Not exactly a, outstanding Album,...lacks strong emotions and romance, but nevertheless it has satisfying tracks, happy melodies and a good soundtrack to listen while Reading a sci-fi book.

It's difficult to take this album seriously. It never got a European release and seems to have just been made for the J-pop market which were opening their arms to Ferry at this time. That's not to say it's J-pop though. More just generic '99-style Ferry Corsten tracks, that overloaded JP-8000 sound but spun out into an entire album that doesn't bother trying to do anything else. A few of the tracks have poppy vocal hooks, but which completely lack the sort of 'classic' potential of 'System F - Cry' and some of his other more successful efforts. 'Dance Valley Theme 2001' sounds a bit out of place, and 'Ligaya' is completely inappropriate because it's such a cut above the rest. 'Spaceman' got a single release in '03, and it's definitely one of the better on the album. 'Reaching Your Soul' is similar in value but has a dark edge, which is quite nice, but it's still a bit poorly executed. The rest is completely forgettable. Sounds like he banged it out in a week, maybe to get this style finally out of his system. The other way of looking at this album is that it's like the dregs of his '99-era success, the ones that shouldn't probably ever have seen the light of day but unfortunately did.

'Together' is something of a hit-and-miss release from System F, showcasing both the positive and the negative aspects of Ferry Corsten's synth-powered sound. Tracks such as 'The Sonnet', 'Ignition, Sequence, Start!' and personal favourite 'Pegasus' are offset by some rather ordinary efforts. The 'Ligaya' bonus track (from the 'Gouryella' alias) is considerably stronger without the female vocals, whilst album closer 'Spread Your Wings' leaves the listener with the feeling that there was more to come from this album when it reaches its conclusion. Disappointingly, the tracks are all edits of the original versions, which is frustrating as the full-length versions of tracks such as 'Spaceman' are particularly strong. Nevertheless, some high-quality tracks on display here and a demonstration of a desire to diversify in terms of sound with the beautiful 'Savannah'. There are numerous superior System F releases around, but well worth a thorough listen nonetheless.

Not very elaborate tracks on the whole, but very catchy. "Together" is a nice follow-up for "Out Of The Blue", "Ligaya" is a great trancer as we all know and "The Sonnet" may be the catchiest system F-track ever. Also recommended for booming the room : QRious, Savannah, Solarize, Ignition Sequence Start, Deja vu and dance-minded Spread Your Wings.
