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.
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.

I liked the look and description of this release, enough to purchase it without any prior knowledge of the artist.
