If there's one first album from an oldschool master which could never make it as a favourite of mine and which I will probably never file under "essential" or "classic" then it's Prana's debut. Sad, I don't know why, especially when I remember that this album contains one of my favourite tracks ever, Scarab.

This album is a collection of previously released singles and EP's, only track 9 seems to appear first on here. I think when it was released this album already sounded dated which is no wonder when considering that some tracks are from 1994. Production is also not top-class, even when making allowance for when the material was originally released.

The total opposite of what I said above goes for his second album, Geomantik.

This record could have been a masterpiece, unfortunately promising high moments lead to a rather boring result...We get in it and we get out it all in a sudden in search of a missing link between the atmospheres...Too many breaks inside the tracks make lose momentum.. Maybe too rich, too ambitious... In spite of all, must be listened to for this typical taste of the sound of the years 95/96 echoed by pieces like "Kiba" and "Taiyo"...

As infatuated with midnineties Goa as I am, there are albums from this period that doesn't really grab me. Cyclone belongs to this category, I'm afraid. It has its moments, no doubt, but over all seems a little out of focus. It's head on psychedelia too fast for both my feet & mind. Except, perhaps, for closing track Taiyo, where everything seems more focused.

Still, I will leave open the option, that put on at the right hour of nostalgia, more than just Taiyo could make me give the old bones a good shake. It may not have aged with grace, but it sure carries memories from the days.
