4.0 out of 5 stars Blissed out and ambient 17 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
Marketted as trance, this is actually more at the ambient end of things. I first picked this up in 1995 - drawn to the wonderful single "Loving You More" but was hooked instantly. Sure, some of the whale sounds and sounds of crashing waves are a little clichéd but this has more than enough for any fan of relaxed, chilled out music. "Divinity" is so atmospheric that I can almost feel the warm sun on my back everytime I hear it. Do yourself a favour, though, and checkout the import version. For a little bit more money you get the original CD interspersed with extra tracks and remixes - and for a change these actually add to the CD rather than pad it out (especially "Blue Skies" which features Tori Amos on guest vocals).

Brian Transeau (BT) is a classically trained musician so we are truly blessed that he has concentrated his composing efforts on all things house. Ima is one of those rare albums that never seems to depreciate with repeated listenings. One of the keys to the success of the album is the variety, not only from track to track but even within the songs themselves. BT puts layer upon layer of drumbeats, guitars, piano and all manner of electronic textures which linger long in the mind.
Nocturnal Transmission sets the tone for the album, beginning with an almost ethereal intro but soon bringing in more urgent beats and a tune of seemingly neverending complexity. As you would expect from any half-decent trance track, the build-ups are immaculate and the whole nine minutes flashes past. Quark and Tripping the Light Fantastic are both rampant floorfillers, soundscapes of enormous proportion but only really serve as an appetizer for Sasha's Voyage of Ima, a 42-minute epic which mixes the singles Embracing the Future, Deeper Sunshine and Loving You More with consummate ease. It's almost as if the songs were written to be blended together so seamlessly. Again, the mixture of the hardest beats, the swaying melodies and the precision pacing makes listening an unforgettable experience.
The album finishes with Divinity, a piano-led anthem which hits all the right buttons both with its beauty and its explosiveness.
His albums since, ESCM and Movement in Still Life, are far better than most "intelligent house" available, but nothing matches the sheer brilliance of Ima. Buy it or miss out.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album changed my life (nearly) 27 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was a student when this album appeared and bought it pretty much straight away, as I did back in those days, due to a healthy interest in clubs at the time. Many others purchased around the time, (Robert Miles to name but one), have seldom graced my CD player since those days, but BT just gets better.
I have his subsequent releases, which are all supurb, but this album holds that special something, the ability to make your spine tingle, be it with the outright euphoria of Divinity, or the subtle melodies of Tripping the Light Fantastic.
The Sasha mix is a handy way to catch up on BT's previous releases and is skillfully done, though I sometimes lose the thread if not really into it, at around the 30 minute mark! I find all the tracks have been favourites at one time or another, I always find something new in each song on this album, surely a sign of greatness. It's also good one for showing off/testing a hi-fi, I bought my last pair of speakers on the basis of hearing parts this album through them!
As an aside, apparently appaled by his imitators, BT rejected an entire follow-up album of similar material and moved on, which surely must be one of music's great losses.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very nice surprise 13 Aug 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I actually bought this album by mistake, having previously hated all trance house with a vengance. I thought I might as well listen to it anyway, and was, to my surprise, completely blown away. This is a truly beautiful album and obviously an early and original manifestation of a genre which has since decended into cliched cheesy rubbish. It is now an essential in my music collection
