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.

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
