  1. Artist: Circle of Protection (Pssssst....It's Filipe) Title: Trinity Seven Ep Label: Goa '96 Records Date: June, 2017 1. Trinity Seven 2. Druid "Hmmmm...should I sh*t in Steadman's mouth tonight?" Ever heard anything by Filipe Santos? I mean, literally anything. Well, this is that. Sure the project name is different (isn't that the M.O. of one who wants to constantly reinvent?) much the same way food companies try to shoehorn artificial sweeteners into everything you eat. I mean how many f*cking words are there for sugar? If you're a fan of his music (I am) than you will won't have a problem bellying up to the table to suck this down. It's good, melodic, layered, power goa. Even though I'm sure I've heard it before. Filipe Santos Music
  2. Artist: Median Project Title: The Wanderer Ep Label: Timewarp Records Date: July, 2017 1. The Wanderer 2. Made On Earth 3. Nuclear Reactor 4. The Lonely Mountain With the newly announced upcoming album from the Median Project on Goa Trance powerhouse Global Sect Records I thought it would be worthwhile to take a look at some previously released material. Sergei Petrenko from mother Russia delivers a digital ep on Timewarp (have they gone full digital?) which I believe to be a gem for lovers of straight forward space goa. While he didn't reinvent the wheel, the result is a decent journey across the cosmos with great effects and nice layering. My favorite was Nuclear Reactor. Sometimes I felt he lost his way and left the ship on autopilot a little too long, but I was never serious about hitting the airlock to try to escape. So good on you my friend, I can't wait to see if your debut album reaches epic status! Timewarp Records Bandcamp
  3. I usually employ this method when I'm having difficulty engaging with an album. This one is quite good and I think the 4/5 rating is fair.
  4. Artist: WOTE (Worms of the Earth) Title: Sekhem-A-Kheftiu Label: Timewarp Records Date: October, 2017 1. Umes (Opening the Hidden Doors) 2. Sekhem-A-Kheftiu 3. Tesert-Baiu "You know you cannot escape death, but immortality can be obtained." This movie looks awesome! I always appreciate artists asking me to write reviews because most of the time it means that they have read my work and find that it has some value. Writing reviews is a time consuming process so getting asked to write one helps me continue to want to do it. This is the solo project of Dan Barrett from DC...wait, you're from DC? I'm not saying I have a lot of rotten fruit and pungent dog feces lying around, but if I did... do you think you could make a delivery to a certain bloated douchebag? His address is 1600 Pennsylvania something or other. You can't miss him. Just follow the trail of lies and stupidity. Anyway Dan Barrett's Discogs page describes him as a dark electronic project with a few releases. I've never heard any of his material, but like a diligent detective I thought it proper to educate myself. Listening to some of his earlier material reveals his industrial side sounding oftentimes like an early more primitive version of FLA with tribal affects. As a fan of FLA this is appealing to me. So with high hopes I gave his latest effort a listen through. Unfortunately this doesn't have a tenth of the raw industrial feel or the layered detail of the older stuff. This is a three track digital ep that was mainly full-on with some psychedelic touches and goa flavor which mainly comes off as bland and uninteresting. The production is quite good sounding very professional so for that he should be commended. The only track that held any interest for me was the opener which sounded akin to something from Zion604. I find his strength so far to be his dark ambient work. While not Cold Meat Industry material it's dark and moody (Thagirion - Mired In A River Of Drowned Bodies is a sample of a track title) with chants and whispered recitations that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Check out Sitra Achra if that's more your thing. Timewarp Records
  5. Artist: Schizoid Bears Title: Dictator of Silence Label: Forest Freaks Date: July, 2017 1. Shimmy Ye 2. Kito Visato 3. Analogue Woods 4. Man / Robot 5. Spacecake 6. Dropout 7. Kuelveerstuk 8. Keep It In My Heart 9. Parabulock P. Tale and C. Monster are back with their third release offered freely by our friends at Ektoplazm. Lithuanian Forest Freaks has been making some noise (get it?) in this genre with compilations like the Under the Moss series. This project does forest right with dark and uncertain atmospheres that bring to mind those places we are loathe to tread. There is a lot of twists and turns with new sounds lurking around every tree making for a very saturated aural experience. It can be harsh and electrically abrasive yet continuously lends itself to deep hallucination. Tracks like Man / Robot and Drop Out seem to have a perfect mix of power and psychedelia. In truth it's a lot to take in and like a lot of releases in this genre the sound sometimes tends to get bogged down with its equivalence. That said, I really liked it and while it isn't something I would listen to everyday, it gave me a sense of unease throughout. Free at Ektoplazm
