Review:

 

Debut album from Tristan (aka Man With No Name). This is way different from

MWNN and I like

his new style alot more. Dark, twisted, hard, fast and psychedelic .. just

the way I like

it. It starts off in a raw tempo with 'Fetish', then u got 'Valve' that is a

bit slow but

it has a cool sample. The hard and fast tempo continues again on the next

track until the

end of the album. Best songs are #1 and #8, and the only track i think could

be left out is

track #2 which doesn't really fit in on this album (especially not after

that insane start).

Posford's label has once again put out a nice quality album.

Rating: 6/10

It's no suprise that it's different from MWNN work ...because they're two

different people. MWNN is Martin Freeland and Tristan is Tristan Cooke. I

think you mixed something up about that, but I agree that this is good, even

though I never really heard this. I know Tristan's other works (Purple Merlin,

William, Julz) and they are simply mindblowing, so this one is expected to be

equally good! Sorry for this pointless messege!

Lots and lots of data here. Best for the couch, not really for dancing - even

though it has all the elemnents of stonkin' danceable trance. Good High

Weirdness in the sounds he's created. Trippy.

OK it's been a month and this disc keeps getting better and better. Possibly

the most intelligent psy-trance I've ever heard. How the Hell did Tristan

make such noises?

yeah, at first i thought this album was a bit "strange", and i didn't take to

it quickly. but after actually listening to the sounds in there, i was

pleasantly surprised. this album has detail, and can be quite mindblowing. and

it's layed out nicely too. there seems to me to be a different element of

psytrance in this album. buy it and enjoy it, however, let me just say this is

not like a.p, or i.m, or halluc... or pleia..., this is different party music,

but is good for broadening the horizons (so to speak...hehehhe). 7.5/10 - man

from the atom

True to form, Tristan takes things just a bit deeper. He's broken the mold this

time, and Freak 51's assessment is spot on. Simply put, this is "intelligent"

music. For me, the best trance nowadays is cerebral -- don't just move my

body, move my mind! No steep drumrolls or overstated buildups here. Tristan

adopts the "less is more" mindset and it serves him (and the listener) well.

Don't underestimate the power of "Audiodrome" on the floor, though. Sometimes,

it's the thick, smokey tracks that really work the crowd. If you haven't

already, grab this one. It may not be a wild ride, but the scenery is

mindblowing. 8.5/10

I must say that first time I heard it I thought it was pretty simple music

without any sign of imagination. But then I put it on headphones and I changed

my mind completely! I still think that this is simple and not so much complex

as for example Cosmosis (old albums), Hallucinogen or KoxBox, but it has it?s

own atmosphere and well? charm ;-) Tristan?s music is very minimalistic, but

that is not the kind of minimalism we hear lately (I mean new scandinavian

sound or for example Cosmosis - Intergalactic) but it somehow reminds me of

Tresor records ? Jeff Mills, Cristian Vogel, Pacou, Landstrumm and others. And

by any means this is nothing bad ? I feel this CD brings new flavor into

psy-trance and I always wanted to hear something like it: simple, yet very

powerful minimal groove combined with all those psychedelic effects, noises,

scratches and acid sounds! Tristan is really great at that and the result is

very groovy and danceable, though not very accesible to all the trance freaks

out there I think. There is really no bad tracks on this CD and the best ones

are Fetish, Dreamtime, Perimeter, Martian Arts and Infatuation ? the others

are close but harder to get into (especially Mind Over Matter!). So, if you

like melodic trance then you?ll hate this, but otherwise it?s worth to give it

a try - just look for the CD with the worst cover-art they have in your record

shop ? this surely will be this one! 7.5/10

Tristan manages to create a kind of tension in each of his track that is simply

mindblowing... particularly in perimeter and infatuation, tristan just keeps

you on your toes, brooding over the noises like their his fetish, until

suddenly the high hats and claps kick in and the track gains velocity.

Excellent, Tristan is totally in a class of his own, and even shadows out

simon posford when it comes to producing cutting edge psytrance.

Stop thinking. Start listening. Stop moving. Stop listening. When your

headphones are no longer phisically noticable, Start Listening. Your well on

your way to dicovering a whole new landscape of psy language with

classic-harmonyless, neo-FX-melodic soundscapes. Again, START NOW.

One of my favorite Psy-Tra album. This is the true shit.

I like how Tristan made it not too noisy or simple.

Good combination of various sounds in each track.

Keep on goin, Tristaaaaaaan!

This man is the simon posford of groovy psychedelic techno!!! He can make noise

seem like the most beautifull sounds and creates dark pictures of computer

generated landscapes in dimensions beyond our reach infected with flying

objects that seem like jelly fish but or not, surrounded with mist that is

alive and also the bringer of live in a incomprehensible scale, moon lit

mountains of moving stone inscripted with egyptian signs (how the hell did

that come there!?!), and radiating purple beams seering through the universe.

Or mayby it's just another goddamn good album that diserves a straight 10 out

of 10. Keep up the good work Tristan!!

I bought the vinal but have no turntable- go figure. I had this idea to start

DJing but now I'd rather produce. I got FETISH off nabster- it rocks! His

other stuff is real good, 'small paper squares' is what made me buy this.

Twisted puts out crazy shit. Peace, from Canada.
