Iboga has been going through some changes in the last two years, touching new musical directions, also in a bit of a confused way. If this compilation is to show the new Iboga way, then I pretty much like it. Still your Scando-progressive sound, with clubby touches, but with enough feel and psychedelia to keep it interesting.
It start with a new Jaia track- it's nice, interesting, and even groovy, but hasn't got the deep emotional feel I'm used to from Jaia (I miss it). Frogacult continue much more of what for me is the right direction. Lucky Strike is progressive in feel, yet caressing and beautiful. Oryx next (T3) with a very psychedelic and drippy tune- excellent! Then it's Filur with Underrated (T5), the best track here really, so much feel and powerful atmosphere, and much more psytrance- I like the new Filur way. This track is something else, and it gets so much better every time I listen to it. It's been a while since I said that, but, here goes... this one's worth the compilation all by itself. Feels good to say that. With Double Dragon things start to get clubbier, but still the kind of clubby music that keeps it interesting for the brain.Cex (T6) has nice tight grooves that pull well and together with the nice feel carry the slow evolving patient build very well. Didn't get the sample though. Emok, care to explain? True to nature start taking us on the way out with Pulsar (T7)- beautiful spooky melody with tons of feel. Excellent pre-dawn track. Ending the CD is another beautiful caressing progressing track- the name of both the artist and the track say it all perfectly. Nothing to add.
