I don't know how I missed picking this up before... Click Here.
If you see it, get it. It's pretty good. I think it's better than 3 stars, but who am I to argue with AllMusic.com.
The track Swamp would make pretty cool entrance music for someone.
Also, on a side note, David Sylvian is featured on one of the tracks... I have some a track by him that I really like (Godman) but I haven't heard anything else he has done. Anyone have anything by him? Is his older stuff really better than his newer stuff (again, going off of AllMusic review)

David Sylvian's stuff is all kind of the same, so if you like one thing chances are you'll like it all, because it's really his voice that makes it. Maybe Allmusic thinks his newer stuff is more floaty and adult and polished and less whiny or something, I dunno. If you hang out with Ryuichi Sakamoto long enough, that's what will happen! It's all good. Of course I'm fairly certain I have Dead Bees on Cake somewhere in this house and have never listened to it. Secrets of the Beehive is quite nice and "Forbidden Colours" is awesome and awesome.
All of Japan's stuff is outstanding if you can handle really glammy gothy new wave. Gentlemen Take Polaroids and Tin Drum I'd most highly recommend.

Didn't like this album at all. Vrenna was part of the lame Nine Inch Nails (actually, I think everything after Pretty Hate Machine sucked). David Sylvian, on the other hand, is brilliant. Check out his work with King Crimson's Robert Fripp, just amazing.

From that review:
"Similar/Related Albums: Crowded House: Temple of Low Men Black Sabbath: Heaven & Hell"
How in God's name does that help me? I try and wrap my mind around it and ... just ... can't ... succeed ... It's like some Buddhist paradox that will bring enlightenment. "The sound of one hand clapping. The butterfly who lifts the elephant. Neil Finn and Tommy Iommi jamming together on stage."
