blissful is also the blissful hari om with a few chorus bv's from me. best way to tell on that track is pure and silky soprano= hari om; alto smoothie= michele the monkey luvR ;o)           In the depth of my soul there is a wordless song.

Dramatic mysterious opening develops around you slowly, surrounded by that grabbing spiraling rhythms and percussion that shakes you from within. Then those Spanish guitars just lift you up, supported by tons of emotional sounds that fly you high till the hit and run climax that leaves you there wondering what has happened, who are Western Rebel Alliance and where have they been hiding so far? Then those familiar moody sunset sounds follow and darkness creeps around you. The music slowly builds a visual world around you- it's dark, a bit spooky, the people are all around you- you start dancing- enjoy the ride! A real joyride it is, full of sneaky surprises and frenzy hectic and chaotic mind moves. Shpongle & Eat Static- and rumor says Simon & Merv have just completed an album... Still dazed from the last one, things get real weird- where the fuck are we? Have we been mysteriously teleported to a Finnish forest in the middle of the night? It's dark and cold, things are swishing all around us, pretty scary! How do we get out of here? Shall we press some button? Hey! Who's marching there? Oh, it's him, the shaman, I know his voice- he's OK, we follow him, no problem, and actually it's rather nice here, you know. The forest is gone, who are all these tribes gathered down there.. chanting.. dancing.. almost naked around the big fires (Prometheus did bring the fire from the gods, remember...)? Who are all these dancing red-orange bodies under the warm light rain? Who the hell cares? Let's join, nice and funky here... They say the spirits will come as well if we dance hard enough. Head is spinning, actually it feels like a Frisbee! Gotta slow down and relax a bit! Nothing more soothing than a flute! Delicious of Grandeur? Gotta be two English guys... "Nipples get hard"? English for sure. Seems we have to start dancing again. Oh, what to do! Here we go again- chill out? What chill out? Where have those Mexicans come from suddenly? Ariba, Ariba! And yet again my head feels like a Frisbee- story of my life. Well, It's dark and quiet again, a bit spooky as well, but the caressing sounds and vocals are here around you- just float on that Spanish guitar all the way to Goa, where a high tide of emotions is what it is all about, and who is better to transform Dorset into Goa sunrise moments than Totat Eclipse? I'm smiling hard here! What is she saying about that tiny head? Say again! Who's folding my head? Wow- what's happening? Something flips here- gotta be careful when you follow weird people talking... WOW where have we landed! This place is huge! Gotta be the Orient, judging by the sound, and the Shanti atmosphere- I think we'll just lay down here on these big pillows and let the mind float, and this one floats the heart as well- it's just a beauty, I guess. Ott in Hebrew is a sign- I wonder for what... seems a good sign, so far. And indeed, lying down like that, floating on music- a sea of blissful awareness- you can love, you can weep, you can dance for dawn... It's all out there- so beautiful, so unbelievably beautiful. And all because 13 years ago some girl told me about that party... gotta love life!

Bottom line: Remix? Original? Album? Compilation? Names? Directions? Dunno, this is just one long beautiful journey for me, and I know I'm yet to discover many surprises inside. It's told well, and maybe you just can't go wrong with so many excellent little stories. Highly recommended, and do yourself a favor- don't just put it in the background- this is no background music- dive inside. Favorites: the whole journey.

Bought this on sale at psyshop ($9.99), and I must admit I’m quite disappointed. Most of the CD didn’t really do anything for me, apart from the stunning Western Rebel Alliance remix of “Crystal Skulls”, and Otts remix of “Around The World In A Tea Daze”. The last track was ok, and Brothomstates was different and quite interesting, but not really my cup of tea.

Ok release overall, but not as good as I would have expected from Twisted.

Completely agree with Profane here. I couldn't have said it better. Only half of the tracks is any good. The rest is just filler.           "Subconscious unravels at the point of death, and all time it has known erupts into a moment. As death extinguishes us, so we become it."

Worth it for the Star Shpongled Banner remix by Brothomstates alone! Rest of the album is definately okay but the powerful experimental vibe of Brothomstates blows me away anytime I hear it...

Now if only Squarepusher would remix a Shponglistic tune or 2...
