Regarding Goa Trance, the only track that fits into that genre on this comp is track 1 and it's a pretty good track, but I can't see spending 30 for it.
Various - Surrender To The Vibe
posted a review of Various - Surrender To The Vibe. 10 days ago
For me there is only one reason to own this comp and it is for the first track by Mammal which can also be found on vinyl. Give it time to open up at the 3:30 point. Has a Star Sounds Orchestra vibe to me and I like it a lot. The rest of the comp is... See full review
Various - Surrender To The Vibe
posted a review of Various - Surrender To The Vibe. 10 days ago
I didn't find this comp very interesting except for the first track by Mammal which can be found on vinyl, which I picked up some years ago. This track reminds of some of Star Sounds Orchestra's better tracks. The rest of the tracks are status quo,... See full review

posted a review of Yahel - Waves Of Sound. 11 days ago
Although I enjoyed listening to this, I don't feel that I would want to listen to it again. The tracks were very catchy with rich sounds and good story lines, but the movement from Goa to Progressive Trance within tracks weakened the tracks for me. ... See full review
D.I.D. - Alcyone

Early Trance/Goa Trance classic. Worthy addition to a Goa Trance collection for the year 1993. Very nice morning track with the V2 mix....just too bad the track is so short. Maybe you could put tracks 1 and 3 together somehow to solve that issue.

I wasn't much impressed with disc one, but disc 2 is an amazing collection of very unique tracks ranging from psychedelic, to Goa Trance to Progressive Trance. Very eclectic mixture of very high quality tracks. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the... See full review

As an old school devotee and collector of Classic Goa Trance, it has taken me awhile to come across this release. I have heard a number of Filteria tracks through the years and thought they were solid as far as new school Goa Trance goes. I didn't... See full review
Total Eclipse - Waiting For A New Life
posted a review of Total Eclipse - Waiting For A New Life. about 1 month ago
Waiting for a new life is certainly one of most creative Goa Trance tracks from the year 1994 heralding the beginning of the golden years of the genre from 1995 to 1998. The other 2 tracks weren't my cup of tea.
Various - Sundrops (Light In Motion)

A nondescript collection of old and new that all have one thing in common.......nothing memorable. That being said there is nothing here that is essential. Too bad, because there are some really great artists here.

The Gene Joke and Conspiracy theory tracks are excellent but don't waste your money on this overpriced comp. Buy the vinyl.

This is an obscure release that will have fallen under the radar for most. Any release that has a Xerox and Freeman track on it always gets my attention and this first track does not fail to deliver. Whats great about Xerox and Freeman is that you... See full review

The Lower World mix is the winner here with a nice trancey, trippy, tribal groove. At 12 and a half minutes, you can go take a shower during your set and this great track will still be playing when you get back to the decks.

Track 4. PharaOm always manages to bring some warmth and Soul to the rather mediocre world of New School Goa Trance with the colab on the track Darkness. PharaOm is my favorite New School Goa artist. Why? Because PharaOm has managed to bring forward... See full review

This release is really all about the track Alien Pets. If you feel it is worth to pay 100 dollars for this one track to have it on vinyl, then go for it. But you are getting very little else that you can't find on other 12's and CD comps. Alien... See full review

Krakatoa starts out really deep and dreamy and then quickly implodes with dissonant and overbearing sounds. Too bad.......the track had great potential. Futura is better, but this release is a pass for me.

Nothing here that holds up well enough to be added to a set of Goa Trance. Too bad because it would have been great to add a Vedic chant vibe to my Goa Trance collection and to a set of Goa Trance. Sadly, this type of vibe is surprisingly missing in... See full review

The previous reviewer is correct: Track 1 Solid State is a must have in the history of Classic Goa Trance. It's a very raw, upbeat track with an electronic bagpipe sample that has a wonderful vibe and is a very special track from the year 1993. ... See full review

If you like Chi-AD then you will like a few of the tracks. For me, I enjoyed the first track a lot, but the rest of the release falls off after that so this is a pass for me.

Although I am not a fan of Psy-Trance, I thought the track Supreme Being was very well done... Maybe because it's a bit of a Goa Trance Hybrid is the reason I find it interesting.
