I am not into darkpsy at all, so nearly all of this release is music that I have no resonance with..........but............there is a nice track on this release for Classic Goa Trance fans like myself.........cut 6 Mushroom maze. I'm not into the dark , but I do enjoy the mysterious and complex, yet this cut has enough lightness to satisfy my taste for high quality, interesting, melodic Classic Goa Trance while at the same time being a bit off the beaten path. If a melodic set was to become a bit more complex and challenging and drop into the primordial ooze for a awhile, then this song would fill that bill without mucking up the positive vibe. Excellent song!!

Great review by Joseph_S below sums it up-- this album is an underrated gem of dark un-cheesy psychedelic trance with subtle breakbeat rhythms and driving synth leads that develop nicely as the tracks progress. No weak tracks to be found.

A grossly underestimated dark Goa Trance album. This is dark and evil Goa Trance as was supposed to be done, without much fluffiness and screaming samples from movies which I don't dig much.

Speaking of dark Goa from the same period the focus is often on Xenomorph's debut album released later the same year. This album is very sought and accordingly overpriced. Xenomorph's album may be slightly better than Menis', but Menis' album still sells low and is very widely available on various stores. For what both albums sell if you get Menis' you have nothing short of an outstanding album which isn't much less than Xenomorph's.

Get it now, and check out also the Live Mix of The Drugs Do Work on the compilation "Enlightenment".
