Double Dragon - Continuum.
IMHO it is one of the top3 most influential psychedelic progressive albums ever. High up there with KoxBox's Great Unknown and Atmos' Headcleaner. What's on menu?
Intricate sound games and dozens of layers that just grab your ears and mind. Most of the cd is pretty slow which proves that you don't have to push the BPM to 145 and upper to serve proper psychedelic experience. Shame though that todays progressive producers are to busy copiying sounds and textures from House and Techno.           Everyone in the world is doing something without me

Double Dragon - Continuum is fuckin insane music. great album.

Psychonaut - Vol. 1. now this is great psychedelic progressive in the vein of X-Dream-Radio only not as dark.

Onnomon - No Monno
Very psychedelic, and half the album teeters on the progressive edge. similar to Double Dragon in some ways, though more groovy, less tweaky.

A few posts back, I mentioned the 'Crunchy Moles' (from 'The Great Unknown') remix EP by Koxbox but i was a bit vague - so if anyone is interested, here are the details -

KOXBOX - A MAJOR PROBLEM IN AUSTRALIA EP 2000 (LIQUID AUDIO SOUNDZ)

1) A Major Problem In Australia (Short Version)
2) A Major Problem In Australia (Massimo Vivona Remix)
3) A Major Problem In Australia (Miro Remix)
4) A Major Problem In Australia (Saafi Brothers Remix)
5) A Major Problem In Australia (Logic Bomb Remix)
6) 6 Cells (The Pixeldodgers Remix)
7) A Major Problem In Australia (Extended Version)

Think my favourite was the Massimo Vivona remix - or was it the Miro remix - lol i forget now but they are all great tracks! It's well worth hunting down.

'This sound is brought to you by the Australasian film and video securities office - please help us stop it. This is a major problem in Australia'           Am i the only one who believes in solipsism?

OVER THE SLIPSTREAM... by PULS 2005 (MENTAL ARTS)

Another good proggy album with a funky flavour. Kicks off with a couple of up-tempo tracks but then settles into a more progressive/prog-on groove. Some very nice tracks and good driving beats throughout. Definitely recommended. Favourites are 3, 5 and 9.

andromeda the remixes
Anders Nilsson + arara made excellant work
unique sound old school melodies
great basslines
also some new soul surfer tracks + gaudium track rmx (which it isn't in the disc)
are amazing ,anders rocks !!!

I also like the debut album of funky dragon - algol I really liked their style but they have to look for some spicy details which will make them perfect

Agree with you about the Andromeda Remixes album - some really good tracks! One of the best remix albums i've heard in a long time.           Am i the only one who believes in solipsism?

THE IMMACULATE PERCEPTION by NYSTAGMUS 2005 (SUNDANCE RECORDS)

Very impressive debut album from Matte Gillard. Think Vibe Tribe meets Benza meets Infected Mushroom (circa 2000) and sprinkle with some seriously odd, trippy interludes and you'll have a rough idea of what to expect from this one. One of the best tracks on the album, Tommy is Dead reminds me a lot of Vibe Tribes Albert Balbert.

Often very dark (in the true sense of the word) and twisted but generally remaining very melodic and incredibly psychedelic.

A intriguing, sometimes even unsettling but genuinely striking album!

AMANITA MUSCARIA by SOMA 2005 (MASTER PRODUCTION)

A fine product of experience and talent and a good solid 'mellon' to boot!

You know the score... if you don't like this kinda stuff then it probably wont change your mind... but if you do, there is a lot here to like. Consistent throughout with plenty of good (sometimes very good) melodic full-on tracks and imo far less cheesy than most too!

Well done to all involved!           Am i the only one who believes in solipsism?

Panick - Rocket Pocket.
One of the few really good full-on albums that were released in Israel in the last 3 years.
Total mindfuck. Rich soundscapes and mega fat bassline.
Hope the follow up will not disappoint.           Everyone in the world is doing something without me

A great musical journey from the begining to the end!! Very trippy and mystical.

The voice in 'Tommy is Dead' sounds almost like the one in 'People are animals' by Talpa
