I am a 29-year-old guy from Sweden who's deep into psy-trance, but I can also dig trance, hard dance, hardcore, hardstyle and sometimes other styles as well. I have a big variety of favorite artists and a wide taste considering music. I collect CD's with Infected Mushroom, Talamasca and Space Buddha, but also Gregorian.

From the start, I listened to 'normal' boring music, like everybody else (in Sweden). Then I heard O-Zone, a great group from Moldava. I got their album for my birthday, excellent CD. On the CD there were two remixes. Dragostea Din Tei (Dj Ross Extended Remix) and Despre Tine (Prezioso & Marvin Remix). And those songs showed me the right way. Of course, I had heard Groove Coverage before, they were the first trance artists for me, and will always be number one. Anyway, I downloaded music with Prezioso & Marvin and Dj Ross, found more songs by them, and some Remixes by other artists. That way I found more artists, and so the music sense develops. After a few years, I heard hardcore. I found many hits on Angerfist when I searched for some music I wanted. I downloaded and tried it out. It was new and exciting, and I kinda liked it. Of course, there is bad hardcore as well as there is bad trance. But some of the hardcore melodies were much... deeper and reached to me more than the usual trance. Some time later the same thing happened again, but with the group Infected Mushroom. I got a lot of hits on Infected Mushroom when I searched for trance and stuff, so I thought it had to be good since there were so many songs. I gave it a try. I was cool. But it didn't have the extra touch that trance had. I thought. But I listened to the 2 songs I had. I remember that it was Bombat and Meduzz. The bass was awesome. It was a new experience. I downloaded more, because it was cool, not because I actually liked it. I wasn't bad, but it wasn't the music I listened to. But slowly, I started to like it. On a site called thedjlist.com I searched for the top artists in the world, to try some other artists out and have something to download. Many of the artists didn't give many results when I searched. But when I searched for Talamasca a whole CD was available for download. I am some of a perfectionist and I like when things are nice and tidy, when things are complete. So when a whole album is there for me to download, of course, I download it. Just as Infected Mushroom, this was cool. But this was more speed and bass, Infected Mushroom has more of an own style.
The album by Talamasca was Zodiac. I liked the song Aquarius, since I am an Aquarius I tried it first. I liked the strings and that the song wasn't rushing, the slow lines gave it a relaxing feeling. Then I listened to the whole album, really gave it a chance. But still, it wasn't my thing. It took a few months. But now he is one of my favorite artists.

Top 5 CD's:
Mike Oldfield - Ommadawn
Sesto Sento - Come Together
Atma - The Secrets Of Meditation
Infected Mushroom - Converting Vegetarians II
Koan (3) - The Way Of One

Agreed, it’s the reason why I bought the album. Heard it in an episode of Dark, and it immediately went on my wantlist.

In all probability, the best California Shunshine album made throughout the years. Most of the songs are remakes, but what remakes they are! These version have the progressive touch of the originals but with the power of today's psy-trance. The warmth ... See full review

Not available as CD. It's so tragic and pathetic to see artists abandoning physical formats. What happened to the music scene?

I am bewildered by your statement, and seriously wondering what there is to like about the track. Unlike tracks like Summer 89 and Avalanche, Dejavu lacks melody and feeling.

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 ... See full review

So many comments and ‘reviews’, yet it’s all bullshit.
It’s a good album, regardless of pressings or versions.
Get your priorities straight.

A really nice box set! High-quality vinyl, with great sound. For the price I paid (around €70) I think it's a bargain. The only downside is that the box is very sensitive to dirt.

It was a real joy to see a new submission by Atma, and an even bigger joy that he has not given up on the true music scene by abandoning CDs. As soon as I saw the submission I ordered the CD from PsyShop, and here we are, a week later.

I think you've listened to the wrong CD, mate. This is an album, not a compilation, lol. So your rating is probably off as well. You are probably looking for Positive Alchemists Vol.3.

Nothing pointless about it. I like Boney M., I have a 5 CD album box, but none of the vinyls. I just ordered this, containing 9 vinyls, all remastered, for a very reasonable price.

This shit is quite trippy. Feels more developed and psychedelic than the second album.
Actually a vibe of Sesto Sento/Gataka in there somewhere. I’m surprised by how much I like it.

This album is very different from their other creations. At first, I found it to be okay, good background music. But after getting acquainted with it over time, I've come to really enjoy it. Some of the tracks are so spot on that it's crazy.
