Although Information Society has always been a "creative collective," most fans consider the trio of Kurt Harland/Larson, Paul Robb and James Cassidy to be the band's "classic lineup." With a platinum album, several Top 10 singles and a number of world tours to their credit, it's hard to argue. Luckily for fans, this classic lineup is back together, and judging by the reaction from fans at their Madison Square Garden show in July 2007, the group is in fine form.
"Synthesizer" features Kurt, Paul and James as well as other special guests and members of the "InSoc Continuum," including singer Christopher Anton and even former teen idol Colleen FitzPatrick (aka Vitamin C). Fans of the band's best-known hits like "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)," "Running" and "Think" will find this new album to be familiar without being stale. Those who follow the current crop of electro-pop bands will also find plenty to love about "Synthesizer," including a greater appreciation of the influence that Information Society had (and still has) on so many successful electronic artists.

Synthesizer took a few listens before I enjoyed it. I have been a fan of Information Society since my friend turned me on to them in the early 90's. Read morePublished on February 8, 2011 by Marc Jacques
This CD is awesome. It is a must buy for all fans of synth-pop.
Might be the best CD I've gotten in the past year.
I'm really surprised I hadn't heard more/anything about this album. It's fantastic! Their best work yet, and I've been a big fan of all their work. Read morePublished on March 12, 2010 by J. Barba IV

This CD really does take over where P&L, Inc left off (not DBA since that album really was a one off of a whole other genre). Read morePublished on December 30, 2008 by Jon Gerow
This is the triumphiant return of one of the most courageous bands of the 80's! It is excellent from start to finish. Read morePublished on December 12, 2008 by David J. Kiluk
Well Information Society reunited and they played a 4 city tour. The last city on that tour was right here in Austin, TX at the Gothic hangout Elysium. Read morePublished on September 19, 2008 by Stephen B. Sumemrlin
