  1. lol, i completely give up on this genre. anyone who thinks hype has anything to do with this hasn't been out of highschool long enough. this album is a masterpiece, psytrance is a fucking joke of a genre. if you don't like this have fun listening to your boom boom boom boom, paint by number bullshit music. later its been fun but i just cant stand anything about this genre anymore
  2. nexus, what are you listening to that is so much better than this that it has no depth? outside of venetian snares i'm pretty sick of every genre of electronic music, just derivative shit over and over. I think skinny puppy's last album is better than this but thats a much different emotional feel. Outside of that there is not much original sounding electronic music being made like this.
  3. I couldn't personally give a shit about sound quality. To me thats what artist hide behind in this scene who really have no musical ability and shouldn't even be making music in the first place. Velvet Underground or shit, virtually any rock music is a good contrast. I've never heard someone recommend me a band or review a rock album with "well this music sucks, the songs are terrible, it all sounds exactly the same as a million other bands but WOW the production is so good it makes up for that".
  4. I think its a masterpiece and have hated everything posford has done since shpongle 1. A mixed reaction is to be expected though since its pretty much stripped of having much to do with psytrance besides for i'm a freak. I almost wish they had done 2 disks now, one with more vocal tracks and one with all instrumentals.
  5. Try listening to Music for 18 Musicians while your trying to fall asleep with headphones on. Its an amazing composition, very hypnotic. Its not the kind of music you put on when your friends are over and having some drinks but in the right context its incredible. i think his tape music sucks though too.
  6. yea sick bass on my studio monitors. i love that simon brought back that slideing dark shpongle 1 bass. this album pretty much kills off psytrance to me. to even compare this to anything released this year is a fucking joke.
  7. this is a whole level of complexity beyond shpongle. Listen to the layers of melodies on Your Friends Are Scary,thats fucking ridiculous.
  8. no words they should have called this "the real shpongle 2 album" the only filler is sleepwalker pt 2, every other track is un fucking real.
  9. listening to happy pills for the first time. this fucking owns. not sure alot of psy people are going to like this album, too much creativity.
  10. woooo, fuck this. i'm not waiting. thank god for torrents. 20 minutes to go:)
  11. The difference now though is back in the day he didnt seem to have so much of the "guru" feel to him. It was more he was cool because with his position he could get tons of unreleased stuff when "unreleased" was a big deal. At this point though its not about his music, the music he plays is utter shit while back in the day he did play the absolute best psy released or not. People go to see him now for this little cult of personality he has going, thats what I assume the thread starter is talking about with people getting defensive if you say he blows.
  12. Agree, no clue what the thread starter is talking about. Fake live acts are the most important thing in psytrance. Compared to other electronic genres there is virtually no big psy djs.
  13. its not just the music he plays its his whole "cyber saddhu" thing that i just think is really cheesy at this point. I think that was cool when psytrance was goa, it fit. Now its just stupid. "old hippy fake holy man playing quasi gabber psytrance, praise shiva".
  14. I use to love his top 10s from 2002 on back, totally in sync with my taste. To me at this point though the stuff he plays is just fucking stupid. I wouldn't even go see him if he came around. I think his whole image is kind of laughable at this point and very very cheesey.
  15. how about a genre of psy made by professional musicians with real music talent and not kids in their moms basement ripping eachother off with pirated software. i can't even imagine what that would sound like anymore
