Yeah, 'the day before point' is quite bad. If we assume 'the point' is the

releasing date of this compilation, Alier made his song only one day before

the CD got out. The producer didn't even have time to remaster the song or

anything. ;) Hey! I'm just guessing here! Anyway, a nice compilation, although

I like goa inside 3 much more.

Review:

 

Ok, this still is one of the best compilations I own. It was released only

in Finland, and it hasn't been for sale for years. The reason I'm reviewing

this is that everyone should go and get these timeless classics by any means

necessary (yes, even MP3s are allowed). First track by Phreaky is probably

the best of the best. I mean woah, it's so good and intense it'll blow your

socks off, guaranteed! Truly full-on, truly melodic. Track 2 starts less

hectic and developes into a beautifull morning-tune, superb. Next track by

Martin Freeland is quite possible the best he ever made, uncompromised goa

without a hint of club-cheese. Not too fast, soft and melodic. At this point

you probably think I'm starting to go out of pro-verbs. Well, yes I am, but

it doesn't matter really, as no words can do justice toTotal Eclipse's

"can't do that"! Pure acid killer that'll mess your mind badly if you are

not careful! I think "Bony incus" is the best known out of these tracks as

it's appeared on several compilations, but it's great nevertheless. The

following two tracks by Simon Carman and John Ford (+ Mark Allen in

Mindfield) are catchy and a bit silly, but especially "Touch the sun" sounds

very unique with an oriental theme, really nice. "Let's get stoned and watch

the freaks" is somewhat weaker a track but the sample is arguably

unforgettable. The only bad track on this album is "The day before point" by

Finnish artist Alier, the levels are phukked up and only thing you can hear

are the hi-hats. I can't imagine why this track got released at all, let

alone on this otherwise great compilation. Oh well, on with the good ones,

then. "San yacid" shouldn't need to much of an intrduction, let's just say

it's an essential track to own, melodic tune in perfect Cosmosis fashion.

"Nysos" by Joking Sphinx rounds up the album quite nicely with it's mellow

rhytms and melodies, although it's pretty clearly audible that it was made

ages ago. But at least it has aged with style. All in all, all the tracks

except "The day before point" are a significant piece of goa trance history,

and this compilation is a masterpiece among Finnish releases (BTW, where are

they nowadays? And I'm not talking about overly-weird Exogenic stuff.). Make

no mistake, this one gets a definite 10/10

Yes, Total Eclipse's "can't do that" is the best use of a 303 EVER! (at least I

think that's a 303!) That was the song that made me a psy-junkie forever...

Update: I went to Spinestore in Helsinki and whaddaya know, they had one copy

of "Goa Inside 1" for sale for only 69FIM (~$10US). My suggestion: Go get it

before someone else does!

Only released in Finland? I bought it back in 1997 in Denmark, but it sadly got stolen at a party. Anyway a good comp especially the first 6 tracks. 7.5/10

All of these tracks (except The Day Before Point) are good and some are fantastic! I would start with San Yacid and Paranormal Activity and then go right to Let's Get Stoned and Watch the Freaks. Followed immediately with Low Commotion and the Bony Incus remix. That's five absolute killers right there. Spiritual Transgression and Touch the Sun are very good (though not on the same level as those previously mentioned). With Can't Do That and Nysos bringing up the rear.

 

That's a pretty damn good comp right there! 9 above average tunes and one ugly friend. But packs of girls always travel with an ugly friend. Makes 'em feel better about themselves. Besides someone has to hold their hair back when they're chucking into a toilet.
