Uptempo
1. Ultimate Xperience - Lazarus Rising (Neogoa) ......................................... An UNEXPECTED surprise
2. Morphic Resonance - The City of Moons (Suntrip Records) ..................... My FAVOURITE Suntrip release in YEARS
3. Artha - Dream Telepathy (Cronomi Records) ............................................ EXCELLENT (few nitpicks aside)
4. RA - Earthcall (Suntrip Records) ............................................................... Would've loved more songs but GREAT release
5. Crossing Mind - Beyond Duality (Suntrip Records) ................................... Complex, ultra-melodic Goa with INGENUITY
6. VA - Mind Rewind 3 (DAT Records) ........................................................... DESERVES to be on more lists IMO
7. Chi-A.D. - Earth Crossing (Amakusa Records) .......................................... Hard to place this Re-Released CLASSIC 

8. Proxeeus - Weird Tales (Goa Madness Records) ...................................... UNDERRATED Goa album
9. VA - Analog Trips (DAT Records) ............................................................... Unreleased songs from old-school GOA artists
10. Ephedra - Flying Over The Universe (Goa Madness Records) ................ LOVE some of the work (tracks) here
 
Honorable mentions: 
Mindsphere - Mental Triplex: Presence (Suntrip Records) ............................. Ultra melodic Goa
Oforia - Read More (MDMA Music) ................................................................ Good comeback album
Virtuart ‎– Virtuart & Friends (DAT Records) .................................................... Some great Goa tracks on this double album!

Agnetivax - Achieving Mokesha ...................................................................... Ethnic influenced Goa gets tastier as album progresses
Ticon - Mirage (Iboga Records) ...................................................................... One of the best Progressive Trance album's in years
 
Downtempo
1. Perfect Blind - Wanderers (Ae Records / Neogoa Records) ....................... GREAT album though track 2 is too repetitive
2. VA - Goa Meditation Vol. 1 (Timewarp Records) ......................................... Finally found another EXCELLENT albeit double album
3. Aes Dana feat. Miktek - Far & Off (Ultimae Records) .................................. Crisp, Atmospheric.. I LOVE about 4-5 tracks
4. The Bhaktas - MODIFIED (Altar Records) ................................................... Includes a beautiful new song by ASURA  :wub: 
5. Scann-Tec - Unyt (Ultimae Records) ........................................................... Fairly subdued psychill, yet more or less gripping, great
6. Suduaya - Venus (Altar Records) ................................................................. Some great and melodic mid-tempo work.
7. Shamanizm Parallelii - Tales From Colored Tepee (Ae Records / Neogoa Records) ..... The "Temple Of Buddha High" song is magical.
Wish more of the album was on that sexy, romantic, dreamy and euphoric level!!!
 
NOTE:  I haven't been that impressed with downtempo this year. Perfect Blind released a GREAT album, though the second track is too repetitive. Everyone check out VA - Goa Meditation Vol. 1 by Timewarp Records. The Asura Remix called Pitr Purusebhyo Namah on The Bhaktas compilation by Alter Records is so beautiful. Same with Chronos' song Keep In Your Heart; the album though is not on the same level of that track IMO. I don't mind that Suntrip didn't release a compilation. IMHO their artist albums were worth it. Best GOA comp for me is VA - Mind Rewind 3 (DAT Records) followed by V/A - Analog Trips though I really like (and don't like) a few on Analog Trips. Can't wait to hear Virtuart and Friends!
