    I don't understand why the LP version is 6:40 long, and the CD version is 6:22 long??

      Could have been called Twisted II, as its right up there with its antecessor, both in terms of quality and mood. Definitely a classic, side by side with Dragon Tales, Beyond the Infinite and We Created our Own Happiness.

        The Lone Deranger is, in my opinion, one of Psytrance's most representative albums, THIS IS NOT GOA TRANCE. It has a very different environment to Goa, its melodies and sounds can resemble the Classical Mushroom of Infected Mushroom or the Dragon Tales of KoxBox. It's true that it can contain some element or theme of Goa, since his previous album Twisted is a great mix, but this one, definitely is Psytrance

          This album is a sharp drop off in quality from Twisted. I like the first two tracks, but the rest of the album? Not so much. 2/5.

            Aside from Classical Mushroom, this is proly the strongest psytrance album I've ever laid my ears on. It's so sick yet so energetic at the same time I feel like an orgasm was on its way when I first listened to this shit. If any of my classmates are willing to try these I bet it'd blow their minds within seconds.

            5/5 IMO, Simon Posford at the top of his game.

            "There is an area of the mind that could be called unsane, beyond sanity, and yet not insane. Think of a circle with a fine split in it. At one end there's insanity. You go around the circle to sanity, and on the other end of the circle, close to insanity, but not insanity, is unsanity."

              like everyone else, i believe the same thing , this is one of the most amazing goa-psy albums ever created!!
              posford is a genius,all the tunes are amazing in structure, melodies and basses.
              all the album is a masterpiece but for my the real gold is Jiggle Of The Sphinx, just listen this tune, when is raining, dance sorrounded the nature!!! thats is a incredible experience for everyone! thank you Simon.

                Can't quite figure how come this album got only 2 reviews....

                A masterpiece, Must have, must listen, all legendry album.
                every single track is extremely good. you can listen to it separately or in one piece. it doesn't matter. it's still be great. this album is definitely in my favorite elctronic albums list.

                Imagine: Isolated Ocean beach, clear sky, warm sun, the waves gently touching the sand, lying down on the warm sand, getting relaxed, powerfull high quality headphones on your ears, powerfull mp3 player, closing your eyes, and this album playing as you fall into deep and peaceful hypnotic state of mind.
                letting yourself go*........... EPIC.

                *I have listend to this album about 20 times in that exact way..

                  Not much I can say really, except that this CD is one of the best Goatrance albums ever produced!!

                  A defining album for the genre, Posford once again crafts together a tryptamine-drenched sonic concoction with as much detail and precision as a modern Forumla 1 team (maybe more). The basslines are generally fast and pumping while Posford's use of the synthesizers and effects I have yet to see surpassed. Somehow he manages to put it all (and there is alot of it) together so perfectly!

                  Surprising to see just one other review for this truly EPIC album! A definite MUST HAVE!

                    Its shocking to see no comments on this legendary release! After Hallucinogen's ground breaking debut in 1995 with the much celebrated Twisted, Simon Posford had the envious task of following up on a well loved and accepted classic. He goes about it with ease, crafting new structures of melody, expanding the classical Hallucinogen soundscapes to more deep and pounding levels.

                    Starting from with the well known LSD sanity-unsanity sample we slowly delve into the Demented world of Hallucinogen! Squelching acid lines meet the rolling rhythms from Twisted as sounds pop in out, creating, leading and ultimately defining the tunes. Trancespotter and Snarling being perfect examples. Horrorgram adds percussive elements to the stomping mix. Gamma Goblins features seriously twisted levels of sonic manipulation which are intense yet melodic.

                    The Lone Deranger is a worthy follow up to Twisted and Simon Posford has once again pushed the levels of Psytrance in a new direction by taking the old-school Goa melodies and adding the Psy influenced tech vibes. All of the tracks on this album are gold, just as Twisted. It stands the test of time and gives today's commercial sounding "psy-trance" a run for their money, 10 years after being released! In my opinion that's what defines a classic, It sounds just as good as the day I first heard it.

                    A must have for anyone into Goa, Psy-trance.
