    Clearly better than the US release.
    Fantastic record !
    The first Japanese release, with the different sleeve, is also amazing, and i think even better than this one (more sweet, less punchy, but with a wonderful alternative production by Hosono)

      The first Japanese pressing of the US remix album ? I don't know about the mixage on the first pressing, if we can dinstinguish something really different in the sound.
      But I guess, the Cover of this one (The First US pressing) is more in adequation with the music of the album at some points.
      The Woman on the cover, maybe she represent the track "La Femme chinoise" and this air, her style correspond well at eletronic movements and movement in general, of the Yellow Magic Orchestra (album). This cover correspond more of the second face of this album. By the way, when the second part album start, between "Tong Poo" and "Mad Pierrot", she never stoped before the end of the last song. This is like one amazing giant song , with somes womens voice to guide us through. May they represented the woman on the cover ?
      The Face A of the album is delimited between "Computer Game (Theme from 'The Circus')" and "computer Game "Theme From The Invader"" these both effects are the line of this first part.
      So I have nothing agaisnt the first cover of this album. It's just an analysis of these kind covers.
      These elements make feel this album in two differents parts, with two differents covers, one seems definetly more coherent !
