Description

Amazing compilation double album that does a terrific job in putting Japan's '80s ambient scene in context. Tip!!The majority of the tracks feature either dreamy electronic sounds or a mixture of acoustic and electronic instrumentation, with nods to jazz coming thick and fast. There are naturally a couple of fairly well-known names on show, but for the most part the compilers have done a good job in highlight lesser-known tracks from unsung heroes. Check!
