This album has a jazz, funk mix to it that is beautiful, but the main reason I gave it five stars is probably the smallest recording ( Tokyo Story) in the album; I find it haunting and beautiful.
If a person writes some thing so beautiful once in there lives they need to do no more.

This cd is soporific ! And this is a Sakamoto fan speaking.
The master made so many great albums (Discord, Casa, 1996, BTTB...), I guess he should be forgiven for this one, which is a collection of dull and even sometimes, ridiculous songs.
Sweet revenge fails where an album like Smoochy had succeeded.
It contains almost only repetitive and annoying music, caricatural-groovy-house/r'n b-soup with ridiculous lyrics.
The cover speaks for itself : too much is too much...
Definitely not the best album to discover the incredible sakamoto musical universe !
