If Simon did make a new Hallucinogen, it may just save Psytrance, and hopefully kill off this Full-On bullshit.
SO uhm… what are you expecting?
What is being demanded here is just a brilliant (master) piece of work that sounds fully “Hallucinogen” and is at the same time something completely new (which face it, the old albums aren’t), groundbreaking and still psy/goa (or better yet: the next step!)?
Seen as expectations are such I don’t wonder why it was never released/made before: this kind of pressure can only be fought with large amounts of ganja and lotsa chillin’.
I doubt after this time any album, how brilliant it may be, is going to satisfy the expectations built up by the looks of it… though hey… could do an “In Rock” album like the “In Dub” one, annnnnd then an “In Orchestra” and an “In Breaks” and an “In Club” and an “In Dancehall” and an “In Ambient” and an “In das Slager Festival” and an “In…
If he did write a third album, I wouldn’t fully expect it to be Goa. I just think that since he wrote it so long ago, maybe his musical tastes have changed and his style as well. I mean, two years ago, I myself was convinced that I wanted to write Hardcore Techno, Like Angerfist or Neophyte. Now I’m not sure what I’m doing, but I like it more. Maybe Simon’s the same way.
Plus, I seriously doubt that Simon would contribute to this whole Full-On fad, or whatever the newest crappy Psytrance sub-genre is being factory produced (just yesterday, I heard of albums being “Forest” or “Twilight” Psytrance. WTF?).
Kind of like how Prometheus makes Psytrance, yet does it in a completely original way; I think that Simon can do that, too, and, hopefully, other artists will get inspired by that and make better music. This scene needs to be revamped.
My point is, he redefined Goa and practically started Psybient; why not try Psytrance, and give it a breath of fresh air?
