This is one of the greatest synthpop albums I've ever heard, and I've heard quite a few.

Every song is great...there are no duds here. Naughty Boys has stood the test of time as well...a dj could play this and Ladytron back to back and I doubt many would realize that Naughty Boys is over 20 years old.

Most of the songs on Naughty Boys are poppy and irresistably dancey. Yukihiro Takahashi's drumming is top notch. There are darker moodier (though still dancable) moments with the brilliant 'Lotus Love'. Some songs feature the dreamy e-bow guitar by Bill Nelson, which just adds to its brilliance.

Some exceptional songs are Lotus Love, Kimi Ni Mune Kune, Ongaku, Wild Ambitions. But make no mistake, there are NO bad songs on the cd.

Most of the lyrics are in Japanese. There is also an interview with all the members in the cd booklet but it too is in Japanese. The 2nd cd features all the songs instrumental versions, except for Kimi Ni Mune Kune which is replaced by Chaos Panic. I myself prefer the cd with lyrics.

Kraftwerk, Gary Numan, Ultravox and The Human League have gotten a lot of recognition for their music over the years, but YMO deserve just as much.

Every song is great...there are no duds here. If you're into so called 'electroclash' music that so many are buzzing about these days, then you'll love this. Naughty Boys has stood the test of time as well...a dj could play this and Ladytron back to back and I doubt many would realize that Naughty Boys is 20 years old.

Buy Naughty Boys and see for yourselves what a great band YMO were.

YMO's fourth album is an absolutely fantastic slice of 80s synth pop. Truly cutting edge for the time, the album features huge, lush arrangements that are years ahead of the rest of electronic music. Fortunately the album isn't just a tech-demo of the cutting edge music technology of the early 80s, it's also a fantastic pop record.

This might not be YMO's most ambitious album, but it has a special place in my heart. For one thing, Bill Nelson adds his distinctive guitar to the proceedings. I think he was the only guest musician to appear on a YMO album. The band sound very relaxed and having lots of fun. This album points the way to what Sakamato and Takahashi would do on their own early solo albums. It's pop, but very sophisticated pop and maybe this album is more influential than given recognition for, considering what the likes of the group Japan, David Sylvian and even Bill Nelson himself produced. Very enjoyable indeed and the instrumental disc stands on it's own too.
