P-MODEL - IN A MODEL ROOM, 1979 (256kbps)

P-MODEL, helmed by Susumu Hirasawa, was one of Japan's most influental electronic pop groups. This is their debut album filled with, in lack of a better word, quirky electro pop. POLISYCS is basically an updated copy of early P-MODEL all the way down to the matching costumes. The track 偉大なる頭脳 got covered by POLYSICS on their 2007 album Karate House. You can read a full review of this album over at Jrawk.

Named 52nd (Rolling Stone Japan) and 17th (Takarajima) Greatest Japanese Rock Album of All Time. Instead of transliterating the track list I've provided the English track names as they are written on the album cover.
