By comparison, that is, with his two masterworks World Gone Strange and The Last Dance of Mr X (reviewed elsewhere). It may just be a matter of personal taste, but I simply couldn't find a shred of musical enjoyment in Synasthaesia. Whatever you do, don't buy this without hearing it first.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Real Rarity 23 April 2003
By R. J. Marques - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Andy Summers is a genius. From his collaborations with Robert Fripp ("Bewitched" & "I Advance Masked"), his one solo album for MCA ("XYZ"), his releases for Private Music (Mysterious Barricades, The Golden Wire, Charming Snakes, World Gone Strange), his duet albums with John Etheridge (Invisible Threads) and Victor Biglione (Strings of Desire), as well as his albums for RCA (The Last Dance of Mr. X, Green Chimneys and Peggy's Blue Skylight) he has continued to outdo himself and provide solid musicianship, talent, and an amazing range of sounds and styles. This album "Synaesthesia" is a rarity. It was released in 1995 on a German label CMP Records. Andy teams up once again however, with David Hentschel who produced Barricades, Golden Wire and Charming Snakes, and it's good to have this musician and producer together again. Andy does not revert to Ambient music this time out with David, but stays in his jazz mode. There are 9 cuts, all of which are stellar. His musicianship is very sharp. Some of the production is not as 'knife-edge' as earlier Hentschel work, but is recorded and mixed well. Stand out cuts are Cubano Rebop, Umbrellas Over Java, Low Flying Doves and I remember. All in all, a good album, and a worthy addition to your Andy Summers discography. I would like to hear Andy team up with David again & explore more ambient directions again - at least for an album or two. But on Synaesthesia - Andy is still at the top of his game.
5.0 out of 5 stars The RajMan (Fan) Review 9 Mar. 2014
By Raj Manoharan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Andy Summers goes a little bit grunge on this dark, edgy, and lyrical album that plays somewhat like a more muscular version of his 1989 release The Golden Wire.

Summers' thick guitar lines are reinforced with lush textures by Mitchel Forman on keyboards, rocking rhythms by Jerry Watts on bass, and pulse-pounding back-beats by Cream's Ginger Baker on drums, with additional drums by Gregg Bissonette and orchestral accents by The Trouserfly String Quartet.

Summers also plays acoustic bass on one tune, and the title track is performed entirely by Summers on piano, which provides for a bit of interesting curiosity but obviously doesn't compare to the guitar-driven numbers.

This ranks among my top three favorite Andy Summers “band” albums, the other two being World Gone Strange and Earth + Sky. All three are composed entirely by Summers, are his most guitar-centric albums, and feature his most focused, consistent playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Summers shines ... 19 July 2009
By A. T. Ceglinski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Iv'e been a fan of Andy Summers for some time now, from the first Police albumn of course. He showed everyone everyone who loves guitar based rock bands, that less is more! He never tried to be the main sound of the band, but, as a 3 piece, played according to that format of guitar, bass and drums. He concentrated on simple, colourful rhythems that utilised some great chords to create a full and balanced sound with Sting on Bass and Stewart Copeland on drums, both brilliant at their instruments to say the least.

His solo albumns as well as collaborations are very interesting and show his versatility with guitar and keyboard sounds.Synaesthesia is my favourite Summers albumn and inspires me to try different approaches to the guitar, as I am a guitar intrumentalist myself.

Andy Summers as Police guitarist is brilliant,as Andy Summers the soloist .... brilliant again.

The mix of tracks on this albumn make it a most enjoyable listen as he mixes a lot of styles and sounds to produce haunting melodies that for any fan of acoustic or electric guitar will appreciate and enjoy.The more you listen to this albumn, the more it wants you to play ... Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Instrumental Experimentation... not little pop songs 16 July 2007
By Barton Spencer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a very entertaining CD, with a variety of musical styles and innovative song structures. Anyone expecting a nice little package of pop songs is not going to like it and should just move on. Anyone else who would like a dose of intelligent experimentation would do well to listen in. The CD starts with some great raw electric guitar on the opening song "Cubano Rebop" and ends with beautiful Spanish guitar on "I Remember". "Meshes of the Afternoon" reminds me of recent King Crimson while "Umbrellas Over Java" takes one audibly to a distant and mysterious land. The smooth, graceful "Low Flying Doves" drifts along for nearly 6 beautiful minutes until the brash piano chords of "Invisible Cities" wake you up to think "I've not heard a song like that before!" That's what is so nice - the different flavors and textures that Summers creates in the course of one short CD. Only the title song left me wanting, as it seemed a bit long and less interesting than the rest of the CD. But that's the ONLY song I didn't fully enjoy. A refreshing change from the every day, this CD is.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Synaesthesia (1996) ... Andy Summers ... Times Square Records (2007)" 2 Nov. 2007
By J. Lovins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Times Square Records presents "SYNAESTHESIA" - featuring Andy Summers giving his all on versatility with composing thrown in --- Andy Summers (born Andrew James Somers 31 December 1942) is an English guitarist and composer best known for his work in The Police --- Summers' primary guitars are the Fender Telecaster and Stratocaster when playing rock, and Gibson electric guitars when playing jazz fusion and jazz --- His playing has been influenced by years of jazz and classical music studies, as well as his work in new age, rock, and other musical genres --- He was born in Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire, England.

Although Andy Summers had been essentially self-taught when he began his professional musical career, he studied classical guitar at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) for four years until 1973 --- Summers continues to make heavy use of the ES-335 which is especially suited to jazz music --- He has also used archtop guitars by noted luthier Robert Benedetto --- For the 2007-2008 Police reunion tour, Summers is once again using the Telecaster and others older guitars that he used on Police albums --- Summers strongly prefers analog effects pedals in both studio and live settings and continues to use widely ranging effects setups
