  1. Eon Project - Brain Filter

    It's clear who contributed what to UX project: Slide's Unstable is plain harsh dark psychedelia, while EON Project is very rhythmic, layered and atmospheric music. This album holds my interest from start to finish, something that Unstable could never do. I like the industrial sounds mixed with trance here. Chris Kylven has a lot of diversity in his music. I think he's underrated. He's the reason there is some soul in the Ultimate Experience album. 8/10 from me.
  2. I don't know why this received such a bad response, because it's actually quite good music. Yes it is goa trance, not all goa trance has to sound the exact same style or have popular dance-floor appeal. All tracks are pretty good, nice melodies and atmospheres and great detail. The final downtempo track is great too.
  3. Slide - Unstable

    It's sad to see people saying this album would be better without the downtempo track, The Zinc-Plated Goddess, that's by far the best track on this album. The other tracks are not bad, but I quickly lose focus after the first or second one because they're all the same and not very interesting to listen through. Nothing stands out. The Unstable album is nothing like Ultimate Experience, it's more scattered hard psychedelic trance rather than thick dark goa trance. Maybe the tracks are better on their own or in a mix, I don't think this is an album to listen straight through.
  4. I Dont Like Koxbox.

    I am an elitist but I think the majority of others around here are against elitism: they support things like re-releasing CDs, releasing music for free, etc. Maybe we can use a different word for believing your opinion is right and everyone else's is wrong.
  5. Gangguru - X-3

    I have this (http://www.discogs.com/release/59061) and the track Dreamtime there is different from the one on youtube, so I think that is X-3.
  6. Anoebis

    Anoebis bought some items from me, all was well, he doesn't seem like a very talkative jolly eBay buyer, anyways, I was going to send him some Suntrip records stickers with them as a joke, but I decided I'd rather keep them.

  8. Yagya - Rigning

    It's OK, but you can't really listen to it unless in a perfectly still environment, it's extremely mellow music.
  9. Gangguru - X-3

    Cool track, but is it Dreamtime or X-3?
  10. Chi-ad ripped off

    CHi-AD has the most unique and magical tracks, and lots of them. But I could understand if he got bored of spending so much effort on making tracks that go largely unappreciated.

    Interesting, I'm curious what you think classifies the music as psychedelic. Some goa trance seems to achieve this through complex patterns and layers and acid sounds solely, while other achieves it more through unpredictable changes and effects. I'm probably not wording this too well, but I think projects like Cosmosis, Shakta, Dimension 5, Miranda, etc, etc, on one side created a very different style of psychedelic music than projects like Koxbox, Ubar Tmar, Sandman, Infected Mushroom, etc, on the other side. Of course there is overlapping of the styles in each.

    I think JonCrow is trying to stir up a flame war by accusing others of being trolls. This is a classic trolling technique called the Anti-troll. Anyways, what I wanted to discuss here is why certain people like certain artists. I know it is different taste, but I believe there are some underlying factors that determine one's taste, and also that it can be described more accurately. This thread seems to have missed the point, perhaps people are too eager to defend themselves rather than explain themselves as Elysium has said.
  13. I Dont Like Koxbox.

    I don't "like" any genre, I "like" certain good musics which may or may not fall into certain genres. There's always crap in every genre, and I think Koxbox is one of the rare craps in goa trance.
  14. Best Mixes?

    I think most goa/psy mixes don't have that good of track selection and arrangement. There are too many mixes just using popular tracks. Mixing skills is mostly just making them go together smoothly at a good point, which is still important, but only after picking tracks and arranging them first. One thing I like about the mix I mentioned in first post is that it's mostly obscure tracks just released on an EP or something, not that special alone, but they all work perfectly in the mix. I also think goa might be harder to mix, since lots of the [better] tracks are so unique and different from one another due partly to the complexity of the music as well.
