Review:

 

From what I understand, the psychotherapists of PeLinPaLa decided to increase

his medication and the result is this album. It seems the meds caused his

rhythmic personalities to take over. Clear, sharp crystal crunchings are the

main ingredients of the pieces of cake on offer. The mood range is morning and

evening. First comparison that comes to mind is the new Logic Bomb. [Joke of

the day]: when Finns decide to be experimental, they go formulaic ;). The

energy of the tracks is mainly suited for delicate grooving, but obviously

that varies according to the dancers' attitude and mood. Well, that's about

it.. minimal review for a minimal album :P.

Can't really add anything here, other than: perfect stuff. As EyeC says...

clear, pure sounds & melodies, and indeed does that track 'Des Pudles Kern'

ever rule!!

Check out Space Elevator on Goa Head Vol. 17 also. Really great stuff, I hope

they keep it up! They could well become one of my faves!! 9/10 for this

effort..

A good solid start from the Whomen! These guys have made more experimental

stuff on other aliases and now have returned "back to square one" with a more

progressive and middle european approach on psychedelic trance music.

Some of the trax like "Wunderbaum" and "Clone collective" are more night

orientated full on trax which will keep your feet stomping and others like

"Piece of cake" and "Standard procedure" accompany the first rays of the sun

and make you smile. Last but not least there's a wonderful chilled track "Easy

does it" with dub elements spiraling slowly up to a mellow progressive

groove. I like this album. It's stylish trance with a little hint ("Wormhole")

of it's northern origins. 13 productions has licensed Whomen's tracks to

different compilations like Compact's Fata morgana and Goahead vol. 17. In the

future there will be trax on the new Mpdqx Trance of scandinavia comp. and

Twisted's backroom beats vol.2 comp. Not a bad start at all ! : )

Well, its the best album i've herard this year so far. All tracks are aweosme.

At last something mostly different comparing to other albums. "Piece of Cake"

(especially the last 3 minutes)and "ETFM" are the best of all tracks. Great

psy-morning tunes, ala old Human Blue style, but much better. My verdict is

10/10. Nothing more, nothing less.

I'm kind of disappointed. I really liked the Pelinpala album, it was

different, and I found it to be extremely psychedelic. This is just standard

generic morning psy-trance, very formulaic. Actually, they have done a very

good job with the formula, but still, this doesn't even touch 'My cd has

landed on the next door neighbours dog'. If it was the desire of the

pelinpala guys to make standard stuff, they did a great job. I would give it

10/10 if I liked that stuff. But I like stuff that's weird, so this only gets

a 6/10 from me (very high for standard stuff!).

I was also dissapointed with this album after reading such positive reviews,

but there is nothing special or unique about any of these tracks. They are

nice, but nice just doesn't cut it anymore. Not to say this album is bad

whatsoever: it's pleasantly pleasing, but I've given it a few listens and have

lost interest already. It is very "formulaic" as was well said by Cubensis.

though.....

was hoping for some raw finnish power with this one.

yet another clubby sounding release from the 'psychedelic community'? :-/

just thought i'd add a few more words now that it's had time to soak in a bit

more.....after my initial dissapointment began to fade and i accepted this

album for what it is (nice scando sounding morning progressive with moments of

cheesyness) i actually found myself able to enjoy some of the tracks on here

quite a lot. there's no doubt some of this stuff played late morning at an

outdoor party would set the dancefloor alight.

my favourite tracks (the least cheesey ones!)are 1,3&6.

still a bit dissapointing, but only because i think this could of been

something really amazing (super twisted!)

Highpersonic Whomen (AKA Haltya Project), with the surprise album of 2002, that

arrived in the last moments of the year. People! We're talking about the album

that puts the psy into trance again, as a good friend of mine said. A diverse

musical experiment that has it all: originality, liquidizing music that will

take you to another dimension, great atmosphere, stories, feel and emotions.

In short, good psychedelic trance the way it should be. HPW are breaking and

melting the borders of the different trance genres, which is just as good as

this music was always not about genres. Its all here, the more pushing

Wunderbaum & Clone Collective, the killer hit that will always get the floor

spacing- Des Pudels Kern, with one of the best breaks I heard the last year,

the dripping liquidish E.T. FM & Wormhole, the hypnotizing Standard Procedure,

and the beautiful penetrating melodic twist of Piece of Cake. And in the end

it's Easy Does It.

My next mission in life: a beautiful sunrise in nature with few hundred more

beautiful people and a HPW set.

 

Bottom Line: If you want to feel what psytrance is really all about- buy this

one NOW! Favorites: 1, 2(!), 3(!!), 4, 7(!!), 8.

so ,I got the cd , but I expect for something much better ! it is nice album

but things get repeated themself too much.. anyway , good release and very

good quality..

I liked track 3, 6 (very good production here !)

as a whole album it wasn't work so well, I didn't like many things that get

repeated themself , but it i really good album !

I enjoyed this purchase!

Overall this album get 8.5/10 and one of the better minimal music I got..

disagree, this album offers a great deal of diversity, going from full-on to

groovy, slightly progressive to wonderful morning tunes.... I thought no

tracks really sound too much alike, unless quite a lot of artist albums (which

doesn't make them bad, just boring :P). Absolutely highly recommended

I listened to it, and it's an awesome piece of work. 10.1/10

 

This album was re-released for free (in digital version, with new artwork and remastered) in 2010.
