Japan left their street glam direction behind and jumped right into their sleek euro alien synth mystique immediately. each musician in the group worked together in perfect harmony while defining their own extremely unique personal style, seemingly out of nowhere. this is where each musician's signature playing began to shine in high definition. the look and feel of the band became harder to pin down, but the power of their ideas were impossible to ignore. these are extremely dedicated passionate musicians working to the best of their ability on what would become the first in a series of truly epic japan albums. there's really nothing like it today

The third album, Quiet Life (1979), contained a cover of All tomorrow's Parties by The Velvet Underground. Japan left the glam rock and the accent was more on synthesizers and Giorgio Moroder-like sequencerloops, while the vocals by Sylvian increasingly that of Roxy Music singer Bryan Ferry began to seem. In 1980 came a cover of "I Second that Emotion" released on single. It was originally released by Smokey Robinson the Miracles &. The song, recorded in the Quiet Life-period, a modest hit.
