Japan's best album. Quiet life, is a brilliant combination of glam rock, new romanticism, and, electro pop, and still sounds excellent today. Shades of Bowie and Roxy music on an album that includes, fall in love with me, other side of life, and a cover of The Velvet Underground classic, all tomorrow's parties. Still sounds like music of the future.
