mazal tov homsy.
This is an excellent disc showcasing some of the newest israeli talents. My favourite tunes would be Side Effect "Kata" I think this guy is just AWESOME look out for all his music. Maze "The Final Ki-ay" is amazingly beautiful as well, holding its story for almost 15 minutes. All of the tracks are nice, and I think this is a very enjoyable listening experience.

Tal (helen) - this is really a childish way to say things.
Its not a matter of taste when u put it like that . You are basically saying "Everyone this cd stinks dont go next to it otherwise a nuclear bomb will go off". This is not constructive criticism. C'mon mate you are a professional all of us expect much better things from you and not degrading comments. Lastly, all the artists in this CD and the label are very serious. Hope u are happy and well in Finland, i am really looking forward to hearing "Fata Morgana" this summer~! Goodluck with it ahi.
Best wishes, love, and respect to everyone - Chaitu

well Helen said some nasty things, but I think this section should have good AND bad reviews. I mean all you "pure" trance fans need to have a way to get feedback before you buy CD's. If you don't get the MP3's then how will you filter out the good CD's from the bad? I know that it probably hurts for an artist to read bad things about his music, but like Rosengren says there is always a flipside.
BTW: This has nothing to do with this particular CD, I haven't heard it yet.           Both teams played hard

Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
Sure, I don't agree with what Tal said, and I specially don't agree with how he said it, but I respect his take on things.
Democracy is what this is all about. One's gotta be able to disagree and yet still be respected.

ok, ok, I really didnt mean this criticizm to sound so bad, I take my words back, since I mean only good for Tranclucent. I still think that this release should have 'boiled' a bit more, the material is still immature (IMO), and I DO hope that the future releases will improve (and of course I'll hand all help if asked). the more releases we get, the stronger we are, and that should be the starting point for everything.

so Homsy, sorry for the harsh words, congrats for the release and I hope it will succeed on the market.

bye

Way to go Homsy for this production.

i have to say the japanese to whom i showed this Cd were deeply impressed.

As for me, not all the tracks are to my liking, but most of the Cd is damm solid and definitly not as immature (except maybe for 1 or 2 tracks) as stated here.
it has some very good moments,especially the ambient part.
This is an excellent product with a real story behind it,something rarely seen in this scene.           http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ace-Ventura/6139679270

Ok...
a few words.

the Japanese parts are brilliant in their context. people, you should read those carefully, you might learn somthing (i particularly like the excellent dragon bit).
now, for the music.

Perplex's opening tune - YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH! this is what i call a STOMPER!
Molecular - Waking up - an old fav of mine, definetly a twist in the Molecular style. a sweet, simple tune, with it's own complexisity.
Misted muppets - i had some trouble understanding where this track was going. it has an intriguing, spidery way of tricking you into thinking somthing was happening, but it leaves you short, hung to dry...
Side Effect: well. as much as i admire Yakir Ben tov's passion for music (his Cover version for dancing with kadafi is quite the little kicker), his useage of bassline games and thin, flat melodies are tiresome. not a good track when you come and compare it to the rest of the comp. sorry, me not like this one.
Alo Malo and Vortex - this IS the Vortex! a distorted Vortex with a reality grasp to it. a punch in your nose, leave you bleeding and begging for more kinda tune. Loved the guitars!
The Second Misted Muppet is a tad less sophisticated than the previous one. a straight forward tune, not too many games, just a down right beat.
Ganymed's a questionable track. it has Overall good sound and production values are significent, but it goes no where. the proggression is too slow, and it doesnt reach the proper punch line, the effect has not been accomplished.
EDL's tune, well, im biased. but i will say this: this is truely a work of art. stomp those dancing shoes out of the clothset. their in for a pounding.
The Final Ki-ay is an exquisit finishing touch, a true ambeint gem. to be completley honest, i havent even noticed when it started and finished, and only after looking at the time on the sleeve, i was amazed. this is one of the most engulfing pieces of music i heard, i didnt even notice how long it was!

Over all, good work, trancelucent people. excellent production, Original Concept, very well executed. keep it up!           "We Do Not Allways See Things As They Are. We See Things As We Are" -Ancient Chinese Proverb

Well finally i got my original copy (Thank Chai Chai) and i can say what i honestly thought about this comp'...
well 4 starters it is original, a comp' that tells a story is very unique. There r some highlights on this comp' like Perplex's track, Molecular's track and misted muppets - Human Beings....
other then that i have 2 say that much of the tracks r very e-mature, they r well produced but they simply sound like "Fruity games", i mean, if u really wanna get 2 my point u can listen 2 Gidi's Voojoo Rituals that was out i think 2 years ago... the production sounds the same and so is the music... this music fits perfectly the time when Voojoo Rituals and UFS2 were out... i am not very impressed by this Comp' but i cant say its bad either, cause i did simle a couple of times while listeneing 2 it but still, there r some tracks there that simply doesnt fit the high standarts that other labels call!
Anyways, as a 1st comp' ever 2 come out of Trancelusent this isnt so bad, and it has its moments and i'd defenitly say that any1 can find a track on this comp' that he could connect 2, but other than that, i was a bit dissapointed....

Firstly, itís nice to see a young label with mostly new artists.
Secondly, Empty Hand is a real cd (over 70 minutes and a global concept that gives coherence to the tracklisting).

About the the music in itself :

Perplex delivers a insistent, bewitched tune with changing tones . I was surprised to hear in this track some samples from The 0rb Ė Little Fluffy Clouds and so it reminds me how good was this old stuff and by the way some aliking between this one and some Perplex Ďs harmonies & tones.

I think that Molecular got a real good idea with the use of American dream sample but it seems that they doesnít succeed to build a real track around it. Waking Up lacks of of something in his construction as a matter of fact it results thatís the weakest production of the compilation for me.

Goju ,since its first seconds appears to be an energic stuff. After some moment and when i was beginning to think it was getting annoying and the end of the track would be probably soon, The Misted Muppet catch my ears into a final musical take off-burst and reveals the real nature of Goju.

Side Effect gives the emotionnal touch to the compilation, punchy & cosmic melodic psytrance .Without any doubt the kind of music that makes people happy,smily and dancing even if theyíre tired.

Distorted Reality, is rocking with its electric guitar riffs and a bassline which could be an Absolumís one.
Sounds different but contributes to avoid a too linear or homogeneous tracklisting. More it permits to launch in good conditions next track.

The most psychedelist production is here , this second Misted Puppet better than the first illuminates by his quality Empty Hand.

Maze with Ganymed,well if i had to describe this track i would tell people itís like a bouncing & speaking psychedelic robot. A funny track.

The most Progressive track comes with Evil Drug Lords, and itís also the longest tittle for a track iíve never seen :
The more things change the more they stay the same.
Indeed, it sounds quite melodic for progressive and thereís a special tense atmosphere that confers it a special hypnotic dimension. At first, was thinking it wasnít my cup of tea, finally considers it as an honest track.

Maze ends Empty Hand with a beautifull jewel under the form of a long asian chill-out morning voyage.

To sump up :

Favorites tracks by order : 7,10,5.
Other good ones by order : 6,2,4,8
Weakest track :3.

Mark : 8,5/10
