Review:

 

A Very Psychedelic and dark album!! There are 2 absolute killers on it (23d

Chromosom (4) and Carpe Noctem (5)), really véry good songs!! Except of that

it isn't too good, it's all the same kind of dark trance so after a while it's

becoming boring... Bom Shankar!!

I don't often dislike stuff that I think I'll like but for some reason that's

what happened here and this album never really grabbed me or offered any thing

new or quirky. Disapointing really. Nice cover though! If you're a fan and

can't get a hold of the vinyl, mail me and we can sort something out.

I am surprised that people even consider this to be a dark album. It's so

bright bristling with hope and joy. The title is Radiated and I sure felt like

it esp tracks like More, Pepsis Wasp. This is the kind of Xdream music I want

to hear more of, the pre Radio day music. No comming soon, or Intercorporal

Stimulator like music here. Witty, uplifting, beautifully structured, melodic

unafraid to use live instrument samples like the flute. It's been 5 months and

I still love it. A great release!

Its strange that this album has two really, really great tunes (as anoebis

mentioned) CARPE NOCTEM and 23rd CHROMOSOME. The rest is good, its really

worth buying but probably their next album will be a better one. 8/10

Nothing ground-breaking here, but certainly worth a listen. "23rd Chrom."

displays some nice changes melodically -- this one's the true "journey" of the

album. Check out "Pepsis Wasp" as well; it'll grab you and shake you around

for awhile. Looking forward to more from Noosphere, as the potential is

clearly there. The liner notes "comic" is a trip. Very amusing...6/10

It sure isn't X-Dream. However, it's worthwhile. 23rd Chromosome is actually

quite old [it appeared on a Blue Room comp from 1996], but still fits nicely

with the rest of the tracks. The disc represents a departure for Twisted

Records: Noosphere doesn't sound at all like a Posford creation, it's pretty

straightforward musically [not that there's anything wrong with that]. 8/10.

This album isn't one of the best side projects with the exception of track 5

(one of the best ever) but it is still quality and quality I can deal with. I

still listen to this a lot even though its been out a while. 7/10

mrsyed is right this album is uplifting not dark. Noosphere have

a really original sound, an outdoor sound which is why this was caned at the

Etnica events. Every tracks a winner but The Seed,Carpe Noctem and The Beyond

are my pick.

it really annoys me the way that the whole world seems to think that Noosephere

are X-Dream!! look in the cover and you'll see two names that ARE NOT Marcus C

Maichel or Jan Muller(although Marcus collaborates)!! just by listening to it

it's obvious that it isn't X-Dream, so why people thought it was is beyond me!!

it's still damn good though.

Noosphere are Niels and Eberhard, two really nice guys with a zany sense of humor.

Ebe is roomates with Marcus maichel, and apparently they borrow kick samples from

x-dream, but i think that's where the comparison ends. They may not be

"groundbreaking" but their music has a deep but subtle soul to it which flows

along, nourishing your mind as opposed to pounding it or tweaking it. In other

words, their personalities are reflected well in their music (but isn't that

usually the case?)

Oh i really like this album... Def. not full on, but very dark, and very

psychedelic as most stuff from Twisted... Favpurite tracks: 1,2,3,5,8,9... The

rest is okay, but not unforgetable... - 8/10

Great ablbum....Carpe Nortem I was listening to this the other day. This track

is from a 1997 blue room release. That would make 4 years old as I wirte this,

and sounds like it could have been made today. excellent!

Carpe Noctem RULES big time.... an AMAZING track, actually, one of my favoite

tracks of all time.... but the rest isn't really that good...I heard Carpe

Noctem first on a Goa-Head compilation, then listened to this CD..I was just

dissappointed because I wanted the other tracks to be like Carpe Noctem, and

they were, but still not close to the magnificence of Carpe Noctem.

I was the primary organizer & promoter of Tribalization, the party that was

thrown with Noosphere in Northern California last summer. I picked Noosphere

for very specific reasons. this album has been quite pivitol & influential to

me as a DJ, Promoter, & all around Psychonaut...as my dear friend Rob

mentioned, their music very aptly reflects thier personalities. I

**PERSONALLY** find this entire album to be not only groundbreaking, but also

vastly psychedelic & inspiring. from the first pulsating measures of Noosleep,

Niels & Ebi sculpt & shape soundscapes lush with life & the depth of a

thousand souls. thier throbbing basslines & poignant kicks blaze a trail far

beyond the outer reaches of known conciousness, throwing in the oddly

appropriate sample from time to time just to keep the listener on his/her

mental toes, usually producing grins from ear to ear...my personal high points

come from More, The Beyond, Carpe Noctum, & 23rd Chromnosome, but the entire

album should be given equal play to be put into it's proper perspective. I

have truly found that this album above all others makes Psychedelic Trance

appealing & inviting to those who would normally not be inclined to partake in

it.
