  1. Space Tribe - The Future is right now MFG - Project Genesis Tandu - Multimoods UX - Ultimate Experience Tim Schuldt - Single Collection Planet BEN - Trippy Future Garden Cydonia - In fear of a red planet Infected Mushroom - the Gathering
  2. Astral Projection, indeed. Lame and pretentious. I recoiled from it 8 years ago and I would even more so today if I hadn't become so used to it. Hallucinogen is rather silly too actually. Asia 2001, yes, whats about Asia and 2001? Transwave... thought it was such a bad name the first time I saw it, but has by know heavily associated it to good music and since long forgiven the name. X-Dream, never liked that one. Infected Mushroom... how I hate that name. California Sunshine It's only when one stops to consider these names separately that they once again appears as it did the first time. GOOD NAMES (or rather, names that I like for some reason): Bypass Unit Cosmosis Green Nuns of the Revolution Etnica OOOD (the most aesthetically pleasing!) Blue Planet Corporation
  3. That's easily: The Infinity Project - Mystical Experiences Probably followed by Shpongle - Are You Shpongled?
  4. The interview was very embarrasing...
  5. 2 Unlimited - No Limit I was seven. It was amazing, a revelation!
  6. I have actually never known any female who really liked or was interested in goatrance. The girls I know in the scene are more into the modern stuff and care less about goa. I've wondered if this truly is quite general, and then why it is so. I still hope to one day meet a girl who love it as I do.
  7. Ozric Tentacles - Eternal Wheel One can hear rather plainly that Shpongle was not without influence from these guys...
  8. Correct, I forgot the first part of the sentence. Love that track btw, rarely deranged.
  9. Phreaky - The Second Moon "A new kind of... brrrain cell!"
  10. I've read seraph's promotions of this particular track over the years. Since we seem to have quite similar tastes in goatrance otherwise, I really tried to like it. But failed. I can't really find it any interesting, and neither could those friends I have played it for. Best track ever: Pleiadians - Maia
  11. I forgot to mention whats so bad about the kick. Its the fact that it almost totally lack bass, which make it sound really silly.
  12. Ultraviolet Catastrophe is together with Sonic Mandala my favourite album of Space Tribe. I'ts not great though, and I do not have a detailed opinion about it since I listen to it so seldom. The Source Energy and the title tracks score highest on my board. The title track does however suffer from a terrible choice of kickdrum, one that renders the otherwise totally insane track virtually unplayable in a dj-set as far as I see it. I really detest that kickdrum. It´s the same thing with Zero Density by Transwave, a brilliant track partly ruined by an awful kick. The best track ever by Space Tribe is easily, I say, In the Hands of the Shaman. As is the case with a bunch of other artists, Space Tribe made his best work in collaboration with Simon Posford.
  13. One Love for sure. Am I the only one who thinks that Portamento is not very good? I do love the atmosphere of it and the long sample is one of the best ever. But, unfortunately, it uses the same melodic line over and over again through the entire track (except for another equally repetitive period at the end). I get bored.
  14. These aren't exactly as specified, tracks with mostly beats and 303s, but nevertheless great 303-dominated goa tracks. Green Nuns of The Revolition - Cor!, Megallenic Cloud, Ring of Fire, Klunk Cosmosis - Gift of the Gods Electric Universe - Luna Overdrive Chi-A.D. - Myoptic Utopia Shanti Druid - Insectattraction Somaton - Fearful Symetry Prana - Dervish (Spiral Rmx), Scarab (Green Nuns of the Revolution Rmx) <- INSANE The Secret - Pagan Dance These though: Gamma Loop - Eclipse Solar Quest - Georges Allniter Lochi - London Acid City DJ Hardware - Mad Cows on Acid
  15. Pleiadians - Maia (Electra, Asterope, Alcyone, Time Dilation, ... ) Etnica - Starship 101 (Nice Toy, Full On, Vimana, ... ) So many totally awsome tracks. No other group has put out such a quantity of supreme-quality goatrance.
  16. The first CD on Jikkenteki - The Long Walk Home contains some of the better chillout stuff I've heard.
  17. No, he doesn't fail to disagree. Hence it's understood that he disagrees. Great line, but how does it relate to the scene?
