Format: Audio Cassette
In Tomita's music I have found serene beauty, relaxation, landscapes of wonder, mysterious spaces, thrilling excitement, inspiration, and some fun. He creates his music with more depth, color, imagery, feeling, and thought than any other synthesized music I have ever heard.

The big box set of all 11 CDs has finally been released! The current price is expensive. But considering that a number of Tomita CDs are $29 to $100 minimum, and all the CDs in the box (and only the box) have been remastered, it is almost a bargain! Well, almost. So here is my list, improved and updated for accuracy (April 2008)... As a person who started collecting Tomita and lots of other electronic music when I was 19 in 1979, plus the original symphony orchestra versions of the classical music that Tomita used, I hope you consider me qualified to create the following list of Tomita albums and review them as well.

Note on the 1991 Surround Sound CDs of the first five albums: No matter how good the stereo equipment, for some reason, the sound meant for the rear channels almost completely disappears. So, if you prefer more balanced sound, other releases may be better.

SNOWFLAKES ARE DANCING 1974
(11 Debussy pieces)
Some say Snowflakes is Tomita's best CD. I think it is in his top three. I love the range of styles in this album, the relaxing beauty, the depth of colors. The Snowflakes album is very enjoyable.

The newly remastered High Performance CD is audiophile quality and adds Prelude To The Afternoon of a Faun also by Debussy.

PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION 1975 (Mussorgsky)
This is definitely one of Tomita's best. For this album he created some of the most unusual, high quality electronic sounds ever heard.

It's a classic album of great music with a unique presentation.
We own the vinyl, and an early snow had me looking for a digital copy of the title track.

If you like Debussy, and you enjoy well produced synthesizer music, you'll love this.

I bought this album back in the mid 70s when Allison Steele played it on WNEW FM here in NYC. Great redo of Debussy's classics done in the way Walter Carlos did Switched on Bach. What we called "Head Music" was way better than disco! I wore out the first album and bought another along with Tomita's "The Planets".
