Listen to the Art of Trance song Octopus [Man with no name remix] if you want to hear how Art Of trance played in the world of Goa Trance back in 1995. Amazing track. Maybe then you can understand why some fans might feel disappointed in this more commercial offering.

Also, I feel compelled to voice my shock at maxi_vinylnut's assertion that "Breathe" isn't very good, to me it's clearly the album's best along with Monsoon, the rest of the tracks don't even come close - perhaps "Panorama" on a good day, though it might make me want to go listen to some Satie instead. On a whole though it's a decent album to listen to when you're (I'm) out and about on a good day, but the first two tracks are a couple of the few true classic tracks of progressive trance music.

Hey, whaddya know - I randomly stumbled upon what has got to be the inspiration for the "ever so lonely" line in "Monsoon": Monsoon - "Ever So Lonely". Even the voices sound similar.

I don't agree with ReeferMans comment that this is more commercial radio friendly house mainstream than Wildlife on one, ( he is certainly entitled to his opinion) to me This still falls squarely into the trance genre. Most tracks of this were very good, DUD UK, Panorama, Monsoon, The Hummer are all excellent tracks with the exception of Breathe which i didn't like mainly because of the vocal in that track but all in all this album is a must for Art of Trance fans and Platipus records alike !!!

As some of the Art of Trance tracks, "Panorama" is inspired in a classical music masterpiece. In this case, piano parts belongs to "Erik Satie - 1ère Gymnopédie".
But it never appeared on any credit.

The second album from Art of Trance sees them exploring a more commercial, less edgy sound, in parallel with their label (Platipus) moving into the more radio friendly house mainstream. Indeed a few of the tracks from this album have enjoyed commercial success.

Once again the production is deep and lush, and the direction is generally more prgressive than 'Wildlife On One'. All of the tracks are, as one would expect, very high quality. Standout tracks for me are 'Breathe' and 'Voice of Earth'. The former pays homage to early UK electropop via the female vocal lines, whilst the latter offers a new take on the old idea of combining dance music with spoken vocals.
