in the Quiet Life-period, a modest hit.
