XARGON One of the best synth concept albums ever created. This album proves that if you can come up with a cool storyline and have the synth know how to back it up, it is possible to create a whole world of sound and craft this in true OST fashion. Dystopia made flesh. Favorite track: Border Control.

Adam Vorobyov I have only just now begin to start discovering the synthwave genre in all its glory, this 'Soundtrack-like' release is stellar, its the perfect soundtrack for a low budget late 80s early 90s cyberpunk film. Favorite track: Borrowed Time.

CARNOV This album is a top quality production and feels like a score to a blockbuster video game with a full range of epic events.

It's intense, emotive, dangerous and stands as one of the best releases in Synthwave for 2014
GOLD RATING 10/10 Favorite track: Enter The Ranger.

about

“The year is 2089, a once just and honest local authority has turned on its citizens, plunging them into a life of oppression and fear. Artistic expression is forbidden, yet those in power secretly negotiate and control its reach. Life within the borders is hard and many have given up hope of a better life, resigning themselves to work in the authority's vast headquarters as little more than drones. Art is the only currency and the authority will do whatever it takes to acquire every last piece. Will it always be this way? Or will someone take a stand on the mean streets of Corruptopia...”
