With music and production from Transient and Etherphonic continuously mixed by DJ Revolver, Transync is the "definitive trance and house tribute to *NSYNC." All of the superstar pop combo's biggest hits are here, including "Bye Bye Bye," "Tearin' up My Heart," "I Want You Back," and "This I Promise You." Unfortunately, only the latter two songs feature any kind of vocals. While it isn't likely the studio musicians hired for this production would posses the vocal chops of Justin, JC, Joey, Lance, and Chris, it's still the vocals that separate *NSYNC's songs from those of competitors like the Backstreet Boys. By removing the vocals and accelerating the already homogenous source material, Transient and Etherphonic have removed any tenable link between the originals and what appears here. Numerous *NSYNC tracks have appeared in authorized remix format on singles and imports since the band's popular emergence; fans and aficionados of the group would be better off seeking these out than settling for the unrewarding Transync.
