5 stars This record is a perfect exhibition of structured & futuristic keyboards arrangements in a melodic, catchy & contemporary classical manner. There are TONS of miscellaneous keyboards producing VERY melodic, symphonic and fluid classical textures; even the sequencers are melodic and never sound repetitive! The tracks are REALLY progressive and amazingly CATCHY. The whole album can easily be uninterruptedly listened. For 1975, the musical genre of this masterpiece was a real breakthrough. The comparison with Tomita is inevitable: Larry Fast is much more structured and serious here, and his tracks form a denser texture, also being less nervous and childish. However, the 2 keyboardists' instruments are quite comparable. The keyboards amazingly emulate miscellaneous instruments: oboe, violins, flutes, trumpets and bells, among others. The amateurs of floating mellotron should not be disappointed here. The fast symphonic part near the end of "Warriors" sounds a bit like on the Wendy Carlos' "Clockwork orange" album. Only the "Synergy" track is less catchy, sounding more futuristic than symphonic. This record is definitely the Synergy's best record.
