I do agree that travbrad1001 deserves our collective thanks. Moni, on the other hand, I think deserves a kick up her backside.

 

She is not the only busy person nor the only one with a convoluted life. If she commits to something, then she has the responsibility to do it. Favour or no favour.

 

Or if it is indeed an impossible task for whatever reason - then she should have at least the humility and honesty to come clean with us and inform us that she is unable/unwilling to do it.

Nice work travbrad1001. Thanks for the list.

 

 

Guys, be fair to Moni. She'd done a lot of work in the past. I agree that it's July, 2008. It took too long. She could have communicated that she's been busy, and that the list may take longer than expected this year, thus encouraging one of us to do her work if we couldn't wait. But people here choose to wait. Naturally no one gets paid for this. We all invest our time to write reviews, post comments, and take part in what we connect with. Blah, blah, enough rambling.

 

About the list... I expected Younger Brother 2 and Asura Life2 to be at the top on the downtempo genre. Asura really kicked ass last year, and YB2 produced some superb tracks too, especially the last. And I'm a little surprised to see Solar Fields - Earthshine so high on the uptempo list. I thought Transwave - Backfire and Xenomorph - Demagoguery of the Obsurants would be above that, but I'll take your word for it. And I don't mention D5 because it released in 1997 so I imagine people were generally investing more thought into new releases, modern work, basically, but I couldn't help but acknowledge Dimension 5 and Transwave. Mindsphere - Inner Cyclone was up there too, Goatrance wise. It would be amazing if that artist produces a follow-up album for Suntrip Records with superb mastering, production. I didn't mind the mastering, but a handful of listeners seemed to have a problem with it.

 

V/A - Twist Dreams was good, the lower end of great IMO, but the least strong compilation by Suntrip to date. I'm amazed it scored #3 via uptempo. I'll definitely say that Goasia - From Other Spaces was one of the best releases of the year, though the last track could have been better and several others too. My expectations are so high with Goasia because he's produced some tracks that are just :wub: Naturally, tracks 3, 4, and 9 were worth the album alone.

 

 

Oh, and Penta... his wiz-bang style is getting old. Fast. If his next album doesn't have more songs with substance, super songs, I'm done buying his work. I thought Horn Please was good. My friends didn't. Penta's Portuguese Abduction album released 6 or so months after Horn Please, and deserved "most rushed album by a famous artist in Psytrance" IMO if ever such such an award existed to be given. Yes I thought Time Jump and Andes were two very cool tracks from an album that didn't deserve to make the list, and didn't. But around that it was more or less formula rehashed and mis-mashed. And the last track on Portuguese Abduction was a slap in the face. It wasn't cult B or even C art, nor funny or enjoyable.

 

Worst song of the year goes to: Neo Cheesy by Penta on the Portuguese Abduction album. What was the point of having that on the album? Other than that I like Penta. But his fans pay 15-20$ to buy great work and since he has built a respectable connection associated to his name, it would be cool if he strengthened that connection with stronger songs, less rushed and/or similar sounding albums.

+10! He won that award, just followed by nr 2 wich would have to be the whole hypersonic album.. Wich is crap from beginning to the end.

It's cool that you participate, but you know that your vote won't be counted, right?

 

Anyway, you can start thinking about 2008's vote.

Next year, someone who actually has the time to do it should do all the tallying and collating should do it.

 

No disrespect to Moni, I'm sure she's just been too busy to do it & an internet forum should not be her priority but I think someone else should do 2008. It's October and the year's drawing to a close.
