Total time: 73:30

"Beyond the health food shops and new age therapies lies the mystical world of underground ambient. Psychedelic powerful aural sound poems soothe chill and entertain one's aching mind to the ultra cool-out zone exploring & probing new frontiers. Sampling the universe and triggering the future. This music is multi-dimensional, and vitamin enhanced. Lie back, ajust your hammock, close your eyes, dissapear, merge. While sound becomes colour and colour becomes sound..."

As Columbia in the Rocky Horror Picture Show would say, "It's OK..."

Sound quality not that great (CD version, bit muffled sounding/over bassy/low mid heavy), could do with a nice modern remaster. The music is middling, very noodly and meandering (which, admittedly, is sometimes just the ticket...), like The Ozric Tentacles, only more synth/sample heavy, and not as accomplished.

As with 'Mystery of the Yeti', for me it's more interesting for the people and labels involved as a cultural/historical artefact, and pointer towards what was to come, a precursor to the whole Psy Chill thing etc. A lot of the early Goa/Psy artists did give it up and continued along this more Chill/Ambient vein, and are still doing so today.

I'll play it once every few years and enjoy it, as an album of its times, but I don't get all the "best/most amazing album EVER!!!" posts here. :)

I appreciate this album the more I listen to it.

This is indeed one of the most genius, inspirational, transcendental, mind expanding, and beautiful works of art...created late in the 20'eth century...and it will endure forever as one of mankind's greatest achievements...next to the "moon landing", "the pyramids of Giza", and "the creation of the microprocessor"..

The Infinity Project was created by Raja Ram, Graham Wood and Simon Posford - giants of the psy trance scene. Mystical Experiences is the second cd of them. It's one of my favourite psychedelic ambient albums, which is very hypnotic and visional. Get you to incredible beautiful places where sound becomes colour and colour becomes sound... You should turn off your phone, close the doors, curtain off, lay on your bed, close your eyes and flow with this perfect melodies and sounds sometimes enriched by flute playing by Raja. Must have electronic relase. Absolute classic. Magnificent!

Imagine your collection of electronic albums as a perfect square, and draw the different albums into their respective corners defined by their musical style. This album is one of four cornerstones. Mystical Experiences is the perfect piece of the puzzle where "psychedelic" and "ambient" comes together. The minds and creativity of a trio of skilled musicians; Simon Posford, Raja Ram and Graham Wood (all members of the group "Mystery Of The Yeti") comes together and results in a magnificent release full of diverse and excellent tracks. The different tracks blend into one another so well, you easily drift away into other thoughts.. It's a truce masterpiece from TIP, and it's sure to a make firm stand in any collection of music.

The first album by the TIP Records founders. For some reason they put it out on Blue Room Released rather than their very own TIP label. On TIP they however put out the Feeling Weird album in 1995 too.

This album is the definition of “psychedelic” ambient. You don’t find the sounds of nature as in normal ambient. Except for the magical flute of Raja Ram, and occasionally some ethnic sounds, the most part of it is made of multiple sound layers and lots of melodies which are always in motion. It’s complimented with loads of psychedelic effects and some tracks have a broken beat. Also there is a heavy dubby bass most times which when coupled with some broken beat as explained above the music will surprisingly move you and still kick ass despite this being ambient.

This is wicked psy-ambient! Try Mystical Experiences, Alien Patrol and the twenty minutes long Under The Overtones.

A masterpiece!
