I don't understand why this album is not on the spotlight when California Sunshine are discussed. For me, this album is their second best, only losing slightly to Nasha. However, I strictly believe it is a far better work than Trance and Imperia for example.

Why? First, it is a lot more diverse than every other CS album. Of course, this is mainly because there are collaborations with other artists, but nevertheless, they blend really well with what you want to hear from CS. The sound is also much more mature than previous releases - the quality is very high and to my ears it is still fresh and ready to be played at a party.

Highlights of this album, in my opinion, are Flying Eye Land, Breaking Through and Forest. The rest are all good too. I agree, however, with the previous commenter that it should've been written on the sleeve that Coming Home is a cover of Blue Planet Corporation's Midian (indeed a very good one).

I rate this album very high among my Goa favorites. Diverse, yet coherent and without a weak and dull track. Recommended!

I do like "Coming home", the cover of Blue Planet Corporation's all-time classic "Midian". What I don't like though is that California Sunshine doesn't mention that it is an BPC-cover anywhere. It's like they have stolen it IMO..
What about the album?
Well, it was one of the last pure goa-trance albums ever done. It doesn't bring anything new, it's just pure old-school goa in a modern package. And in my opinion I think it was strong by Har-Ell and the other guy in CS to keep true to their goa-roots and not fall into the slimey kind of psy-trance which was starting to grow up by that time.
But I think "Nasha" is CS's best work to date, with the marvellous tune "Jajo".
