AllMusic Review by

DJ Tiesto's Black Hole Recordings continued to expose possible future competition with the second installment of the gently educational In Trance We Trust Series, but Norwegian hopeful DJ Stigma didn't exactly use the opportunity to his best advantage. The well-meaning mix was frequently stuck on baffling lapses of new age oceanic imagery, flaky self-affirmation, and a lyrical barometer set by "I come from the planet of liquid skies." Vincent De Moor's "Shamu," Kamaya Painters' "Outstream," Kay Cee's "Love Stimulation," and Ron Hagen & Pascal M.'s "Forever" were all good choices, and Stigma showed promise behind the decks, but the sensationalist eco-commiseration did more harm than good.
