The Gurningpoint is a bit tentative for the first few minutes but it slowly hits it's stride at 5 minutes and then owns it as it goes full throttle. Peak 97 kicker. The B side kicks but only at about 75% of Side A. I don't know how I missed this one the first time through. Definitely essential Classic Goa Trance.

One of the true old school heavy weight releases, by two of the scenes giants: Anders Enkvist and Miranda. This is the real deal here, the raw, proper and no-holds barrel sound of goa trance circa the good ol' '97! Both tracks are similar structure wise, with awesome pumping percussion, spaced out, mind dazzling melodies with spiralling and burning acid.
No samples here, no eastern melodies and corny DMT samples, just powerful and dominant melody work getting drilled inside your head. Both tunes have explosive climaxes, embellished with unforgettable leads and furious 303s. You know, the music builds up by combineing multi layered sequences entering one after the other until everything finally explodes via one final, massive and grand collage of all the previous elements combined. Awesome! Fans of Ominus, early Cosmosis and The Green Nuns Of The Revolution should not be without this, as shouldn't be literary anybody who ever claimed being in love with goa trance. Anyways, imagine it as being a point where Miranda's Phenomena lends its leads to the driving percussion of Miranda's Real Rush and then it all borrows some rabid acid from Ominus' Acid Tester. That sums these two tracks up. Seriously now, this ranks up there with the finest releases from the era, but somehow often gets left out in retro discussions when we reminisce about what was hot and what was not. Chek it out, or just plain give your copy over!
