1 The album starts off with a storming fast track, which i really like. The melodies are there swirling out and about while the kick has a very cool oldschool feeling, being kept in the basement, and not straight up there in your face bouncing roundly as it often happens in modern productions. The sampled voices are subtle but very enjoyable. A great opener this Cupboard Remix. Not sure why easy listening but maybe it is because it is not a very loud goa track (which is good). The track is clearly psytrance but with a huge retro feeling to it. And also ... what if there is no tomorrow? I agree let's enjoy today.

2 The second track has similar style to the opener and it takes you to a higher level of consciousness with its deep layered patterns and the haunting galloping rhythm. The female voice all of a sudden gives it a magic touch, love it. A killer remix, not much more to be said other than: enjoy it, I sure did. Deep stuff.

3 Track III continues in consistency and goes even deeper, the Buddhas are really making it worth listening, a very enjoyable track, and the ghastly effect going around in circles works perfectly. "We have to see, we have to know" I certainly agree. The samples are used wisely but that ghastly pang inducing effect really works much on me. Watch Out for the mega ending.. Certainly one of the best tracks of the album.

4 This track is in classic Buddhas style, reminding me of their early creations and is a bit slower than the others, at least it feels this way. It starts softly but builds up. The sample sound from the same movie or at least the same voice from the previous track but this time is a little boring, at least until you realize it shifts from "See" to "Know". The track gets much nicer after that and I like the melody in the middle going on in the background + the sampled trumpet part that can be heard subtly. The whole track somehow has a disco feeling to it, so I guess you need to consider it in its own, a mature production but not easily understandable, it needs to grow on you.

5 What do we have here? A Magnus opus remix of almost 18 minutes? That's really cool and not common at all. It starts as such a long track should, in a very minimalist way, just the kick and a few elements. There are swirling sounds slowly appearing and creating a path, there are bees around you and haunting voices, classix forest style and it makes me feel I am walking in the woods while listening to this track, as if i were going on and on, step after step. "Time wouldn't exist?" perhaps. But surprises aren't finished, in the middle something unexpected happens and the track changes style, I feel I am in an Arab or Indian country and the percussion used in this part is really spot on. I might even call it a Shpongle on forest moment, very interesting. You'd need balls to play this at a party but I think it might be a surprising experience for the unaware listeners. The track comes back to its original rhythm as a circle indeed, as our life and time. The track is very experimental but I loved it. Will generate mixed feelings for sure.

6 The Ka-Sol remix of Time is easier to approach, it has very good elements and that classic groove that Ka-Sol always has. This is a killer remix, it has all the elements of the previous track, a toned down version but that would work very well on the dancefloor. The track before this one is mystical and magnificent but I think I’d rather play this one in a set, to make it easier for the listeners. At home though, I'd skip it as it's indeed simpler, so you have 2 remixes on this album but very different one another, excellent choice.

​7 Bodyhit (Remix) is a damn sweet track, I really like it! Bouncing, heavy, psychedelic, cool effects. It’s another favourite of mine and has splendid production. I feel there are even owl’s sounds in the background, but maybe it’s just an imaginary sound…

8 The final remix, True Hope, is a mid-tempo track. It starts very atmospheric and continues like a very deep trip, perfect to close this storming album.

I have to yet listen the original versions of these tracks but I am pretty pleased with my purchase, 80 minutes of forest mixed with goa vibes all blended together and ready to be played at home or parties, as you see fit.
