Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2017-10-16 
Old school analog synth rock compositions, like Tomita or Tangerine Dream meets Neu or Wooden Shijps. All instrumental (almost), most have a darkness about them. Very Moog, all analog synths, and many tracks produced by none other than Quintron. Very cool. Like Walter/Wendy Carlos covering Joy Division instead of Beethoven. “Switched on Joy Division”!

1) (2:17) quiet fade-in, slow electro melody and plod, an interlude/intro of sorts 2)* (4:04) super cool dark synth plod rock 3) (3:13) slow dark synth, almost creepy 4) (4:11) cool looping sequence, with “real” sounding drums, like Joy Division played by Wendy Carlos. 5) (1:36) looping, subtle, dark, creepy 6)* (5:02) sheesh an almost proto disco feel, with tinkling piano melodies and a relentless synth beat, a very strange synth solo appears rendering this incomparable, great stuff 7) (4:19) 80’s beat and feel sorta, heavily treated vocoded vocals appear on this one 8) (4:51) dark cinematic quality, scary movie tension 9) (3:34) very moog, modulating tones, and melody 10) (3:29) lots of white noise in amongst the tones, cool pensive but bright 11) (5:59) 80’s feel, with vocoder vocals
