4 stars I'm writing this review just as a way to pass on something I read at the time this came out. I believe it was in Tower Records' magazine Pulse!, and it reported that David Sylvian had gone back in the studio after the album was supposedly finished, and drastically altered the final mix. He apparently took the other Japan members' parts, deleting or heavily processing them, without their knowledge. According to the article, which was very short, the other three were very upset, and no longer wanted to have anything to do with Sylvian. Of course, that was over 10 years ago, so things may have changed. When I listen to "New Moon at Red Deer Wallow", it seems obvious that the track was radically altered. As it happens, I really love that track, and played it for my fellow Electroacoustic Music composers a few years ago. Of course, XTC did something similar in the early 80's with their dub experiments. Other songs on the album were left alone, apparently. Anyway, it's as good as a lot of Sylvian's solo work, but you probably already know that.
