    A great long album, contains a lot of variety compared to most trance albums where most of the tracks sound very similar to each other. Those who want a heterogeneous and interesting album should definitely give it a listen. Like the name "Relaxation" suggests, most of the tracks are quite chill, so those seeking for a hardcore adrenaline pump should look elsewhere.

    The sleeve might look really dull and uninspiring, but you don't rate a book by its cover, right?

      love this album, the orange disk was my go-to for sunday relaxation, chilling in my flat, the sun through the windows.

        I hate the fake trancey stuff offered on this long double album. Chunky sounds and choppy synth sounds show little effort on the 140+ bpm tunes. The slow paced ones are listenable day in and day out. Diamond Ring Effect was instantly given repeated listens. Blue Galaxie had to grow on me. The album starts out violently fast and gradually relaxes to nothingness. This stuff is not really goa nor is it psychedelic. It is more like happy trance into ambient trance.

          The second and the best album ever from Total Eclipse. Side one delivers the mind-blowing music you would expect from Total Eclipse back then, chaotic yet melodic, stomping yet warm Trance. All tracks on this disc are heavy except; “Blue Galaxie” which is a downtempo song, also a teaser of the second CD.

          Side two opens with the 10 minute long “Espanolizer”, my favourite on this side. It samples a guitar and a piano. The journey continues with the more uptempo “The Pendulum”, and the tempo seems to increase gradually with every song. None of the tracks is pure Ambient yet there is no breakbeat either. All tracks are 4/4 except the closing track “Gravity Mirage”. This track has a very tricky beat. When you think a 4/4 beat is coming it is broken again.

          In my opinion this is another essential on your shelves. Normally this CD shouldn't cost much like some other notorious sought after classics but if you want a new copy this album was reissued by Avatar in 2003, so there's no excuse ;)
