5.0 out of 5 stars 'Ultimate Collection' - AMAZING sound!, 28 Jun. 2005
Marco Rossini "Marco" (England, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Uc Ymo (Audio CD)
To mark its 25th anniversary since the emergence of YMO, this new best album was released with 2 discs. Although there have already been a number of 'YMO Bests' and 'YMO Remixes', one of the main differences between 'UC YMO' and previously published best albums is that Ryuichi SAKAMOTO himself is supervising the album and in charge of the selection of the tracks. Although it is all in Japanese, Sakamoto also gives intriguing commentary on each piece. The re-mastered and improved sound quality is another element that makes this best album worth having, and this also includes very rare material (TV commercial version, 7-inch single version etc.) which has never been published before. This is a Japanese import, and therefore slightly costly, but (1) Sakamoto's supervision, (2) his commentary on every track, (3) the much improved sound quality and (4) the rare material would, I believe, be reasons enough for any YMO fan to consider getting hold of this 'Ultimate Collection'!!

FYI: YMO was re-united for one night only for the Earth Live event from Kyoto, Japan (07/07/07). They were the last group to appear on stage in Japan and played a few numbers including the legendary 'Rydeen' with a new interpretation, which you can see on YouTube.
