3 stars Sayer Seely or simply SAYER is a USA based prog-electronic musician whose influences are among the most notable Larry Fast's SYNERGY and of course the usual crowd. But in this "Random Access Melodies", 2013, Vangelis and JM Jarre should be considered also.

A 13 compositions release that moves along the LA electronic school and the Berlin one with sparkles of Vangelis' epic/friendly/atonal riffs and Jarre's extremely friendly post OXYGEN sequencer melodies.

Well played, kind of a "let's be happy" mood, which strikes too close, more than once, to overly pretty 80's "Mainstream New Age" environments.

The good thing going for this release is that in this PA's world, repetition seems, almost always, more valuable than invention. But in mine, repetition is, almost always, boring.

A nice effort that plays along "tribute like" lines. Best attribute> The tracks in which he blends all influences into one, i.e. "Electrosynthesis" & "Subsequence".

***3 PA stars.
