well, hte first one is way better, way special, and way more attractive
either ways, this album is also a great one, the eatstatic and talamasca is my favorite.
go tip!           I want you to understand that this man at the wheel is my attorney. He's not just some dingbat I found on the strip, man. He's a foreigner. I think he's probably Samoan. But that doesn't matter, though, does it? Are you prejudiced?

I can't stand the Talamasca one. First four tracks are very good and then it goes downhill. That has to be the worst Shpongle track ever.

Maybe I'm missing something, I need to give it one more listen.           Both teams played hard

This wasn't a good experience the first few times I heard it, but it has certainly grown on me.

My favorites are Eat Static, Shpongle and Talamasca (whom I usually don't like ... at all), and the worst track is by far the one with Alien Project.

Pretty weak to hear this track, when you know it's been released weeks before on the Electronic High 3 compilation under another name ... "L.S.D."           DJ pr0fane (Iboga Records) | Multiphase

OK, some of you guys might already expect my taste, but for me, the high point of the album were those magical 6 minutes of 4/4 beat in the Shpongle track... Totally mindblowing stuff with top-notch soundwork, great harmonic work and that ohhh so psychedelic feeling behind it. Eat Static also show that they understand psychedelia like few others in the trance world, building their track like a story, while Cyberbabas give a more raw emotional point of view (I don't know why you guys think it's boring, I think it's great).

I told myself "don't think about who's making the track, you'll enjoy it. Loads of people say it's good". And I tried. I really did. I listened to it once, twice, three times. Each time I really WANTED to enjoy it. I do NOT like the Astrix track, I really don't know what all the fuss is about.

The Alien Project and Talamasca tracks were pretty nice, but too concentrated on being full-on and not enough on the concept of the album. As someone who doesn't really like full-on, I can say that most people here don't like the Alien Project track because they heard it before, not because it's so terrible. The 1200 mics track was a pleasant surprise as I usually don't like music by this act (sorry Raja, but in this case, you too), giving a good track.

All in all, this is a very good album, with 3 great tracks, a good track, 2 nice tracks and one I didn't like. Definately above average here. By quite a bit.           http://www.myspace.com/Hooloovoo222

I just figured what Shpongle did here, they just outranked Ozric Tentacles in their own style, the student (fans) outdid the masters..... great work by Simon P here great guitar, he has gotten alot better on it.... and great Ozricish concept.           "On the other hand, you have different fingers."

In general it is a nice cd without something very very special until the last two tracks... The last two "revelations" by 1200 mics and Shpongle are great... Perfect tracks with great atmosphere... I really like them...
8/10
Shpongle did it again...           In This World Have Your Own Bpm...

Every track has its unique style.
This is one of the most innovative and highest production cd's i have ever heard and i am really glad that it is as good as the first part of the series.
My personal favorite is the Cyberbabas track and i really wish that these 2 guys will release an album on TIP World in the future,i also loved the Shpongle track and really enjoyed the 1200 Mics.
If all cd's were like this one then i would spend all of my money on buying music every day.
If you are a dj then buy immediately your original copy.

9/10

Cant wait for next years part.

re-listened to this release, and found a lost gem in the Shpongle track. Totally forgot about that little piece of magic
