In my opinion, Starforce 1 is a great attempt at something really phenomenal. For the first time in history (that I know of), this very underground and secretive vinyl pressing has combined synth pop with ambient. The result? Nothing too unique or special, but a good listen otherwise.

I found after the first five or so tracks that this album would be alot better if the pads and synth lines were smoother and flowed more. These tracks have all of the chracteristics of a typical synthpop track, i.e. boring sounds, but very interesting ideas! All of the pads and textures used in this album didn't sound like they were modified too much, but the melodies and soundscapes created with them are quite neat.

Overall, a good listen but nothing more than a three. Upon looking back at it, the entire recording reminded me of some sort of neon color.
