One of the rarest and most underrated various artists compilations to have ever seen the light of day and hit shelves in stores. Be it the awkward title or (to my knowledge) extremely limited distribution, I don't know, but regardless, this is one of the most demented psy trance releases I have ever heard.
Skip the first track, the next three validate the purchase. Yumade deliver a pulsatig stomper, with some repeating sample saying who knows what. Dark, pretty minimal, but fat. Lotus Omega are next up to bat with the most savage track they have ever released. I mean, the heat. The intensity. This is to psy trance what Berlin by Jeff Mills is to techno. Whoa! The title says it all - 100% revital free! Magus and Baian Kara Ula? You have never, and I repeat, never heard anything as insane as this tune. You probably won't ever again hear anything as remotely berserk as this either. The final climax here is beyond comprehension. This is extreme beyond the concept of maximal. The next three tracks are all by scando sound veterans, which means that weird, erratic, loud and distorted sounds are on the menu. What We Saw Tonight by Battle Of The Future Buddhas is my pick of the three, as it's loaded with disturbing effects which will make you feel as though flocks of tiny buddhas were eating up your brain. Unfortunately the last two tracks disappoint, which comes as no big surprise since they are courtesy of Ceiba and Alphanaut, producers with far less talent and vivid imagination than any of the previous. Lunar Tunes and Track 13 both lack creativity, intensity or virtually any other factor that would entirely captivate your attention like the previous numbers. Overall, it may not be a classic, but there are five unquestionable killer tracks here, and when I say killer, I mean psychedelic devastators exclusive to this compilation, if not to the entire genre. Coming to think about it, Goa Trance RIP. Sick sick stuff!
