Cinematic soundtrack prowess times (x's) the genius musicality infinity cubed via Ryuichi Sakamoto and David Byrne's exceptional musical artistry. Plus, the peewee on the cover makes for compelling art. Side note: If you haven't seen this Bertolucci film classic, find it and watch it. Bertolucci's visualization of the story brings it powerfully to life, while the soundtrack adds an undeniable dimensionality. Stunning. Peace. - @daFigz™
