Review:

 

Very happy to heard a compil of Twisted Records, but this one is not

Hallucinogen

spirit, even if main of the songs are Simon Posford's co-operation with other

artists. People who don't like a kind of minimalist Trance psychedelic, like

TIP's

cds actually, certainly don't like this one. Mainly of the songs are

"fuzz-and-buzz"

effects with a Simon's touch. As always the Hallucinogen song is great. The

X-dream one is a bit "peacefull" (but good too) compare to the rest of the

musics.

Notice that this cd contain an interactive track. We can found pictures and

informations about artists of Twisted Records, and some (very short) RealAudio

songs. Nothing more than the Twisted Records Site... This compil is a great

minimalistic Trance Psychedelic, but with time and loop-play, it will be bore

you ;)

Chleroux stole my thunder. Nice at first, but has no staying power. Spiritual

Antiseptic is a good track, noisy and hard though. 1, 2, 5 and 7 are horrible

though.

True this album has no staying power. Its a fast horse for short courses...

Confused?... i mean that it has its moments on the floor, and still sounds

pretty fresh, especially the FAT trak, BUT... I puke on the umpteenth release

of RAIN by xdream, and already had Prometheus and Hallucinogen tracks, also

the interactive session was an overhyped wank, with no secret section...

things like this should take you to a website with bonus unreleased track or

something. A demented 4.5/10

VERY NOISY! But not in the same way as "The Digital Dance of Shiva" this one

can really go through your ears and right to the middle of the Brain -9/10

Oki,lets make some clearance here! The first two songs are just time&money

waste! Then it gets slightly better and track 4 is all good. Next song by

Posford and some Israeli-guy is great. I never expect to get disappointed

by Posford. Thats why I like Spiritual Antiseptic. I dunno, what did Posford's

mother eat during pregnancy???? hehehhe FAT is average,nothing to give away

flowers for. oki,some of X-Dreams tendencies are a bit questionable. This song

is well-made,but the melody is too happy and sometimes its good and sometimes

its kinda wierda cheezy. The start is at least very bad.

And now I am pissed off hearing T.I.P is releasing minimalistic dark trance.

What a piss! Most of their new releases are ambient-oriented and what a

blessing for my chillout-times!! The same ppl critizing T.I.P,embraces

german-ultradark-minimalistic-bang-bong-music which doesn't work for me these

days.

No offense, but just what in the hell are all you talking about? Spawn and

Clarity from Deep Fog are time-wasters? What are you not smoking? Those two

tracks are unbelievable. Process and Hallucinogen and the Beast are

minimalistic? Are your speakers made of lego? Those tracks, and everything

Sean Process, Benji Vaughn, and Simon Posford do, are realms of the human

imagination rendered into sound.

 

9.5/10

I do agree with the guy above."Clarity from Deep Fog" is one of the best tracks

EVER made, I wish process and protheus could collaborate together again....

Yeah me too! Spawn is probably the best trance can offer us, pure sound, pure

melodies and killers FX all the way?

Have you just heard how boomy is end of this song? This is Jewel!

On the other hand, i can understand, clairity from deep fog is harder to

understand. But i still think it's a very good track, you'll just need some

time to appreciate to work of these guys. Honestly, have you ever heard such

organic sounds and FXs??

The lad who commented my review: You did not get my point! I did not say that

Hallucinogen,Beast or Process

are minimalistic! I was just commenting the fact that people tend to describe

the TIP's relases as minimalistic and not very interesting (another debate). I

have never in any part of my review claimed any of the songs to be

minimalistic,on the contrary I've enjoyed most of the songs here. And I've

listened to it now (almost two years since I've got) and song 2 is now very

appreciated. But this compiliation has a superior: Demented. Still,it is

filled with Posford-atmosphere (i.e: yeah!) and I still don't like the X-Dream

track. The next guy who questions my liking of Simon Posford should think

twice, cause yes..he is the master of sound (i.e: my God). And to clarify

further: I dont hate minimalistic trance ;-)

 

Up and at'em!

THIS IS A GREAT comp. from one of the best (TWISTED RECORDS WITH POSFORD) i

don't under stan why so many rather have Demented. this is loud psychedelic

with the lovely track from Infernal Machine (Isen't Walter Ego allso Posford?)

But anyway Norturnal Chainsaw Kerfuffle is one of the best tracks on this

comp. but the track from Spawn is also Nice. GREAT COMP!!!! 9/10

Where the fuck does that last guy come from??? what's going on there? Anyway, I

have owned this CD for about 2 years give or take, I agree with the site in

this being a classic compilation. The first two tracks on this CD are

brilliant, I can imagine with both of these tracks the artists in a garage or

something with their friends all playing an electronic instrument jamming and

feeding off each other, each guy pulling a face each time a new sound coming

in and the others just going "FUCK YEAH". it's brilliant for that jamming

effect it has, can anyone else hear it? With this said tr.3 shouldn't be

played loud anywhere, if I was stucki in an elevator with this track I would

vomit after the 3rd play & slip on my vomit trying to rip the speaker out on

the 4th

tr.4 is MWNN remix which I am just not into, I can only take him in small

doses. tr.5 is just Acid Humour's theme music. Spiritual Antiseptic also rocks

as does Fools & Tools, I have since given this CD away as a gift to a friend

who gets much more out of this CD than me, & I bought on vinyl the prometheus

process/hallucinogen single & soon I am buying Beast on vinyl!!! As good as

this CD is, I can't listen to more than once a week!

This is a psychedelic wet dream.

 

A mixture of goa and psytrance this compilation is detailed and for lack of a better word...noisy. I found I appreciated it more when isolated so I could concentrate on the copious amount of effects. Simon Posford and his brand of controlled entropy are all over this where all the tracks are riddled with constantly evolving subplots. Tie a rope around your waist and dive into this vivid journey.

Slipped under my radar. You could basically consider this a Simon Posford album, or Posford and friends. This is definitely some great old school psy.
