Rough Trade Shops have made a name for themselves in the field of genre compilations. Known for their quality, breadth and scope, they are the choice of the cognoscenti and always worth a peek.

Synth Wave 10 is no exception to this well-established rule. Whilst there may be those who are turned off by the inherent coldness of the synth sound, or given pause by unpleasant memories of the 80s, the variety on show here is such that all but the most ardent anti-keyboard campaigners will find something of worth.

Highlights are many, with the most striking displaying a depth of emotion that lesser synth tunes often fail to grasp. Karin Dreijer Andersson's offering is every bit the match of her outstanding Fever Ray album - all Gothic splendour and portentous rumble. The Cosmetics draw potent sensuality from icy keyboards, whilst Zola Jesus cooks up something brimful of passion and yearning.

The compilation as a whole explores a multitude of shades of synth, sounding at once retro and bleeding-edge current - most of the tracks being released within the last couple of years. Absolutely essential for fans of electronica, and a tremendous primer for those wanting to take their first steps into a deeper understanding of what the genre has to offer.

Synth wave revival gets a current compilation. 7 Oct. 2011
By Scott McWade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I became aware of this, as I was developing an interest in post punk and krautrock from the late 70s & early 80s. I was surprised to learn that this type of music never really went away, it just went dormant and this compilation does a good job of documenting its resurgence, circa 2010. There are other nice comps that document underground minimal and cold wave music in their original incarnations. Rough Trade Shops have another compRough Trade Shops: Electronic, Vol. 1, 2 CDs covering a broad swath of some of electronic music's original innovators. Interested parties will find much to engage. End Transmission.
