"Cybotron Is To Australia What Tangerine Dream Is To Germany, Jean-Michel Jarre Is To France, Neuronium Is To Spain And Wavestar & Steve Hillman Is To England." Jeff D., Sedalia Mo Formed In 1975 By Australian Synth Pioneer Steve Maxwell Von Braund With Fellow Musician Geoff Green, Cybotron Paved A New Musical Path For Oz Electronic Music. Combining Prog, Kraut Rock, And Grafting An Avant-Garde Darkness, Cybotron Opened Up A New Sonic World To Aussie Audiences. Von Braund Found Inspiration Whilst Living In England In 1970 Having Witnessed Live Bands Like Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, Can Etc., And Brought These Influences Back With Him Upon His Return To Melbourne.

Format: Audio CD
First to clear up some confusion - this is NOT done by the US Artist of the same name. This album is done by the Australian electronic band - the music sounds a bit like a Tangerine Dream/Sky fusion. Implosion is the 3rd and final album by the band and is much more mainstream then the two earlier albums.

But it is a great electronic instrumental album and the remastering of this is superb. Additionally a few extra tracks have been included from the sessions from a 4th album that never eventuated.

I have come to add to this review to advise that the Australian company (Aztec Music) that released this and a lot of other Australian albums from the 1970's closed down in March 2012 - so if see a copy of this in the wild - grab it while you can. The album was previously available with no extra tracks and a old vinyl master available as a CD-R through a long gone website [...] That site also released the first self titled album and Colossus as CD-Rs from vinyl masters

An update to this apparently Aztec Music has been re-activated but there are little details on the homepage

Originally released in 1980 on an Australian label named Cleopatra Records (mind you). Cybotron is a progressive band from Melbourne, Australia. Until a friend lent me his copy of this CD reissue, I've barely heard of them before - seeing their discography listed on various sites and what not. 'Implosion' looks to be their fourth and final album. Tunes that I definitely got something quite good out of were the fantastic three-part sixteen-minute ~dreamy~ opener "Eureka / Implosion / Suite 16 - 9th Floor", "We'll Be Around" plus I also liked a couple of the six added bonus cuts - like "March" and the well-played "Eureka (Guitar Version)". Personnel: Steve Braund - synthesizer, keyboards & alto saxophone, Mark Jones - bass and Gil Matthews - drums, guitar, keyboard & synthesizer. Should draw in fans of Brian Eno, Tangerine Dream, Holger Czukay, some Can and possibly Bill Laswell.
