Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Victim of Stars, 1982-2012 (Audio CD)
Unless you are familiar with David's first three solo albums from the 1980's, Brilliant Trees, Gone to Earth and Secrets of the Beehive, you should not hesitate to buy this for the eight tracks from those albums included here and let yourself be seduced into buying those albums themselves. Then you can regard the other tracks, including the four excellent Sakamoto collaborations and the more variable results of various Japan reincarnations, as the icing on the cake. Even if you have all the original singles and albums represented here, it is still interesting to see what has been omitted (e.g. Nostalgia from Brilliant Trees) and to hear the obligatory (for such compliations) new track, Where's Your Gravity?
