Song of the Day: "LIFE, LIFE"

Ryuichi Sakamoto released his first solo album in 8 years recently. One of the few tracks with vocals reunites him with David Sylvian. It lacks the ethereal brilliance of their earlier collaborations, possibly because the lyrics are a poem by Russian poet Arseny Tarkovsky (although it stands to reason that if it's a poem, it's by a poet; that he's Russian might have been clear from the name).

I was hoping for more of a "Madonna when she's produced by William Orbit" kind of thing.