  6. Artist: Senang Title: Connection With Nature Ep Label: Banyan Records 1. Owl Lights 2. Sacret Agni 3. Alive Source (with Umber Vamber) 4. Connection With Nature This label is pretty cool and for my money (even though some of their releases are freely offered) they are one of the highlights in the niche genre of forest trance. Check this one out for your night time pleasure. Forest oftentimes falls into the same pitfall as darkpsy does with the lack of a discernible melody and incessant, constant hammering of the bassline. There's nothing really to grab onto until the artist begins to pay attention to the details. And you'll find that here in this short digital ep beginning with the psychedelic cover. Sure that hammering bass line is there, but he broadens the track with some eerie atmosphere and those delicious, swampy bubbles. It's pull your collar tighter and start looking at your surroundings a little closer type music. And it's free, so that makes it even sweeter! Free at Banyan Records
  7. Artist: Toires Title: Oued - Sanäti Label: Dakini Records Date: September, 2002 Track listing: CD 1 01. Haytama 02. Kamoun Soufi 03. Ma Wa'l Hob 04. Sanati 05. Market Beach 06. Mustahil 07. Nabab 08. Sidi'h Bibi 09. Toinet 10. Bessma 11. Layoun Lokdhor CD 2 01. Lelital 02. Barmanu 03. Honeymoon In Africa III 04. Azif Laile 05. Smoking Gun 06. Tali 07. Kia 08. Menara 09. Nafas Al Ayat First thing, hats off the the quality review above. Its genius is its simplicity. It reminds me of those restaurants where you get this huge white plate and the entree is super tiny and perfectly centered. And the waiter looks at you like a barbarian when you give him the "What the f*ck, that's all there is look?" This is Frenchman Florian Seriot whom I am familiar thanks to the Fahrenheit Project compilations from Ultimae. This is a 2-CD set which is just two of this albums in one package. Within you'll find a very laid back compendium of melancholy middle eastern or Indian vocals, chants, and smooth beats. Think of an ancient Middle Eastern LSD jam session. I like the combination of the breakbeats and worldly samples mixed in with the electronica. Kinda like if the Beatles got a little funky during their...ahem, experimental phase. He throws some interludes in here as well to further cement the atmosphere that you are a long way from home white boy. It's all very chill and mysterious if quite a bit samey, but it does get to be a little much. I mean two discs of really similar sounds...
  8. This is such a floating, melodic masterpiece. I will acquiesce that there aren't dramatic shifts in direction, but the bubbly, trance inducing goodness found within is pure gold. So lush. Last update we had from them was that they were working on the second album (back in 2009) so who knows where that is. But seriously, how hard could it be to get a reprint of this album done?
  9. Artist: Various Title: Portal of Perceptions Label: Celestial Dragon Records Date: May, 2005 1. Ishq - Aphrodite 2. Makyo - Jasmine 3. Adham Shaikh - Ohm (Transfix Mix) 4. Aes Dana - Haze (Celestial Mix) 5. Androcell - Caribbeyond 6. Cell - Twisted Sun 7. Androcell - Fungus Garden (Acoustic Mix) 8. H.U.V.A. Network - Rain Geometries (Solar Fields Remix) 9. Ishq - El Morya What an rich and satisfying compilation. Mixed by Vincent Villuis himself it's 12 years old and still hitting all the right notes. All the projects are established in the downtempo genre and they are doing some heavy lifting. Lots of tribal percussion here with ethereal chants, breakbeats, and trance inducing dreams. Special mention goes to the sublime Ohm (Transfix Mix) which is everything you could want in a dreamy, mystical downtempo piece. I don't believe this sub label of Sonic Dragon Records is around any longer which is a shame because it certainly delivered the goods! Beatspace Digital
  10. One of the baddest motherf*ckers ever to mangle some presets. This album is a consistent brain scrambler of the first order. The world definitely needs more of this right now. At this point I believe that Barry is the only one who can save my country. Help us Barry, you're our only hope.
