1. Tribalism is the introduction vibe of heavy basses, lush voices and disturbing creatures. They gather up their sound to fly in breaks with a swaying spin on the acid lines until heavy and ultra cool basslines kick in to give you power from the future Buddha’s battle frenzy. It’s truly inspirational the way the track flies across meadow fields of gigantic monsters praying to angels and demons alike to give a real flight. It’s heavy, sturdy and damn nice!

 

2. As time ticks, my mental projection starts to flicker. Rumbling ideas, fanatic sincere. Working elements to heighten the clicks and stumbling kicks. This track takes it’s time to build up the contrast of playful sounds and entrancing behavior. When it starts its steady and controlled, never to lose the flow of synthetic blow. Melodies are sharp, letting the rested become awake. The energy is in control, never letting it go. Attention seeking buildings are being raised, while smaller houses are to be urinated inside.

 

3. Zip up your pants, let’s get it on and dance. Trembling floors are shutting the outer doors. Rumbling basses shake the roof until stars become... Lingering strings caresses the inner redemption, let the diving begin.

 

4. Lunaticicity frightens, rambling stereo noises confuses and hooked patterns with steam full attributes dunks the massive floor with hard knocks and funky flows. The effects are all quirky and sharp like we have become very used to in the sound image of Ka-Sol. The basslines are as always beautiful arranged and cemented only to caress your eardrums so that the mind floats in trance and a feeling of wellbeing while the sharpened sounds sets you off, holding you in a drowsy awaken state of something that stimulates the comfortable bliss.

 

5. Echo felt caves with drums of a decade inside a progressive sphere. Mysterious gloom filters my non existing womb. Rumbling essence of the self effected fashion of monotones. The vibe is floating low like fog across the forestry fields where a weapon of armor is needed for protection and seduction., the techno is mechanical and so are your thoughts, work with me and see the shined elements of progress and love-fest become intense, beautiful and trollish. What else can one control without becoming manipulated and dull?

 

6. Closing in, monsters in-between. Gnarling throats in distant thoughts where gothic flavors haunt the spirits of progressive goadelica from the land of sWEEDen where some has been to see the sacred forest. Riddle me this riddles me that, riddle me a kiss, riddle my hat, oh yeah that’s phat. Where can we go to caress a dove (?) Please show me true love.

 

7. I can hear my inner voice shaking; the kick makes my head clear from fear. Synthesizers glows alongside the wind. Tempo on the rise to take you deep inside a mental case, tempo on the low-flow to take you deeper inside a glow. Aqua like drops smoothen the downward spiral to extended fire rolls. The comfortable kings and staggering rings, oh my... What an evolutional trick to dance the trance. For becoming king is nothing to reach, for who wants to sit with a heavy crown of bling on their swollen head.

 

8. Monsters at large, large monsters. The riddle continues the question remains; what is the answer to a riddle not fully understood, maybe one day I’ll get the ‘Ah, I see now’. Harsh times flips our heads, harsh times gets our shit together, there is no time for joking around inside nonsense, only time for fun rhymes of dysfunctional rights. This is a tiring track yet very soothing like a lot of Ka-Sol’s tracks. I only got his ‘Fairytale’ album released on Suntrip, though I recognize fully his sounds, tempo, haste, smoothness, soothing skills in thrill and damaged attributes of psychedelic realities.

 

9. Inside a circle sits magicians of sound. They realize how gospel influenced their spirit is, they call them self a church, a gathering, a place to worship the New Age Hippie Disco Shit Aka. Psytrance. The spectacle they make, the sounds they manage to wake is intense, controlled and seductive like a luxurious fractalize woman with shiny 'glow in the dark tits', it's like illuminated psytrance, blasting quality with extremely hard nipples, not 'oiled-up whore psytrance'. - Loose flow and tight knobbing skills. This is battle of the hippies, battle of the wise.

 

 

Recommendation: Personally I have known about the BotFB’s for a long time without really getting to know their albums and music. It’s a shame really, because they are giants in this scene of ours, giants to be respected, giants who don’t really give a flying duck about the plastic sound, the overproduced quality - As long as the track works its magic, it can sound as it does. And I agree fully. Ka-Sol, another giant (It used to be a band of three magicians, now Christer is the only Ka-Sol member left, for now...) has made half the album, while the last track is collaboration between them many. I dig this to the max; it’s powerful, deep, driving and really fun at times with harsh strokes. It has maybe a lack somewhere but I can’t point them out now for the mysteries of Masters of Outhouse will have to reveal and unfold before me with more listens and experiences. The sound used in all tracks by both BotFB and Ka-Sol is in total sync, so expect the overall sound to have unity and you might be used to them from earlier releases by Ka-Sol.

 

When I first saw the beautiful artwork by Illumination Design I immediately thought this was some masterly done stuff, and reading inside the booklet I quickly found out that this is a sculpture made by Michael Christian and the picture is taken from the Burning Man Festival in 2007. Anyway the cover art is super, and I love the humoristic yet very powerful edition of the Outhouse with some guy, maybe advocating to the beats about his right to take a trippy leak. Who knows?

