This is without doubt one of the greatest albums of the Goa era. I bought this album when it was originally released and listed to it practically every day for about six months, almost 14 years later and I still listen to it regularly.
The album consists of live recordings of their material at various venues across the UK, and while the studio versions of the tracks on this album were good, when they are played live it adds another dimension to the music. The live material just sounds more earthy and raw, and less regimented. The best example of this is probably Silence, while the original wasn't a bad track, the live version is amazing. From the minimal intro to the layer soaked end, it's a hauntingly melodic journey that shouldn't be missed.
The whole album is an energetic, melodic, sonic masterpiece. A must have for all Goa aficionado's but also a great entry into Goa trance and while not as genre defining as say Twisted by Hallucinogen, it really does deserve to be up there as one of the best of all time.

In my opinion this album gets overlooked very often when great releases of the golden era are the topic of the discussion.
While not innovative as some of its contemporaries, it is just so much fun to listen and/or dance to, with really uplifting segments of melodic bliss and a distinct old school mayhem factor, both of which are simultaneously staying in touch with the deeper, more psychedelic aspect of the music through all the little details and samples it uses.
I love for it being so uptempo and fast. It's a 74 minute adrenalin rush through your entire body. I also have a soft spot for the ecstatic climaxes on Cthullu and Silence, the great build up on Two Dawns Over Baleswar and the overall acid frenzy of Rifa.
The whole album is an uncontrollable roller coaster ride through numerous stops on the dance floor. The tunes are raw, wild, energetic, overwhelmed with determination to make you move, and an irresistible likeability factor, making this one of the few album which successfully contains all the ingredients of a always welcome "have a good time all the time" attitude. One of my all time old school favorties. Boy, they sure don't make 'em like this any longer...
