Completely agree with the previous reviewer. This is an essential trance release and if you are into that music, you should definitely get to know the music of X-Dream, especially their first releases. This album is a milestone and although it has a certain differences with the original print (not only track positioning), it preserves this magic that makes you listen to it again and again.

The album still has it downsides like Automatic X and Live Fast Die Young which are inferiour quality and are more of a reminiscence of the era this was first released. They sound outdated and uninspired. However, the rest is top notch. Even if the 5th Dimension version here is not the 16 minute one, it still captures that majestic hypnotic element from the original. The C.O.T.L.G. original and remix are both superb and of course Trancesylvania X-Press leaves you radiating joy.

If you are into this genre of music, don't hesitate and grab this!

A pretty essential trance release. Originally released in 1993 with a different track positioning and artwork (which is long out of print now, so hold on to it if you've got a copy of the original). This was one of the first records to pave the way for goa trance. The only other artist at the time (released his debut album the same year as a matter of fact) that i can compare with is Juno Reactor. While JR's material was more fast and experimental, X-Dream decided to take the deep, space-like approach to dance music. Tracks like The 5th Dimension really do feel like you're traveling through space and time. There are a lot of memorable spoken samples on here (tracks 2, 4, 5 and 7), as well as memorable beats. Today, as I right this review, X-Dream has changed quite a bit since their early goa days... but classics like this won't be forgotten so easily.
