    Junkie XL never allows the guests to dominate the tracks, synthesizing polished layers by merging the strengths of outside players with his own multi-genre prowess.

    It maintains the basic tenets of electronic music, but rarely pigeonholes itself, allowing for musical contrasts.

    For those who like their electronic music clearly defined, it's a hard sell, but Synthesized is an easy recommendation for those who appreciate Junkie's skill and/or any witty genre-jumping around dance-pop.

    Enjoyable throughout. [Dec 2012, p.92]

    Much of Synthesized sounds like a rather bland concentrate of whatever musical style Holkenborg has chosen to upgrade. [No.94, p.56]