 

This release is really well thought out with important details for collectors and DJ's. First of all this contains a 6 paged booklet (fold it out) with beautiful art and some writings. It is also included a DJ-slip which is (unfortunately) rare these days and that is definitely something to appreciate.

 

- Very sexy and colourful in the brightest and yummiest fashion. .. Naughty review .. Very naughty music.

 

 

bOm..!! to the Devils Mind Crew for their hard work and effort in giving us something,

giving us art that will last for years and years!

 

 

And always remember; 'To talk about music is like dancing to architecture'

Hi again people, I would like to add some information that I forgot to mention in my review. This release is really well thought out with important details for collectors and DJ's. First of all this contains a 6 paged booklet (fold it out) with beautiful art and some writings. It is also included a DJ-slip which is (unfortunately) rare these days and that is definitely something to appreciate.

 

Ps. About the luxurious whore sentence (Ninth track), I would like to add an edit inspired by folks from the psymusic forum: I should have thought harder on my luxurious whore comment. its way better with 'glow in the dark tits' and yes this is 'illuminated tit psytrance' with extremely hard nipples, not 'oiled whore psytrance'

- Very sexy and colourful in the brightest and yummiest fashion. .. Naughty review .. Very naughty music.

 

 

bOm..!! to the Devils Mind Crew for their hard work and effort in giving us something,

A perfect way to start another Monday, I could almost get used to the quality these guys bring (luckily I don't)! It ends and starts epic, easily one of the best forest trance albums of the last years. 4/5

hmm I'm sorry to say this but this one is a big dissapointment for me... First of all, there is no evolution in the Upsalla crew's sound, not a single track here sounds like it couldn't have been released 10 years ago. OK, I appreciate when a group stays true to their sound, but in this particular case this sound generated a whole sub-genre called forest trance and you can't help compare this release with other forest trance out there, with the immediate conclusion that it just sounds dated.

 

There are basically only 3 tracks that I got into: Drums in the Deep (which is the most innovative track on the album IMO), North South with a great melody in the second half and the last track, Hangman which has some GREAT morning melodies in there. Otherwise, the other tracks simply sound too dull to me, there isn't enough progression going on to keep me interested, and I can't help think that BotFB and Ka-Sol gave us MUCH better stuff in the past.

 

3/5... sorry guys but you can do better...

 

PS Other than that, great cover design (COVER OF THE YEAR IMO!!).

I have to say I share the same opinion as Lemmiwinks over this release.

 

I've tried to get into it, but it just doesn't resonate the same way as Twin Sharkfins, Fairytale, Ghost Story, etc. do.

 

I think the main problem I have with it is that the tracks do not evolve enough. The climax to the tracks takes too long to arrive and lacks melody.

They drone on and I keep waiting for and anticipating some awesome melody to pop out of nowhere like on Twin Sharkfins, but it just doesn't happen.

I've also noticed there is less layering and randomness in the tracks as there is in previous releases. I find myself skipping tracks half-way through.

 

Don't get me wrong, the tracks are high quality and rather nice, but they lack the sheen and polish of the previous Uppsala releases.

 

The last track (the collaboration one) is my favorite because of the pure chaos and relentlessness of it.

 

All in all, this is my least favorite Uppsala release. Let it be said that this is still far better than most trance put out nowadays though.

Check it out if you are interested, but don't expect a masterpiece.

 

I also give it a 3/5 rating.

Well actually I think this has more depth than some Schlabbaduerst compilations, don't think they really changed their style that much. And you shouldn't compare it with Fairytale or Twink Sharkfins, that's something from looong ago! ^^ Ah well, taste!

All kinds of music transform. In fact the genre that doesn't transform is the dead one.

 

Too bad most of 'em stand still :(

 

 

edit. And if there's a respected group making name and then changes style everybody starts to whine without even giving it a chance. People are such amateurs when it comes to music. I am an exception of course. I AM THE MASTER OF THE (MUSIC) UNIVERSE!

"I have taken the next step in our evolution. I have become king and GOD!!!"

 

After hearing the awesome Digging Mudd album I had to check this out. I wasn't a huge fan of the Buddhas, but they really surprised me with their pre-Twin Sharkfins goa trance. Unfortunately I find this less impressive. They had moments of course with the pounding Drums In the Deep and the shimmering Morron, but if you're looking for Digging Mudd 2 I'm afraid you'll be disappointed.

 

Ka-Sol is a whole different animal. Having never cared for their brand of forest goa way back with Fairytale, they would have to do a lot to change my opinions.

 

They did not.

 

Come to find out I really like music that doesn't make me want to shut it off. The answer to the Riddles is the same for a crying baby...make it stop. I realize these two projects have hardcore followings. I'm just not part of it as I find it an acquired taste. Part of me likes the atonal melodies and chaos, but another part feels it can be too noisy.

That said, Hangman was a wall of sound stomping goa trance. Damn that was wicked good. When it's over you look back and...

Yeah, like that.
