One of my favourite albums from 2003. Definitely one to keep :)

I have to agree with both reviews. The vibe and drift of the music is deep and beautiful, but the tracks are too formulaic. I think an EP with about 4 tracks would have been a better format. I think the problem with a lot psy albums is, that the artists haven't enough ideas to produce 9 tracks, but it's hard in this scene to get recognized with EP-releases.

Still, I'm glad that I bought it. "Nexus 6 Remix" is one of my all-time favs and the general atmosphere and vibe of the tracks is awesome.

My initial infatuation with this album declined rapidly. First time I heard Pure Analog I considered it quality full-on psy-trance. For some reason, though, after a few spins it doesn’t move me anymore. Don’t get me wrong. Pure Analog is designed for the floors and as such I’m sure it'll rock. Certainly I will not rule out that this will have me swinging the old bones once or twice around the block.

But that’ll be it I’m afraid. It’s not cheese, but it sure aint hard-core either and after two tracks the formula is crafted in concrete. Full-on bassline, some FX, melody, break, and back on track. That’s all fine – I like the formula – but I also need that element of surprise or anger to sweep me off my feet. And that happens rarely on Pure Analog.

The comparison with Astrix’ Eye To Eye from 2002 is obvious but might not be fair since I heard Astrix years before Pure Analog. Still, in my mind Eye To Eye has the edge Pure Analog lacks. It’s like, Pure Analog is almost there and has me going but then never quite delivers and once again has me awaiting the next track.

First album by Silicon Sound (Johannes Regnier) from France, also known as Walhalla together with Charles Michaud (Triptych). This was for sure one of the best psytrance albums of 2003. Full on, melodic morning trance that went deeper than anyone else in this scene. The tracks are very melodic, but never fall over to the cheesy side. Most of the tracks also goes more hypnotic. Recommended!
