Why is it that people think it's so evil? What is it about it that is scares people so deeply? Even ... and if one is ... because they are afraid that there's more to reality than they have confronted. That there are doors that they're afraid to go in and they don't want us to go in there either because, if we go in, we might learn something that they don't know.

It's been only 5 months that i discovered Posford's Psytrance (I only listened to Shpongle and Younger brother before)... and am like waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.This man is just phenomenal. I tried to listen to more psytrance artists but i couldn't find the same impressions. He's expressing his soul into music... First i listened to The Lone Deranger... i loved it, but when i heard TWISTED, i was entering a world of magical harmony.Now I only listen to this album all day long.

It's quite a task to decipher this immortal album into mere words, but I feel obliged as plus twenty years later this album still gives me the shivers and amazes me with its technical superiority. This album was written I believe mostly in 1995, but some of it even dates back to 1994. The first Hallucinogen release ever, the LSD/Alpha Centauri 12" on Dragonfly Records, is from April 1994. So to just sum things up - the whole album was written in roughly a two-year period. Musically speaking this album is nearly flawless in my ears. Hallucinogen has an uncanny talent in using weird yet strangely charming synth sounds and effects and manipulating them thru effect units like a mad scientist. The result? It may sound funny but the guy is still touring around the world playing these exact tracks! Okay, there's usually the combo-package with the latest Shpongle but still... this album carries such a staggering level to detail and brilliant songwriting that it still works on the dancefloor and gives you a great trip - even without stimulants. I love the almost "punk rock" attitude Hallucinogen has on this album. It's raw, powerful, twisted (as the title would suggest...) and mysterious all at the same time. 'Twisted' feels like a perfect example of that 1994/1995 musical period when Goa trance was taking its form and was free of any pre-defined concepts how psychedelic music ought to sound. At the same time its maturity was years ahead of the game and still continues to inspire countless of artists - yours truly as an example. I truly believe 'Twisted' is the magnum opus of Hallucinogen. Now, I do think also 'TLD' is a great album, it might excel this album in its technicality, but it lacks the certain rawness and craziness that make 'Twisted' one of the standout releases in all 90s electronic music.
Flash_back
Fair enough, pre-versions were there in '93 - but that's just being nit-picky as I was merely talking of the actual material (=versions) found on this album. Or is there some info that one of the tracks on this album actually dates back to 93? I think Simon Posford himself told the first track he composed as Hallucinogen was 'Solstice' (VA - Retrodelica) and the year was 1994. Having listened to the old Purple Om tracks and add to that, let's say Gumbo's 'Quickening', is enough of evidence to tell he hadn't quite invented that "hallucinogenic" sound by that year yet.
Endieyab
Just for the record, it took a bit longer to make the album, and some tracks (pre versions of the final released ones) were already in circulation in 93, others are remakes of his earlier Purple Om project, like Solstice, most tracks from that period were only traded on Dat, or like the LSD 93 version finally released on one of Dat Records Compilations.

I think it's about time for a repress of this amazing masterpiece!

Simon Posford anal penetrates Martin Freeland with his debut album Twisted, considered by many as the quitessential album that defined a new era. Well, to me its good but not good enough to be enlisted into my personal favs since all tracks other than LSD lack creativity to my humble ears, artistically its successor The Lone Deranger surpasses Twisted in every respect, being both hypnotic and melodic at the same time.
Dorilune
Yeah, its influence can be clearly seen in Simon's later works.
The_NiGGa
Gosh I think Solstice is a real cracker, both this version and the one from In Dub.
OTANO
I first ordered this album from the UK to the US back in around 1996. I consider this to be THE landmark psytrance album everyone interested in the genre must listen to start to finish. It's pounding and relentless in the audio trip it takes you on from start to finish. There is a "live" version of LSD which is my favorite psytrance track of all time but the album version still gives me chills as well. You simply must listen to this album along with some of the Rhino Records compilations from the mid-90s to really understand psytrance and what it's about.

Twentieth anniversary of its first release next year and it still stands up to the most intense scrutiny. What a lot of people fail to appreciate is that no one had done anything quite like this before. When Simon Postford recorded Twisted he set the standard by which all that followed would be judged, it is without doubt a work of true genius. He created synth noises previously unheard and did things with established sounds that no one had ever imagined. The bass lines, the drum patterns, the rhythm section, are crafted with consummate mastery. The way he uses voice samples was something new and very individual too, just listen to the way he uses them on Shamanix and you'll understand what I mean. The constantly changing pace and the whole oscilitaing, pulsating, rhythmic musical ecstacy is breath taking. It has its darker moments, few and far between, but the vast majority is blissful euphoria, the balance, the weight given to the lighter and darker passages seems carefully considered and has been achieved with great skill. There is no other album that gets my heart racing, my hair literally standing on end like this one, there isn't a weak track on it. When my pal Danny brought this album round to my house when it was first released and I listened to it for the first time I knew I was hearing something very special. It makes a lot of what is produced today sound, well, boring actually. Although the sounds are very crisp and polished now there are no true inovators in my opinion, the music of today is largely formulaic and comprised from modern variations of an old theme, a theme born from the mind of Simon Postford twenty years ago, Simon, you're a hard act to follow and have left an indelible mark on electronic music!

