Exitentialism The Beatniks. I was only eleven years old when this album came out in Japan. Yellow Magic Orchestra was really big in Japan at that time. Yukihito Takahashi was a very busy man at the year, he did made a solo album, two albums with YMO, produced so many artists and this unit called "The Beatniks" with front man from the band called "Moonriders". for me this album never gets old. They are still making music together here and there. More By The Beatniks.

The oddly named "Exitentialism" (yes, ExiTENtialism. don't ask me!) is, to be sure, a bit tilted in the YMO direction. The CD bonus track, "River in the Ocean," is enjoyable, but more as a Takahashi solo track than a Beatniks track. It doesn't really sound like it belongs on the album. And I should definitely mention that the English/French lyrics remain interesting throughout, no-doubt thanks to the influence of the usual crew of YMO English lyricists. Verdict: "Exitentialism" is a genuinely odd experience, and in its strangeness is probably a bit more of a "difficult" listen than the contemporary albums by YMO and the Moonriders.
