4 stars This is melodramatic electronic music, some kind of sequenced new age that keeps the listener alert instead of relaxing him. The style is a mix of early Synergy (Larry fast), Jean- Michel Jarre and the Tangerine Dream of the mid 70's. Actually most of this record sounds like Ricochet (Tangerine dream). The difference is that Froese's guitar gives Ricochet a more rock dimension to the electronic ensemble. For those who do not know Ricochet, let's say that here there is an omnipresent bass synthesizer beat (sequencer) that changes its pattern occasionally, there are higher keyboards notes that make a certain melody, and there are floating keyboards to complete the ensemble. Those 3 layers do not necessarily play together simultaneously: indeed the sequenced beat can start later after the beginning of the piece. The record is not symphonic, like it is the case for the first Synergy album.
