Review:

 

Many people will feel happy this album finally hits us. I picked it up while I

was looking for the thirteen skulls compilation, it was an instant buy as I

like 3dvision style and dj lestat. Anyway, Talamasca is under the guiding

voice of spiral trax though even the font of their name breathes 3d vision.

The music also has a lot of that 3dvision pace and power in it, the stuff that

makes us dance in general.

Well, lets get on with the trax. Track 1 is not the best Talamasca has ever

made I must say, but seems to grow on me when I listen. A heavy bassline picks

up the track at the beginning, accompanied by a nice hard bass and it really

hits the spot there. When your ears have recovered from the first ticklings it

becomes clear that this is indeed a simple but effective track. It sets a dark

atmosphere and has some nice tribal drums in it. At 2.06 some nice melody

enters, but lets not get too far in detail. We might be boring some of the

readers here. Well the this track keeps building up and doesnt really change

much over the minutes. Typical break at 4 minutes makes way for a new

approach, but it kinda stays on the surface as a track. Hearing the damn same

bassline too hard is getting on my nerve as well. It ends kinda abruptly.

Let's hurry to track 2...

Track 2 has another dark start, typical Talamasca stuff. The bassline, as ever,

is simple but effective on the dancefloor. Some nice samples are being thrown

in this kinda positively repetitive beat, the melodies are dark and nice at

nights when there's nothing scary about the way home. Again the 4 minute limit

sets a break and a sample, its getting kinda predictable here... I must hand

it the melody at 6/7 minutes is very nice. Again, not at all an impressive

ending.

Track 3 starts with some voices muttering ( is that the right word, prolly

not). Percussion is nicely panned around a bass with ( yez again) a simple

bassline. This track has more pace/ drive than the previous tracks and really

picks it up. Too bad a really ugly synth comes in at 1.30 which is obviously

too damn hard. A break at 2 minutes is nice when we had 2 around 4. I'm happy

this uplifting song holds more than the previous, nice melodies and breakz.

Good uplifting 'builder' track. This will be a stomper at any party!

Track 4 starts of with some nice choirs, very subtle... Good choice of voice

sample and another one of those basslines. the only problem with the bassline

is ITS ON MY RIGHT SIDE( for the most) all the time, shouldn't it be in both

speakers equally? At this point in the cd Talamasca really takes the groove

and puts fairies in your coffee ( or something like that). Again a really good

stomper, more of the good thing. A 4 minute break ( how original) brings us

some new darkness under a steady simple bassline. The full-on part enters at

the very end of the track :D Lets start jumping this is getting much better!

Track 5 Hear it for yourself, its fucking brilliant and I'm getting sick of

typing in-depth reviews of every track no-one's gonna read =)

Best track so far, typical dark Talamasca style!!! Reminds me of 'Program

Change' a lot

Track 6 'The Old school', Lestat forces another great track down our auricular

receivers. A nice evolving gem. The only thing that bothers me is the 'clap'

at 3,5 minutes, but thats just me being a pain in the ass. So far so good. The

Full part at 6 minutes is outrageous and will get me dancing in public

midwinter buttnaked ( like anyone cares...)

Track 7 When Time is Simulated in the next track, you wish you could loop the

simulation. Unfortunately it has a simple synthline that goes on all the time.

It gets picked up by another instrument later on, very much in the style of

eurotrance people. A shame with such a good beginning,

Track 8 Why not.... well Lestat had another one up his sleeve so WHy NOT? A

kinda slow song which also has a very repetitive synthline in it, which really

annoys me. Good vibration, but irritating lead.... One of the less amusing

tracks.

Track 9 is a dub song and its very good, thats all I can say ( I have blisters

on my fingers from typing now)...

Verdict: Don't expect anything else than 3dvision artists have done over the

last 2 years and you have a nice cd/lp in your collection!! There are less

interesting tracks, but I'll even appreciate those in the future and I guess

so will you! 8/10

This is exactly what I expected from DJ Lestat, and that's a good thing. This

is just good full-on psychedelic music, with a darker flavour. This isn't

anything earth-shattering, but it's more of the music you and I love from

Talamasca. Psychedelic Knights is my favorite track, with dark harmonies and

freaky/spooky synth lines... it's fantastic. My least favorite track is

Magnetic Fields, but I still thought it was groovy and I loved the 303 lines

after an intense build up. I'm impressed with this album, and it's a great

listen. High energy killers! 9/10 for classic Talamasca!

i have listened to this album and it's one hell of a good release.

if you don't like this style of music, don't listen. plain and simple. but

if you do like this music, and the older stuff produced by lestat, you will

love this album. 10/10

My godness !! What a great fucking killer album from Lestat. i just listen it

twice and there are already so many songs that i can't get out of my mind !

Waiting for it for a very long time, i heard some very very good tribal to

dark psy and full-on morning trance, we just have what we wanted, and may be

more.

Thank's Mister !

Diversity is the quality that separates a good label from a truly great label.

The Spiral Trax label group is one of the best out there right now. It is

refreshing to see that Anti can release a killer full on album like this

Talamasca album as well as a brilliant progressive album like the Matenda

album within a few weeks of each other. If anything, this album proves that

Anti has firmly grasped the plot more than most other label managers out

there. Keep up the good work!

ALright, well i think the album is slightly fluffy in comparison to previous

Talamasca releases.

I still give it a 9/10 BOLENAT ;o)

Yet more adequate full-on stompers without any sign of the cheese brigade. Its

dark, its pounding, its underground but about as exciting as a VW Beetle

rental car. The point; its reveauls its strong points and moreover its

weaknesses in only a few spin sessions and subsequently ends up in the pile of

other unimpressive stuff released lately. Come on, LeStat, compose more killer

stuff such as -the Hunter becomes the Hunter- or at least try to be a tad more

adventurous next time..7/10

All I can say is "TALAMASCA RULES" and this album is no different. Insanity and

The Old School are my favorites. 9.5/10 for Cedric. Great Album. Little by

Little on the new SST comp is also worth checking out. Great work. Still

hoping to see Talamasca live one day. I'll cross my fingers.

cedric anyway is the best dj ever , the only one who got this "crazyness" from

the beginning...and the album he did for anti is exactly what all the

talamasca fans are waiting for!!!!full-on , but not stupid minimalistic

music...you can ear cedric is a real musician , i rode somewhere he is a piano

player , and that is what trance is missing...real musicians...real melodies ,

not stupid ones , and real dj's!!!!!we got the man:TALAMASCA!!!!i give

20/10!!!!!!!!!

Well Cedric shows once more his excellent musician talent combining it with

great bass lines that make people crazy... Congratulations to him and to

Spiral Traxx for this album. This is high quality music, although it is full

on style Spiral Traxx should be glad about it,its not a matter of style but

quality when you release something... Well done Anti!

Okay....this album kicks ass!!!! I must say that i again made a great choice to

buy this album. All tracks are killers, filled with nice melodies and a bit

dark atmosphere (of course not every song). This is different kind of

Talamasca than the ones i heard few years ago, but I myself don´t mind the

change. Anyway this a great release from Spiral Trax and I think all goa

lovers should have this one. Also remember that here in Finland we know how to

party too!!!!