  11. Artist: Morphonix Title: Off the Grid Label: Vaporvent Date: March, 2008 1. Fur Bot 2. Off the Grid 3. Dig Deep 4. Kismet Kabob 5. Bright Destinations 6. Island Sanctuary 7. Hasp Clasp 8. Fuzz Machine "Can you dig it?" I think you know that I can. This is the same mind behind the psytrance project Chromatone. It's one of my favorite psychill releases and I wonder why he only made one album under this alias. Breakbeat and glitchy it is replete with juicy basses and funk by the trunkload. Dubby basses and well placed transitions abound as he even displays some house-like swagger on Kismet Kabob. The only way this could get better for me is if he incorporated some 303 into it. But then it would be Hardfloor. This isn't music you can zone out too and I would expect nothing less from a guy like Chromatone. The only negative would be that it's no longer sold in the usual go to shops. But if you can find it, I highly recommend purchasing it. Your booty will thank you.
  12. Artist: Tetrium Title: Lose Your Senses Label: Limitspace Records Date: June, 2010 1. The Road To Happiness 2. A Way To The North (with Gothica) 3. Start To Beginning (with Uno Serpental) 4. Chipser (with Color Space) 5. Mahamodra Vs. White Noise - Sexy Body Move (Tetrium Remix) 6. Salvardo (Remix) 7. Mid Night (Vs. Uno Serpental) 8. Purple Heaven 9. Kafir 10. Salvardo (Dragon Boyz Remix) I'll explain. This was a throw in from I think Beatspace when I placed an order with them a while back. Would you call that a pity CD or a get the f*ck out of my inventory CD? Now normally when someone gives you something for free like that you can almost bet you get what you pay for. However I went into this with an open mind. Tetrium is Gadi Aviv and I used to own his debut Speed of Light waaaay back in '04, but have since outgrown his brand of simplistic full-on. Has he? Did he discover depth and dynamics or is this going to be the ear bleeding, vomit inducing, retina shearing, steaming pile of rhinoceros excrement I imagine it to be? No. No it is not. Full-on yes loaded with more galloping than a 1950's Western and its fair share of cheese. Also present is almost every imaginable cliche particular to this part of the genre. Yet...it is not unlistenable. Well you can imagine Sexy Body Move is unlistenable and it truly is. But hell there are portions that are...good decent. Those portions are usually small and at the end of the tracks after all the nonsense is over, but they are there. Chipser and Mid Night has some juicy bits and a harder edge while the Dragon Boyz remix of Salvardo is an acid drenched bomb that I would expect from the good old days of Timecode. So where am I on this? I can't recommend this because it's full-on and loaded with sh*t I despise, but I'll admit that it surpasses the low bar the genre sets for itself. Look all I'm saying is I would rather listen to this again then go back and spin just half of The Jury from Nexus Media. That really sounded like blasphemy. Ugh...I think I need a shower. Psyshop
  13. Still holds up very well 6 years on. Like this much better than his follow up efforts.
  14. Artist: Easily Embarrassed Title: Different Dimensions Label: EE Records Date: December, 2012 01 - Marble Shower (70 BPM) 02 - The Odds (92 BPM) 03 - Jester's Escape (130 BPM) 04 - Mushroom Fever (106 BPM) 05 - Different Dimensions (Continuous Mix) 06 - Jester's Escape (DJ Edit) (130 BPM) Planet Discovery and Tales of the Coin Spinner were quite enjoyable, so I decided to check out some earlier work from this Dutch trio. Marble Shower is a hodgepodge of sounds that shouldn't go together yet they do. The Odds is like an ambient dream. But an eerie ambient dream as if I was wandering though a haunted amusement park. Jester's Escape brings back memories of the Artifakt and his thumping techno while Mushroom Fever has that Infected style and big beat. Further goodies include a DJ mix of Jester's Escape and a continuous mix of the EP. It's all super varied and if that's how you like your psychill then step right up my friend. The fact that it's free from Ektoplazm is icing on the cake. Free at Ektoplazm
