  1. @BASS-O-MATIC -- Thanks for telling us about this release. I wasn't aware of it before. I like the visionary, cyber/futuristic approach and yes, let's enjoy it for what it is. The new album is psytrance, not Goa. The first track (New Dimension) has some catchy elements. Same with the second, though the six minute climax could have been more expansive and fulfilling. The third track is okay. Track 4 (Alien Artifact) builds to a catchy part halfway through that put a smile on my face. I just wish the last act topped it. Track 5 (X-Files - Pleiadians RMX) is cool, like a party (psytrance for
  2. Interesting timing.. Today I felt drawn to hearing their disappointing third album again. That's when I saw on YouTube that they released a 4th THIS album not too long ago. Pressing play (past intro), the opening track has such a repetitive beat, baseline, and synth that I was turned off until the promising sound/melody segment halfway through. Then they completely botch it by taking the music in a completely unexpected, disappointingly direction. This is not where I desired the song to go, and it's repetitive! In short, this album is not on the same level of quality as Sun Spot a
  3. Great job. Thank you, and to the artists and labels. These threads help awareness on so many good releases!
  4. I liked Xaminist's Initiation. Wow it's been 10 years. I didn't know he released an album ("7") in 2016. Thanks for the notice Manuser and the review! I like Out of Time (currently streaming it here: https://xamanist.bandcamp.com/album/out-of-time A New Day builds to the warm, complex sound delivered throughout the album. It's unique, fairly progressive, and psy-influenced. Act 2 is little more than a brief transition to new, interesting terrain. Simple but effective. I was hooked from 4:40 forward. DNS (OSG Remix) is more energetic and bouncy. Again, unique (catchy) melody wor
  5. Wow this thread caught fire since I left. I respect that some of you like it more than others and vice-versa, and speaking candidly.. I thought Antidote, despite a beautiful intro and nice melody work at 3:42 grew forgettable in the third minute. Some catchy melodies and changes in the 5th+sixth minute (mentioned above), but overall I found this too safe, generic, and conventional. Mission Adept is a step in the direction I wanted. It's more Filteria-esque, mad energy. The synths don't stay stuck in your head but they're catchy! I go back and forth with the phone-esque effect (me

The Constellation Of Aries Median Project is Sergey Petrenko, a fairly new artist in Goa-trance. I enjoyed his previous album, In the Depth of Space (2017). So when I saw MP had a track called Life Line on Suntrip's compilation, The 50th Parallel (2018), my curiosity peeked. I thought the song was one of the best tracks on the compilation. Constellation (2019) is very melodic
  7. Wow what an album! Yes! And YES!!!! It's even better than when I heard it last several months ago (posted above). How the shit?! Finally someone new grasps what we love about Goa and totally reimagined some of the best elements. A LOT of them! This album is sooooooo good. I've rarely felt this way since writing reviews as a teenager. It's the ANSWER to what's been missing from a lot of Goa now days: HEART, FIRE, & SPIRIT. People put a ton of MIND into art, but not always spirit. Spirit is more expansive; you're in the zone, channeling fluidly, ever connected and yet free to
  8. Antic-- Thank you so much for the review and everyone else who contributed to this thread. I'm just discovering it now due to the reply count. The album is just something else! If YOU feel that you haven't heard a Goa album that made you feel like a kid again in decades (at least eliciting old if not new memories), press play and roll with it. This MUST be heard on good ear buds, head phones, or sound system. Increase setting's quality to 720p. Full album steam
  9. Looking forward to the upcoming release schedule. Old skool MFG we never heard?! Sounds almost too good to be true, especially if some of those versions and unreleased tracks are from the time of New Kind of World and Project Genesis!!!!!! Median Project's Constellation album btw is such a high energy cosmic release. It's very dance friendly. Finally an ascensional, climactic release. Suntrip is expanding their types of Goa Trance, nice to see. The artist's Life Line song was my personal favorite next to Sykespico's if I had to pick two from The 50th Parallel compilation. Beyond that, a
  10. I think some Goa/E-Mantra fans missed this album. It has punchier synth work than some of his other albums IMO and showcases some of the more gripping songs I've heard from the artist in a while. The album's more varied in sounds than Nemesis which used higher pitched synths (at times) that reduced that album's replay value for me. Stapanii Timpului (wish it was easier to pronounce) has a smoother, more electric/Goa style and feel. The songs are closer to 7-9 minutes too and I like that. They know when to end. 1. Rusalka has grown on me. The first few times, I thought it sounded emotiona
  11. Question, On this Re-Remastering of the Lazarus Rising (2019) album, Track 7 is Genesis. But on the original Lazarus Rising album released in 2016, Track 7 is Thee Audssey [Continues] [The Faithealers Remix]. What happened to the original Track 7 ? Did it not fit with the epic vision they had in mind, or did something not correlate? Any ideas? I'm excited to hear Ad Vitam Aeternam since Lazarus Rising was/is amazing!

    Track list please, otherwise nice work! Vimana In Dub Deep East (66 Dub&Rola Remix) Triptonite Dub That Kind of Love Back to Vegas Burning Sands Gilly's Voyage (Dub Mix) Astral Way (Dub Mix) Screaming Butterfly (Dub Mix) Desert Journey For me the album doesn't cut it, HOWEVER -- Back to Vega is really worth hearing, buying, downloading, etc. I wish more of the album was on par with that track and beyond. Deep East (66 Dub&Rola Remix) is fairly average sounding IMO. Triptonite Dub is more interesting in the second
