A stellar album if you ask me. But yes the listener must give total attention and multiple listens to really appreciate the artistry behind each track. Your head will be shaking with madness when you reach the end of this album . Steve Good is an electronic genius and this is not Full On nor Progressive, this is Psy Trance at its best, breaking and melting boundaries.5/5.
P.S- I really wish he had released more albums.

I only have the free remastered digital version of this album and what can I say, it's one of the best psychedelic trance albums ever. Is it Progressive or Full-On? You decide, tracks seem to hit both facets without being too much of it all time. And the attention to the detail is amazing, there is so much going in each track. It's very 2000ish but still sounds fresh if you ask me.

How and why this album is so underhyped (yet quite reasonably rated) is a mystery.

I don't know what these guys are raving about. All tracks are an incoherent mess of drums pads and screeching noise that tear at you ears brains and heart in a totally disconcertin way.

There is one big fuckin' BUT in this one though. And it is Encrusted Filth. Proper Psychedelic Trance.

That track alone makes this an essential record that needs to be in your collection, doesn't matter what you like. Fuckin' hell that track certainly rips you apart in a good way. It's like they put all their energy into just those 8 minutes and then just flunked out completely on the other 7.

One of the most underhyped psychedelic albums ever. (Notice, I don't claim it to be underrated since practically everybody who has it rates it.) Pure brilliance from start to finish. Somehow I tend to draw parallels between this album and Planet BEN's equally superb "Trippy Future Garden". Both are atmospheric, groovy and psychedelic as hell. Less is not often more but here it rings true as Double Dragon wipes the floor with 99.9% of the so-called "psychedelic" melodic albums. My favourites: track 2 (grooovyyyyy, shake your arse) and track 6 (which proves that these guys can do full-on the right way). Great, great, great. If you find this somewhere, do not hesistate.

This album is smokin'. It fits very well with the type of cavernous techy psy trance that Steve Good was doing that time. Fits right in with the Shudder/Crunch 12".
This LP is about half and half: half complex rockin' psy, and the other half midtempo complex groove. Continuum is such a well-done LP that it's too bad the pressing wasn't very good.