  15. Artist: PharaOm & Somnesia Title: Santorin Label: Space Baby Records Date: July, 2013 1. Message From Heaven 2. Zophina 3. Elytra 4. Toxic Kiss 5. God's Tears (Nova Fractal Remix) 6. Radioactivity 7. Neilos 8. Havoc 9. Frogs 10. Darkness 11. Hell-Heaven 12. Road To Exodus I miss complete sentences. 2013. Back to a time when I could wake up in the morning and not immediately wonder what the bloated pumpkin in chief had done to sh*t on my country. Got poor? F*ck 'em corporations are people too and they need your money. Any new p*ssies to grab? Remember, nazis are good people too. Mary and Joseph it's only been less than a year and I'm literally exhausted from his constant buffoonery. But thankfully this isn't about him, it's about a digital collaboration that I feel flew way under the radar. Two well known artists who got together and released a storming, melodic goa trance album. They say don't judge a book by its cover, but c'mon. Hello, rule...exception. It looks like Egypt threw up all over Ra with this cover, so you know what type of goa trance is found within. That aside these are two accomplished producers who probably understand that a certain amount of exploitation occurs when doing a concept album like this. They take it tongue in cheek, realizing that goa trance music can be full of tropes and stereotypes. Hell in one track they even have a sample that says, "OK guys it was just a joke." So yeah this is the type of goa you think it is, but it is very well done. Throw out the useless intro and outro and mostly what you have is rapid, twirling melodies sometimes hovering close to the nitzhonot line. But fear not intrepid listener, because And I love it. Fast and furious mostly, but it's not always just four on the floor. The breaks are well placed to allow the compositions to breathe. The sound quality is great which really comes out when listening to all the layers. This is one of those releases the collector in me would love to have in physical form. Beatspace Digital
  16. Artist: Unusual Cosmic Process Title: Aquatic Label: Uxmal Records Date: June, 2014 1. Under the Water 2. Transformation 3. Cosmic Blue (Phase 1) 4. Sanctuary 5. Aquatic 6. Whales 7. Cosmic Blue (Phase II) 8. Tardigrate Take a deep dive and submerse yourself into this aquatic wonderland and you shan't be disappointed. Unusual Cosmic Process is the project of Ukrainian Armen Akopov and I've heard a couple of his releases previously. Unfamiliar with this artist? Check out his track Legend on the Neogoa release Turlitava from 2011. If varied psychill is your thing this one hits all the right notes. The tracks are lush and fully packed with a very dynamic sound. Those sounds echo off each other as if leagues beneath the sea in tracks like Cosmic Blue (Phase I) which transitions from a smooth ambient to a bouncy breakbeat. And those transitions recur frequently in a track like Whales where he combines a whole bunch of styles it can't even really be put into a box. The second part of Cosmic Blue is one of my favorites with it's progressive march. He weaves real instruments with electronica and effects to give the album a floaty yet organic feel. Hell, at times this reminded me of a Jan Hammer production minus the cheese. The tracks are long for maximum immersion and I think he shines when he focuses more on the ambient production. The breakbeat stuff is really good too, but with the length of the tracks being what they are it tends to sound a little generic. Still all in all this was a great release from a great musician.

  17. Artist: James Murray Title: Eyes To The Height Label: Ultimae Records Date: December, 2016 1. The Black and The Grey 2. Holloways 3. What Can Be Done 4. Particles (Part 1) 5. Eyes To The Height 6. Ghostwalking 7. Passing Places 8. Laterisers 9. Particles (Part 2) 10. Copestone Ultimae has had a long history of quality downtempo and ambient releases and one could argue also defined the sound itself. Their albums are often dreamy, melancholy dances with the spirit world. Sometimes warm, but often cold and dreary they rarely fail to evoke strong emotions. I've been out of the Ultimae loop for awhile, but thought I would jump in with this release from James Murray. I have to say it ticks all the boxes on the checklist with it's slow, ponderous drift. And even though the album is of short length it is a slow plod. Not necessarily a bad thing yet I find it rather boring and uneventful without any drama. It's more a soundtrack to someone's personal loss or wilderness through which they must journey. It's ethereal without being overly melodic, but it does have that pensive, retrospective feel. It's not until the title track that it wakes from it's catatonia and shows a little motion and positivity. The tracks are relatively short which helps, but I cannot label this a standout by any means. I liked it but feel it works better as a full listen through rather than cherry picking tracks. I get the sense that it can be a grower because of this as it doesn't wow right out of the box. In fact I am warming up to it on multiple listens. Yeah, but I'm sure there's something else out there.

