Time Traveler of Trance "Yeah, I got a 247...young Bieber in distress. He's no longer a belieber...I repeat no longer a belieber!" Canadian ass wart Justin seriously wants to know why the f*ck this album sucks. And for the first time ever I agree with him. It's got all the makings of a great goa trance album. 1995. Nothing bad ever happened in 1995. Yeesh...f*cking Santa died? All right, f*ck 95, I was a drunken mess singing Alive by Pearl Jam in my lumberjack flannel and gorging myself on Cheeseteaks. The cover still has the color of sunshine and an ancient symbol that screams hippie bullsh*t. Where have I seen that before? AHHHH!!!! F*cking nazis! I don't believe in anything anymore. To say this sounds dated is an understatement. Clearly the sound palette is limited and the ideas are as well. Did they put a cat meow on Xyber Siva? Sounds like they were just noodling about and decided to record it in one take. It's not until the final two tracks that we actually discover signs of life. That said those last two tracks are pretty great. But the rest fall far short of what a goa trance album from 1995 should've been. And please don't hand me the "it takes multiple listens" line or "they were limited by their equipment" nonsense. Plenty of great goa came out in 95. I've listened to this more than enough times to know it sounds old and raw. Sometimes that can be a good thing, but this could use a remake. But hey some call it a classic and would be happy to sell it to you for $100. But for me this was a huge disappointment.
