This record reminds me of being stuck on a slow rail replacement bus, on a rainy night in the dead of winter after a horrible day working in Liverpool. While that might give the impression that I don't like this record, I actually find these thoughts very comforting. And listening to this LP puts me in the mind of being glad to be heading home after a hard day.

absolutely stunning album. i listened to it in its entirety while walking thru a tbilisi fortress and it was...a life changing experience. mr. sakamoto said that he intended to make an album that sounds like the soundtrack to a tarkovsky movie that does not exist....i think he more than achieved that with this album.

I was looking at the other comments about the noise, and while my vinyl plays the 2 LPs entirely fine, the surface noise is a bit loud during the quiet bits. I would recommend getting the Japanese version if you can. As for the music itself, it's amazing and unlike anything I've heard before.

Mine sounds great, overall fantastic package, poly vinyl sleeves. Great wake up morning coffee record. Highly recommended.

I have some unwanted clicks in quiet parts... very bad for a new vinyl record

Such a beautiful & trippy creation. A must have. The pressing quality is fine in every aspect.

Maybe there are decent copies out there, but I've gone through 2 and both were noisy and clicky throughout, just as the 2 other Milan Sakamoto releases I've purchased were. Will not buy their releases again. Such a pity.

An absolutely astounding modern classical record... from it's first second until it's end. Rightfully FACTmag's album of the year.

I love the Chopin-inspired piece, Full Moon.

For an insight into how this album was made, you can watch Coda the documentary about Sakamoto. He has got that incessant artist creative nature that cannot be abated.
