Makoto Matsushita - First Light, 1981



Anthemic, sweeping, funky, and lush. This bass-slapping, orchestra-swooshing Japanese "city pop" album rides the slippery-sweet line of definite corniness. I included both album covers because they are both pretty slick. In fact, "slick" is probably the best adjective for this work....really really slick.
