Sincronia — Odisea del Tiempo Eterno
(Opcion Sonica OPCD-003, 1993, CD)
by Mike McLatchey, Published 1995-07-01
I'm not much for programmed synths and drums in a classical rock/symphonic format, and there seems to be a lot of these coming out. Our dear Editor requested that I review this album with full knowledge of its synthetic nature and over time I procrastinated and procrastinated. Sincronia's electronic blend reminds me of Vangelis at its quieter moments, a bit of Genesis at its more symphonic points and even moves on to more avant realms like Opus Avantra or Pierrot Lunaire. For an almost completely computer controlled album, there's a lot of diversity here moving from symphonic rock to abstract neo-classical. It's practically too robotic for its own good, in my opinion – those who aren't so annoyed by digital everything may find this more palatable than I (Hey Peter I listened to it!).
