YMO - BGM mp3 album

BGM is the fourth studio album by Yellow Magic Orchestra, released on March 21, 1981. The title stands for "Background music". This album was produced by Haruomi Hosono. Recording started on January 15, 1981, in an effort to release the album by March 21, 1981. YMO was the first band to use the Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer, one of the first programmable drum machines, as early as 1980. This was their first studio album recorded with the Roland MC-4 Microcomposer and TR-808.

comentando BGM, LP, Album, ALR-28015. BGM is where YMO grows up. Earlier releases were full of hyperactive silliness and simplistic melodies, and frankly have not stood the test of time. But BGM has a depth those records lack: a fuller sound and a more melancholy feel, thanks no doubt to the slower tempos and minor key arrangements being used.

BGM is the fourth studio album by Yellow Magic Orchestra, released on March 21, 1981. BGM. Studio album by. Yellow Magic Orchestra.

The highlight of YMO (Yellow Magic Orchestra), introduced by their 1981 BGM album.

BGM - Студийный альбом от Yellow Magic Orchestra. Вышел 21 марта 1981г. В альбом вошло 10 треков. Продолжительность альбома: 47:09. 1000 KNIVES - YMO 1979 LIVE at THE GREEK THEATRE. 1000 Knives - Yellow Magic Orchestra. Yellow Magic Orchestra 1000 knives (Studio version from BGM).

But if you are hardcore techno fan you should have this album. When they were releasing their album under A&M records, they asked them to "God sake! make something commercial and catchy, so we can make some money!" LOL, I am glad they didn't. Art Noveau, 01/31/2014. I have to wonder how many Western people have ever heard of YMO, especially their dark wave period (This album and the even better Technodelic). This is one of the best electronic groups I have ever heard.

Technodelic is the fifth studio album by Yellow Magic Orchestra, released in 1981. The album is notable for its experimental and heavy use of digital samplers which were not commonly used until the mid-to-late 1980s, resulting in a more minimalist sound compared to their previous work. It is considered the first released album to feature mostly samples and loops, influencing the heavy use of sampling and looping in popular music

BGM" is the third album by Yellow Magic Orchestra. The title stands for "background music", though promotional material indicates that it could also mean "Beautiful Grotesque Music". The album was produced by Haruomi Hosono. Like most YMO albums, song titles were printed in both Japanese and English, as listed below. 来たるべきもの" more accurately translates to "Forthcoming Power".
