4 stars A good compilation of Synergy most accomplished works. The first part is especially worth the try, as it captures the first 3 albums : in particular two great tracks from Electronic Realizations For Rock Orchestra, Classical Gas, and the mini-cosmic-electronic epic Phobos and Deimos, which will take you in a galaxy far far away. One of Larry Fast's best pieces !

The second part is focused on the 80s' period, with tracks from Games. It also features tracks from one of my favorite Synergy album : Audion. Orbit 5 and Ancestors put you in deep space

This compilation is recommended for Synergy fans or to discover the band. I give 4 stars for the first disc and 3 stars for the second. Prepare your spaceship !

4 stars A solid 4 stars. I had this album as a young'n. I held it close for a time, and listened to it much. If you think about it, compilations are normally the pits; this compilation must be among the best. No matter you taste and opinion of the early material vs the latter, it is an excellent representation of what Fast did. Listening as I write to Slaughter on 10th at 4min30sec, I could not be happier to have ears.

Slightly more enthusiastic than reviewer Modrigue, this reviewer gives 4.1 stars to the first disc (5 and thereabouts is asking a lot from me) and 3.5 for the second. And that's close enough to 4 for me.
