''Throughout his artistic career, Sakamoto has collaborated with David Bowie, David Sylvian, dramatist Robert Wilson, author William S Burroughs, His Holiness The Dalai Lama and more recently with electronic artists Alva Noto, Christian Fennesz, Christopher Willits, and Taylor Deupree. Sakamoto also wrote music for the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona and the 400th anniversary of the city of Mannheim, Germany and his stirring film opus includes Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence, Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor, Little Buddha and The Sheltering Sky, Almodóvar’s High Heels, Brian De Palma’s Snake Eyes and Femme fatale, Iñárritu’s Babel and The Revenant.
Those that love to collect soundtracks are bound to have at least a handful of Ryuichi Sakamoto's scores in their music libraries. His work is subtle and beautiful, melancholic and incredibly soothing. So, for those who don't own any of his work, this album acts as the perfect introduction to the legendary composer. If you don't buy at least a couple of albums on the back of these highlights, then you're missing out on some incredible music.
From the subtle 'Acceptance' from Little Buddha, to the heart wrenchingly beautiful 'Main Theme' from The Sheltering Sky, not only is this a wonderfully diverse look into the world of Sakamoto, but it also an impressively performed and conducted collection of stunning music.
The 'Main Theme' from The Sheltering Sky is so obviously a homage to the great Bernard Herrmann's work, while the music for Little Buddha is very similar to John Williams's score for Schindler's List. Both films were released in 1993.'' (ReviewGraveyard)
