With INTO THE DEEP, L.S.G. breaks into the mainstream, with seminal 'big room' UK label Hooj Choons. Even as "Concatenation" starts off on an ambient tip, it soon wanders into a slow, melodic rhythm, before edging into the Spanish spoken word of "No Causalidad" and the calm breaks of "Give Me Your Hand." "El Tiburon" continues this dreamy procession, though with heavier percussion. As a whole, this album seems to stray far from L.S.G.'s usual hard trance maneuvers, even if "Quick Star" threatens to go in that direction. "I'm Not Existing" starts out with some angular melodies with quasi-tribal rhythms before the vocals come into and establish a more traditional downtempo song pattern, "Jillanity" throbs with restrained energy, and "Phorus" helps some of that tension melt away. "Westside" takes out the album with a shuffling, near-trance experience, still on the chill side of things. It wouldn't take much to turn these tracks into club burners, and that's what Lieb does on the second disc, adding steady, solid beats to the bright "I'm Not Existing," while "Into Deep" gets two appropriately deep mixes. But it's the jittery, ticking "Jillanity" that stands out more, with its pent-up energy. Laidback Luke goes house (with a hint of disco) in his version of "Quick Star," while Medway retains the deep of "Into Deep" and lowers it even more with his tech-house mix. Thomas Krome speeds up "I'm Not Existing," though the results are slightly lackluster. "Train of Thought," which originally appeared on THE BLACK ALBUM, helps close out this album, and it's a good reminder of what Lieb can get up to when he blends the mellow and the trance together.

I have had this album for many years now & it gets better every time I hear it, like some mad herb that has the reverse tolerance lol. It is not even necessary to cane this album every day because if you find your self getting bored with other music you put this on & faith in music is restored.

5 stars is not enough for a release as great as this, they say every artist makes one defining record, Mr. Lieb has made more than his fair share but this release is a true masterpiece, and now made even better with the unmixed tracks - CLASSIC!!!

To elaborate, this release is in my humble opinion a timeless masterpiece of the dowtempo/chill genre. This is why: compositionally, every element "fits", nothing feels superfluous, there is a powerful, indescribable warm energy that eminates from each track that cannot easily be put into words. Its like Kraftwerk met Jarre and Tubby in the deep subterrenaian bowels of crunchy trip-hop loops while soaring through bright angelic pads and voices.

This album is definitely worth listening to, if anything for the dreamy layers of sound & mystical Spanish quotes overlaid with some real heart throbbing moments of bass & pads,is bound to keep the Ibiza chill-mongers happy. That said, Oliver Lieb is one of the Trance guru's of late & has delivered (what I think) a mesmerizing chill album.
It all flows so well & never loses it's feeling & 'nearly' tinkers into the 'underground' sounds of chill, with crunchy beats & so on, Therefore, giving the aesthetic a boost to those who wouldn't think twice about listening to it.
Only quirk(of sorts!): You will be wishing yourself by a beach whilst on that packed train on a wet Monday morning with this on..Oh well..Utopia will have to do.
P.S. I don't rate the dance mixes myself on the bonus disc.

Where to start with such an amazing work of art? From start to finish it has such an incredible flow - I don't think I've heard another album quite like it. The peaks will make you feel like you're flying, the valleys will make you feel like you're diving. The percussion and basslines are intelligently and intricately programmed, and won't let your attention wander. Cybéle de Silveira's incorporeal voice perfectly complements the unbelievably gorgeous keyboard work, to other-worldly effect.
I've listened to "Into Deep" more than any other album I own, and I'm sure I'll be listening to it in 50 years. Simply amazing.

1st cd is chilling, willing and mind fulling melodies with distinctive Lieb rhythms. 2nd cd is packed with more banging versions of the songs. Good allarounder
