Maybe not every song and I easily could've done without the nonsense at the end of each track but it certainly has that gritty east coast feel. Boom bap style. His best album by far.

Bit of a snooze. The last track is the best on the album.

A whole lot of mediocrity to be found here. None of it memorable.

I don't believe this to be one of their greatest releases, but that's more because they have produced some of the greatest chill-out ever. This is still good, very slow moving relaxing music that hovers pretty close to the drone side of ambient while ... See full review

I agree with the previous review. It's not chill and not psy, but somewhere nestled within that annoying limbo in between. Certainly cannot hold up with the passage of time.

I would've liked this better had the music not been so loud and annoying.

Unfortunately this didn't appeal to me. It sounds like experimental tinkering without the dark vibes.

Holy sh*t is this boring. Comparing this 2nd version with the first is like comparing Taco Bell with Ruth Chris Steakhouse. Sure it's mainly psytrance this time around, but it's not really good psytrance.

Quite the dark album from Miranda that gives zero f*cks about what you think her music should sound like in 2001. Anxiety sounds like some FLA Flavour of the Weak tracks. Very psychedelic. Keep Calm grows in intensity from a growl to a full throated ... See full review

While Phenomena remains her greatest musical achievement this album isn't half bad with its fingers in a lot of genre pies. The Mars Needs Women mix is a short groovy injection and tracks like Eyedentify, Earth & Space, and the remix to Gnocchi keep the ... See full review

Dude, this is so woefully average. If you couldn't see this before it was released, perhaps it's time to step back and reflect.

This is a rather tame effort that sounds quite samey all the way through. No drama. No...story. The talent is there, you can hear it, but he seems to take the path of least resistance. Instead of expanding the track and pushing it to the deep pools ... See full review

Overall I'm a little disappointed with this effort. His work on Ep's like Colored Reality, Into The Forest, and I Will Fly Again really showcased his ability to turn the music into a spectacle, something to behold. Detailed and involved. The album is ... See full review

I really like the groovy style he adopted for his progressive trance with it's silly samples and minor key "circus tent" melodies, but there isn't very much to be excited about here. 20 tracks of the same style where he doesn't build much momentum can ... See full review

This album is kind of depressing, but well told. Makes you feel sorry for the ones that have to go through life like this. Full of old RnB samples and slow drudgery. Really impressed with Red Pill's style. Good album.

So incredibly well done. This is a time machine back to the nineties with two superb groups mixed together. Soul Flower is so on point, Bonita Keeps On Passin' Me By is silky smooth. Serious this is some chocolate on peanut butter niceness.

Even ten years on is still a solid compilation from Yabai. Well, that is until the last two tracks made me want to stab sharp pencils in my ears.

First disc was doing very well until the twelve car pile up that we call Madonna was thrown in there. There oughta be a law. Cd 2 drives this bus in less of a 4 on the floor direction and leans heavier on breakbeats and vocals. Like the haunting Fear ... See full review

Such a fantastic album if you're a fan of powerful, melodic, golden age goa trance. You know it's a monster when a classic like Mahadeva is one of the weaker tunes.
posted a comment on Hardfloor - Respect. over 2 years ago
I love me some Hardfloor, but this early techno sound pales in comparison to what they've done as of late. For example, the almost the first three minutes of Mustard Cornflakes was painful. Lots of annoying synth patterns. If you think this still has ... See full review

Wow, this really blows. Of course it's dated, but I've seen less cheese on a pizza. It's like a collection of presets molded into an eyeroll. People gave this a 5? Was it f*cking opposite day?
posted a comment on Elegy (7) & Suduaya - Light Source EP. over 2 years ago
The first track was easily the best offering, full of detail and lush sounds, but the other three lacked that complexity. The galloping bass line numbs the mind and that's present in two of the tracks. Both artists have done better music than this.

This is going to be a short review of this album. The rhymes seem legit, but the beats are tired. And if you can't get the head bobbin, you're wasting your breath. Aside from the Rappers Delight cover this is a swing and a miss. Needs to be a remix ... See full review

The first three albums from this project were wonderful exercises in the melding of synth pop and melancholia that worked very well. Perhaps a less goth version of Depeche Mode. It didn't hurt their exposure that they were on the forefront of music ... See full review

3 members of Duran Duran? Better than nothing I suppose. Simon's voice is haunting and the CD is gold for it's pure musicality. Brings back a lot of memories.

I'm going to differ with the previous commenter's comment. There are loads of goa trance compilations that put this one to shame. I like the beginning and the end, but I feel it loses its way in the middle. From X-Dream to Juno Reactor can you look me ... See full review

The 10 minute gap between the end of the last track and the "bonus" track is unbearable. Why do this? Just add another track.

I have to disagree here. I suppose if you are a big fan of drone ambient than this would be for you. No matter how many layers you add, an 11 minute track with no variation is boring as crap. And that is what you get for the majority of the tracks. ... See full review
