Review by colorofmoney91
2 stars Though the title of Synthesist 2010 sort of implies a return to the sound of Harald Grosskopf's classic debut album, that is not what is to be found here.

Like Grosskopf's previous album, the production on Synthesist 2010 is very well polished in the same way as most modern new age electronic recordings. Though the music itself is also strongly influenced by the new age electronic sound as found on Yeti Society, it seems to also be equally influenced by Grosskopf's classic propelling short- form Berlin school sound. Unfortunately, these two eras of Grosskopf's career do not mend together very well at all, and what results is a slightly more upbeat and percussive form of out of touch new age trance with pseudo-funky basslines, though much less trance-oriented while retaining the dance elements.

Also, like Yeti Society, no individual track stands out among the others. Every track works together to create an overly long yoga session soundtrack that seems to drag on forever. Any form of reasonable progression or individuality anywhere on this album is nowhere to be found.
