Here, the Shamen (thankfully) tire of churning out the chart-topping formula that spawned most of the Bossdrum album, and give us a rare treat of some 'proper songs' with electronic instruments (just like the good old days of Depeche and Erasure)!
Us synth fans are not usually given the opportunity to hear synths creating REAL songs with REAL lyrics and REAL meaning.... There is so much faceless (and just plain BAD) electronic music out there that this comes as a breath of fresh air. It should not be dismissed just because it is not the usual Shamen sound that we are used to hearing - give it a chance and you will discover one of the best synth albums ever :)
The weakest tracks are the ones that were remixed by the Beatmasters and released as singles, in an attempt to extend the Bossdrum success. The Beatmasters managed to CRUCIFY the songs Destination Eschaton, MK2a and Heal for the single releases, but thankfully the original Shamen-produced versions are left 'entact' here, or added as bonus tracks for your listening pleasure :)
This is a great Shamen album - right up there with Entact...
Nah, screw it - it's even better!
Deep, meaningful, intelligent electronica - get it and be whisked away to another space and time!

It is hard hearing this and saying you absolutely like this . There are tracks here that sound a little beyond me . Don't get me wrong I love The Shamen but this album has always been a struggle for me . Later albums such as Hempton Manor or UV are much more accessible but this continues to be a struggle no matter how much I've played it . Sometimes some of it turns out to be good sometimes the album falls flat . In the end it just still remains the most difficult of The Shamen albums to get into

Definitely a cut above yer average thinking-man's wallpaper music, The Shamen manage to create enough interest and diversity in this synth album to ward off sleep - which is more than can be said of much similar output of the era.
Ideal for gardening, washing-up etc. and can induce semi-euphoria if accompanied by a couple of large brandys.

Axis Mutatis alters consciousness 22 Oct 2005
By C. Walton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Its very strange but the words written by the previous reviewer could have been my own - they perfectly explain how I have always felt about this album.

I started listening to The Shamen shortly after the release of "Entact" and while I feel that all of their albums are jems within the musical landscape Axis Mutatis is in my mind their most powerful and complete musical expression.

Axis Mutatis takes me to mental places that I can't really describe in words. If I tried to describe them I would probably use words like powerful, magical, transcendental, organic, timeless, and mystical. But that's just the thing, one can't really describe such experiences with words - deep mental spaces like the ones opened up by this music seem to lie outside of time, space, and codified language and must be experienced directly.

Those of you with open minds please find this album and listen to it without preconception. I think you will like what you find.

Long Live The Dead King 30 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With what appears to be the demise of what I believe to one of the most important musical markers for our civilization... one of the most under rated and under played artistic combos our world has ever seen... They leave a legacy of amazing recordings to be studied and enjoyed for generations. I strongly recommend the music of the Shamen for its enlightening qualities and entrancing rythms. Every album is like a small vacation from the present.

The Shaman's Logos 9 Mar 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is that invisible line between what can be understood and what sounds like neural noise. The level of consciousness determines that. This I believe, is a new musical codice, a new interface to the divine.

It's not En-tact, but it's not bad. 20 Sep 1998
By Stochastic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Shamen perhaps doomed themselves with the initial success of En-tact and "Move Any Mountain." Axis Mutatis has its own flavor, though...where En-tact was uplifting and Boss Drum was quirky, Axis Mutatis is content. "MK2A" is an unforgettable track, "Destination Eschaton" and other tracks are pretty standard Shamen fare, along with the usual sampling of experimental stuff. If you're a Shamen fan, it's worth getting; if not...En-tact is probably worth a look first.

The best Shamen Album 19 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album has the ability to transform your consciousness if you the ability to hear it for what it is. It's not going to open up to you on the level of most of their other work. It's deeply mysterious, mathematicall organic, gaiian, timeless, and far-reaching. I can't listen to this album without being reminded of deep connections between the seen and unseen world, time and space. Life in this moment.
