Original 1st pressing of the 4th album released in 1981 by Yellow Magic Orchestra, formed in 1978 with Haruomi Hosono, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Yukihiro Takahashi. The live instrumentation, which had been withdrawn from use for some time, is now back in action, transforming the electronic new wave into an inorganic yet groovy combination of minimalist music techniques and industrial sounds. It is a pretty cool sound that, along with its predecessor "BGM", can be used on today's dance floors. “Taiso” also reveals a unique sense of comedy, foreshadowing the later release of “Uwaki Na Bokura”.
