it isn't the greatest of all time, but you can really hear later aspects of sweet trip albums in this, and it's still a really good sounding album for its time, it's definitely beautiful in its own way. i'm a believer in the fact that you can't have something for nothing, in this case we can't have the shoegaze geniuses without alura or halica. i just so happen to enjoy it. i think this album is really underrated/underappreciated within the community, which is a bummer.

alura: 9.5/10

This dance-heavy EP, while not quite in the same vein as other Sweet Trip projects, still contains Roby’s trademark immaculate synth work and atmospheric textures. These elements make for a somewhat Aphex Twin-esque experience, with its undeniable grooves hooking you in.
Favorite Track: Palomar, Your Shadow is the Yellow Sun

Not exactly the type of music I want from Sweet Trip, but this is a vibe nonetheless.

A more club-oriented approach to contemporary electronic music from Sweet Trip, before they became electro-shoegaze masters
