Right. Busy Lady has just wet her knick-knacks over the list of this chap's expensive synths. His synths are so amazing & sought-after that he probably keeps them in a titanium lined nuclear bunker deep in a forest. Where currently he doodles around and builds authentic homages to Jean Michel-Jarre, the only 70's synth pioneer it's not actually cool to like. Because he was French & not German. And had supermodel birds & a ludicrously expensive & reasonably pointless light show. So he was kind of about as likely to be trendy as post Syd Barrett Pink Floyd. Now that has all changed because Mr. Moore & his Zombi side project is pretty darn cool. All the chinnies like him. He appeals to the kosmische crew & the Italo disco bods & the dystopian electro faithful. I can imagine Boards of Canada fans liking some of this. I find mesen a little perturbed by the Oxygene-like presets throughout but this is a very lushly, lovingly produced slab o' wax. And it's got probably one of the best icy minimal wave electro tunes at the end of Side One! The synth melodies on 'C beams' are just fucking gorgeous, incredibly evocative & almost euphoric in their crystalline flow. The remainder of the album I can live with, but this track, which sort of stands alone within this set, is the cat's pyjamas. For all those old Trumpett/Skanfrom/dystopian synth-pop fans without a doubt.

This was my favourite record of 2011 or at least the one I played the most. If you like Jean Michel Jarre's Oxygene LP it is nearly impossible to not love this one.
