Review:

This is absolutely fantastic! This music is so beautiful it's hard to find
words adequate enough to describe what I feel when I listen to this. Simon
Posford is involved in a lot of the tracks here and his production skills are
very obvious on the tracks he has co-produced! Anyway, I.S.T.'s "Aqua Sufi" is
a lenghty and beautiful track, with a gorgeous melody played by a sitar!
Really nice!! SO36's "Freedom" is unbelievable! Starts out beautiful with some
choir and then moves into a darker mood with a haunting acidline coming out of
the cutoff-filter! After that things change and the track developes into a
beautiful, meditative and relaxing track with amazing rhythms. I lack the
words! "Spirals" by Nomads Of Dub is also good. It's a more busy track with a
very deep production, but still very beautiful! "Lapis" is a remix of "Mundis
Imaginalus" which can be found on the Celtic Cross album "Hicksville". Lapis
is like the original very good with some awesome rhythmic patterns!
"Armageddon Dub" is very cool, again with a deep and immense production, a
nice rhythm and some beautiful chants. Some people might find Blue Lotus'
"Gaia" a little hard to like. It has some definite "rock" influences with some
wild sequences where it seems like someone is torturing an electric guitar :)!
But I like it... ..."Pink Floydish"...? ...Nahh...! "Liquid Dub" by Dub Trees
is very beautiful. It's really a shame it isn't any longer! It's like a small
piece of psychedelic ambient. I would like to hear more like that from Dub
Trees!! And to sum up everything: GET THIS NOW! This is one of those albums
that's worth tracking down at all costs! Plur - Psylent Buddhi

Great !!!
tracks 1-2-3 are gems ! beautifuls tracks...
i don't really lke celtic cross remix...in my opinion original was
better...Gaia sounds like Rage against the machine downtempo !!! but the
tracks is a little dissapointing...going nowhere..

A really great Cd ambient with Dub influences (it is written on it !!!!!)
9/10

Tracks 1, 3 and 5 are excellent - note that #3 is on several other comps
though. Worth picking up, even though the Gaia track is awful.

Great compilation. "Armageddon Dub" is the best tune, but all tracks are top
quality creations. The only thing that disturbs me, is that the sixth track
doesn't fit into this compilation. It sounds like a mixture of Chemical
Brothers and FSOL's sound in their album "ISDN". Altogether, a worthy
investment.

Considering it like the collection of tracks it's all great, worth picking up
for the vast majority of them alone. Heh, S.Posford is a name! ;) But, imho,
as the conceptual set this one isn't as good as it could be: whenever I put
this on I find myself every once & again unable to follow it the places it
leads to (if any) all the way. Particularly, forementioned "wrong" track #6
from Blue Lotus isn't actually as bad as it gets -- but one thing is for sure
here: it totally ruins the subtle images the first three tracks tried to
create. If it is put here "for a change" then it's drawback just because the
change it does is by far "off the stream". Though it is hard to judge which
track is the best, my choice falls here on #5 "Armageddon Dub" for being so
intense & "incapsulated" it flows flawlessly till the very end independently
from the mood-disorientation this comp. creates. Beyond the influence, that's
it! ;) The whole thing gets 7/10 from me, but this mark could easily be higher
if not the problem I just mentioned. Also, am I right saying that this comp
was released in 1999 on Liquid Sound Design what then was followed by
Dragonfly release in the beginning of year two thousand? Tchankov I.V.

very good compil.. if you look good you can see simon posford (hallucinogen,
shpongle), nick doof, .. the big ones are united here!! it's varied and
melodic, mind expanding ambient trancy stuff!! but WHAT THE FUCK is track 6
doing here??? it just breaks the magic, it's killing this wonderfull cd! my
favourites are all but this.. rating 8/10 (9/10 whitout track 6)
btw dewastator: thanx for your uplifting review..
