About Court In The Act.

No albums are hosted here. All files must be deleted 24 hours after download, as they are for review and criticism purposes only - provided you follow this guideline, downloading from Court In The Act is legal as per s30(1) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. If any copyright holder has a problem with their material being posted here, get in touch and I will remove it. Let me know if any links are broken, I'll remove the post to prevent future annoyance, and will attempt to re-upload the file.

Comments make our work worthwhile. If you really enjoyed an album, tell us about it, we'd love to hear from you. If you hated it, tell us why.

Although music is a major part of all of our lives, we all have some form of external life. If there are periods in which no posts are added, I'm sorry, but that's how things happen. Even though I love blogging like this, sometimes I can't muster up the desire within myself to write about yet another album.

I'd like to say too that Court In The Act will never be run for personal profit. This means no advertisement, no premium schemes, and no LinkBucks. Megaupload is used because it strikes a fair balance between ease of upload and ease of download.

Japan - Quiet Life [1979]

Right, Joe is gone for now so i'll take this opportunity to post some new wave (YES)

Well for those who don't know I really, REALLY like David Sylvian's voice and this is the first album he's on that his trademark singing style is first used. Concerning the other instruments do not expect too much (after all this music is still very new-wave in style) but the bass is worth a mention as Mick Karn has an interesting self-taught style which can be seen most clearly in the intro for "In Vogue". The only instrument that is pretty much non-existent is the guitar as, bar some parts on the title track and a few other places , it's mostly absent (the guitarist left after this album 'cause he was doing fuck all)

The songs themselves are all pretty much top notch (in my view) and is overall a more brooding album and is the start of the bands creative work (later Japan albums), the future work of David's solo work (which I will probably end up posting later) and Richard Barbieri (the keyboard player) who has been member of Porcupine Tree since 1993.

All in all this slighty arty New Wave album is a great album with great songs I do hope you agree.

(btw don't get too excited about the bonus tracks, only one is a new track the rest are single versions)
