I saw that CD when i got back home that week, and bought that without lots of thinking. there is a small booklet about Cosma, and some words from his close friends who are in the trance scene + a sticker of "Remember Cosma".

1. The Time Has Come : strong start with incoming bassline & cool FX. great start of the rhythm in 1:17!!! nice preccusion in the track.
a really great track for the dancefloor despite its slow BPM (138)
2. Lemon Light: cool hypnotic start of the track. more proggresive tune then full on (who cares! its great). good kickbass combo here. good stuff from 5:36.
3. Freedom: regular track, good sound, good leads & FX. nice slow track, imo not for dancefloor, more for home hearing...
4. Nonstop: great dancefloor track. awesome bassline, good kick, stomping FX. 4:56 the Cosma magic starts . that track worked great in the parties i heard that in
5. Ethno-bialick: too empty in my opinion, not enough sound layers. however really cool small melody and nice strings & FX.
6. People On Hold: energetic start with a good kickbass enterance. good power bass (like in Domestic - Stimulated), a dancefloor track, nice FX.
7. Keep Going: starts nicely, but i didnt like the stuff coming after the beat starts.
8. Yok Yok: weird start, goes smooth to the base of the track. nice preccusion, the track evolvs till 2:04, then some FX come (good for the dancefloor diggness), a long break in the middle of the track and the beat continues
9. Minimal Vertical: WOW! what a nice start here. good for the morning, nice background FX and good rhythm, gets uplifting from 5:09 to 5:40 (me like). nice relaxing tune to finish the album.

nice album from Cosma (RIP)
its a shame he will not create any more tunes

Well, what can I say about cosma... He was for sure one of the most talented artists. His second album is here to proove it!!! This album will make everyone to dance. I love all the tracks here. My favs are:1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8. The booklet with cosma's friend is a nice idea as a last "goodbye" for such a talented and young (only 24 years old) artist... Too bad for the scene that an artist like cosma is not here... He was one of my favorite israeli artists.
8.5/10 for nonstop. Probably one of the best releases for 2003           In This World Have Your Own Bpm...

The entire album is party music! But also great stuff to hear at home.
I can't stop listening to The Time has Come, Lemon Light, Yok Yok , Keep Going (amazing track), Non-Stop and People on Hold .
This album is perfect. Buy it!

One of the best albums of the year.
Incredible but only Avihen can do it – make a “nizahon” track (victory track) – I’m talking about track #4 (Nonstop) and to make it sound sooo good!
A totally dancefloor album, all tracks can be played at parties and they will sure lift everybody up.

As my recent review of the solar tribe fest this will be my first cd review in english before croatian(you will excuse my grammar mistakes especially coz I can't describe some sounds like I would in Croatian). Maybe not because I feel this cd to be special for its music, just because I think cosma deserves such a review. The cover artwork of the cd is nice, nothing really special but it really goes with the name cosma. And Hom-Mega have really gone far out with stickers, posters and a special inlay for those dj cd cases.

01. The Time has Come

This name is kind of ironic, it really gives this track a different meaning now. A shame it's a sad one. But I'll say right from the start that I'm not going to give this album a bigger rating just because of what happened. Anyways the tracks starts with a voice sample saying: "the time has come" and a nice mellow beat a bit slower than usual and of course the trademark cosma sounds, those really nice spacey melodies, but this time they are more darker and deeper. Then after a while some great percussions come in the background along with a stronger beat and start lifting the track higher. Also some really nice scratchy bleeps come in the background and the voice sample comes again. After a while there is this really great but silent melody in the background, after a while it gets more and more attention. Then there is a really nice break in the track and the only thing you hear are those melodic acordic sounds with the scratches and the track starts off again slowly driving till the end. Very nice intro track, maybe not that dynamic as other tracks but a lot darker than anything I've heard from cosma before.

02. Lemon Light

This track starts off with some scratches but these are a bit anoying, but a nice melody soon fills the background and some really cool drumwork starts in the background, the melodic sounds keep fading in and out until the beat starts. But those scratches are really bothering me, don't feel like they really fit into the track. Anywayz this track sounds a bit different from the first one, the beat mainly is a bit more progressive and it's really nice, coz the last track was more full on. Random percussive sounds keep apearring then about halfway through there is a nice short break but it continues again. It's a bit wierd but some sounds I hear in the background really remind me of some progressive trance artists. After a while these really cool distorted scratchy sounds appear and they blend really nice into the track. There is a break followed by the first scratchy sounds that I didn't like and then it starts again more heavily with all the elements that I described before, hey, this really is a progressive track

03. Freedom

I think this would be my favorite track on the cd. It starts kinda slow but the beat is here is perfect. This track is more progressive than any other. there are some nice noises in the background but then suddenly a really fantastic and groovy percussion appears that just blows me away, this is something that you would normally only hear in a son kite (or any big progressive trance artist) track. It just works perfectly, the percussive elements keep lifting up the track while the mellow melodies fill the background. I can't stand still while listening to this one. Some short scratches appear but then the driving melody just takes everything over. I don't think I've ever heard a more spacey melody than this one. Near the middle there is a short break and the track sort of comes back to the progressive nature, it keeps slowly building up with more percussions and distortions. In the middle there is a break with some bleeps and then the voice sample comes in saying: "the land of freedom" I guess this is Avihen's voice, it sounds like an israeli voice. Then after a while the melody kicks in again just moving you from one side to another and after a long break the tracks starts again with the percussions and beat and ends slowly with those great percussions from the start. Fantastic stuff, definetly my favorite track on the album.

04. Nonstop

This track is definetly more of a full on one. The beat is a lot darker and more powerfull and most sounds in the background sound scary and they echo. But then suddenly a really cool voice manipulated sample kicks in and kinda lifts the track. Also some short synth sounds appear and the track starts to sound more vibrant. Some sounds are a bit retro and even electro influenced. But halfway through there is little change, it just keeps driving with all the scary and deep sounds. After a while there is a break but this time only the beat stays with some simple melodies. Then a new short bleep sound comes in along with some children voices, suddenly there is a really strong percussion that keeps building up and the track starts to really get agressive and mainly stays that way till the end. Nice track but not really as good as I expected, in any case, great dancefloor material.

05. Ethno-Bialick

Now comes the ambient track with some nice echoing tribal sounds. It does sound a bit to empty but it really has a very deep atmosphere. Some voice samples come in but they only moan in the background and they are the only thing that keeps this track a bit more dynamic coz the background almost never changes, it just stays on a simple pattern, after a while there is a break and the voice samples get a bit stronger. Suddenly everything stops and the main theme melody comes in and it's really well...cosmic now things start to get a lot better coz there is also a nice piano part that reminds a bit on the old infected sounds. The track is really a sad one but I'm sure I'll play it in my chill out sets. It's really nice to end a set with.           DJ Dovla | Interchill Records, Flow Records
