Yukihiro Takahashi / 高橋幸宏 – Neuromantic / ニウロマンティック
Label: Alfa – ALR-28018
Format: Vinyl, LP, Album
Released: 24 May 1981
Style: New Wave, Synth-pop
Another Japanese classic to emerge from the sprawling YMO-related sphere with Yukihiro Takahashi's Neuromantic. The whole thing is pretty flawless from start to finish, with that kinda-dated-but-still-timeless 80's bubble-era optimism that's very much in vogue right now. Containing the killer sentimental synth-pop beaut 'Drip Dry Eyes' but also don't miss the leftfield proto-chugga 'New (Red) Roses)'. (Pristine Copy / With OBI + Insert).
