CD Reviews

Wicked trance from moontribes very own DJ Brian
trance-a-holik | wash DC | 10/10/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The record begins with a nice steady beat that soon becomes the backbone to the entire first track. Pounding away until it gets into to your head, slowly mimicking your heart beat. Once this is established the trance really begins to take off. Surreal sounds and effects continue in this superb mix that grows harder and louder in every track only to reach a peak that explodes beautifully giving you that great feeling of reaching the state of ecstasy. Track 4 is the best example. Great music to chill out to but this is best played extremely loud. The only bad thing about this album is that when it ends, you only want more. You cannot go wrong with this cd, or any of the 3 Hardesertrance albums. Dj Brian is a trance god."
The first hard trance album I owned
J. Moran | Wayne, NJ USA | 06/20/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was the first hard trance album I ever owned, and it got me hooked on this awesome style of music. The album just gets going without any kind of build-up, and keeps going for a solid 74 minutes. By far the best tracks are "India - E. Razor" (track 6) and "Red - Sandra Collins" (track 7).If you want to get a great intro to hard trance, this is it!"
Not bad for Techno mixed in the 20th century
Dr. Lee D. Carlson | Baltimore, Maryland USA | 07/11/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"DJ Brian delivers one of his very best mixes in this compilation, the sole purpose of which of course is to increase the kinetic energy of the listener. All of Techno/Trance music has this characteristic, and one cannot resist its melodic commandments to move.
The tracks: 1. "Emotions": Formidable in its percussion and wastes no time in beckoning the listener to dance. Its periods of rest are serene and thoughtful, definitely Techno-typical. 2. "Ring of Fire": The musical themes are chaotic and restless, trying to find a place. They finally do, and the outcome is pure delight. 3. "Earth's Last Defense": The transition from Track 2 is clever, and some background vocals are struggling for domination, never quite doing so though. An eerie background begins about midway through, setting the stage for Track 4. 4. "Train of Thought": Gradually building, it teases the listener, and never quite gives in to the listeners demand for release. 5. "Be Yourself": The antagonism between dancer and DJ constructed in Track 4 is continued here. The themes are tangled and moody, knocking the dancer off balance. 6. "India": The title is accurate with synthetic sitar overtones, which inducing a swaying. It delivers its kinetic promises later though, most assuredly. 7. "Red": Definitely gives the dancer the much needed layer of sweat. 8. "One Fine Day": Heavy base tones in its beginning with slight echoes of vocals. Jittery at its ending. 9. "Air": Picks up what Track 8 left unfinished. The build-up is prolonged but its eventuality satisfying. 10. "Psychout": Yes, it does push the listener to the edge, the vocals are repetitive but playful. 11. "Let It Go": Irritating sometimes in its monotony of background themes, it eventually gives respite. 12. "Rollercoaster": Brimming over with enthusiasm, the vocals encourage listening and feeling, for these are synonyms."
