- Twisted

hallucinogen-twisted

Twisted sent seismic shockwaves throughout the scene when it was released on Dragonfly Records, and its many-layered lysergic soundscapes continue to dazzle and bewilder listeners today. Although Simon Posford’s timeless debut album is renowned for being one of the darker examples of Goa trance circa 1995 there are many moments of sheer unadulterated euphoria, often in the midst of tracks otherwise simmering with sinister energy. My only criticism is that the production value sometimes sounds a little thin, but that’s understandable given how old it is. Despite these minor misgivings there’s no question this legendary album is an all-time classic, and all trance fans should be intimately familiar with its surprising twists and turns.
