Psynews "Best of the Noughties" poll


Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure that this was an upbeat release :wub:

 

I knew somebody would call me out on this one! :)

 

It's my favorite Solar Fields album and I couldn't fit it into my uptempo list so I nudged it *wink wink* into the downtempo hoping nobody would notice. :ph34r::lol:

Guess I'll have to replace it with another Solar Fields album...

It's awesome.

 

+1, adding to that it is in a category of it's own because I haven't heard any other release that sounds like this. Even so, for me this album is without a doubt the first that pulls of the combination of high bpm and superb melody-work in a distinct high-tech psytrance context this well. In fact, I'm gonna listen to it again just now :lol:

My copie of Koxbox - The great Unknown also states 2000 as release date...? Does this one count or not because some say it was released in 1999?

They still count in the 2000's releases though, I see no reason not to include if you think they'd be good enough

 

Re-releases on the other hand, maybe not, but DAT records releases unreleased which is a whole different story. Likewise you can't vote DAT in a 90's poll since they weren't released back then.

 

Koxbox was 99 btw http://www.discogs.com/Koxbox-The-Great-Unknown/master/29038

 

 

To be honest I'm really surprised to see so few mention Tetrahedron overall, o well.

Uptempo:

1. Dimension 5 - Second Phaze (2000)

2. MWNN - Teleportation (2000) (if that one counts)

3. Ra - 9th (2008)

4. Khetzal - Corolle (2005)

5. Cosmosis - Contact (2002)

6. Protoculture - Refractions (2003)

7. Logic Bomb - Unlimited (2002)

8. Talamasca - Musica Divinorum (2001)

9. Filteria - Daze of our Lives (2009)

10. E-Mantra - Arcana (2009)

11. Talpa - When the Somberness Becomes the Game (2008) (in case teleportation doesn't count)

Nothing is impossible :P strictly "the best" might be difficult, I have also tried to incorporate which have meant the most to me (influenced ect.), makes it a bit easier for me for me ;)

It's just a bit of fun, guys, not the Council of Nicea. If you can think of ten or fewer albums that stand out for you then write them down.

Indeed, that's a good perspective, I'll check releases that are attached to my favorite Goa parties I visited (memories)

True, but Statistics have to be a valids as possible, otherwise it's useless. But I do get your point! Posted Image

 

sorry for the off topic btw...

I have a more specific, and I believe difficult challenge. Thanks for the great topic Rotwang aka The Mod Scientist. (That is a compliment!) Check out "Top 10 Goa/Psy up-down/dark-light/left-right/hard-soft/minimal-full-on/inner-outer/old-new...whatever only rule: Must be the same artist/band (no remixes-no special cameo-original artist-album) For example Hallucinogen -- The Lone Deranger -- Twisted Records. Find the one that was to be released pre-summer 1997, not September 1997. This is good for everyone. I didn't know that it was supposed to be released earlier .... so try to get the artist's originally released album. So, The catalog number for this is TWSCD1--not NTD 91006-18 (Nova Tekk)... This is a challenge...just ask OOOD and Elysium. Again no Various Artists or DJ MIX(ie. Deck Wizards, This is Goa Trance Vol 37, and no DAT's. It must have a UPC.

 

Rotwang: You are better at converting my gibberish into a coherent topic. Can you please redirect this? Of course it is up to you, and your fine posters. Thanks,

 

And I got a surprise for all you nostalgic and fanatical Psy/Goa archaeologists. But, I got to go, so I will ;) post it later.

^ Why no Goa Trance?

 

I don't know, for fun!

 

I also almost stopped listening to Goatrance from 2003 until 2008. Most psy & progressive...

 

There was Goatrance released in that period but imo not that good as < 2000

 

+ we have recent goatrance and those still have to prove themselves but to be in a top decade.

 

I listen to all aspect of Psy between quotes so... If it's good, I'm in!

Shpongle - Divine Moments Of Truth (2000)

This is just me being annoyingly picky, but does that really count? It's just remixes of a song from a 1998 album.

 

I wasn't even aware of it until now. I assume since you included it that the remixes are pretty good?

No you are absolutely right,

 

I meant 'Tales Of The Inexpressible' from 2001, I missed & edited the above post.

 

Thanx Posted Image

I have to say it was very difficult picking these, let alone putting them in the "right" order. If I had to do it tomorrow I'd probably end up with a different order. :) Also, I only started listening to psy in 2003 (and only the big names then like IM, AP, Hallucinogen), so I probably missed a ton of good stuff from 2000-2004. I've actually heard more pre-2000 stuff than 2000-2004. Anyway here goes:

 

UPTEMPO----

-----------

1.Texas Faggott - Petoman's Peflett

2.Tamlin - Spectrogram

3.Igor Swamp - Metsä Vastaa, Kuuleeko Suomi

4.EvsY - Virtuosi Di Quosi

5.Kino Oko - Alphabetically Divided Highway

6.Troll Scientists - Sir Eel

7.Texas Faggott - Pilluminati Cunt Roll

8.Talpa - When the Somberness Becomes a Game

9.Fragletrollet - Playground of Spirit

10.Artifakt - Artifakts 2

 

Hmm...I guess I like suomi a bit? :P

 

 

DOWNTEMPO--

-----------

 

1.Shpongle - Tales of the Inexpressible

2.Argaman - My Little Forest

3.Satumnaisuus - Kaleidoskopedelia

4.Bluetech - Elementary Particles

5.Easily Embarrassed - Planet Discovery

6.Easily Embarrassed - Idyllic Life

7.Shpongle - Ineffable Mysteries from Shpongleland

8.Kaya Project - And So It Goes

9.Unstable Elements - Technical Illusion

10.Kuba - Bringing It All Back Home

 

 

 

 

 

I plan to check out a lot of these albums you all have mentioned though. I haven't even heard of some of these artists. :)

Hey everybody,

 

The deadline was supposed to be the 19th. I think though we could close the thread a little later, in order to wait for Rotwang (the OP).

 

So please, if you haven't posted yet, do so now since there is not much time left!
