Japan - Tin Drum
Following on from the exceptional, Gentlemen Take Polaroids, Japan made another masterpiece that ended up being their last release. Talk about going out on a high! Tin Drum is another gorgeous album with a deep sense of mystery. The band all put in outstanding performances, especially Mick Karn's funky bass playing, David Sylvian's velvety voice and Steve Jensen's inspired rhythms. This is one of 2018's most essential reissues. Must play tracks -- The Art Of Parties, Ghosts and Visions Of China.
