A brief note:

Well, here it is. I hope that I'm not the only one here that needed a change of pants after reading the announcement for this monstrous double album! SynSUN are two gifted, talented musicians that clearly pour a lot of love, time and effort into their music. Sure, their production shares sounds and styles of other psytrance artists, but considering how insular this genre is nowadays, you have to expect this. So why do they stand out? Melodies, arrangements, structures, every aspect of their music screams of a greater depth and ability than many other trance artists (psy or otherwise). I would dare to say that these guys and Safi Connection (and perhaps Sattel Battle) are pretty much the only artists bringing any sort of creativity to, at least melodic, psy any more. (I'm not talking Goa here, we have Suntrip after all )

What of the album itself? Well, I'll be honest, I've barely heard it through once so far. But I can already tell you that it is an overwhelming journey, overflowing with great melodies, breakdowns, and sounds. And as much as I love the trance disc, the freestyle disc is possibly even better. Some slow trance tracks, downbeat tunes, chillout numbers, but not a whiff of generic Shpongle New Ageiness. And quite a bit of guitar. Yes, guitar! No cheesy power-chord riffage either, but lots of understated, sympathetic soloing on tunes like Laser Show, Sleep Now and Guitar Particle Illusions. If you have even the slightest love for the Ozric Tentacles, you need to hear this!

Perhaps I'll add some more to this over the next few weeks, but for now I'd urge EVERYONE on this forum to get this album. For a genre so steeped in copycats and mindless "sound effect" full-on artists, an album such as Unstoppable doesn't come along too often, and you'll be missing out if you don't try it.

Hmm I'll have to check it out then sometimes. I disagree on Safi Connection though. He might be busy with originality, but that only works when it's done well, and that's not the case with Safi Connection. Some of his latest songs sound plain stupid and even childish IMO. But then, tastes differ.           "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."
