2 stars The "Complete Trip" is front-loaded exercise in the ambience and psychedelic which will-- without exception-- only appeal to die-hard fans or those coming from the minimalist sphere of psychedelic which is almost outside this site's area of expertise.

"Phase 1" is amazing, its introduction, samples, building/layered atmospheres and soaring melody are a instantly enjoyable... then it's over, and the record never quite gets its second wind. Successive Phases are empty, airy affairs whose chief goal seems to be delivering the ethics of LSD via various sampled voices, with nary a memorable musical moment to be found.

I do, however, appreciate the message contained herein, which is very ambivalent. There is no pro or con message to be found, although I think the one voice who asks, "Is this trip really necessary?" gets to the heart of the debate.

For serious fans only.
