Oh, how I loved Japan, etc, etc...... Mick Karn inspired me to take up bass at the age of 15. I love them all for trying on Rain Tree Crow, but David Sylvian seemingly tried to tried to turn it into a solo album with cheap session musicians under the guise of collaboration with former bandmates. So unfortunate to be David Sylvian, stuck with who he is. It must be so hard and torturous, as he'd try to have you believe. As for Sylvian's actual albums, I guess you just need to decide for yourself. There are some good moments, but the extraneous collabrations are much better than this.

Sad to say, just a god-awful copy of this record. Deep visible scratches across multiple tracks on both sides, as though this was pulled from the press by the claws of disgruntled crows! Just terrible - wish I had taken these comments more seriously before purchasing. More than happy to stick with my original CD. Disappointing.

I’ll join the choir of people with bad pressings. The first one record was sent back and the second sounded just as awful :-(.....tons of surface noise

My copy sounds great, no issues. Plus the download is of WAV files.

Horrible pressing! Very loud vinyl - surface noise and crackling all the time. Forget it!

"
The majority of the material on this album was written as a result of group improvisations. There were no pre-rehearsals; the improvisation took place in the recording studio and much of the finished work contains original elements of those initial performances." This is not true as stated in many Japan biographies, including Mick Karn's.

Rain Tree Crow

David Sylvian , Steve Jansen , Richard Barbieri , Mick Karn , the names are familiar but not the sound.

After the disbanded from those glamorous new wave group : Japan , all this intellegent musician go follow their own path . Then they meet again on this crossroad called ; Rain Tree Crow. .. a soft fragile beauty of a plaintive and emotive atmospheric ambient pop music . Incredebille soundscape that takes you into endless isolated beauty .

Labels : Virgin Records
Released : UK 1991

I loved everything Japan and Sylvian released up to "Secrets Of The Beehive" but despite trying to listen to this several times I can't feel any emotions coming out from these "songs", I find this record extremely boring and emotionless, only a ray of sunshine sparks through "Every Colour You Are" and "Blackwater", the rest is impossible to bear...
Such a shame considering the 4 talented musicians involved!

This is one of Sylvians reissues that actually makes so much sense. Heavier vinyl for better sound and a freshened up art/layout. Excellent version.
