    Iboga record showing once again why (according to my ears) why they are the best record label. 2 releases in 2 weeks. oh and that doesn't include Frogacult. Whilst Set 3 was good i didn't find it amazing. then along comes Playground and suddenly Iboga can do no wrong once again. I haven't eard Frogacult album yet so can't comment but for me i found some of the tracks on Set 3 a little disappointing. For a start the 1st track had come off the original Beat Bizarre album released in 2001. Granted it is a real gem of a trak but it's a bit lazy(?) to be included on a 2004 compilation. but anyways, i'm not talking about Set 3.

    Playground really can do no wrong, some of the best tracks i have heard in so long are included on this CD. there are offerings from FREq and Antix who i feel are some of the best producers in the psytrance genre.

    i won't do a track by track review because firstly i am too lazy and secondly because my words won't do most of them justice. All i can say is the Phony Orphants track bassline is out of this world!!! Probably my favourite track on the incredibly good compilation.

    Another reason i love this cd so much is because of the melodies in most of the tracks. it's such a nice change to get away from the housey side of things which has 'plagued' 2004. there have been some excellent releases but let's face it, it's house!!

    i can't reccomend this cd highly enough, go take a listen, it's awesome. no matter what style of psy you prefer, i'm sure this will appeal. progressive full on whatever. it's psytrance and it's fucking good!!!!!!!

    hmmm yes - I agree with Drat on Set 3 - played it and thought it was pretty crap really ...... alot of stuff from the back cat there me thinks. Track 7 is a killer though !!

    Fraogacult is fucking sublime !! buy it buy it buy it buy it buy it buy it buy it buy it

    Didnt know about the other comp so I will have to go get it !! Oh - and prooved 2 on Plastic Park is really nice !!! Another one worthy of the progressive posse for sure !!

    Yup - wicked album !! One of the best proggy comps of 2004.

    They were obviously saving the best till last.