  18. Artist: Hypnoxock Title: Mental Conversations Ep Label: Goa Trance Music Date: April, 2017 1. Transformation 2. Pecadus Nocturnis Hypnoxock (pronounced Hip-no-shock) is Victor Solsana's baby now and he's been on quite the f*cking roll. I haven't heard his latest Eurythmia yet, but I hear great things. And even before his latest this project has consistently put the psychedelia back into psytrance. From way back in 2009 with the night time trance of Logic Evolution to the more recent Sounds From Another Time this project has not disappointed. With their more recent turn towards goa we have even more reason to celebrate! Discogs says this is from 2015, but their bandcamp says 2016 so forgive me if I have placed this incorrectly. This digital ep has two tracks. Transformation builds well and it's not until more than halfway through that a goa melody finally unwinds. The end is the hammer and it's worth the wait. Pecadus Nocturnis twists and turns and even though it has a galloping bass line it brings a smile. Almost halfway through the break sprouts a new tributary in which to travel. And that new way...is a goa one. Well done. Super danceable and worth adding to your hopefully large Hypnoxock collection. Hypnoxock Bandcamp
  19. Artist: Nostromosis Title: My Way Ep Label: Timewarp Records Date: August, 2017 1. Psychedelic Space Mom and Baby (First Breath) 2. Old ROM 3. Sirena Cosm 4. Monomakh (Second Breath) 5. New Life (with Sonic Elysium) Timewarp keeps chugging along and I for one am grateful for that. That said when you produce a lot of material it's fair to say that not all of them will be home runs. Nostromosis is Igor Sidorov from Mother Russia and I've always felt that his is on the lower tier of today's goa producers. Nothing personal, but his sound isn't as polished and seamless as other artists. His sound choice at times borders on annoying and none of his tracks have really impressed. Unfortunately for me with this Ep he still seems to be stuck in this rut. The second half of Sirena Cosm brings hope, but ultimately his tracks contain no drama or dynamism. They're just...there. Sorry, but this one's a pass from me. Timewarp Bandcamp Psyshop
  20. Artist: Side Effects Title: Next Destination Label: Tech Safari Records Date: September, 2017 1. Next Destination 2. Space Travel (with Sonic Sense) 3. What Is Real (with IIai) 4. Burning Man 5. Eruption 6. Waves of Sound 7. Electro Magnetic (with Helber Gun) 8. We Are Not Alone 9. Storm 10. Human Archetyp (with Seamoon) I know what you're thinking. He hasn't posted a review in months and he comes with this obscure nonsense? Yeah I know, but I don't control the mood that strikes me. You never know what's going to hit you or where the review... *38 minutes later* Sorry, I was watching an episode of Modern Family. What were we talking about? Ah, this digital album by an Israeli duo. Last I heard of them was the disastrous City On Mars album. Since I deleted that album from the hard drive and have no desire to waste my time I cannot compare the two. What I can tell you is that this is a triplet lovers paradise with a style that has been beaten to death. I enjoy their breaks and use of effects, but the music just doesn't stand out or separate itself from the countless other artists that traffic in the same style. I've started asking myself when reviewing an album if it was good enough that I would want to listen to it again. *2 hours later* You're still here? What album were we talking about? Psyshop
  21. Artist: E-mantra Title: Compendium Vol. 1 Label: Melusine Records Date: April, 2017 1. Above the Skies 2017 (Live Version) 2. Approaching Nibiru (2017 Version) 3. Dansul Ielelor (2012 Version) 4. Dark Corners of the Universe (2017 Version) 5. Distant Signals (Rmx 2017 Version) 6. Leviathan 7. Pathfinder (2017 Version) 8. Telluric Waves (2017 Version) While the new guns currently dazzle us with their electronic wizardry we must never forget that a beast of the genre still lurks in the ether. Mr. Carpus has proven himself to be a master of goa trance time and again with 4 albums of blissful and transcendent goa as well as four downtempo chillers. The man is a legend any way you slice it. His style is hypnotic, melodic, and steeped in eerie layers. This digital only release (I hear tale that a CD is in the works) is comprised of previous tracks that have been re-edited and remastered as a thank you to the fans. And it is all that you think it is. Ripping 303's, lush melodies that slowly appear and then drift off into the cosmos, and shifting focus with seamless details. It's darkly mysterious, mystical, and layer heavy. Personally I don't have the time to compare each track with the original, but what I can tell you is that it is a great goa album that fits in nicely with his previous releases. He doesn't take any chances, but does what he does best. If you're a fan of his style then this is a must have. Melusine Records Bandcamp
