Contains a lot of Sakamoto classics like a soundtrack piece from "The Last Emperor" and Neo Geo, all within a collection featuring a creative sequence that goes from one different genre to another. There is some new work that is particularly strong, like the driving house-influenced "Anger - Rare Force 2 Meg Mix" and the calm (yet tense) Bossa Nova / Alva Noto mix, "Insensatez", that finishes the CD. The five videos on the accompanying disc are well-done and show Sakamoto at different stages of his career, including a precious early live performance of "Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence". Since Sakamoto has too much tremendous work to fit on one compilation CD, it's not surprising that a lot of significant work is left out, like anything from what I consider his best CD, "Smoochy", and the best song from his "BTTB" CD - "Aqua". But that's more of a compliment. I thoroughly enjoy "Moto.Tronic".Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
