The track from Plexus is an extract of their album, one of their best tune. All the rest of the comp are unreleased tracks. Very good work comes from Domi, Yahel+Jorg (i don't agree with Deathposture , this track contains nice harmony fill in with emotion and childness atmosphere ), Talamasca (the most energic stuff of the comp), Cosma (the Arpeggio melody played at guitar reminds me Zebra from X Dream).I'm not conviced by the remix of power of celtics except this one the rest is good. If you like melodic and psychedelic trance , buy Lightbeams it's for you. rating:7/10

Shiva Space Technology have brought me many happy times. Shidapu, Shiva Sidpao, Yahel and the likes, so I had high expectations when receiving this CD back in December 2002.

The promotional material stated "Let some lightbeams during the dark European wintertime" . Ehh?? S.S.T. always cracks me up with their crappy English and funny spelling errors. Take a look at the backcover of Yahel's "For The People" for a huge bunch of errors!..

Anyway - the question is, whether these tracks can provide me with some light in dark times of winter - and YES I'm happy to say that they can thank-you-very-much! A short introduction to the tracks:

(#1) Nice start. Happy uplifting morning-trance.. My mind is going - there's no question about it.

(#2) Ahh.. Very good track here from Mr. Pastor. I'd like to take a closer look at that iceflower-garden for sure. Very nice melody in this track!

(#3) . Yahel On Jörg? . Ehhw. Sounds like a dodgy gay-porn flick that I don't wanna see. This track has a very cheesy intro, which is brutally interrupted by a very bangy bass. Aaarhg.. and to top it of, there a kid singing/humming towards the end of the track.. Ehhw. Skip this track!

(#4) Better track than it's predecessor . As the artists-name suggest this is heavily invaded with guitar-riffs.. But the guitars are well-fitted and this is a nice, happy track!

(#5) Like the Program Change comp had a cover of Psycho, this comp has a cover of the classic Erez-track Power Of Celtic, and some might say that the track has been butchered, but I actually like this track. Once again it is heavily soaked in guitars, so if you don't like that, you'll hate this track. Quite ok track I think, and nice taster from the Lemurians album "Crystal Minds".Oh, one more thing: What's with the artist names collaboration trend? I'm mean - what will be next: Infected Space Jörg On Mushroom Meets Talamasca Vs. Cat Yahel Who Battles GMS Featuring Astral Nomad? Enough is enough!

Moving on to (#6) which is one of the best tracks here. Very cool, powerful track from Sphero! Nicey nice!

(#7) is DJ Lestat with the fastest track on this comp.. A samples says "Very nice" and well, yes that's what it is. Spooky ending too! ;o).

(#8 ) Quite average track. I could wish for more drive in this track, but it has potential..

(#9) Last track, and according to psy-tradition a track with a smaller Bpm-count. This track is pretty good and a very worthy last track..

To conclude, a compilation with many good tracks. Best are 2, 5, 6 & 7. If you feel like some nice, psychedelic uplifting morning-tracks you should definitely go for this compilation. Critics will label this Erez-mastered-it-so-it's-cheesy, but luckily we can't all share the same tastes. All I know is that I liked this, and would recommend this to any fan of uplifting trance. Beautiful cover too! 8/10
