Japanese LP with Gatefold insert & Obi. Obi strip indicates that the LP came with a limited edition poster; however this was not packaged inside the LP sleeve it was supplied separately, rolled, so it is very rare to find copies with it. There were two posters allegedly supplied with this pressing; the first was a group shot (similar to the one on the lyric sheet), and a later one was of David Sylvian singing live.

Made in Japan by Victor Musical Industries, Inc. Licensed by Virgin Records Ltd, England.

Recorded at Air Studios and The Townhouse Studios, London.

This version comes with a different obi strip compared with Gentlemen Take Polaroids.

Like Quiet Life, Gentlemen Take Polaroids is a mainly electronic album characterised by the distinctive playing of its members, particularly Sylvian and Karn, but it is much moodier than its predecessor, with much of the pop and dance factors removed. The arrangements are much more intricate and dense, and the production is a lot slicker and cleaner for all these reasons the album has been compared to Low 1977 by David Bowie, whom Japan have cited as an influence on a number of occasions.

The glam influences still hung heavy, particularly from Roxy Music, but now the band found itself starting to affect others in turn.
