4 stars The only album of Estonian band contains interesting mix of live guitar and percussion sound mixed with many synth/keys/electronic effects. Surprisingly, the music isn't too commercial, and possibly has some similarity with later Yes works.

Band's roots are in late 70-s, but early materials were never released. Synopsis was disbanded for some years, and re-formed in mid 80-s. They still saved heavy guitar solos, some drumming and many jazz rock elements from their early period, but new electronic sounds are filled bigger part of their music now. Happily, all keyboards and synthesizers used sound very competent, and never gave synth-pop feeling ( what is big progress for mid 80-s). Band's music ,even being mellow, melodic and easy accessible, still saved high musical standard.

This music possibly could be interesting to fans of later Yes and symphonic prog bands with strong synth element in their music. Surprisingly, this album could be placed between better works of this genre.

Really 3,5.
