Sequencer was the second album from Synergy and was released a mere twelve months after the debut album in 1976. Again the album is an intriguing and sometimes unpredictable set of instrumentals putting Synergy and Larry Fast at the forefront of electronic keyboard led rock music. This re issue has been re mastered for this release and contains sleeve notes written by Larry Fast and will form part of a series of releases which will see the entire Synergy back catalogue released over the next twelve months.
Lyric sheet not included. . .and still no guitars

"After the promise of Electronic Realizations for Rock Orchestra the previous year, one would think that Sequencer would have been a comparatively impressive work. Unfortunately, this album is gravely disappointing compared to the first album. S-Scape, the first track, ends as soon as it starts to get good. Other tracks, like the wonderful Chateau and the cool Cybersports, are good short pieces but offer only a taste of the Synergy heard in ER. It just strikes me that Larry Fast may have been a bit short on material (or energy) at the time he created this album as the majority of the pieces on it are either covers of others' works or tone sequences. Only once the last track (Sequence) 17 gets going do you begin to hear the Synergy character that you wanted to hear more of when you bought the album.
Now don't get me wrong--there are tracks in here that are definitely worth listening to. It's not a bad album, but this is not the best that Synergy has to offer."
CLASSICAL ELECTRO FROM AN EARLY PIONEER

"LARRY FAST AT HIS MOST ACCESSABLE. "CHATEAU" IS A BAROQUE MASTERPIECE THAT BACH WOULD OF BEEN PROUD OF. REST OF CD PRETTY GOOD TOO. ANALOG AT ITS PEAK."
