BLACK VINYL – LIMITED NUMBERED EDITION 100
7″ We’ll Get Around To You – Bonus (Art-Edition)
Once described by Edward Ka-Spel as a companion to Chemical Playschool: Vols. 11, 12 & 13, Synesthesia is finally pressing in Deluxe Double Vinyl Edition.
It is a great Esoteric and Experimental album totally original in comparison to All the King’s Horses and All the King’s Men, the two “song” albums released later that same year.
Brilliant excursion into ambient abstraction in the Premonition 26/Premonition 28 sequence, in matters of experimental music, Flashback is much successful with its creaking sounds and ghostly, ectoplasmic aural reminiscences.
Song-wise, Shining Path and The More It Stays the Same are great efforts, and put Synesthesia being an essential LPD title.
Historically, it is noteworthy for being the first album featuring the quartet lineup of Ka-Spel, the Silverman, Niels van Hoorn, and Martijn de Kleer, with Raymond Steeg in the control room.
Great cover (Black an White on silver-mirror paper), standard edition 600 copies with Black Vinyl. Also available 100 limited with White Vinyl (including poster). Exclusive T-Shirt, poster and a very special Art-Edition of the single 7″ included (each copy is different)
