Top 10 Psytrance albums, of all time

Recommended Posts

healium    9

My list updates from time to time, so I thought I'd see where everyone else's list is right now.. This list changes for me - "The Gathering" has moved up quite a ways, for instance - I didn't like it much at all until about a year ago.. "Cryptic Crunch" has held the top spot for a long time though, that album is just out of this world, nothing else is like it... Sandman "Psychotoones" is a very underrated piece of work IMO, proper psychedelic music.. "The Immaculate Perception" holds the 10th spot, but may not keep it - there are several others in very close competition..

 

The following, which are in order of most favorite on down, are as follows:

 

1. Hux Flux – Cryptic Crunch

 

2. Koxbox – Dragon Tales

 

3. X- Dream – Radio

 

4. Infected Mushroom – Classical Mushroom

 

5. Infected Mushroom – The Gathering

 

6. Midimiliz – Non Standards

 

7. Hallucinogen – Twisted

 

8. Sandman - Psychotoons

 

9. Koxbox – The Great Unknown

 

10. Hallucinogen - The Lone Deranger

 

--------------

 

I'd been thinking about this because, recently, I have been listening to some of the classics, and am just blown away by them - the creativity and originality of some of the older psytrance albums is on another level from most all what I've heard these past few years..

I just have to say that's one beautifully written post.

 

Very sincere and nice.

 

Thank you.

I would have to disagree with putting Nystagmus – The Immaculate Perception on the list and not Hallucinogen - Lone Deranger, Koxbox - Forever After, Blue Planet Corporation - Blue Planet, Dimension 5 - Transdimensional, probably Transwave albums. MWNN and so many others

 

I would also put The Delta - Schizzoeffective before Nonstandards there.

I'm also assuming you are excluding ambient and downtempo otherwise titles like Mystical Experiences and Are You Shpongled deserve to be mentioned.

Other than that your list looks pretty nice :)

Hey there, thx for the kind words Ga2pir!

 

Visine - you may be right about having The Immaculate Perception up there before some others - those ones you mentioned are very good though I haven't heard the Blue Planet corp, Transwave, or Dimension 5 albums... I have Schizoaffective though haven't been able to get into it too much, will give it another try.. There are a lot of really good albums out there, once I get past my top 10 or so it becomes hard to rate them.. And yea, the list excludes the downtempo albums...

I always enjoy a good old "best of" topic :)

 

Just as in healium's case, my list tends to fluctuate like the dow jones average, but from what I've realized throughout the years, my top 5 is quite constant:

 

Pleiadians- Family of light (1999) (Dragonfly Records)

Prana- Geomantik (1997) (Matsuri Productions)

Planet B.E.N.- Trippy future garden (1996) (Polytox Records)

Pleiadians- Identified flying object (1997) (Dragonfly Records)

Tandu- Multimoods (1997) (Phonokol)

 

××××××××××

The honorable mention top 5 would look a little something like this:

 

Jaia- Blue energy/Blue synergy (2000) (Yellow Feather Records)

Etnica- The juggeling alchemists under the black light (1995) (High Society)

O.O.O.D.- A live (1996) (Completely Cabbaged)

Koxbox- Forever after (1995) (Harthouse)

Man With No Name- Teleportation (2000) (Dragonfly Records)

Hehe, Trance2Moveyou - I wondered the same thing, but about the vote for that AP album in 1st(!) I haven't heard Another World in a long time though, maybe I'll give it another spin..

 

I just checked out samples of "Transdimensional" and the Loud album and was very impressed with both - I am going to have to order them here soon I think - I'm dissapointed with most recent offerings in this scene, so I want to know what other people think the true classics are, and I'll add those to my collection..

 

Otto Matta - sadly the Cryptic Crunch and TLD albums you sent me were among those stolen when my car got broke into - fortunately I have copies though..

 

So that everyone knows, Otto Matta/EA is the person who turned me on to Goa/Psytrance - I was reading through Amazon.com reviews for mainstream Paul Okenfold type trance several years ago, and some asshole had wrote a review totally trashing one of the artists (maybe it was Okenfold) I liked, and saying that if we wanted real trance to check out a bunch of these artists I'd never heard of and some genre called "psytrance" - I was like, WTF?! So I emailed this guy and he sent me a bunch of Juno Reactor, Logic Bomb, and other goa/psytrance CD's - and I've never looked back - thanks Otto!!
