Ticon - Mirage (Iboga CD97) Tracklist 1 Mirage 7:38 2 Out Foxed 8:18 3 Tripticon 6:24 4 Entropy 8:30 5 Stimulant 8:10 6 Behind The Wall 9:17 7 Violent Serenity 8:27 8 Ether (Album Edit) 8:06 9 Useless Loop 4:51 I was not a super fan of Ticon back in the days; I prefered SonKite, but I have to say this new album really stood out *by far* amongst all the non-goa music I listened to recently. Mirage is a blatantly progressive album. It's not as experimental as other Ticon productions, although it has very well put touches of electronica, and every track sounds like it's crafted with love and is an instant catch. The album starts with an eponymous, cinematic track, with pretty intense breaks, almost giving goosebumps. The sound is crispy, alive. Nothing else to say, just enjoying. Out Foxed is more classic, TIcon fans will like it. There's a nice trancy, then acidish break that makes it really enjoyable. Tripticon is a nice progressive track. Honnestly we're not offroad here, but it's well done, balanced, and not monotonous with its nice melodies in the end. Great. Entropy follows up where Mirage left. Cinematic, aerial, catchy, scratchy, with a solid groove and a superb production. It's like a storm over a summer evening. Awesome track. I like how Ticon manage to make such carefully crafted tracks sound simply enjoyable. If you were looking for more experimental tracks, Stimulant is for you. It makes me think of Star Sounds Orchestra for instance. A rock solid kick/bass couple, ethnic influences, original instruments. Wow. You felt it coming since the beginning, Mirage also has an electro layer. Behind The Wall at last unveils it completely. Just sharp and great! Violent Serenity is more classical. It's not something you've never heard but it completely deserves its place in the album. Ether is yet another of these cinematic tracks that Ticon 2016 can make. That's the little sister of Entropy and Mirage that they can blindly play on a morning! Useless Loop is at the crossroads of progressive, electronica and house. A smooth finisher. To me, Mirage is the best progressive album I've heard in a long time. Go get it!
