What happens when exotica meets moog and they join together on classical music covers? Insanity, that's what! I don't know who named this album "Moog Rock" but they obviously didn't listen to it first, these 10 tracks could not be further from rock n roll if they tried. Maybe it was in reference to the music "rocking" your world, because it more than likely will. In the hands of someone else this could have sounded like a train wreck but Baxter skillfully manipulates the classical material and sends it into a totally different dimension. Truly wild stuff.
