It's an album for the dancefloor I guess - not for the listening at

home,car,headphones...... it's not dissapointin - but not surprising either.

You can hear that alot of work had put in to it - it's not obvious he first

time though....

nono.. this album rules.. you just have to be open minded to appreciate it. if

you're not, you'll miss the deeper idea of this album.. it requires multiple

listens to discover the skill put in this. 10/10

This albumn rocks.

Take away everything you know and revert back to a progressive late night dance

floor beats.

Phat and psychedelic nothing wrong there.

But yes I do agree with the fact that it is different.

But having been mastered by infected mushroom you`d expect something a bit

different.

Everything can`t be the same.

I can tell you this cd does rock night time dance floors.

Review:

 

Well... The long awaited album from Lemurians has finally reached me... But

unfortunatly i'll have to admit that i was a bit dissapointed! There are

some positive elements on this piece of plastic, but there's just too many

bad things to make it worth to buy. One thing that spoils things pretty

much, is that all the tracks sounds pretty much the same - very dark and in

my opinion quite boring. The tracks goes on and on with the same kick and

some psychedelic sounds over it. No cool build-ups, no melodies AND no

climaxes!! When i first listened to this album i didn't realise that i had

finished because i was sitting, waiting... just for a small climax! Now...

that was the bad things, let's get to the positive! The first "track",

Lemuria, is just floating psychedelia that grabs you and take you to higher

levels! It may be only 1:14 minuttes long, but it's sure as hell the best

thing on this cd! The production is smooth and nice and the sounds are clear

and quite psychedelic! There are also some quite experimental elements in

the music, especially around the two last tracks, with sounds that kinda

breaks the music into pieces. Weither i like it or not, i do not know, but I

see it as a positive thing when people are open-minded and try new things

out! There are three tracks that stands out as being quite cool tracks. In

fact nr. seven, A Connection, is REALLY COOL! The track is more minimalistic

than the others, but in the end it has something that sounds a little like a

climax, and that makes a HUGE difference! Really powerfull... The other two

tracks i like is 3 and 6! My conclusion must be: This cd is not interresting

enough to buy, unless you like VERY dark monotone music... It could be heard

for it's experimental tracks, but they don't really stand out for me. Final

verdict: 5/10

This album is a nice positive change. First of all, nice little touch with the

track list which makes up a poem. T1 is a nice atmospheric intro to the

album. T2, takes the queue from T1, and starts with a nice rocking beat. T5,

is on of my fav's here. Excellent bassline tune. The next good stand out

track is T7. It is a hectic song, which breaks into a really calm paradise

before going off again. And then there's T9. Doesn't matter where I play it

(at home, car, proper sys), that base line is a bit hectic.

I really like this album. From the touchy feely cover, the tracklisting poem,

to the incredible music, this album is a must have. 8/10

Well, let me say this: there's killers, there's fillers and then there's music,

somewhere in between, that will always do well on the dancefloor. That kinda

music has a decent quality, but misses the absolute gimmic. But I don't mind.

Artist do not always have to produce absolute hits, these guys just make

decent dancefloor psytrance.

Fav tracks Inside you and Making Action

Rating: 7,5/10

 

Greetz!!

all tracks are very powerful with a nice dark atmosphere. many tracks first

build up, then drop to a silent part which builds and builds and then breaks

to a strong climax which sounds soooo goood.. the production is really good

too.. overall this is some of the best stuff i've heard this year ;) score 9/10

I think that the key to this album is the sheer quality of the sound and

production used, and the careful layering of textures in tracks like 'a

dancing snake'. These guys have made some really powerful baslines and some

beautiful sounds, but they perhaps need to take these further. In taking a few

more risks and they will be brilliant, but sometimes it feels like they are

just churning out formula stuff to fill the album (track 2 and the final track

are pretty dull and monotonous in this respect). Still overall, a very good

and thankfully non-cheesy psytrance release 7.5/10.

Lemuria open up this album with a brief violin intro quite dark & emotionnal.

 

A Crystal pursues the dark emotionnal trend of Lemuria, with some percus in the

rythmic.

 

Inside is a nice quite complex track with a big density of sounds during the

track with for example some 303 lines, some proggy rythmn, discret

percussions, a rumbling bassline in the beginning, a synth line a la Hux

Flux, Pigs In Space (Oforia) & lots of echoe or reverb on tones.

 

Track 4 is more dull,mat for me despite the sweeet hypnotic melody on the end.

 

Same remark for track 5 which differs by the presence of a proggy rythmic Atmos

alike & some hints of didgeridoo sounds, more enjoyable.

 

Making Action has big kickin? coppled with a mad triangle. The main melodic

sound is a bouncy distorted one which appears at the mid-break and which depth

tone raises on the end., a good one.

 

A Connection alternates unpolished sequences with sweet synth lines, weird.

 

To The Well, have a nice moment with gothic voices ,except this the global

content is highly weird psychedelic with an insistent feeling. This one

depends a lot the mood you?re in.

 

Plenty of energy resides in Sliding Through with boisterous, sharp & metallic

tones on the end ; also some cool voices speaking or distorted samples

embellish the titlle all along the track.

 

The Keyhole is very funny with lots of cowboy gunshots samples, powerfull &

adrenalistic ; the bassline reminds me a Deedrah?s track on his album Self

Oscillation.

 

Favorites :3,6,9,10.

 

Mark :7,5/10
