How the hell was XXL reviewed, but not this?


"Ummm, Mike...that was you. You did that."


Yeah, well...look, a T-Rex!


*runs away*


Seriously though the fact that one of the most psychedelic goa trance releases of all time never got recognition here is mind boggling. It's the perfect storm of awesome. Well known artists putting their best foot forward creating some of the most hypnotic goa trance of an era.


Normally when you see a face this close there are numbers underneath it and the reason people never smile in those photos is because the body cavity search they were just subjected to was a little more vigorous than they were probably used to. It's not a first date, Shaquita skips the movie and dinner and heads right for where the magic happens. Waitaminute...






Holy sh*t TIP Records predicted the future. They were trying to warn us. Well, Indian diplomats anyway. So she got arrested, strip searched, and a body cavity search all because she brought the caste system to America and didn't drop enough rupees on an untouchable?


Look, you can do a lot of things in NYC. You want a slice of pizza at 3:47 in the morning, we'll ask you what toppings you want. Want to see a show with two Saudi grandmothers dressed as anime school girls having sex with a donkey? We call that Tuesday uptown. But one thing we won't tolerate is under paying hard working employees that keep this city running.






Oh, that. Hey mistakes were made, let's not point any fingers. Especially that one you just...ah...you know. Look, a T-Rex!




If I may address the Indian government. Please accept our apologies for my country's rough treatment of the good doctor. Perhaps it was a little overkill and the parties involved could've been a tad overzealous. That said, maybe just maybe, we'll stop fingerf*cking your diplomats when you begin to crack down on your rather sizeable gang rape problem.


But I digress.


This album is a juggernaut. An absolute beast showcasing the best of goa and psychedelia and trance. There aren't many albums that are perfect, but this one is a It's a worthy addition to any goa enthusiasts collection. It's just track after track of mind numbing dream trips. Now if you'll excuse me, I heard there were a few T-Rexes around here.
