A decent collection of post-Goa trance from both a bunch of (back then) established artists after their heydays and from (then) rising ‘stars’. The reason I bought this is for the Total Eclipse track, not for the quality of the track itself but because this seems to be the last released track from the French group as a trio. As the name suggest, it’s not a real Goa track but a very rough psychedelic track with a long breakbeat intro. It’s very reminiscent of their 1999 ‘chill-out’ album Access Denied, but style wise could certainly not fit in there. Nothing super special, but being a T.E. fan myself I had to buy this since it’s exclusive to this solid CD.

The best track is by the Infected guys. As the other reviewer says, it’s an extremely well accomplished and executed track. Could have certainly fit in their first on second album, and if you don’t like their voice samples the good news is that there are none here, but there’s still the guitar for those who don’t like it.

Saiko-Pod aka Koxbox deliver a tune with passages similar to their The Great Unknown album released a year before, only that when the alias ‘Saiko-Pod’ is used the track is more polished and less mind-boggling.

X-Dream’s Aspirin is a preview of the Tech-trance sound Irritant would have. Scary, yet atmospheric Psy-techno at its best.

Morphem had the courage to do something that in my knowledge no ‘conventional’ Goa trance artist made – sample a vocal track from almost half a century before. I like the way it’s mixed in the beginning and in the end.

All in all quite a decent CD with very nice cover artwork also.

This is the CD that brought me back to the Goa/Psy sound. I can understand why this comp doesnt' get high ratings, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't look out for it. If only for a few tracks this CD would be flawless, and almost is. If you haven't heard "symphonatic" by Infected Mushroom yet, you are seriously missing out. This could very well be the most accomplished Psytrance ever. This song convinced me that Infected Mushroom were the new leaders of the sound. The Yahel track is also amazing, with a loop in the chorus that will make you feel like you are "creating a bond with reality". The Saiko-Pod track is up there, and so is the Oforia track. The others don't live up to the greatness of these, but they have there own qualities as well. This ended up being a great point in the history of Psytrance, when the sound was still experimental and free. I hope there is a renaissance of this in the near future.
