Gentlemen Take Polaroids is the fourth and penultimate studio album by the English band Japan, released on 24 October 1980 by Virgin Records. The album was preceded by the release of the title track as a single, which peaked at number 60 in the UK Singles Chart. The album was moderately successful, peaking at number 51. Gentlemen Take Polaroids was the band's first album for the Virgin Records label, after leaving Hansa-Ariola who had released their first three albums. It continued in the vein of. At the time of Gentlemen Take Polaroids release in November 1980, Japan were widely considered to be a joke. Japans current sound is one long, diffuse outtake from Roxy Musics Flesh And Blood, reckoned the NME. The group had always worn their influences on their sleeves and were the epitome of a group whod grown up in public. Their first two albums sounded like the aural equivalent of adolescent photo-booth strips: naïve, gawky and fuelled by misplaced hormones. Japan - Gentlemen Take Polaroids 1980.

Japan - My New Career. The last album with Rob Dean, Gentlemen Take Polaroids was also unquestionably the album in which Japan truly found its own unique voice and aesthetic approach. The glam influences still hung heavy, particularly from Roxy Music, but now the band found itself starting to affect others in turn. Even the back cover photo says as much - looking cool in glossy, elegant nightwear, the quintet had a clear impact on Duran Duran, to the point where Nick Rhodes obviously was trying to be Sylvian in appearance.

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. Gentlemen Take Polaroids' was Japan's first classic album and one that left the comparisons to Roxy Music in the dust, it's my favourite album of theirs, though 1981's Tin Drum' is almost as great. Its influence would be felt over the next few years, especially in the form of the commercially successful Duran Duran, who would fuse its sound with a more conventional rock sound.
