    My favourite Koxbox album and the peak of their discography. I only want to add to the comments below that for me this extremely psychedelic album conjures a unique atmosphere of tropical psychotropism; can we call it psychotropicalism? It is possibly the closest any music gets to the humid claustrophobia of the streets of "Bladerunner", even beating out Vangelis, or summoning up the misty river of "Heart of Darkness" or "Apocalypse Now". It reminds me of Talking Heads' "Remain in Light", which also has this very steamy, sultry atmosphere thickened by political intrigue. Any work which can almost single handedly create its own genre and milieu, psychotropicalism in this case, is an artwork worth taking seriously. ~*~

      I came in contact with goa trance two years after this album has been released, and listened to it for the first time in 2008, 10 years later. If I knew what I have missed all these years ...
      Anyway this is the greatest album I've heard for a long long time. Also the artwork, as already mentioned above, is stunning, it's always a pleasure to look at it while listening. Favourite tracks are 1, 2, 3, 6!, 7!!.

        It's very rare I can recommend an album and say that all the tracks are absolutely masterpieces... When this album was released, I was totally blown away hearing the creativity in this album. At the time it was released, it got mixed feedback from the global Goa trance scene, because it brought something new to the scene; less typical Goa melodies and more far out psychedelic vibes than we had ever heard in this scene before. But, the album has grown on people, and is now considered as a real classic in the psytrance/Goa scene worldwide. Back then, Koxbox was three guys, something I feel helped to make this album to such an outstanding result. Peter Candy with all his creativity, Ian Ion the studio wizard and Frank E with his crazy ideas made them to dream team! Back then, I had the honour to see the three of them live at a rave party in Oslo, Norway, where they served most of these tracks. A live set that made me go totally mad on the dancefloor. I have actually never danced like this ever since! It was the ultimate head trip to listen to these tracks on a great soundsystem. What a memory! To my frustration, I was filmed by the national TV (without knowing it) while I was dancing, something that was shown on the next days news, focusing on drugs related to rave parties... Phone calls from family, friends, teachers etc came in, wondering what the hell I was on... Anyway, after this album Peter candy left the band, and Koxbox took a new direction with more minimal sound. This album is my best memory from 1997, with a unique sound which will probably never come back... Those were the days! Also the cover art is wonderful. A must have album for everyone interested in the psychedelic side of electronic music.

          I heard this album during my punk years back in '99 and I was absolutely stunned, I couldn't believe this kind of music exists. To me this is still the best goa trance album I've heard.
          The sounds here are incredibly psychedelic and the atmosphere is just hypnotic. It tends to set you in ver weird mood with every listen. I hope there were more music like this.
          Have to mention that the cover art is just beautiful.

            One of the most psychedelic albums in electronic music (just look at that cover). A very unique sound that reminds me of insects for some reason.