  18. Transwave - Helium Transwave - Hypnorythm Planet B.E.N. - Trippy Future Garden GNotR - Rock Bitch Mafia Power Source - Cosmic Waves
  19. I agree with most of the previous post, and is outraged that such a beautiful piece of art never saw daylight as a printed album. Has there ever been a better candidate for resurrection by some label that's into goatrance? Hardly. We have already had the great pleasure to see Backfire and Transdimensional arrive in our mailboxes, and why not this one? It would be true service of goodness putting this forward. And I can hardly imagine that the sales wouldnt cover the costs. But if it that is actually the case, then it's really a pity.
  20. I'm glad to see my response shared. It does often quite perplex me that these two tracks has not recieved more attention than they have.
  21. My stomach twists on those poor grades. I always much enjoy reading your high quality reviews Jon, but hey. I honestly think Antonomasia is one of the most awsome tracks ever, insane psychedelia excecuted with stunning perfection. No other track messes with my head in such a powerful and lovely way as this one. The break at 2:50... incredible. The whole track is incredible, and the almost two minute long buildup to the "peak" at around 8 minutes is just unbelievable. And it just continues to get better, at around 9 minutes I seldom know what to do with myself out of fascination. And yet I have heard this track hundreds of times. Possibly the second best piece of music ever made, only Maia I could readily put ahead. And its for sure miles ahead of any track out of FOL. And then Different Species, what a composition, what a masterpiece. These guys where so knowing what they were doing, this music-making is Posford quality and beyond. Constantly morphing, storytelling and advancing. This track containes so much, and it never failes to deliver. Sure its not as mindblowing intense as most of the material on for example IFO, but the sheer perfection of it... When hearing this I'm often struck by just that, its diamond perfection as an epic goatrance track. I find both of these MUCH more impressive than for example Lunar Civilization and Pentagone. I respect your opinion though, and its quite well argued as usual. Tastes are tastes I guess...
  22. In the subject of best album, my vote falls for IFO. As i've said before, I shall probably not ever again encounter a song better than Maia. Yet IFO has several other tracks almost in the same legue as this number one. Second best, probably Twisted followed by Trust in Trance 3. Had Crop Circles ever made an album, I'm sure it would be among my top5. Top10 albums (not in order of priority): Astral Projection - Dancing Galaxy Astral Projection - Trust in Trance 3 Cosmosis - Cosmology Cosmosis - Synergy Dimension 5 - Transdimensional Etnica - Alien Protein Hallucinogen - The Lone Deranger Hallucinogen - Twisted Pleiadians - IFO Transwave - Helium (the tracks have awful kickdrums though, a pity) Contenders: Doof - Let's Turn On GNotR - Rock Bitch Mafia Transwave - Backfire KoxBox - Forever After Tandu - Multimoods I've seen you make that mistake before. Though I think you know it's To Sirius, right?

    Cosmosis - Synergy

    I was fortunate enough to find this second hand for a reasonable price some years ago. Great album, possibly on my top10 list of albums ever. One can hardly stylishly recognize Cosmosis on Synergy as Cosmosis on the awsome Cosmology, but why bother when it's this good. All tracks are good, great or excellent. But if I'm asked to pick three favourites, the it's Spores from space, Higher Access (the best one) and Moonshine.
  24. I recieved my copy within two days of ordering from psyshop, always fast and smooth between Sweden and Germany. I have listened to it several times since and this is truly a wonderfully composed album, each track a treat of its own. The D5 style is rather unique. I wonder, where else to turn in search for exceptionally far out, full-on melodic goatrance if not to D5? That would probably be to Pleiadians or nowhere, asking me. The D5 style is very epic, travelling and hypnotic, with an ever present sense of purpouse and connection. This is goatrance close to its core. I have not listened to this album nearly enough to write a full review, but the tracks that are most strikingly engaging and beautiful to me are Omega Centauri, Deep Space 5D and Harmonic Convergence (which by the way might be my favourite track-title ever). Though as suggested by Jon Coccos (excellent) review above, the album has an overall very high quality, not failing the listener anywhere. Second Phaze was never nearly as expensive or difficult to obtain. Me myself scored it on Music Stack for little more than 20$, and I have seen it thus available more than once since. Amazone, and of course ebay are other possibilities. Good luck finding it.
