Japan’s masterpiece

1980’s Gentlemen Take Polaroids is where Japan delivered their best tunes. Atmospheric at it’s best, this album would also serve as a blueprint for David Sylvian’s avant grade solo outings in the coming years.


Best early 80's alt rock

I bought this album on vinyl when it came out. I literally wore it out listening to it over and over. This is the progenesis of alternative at the turn of the decade. So many other bands copied their style and sound. That is often the problem with being first, others capitalize on your talent and sound with greater result. Don't worry though, you will hear the beginnings of so many great songs in this album.
