An absolute legend for those of us into hard acid trance, '90s style. Seriously, this guy's first seven singles are just incredible. To my mind---and aside from the one possible exception of Pablo Gargano---Michael Kores made the best acid trance from that era (and I like Solar Quest, Kai Tracid's various monikers, and numerous other stalwarts of the scene, so that is no small praise). The vinyl release of "Tryland" is good, too, if not quite on the level of the first five Cores EPs.

Granted, starting in 2000, Michael went a different direction with his music, which is totally fine, but it wasn't my cup of tea. Make no mistake, though: Between 1995 and 1999, this guy could simply do no wrong. And his work as Albion on Time Unlimited was very good, as well.
