GeN2Mo One of the most unrelentingly catchy collections of bubbly, bright Retro-Pop(/Synthwave) summer hit material I've listened to in quite some time. You probably won't lose yourself in the layers here but it will likely still occupy a pleasent little space in your memory for quite a while. Favorite track: Hell or High Water.

ARKHATRON Coming from an 80s teen - superb job in every way! To the point that I can't even pick a favorite track ;)

Track Name: Echelon
ECHELON

Come unglued
Theres nothing you can do
When it’s gold
I know that nobody’s got control
Please believe
Now get me off of my knees
And we know there’s more
To that cosmic energy

Are you an image in my mind?
A figment of my imagination
Just like a memory I can’t find

I gave you life within my mind
And now you know, and now you know
The upper echelon
I gave it all my precious time
And now we know, and now we know
The upper echelon

Set your bet
When you astral project
And you know
You can’t 
Ever get it back
Come unglued
Like the blankets in your bedroom
And we know there’s more
To the matrix of light and color

I gave you life within my mind
And now you know, and now you know
The upper echelon
I gave it all my precious time
And now we know, and now we know
The upper echelon

Are you an image in my mind?
A figment of my imagination
Just like a memory I can’t find
A figment of my imagination 
Holding a picture magnified
When my mind is full of concentration
There is a place I left behind

I gave you life within my mind
And now you know, and now you know
The upper echelon
I gave it all my precious time
And now we know, and now we know
The upper echelon
The upper echelon
Track Name: Wrong
WRONG

You see me standing there on my own
You think it's time for you to take me home
But there's likely something you don't see
And that's I don't need you here with me
It's time for me to take the reins
Because frankly I don't feel the same
And I know you weren't expecting this
But you're just somebody that I won't miss

(Dawn to dawn, from the nighttime)
From the night to the day
To the day to night
From the dusk to the dawn
Where did we go wrong?

I see you standing there on your own
I think it's time for me to take you home
But there's likely something I don't see
And that's you don't want to be with me
It's time for you to take the reins
Because frankly you don't feel the same
And I know I wasn't expecting this
But I'm just somebody that you won't miss

(Dawn to dawn, from the nighttime)
From the night to the day
To the day to night
From the dusk to the dawn
Where did we go wrong?

Oooh yeah? Here with me?
Ooh woah woah
Oooh yeah? You don't feel the same?
Ooh woah woah
Oooh yeah? Here with me?
From the night to the day
To the day to night
From the dusk to the dawn
Where did we go wrong?
Oooh yeah? You don't feel the same?
From the night to the day
To the day to night
From the dusk to the dawn
Where did we go wrong?

(Dawn to dawn, from the nighttime)
From the night to the day
To the day to night
From the dusk to the dawn
Where did we go wrong?
Track Name: Hell or High Water
HELL OR HIGH WATER

From the garden of heaven in a western breeze
Blowing Autumn leaves into the evergreen
Hear the tavern-keeper as he counsels you
(He counsels you)
He’ll dye your clothes with red wine
so we can open our eyes
From the back of the mind
Is it what you wanted?

I don’t see now that
I don’t see no more lies
From the back of the mind
Is it what you wanted?
Hell or high water
Taking a ride on the tide
From the steps to the walk
Is it what you wanted?

The waves a running high, the night is clouded with fears
(And whirlpools clash)
How will your drowning voice strike into every ear
(For a thousand years)
Find the winds that are blowing thru the starry ways
(Starry winds fan the flames)
Come hell or high water
will we stay the same?

From the back of the mind is it what you wanted?

I don’t see now that
I don’t see no more lies
From the back of the mind
Is it what you wanted?
Hell or high water
Taking a ride on the tide
From the steps to the walk
Is it what you wanted?

A tale of April
Leave the cash where your fortress falls
(Build a fort)
Fort with red wine where my heart may brave
Build a fort with red wine…

I don’t see now that
I don’t see no more lies
From the back of the mind
Is it what you wanted?

Hell or high water
Taking a ride on the tide
From the steps to the walk
Is it what you wanted?
Track Name: Holiday
HOLIDAY

And a hope so strong
I’ve had all along
Every time I face the immoveable
And my beautiful youth
My naivety is nothing more than a short lived tyranny

Holiday
What you see is what I’ve been dreaming
Holiday
What you say you cannot believe in…

And the present comes
When the future goes
That which abides is unchangeable
And our beautiful hopes
Our eternal dreams
Are nothing more than a short lived tyranny

Holiday
What you see is what I’ve been dreaming
Holiday
What you say you cannot believe in…
Holiday (it’s a holiday)
What you see is what I’ve been dreaming
Holiday (it’s a holiday)
What you say you cannot believe in…

Cannot believe
Cannot believe
Feel control
Feel control…

Holiday (it’s a holiday)
What you see is what I’ve been dreaming
Holiday (it’s a holiday)
What you say you cannot believe in…
Holiday (it’s a holiday)
What you see is what I’ve been dreaming
Holiday (it’s a holiday)
What you say you cannot believe in…
Track Name: Staying Here
STAYING HERE

You kill me, you thrill me
When you need it
Now's the time
It's your chance
I feel trapped, I am trapped
Can't step back from you

All tied down
Lying here, staying here
I wait for you
I will stay by your side
By your side always
I will cry, I will find
I will fight in your glow
Yeah!

