This album is very interesting and its deffinetly worth the buy, so give it a chance, and you'll find some great stuff inside!

well, after first lisatening, i would say i didnt like it so much.
the style is full on night psychedelic music, but for me the sound of it is very bad, and there is too much noise, too dirty...
i am sure more listening is needed, though, so maybe i will review it later...the only problem is that after the first listening, i am not so excited from the idea of listening to it again....

but it is just a matter of taste i guess.

New Yorkers hit it with an all NY trance release, and it sounds mostly refreshing, with the right spirit, and a bit amateurish at times. But, you feel the people behind this release really have something to say, and believe in what they do- and that is worth a lot and felt in the music. You have here Deeper in Zen with and meditative sounds sewn delicately in the tracks, Mind Warp with excellent full on morning music, India Drop with his distinct atmospheric sound and few more artists giving a different story.

Deeper in Zen starts with the Calling- this was tested on the floor and it works- full on, but subtle, psychedelic, scratchy- great chanting calling you. Perfect to open the morning in nature. Mind Warp continues with another full on tune, scratchier, more psychedelic, full power, melodic- very good. The two of them combine next with a totally melodic and very energetic Liquid Dimensions (T3). Then Deeper in Zen again with another nice track. The next two tracks give an atmosphere change. Creamsicle with First Light (T5), a very different track, strong atmosphere, not very danceable but very enjoying to listen to. Onnomon next (T6) with a weird and confused track, weak sound, a lot of interesting bits that don't melt to one story. This has a potential to be at least 4 good tracks. Mind Warp again with another good one- very energetic with powerful melodic morning mayhem, bouncing groove and great atmosphere. India Drop (Opher from Sinister Funk) gives us a weird two faced tune (T8), half relaxed and groovy, almost jazzy, half psychedelic and quite full on- I like it. D-Space follows with a weird, dark & psychedelic track, good groove and nice percussion, but it gets lost a bit. India Drop & Deeper in Zen finish things with Subtle Energy, a massive kick, airy atmosphere, catchy groove and nice little scratchy parts. Excellent finish.

Bottom Line: a very good surprise coming from the big apple a very enjoyable CD with the right spirit, enough diversity and some kick-ass moments. Favorites: 1, 2, 5, 7, 10.
