Review by Modrigue
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Best Selection captures great moments of Yellow Magic Orchestra during their golden period, between 1978 and 1981. The record is also a good way to discover the band as it is mainly composed of two parts : the first one is consecrated to punchy synth pop tracks from their first albums of the 70s, whereas the second part is dedicated to their darker 80s' cold wave pieces.

The tunes taken from YMO and Solid State Survivor are an excellent choice : energic Rydeen, enchanting Behind the Music, jazzy Cosmic Surfin', oriental pop Tong Poo and electronic classic Technopolis. They could difficultly begin the compilation better. The enchantment goes on with 1000 Knives and Taiso. The next song, Nice Age, sounds a little cheesy to me, but this inclusion is largely forgiven by the magnificient icy Key. There comes the oddest track of this disc, an electronic and rocky re-interpretation of The Beatles' Day Tripper ! The Talking Heads would have appreciated... Back to dark tunes with U-T and Seoul Music. The compilation ends with Cue, a beautiful ambient track typically 80s'.

Best Selection is the first best of compilation by Yellow Magic Orchestra and features some of their most accomplished pieces. Ideal to begin with this innovative band and for old school electronic music listeners !
