Up until this release I never payed Kirna much mind, but it was a BIG surprise, from the very first song. Wildly imaginative, blending genres into spugedelic that never got blended in previously (and if you know spugedelic you know that is quite an achievement). Heartcore is immediately one of the standout tracks of the album, very funny, very varied, an absolute stormer with a hardcore beat blended in so nicely it doesn't stand out like a sore thumb. Justin Desert is my least favorite track but is notable for it's weird sampled sax melodies, still a very good track though, very funny too :). Kool Kat is like a classic goatrance song but it sounds like you're listening to it drunk :). Second standout track for me is Funky Dogg, a dancefloor bomb with some very interesting melodies and rhythms. Overdrive is summed up quite well by its title :). The least inventive of the tracks but a goatrance/spugedelic supertrack nonetheless.

For a free release, this is pure bliss, it is a miracle, more than 80% of the electronic music releases being sold on the market in 2006 and even now are not nearly as original or good as this one. A must have, even if you are only vaguely interested in psytrance, goatrance or spugedelic. And I'm not someone who talks about albums in this way very often...
