Wendy Carlos's electronic masterpiece

Wendy Carlos's brilliant 1986 work, Beauty in the Beast, now "meticulously fine-tuned, cleaned and optimized each track using Hi-D equipment", is arguably the most innovative and ground-breaking synthesizer album of the 20th century. Its eight tracks push the boundaries of electronic music in dizzyingly fascinating ways, offering compelling testament to the astounding power and expansive dynamism of digital synthesis in the right hands. It's the kind of cutting-edge, career-defining album every self-respecting electronic musician should aspire to make in his/her lifetime. Buy the album at Amazon and support the artist!
