today you would just go and install cubase, take some plugins of vintage synth emulations, download the midi files and do a remake. but at the end of the 80ies there wasn't such a thing, that means the producers back then must have had a pretty nice collection of what nowadays is called 'vintage synthesizers'. :-) the sound is nevertheless pretty close to the original. skilled sound designers imo. today i would call this 'preset hopping', as these sounds became a kind of standard. this album to me is like a time machine back straight to the end of the 80ies.

I have to disagree with the previous poster.
The covers done by Ed Starink are done in an excellent way. To me, he really got the feeling of all these tracks are made them sound fuller and warmer. Of course, all credits go out to the original composers. No doubt about that.
Ed and Arcade chose popular tracks that appeal to the masses. You can't blame them. It had to sell. And it did.
This is where my love for electronic music started.

A few weeks ago, me and a few friends who are all very much into electronic music found out that for all of us it started with this album because it was so well advertised we all bought it in our younger years. And of course we all bought the original versions later.

The point is of course that, though it are indeed inferiour versions of great originals, the album was very popular at the time. That way it influenced a whole new generation of future musicians and consumers of electronic music, making the album relevant despite it is only cover versions.

This is quite a disappointing CD for two reasons: Firstly, it is all pieces re-performed (by Ed Starink, presumably) on 'modern' equipment, and is noticeably inferior to the originals. Secondly, it's rather biased in its sources, concentrating on the well known pieces but missing out on some of the more original synthesiser pieces - Tangerine Dream, Robert Moog and Brian Eno spring to mind... I recommend not buying this CD (if only I'd known when I bought it...)

Please note that this record and most other of its kind (instrumental synthesizer compilations) are COVER VERSIONS that while they try to stay true to the original actually butcher the songs because production is such an important part of this kind of music. So in one line: don't buy this crap, buy the original recordings instead!