  22. Artist: Various Title: ZNA Gathering - A Retro Futuristic Compilation Label: Dance N Dust Records Date: August, 2017 1. Bus V.s Slide - Everyday, the Belsize Mix (1998) 2. Orion - Frenzy (1997) 3. Dragon - Resurrection (1998) 4. Shazbatt - Organic Deflection (1998) 5. Little Blue Men - Ace of Space (1998) 6. Atmos - Devine Hex (1997) 7. Noma - K3 (1999) 8. The Mato Project - Asa Equals Goddess (1997) 9. Sarolta Monspart - Slowdown Action (1996) "That was f*cking trippy!" Was is though? I purchased this compilation sound unheard because of FOMO. That's fear of missing out for those that didn't know. You say, "Yeah, I'll get it later", and then it's gone and goes for hundreds on the second hand market. I mean sh*t I had Ethereal's Anima Mundi in my hand and sold it for cheap! Therefore I vowed to never make that mistake again. First let me say that I don't go to festivals. I'm middle aged with young kids, they happen far away, and from the videos I've seen it seems like a dirty experience. It's a younger person's game. I'd rather sit on my porch and yell at the kids to stay of my f*cking lawn. I mean, I would like to do that, but my neighborhood don't have no kids. So I have to yell as if there were kids on my lawn. Anyway, I'm not familiar to this label, but as I mentioned above it's not integral to the story. I just didn't want to miss out and this wasn't really advertised that much. So ZNA seems like a big festival and this compilation has a bunch of unreleased tracks that were nonetheless played for close to 20 years. Impressive. You'll recognize some names, but personally I haven't heard of any of these tracks. Cool, new discovery! As I await my copy in the mail, the FLAC version sounds great! Full, rich, bass that demands to be played loud. The next thing you should know is that this isn't in the style of Etnica or Astral Projection. There are no epic melodic monsters. It's more an eclectic mix of "the other side of goa trance." The not so shiny side. I liked The Ace of Spades by Little Blue Men which was constantly changing direction with lots of bubbling and screechy sounds. But then you have tracks like Frenzy from Orion which sounds like a bunch of tracks he started and then stitched together. Devine Hex by Atmos shows his progressive chops, but the track plods along and doesn't go anywhere. Rather boring. Speaking of boring K3 by Noma shows him at his minimal best (worst?). The last two just don't measure up. So yeah...I would've left this party. The one thing this compilation does is drives home the point of listening before buying. Cannot stress that enough. Some tracks that weren't released weren't released for a reason. For those who like different styles of goa trance then this might be a gem for you. Happy I bought it to support goa trance, but for me the FOMO was hardly justified. Dance N Dust Bandcamp
  23. Artist: Agrabah Title: Pharaohs of the Galaxy Label: Sita Records Date: June, 2017 1. Visitors 2. Pharaohs of the Galaxy 3. Endless Sunshine 4. The Freeman 5. Destination Moon 6. Schrödinger's Camel 7. A Tale of Blue and Orange 8. Inside the Magic Lamp 9. Cyclamen Anyone else have trouble spelling Pharaohs? It's that f*cking a before o that gets me. All right here's what I know about Sita Records. They don't release a lot of stuff. They are different than the other labels when it comes to goa trance, releasing music that is more nitzhonot or uplifting in nature. Now that may or may not be your thing. I don't know what you're into. Probably some kinky sh*t that you don't want your mom to find out about. Worry not, your secret is safe with me. As I've stated previously it's hard to take Nitzho seriously with all its rampaging melodies and laser kicks. Agneton seems to really enjoy it though. Have you seen his Facebook videos? That dude is hype! Anyhow this up and coming project successfully blends goa and nitzhonot so that it's not a total cheesefest. The album is short coming in at under 60 minutes. Power is there, melodies of course, and I think if there was a soundtrack to Middle East life this might be it. It's hard not to nod your head to this and as usual with this label the sound quality is top notch. I don't know what the bpm's were on Inside the Magic Lamp, but if you're not careful listening to it while driving a ticket could be in your future. Normally I don't like my music moving at the speed of freefall, but this was pretty cool and intense. That said there are tracks where the niztho buildup envelope is pushed almost to the breaking point (Schrodinger's Camel), but those were rare. The wheel wasn't reinvented with this album, but I did enjoy it's pace and the melody work even if sometimes it threatened to go off the rails. Sita Records Bandcamp Psyshop Beatspace
