Review originally posted @ in September 2000:

Awesome!. This is what psytrance is all about and this is simply a
monster-compilation from the good old days. The CD kicks of with a very cool
track from Masaray. "Going To That Level Of Trance." Fantastic track from
the album Cosmic Trancer with a nice melody. Second up is Slinky Wizard with
the cool track Supernatural. "They Have Established Contact With The Red
Planet.". Very good track with loads of samples and an cool, spacey
atmosphere. Next up is Technossomy with a track that starts slowly but soon
develops into a stomping killer! Brilliant track. Then we have Green Nuns
with a truly atomic track! :o) An extremely fast, full-on, co0Oo0OoO0L track
with a brilliant melody and nice ending. Finally there's Sheyba who delivers
a slower but very melodic track, with a nice bass-line pumping beneath the
surface. Also an amazing track. All in all this compilation is a KILLER! No
doubt, this is the shit and offers very-high quality psychedelic trance at
its best. If you stumble upon this compilation do not hesitate to buy it and
get a load of the very best of the oldies but goodies. Rating 9,1/10 Bom

What a lush double LP release from the legendary Flying Rhino Records!
Very trippy and enhanced cover art, with remarkable vinyl mastering, especially when taking into consideration how old the tracks are, and last but not least, the music:
Masaray, a pioneering duo drop by with what is to my ears their greatest track ever, Time Traveler Of Trance, which is just that. Long, epic, melodic and very intricate for a track as old as it is. Definitely a number to check out if you care to discover stuff the genre would end up getting built upon.
Slinky Wizard and The Green Nuns Of The Revolution, some of my favorite FRR heroes, both deliver two straight forward, acidic, fast and melody driven tunes, out of which Atomic Armadillo would probably take the crown. Wow, for a 1995 track, this sure is explosive, with torrents of sonic energy and acid fury teleporting themselves from the vinyl grooves into your brain. Fantastic.
Technossomy and Sheyba, a collab between Elysium and Jean Borelli of the Orion fame, deliver melodic bliss just as we'd get to expect from them during the later years. While Sheyba's Ganesh is generally the more appreciated tune here, James Monro and Matt Evans really hit it on the spot with the massive The Joker! May be just a little harder on the kick than the material they'd get known for afterwards, but it's a colossal track on its own, with a well crafted melody, but not too heavy on the synths or in the face as their more known classics.
Overall judgement? Five sheer classics across two vinyls released on one of the genre's back then most prominent labels is what you get here. For old school freaks, it hardly gets better. Essential stuff.
