While I am an indebted fan of the Infinity Project, some Hallucinogen and the Mystery of the Yeti, Shpongle has never moved me. Maybe I have listened to way too much Goa Trance and had high expectation for Shpongle, but for me this type of music feels contrived and over thought out. If you never heard any Classic Goa Trance, maybe one would find this music cool in some way, but for me, this just feels like a hybrid of many musical meanderings that have never worked, and for me, never will. There were artists before Shpongle who have tried this style of music and many have come after. There is one thing in common: I always want to turn it off.

We could ask why, on so gorgeous an edition, they didn't include the full-length version of "...And The Day Turned To Night", the CD being seemingly the only medium to have featured it (almost 20').
Otherwise, all-around masterpiece.

It is very sad to see the 2017 RM being sold here for 500 pounds or so. If only there was droit de suite (artist's resale rights) then Posford and Ram could make some money from these scalpers.

Let me preface this by saying this album is easily one of my favorites of all time, when I had it on itunes it had over 120 full playthroughs. The sound is just incredible on this remaster, it is one of the best sounding vinyl records I own. The music has this 3-D element to it, that along with how complex shpongle songs are, leads to a "river" of psychedelic sounds. Rajas' flute just soars, and the bass is absolutely monstrous, when listening to Monster Hit I close my eyes and when I open them I wear a smile like the cover art :::D

As an aside, and the only negative for me besides the limited nature, is the track order. Shpongle Falls ending meshes so well with Monster Hit, it should have been left alone imo. I keep having to retrain my ear as I hear the flutes in Shpongle Spores after the dripping sounds ending in Spongle Falls. Also C2 Spacepants is pressed into the label so is a very noisy listen, I usually pass on this bonus track as it is just too noisy for me.

Writings on Labels seem to be made by their owners. My copy has plain white labels without anything written on them.

Seems like a pretty nice pressing. The remastering really makes a difference - makes certain sounds that aren't as clear "pop" a lot more. A lot of the synths seem to sound considerably different to me, especially on "...And The Day Turned To Night". The book setup it comes in is really high quality. Glad I was able to get ahold of this one.

I missed this one since I had no idea it was coming. Really poor information from the label and the artist about it. I also feel a bit tricked, since I spent money on the first remake a few months ago, promised to be an exclusive 500 copy edition. Now they changed the color of the vinyl just to be able to make more copies, and even more exclusive by only making 400 copies. It’s nothing but despicable.

Amazing album at the time - changed the game and set the template for that style of dubby chillout with exceptional production values. This was way ahead of most other dance music at the time IMO. No after party mong session in the late 90's was complete without a bit of this. However, after this EVERYTHING started to sound the same. Now whenever I hear a chillout tune 20 years later i usually think; 'another one that sounds like shpongle'!!
