Tin Drum is the fifth and final studio album by English band Japan, released in November 1981 by record label Virgin. It peaked at No. 12 on the UK charts, and featured the top 5 single "Ghosts. It has received acclaim as the band's best work. Tin Drum continued the band's now-established mix of electronic elements with traditional instrumentation, but leans far more towards Far Eastern and Orientialist influences than any of their previous albums

Tin Drum is the fifth and final studio album by British new wave band Japan. It is their most commercially successful studio album, peaking at on the UK albums chart. Following the departure of guitarist Rob Dean, Japan began to let more East Asian–particularly Chinese–influences seep into their music, and into Sylvian’s lyrics as well. The band started experimenting with all sorts of different Chinese-influenced synth and percussion sounds, as keyboardist Richard Barbieri recalled in 1994 to Sound on Sound: We took such care over each individual sound that we got quite paranoid about all.

Japan's 'Tin Drum' is undeniably hip. The musicality of this recording is nothing short of genius. It's clever, artsy and sophisticated. Sylvian's vox is intoxicating paired with Mick Karn's otherworldly bass playing and Steve Jansen's exotic drumming. My fav track is, hands down, 'Cantonese Boy' with its inventive phrasing and poppy beats. These cats made several classic Art Rock recordings in the 80. .

User reviews
Berkohi
This is a great sounding remaster. Really great. But my copy has clicks on Canton at the end of side one. Annoying, but there is a small line scratch right in the vinyl. That said, I also have the 2lp 45rpm edition, which sounds even better and is perfect. I highly recommend getting that, if you love this album as much as I do. It is an amazing experience!
Iell
I first got the single disc remaster of the album here in 2018, which sounds great, except my copy has a scratch on Canton which makes some click sounds on the track. So, I let myself do what I wanted to do at first and bought the 2lp 45rpm edition. It sounds so good! I am so glad I have it now. I did not let myself believe this would be worth the extra expense, but for an album like this, one of my favorites too, it elevates it to a new level. Perfect sounding. If you love Tin Drum I highly recommend the 2lp 45rpm edition.
Zolorn
Apart from boosted contrast of the front image and some increased sharpness (compared to an original), it's a flawless reissue. The sound is very reminiscent of my German copy from 81, maybe slightly more detailed. The original tape hiss is there, compared to a 2003 remaster that tried to eliminate it to some degree.No surface noise, and the disc is flat.All in all, I'm super happy with it.
Painwind
Does this version come with the WAV download card/code, thanks.
Fordg
Yes it does come with a WAV download code inside the sleeve
Tantil
The WAV downloads for this & Gentlemen Take Polaroids are 16/44.1.
Cordalas
Please note that the downloads are, in fact, the 2003 remasters, not this version.
Levaq
What resolution? 24 bit / 96 kHz, 16 bit / 44.1 kHz?
Kerry
Both this and Gentlemen Take Polaroids have WAV format downloads
Mallador
I believe this release will evoke lots of getting up to turn the records over...
Daigami
You'd obviously have a problem with 7" singles, with only 1 track on each side, then! Maybe vinyl isn't your thing?
Faulkree
all that turning the records over could be called an immersive experience- but i guess it's worth it - surely sounds awesome judging by a couple of other releases i own with half speed mastering
Fenritaur
sound quality of the pressing absolutely fantastic, everything is super clear and lovely, and the bass tones are funky and smooth. perfect pressing
Arlelond
Hey there to the 3 people who already say they have this; if you really do have it early can you comment on the sound quality. Cheers, would be much appreciated.
Gelgen
Some people do get pre-release copies for a variety of reasons......
Utchanat
I have it, and I submitted it. I haven't got time to listen it yet. I don't like packaging quality. Visually vinyls looks great. Pressed at Optimal.
Mogelv
Nobody has it yet, they just pre-ordered it like everyone else.
Samugor
The 'single version' of "The Art of Parties" is actually the 12" single version.
Swordsong
This may be a reissue but it sounds very good on my rega planar 5.
Kuve
If one ever imagined how "Japan" would sound - David Sylvian, Mick Karn, Steve Jansen and Richard Barbieri (minus Rob Dean, who left the group at this point) did their best to provide with a weirdly beautiful provocative audio-postcard from China, confronting the modern and the traditional into one damn great, ethnically funky cocktail of sounds, in stark contrast to the karaoke-machines and expensive automated hi-gloss production of the workaholic country their name so implies on.
Dikus
Finding an obscure Synth-Pop is deeply rewarding. It's a sensation felt when an LP such as 'Tin Drum', 'B-2 Unit' or 'Logic System' fall into your hands. Probably for the whole aesthetic concept, the Synth timbres, the melodies & surrounding atmospheric chords, the instruments interaction with vocals, and, most of all, that ability to embrace with identity the introspectiveness & the infectious dancing sides.
Uste
Trivia - most copies don't have the sticker because this release used the CD master not the analogue master. The original tapes were missing at the time so were unavailable for this pressing.
