"A Tribute to Ryuichi Sakamoto – To the Moon and Back becomes melancholic. The album compiles reworked tracks from the likes of David Sylvain, Alva Noto and other Sakamoto collaborators as well as talents that the Oscar and BAFTA-winner influenced like Thundercat and Devonté Hynes. Although the tracklist pulls from his vast catalog and comes from different artists from different decades, there’s a bond between them. Sakamoto’s traces appear throughout the reworkings, from the most audacious to the least transgressive, not only retaining as much consistency as one could in a project of this nature but keeping the focus squarely on him. It is, after all, A Tribute to Ryuichi Sakamoto, and nobody attempts to steal his spotlight.
The interesting note is that Sakamoto was never a spotlight-grabbing composer, especially in the past several decades. His work crept away from Thousand Knives and B-2 Unit’s attention-snatching immediacy into more evocative works. Most of A Tribute to Ryuichi Sakamoto – To the Moon and Back keeps his classy yet bashful palette. For instance, the Hildur Guðnadóttir-fronted “World Citizen I Won’t be Disappointed” reworks the original into a piece that’d fit alongside Sakamoto’s later compositions, eschewing rhythm for space."
