Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

 

We decided to set up an "official" Best Of 2005 psychedelic trance music topic.

 

Please, write down your TOP 5 (in the right order)! Even if you already did in another topic, please just copy and paste it here!

 

This topic will be closed on the 1st of February, and then we will start counting... Every album on place 1 gets 5 points, place 2 gets 4 points etc... And then we will know Psynews's best album of 2005! :)

Also, we have a very transparant way of voting then, EVERYONE can check that we are honest! :)

 

Thanks alot and we hope to see TONS of replies here!

 

Edit:

 

To make it easier for you, we add these "clauses":

 

- All posters can edit their threads as much as they want. The thread is open until we close it, on the 1st of february. So yes, you can still change your minds.

 

- You can freely post your "best of 2005" list, may it be even longer than 5 releases, may it be splitted in genres and subgenres. We just kindly ask you to add also your Top 5 at the end of your post... like a best-of of your best-of. This way we will be able to make a calculation and present you a chart.

 

Edit 2 :

 

On the 1st of February, around 10:00AM CET this thread will be closed..

 

Thank you for your understanding. :)

2) Various - Unusual Suspects 2

3) Various - Gran Turismo 4 Kicks

4) Mm...

5) Hmm...

 

I mainly bought old nineties' releases last year and can't think of five 2005 releases I think highly of. I'll have a think about it and fill in the gaps.

Guest Elysium

is it allowed to "write down" other music than psychedelic trance? Such as progressive trance/house?

OK, this is only albums, not tracks (as this is what i think youre asking for) and only from our scene, not other stuff, because i think those votes would go to waste anyways..:

 

1. Kino Oko - Lost Entertainment

2. Antix - TwinCoastDiscovery

3. Ticon - ZeroSixAfter

4. Midi Miliz - Non Standards

5. Lish - Free Fall

1. V/A - Apsara

2. Shpongle - Nothing Lasts... but Nothing is Lost

3. Khetzal - Corolle

4. Kino Oko - Lost Entertainment

5. Midi Miliz - Nonstandards

 

As for new releases it was a bit boring year for me. I spent most of the past year discovering 90's :)

It's hard to give a certain border... but let's say that the music at least should be released on a psychedelic trance label, or the group should be trance-related... If there are really many people that want to make a top 5 of NON-psytrance we can maybe do that too :)

Not a fantastic year for psy trance releases but there have been some quality laid back releases. Tripswitch - Circuit Breaker is pure class. Lets have some real quality in the trance releases this year.

what are your top 5 "normal" music albums for 2005? i ask because you have quite a broad taste.

408469[/snapback]

Well, "normal" music might be stretching it a bit... Whereas I listen to most music, I don't purchase much outside of rock/indie and psytrance/goa/progressive... But of the album of 2005 I've really enjoyed and purchased, these would be on my list:

 

* The White Stripes - Get Behind Me Satan

* Franz Ferdinand - You Could Have It So Much Better With...

* Rammstein - Rosenrot

* Keiser Cheifs - Employment

* System Of A Down - Mezmerize/Hypnotize

* Audioslave - Out Of Exile

* Foo Fighters - In Your Honour

 

+ of course

 

* Sigur Rós - Takk
