A far-reaching batch of tunes from the soundtrack to the documentary Moog – and a great document on its own, of the ever-growing influence of the synthesizer pioneer! The track list is very strong, from the retro electro pop of Stereolab, to the ambient agro Meat Beat Manifesto, to the deep thumping synth funk of Bernie & Bootsy, to the post-everythring groove of Tortoise. A surprisingly cohesive listen, too! Tracks include "Abomination" by 33, "Variation One" by Stereolab, "Bob's Funk" from The Moog Cookbook, "You Moog Me" by Jean-Jacque Perrey & Luke Vibert, "Unavailable Memory" by Meat Beat Manifesto, "When Bernie Speaks" by Bernie Worrell & Bootsy Collins, "Nanobot Highway", "Beautiful Love" by Tortoise and more. The package includes a great bonus CD of equally far-reaching tracks that aren't featured in the movie – featuring new wave classics "Mongoloid" by Devo, "Cars" by Gary Newman and "Blue Monday" by New Order, prog classics "Lucky Man" by ELP and "Close To The Edge" by Yes, "EVA" by Jean-Jacques Perry, and "Baroque Hoedown" by jingle composers They Might Be Giants.
