Let's have an electric universe game

So with the cheesy fillers in the last 3 EU albums Silence In Action, Higher Modes and Sonic Ecstasy - 32 tracks in total - I thought of choosing your very favorites(if you have any) and then re-arranging those into a solid full-on album. Making your cover is a bonus!

 

Actually it might even be fun creating the very worst album you can from these 3 albums. Go for it by all means!

 

You can choose tracks from the burning album too, but beware, there's vocals.

Hehe, fun idea penzo but I too have to admit that I haven't listened to anything by electric universe after cosmic experience :P

Thanks a lot for this thread ... Electric Universe is coming to play live here and I don't really know if I should go so I wanna listen to stuff to see what he's doing now ... last stuff I heard was many ages ago ... so this really comes in handy for me now :)

 

I would mention Gaijin Rocker in your best of though. I find that one not bad, first half especially.

I bought Unify (2xLP) brand new. It was good.

 

Cosmic Experience had a few good riffs hidden somewhere in a big barrel of cheese. Didn't buy that one.

 

After that...five seconds of the first sample have usually told more than I wanted to know. I'll pass.

Cosmic Experience was his last good one.

 

I wouldn't even go that far. As far back as "Blue Planet" the albums started becoming just a couple decent tracks surrounded by mediocre or worse filler. Not even necessarily bad, just boring. "Cosmic Experience" was even a step up from the previous few; it jumped headfirst into the fullon style where the previous few flirted with it, but turned out better for it.

 

Side note, I just took a look at Discogs and discovered there's an entire album among the early ones I was unaware of: "Waves".

exactly. i'd still classify blue planet as good album of old electric universe, but the following 2 were just mediocre. and cosmic experience includes two tracks (morning star and the prayer), that'd easily make it in my 10 best fullon tracks list :). but anything after cosmic experience… :(

I sometimes listen to full-on too... It's not that I hate the genre in itself either, I just don't know too many good full-on acts. To party on it can be quite nice, however for homelistening I just prefer Goa, ambient and forest.

I sometimes think Im in the wrong forums cos everyone is full-on haters... =\

 

i love fullon (not as much as goa but still)! the problem is that there isn't that much good fullon anymore. from around 2002 to 2006 there was a lot of it, afterwards it became formulaic-always-the-same-sounding-with-more-and-more-cheese; nowadays (with some notable exceptions) it's getting more and more "minimal-ized" with bleeps and stupid kick/bass patterns that stop and therefore break the flow every couple of bars. that's not the fullon i love and know, with cosmic melodies that take you to different worlds.

 

this is fullon with soul that puts you in trance and takes you on a journey:

i'd be very happy for recommendations of similar fullon released 2012.
