This album is clearly an emotional work for Ryuichi Sakamoto, and one that I hope is not the end of a career but rather a beginning of a new phase in this gifted artist's life. It is this quality, more so than any particular melody or specific track that keeps bringing me back for more, and adds additional layers of nuance each time that I listen to it. If async is any indication, Sakamoto still has plenty to offer and I for one look forward to seeing where he goes from here. Recommending this one.
