Review:

 

This CD has got to be Dado's best work yet! Reload takes you through the

entire spectrum of psychedelia. From the supercharged dark opening title

track and "Far and Away", to the more melodic sounds of tracks like "Purple

Unicorn" and "Land of Freedom", to the more minimal (but still tweaked!)

introspection of "The Final Swirl", Reload scores big. 9/10

Yeah pretty conving stuff from mr.Deedrah as usual. The pumping opener Reload

sets the tone for a psychedelic groove fest of fast beats and infectious

melodies. Land of Freedom is a bit too cheesy for my liking but the rest is of

no nonsense familiar quality. Maybe a little too familiar in cases cause this

1 won't win the price for originality. This is not as adventurous as Deedrah's

excellent Cypher side project but nevertheless a powerfull collection of

polished floorstompers. Impossible not to get those booties move. Highlights:

Reload, Far and Away and Liquid Skies... 8/10

First, I'd like to say thank you Deedrah. As more and more old masters are

choosing the easy path of minimalism or experimenting with turkish folkmusic

or whatever it's great to see that someone is still ready to put time and

effort to create melodic goa that just takes you away to another place. So

into the album. 1. Reload: Hard, fast, stomping tune filled with melodies,

simply excellent. 2. Purple Unicorn: If you couldn't keep yourself in the

chair during the first track, now is the time to sit back and relax with a

slower and more dreamy track. 3. Land of Freedom (2001 Mix): Nostalgic trip

back to one of the highlights of the last album of Transwave, remixed to fit

this album perfectly. 4. Fireball: Less melodic, more funky track, propably

not bad, just not for me. 5. Far And Away: Picks up where Reload left, hard

and stomping with chorus-like soundscapes in the back and crunchy synth-lines

in the front. 6. Something Is Wrong With The Machinery!: Slower track again,

quite short and nothing special. 7. Gangsters: Somehow spooky track with lot's

of echoes, small minus from the corny voice samples. 8. Liquid Skies: Very

melodic track with hypnotic bassline and softer kickdrum. 9. Ananda: Extra

melodic bomb with very hard kick, really good. 10. The Final Swirl: Slower

track to end the album, very deep bass and quiet melodies. After only few

listens I can't yet say if this is a masterpiece like Hypnorhythm or Helium

but in this exhausting desert of bass-hi-hat-and-an-occasional-weird-sound

this sure sounds like a refreshing oasis. 9/10

I don't really like the style... Lot of cheeze synth. Not enough twisting-psy

effects and synth-abuses. I think it's more trancy than Psychedelic. But it's

fat enough to make you dance away. 6/10 for the effort.

Best track is reload.

It may be slightly cheesy but once you get over the cheese this album fucking

rocks, i really like Gangster, Reload, Far and Away and Fireball. The first

piece of decent straight up trance music i have heard in a long time,

brillient production.

This is a departure. I don't know if I like it yet. It's got nice new-style

percussion, but lots of old-school melodies - realised with new keyboard

sounds. Some bits are waaay too cheesy, but being an old goa-head, I dunno,

kind of takes me back to a more naive place. I didn't like Gangster at all,

the samples are awful. Liquid Skies and Ananda are definitely throwbacks, but

not bad for that. The Land of Freedom mix - well I think he should have left

well enough alone on that. We don't need another Teleportation effort in this

world. I think I'll keep this one and play it only when no-one's around, wave

my hands in the air a little, give my head a shake, stab a mime through the

heart with a glo-stik and put on Kopfuss Resonator again.

I really dig on this album... Very good stuff.. I wouldn't call it goa or psy,

well Reload is pretty full on, but the rest is more progressive, which in this

case actually isn't bad.. I really liked Deedrah's first album and all of

Transwave's stuff, so I expected this to be good, and it didn't disappoint!!

8/10

crappy crap crap... jesus christ dado, what happened? cypher kicked ass, so did

signe furax, synthetic, good bad + ugly, transwave stuff is really good too.

But this?!? paul van dick couldn't get any cheesier, go back to question mark

and hit the studio man, because you can do a lot better.

You know why everyone's reviews are all over the place? Because this album is

all over the place... because Deedrah is about being all over the place. The

last album kicked off a big departure in what could be called 'psytrance' and

so does this. The downside is that of course not every track will be killer.

Still, he stays away from the minimal (good!) and the track Reload kicks so

much ass (perhaps the best track released this year...still runs through my

head all day...) that it is a shame not to own it!!! Purple Unicorn, Far and

Away, and Liquid Skies are also damn good. 8/10, don't expect the same old

shit, this guy does it differently. And to those who cry 'house' or 'club' or

'progressive', try listening to those genres, this is nothing of the sort.

The beats stay true, and the psy-effect is there. Its not minimal psy-techno,

and its not goa(evolution, how much crack do you smoke??), but its good.

My opinion... Dado made a mess of this release...

I just don't get it. I like minimal tech-trance and progressive stuff (I'm

openminded you see). But this is crap. I give you one advise... listen to it

carefully before spending the money on this 'commercial'(in my opinion)

release...

I bought the vinyl and guess what, the track which seems to be the greatest

(reload) isn't even on this album.

sorry Mr. Deedrah but this album was a big mistake. 1,5/10

I've the vinyl version so reload isn't on it. So the best track is land of

freedom. The other tracks or not good or have a cheesy sound for me. I haven't

made myself!!!

Dado makes some very strong music............ this is one of the better

releases of the year so far.... this is the kind of stomping music that makes

one move in an outdoor party. and reload is well on its way to the psy

classics section ... great track.... the rest of the album is very nice as

well... altitude 1600////

After listening to this many more times, it just sounds better and better. The

melodies in this are beautiful -- NOT CHEESE! Cheesy trance has basic major

harmonies, whereas in this album, the harmonies are much more intelligent, and

the progression of melody is hard to predict, but simple in it's entirety.

That's what melodic is all about, and Dado does it all so well. There is a

good mix between melodic and psychedelic in this album -- something to please

everyone. GET THIS ALBUM!!! 9.5/10
