Yellow Magic Orchestra

I listened to the first Yellow Magic Orchestra record today and went looking on-line for information about it. I found this site which made me do a double take. Pretty weird.

The music on those records is effing weird. The conventional wisdom is that YMO, along with Kraftwerk, were originators of synth-pop. Sure. But this album is kinda cheesy. Wait, really cheesy, loungy ... not actively unpleasant, but compared with the way early kraftwerk sounds today, it's pretty weak beer.
