Here is my review from the other Voyage 34: The Complete Trip:
This is great music, especially the first 2 phases. It is truly music that you can float away in, though the narrations are the one thing I could have done without. (Actually, I've grown to enjoy the narrations now.)
I concur with the other reviewers about the Pink Floyd sound. Just think of the guitar riff from Another Brick pt. 3 and the synths from Welcome to the Machine. Add a dash of the Orb a la the narratted parts and the mixing, and you have trip 34. As these long songs progress, the Floyd influence diminishes, but is still recognizable.
Since I love both groups, and The Porcupine Tree, I was quite happy with this recording. If you like any of them, I think you will be too. Definately best appreciated in a dark room on a good stereo played loud.
This is a re-released version of the now very expensive version I just reviewed. It looks to me like the only reason to get this if you have the other is for the new cover artwork and digipack format, and the music has been remasterd a 3rd and final time. I personally like the remastering on my Delerium copy so will stick with that one.
If you don't have this album yet, then by all means pick this one up for the better price and possible better sound quality. Look for their next full album, Deadwing, near the end of March.
