Quote

Psylent Buddhi is an extremely talented and unlucky oldschool producer: all his precious work from the 90’s was lost. Fortunately, some dedicated goa enthusiasts managed to minutely recollect the tunes he’d shared before his disk crash, and 20 years later you can finally enjoy his wonderful works!

Many on this board are familiar with these tracks, I personally was not. The hype surrounding this release made me a little scared that it would not live up to the hype, at least for my personal taste.
But what I discovered was really my thing. The Old is Gold adage sounds overstated, however it often proves to be right, and with this album I can agree, these old tracks are wonderful, full of enthusiasm, full of energy. 
The music is fast, acid, with risk-taking, it was compared to Green nuns of the revolution, I would also compare it to Cosmosis, it is more messy though, but extremely enjoyable and truly psychedelic. Superb material for dancefloors or home listening. The originality and harmonic quality of this release is not to be underestimated in my opinion.
Another strong point is that the tracks sound distinct to each other, it is not too homogeneous, and the overall sound is audacious and has strong personality, 
And in comparison with a lot of other goa artists in this era, Psylent Buddhi puts a lot of attention on the basslines. The basslines hit hard and are an important element of the tracks.
If I had to find a weakness I would say the music sounds a bit messy and noisy at times, it's not a big deal though. Overall I cannot neglect the fantastic effort and high energy that sets the theme of this album. This is fantastic news for the scene to see this album finally released.

Rating: 8/10.

Very psychedelic.  Juicy squelches, searing leads, and plenty of concussive force.  Moksha and Convergent Images are pure scorched earth monsters that made the Pleiadians arch an eyebrow.  The last bit went out with a whimper in my opinion.  Would've liked to have seen Retrocede or In The Stream finish out the album.

All things considered it's definitely a  winner.

Long awaited album and it is great, but no masterpiece overall, but with some masterpieces.

Luna Core is very atmospheric with his sound of a mystic flute and reverb. Neura reminds me at his climax on Moksha (maybe the chords are similar). Good anticipation. The first to track are a good warm up. With Secret of the Atoms the acidstorm begins. :-) The follow-ups Moskha and Convergent Images are the classics and masterpieces of the album. Pure bliss! :-) Acidic, chaotic, psychedelic, aggressive melodic (very nice melodies, especially Convergent Images) mastertunes. The dancefloor is burning. :-) Secret of the Atoms, Moskha and Convergent Images are the best tracks of the album. Metalucid is the perfect coming down. This six tracks work perfect together. Until here it is one album for me.

The last two tracks are different and fall out of the concept. More music for the morning, i think. Innerscape reminds me on Astral Projection. Hmm its a boring track. The melodies are medicore. Lightswitch is better. The Bassline reminds me on Doof (Star Above Parvati). I like the glassy sounded fx. Its a good track. Maybe the better way would be to close the album with In the Stream or/and Winter Tickle. Then the album would be a masterpiece for me.

8/10

I just found Innerscape on yotube and I think it's quite nice, i like such smooth melodies and cosmic synths. Can't say it's an outstanding track, the melodies are somehow linear and predictable, but a still a nice example of my preferred kind of goa.

I understand from the reviews I shouldn't bother listening to other tracks," chaotic, agressive, pure scorched earth monster" etc are typically bad qualities in my book.
