3.0 out of 5 stars The Dorian Gray of the avant garde gets angry and political!
" World Citizen " is the fourth singles collaboration between two seminal figures in electronic pop - Sylvian and Sakamoto. The lyrical content of both songs marks a departure for Sylvian's usual oblique, poetic style.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Dorian Gray of the avant garde gets angry and political!, 21 Jun. 2004
This review is from: World Citizen (Audio CD)
" World Citizen " is the fourth singles collaboration between two seminal figures in electronic pop - Sylvian and Sakamoto. The lyrical content of both songs marks a departure for Sylvian's usual oblique, poetic style.
There are no references to Tarkovsky, and French left bank existentialism as was the case in his finely crafted solo albums such as "Secrets of the Beehive" and "Brilliant Trees". Instead, he opts for a direct assault on the Bush administration and American multi-national shennanigans; The result of this approach is one of curious nievity and sincere honesty.
The music accompanyment in " World Citizen" is suprisingly pedestrian given his recently successful foray into glitch electronica and Improv experimentalsim with last years' "Blemish". However, " World Citizen (I won't be dissapointed) offers a much more varied pallette of sounds with Sketchshow (Haroumi Hosono and Yuhkiro Takahashi) at the production helm. Overall, a delight to see Sylvian standing up to America (His adopted homeland)and offer more overtly political material in a way that dosen't cynically jump on the artistic bandwagon of " Yankbashing" like Madonna and other artists in the mainstream.

5.0 out of 5 stars A message to Us, 16 Jan. 2008

This review is from: World Citizen (Audio CD)
David wrote the unusual socio-lyrics about the world around us with direct impact. Nice downtempo and acousto-rock track for anyone who feels to be a citizen of this world (an Artistotelis concept of being a "cosmopolitan"; citizen of cosmos (order))

4.0 out of 5 stars Pull out track from CHASM, 21 Feb. 2005

(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: World Citizen (Audio CD)
World Citizen is the key track from the CHASM album. It's a beautiful and thoughtful collaboration with David Sylvian.
This particular release offers some decent variations, as well as the original track, but to get the full impact and context it's worth hearing in the setting of the excellent CHASM album.
View this as a maxi-single.