Great post, this was truly in a league of its own and even before this all of Simon's remixes on various other discs like a few singles from Killing Joke were always highlights. Far ahead of his time.

Rainbowbridge Twentieth anniversary of its first release next year Will this also be re-released on vinyl?

shamanix is such a masterpiece, the way he evades cheesiness on such a dreamy tune is unbelievable.
Leyl
this is by far one of the best albums to have. its about 18ys old and still every time when you listen to it will feel just as good as the first time and lets face it how many cds out there like that may be very few,, i have it on cd all this years and some how i was so lucky one day i walked to a shop which happened he has it on vinyle and that was my first ever, till today i have it and it feel so good to look at it LOL
Gna
there is not enough words for discribe this experience,listen this album is a amazing adventure! simon created a magnificent masterpiece, mixing space sounds with very strong melodies and the sound that defined Goa trance.this is a record cant be missed in any collection,with this tunes posfford demostrate why he is the master of goa-psy sound!!
Andromathris
This is by far the cream of the crop when it comes to Goa trance every producer of the genre must look at this release with a certain amount of "Awe and Respect !! Every track is crafted and shaped to perfection its honey to the ears a magical journey through the best Goa the world has heard.The intro to LSD captures the ambivalence surrounding "Hallucinogenic's".The track oscillates up and down and turns full bliss midway through, probably his master piece not forgetting "Shamanix" To say these two tracks our his greatest is sacrilege to the other 6 mind blowing tracks on the album there all brilliant and unique even by todays standards if it was released tomorrow it would still be a classic and a great introduction to new people who don't no the genre. This album was my entry point. I cant help comparing most other Goa by this album but the truth is you don't get any better than "Hallucinogens Twisted". I would recommend to all lovers of electronic music.

Twisted is the first absolutely awensome album of Hallucinogen published in 1995. Great melodies and rhythm with a lot of interesting sounds and efects. All the tracks are truly incredible. Mix together into nice harmony. This album has already 13 years but is still on good sound level. Simon Posford is a genious musician and sound engineer who created in this case a masterpiece of electronic music. You can not found there any bad track. All of them makes our minds very twisted and visual so we are able to embark on deep music journey. Twisted is a mile stone in psychedelic music. This is one of the most importand relased in 20th century for all goa's freaks. I'm still impressed of this record.

The Emperor's old clothes ...? There seems to be general consensus throughout the psytrance community that this is THE quintessential psytrance album. Only briefly acquainted with psytrance in 1995, I didn't get onboard the Twisted waggon back then, however, and didn't like this album when introduced to me in 2000. So, scandalize and ridicule me if you must, I have only gotten to know this album now. But possibly ruining all review credibility what is Twisted doing to fresh ears 10 years after its release? As with many "dated" releases one has to appreciate the time of making. Even if the style here still comes across as highly psychedelic, it doesn't catch me off guard. At least not at first hand. Time has had its effect. Besides, Posford is loaded with ideas and the tracks never sticks to one theme or mood for a longer time, making it challenging instantly to trip on. But then when you give into it and convince yourself this is majestic, you start to fathom how breathtakingly impressive this may come across at its best. I heard someone refer to this as your brain on acid. That could be true. You certainly realise what an enormous impact this sound has had on psy music in general, and how Posford's influence is traceable to this day. So is all the hype justified? Well, I've heard quite a few trance album since this was released, but seldom an album that turnes me on and off this much, or an album with this much to offer. In 1995 this must have been a bomb! My personal verdict 6 years ago, however, still pretty much stands. This is psychedelic to the extent you have to go ALL in to get it, and mostly I like just a little part of brain to remain close to status quo. Those looking for psychedelic mayheem madness should still have a field day here though.

Not every track on this album holds my attention like 'LSD', but still all these years on, the album still feels fresh and the level of sound manipulation years ahead of anything else I was listening to at this time.I have the following album, and later work, but this is the one that does it for me.

What does one say about one of THE most important and well loved albums of the genre? Twisted is the album that really defined psy-trance. LSD changed the face of the psy-music world and its never been the same since. Every track is excellent and the album works as a seemless sonic journey. From the mood setting LSD to the crazy full-on climax of Fluoro Neuro Sponge, to the gentle landing of Sosltice, it is one of the genre's most perfect journeys, topped perhaps only by Simon Posford's follow up effort, The Lone Deranger. Owners of the Twisted records rerelease should be sure to keep playing after Solstice to hear the bonus ambient version of another Hallucinogen great, Angelic Particals. An absolute MUST OWN
