I listened to this whole CD today driving home from San Francisco. First time I really had the time to deeply listen to this release which I purchased over a year ago and a few of the songs really impressed me. First of all I feel that this music requires a couple things from the listener to fully appreciate this music: One a very good sound system and Two, you have to have a passion for Goa Trance and a very focused mind so you can listen deeply to these tracks. Distracted listening will not work with this release nor will distracted dancing. The previous reviewer felt that the music was rather monotonous, bland and unimaginative. I found this music to be deep and innovative and capable of holding very nicely a deeper and more contemplative part of a Classic Goa Trance set. I think this music works very well with Planet Ben's Trippy future Garden and when I was listening to it today I thought this CD works very well with some of the more complex psychedelic Classic Goa Trance of the mid and even late 90's sounds. The previous reviewer also thought the songs were too long but I personally love the extended length of these songs especially "The Evolution of X" and "The Tube". These songs, even at 14 minutes held my interest and I am frequently saddened when a song is just catching its flow and ends at 8 or even 9 minutes. This is rare treat to hear songs go into "Jam Mode" and run out to 14 minutes. A 14 minute song on a dance floor is not for superficial partying. Its for taking the mind to places it's never been before and many people just can't go there. This is not rave milk for the babies. I would play the entire cut of these 2 songs at a dance event if I ever have the chance. Maybe half the dance floor drops out....so what. X-Dream has a song on Trip to Trancesylvania that goes 16:47 Called 'The 5th Dimension [Live in Paris}. One of my favorite long length Goa Trance songs. I wish there were more of these. This CD is going in my special stack of Classic Goa Trance CD's for sure.

Ingo Schnorrenberg, who is known in old school circles for appearing in many different projects, delivers an album which unfortunately doesn't sound like anything but a bland hybrid of old school goa trance and the regular, melodic stuff. The first five tracks go on for over ten minutes each, which I usually don't mind if the flow and the structure are right, but these pieces last way beyond their welcome. There are entire passages where two unimaginative layers get repeated and repeated and repeated and repeated for what seems like eternity. Tracks don't fully develop or even evolve once you go two minutes deep into them. This leaves you with very lengthy pieces which never reach a level of complexity or even a satisfactory trance like feel of the music, when the long and dreamy soundscapes would eventually hypnotize you.
This has neither, not the intensity and the skill required to keep one's interest through a twelve minute track, and then from the other angle, the melodies are just too sparse and too formulaic, if you want lazy, to seduce, mesmerize you. Ingo has often been known to be able compose great and positive melodies, something he fails to do track after track here.
In my opinion, the only chance worthy track is Lunatic Tribe, with a tad more effort put into it, and catchy acid leads. However, in its almost full thirteen minutes, one too many times does it wander off, and having that it really has no focal point, various layers are added without any meaning or purpose, so after a while it sounds like somebody's improvisation over steady drum kicks. Only my two cents.
Furthermore, if you want to hear an album where the trippy, the melodic and the psychedelic amount to a great results, I suugest trying X-Dream's "We created our own happiness" or better yet, Planet B.E.N.'s "Trippy future garden" for a proper, outer worldy experience.
Personally, I can dig "Evosonic" only as vague background music while washing the dishes or doing something similar. It is not an unbearable album, far from it, but I find it too scarse in sounds and musical department, while well executed ideas are few, and set far apart from each other.
