This is a very weak release. The only track that's actually good is Pulse, which was already released on the Pulse EP. There's really no reason to listen to get this album other than for that one song. Unfortunately Planet BEN. is venturing away from Goa. Trippy Future Garden was promising and Non-Sense is one of my favorite tracks of all time. Pulse is good too, but the rest of the new tracks are lacking in complexity and boring to listen to.

This is one of the best techno/trance albums i have ever heard, but people looking for lightheaded full-on israelian inspired goa-trance for the dance floors probably should look elsewhere. This is the thinking mans trance, more of an inward laid back experience. Don't get me wrong here, i think this is great for the dance floors, but people used to full-on israelian psytrance, might find this boring at first listen. This is an album that you have to let grow on you to make it work, but believe me ... it's worth it!. It's slower, it's more minimal, it's more experimental, it's darker ... i could go on, than your average 'psy' release. It's very obvious that Planet Ben has been inspired by X-Dream on this release, but he does a great job at it and adds something new to the style. All in all this is one of the best releases in the genre in my opinion, almost on par with the unbeatable 'X-Dream-Radio' album. So if you like the darkside of German psy-trance, give this one a listen 4.5/5 ... Unfortunately the lack of releases like this is what have driven me away from the genre :( ...
