From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Chords is one release of a natural progression of improvement and increasingly more complex experimental projects. Chords is still fresh and imaginative. Each composition is inventive and exciting. To better understand and appreciate Larry Fast's Synergy project, specifically Chords, a few general remarks are in order. Larry Fast's electronic compositions are not and never were "New Age" music. He is one of many fine pioneers in electronic synthesizer music. Larry has worked with numerous progressive rock musician greats, notably Rick Wakeman & Peter Gabriel, as his biography (available through this website) states. A good listener can appreciate the experimental nature of Fast's work. The most likely reason Synergy gets categorized incorrectly is likely due to a relative narrowness and ignorance of newer and newer marketing teams about what the music is all about; a kind of mistake anyone can make, except younger people can be temporally provincial in their judgments and may not do much homework. There is often no substitute for being there when it was happening. Another victim that comes to mind: site works from Tangerine Dream out of the 70's. It is also difficult to resist the temptation to extend the hypothesis that perhaps the record company many have simply tried to sift through their "old" recordings, looking for something to remarket to a possibly na´ve consumer niche. In any case, it is probably too hopeful to expect many of today's CD stores to really understand all their wares, except those that attract the most attention. An old story.
