Well ... these Tracks are quality Tracks, but not really interesting Tracks

(Except Track 2 !) ... and the end of the album is more Ambient than Goa ...

moreover Tracks 2 and 6 are nearly the same !!! Rating : 3.5/10

a lot of original sounds...but with no links between them.

That makes a boring Album.You might appreciate it 4 its complexity but with no

enjoyable melodies, that will be a hard work!

5/10

10 times less good than the first one (Delirious)...

 

Too Cheesy melodies..i'm so sad..Ofer have a great potential!!!

 

The morning song could have been a BIG BIG track...but the melody ruins

everything...The 3 firsts minutes are awesome!!!

Hmmm...Some tracks start well - good drum programming, big dark bass, but after

about 2 minutes they get ruined by silly cheesy melodies that sound totally

out of place. 2 out of 6 worth a play though in an early set though.

2.5/10

I like this album much more than the first one even though it does not provide

more mindf**king music. It is not very innovative but I feel the maturity. The

sounds are phatter less strident and accessible. It is also more varied but

that does not make any less cohesive. Love to hear more of this.

Delirious is in my opinion a much better album. Only good tracks on this one is

Raw and The Morning Song.

Too bad cause I know Ofer can do much better music than

this.

While some of these tracks don't go over well on the album, wait till you see

'em live! Oforia's PA is nothing short of mindblowing; his tunes seem to

acquire a certain edginess and extra punch. Perhaps it lends some other

perspective to the album. I'm a great fan of this one. Don't pigeonhole the

Israeli sound without listening to Ofer's catalog of music. Well done...8/10

Great album except I paid $25 to see Ofer and I waited for track number three

and this guy didn't play it what the hell is his problem. Anyway the album is

great until ambiant tracks come on then its time fot the switch to another cd.

7/10

Well worth it for the morning song alone. I agree a bit heavy handed on the

chill side BUT Ofer is a composer and a fucking monster at that, all his work

is pure platinum.Lovely.

Although track 7 is a retro electro shit I found this album a very good

psytrance piece, the art work is beatifull. Track 1 is one of my favourites as

well as track 3, very good for the dance floor. 8/10

I'm a die hard Ofer fan... Deirious, Pigs in Space and Multimoods were

incredible... but this really isn't a very good release!! I like the ambient

tracks at the end, but everything before that is kinda cheesy!! Now with that

said, I don't dislike this albm, I was just seriously let down by it!! more

Ofer please!! but not like this... 5/10

I have to disagree with most of the people who have given this an unfavourable

review.It sounds pretty mature to me, and a quite acceptable progression from

the last album.Doesn't have to be banging to be intense!

It reminds me in places of the great Robert Leiner/Source Experience.Wonder

what he's up to these days.

Sorry Ofer, I hope nothing is broken.  There are certain albums that stand the test of time and sound good 20 years later.  Classics.

 

This is not one of them.  This album is rife with long, sleep inducing stretches of full-on lethargy.  Three tracks in it's really just white noise.  People cannot seriously compare this to Delirious, it's nowhere close.  One was a steak and the other a two day old Big Mac.  Clearly with the release of Read More he's still massively talented and he's had a hand in some legendary releases, but this one is certainly not a jewel in his crown.

Indeed MdK, can't disagree with your review. Not a memorable album. But I share most opinions about The Morning Song. It smells and stinks cheese but I just can't dislike it, quite the opposite it must be one of my favorite of all time when it comes to cheesy tracks.

Listen to it and you'll see what I mean!

The Morning Song is one of the best nostalgic/melodic/melancholic/morning tracks out there and Voice Of Delusion is definitely top 5 Goa ambient material.

Raw is cool, but incomplete. The rest is pretty forgettable.
