Notes

This compilation is exactly the same as Goa Mix, except that the discs are inverted.

Disc 2 is also the same as disc 3 of Clubber's Guide To Goa Trance.

Track 1-2 incorrectly given as "Bypass Unit - Tunnel Floatation" - it's actually the same track as 2-4, only differently mixed.
Track 1-10 incorrectly given as "Grey Spook (Eastside Mix)".

I largely agree with jan's review, though as a 17 year old rebellious kid when this came out, this comp was the soundtrack to my late night car rides for a long time. Super heavy, pounding, relentless goa trance that was indeed formulaic and repetitive, but also featuring some gems. Obviously, X-Dream's splendid 'The Second Room (A-Trip)' as well as Bypass Unit's unforgiving 'Zenia (Fat Freddy Mix '97)', the latter of which is still one of my all-time favorite goa tracks. While this comp has not aged well in the slightest, the nostalgia factor is still high for me, and it's something that I will actually return to from time to time. Also, the mixing is not half bad for a somewhat generic Zyx comp. Each track plays its entirety for the most part, with subtle but effective blends in between.

2 CD's of your regular goa pounding. As is the issue with the genre in general, this compilation is at times an irritating display of heavy lack of innovativity and the same trivial, cheesy ideas and solutions that the majority of tracks throughout the two CD's are built upon. The culprits here are Hypnotic Records from Denmark, who are to blame for 14 tracks of the 21 in total.
Volumes 2 and 3 in the series proved to be even more dreadful; here, CD1 at least has two splendid psy/goa bleeders in a row to show for: X-Dream's <i>The Second Room (A-Trip)</i> and Kuro's <i>Plastomer 1''</i>. However, as there are thousands of far better goa compilations out there, this one is a definite no-no.

In my opinion, this is the best low-price Goa-Mix CD you can get. A brillant selection of great artist with their best trax. Starting with psychedelic Sunflower, including MFG Colorbox and Bypass Unit. A great psychoactive Mindtrip. The best issue of the ´World of Goa-Trance´- series!
