ghosts is excellent,
This review is from: The Very Best Of Japan (Audio CD)
I only bought this for Ghosts really as I used to have this on 7' vinyl....and this is one of the rare moments I can say I prefered my vinyl, reason being my vinyl version crackled slightly and that made the song a bit spooky in a strange kind of way.....Quiet life always sounds like Duran Duran if you ask me and Life In Tokyo backing music tries to be a sort of Gary Numan-ish
never a big fan of Japan but Ghosts and Quiet Life are my favourite 2 singles
Symph pop was ok and some classic bands came out such as Teardrop Explodes but im more the punk/newave fan and the 2-tone/ska sort of person anyway so I cant really judge Japan really but will leave that to the real fans......Ghosts is a 5* song in my opinion!
