I like Solid State Survivor, BGM and Technodelic better than the pop stuff tho.
A lot of the solo stuff, side projects and collaborations, production for other artists, etc. is top notch too.
What makes Japan such a big hub for music? I see western artists having Japanese releases, going on tour in Japan, and of course the sheer amount of music that comes out of Japan
What makes them so important?
This album is fucking amazing. Holy shit.
World music influenced, meditative prog rock.
God tier band in general, that's not even their best album, this is.
>I like Solid State Survivor, BGM and Technodelic better than the pop stuff tho.
I love their whole discography. Seriously.

I will agree with you 100% there. Some people have already mentioned some artists in this thread that only came about thanks to either Hosono, Sakamoto, or Takahashi.
and I wish Sakamoto a full recovery! no fucking way he will be taken from this earth just yet.
it's funny you think that, because i think most of new music is pretty bad, and prefer the old, especially anything Sakamoto/Hosono/Takahashi did from 77-84.
Japan is (and was throughout the 20th century) the second-largest developed country in terms of population, behind the USA.
That their cultural output is significant shouldn't actually come as a surprise... but to tell the truth I haven't ever heard anyone acknowledge or quote this statistic before.
May as well share just incase. I found this on /mu/ maybe 2 or 3 years ago and i still listen to it almost daily.
I don't even listen to much Japanese music but this song man.
SUPERCAR - LUCKY
Recommended Japanese Music (version 41.00)
I really love Ghost's Hypnotic Underworld. It's possibly my favorite Japanese album ever. Do you know anything else I'd like based off it?
And not entirely related to the thread topic, but are there any non-Jap bands that had the same ideas going on?
ACO - Irony
This album is incredibly beautiful.
Kao=s - さくら
>Japanese folk / rock
Midori are overrated af tbh
This chart is hilariously bad and innacurate. Props for including Number Girl though, they don't get enough love everywhere.
This is actually pretty great. Japanese bargain bin core is so delicious.
