Well i'm on a huge goa kick lately, mostly old school stuff and i'm wondering what album you guys consider to be goa in it's purest form? For me Juno Reactor - Beyond The Infinite and X-Dream - Trip to Trancesylvania hit the spot for me... But theres gotta be a lot more good stuff out there. Whats the perfect goa album for you?

if I meant to be picky, I'd say that Juno Reactor & X-Dream are perfect examples of psy-trance, not goa-trance. Goa for me is Astral Projection, Dimension 5, first Cosmosis & Electric Universe albums... More melody, less weird noises :)

To me the perfect goa album is Hallucinogen - Twisted. Very boring choice, I know... But besides stating the obvious Cosmosis - Cosmology is also very good. It's been ages since I last heard that one, what a shame!

One track that pops into my mind is

 

Dimension 5 - Harmonic Convergence :rolleyes:

 

Ups thats a track and not an album, but if I had to choose a track it would be this one :)

 

ED: Just listening to it now! OH MY GOD! Its divine! :rolleyes:

Good choice! A lot of great goa tracks on this one starting with Genetic - Transmission & culminating in Hallucinogen - LSD! God Paul used to have good taste!

repetitive, steady rythms, long sweeps, every sound in its place and a little bit dirty too

just the way I like it :)

One Track: El Audio - Keyboard Cowboys!

 

I had the melody in my head since the Antaris Festival 2001 but neither knew the name of the track nor the name of the artist, the only thing I knew was that it is for me the one really representative track for the good old times when I got infected with the Goa virus between 2000 and 2001, when there was still the raw original sound and not that ugly full-on stereotype. Recently, I dug through some old DJ mixes while cleaning up my hard disk and suddenly found that track again and just heard something with "cowboys". Pyshop's search function is very powerful, there is really only one track with "cowboys" in it and that was the one from El Audio. The CD is sold out since long time but I could get the track through www.musicdock.net.

 

Ok, the Spirit Zone Best of 100 compilation package with 3 CDs in it (Goa/Prog/Chill) is also an excellent sample. Add Astral Projection also although that was before myself becoming really interested in Goa trance music.

No, the :3 smiley means it was a tongue-in-cheek statement, possibly to the time where I actually did that.
