2007 collaboration between Ryuichi Sakamoto, formerly of Yellow Magic Orchestra and worldwide laptop guru Fennesz. The impact and importance of this recording is difficult to overstate. Christian Fennesz is far and away the standard- bearer of laptop music, his thawed sound of fractured guitar chords and warm noise melts hearts around the world. Ryuichi Sakamoto, meanwhile, a contributing force in Electronic music for almost three decades in Yellow Magic Orchestra and his vast solo oeuvre, takes his place on laptop next to Fennesz for this historic meeting. Anyone concerned with the future of sound, or interested in modern music composition, or anyone who simply enjoys sweet ambient music should welcome this brilliant music from brilliant talents... towards a more brilliant world. Touch.

I have no idea why Pitchfork would refer to Music For Airports but I do think that The Pearl by Eno and Harold Budd is a comparison. Like that record, this is music which really plumbs the sonorities of the piano.
In response to the reviewer above, while Vrioon is pretty awesome, I would say Revep is a bit of a snooze and lacking in inspiration.
Nice cover too.
To fans and non-fans of this album, I recommend you get your buttskies to the record shot and get a hold of Sakamoto + Noto's albums , 'Vrioon', 'Insen' and 'Re-vep', if you want to see the true field of tension between electronic and non-electronic instruments.
