3 stars "Cords" is a cold symphonic New Age album. It contains VERY artificial electronic keyboards! It sounds like if you are in front of a contemporary music orchestra that plays for you classical moods, but the difference is that everything is pure keyboards, giving an extremely cold atmosphere...Brrrrrrr! My vinylic record is translucid white and it gives me the feeling that I hold an ice plate while listening to it! It sounds a bit like Tomita minus the clinical sounds, but at least Tomita is able to be funny and warm.

The tracks are fully loaded of dynamic keyboards, and, when played loud, it gives you a pretty scary feeling! Larry Fast here is still very symphonic, but the airs do not enough retain my attention, maybe because there are too many experimental elements included and also because he definitely removed most of the melodic sequencers he used to play on the previous records. This album is not for the timid who likes quiet, delicate & mellow songs.

Rating: 3.5 stars
