Funny how I'm the first one to drop a comment about one of the genre's most talked about and praised albums... Whatever.
For what it may matter now, anno 2008, "Alien Protein" has Etnica taking control of the scene and calmly sitting on the throne.
Spectacular melodies, constantly morphing and evolving sounds and effects, memorable and well orchestrated leads with adequate production vaults, reckless attitude shifting from one track to the next, energetic and bombastic I-don't-give-a-flying-f**k party music, but simultaneously coming across as surprisingly trippy and thought provoking for listeners ready to get submerged into an irresistible head on psychedelic experience.
This IS goa trance just like I want to hear it. No cheese, no fluffyness, no nonsense samples about pseudo mystical spiritual rituals, just fantastic timeless music which is clearly not aiming to break the genre's limits, yet confidently resides within them like few other releases I own.
A must own for every old schooler and a solid place to start for new comers, along with stuff like Astral Projection's debut or Total Eclipse's "Violent Relaxation"! It has been re-released a few years ago, so chances are you can get a new and sealed copy without breaking a sweat.
