Roger Powell biography
Roger Powell has deep roots in the history of synthesizers. As a one time protege of Robert Moog, and then a synth designer for Arp, and more recently a programmer for Apple, Powell has always been at the forefront in the development of synthesizers and audio software. He even developed one of the first PC MIDI sequencers. His first solo album was released in 1973 on Atlantic records, and from there he soon became a member of Todd Rundgren's band, Utopia. While in that band, he created the first hand-held polyphonic synthesizer.
After a break from performing, Powell has in recent years returned to recording and performing live.

3 stars Roger Powell's second solo album was released in 1980, just as Utopia was completing their metamorphosis from a prog outfit to a power pop group. And this album shows us that Powell was a willing participant in that change.

The first side of the album is dominated by three power pop ballads, Landmark, Windows (which also appeared on a Utopia album) and the fantastic Emergency Splashdown. While this album side is good, there is just too much of what Utopia was becoming at the time.

Side 2 of the LP is more like I was hoping for. It's full of beautiful keyboard work, amazing sounds and progressive compositions. If the entire album was like this it would have earned a much higher rating.

Review by Evolver

4 stars Roger Powell should be well known to those who love synthesizers. He was a protege of Bob Moog, went on to become a programmer for Arp, and even developed one of the first (if not THE first) portable synthesizers for moving about on stage (Jan Hammer fans most likely saw one of Powell's keyboards in use).

This album was the first of Powell's all too infrequent solo albums. Released in 1973 on the once proud Atlantic Records label, it showcases Powell playing in a style somewhat different than what his fans who know him from his work with Todd Rundgren and Utopia may be used to.

The underlying style, not surprising considering the year it was produced, is similar to what Tangerine Dream was doing at the time, mostly hypnotic swirling synthesized rhythm tracks, with solos on top. But it's in the solos that Powell stands out. He was able, long before the use of samplers, to capture the spirit of guitar and saxophone solos, creating a recognizable sound, while also retaining much of the keyboard feeling as well. I presume this may have had something to do with Rundgren signing him on two years later hor the Utopia project.

I must say that this album has become one of my favorite electronic albums since the day I found it in a record store. I see that it has been released on CD. I must upgrade my copy.
