Synopsis, France

Synopsis - Gamme. 1981 FLVM.

Synopsis’ second album was released at the tail end of the original French theatrical prog movement, and thus was pretty much ignored by everyone. Released on the quintessential cult label FLVM (Nuance, Flamen Dialis, Kha-Ym). What strikes me most about “Gamme” is the lengthy instrumental passages, something that was sorely missed on the Mona Lisa albums for example. Plenty of that patented French tortured guitar, old vintage keyboards and complex rhythms. A slight improvement on their debut.

Their debut "Minuit Ville" has already been reissued by Musea.

Priority: 2
