This album is REALLY GOOD, particularly the First CD :-)

Best CD 1 Tracks are 1,3,4 and 7 (Track 3, The Furnace, is one of the best Goa

Tracks I've ever heard !!!)

Best CD 2 Track is 5 ... Why did they choose the name "Violent Relaxation" ?

Because CD 1 is violent (pure psychedelic trance)

and CD 2 is relaxation (it's more Ambient than Goa) :-) Rating : 9/10 (because

there is 2 CDs)

Excellent album ! Good tracks on the first are 1,2,3,7,8,9, and my personal

favorite is Space Clinic. I like Blue Galaxy a lot, with a really nice melody,

and also this track is a nice transition between the 2 cds : Not pumping goa,

but not ambient. On the second cds all tracks are good, I prefer Espanolizer,

but I'll never understand why they use an electric guitar in the middle of the

track :(

This is an okay album, but only okay. Sixteen Total Eclipse tracks are rather

hard to take in one go. Like a lot of bands, the sound doesn?t vary enough, it

gets boring after a while. There?s some good stuff here but you?ve probably

heard the good stuff already on compilations or whatever. Good value for

money as music goes but a little more variety would have been nice.

I agree with psychedelic gav... very similar styles on both seedees make

listening to either disc in one go a personal issue of contention. Its

forgiven by the fact that it is really old now though, and their newer trax

have all been much more impressive. My fave track on the whole thing...

one of my best goa trance cd's. really liked the differance between the 2 cd's.

the first is more energetic and has more andrenaline in it (except offcourse

for track 9 which is well... wow!!!). the second cd you can say is on the

border of ambient but not quite. my favorite tracks on the first are

1,3,5,6,8,9. and on the second, well ... in one word PERFECT.

to hear it.

Well I had to buy this one finally, and oh my god.. it was really worth it! The

first cd contains very good, old skool psychedelic trance. Each track is

really good filled with melodies and baselines. The second cd is more

ambient-like stuff, great chill-out music. These two cd:s make a brilliant

album, really worth buying. Score 9.5/10

Though not so good as their previous as their previous album this one still


Both the violent and relaxational part make you trip away. This is 100% quality

GOA with some unforgettable tunes on it.

If you hear this you ask yourself how they could make such a horrable album

like "access denied".

CD1 is a good TE stuff. On the other hand, the cd2, except the first trax, is

really boring and disappointing, a total eclipse of inspiration, bad thought,

poor and empty. Fortunatly, they stopped to make Ambient, it wasn't their key

point. Thanxx for my ears, TE!!! So I give it 6/10 thanks to cd one.

On Cd1 (goa, except blue galaxie which sounds more ambient)),i don't like track

4, favourites are:1-2-5-8-9.

On cd2 (ambient),only the last track is bad. 1 or 2 more tracks could have been

put on cd 2, the running time reachs only 62 minutes.

This double cd is very good, rating :8/10

After halluciniogen, the first goa i've heared. They made me love psychedelic

trance. Lost the CD, so i MUST have it again; memories. At Sola Luna festifal

in greece this summer(2001), they played one of this album; i thought i was

going nuts!!!!

I was never really into some of his new tracks, and i finally got a copy of

this cd just now, and i must say.. I'm VERY impressed. This is old school,

and its kick ass old school! No wonder this is mentioned as a "classic". I'm

only on track 4 disk 1 ... so you must feel my joy of this cd. 9/10 so far.

maybe i'll come back later and review the rest, if necessary.
