Astral Total is a Psyquest track from the Psyquest album Age Of Reason This track is a melting of the actual psytrance & the way of 70's psychedelic music by the echo synth solo.
Mad Stof continue this tradition into melodies impros done the most spontaneously possible when it's recorded! I must say that Steve Hillage is also a strong "inspirator" for this way of melodies ! Enjoy Green ! With a touch of juvenil french language made by Djcat!

Ah, finally. Due to various unpredictable barriers and unforseen predicaments life had in store for me, the competition took a little longer than planned. The wait is over.

Anticipation cannot be held back any longer.

Girls are screaming and throwing their thongs at my hairy chest.

Tension has reached such a high level that it is slowly starting to melt into incertitude.

Ladies and gentlemen, your wives and your wrinkled dads as well. The moment you have all been waiting for:
Psyquest's "Mad stof & co" (whatever in Shiva's name does that mean?) is the worst goa trance album I have ever listened to. Not because it is so atrociously filthy on its own, but for the mere fact it is so hyped, wanted, fetching astronomical prices regardless of whose anus does it drop out of.
I stick my tongue out at you all.
I cannot be fooled with this one. Not ever again. The hype around this album is equivalent to paying big bucks to mexican farmers so their mules can excrete in your oral cavity. You like that idea? Then go buy this album. Please!
Track one. Leadfield. The acid, the lead melody - it all leads to an open field in the middle of nowhere, where it should potentially stay. Wait until 04:55. Yodel influences portrayed in psy? Awesome! It's like they had a chat with Heidi and told her to compose a melody on their Fisher Price sythesizer.
Number two. Neuron's Way. If I am certain of anything, then it's my conviction that this has nothing to do with neurons, or cerebral related themes, or grey matter - or plain anything to do with intelligence. But I love cheese pies. Do you? You must be loving them if you are prepared to spend a fortune on music. There is a noteworthy pie at 02:50. The whipped cream might be a bit too sour, but who cares when it's this fun. After all, biterness is sweet and sweet is neat. Right. Where were we?
T.B.E.? WTF? Abbreviation for: To be evaded? Could be, anyways, that is all you need to know.
Sacred Cow. Be polite now. This is religious territory. And I don't know how sensitive are the repective producers of this album about their faith. But they will be punished, maybe not in this life, but the firm fist of divinity will annihilate their studio. Incredible, just how many layers and sounds can you have in a single track, and actually make it ALL sound wack? Man, that is talent.
Shalhava has Frank Sinatra's trumpeter collaborating with these versatile musicians. The final lead melody should be your focal point here. Just listen to that. Goats getting strangled by violin chords. Delicious. My testicles are getting ironed with toasted bread. Lovely.
Hi T Visions? Is that a latent cry for widespread appreciation and recognition from the masses? Did the respective authors of this album have hit visions? Maybe they were expecting a top 40 break through. Hence all the musical diversity throughout the album: from congas, to electric guitars, violins, singing, trumpets and back. Hit visions. I envisioned a warehouse packed with Psyquest CDs get hit by a lost Soviet Union space vessel. Does that count?
The last two tracks, Luminous and Starlux must be tributes to the light. Understandable move, 'cause the tiny light at the end of the tunnel is the only thing that has helped me get through this album. I've had jungle flu twice, and counted to infinity, yet "Mad stof & co" refuses to end. I am safe now. Many of you out there are not. It is a cruel world, so you need an adequate soundtrack to match all the evil marching out there. What better place to start than Psyquest's magnum opus. It is a multifunctional item as well. For example, I can use the entire cover as a scarecrow. Hell, it made eagles crash upon the earth's surface and meet their maker. The CD surface can be used as a pet mirror. Or something to reflect sun rays in eyes of people you don't like. Options are many, but you better come up with a few of your own, because with the money you will be paying for this one, music on its own will hardly suffice, trust me. Or don't, provide me with a few more laughs.
