    Memorable Ryuichi Sakamoto's first album
    The ability of music composition learned at Tokyo University of Arts is felt in music
    Later on being played many times with YMO
    B1.Das Neue Japanische Elektronische Volkslied made influenced by Kraftwerk is particularly high quality as electronics music at the time

      Listening to this on vinyl with my set up was something else, definitely never experienced the album like this before.
