Modern Synthpop Defined: ZyniC

At first listen, I knew I would adore this album by ZyniC. It touches on all the elements of synthpop that I love so much. The melodies, the classic vocal style, that analogue synth and little bubbly squelches. I love that Speak 'n' Spell effect for some reason. Each track has a lot going on, but it doesn't become sensory overload. The lyrics deal with the subjects we've come to expect from the genre: love, silence, the heart, blame, regret, dreams, the soul... I could go on. Instead, I encourage you to get a hold of Zynic's Fire Walk With Me as soon as possible. A Different Drum, the premiere source for electronic pop on the web, has it here.
