If one ever imagined how "Japan" would sound - David Sylvian, Mick Karn, Steve Jansen and Richard Barbieri (minus Rob Dean, who left the group at this point) did their best to provide with a weirdly beautiful provocative audio-postcard from China, confronting the modern and the traditional into one damn great, ethnically funky cocktail of sounds, in stark contrast to the karaoke-machines and expensive automated hi-gloss production of the workaholic country their name so implies on.

Finding an obscure Synth-Pop is deeply rewarding. It's a sensation felt when an LP such as 'Tin Drum', 'B-2 Unit' or 'Logic System' fall into your hands. Probably for the whole aesthetic concept, the Synth timbres, the melodies & surrounding atmospheric chords, the instruments interaction with vocals, and, most of all, that ability to embrace with identity the introspectiveness & the infectious dancing sides.
