referencing The Synthesizer Sound Machine 2, LP, Album, 9063

This LP was released heading into the tail end of the Moog LP fad. Moog LP's from 1973 onwards tended to involve a band often with only a poorly selected single Moog melody line over the top. This LP is better than that. While it does involve a backing band, and imho too much lead guitar, the choices of Moog sound usually work well, and the arrangement is often more complex than a single Moog line. There are some strange tempo changes, which is both a plus and a minus. Often these seem out of place, but experimentation is good and variety is the spice of life. The sound quality of the recording isn't exceptional, but it is acceptable.
