Chis Posted January 26, 2007 Share Posted January 26, 2007 well if it makes you so uncomfortable to listen to it, why do you listen to it? When some of my friends practically shove it down my throat? But Derango has presented something new. If you cant hear that maybe you should (Seriously) get your hearing checked. If "stupid" sound fx get so on your nerves what are you doing listening to psytrance? I could say that theres pretty much NO psytrance which is actually psychedelic, that has no sound fx. This one will be forever in my heart! Lovely, strange, and (unless you have hearing deficiencies) wierdly melodic. Look I'm not saying there are no tuned notes, no leads AT ALL on this album. But 95% of it seems to be - again - pounding 4/4 kick, full-on bassline and crazy sound effects. And THAT'S ALL. Now, I'm listening to Transwave - Backfire at the moment. THIS I enjoy very much: melodies everywhere, and a lot of them very memorable. Lots of great arps, 303s, leads etc. Some cool sound effects used SPARINGLY - often during the crescendos and breakdowns. This is the kind of trance that I really REALLY enjoy. THIS is the reason why, when I attempt to listen to dark/forest stuff like Derango, I'm utterly nonplussed. It is the antithesis of what I look for in trance music, and I find it impossible to enjoy. Hey, I'm allowed an opinion, right? Dark psy is overrated. It sounds "cool" played loud but is generally soulless and lacking any depth. The only dark trance I've heard that's worth a damn is Cybernetika. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