You give me ecstasy
Right when I need it
Even though I'm relieved
I feel trapped, I am trapped
Can't step back from you

All tied down
Lying here, staying here
I wait for you
I will stay by your side
By your side always
I will cry, I will find
I will fight in your glow
Yeah!

I will stay lying here
By your side I wait for you
I will stay flying here
By your side

Track Name: We Will Win
WE WILL WIN

Life is only what we choose to make it
Let's just take it, let us be free
We can find the glory we all dream of
And with our love we can win

Still, we must fight or face defeat
We must stand tall and not retreat
With our strength we'll find the might
There's no fight we can't fight together
All together we can win

Blessed with strong hearts that beat as one
Watch us soar
And with love that conquers all
We'll win this battle, this last battle
We will win... We will win...
We can win... We will win...

As the battle goes on we feel stronger
How much longer must this go on?
Each and every day we dream of winning
And beginning a new life

Still, we must fight or face defeat
We must stand tall and not retreat
With our strength we'll find the might
There's no fight we can't fight together
All together we can win

Blessed with strong hearts that beat as one
Watch us soar
And with love that conquers all
We'll win this battle, this last battle
We will win... We will win...
We can win... We will win...
Track Name: Skipping Stones
SKIPPING STONES

Ah uh cause you got to feel it!

Walk along
The passage in the sand
Take off your mask
We’re safe now don’t react
On what you knew
Like the pebbles along the shore
Are beckoning you
to the age of skipping stones

Cause it it it it is all all
Just an illusion of truth
Cause we we we we we
Know know
Now that we’ve grown so alone

Ah uh you got to see it
I’m skipping stones
Ah uh cause you got to feel it!

Say you will
Take a walk along the path
Without a match
It’s safe now don’t react
To where we’ll go
So much better than ever before
Where love is lost
Back to the age of skipping stones

Cause it it it it is all all
Just an illusion of truth
Cause we we we we we
Know know
Now that we’ve grown so alone

Ah uh you got to see it
I’m skipping stones
Ah uh cause you got to feel it
Yeah skipping stones!

Cause it’s just an illusion of truth
And we… now the we’ve grown so alone
Track Name: Nameless Sky
NAMELESS SKY

Come on yeah it's like that

Ten directions every way
I don’t wanna go the wrong way
I don’t wanna learn nothing and not empty my mind
Never go abandoning
All my ordinary people things
I don’t wanna go diving out a nameless sky

When the mind is at peace
You wanna be unknown
And I wanna run with you…

All the way
All the time
I rest my eyes upon the planets in the sky
Formless face
Nameless sky
The clock is tickin’ out of time

All the saints and hypocrites
Worldly senses on the fritz
Each and every action manifests… in the mind
Never go abandoning
All my ordinary people things
I don’t wanna go diving out… a nameless sky

When the mind is at peace
You wanna be unknown
And I wanna run with you…

All the way
All the time
I rest my eyes upon the planets in the sky
Formless face
Nameless sky
The clock is tickin’ out of time

Come on yeah come on
It's like that, it's like that
Come on yeah come on
It's like that, it's like that

All the way
All the time
I rest my eyes upon the planets in the sky
Formless face
Nameless sky
The clock is tickin’ out of time
Track Name: Alchemy
ALCHEMY

I know there’s another way
When the night comes pouring in
It’s from another galaxy
Made of all black metallic
Shiny as a limousine
In the darkness we can see
An echo of an ancient dream
and the perfect alchemy

The Attraction and reaction
Fill the chalice with liquid dreams
And the alchemy will never cease to be
The Theory of everything
A A A A A A Alchemy

I know of a another way
Where the starlight never ends
It’s in another galaxy
Made of disintegration
Shiny as a leather seat
In a black celebration
An echo of an ancient dream
and the perfect alchemy

The Attraction and reaction
Fill the chalice with liquid dreams
And the alchemy will never cease to be
The Theory of everything

Ha the Attraction and reaction
Fill the chalice with liquid dreams here
And the alchemy will never cease to be
The Theory of everything

A A A A A A Alchemy

The Attraction and reaction
Fill the chalice with liquid dreams
And the alchemy will never cease to be
The Theory of everything
