4 stars Technodelic is maybe the last good album by Yellow Magic Orchestra. It features mostly very original and unique compositions, but also some strange and rather lazy moments. Away from the band's first acts in the vein of a joyful Kraftwerk, the music is much more cold wave oriented, with japanese feel and experimental soundscapes...

The record opens with the enchanting Pure Jam, an enjoyable kind of ambient-electronic- oriental song. Neue Tanz and Stairs begin good, but become both a bit repetitive. It goes better with the curious percussions of Seoul Music, the trippy piano of Light in Darkness and the catchy vocals of Taiso. The next track, Gradated Gray, is very strange and difficult to enter into. Then comes the highlight song of the disc, Key, a catchy and icy tune. Very unique and efficient, this shirt tune is deep and mystical ! The album concludes with the atmospherical instrumentals Prologue and Epilogue, very relaxing and floating.

With this release, the japanese band offers unbelievable magic soundscapes. Even more surprising when knowing the 70s' songs from the same band. Technodelic is definitely apart from other electronic and synth pop acts. A true trip into an unknown temple, full of mysteries and strange corridors. Recommended for ambient music lovers !

4 stars Famed for its pioneering use of samples and loops to construct music years before it became a commonplace practice, Yellow Magic Orchestra's fifth album, Technodelic sounds amazingly ahead of its time, with some sections that sound like they could have come out on the latest album by M83 or some other electronically-inclined indie/post-rock act instead of a thirty year old album. With a catchy, compelling beat and a faster pace than a lot of other electronic music at the time, it's no surprise that as well as being a synthpop/electro-rock classic the album would also exert a significance influence over the dance music scene.

3 stars The intro tune 'Pure Jam' sounds remarkably similar to the Sylvian / Sakamoto ep. 'Bamboo Music' - but with vocals which are almost identical to Steve Strange from 'Visage'. This is an excellent, mostly electronic upbeat album that runs parallel with 'Japan's' - 'Tin Drum' - but is more synthe ... (read more)

4 stars I'll just like to keep this short. Yellow Magic Orchestra (YMO) is a very difficult band to "get into", half novelty, half great electronic pioneers; this album without a doubt is great electronic music. I can only truly suggest 3 YMO albums (their self titled, BGM and this one), the others ar ... (read more)

5 stars I listen to many different music styles, but this one really got to me. Almost architectual music mixed with ethnic instruments. This is the "Pet Sounds"/"Sgt. Pepper" for Japan. It is YMO at his highlight and has a quaint feeling about it. You will find the Ramayana (tradit. asian singing) mixe ... (read more)
