Did I ever regret disowning this gem of a 90s ep. Balil is like an alt ego side project of Black Dog and the music carries the same homegrown, edgy, groove oriented techniques as the early Black Dog releases. Music here is a mix of downtempo acid bleeps, bloops and synthetic hallucinations. Very well done and on par with early FSOL, Aphex etc. Regardless of "Frulas" downplaying the release(sorry I think your review is a bit undeserving) I think one's music tastes must move on from the trance and techno pop ideology to realize this is NOT music for the masses and seeks a higher intellect of listener able to appreciate the time it took to create it. +5 for a classic ep.

Well... this is really not something special like the votes might suggest. I was expecting pretty much more when I heard Parasight on The Secret Life Of Trance comp. This mystical track is still the best point here, but the rest can be easily forgotten. And if Avidya is Intelligent Techno, I don't know...but IMHO, there are no signs of intelligence in this one. It's just some weird EBM with a lot of disharmonical noises. Intelligent Techno is somewhere else, though Rosery Pilots is another listenable one here.

A stealth Black Dog release, and incredibly difficult to find. <I>Parasight</I> is an astounding piece of work, still unparalleled today (except by other Black Dog productions, that is). “Rosery Pilots” and “Avidya” both demonstrate what “intelligent” techno can sound like -- groovy for both the feet and the mind. “Parasight” is a dark, throbbing track that would easily put any current trance track to shame. And “Island” is an ocean cruise that takes place entirely in your head. If you can find this EP, sell your soul to the devil to acquire it -- God will understand.
