Science Fair Soundtrack? .... You Bet! 1 Mar 2002
By R. Max Totten - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Upon first listening to this new piece I must say it's subdued, but not quite a "one note" ambient piece. Reminiscent of elements from "Exhibition" (From Field Work / The Arrangement CD Compilation), "Nostalgia" (From (Not) YMO'sTechnodon) and Music For Yohji Yamamoto Collection 1995, however still a fresh "radar driven" avenue, (compared to recent musical outings) for RS to travel down. I have the disc playing on repeat as I write this and brighter elements seem to keep bubbling to the surface (which in my opinion is a good sign that this disc will have a better shelf life). As far as recent hopes of a "Techno Pop" adventure we can safely assume now and believe Sakamoto as he has stated recently that he is NO longer is interested or excited by that genre.
(Note: The references to past compositions are not intended to dissmissed as regurgitation, but to illustrate a tonal feeling toward this composition.)
A True Masterpiece. 20 May 2014

Sakamoto Ryuichi is my most favorite musician. I have been into his work since I was a teenager.

I will avoid referencing his past work here. To those familiar with his work know huge wide, colorful and deep his work already is. Yet to my surprise, I found this CD only last year. To those of uncontrollable Melomania, this is a must have CD. To me this is Sakamoto's pinnacle of piano, ambiance and electronic music.

I feel that technically deconstructing this album would not be fair towards the true feeling of it. The first time I had listened to it, I put a 100% of my attention with no distractions - since most of his late work requires some form of focus. This album is a true personal inner journey: from "Dawn" to "Radical Fashion" you are taken through a summary of hopeful and desperate feelings. And the moment you finish listening to last piece, you will say: "Wow this was a mind-blast." To me this album has become a drug experience: that I seem to be striving to experience the same feeling I had when listening to it for the first time.

It's an album that allows you to be egoistic - not sharing it with anyone else. I recommend this album for artists seeking to invoke different feelings and emotions before your work. There's no words to describe this. This has become my most favorite album of all time.
