Superb album! I just listened to it about 5 times in a row for old time's sake. The music is very powerful, darkish and melodic with eastern melodies.

On first listen I thought Astral Flight was the best track. Later on I fell in love with Sign Of Light and Beyond Control. I'm sure now that all the tracks are approximately equally wonderful! There's no doubt whatsoever in my mind that this is a 5/5 release.

The style here isn't overly creative and all the tracks sound similar but it's definitely not boring. The only negative thing about this album is that lots of the samples, while saying cool things, sound cheesy, most notably the ones in Universal Key.

If you like melodic goa like Astral Projection and epic stuff like Dimension 5 this album is for you. If you're lucky you might even find the original mixed version. Prepare to meet and be teased by Ra the sun god!

Pure melodic old skool Goa bliss from back in the days. Well, actually this was released two years after the reign of the melodic school but this could might as well have been released in 1995. Some of it sounds very Astral Projection inspired but with a more sticky edge. Monotonous and … well, that and melodic. And like not much else released in 2000/2001.

My favourite is perhaps Universal Key that rose straight to my list of essential goa tunes. POOWW!! It’s taste, of course, but AP lovers should love this. Still, it competes with Initiated which is so ridiculously relentless it lacks words. Just coming at you. This is the dark edge of psytrance I fell in love with in the mid nineties. Yet maybe it’s even Sign Of Life that ends taking that prize. Combining dark with melodic it’s even more haunting. AUUCHH! And R.O.M. is not much worse! By this time the album is flowing into Neverland and I’m kicking my head I didn’t know about this album back in 2000. DOOIOOIOONG!

And with 3 Capital Letter exclamations in one comment an album can’t make a much better grade.
