Space Tribe - Heart Beat

 

Posted Image

 

Artist: Space Tribe

Title: Heart Beat

Label: Spirit Zone

Date: 2002

 

Track listing:

 

01. Heartbeat

02. All Senses Vibrating

03. Tweaked Eyeballs

04. The Acid Test

05. R U Enlightened

06. Lights In The Sky

07. What's The Sound

08. Reality Or Make Believe

 

Review:

 

'Heartbeat' is the yearly ritual that is a new Space Tribe album. Apparantly

living in the middle of Australia's nowhere has some advantages; Olli seems

rather blind towards any persuasive progressive and minimal trends. Result:

only the fourth quality 604-ish release this year imo(others are

FractalGlider,ElectricUniverse and Cosmosis, CHI-ADs promising 'EarthCrossing'

should have been among this short list). Although 'Heartbeat' will not

directly revolutionize the genre, Mr.Wisdom revitalizes the previous ST

efforts with more consistency, no-more-really-disturbing samples and a true

love of the acid synth. The track with Electric Universe is already a classic

and the other tunes are not far behind.'Heartbeat' is above all abundant proof

that a torchbearer for quality 604 can do more than moan, cry wolf or

surrender to persuasive trends; Olli simply delivers his acid goodies and does

it with a sheer class as only the few true icons can...9/10.

Very nice album from internationla shaman Olli Wisdom

Old style, no innovation, and this fantastic acid sound. I love it. My

favourite tracks are: Heartbeat, The Acid Test (with Borris Blen from Electric

universe) and the last one, Reality Or Make Believe. My rating 8.5/10

Not bad!!! This reminds me of older goa with simple repetitions of strong

synth lines that are of a pleasurable nature. Some sounds are very strange

and weird, but at least it's interesting and unexpected at times! Good

percussive layers with nice builds and breaks as well. On a whole this album

has darker melodies, but I don't care much for some of the spoken samples

here and there. I don't see their relevance to some of the tracks, except for

track 7 'What's That Sound' where it's almost deliberately frantic sounding.

Cool! My favourites are 1, 2, 7, 8 for good variation. Nice production

quality too, so my final verdict is 7/10 8^)

the most common complaints i hear about space tribe are... (1) the style never

changes and (2) too many samples. i've always agreed with the second, and i'm

beginning to agree with the first. after reading the positive reviews i

expected something new. but... this is exactly the same!! there are no new

sounds, and it's just the old ones used in less creative ways, it seems to me.

don't get me wrong, there's some good stuff on here, but i think many other

space tribe cds do the exactly same thing but better. and a lot of times too

many samples ruin what would've otherwise been ok songs. unless you're a space

tribe collector or haven't heard them before you can live without this cd.

best tracks: 3 and 4. all others are below average. 6.5/10

Best full cd of Space tribe for me so far! I really liked the others but this

is in my sense of music just a bit better. Harder then before and still

full-on, sounds new without copiyng a style too much.

Good work 9/10

Great full on CD hear. Great melodies, not too high BPM, great samples (maybe

too much), etc... the guy has it's own style... For sure must of the tracks in

this CD fit on many DJ sets...

Really good music, all musics are good, with an special attention to Heart

Beat, All senses vibrating, Acid Test and r u enlightned. But all tracks in

this CD works.

Go and buy it, it's not "what the people are hering on the dancefloors right

now", but is high quality good psychedelic trance...

Buy it, it works, specially if you don't have any space tribe cd. 8.5/10

I didn't like it. It gets kind of boring after the third track. No interesting

sequences, layers, sounds or samples to keep your attention. Nevertheless it's

not that bad, I liked the basslines and the beat rate 6/10

YAY!!! Now that 2002 is gone, I proclaim this BEST 02 release!! EVERY track is

a masterpiece!! Space Tribe is like good wine: he ages gracefully. Whereas his

previous albums were a hit or miss for me, mainly because there was too much

randomness in them, this one is just perfect. The quirky structures

transformed into beautifull progressions. No minimal here and no directionless

acid lines blew over your face GMS style either. Like I said, just perfect!!

OK,if I have anything bad to say is that Oli could've added a bit more melody

(I mean TRUE melodies, not just full-on loops) in other parts than just the

last 2 minutes of his tracks. But hey, with all the shit we've been getting

recently I'm not complaining. Best tracks : Heart Beat, Tweaked Eyeballs and

Acid Test 10/10!!!

This is a very-very good cd, a perfect combination of goa with acid full on.

It's not that good as Shapeshifter but it has great tracks.

Best of all The Acid Test. AMAZING!!!!!

8/10

indeed, bassline is very motivating and the space tribe sound is better then before, not better then 1998.

 

nice work...

Think this one was a little bit of a step back. The tracks weren't bad especially for 2002, but they are far from masterpieces. You wanna tout Sonic Mandala? Fine. The Ultraviolet Catastrophe? Sure. Shapeshifter...you bet. But this is a definite fouth place finish and it ain't even that close. Thumping beats and acidic at times it's a good album, but like I said a step back when comparing it to some of his previous works. Sometimes goa sometimes psy it's not as developed and deep as those albums I mentioned IMO.

 

And no I don't count 2000 O.D., The Pope album, and the Future is Right Now...that stuff was nonsense.
