    Happy mushroom
  1. Haha seeing that post, is like seeing a big list of chores that need to be added to my current list. But I already have downloaded quite a few of those non-psy things, and will get around to them soon.
  2. Listening to music is actually like a chore to me. I force myself to do it, and to keep listening to new stuff, even when most of it sucks. You guys should be thankful that I share my research with you. :drama:
  3. What are you even talking about? Half the stuff on the list isn't very good, and wouldn't be recommended by anyone who I take recommendations from, only some random person named it so you added it to your list. That's why a combined list is useless....
  4. Other stuff that's not as good, but still decent: Abakus - That Much Closer To The Sun Aes Dana - Season 5 Asura - Code Eternity Cardamar - Steam H.U.V.A. Network - Ephemeris Hol Baumann - Human Ishvara - Magik Square Of The Sun Kick Bong - Flower Power S. Zeilenga - In Media Res Ten Madison - Avenue Terra Nine - Strange Craft The Kumba Mela Experiment - East Of The River Ganges Xerxes - The Mirror Formula PS: I only actually listened to about 3/4 of the chillout music so far, so my list is not complete.
  5. I always imagined that artists would find it annoying if random people emailed them their thoughts on their music, as though their opinion was actually substantial.
  6. A combined list is actually pretty useless, similar to looking at the combined rating for a release on discogs. You have no idea who recommended what. Ratings are only useful if you know who liked what and how often you like the same things that that person likes. If the goal was just to list chillout releases indiscriminately I could print out my directory list of them (before I delete 3/4 because they aren't worth saving) as a starting point.
  7. Here's some of my favorites list, since I disagree with a lot of that combined list. Aes Dana - Aftermath Aes Dana - Memory Shell Aes Dana - Leylines Asura - Lost Eden Asura - Life2 Aural Planet - Lightflow Carbon Based Lifeforms - Hydroponic Garden Carbon Based Lifeforms - World Of Sleepers Cardamar - Where The Skies End Children Of The Bong - Sirius Sounds Chronos - Steps To The Great Knowledge Distant System - Spiral Empire DownHill - Silent City EN Voice - Hall Of Dreams Entheogenic - Entheogenic Entheogenic - Spontaneous Illumination Essential Trip - Trip To Inner Self Healer - Wonderground Ishq - Orchid M-Seven - Activate Mystical Sun - After Materia Cloudland Mystical Sun - Deeperworlds Orthonorma - Time 2 Wait Phutureprimitive - Sub Conscious S. Zeilenga - Of Beauty & Mystery Shakatura - Shakatura Solar Fields - Reflective Frequencies Solar Fields - Movements Sundial Aeon - Apotheosis Welder - Vines And Stream Yagya - Rigning
  8. Next question: What was the first ever goa trance album?
  9. This music is not only about arrangement though, but about making the instruments as well. Nope, it was a joke. :wank:
  10. Here's an album I consider revolutionary... totally pioneering goa/psy trance (more so in other tracks lol), cited as the inspiration for AP (who in turn inspired IM 8 years later)... and look... they integrated classical (and opera) sounds in some tracks! (More heavily than IM, granted.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2G7zZc3v6c But anyways, I hypothesize most artists didn't use so many direct classical sounds because it's actually not as creative as creating their own sounds and atmospheres for tracks, rather than using something that's been around already for hundreds of years. So I really struggle to call such seeming relapses revolutionary. Either way, I think you will find IM extremely similar to Sandman if you listen to both, though Sandman doesn't use any direct classical sounds. I refuse to count IM as some great revolutionaries because I can point very easily at their influences: Sandman's style + synths from a popular genre of music hundreds of years old. Brilliant! Absolute genius! How could they ever come up with that?!?! :wank:
  11. Elysium already provided a really good basis a page or two ago. Listen to Sandman and you can't really tell the tracks apart from IM, except maybe IM has slightly better production. Throw in some of the others he mentioned like GNOTR, Tandu and MFG, maybe Tarsis, and you pretty much have discovered the roots of their music. Suddenly it doesn't seem all that new and original after all. If you've never heard these other earlier artists you might otherwise arrive at the wrong conclusions.
  12. This is no secret, I've already told you. It's a little more difficult than comparing two towers, but if you understand the established procedures at the time and then compare them to a new album you should be able to judge how revolutionary it was or wasn't.
