pretty cool n interesting. the sounds do tend "become familiar" ...as in it

kinda sounds the same, but it maintains a very nice "seperateness" that saves

it. frikkin awesome cover too. 7/10

like always with Transwave, no bad tracks, only good ones.Helium is much more

rich and various than phototropic and the transwave style is really enjoyable.

For me, the transwave style is mainly a strong kick, with a growing melody

and an impressive explosion at the third minute of the track.Some will say

it's really classic and that the trax are all the sames, but I really like

this kinda classic goatrance, so be sure that if you like any track of

transwave, you'll like all their albums.

conclusion: sounds often the same but also sounds good.7/10

Good ! Lies somewhere between Hypnorhythm (their best) and Phototropic. Not

oustanding but well done. The intro song is cool. Best track is Trashish, very

powerful, sounds almost like rock, but no guitar here ! The Rezwalker and

Biolab Epilogue are also pretty good. 7/10

i'd like to upgrade my score to 8.5/10, after giving this cd some intensive

psychedelic attention. it's really very good, and i recommend it to any

trancehead who reads this. maybe u'll have mixed feeling in the beginning, but

when this cd grows on you, you'll find yourself wanting to listen to it more

and more. and the more u listen to it, the more you realise the attention to

detail in this album. excellent ¦-D

i definitely agree with atomikelf.. this cd needs time, after lots of

listenings it only gets better and better :) still one of my all-time

favourite psychedelic trance records :) these guys really have their own style

and sound..

excellent album! i cannot believe this is so old, because it truly doesn't

sound like it! every track (apart from the intro) is incredibly uplifting and

psychedelic. Transwave really have a sound of their own (especially the kick

drum!). my favourites are the 2 'Rezwalker' tracks...i can't decide which is

the best! 'Zero Density' is also quite a killer.. intense stuff! 10/10

Transwave is the best Tranceact together with Etnica/pleiadians..they really

have their own sound and the melodies are great each and everytime...this

it...Zero Density that melodie nad than 303 sound!!!this is psychedelic trnace

at its best10/10...can´t understand why they splitted up...PLEASE REUNIT

GREAT, JUST GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's what Goa is all about!!! I almost cried

the first time I listened to the little melody on Rezwalker... and on the

remix it's even better. Actually, the first time I listened to the album, I

put the last minute and a half of the Rezwalker (London live Rmx) on and on

for about 2 hours!!!! It filled me with joy for the whole day!!! Now, every

time I feel miserable, I just put on Rezwalker and I feel good again!!!

Wonderfull!!!! 9/10 (the first song could have been longer...)

Amazing album, with undoubtedly the most powerful first half of an album, ever!

Prologue, followed by MDMA, Journey into the Outerspace!!!!, Trashish, then

the almighty Zero DensitY!!!...These five songs strung together in this order

put this album among the top couple goa albums EVER made. The rest of the

album doesn't quite have the same magic, but is still vintage Transwave.

Rezwalker is the highlight among the the last half of the album...Get this

album RIGHT AWAY and never let go!!!

Wow!! This is one of the albums that got me into trance back in 96, it was one

of my first trance albums since I had only listened to trance for a year or so

then. It's just wonderful and spacy and magical and it means a lot to me

because it makes me remember those surreal outdoor parties we had back then.

What a shame what Christoff eventually devolved into. For a brief magical

period though, Transwave was Special. This record is worth 9/10.

All the album is good, there's no weak tracks and this is probably till now the

only album without bad tracks.

Special mention for track 3-7-8-10

I don't think the black thunder mix is better at all. The best part from

rezwalker is certainly that great melody from (5:30-6:19) and it cant be found

in the black thunder mix.

definitely deserves the highlight. best transwave cd, and one of the best cds

of 96. i consider the first half of the cd to be the strong point though, if

it were to continue in that vein it would get 10/10. unfortunately, some of

the later songs get more monotonous and don't keep you needing more like the

first ones. another complaint is, a few of the songs seem to end to abruptly.

but awesome melodies, awesome acid sounds, some really good old school stuff

here. 9/10
