I agree with audioman. The Audio Works CD sounds great and authentic.
More people should be aware of this record, but it's also is nice to own a special record that isn't well known.
And I think it’s pretty cool that he only made one record.

The 2006 release of the album is "remastered" very poorly, with harsh mid and high frequencies. I was very disappointed when I received that far from cheap CD. It's yet another one of the many albums that originally sounded perfect as they were and should never have been touched by someone who got the strange idea of "enhancing" what's already perfect. Since then, I've found the original 1993 CD release which sounds absolutely perfect, unlike some very dubious claims that it sounds bad. I have the original LP release, the terribly "remastered" CD release, and the original CD release. The original CD sounds very much like the LP (similar frequency balance), but significantly better, without the lack clarity and artifacts.

As already mentioned, this is an important synth music masterpiece. It's just a shame that it's not available for purchase in any decent form nowadays.

Very great, one of the most important album in the progressive-electronics genre, beside Kraftwerk, Vangelis, Logic System, and so on... The 1993' CD release I have is very bad soundqualitywise. My old digitalising of the LP (old, cheap soundcard, old, cheap Pioneer player) made a much better result compared to that you find on this CD. I don't understand the digitalising, mastering engineers, why should a CD be soo bad, dull, info-less, noisy, cloudy, flat if I one can achive better, more precise results with very average devices??? The one have pre-mastered, digitalised the album, were made a very bad job. It was very disappointing then, and since I've became a pro-engineer, I have to repeat my opinion with double accent empowered with my 18 years audio experiences.... I have serious doubts in every later re-re-remasterings but it would worth giving a try (unlike with Kraftwerk remasters which are terrible shit). I don't understand J.T! In every possibile forum there was a buzz about his forthcoming new album after 25 years and it was 6 years ago. Please don't fool us but make music and forget those researches, and bloody scorings and production shits! Those might bring you money but not immortality. This album is it, your present lacks such. You're about to die. You know the "remedy".....

In 1981, the world of electronic music (and further) was enriched with an album by the “big synthman from Holland”, Johan Timman. This experienced musician, composer and sound engineer created an album that took the listener on a “Trip Into The Body”. Timman did that with all the goodies that synth manufacturer Moog could provide him with. Some were even custom engineered for Johan by Moog. The album shows a fresh new look on synthesizer music: accessible, melodically, symphonic and very well played and crafted. It was this album that received many positive reviews when it came out.

i Music and Synthesizer Lovers,
I'm alive and still going strong. The past 25 years I've done a lot with my MOOG's, especially research in the field of sound. This story will be too long to explain here, probably I shall tell more about it on my URL www.timmany.com. Beside this scientifically research I also made and composed music for films, commercials and other productions. Last year, inspired by my research how our brain and consciousness reacts by listening (aware or unaware) to sound and music, I decided to make a new album "The Cerebral Symphony". So if you are still interested in Johan Timman, please visit my site to stay informed about my doings. I am planning to complete my new album during august 2006, realizing myself that after 25 years "Trip Into The Body" is still getting your attention, even worldwide. You are welcome to react in my Guestbook, I shall be obliged to read it. Take Care, Johan Timman.
