4 stars Well, this is Trance!

Long gone Pete Namlook and the ever going Bill Laswell's fifth association in 2002 under the "PSYCHONAVIGATION" name project, starts up deliberately with a top of the line electronic, 7+- minutes, shake your booty track which is just totally night club worthy, "The Catalyst".

"Cryosleep" a 4 parts, 32+- minutes, composition goes into deep bottom dream-trance like tendencies with extremely inducing underwater like environments, adorned all way through with a highly elegant catalogue of programmed sounds which are as ominous as hypnotic all counterpointed by Bill Laswell's subtle, intense, "full throttle" electronic bass, which the same as Namlooks lines, are tainted towards the darkest tones of the sonic rainbow. To be honest, I think most prog-heads will feel ashamed to get into these perimeters. I myself a self declared "I do not give f%^k", am enjoying it like electronic dance floor heaven!

"Life Eternal" the 11 minutes closing track, starts by detourig completely from the previous dance/dream/trance spirit into an eerie, slow paced, wide open and transparent ambiental composition wich eventually grows into a kind of electronic/native dance prayer.

I could hardly think that such an extremely electronic/dance/trance in style approach will appeal to proggers as such, but then again?

****4 PA stars.
