5 stars Very inspirational that Greenback reviewed Synergy (AKA Larry Fast) albums, this innovative music musician certainly deserves a place on Prog Archives. For those who have the opinion that electronic instruments don't evoke emotion, listen to Larry Fast on Peter Gabriel his wonderful and emotional composition "Biko", what a compelling keyboard sound, almost tearjerking!

This re-issued and re-mastered CD release (originally a LP from 1975) sounds great, for me it's one of the highlights of electronic music, along with some Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze albums. Larry Fast uses among other things a Minimoog, an Oberheim Expander Module, a Mellotron M400 (that 'white furniture'), an Oberheim DS-2 Digital Sequencer and a Musictronics Phase Shifter. The music alternates from classically inspired (a bit similar to The Enid) featuring a wide range of classical instruments (played by the keyboards) to mid-tempo electronic rock (exciting fat synthesizer flights) and spacey electronic with a very lush sound (wonderful soaring strings). The track "Synergy" is a very spectacular one (with hints from Vangelis) delivering a bombastic atmosphere with a sensational sequencer sound and flashy synthesizer runs.

A MASTERPIECE, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ALL ELECTRONIC MUSIC AFICIONADOS!!
