2 stars Into the mid 2000's, the once fantastic Harald Grosskopf releases a subpar trance album with strong traces of new age music.

Grosskopf did well transitioning from the '70s into the '80s, but his transition into the modern sounds of the new millennium sound very out of touch. The sound of the synths on Yeti Society are very thin and give off a somewhat smokey psychedelic vibe similar to what you'd expect from the more recent albums by Ozric Tentacles mixed with the cheesy new age drifting sounds of Enigma. For Grosskopf, this new sound is very depressing considering his past achievements.

No individual track on Yeti Society stands out on its own; each track is essentially the same dance-inspired out of touch new age trance with no elements that make any track seem significant in any way.

This album would maybe be a good soundtrack for a yoga or road biking session, but as an actual musical experience by itself it is very disappointing and not at all as compositionally excellent as Grosskopf's earlier work.
