Can't think of many examples where the word 'sublime' is more applicable.Sasha's 'voyage of ima' shows a deep and respectable understanding of the music on offer,but at the end of the day,this is BT's work,and this is truly his opus.distinctively different from anything else at the time and marrying progressive house and trance in a way that nobody had done before or since.the album has a continuous theme of funkiness and tribalism throughout yet manages to bridge the gap between house and is tough in parts,mellower in others,but always melodic and danceable.a real stroke of musical genius.
A profoundly affective album which showcases the innovation of electronic music at the time,and utterly unique.
