I've been fan of cosmosis since the first album that this amazing producer bring to us.
and let me tell you, that this album is awesome too!!
yeah, I know ,the sound is less complex that in the early albums, but we need to accept that the psytrance music is going in a wrong way, all the music sounds the same,full-on bases with a lot of effects and no melodies,
but this album doesnt enter in that description, bilbo bring to us a powerfull journey of sounds!! amazing main melodies,mindblowing basses combine with space sound with a lot of new things,
highly recomended 5/5

I saw Bilbo live on stage twice and I find him being one of the most likable guys on stage since he was dancing and laughing as much as most of the dancefloor. Furthermore he belongs to those artists with whom I started to get into the trance virus and I share lots of intense memories with his music, so it is a bit hard for me to admit that I have mixed feelings about this one.

First of all, the good things: He really remains true to himself. He neither jumps on that cheesy fullon bandwaggon nor on that frugal clubby progressive one. He is one of the few who produce pure psychedelic trance with a warm feeling around it and I like that very much.

But, there is a big but(t): I can hardly hear any significant musical or technical development in his music over all these years. He still uses the same sounds and structures for years and therefore this album seems a bit pointless to me. In fact, that is a generell problem with many psy productions, but compared to other veterans from the early days who have advanced their skills a lot (like Dick Trevor for instance), Cosmosis seems to settle for much less than he could actually achieve.

Well, maybe it's just my pretentious point-of-view, but I was a bit disappointed. It's still a very nice album to listen to and I wouldn't miss this guy at a festival but it doesn't catch me by suprise once or blows my mind twice either. So, it gets a 3 outta 5.
