From digipak:
A party ain't a party without the people, really. And this music didn't grow in isolation, it was fed and watered with inspiration from the people that I've met and that I know.
I'd therefore like to thank the following people for their contribution to me and the music on this album for they've all had a hand in creating it. All in different ways and all just by doing what they do or by being themselves.
Also I appreciate their commitment to that free, open, loving, sometimes deeply spiritual but always ecstatic party spirit which characterizes only the Goa or Psy Trance party.
-list of thanked people follows-

Like the first two Cosmosis albums, I am pleased to be able to feature original artwork from one of the many talented artists associated with the party scene. This time NOS from Sweden.

After the huge success of Synergy, Bilbo Bagginz (Cosmosis) was left with a task similar to what Simon Posford had to do following up another classic album, Twisted. In fact the comparison is useful as both albums are masterpieces of utterly insane, beautiful, high energy squechly goa. In both cases, the artists followed up their classic albums by making slight changes in directions. Simon Posford ended up creating possibly the greatest psy-trance album of all time in The Lone Deranger, while Bilbo Bagginz made Intergalatic.

Much as was the case with The Lone Deranger, initially many fans where not happy with the shift. However with time, I think that Intergalatic is no less a successful follow up as Simon P.'s album was. Synergy was such a total full on goa experience, that sometimes it is a little hard to take in at once. Here Cosmosis took what was great about that album, and made a more refined piece of music. Personally I find Intergalatic a more listenable album over all when compared too Synergy, as well as a more funky one. Some people have claimed it is a progressive (i.e. minimal) album, a charge to which I can only say that if you think this is minimal, you need to go listen to more Eurobeat at 78rpm, as this album is VERY busy and most definately not in the progressive vein at all. For some reason, which remains a mystery to me, Intergalatic never caught on in the same way as The Lone Deranger did, although Intergalatic was 2 years later and came out at the beginning of Infected Mushroom's reign, so perhaps it was a bit misplaced time-wise.

Like all great albums, there are no super standout tracks because they are all excellent. The leads rip, thebass groovys, all the sounds are right where they sound be. I also dare say that the tracks here breath a bit more than Synergy (high praise as I think Synergy is one of the few 10/10 albums of the genre). What you have is 8 tracks of pure excellence in a follow up that is the equal to Snergy without being its copy. Excellent stuff. A must have....
