Another classic offering from the Platipus label and frequent collaborator Claudio Guissani. A bit less acid / psy and a bit more melodic than the Union Jack releases but still quite hard trance. Contains some great tracks (e.g. Floating, Planet Ogo) that are as strong as any from the Platipus stable.

At time of writing this album is out-of-print and Platipus can only supply a card cover CD-R version. It's still worth getting a copy :)

Great collection of trance music from when the acid era was dying and the melodic era was growing. Giussani (formerly of Union Jack fame) combines those two elements and creates songs that can either be hypnotic or emotional. Could Platipus ever do wrong in those years?
