I can understand why D Sylvian didn't want to market this under former band Japan's name - it is nothing like Japan. The sound is darker, with a more American country feel (perhaps the influence of Sylvian now living in America?), and some tracks are almost instrumental befre Sylvian finally crops up. If it had been sold under the Japan name, no doubt everyone would have said "This isn't Japan!" It plays more like a film soundtrack at times.
This is one of the albums that shows Mr Sylvian's voice getting gradually richer, deeper and with mroe of a burr. By 'Sleepwalkers' he sounds like he's on 50 Marlboro a day. But a very rich and involving sound.
When there are records like this in existence, it makes you wonder how Boyzone ever got in the charts ....

A very cliched, stereotypical boyband that Brits were forced to listen to in the 1990s. I had extensive therapy after coming across them on the radio one day. Just kidding, but they were truly awful! Thanks for your comment.
