That Japan's breakthrough record 'Quiet Life' was released in both 1979 and 1980 is uniquely fitting for a band who were about to step out of the glam rock, post-punk shadows of the late '70s and deliver an as yet genre-less record that would come to define the '80s. 'Quiet Life' was the third, final and most successful release on the Hansa Records label. A forerunner for the alternative/new wave sound of the new decade, the album would become one of the great classic British albums.
