4 stars Former Japan frontman third solo album. Robert Fripp and Mel Collins participate.

Very interesting experimental music. Mix of post-Japan synthesizers driven music with Crimsonian moments. Sylvian voice is cold, a bit androidal ( remind me Gary Numan voice, electronics sounds remind Gary Numan music as well!). Music is mid-tempo, based on dark ambient and post new romantics electronics beat. But in pplaces all this music is scented by Fripp frippertronics.

I believe, that the sound is to everyone taste. Someone will hate sinthesizer based rhythms ( remind new wave in a moments), slow "teasing" tempo, cold music and cold vocal. But all this basis is covered by Fripp guitar acrobatics and Mel Collins sax .

Very interesting album, not only for Fripp/KC maniacs, but for everyone, who has no allergy to experimental part of synthesizers post new wave.
