Format: Paperback
This book is worth buying for the gorgeous cover picture alone,and contains an adequate history of Japan and David Sylvian.As David has always been something of an enigma,it comes as no suprise that there is little personal information in the book.However,the writing is engaging and it provides a good overview and written introduction to his work.

Martin Power's excellent biography of David Sylvian took me into the mind of the enigmatic front-man of Japan. As well as covering the Japan years, Power takes a look at Sylvian's solo work and shows a great appreciation and understanding of his subject.

lots of little inaccuracies make me distrust everything else in this book. essentially culled from old interviews and reviews. it's a shame that this is the only sylvian biography around as his legacy could be better served by a decent writer.

HASH(0x8ed2b66c) out of 5 stars Japan's ex-frontman Sylvian...a prolific poet & Musician 28 Jan. 2001
By Deborah Graham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Beauty, sensitivity, honesty, and passion are all evident in the work of a man who can only be described as this countries most eclectic and prolific private musician, with work spanning four decades David Sylvian has nothing to prove, with a dedicated following he can confidently move on into any genre he feels willing to explore, this book shows his complex thoughts and ideals. Trophies 2 points specifically to his past and present lyrics and helps to understand the music and the textures he creates, this is'nt just for the besotted Sylvian follower but for the writers and poets of the next generation.
