      This title was definitely distributed in Europe by EMI and available for shops to order from them at the same price as domestic releases.

        Very nice pressing! The B side is a bit noisy, especially in the silent/soft passages, but not really that noticeable unless you listen with headphones and you're paying close attention. The cover, and the extras are premium quality, and the splattered vinyl fits in very nicely with the futuristic feel of the album, the only thing that's a minus in this department is if WWS would use plastic sleeves for the LP and a wrap-around obi, like the original, instead of one that folds on the side.
        This pressing is perfect in regards to DR in that is 14, which it is slightly higher than the original CD re-issue from 1983, although that could be due to the increased noise on the B side.
        As for the album itself, it's a very nice mix of jazz fusion/funk with electronic, and it achieves what it was set up to do: paint an esoteric, futuristic picture. While it might not appeal to all tastes, I think it is one of Hideki Matsutake's & Co finest works.

          Another cool album finally re-issued by WeWantSounds. Nice pressing as well. It uses a grate sounding master and is pressed well. The bottle green vinyl looks really cool, it goes with the water effect on the cover. Would love to see a dark pink vinyl to match the writing. The one issue I have its this record is that the obi strip is not transparent. Its plain paper that has been designed to look transparent. looks like the real deal but when opening it the illusion is broken. Only small but many something to learn from. Either way, another Japanese album to add to the collection. Get yourself a copy before people start selling them for stupid prises. I got mine in there sale for just £14!

            Half of this is "ok", but the other half veers dangerously close to dreck at times....I would skip on this and go for his second, self titled release instead. That second release is a masterpiece!
