  1. Hope is never totally gone... Someone uploaded it on Youtube I have no idea how he got the track but here it is: Many thanks to him! Probably 15 years I have not listened to this track... @draeke he is from Norway apparently https://www.discogs.com/artist/4169227-Strangepork
  2. Nice list, I could not vote since my sample size was way too small to choose enough albums (KOB would probably be my top choice). By the way Ajja - Spira Mirabilis is not a downtempo album, starts with a track around 140 Bpm, followed by another one at the same speed.... and so on. .. Nice album.
  3. Good track! Looks like there are 4 dots (strange, why not 3?) + 1 dot on the first "i", while the second "i" seems to be a capital letter according to Discogs, so the answer should be 5? Listening to Capsula - Sense of a Drop: Superb psychedelic downtempo.
  4. Two years later I would say Bad Dreamer is my favorite track, very impressive track especially the final melodic part.
  5. Two years later I have to review my mark to 6/10 (who cares anyway ) the track I liked the most at the beginning got me bored (Exostatic) but actually I find Exostatic 3rd Mix much better and certainly more friendly for my poor ears. There are annoying moments here and there, like this high pitched sound in the last track. A bit of a mixed bag but still applause the effort to produce something pretty much unique in the scene.
  6. What a great old school track! How did you find this?

    V/A - Breathe

    I had bought this a long time ago. These two tracks: 04. Deeper In Zen : Look Into The Mirror 05. Sea Of Arrows : The Border are freaking good! The Deeper in Zen track is a psychedelic dance-floor masterpiece while Sea of Arrows delivers something more laid back and trancy. My two favorite tracks here but the whole compilation is top quality.
  8. Only 1 listen but I found this album remarkable. These guys are in a different league. Return of the pistolero was a pleasant surprise A new Juno Reactor album and it gets hardly noticed on good old Psynews .. 2018
  9. I wish there was more key changes It is either a way to support a melody nicely, or surprise the listener. Tromesa (Nowina) surprised me big time the first time I heard it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a13V6z3my_Q
  10. 394 tracks is still a lot. As far as I am concerned, I think this is normal to be that picky. I listen to a lot of music, and probably really like 5% of it, at best. The Aquasphere track is in these 5% by the way :)
  11. It seems that the track Extraterrestrial Intelligence has slipped under the radar of many last year but it was one of my favorite goatrance track. Of course I'll be more than happy if the whole album is in this style! @antic604according to Google, both expressions can be used.
  12. Wow forgot about this track! An alias of PUSH that is, so lovely old school: Plastic boy - Twixt:

    V/A - Xpla-Nations

    One of my favorites in the series. There is enough variety to enjoy, thumbs up to tracks by Fuzzion, Violet Sky, Typhoon feat Deedrah. I already had a hard time to listen to any Absolum tracks, but this one takes the cake in a bad way, noisy stuff all the way. Terrible. The last track is pretty nice, but my preference still goes to the Violet Sky track, the nice surprise of this compilation. Listen:
  14. Nothing revolutionary but very nice track! Liking the slower pace
  15. TIP Records 1. Amazing Tales from Outer Space 08:20 2. Mad Robots 08:06 3. Out of this World 08:41 4. Drop The Bomb 08:09 5. Electric Kool A(c)ID Test 07:43 6. LSD Party (Kicking In) 08:36 7. LSD Party (Meltdown) 08:12 8. Joint O’Clock 07:40 9. Party Planners 08:11 Mad Tribe is a collaboration between Space Tribe and Mad Maxx (Olli Wisdom and Max Peterson). The modern TIP records trademark is in full force and well executed. The thick bass, powerful kicks, banging psychedelic atmospheres and science fiction vocal samples. I must say the opening track is all you need to know about the sound but I was particularly amazed by track 2 and its crazy psychedelic depth. From here on out it gets difficult to comment much, simply because the album reaches a high standard and never drops from it. I also very liked the two LSD tracks. It is a strong album overall, even though I would be happy with less vocal samples. No surprise here and nothing too subtle, but simply highly professional psytrance that should please all the fans of this sound. To buy > https://tiprecords1.bandcamp.com/album/amazing-tales-from-outer-space
  16. I was also into Tartarus, acidic track that reminded me an improved sound of old Shakta. Since we are talking about 2018 releases, so far my preference goes to Lectro Spektral Daze (from what I have managed to listen this year).

    Joujouka - Joujouka

    I do like a lot of percussions in psytrance but for some reason this album did not age well for me. It sounds very dated and too simplistic, the production could be better, even though it was made in 1998. A lot of passion in this album with potential here and there, but something missing for me to really appreciate it.
  18. @Agneton nice track, never heard before, thanks for sharing. Here is a superb melody (sounds more serious and a little darker than usual uplifting trance):

    Joti Sidhu-Punktuator

    Pretty nice stuff, aged very well considering it was made fourteen years ago.
  20. Agree with the other guys, it's mediocre. The first 4 tracks can be skipped, Weird Sick And Twisted has this irritating vocal sample, and the collaboration between Cosmosis and Shakta is very disappointing. The compilation gets interesting from track 5. As mentioned previously, it is not by Process & Slide, even a half deaf psytrance fan can recognize here the sound of Tim Schuldt (track Mummy Machine). It's a catchy production and really launches the CD. Logic Bomb - Thoughts Crossed Back is pretty nice (more technoish than usual but still melodic), and the Astral Projection track is the highlight here, very energetic and possibly one of the most underrated works from the band. Track 7 and 9 are fillers for me. Rating: 5/10.
  21. Removing the vocals of Komakino - Man A Mars is removing what made the track memorable IMO. Without the vocals, it sounds just like a generic trance track like hundreds of others. My 2 cents anyway!

    Acid Rockers - Mind Set

    It's a very remarkable album. High quality stuff:
