2 stars I've listened this album so many times in this month and now i think i'm ready to review it! First of all this album s quite disappointing to me! I have to say that Synchestra is the demonstration that Mr. Townsend is a good composer but unable to renew himself! Infact here there are some good compositions but nowadays it's impossible to be astonished by that because it's always the same thing that started with Oceanmachine! The acoustic passages are probably the best part of the album and particulary the opening "Let it roll" was a little bit surprising to me but songs like "Triumph" and "Vampira" becomes quickly boring. "Vampira" is a quite funny tunes but after two listenings it becomes tedious!!! Anyway the production is absolutely excellent and the musicians ability and performance is superb (as in every Townsend's album!). Even if i'm disappointed this is not a bad album but if you don't know anything of HevyDevy please start from his true masterpiece "Terria" or from anpother great album that is "Accelerated evolution" if you like those ones very very much so give a chanche also to this "Synchestra"... 2 stars Collectors/fans only!
