After a promising 12", Golan Avramov is out with an album. It's a nice album, but it has its ups and downs.
I Feel Something is a nice opener- mysterious atmospheric melodic track with a lot of little sound games. Wild Ride (T2) that follows is not very wild, and actually bored me. Psychoparadise is a good one, powerful right from the start, pounding rough and hard, melodies flying on the background but never really taking control. Carpets of sounds surrounding you all the time. It kinda lacks an ending, but it's a good in-between track. House of Trance (T4) is another favorite entering strong with a lot of presence. A relentless bass and kick runs all along the track with a lot of atmospheric sound games telling a lot of interesting stories. Static (T5) is just too static and too long, though it helps to appreciate what comes next. Visual Aspect, which opened the Bside of the 12", is much more bouncy and cheerful in a way, though still dark and twisted overall. A powerful crunch bass drives you full of energy all along the track, going through dark spooky realms- jumpy bouncy jumpy bouncy! Too Much (T7) is the most full on track in here, starts scratchy and bouncy and rising slowly into exploding realms. What Is It? (T8) is a cute hectic piece of music, but not more than that. Ending the album is X-L, a hypnotic track that progresses and builds step by step, till it takes you out calmly.
All and all I'm not overwhelmed. There's nothing new here, but it's still a good psychedelic Goa trance album, which shows promise for the future. It seems a guiding hand is missing- some tracks could have been left out, and I wonder why the strongest Brain Bubbles track, Scramble Heads, was left for the vinyl EP only.
