After seeing Japan endure the worst reaction ever from a Glasgow audience, supporting Blue Oyster Cult, I dashed out to buy this album on vinyl. Yes, they had a borrowed, androgenous, look which leant heavily on the New York Dolls, but they were entirely out of keeping with the times - a good thing in my view. AS prompted a 5 star review from "Sounds" Geoff Barton at the time. I followed them through all the changes, right to the end, because Japan never failed to provoke and challenge. Listen to this album and find out why.
