The Best Psychedelic Trance I've heard

Wow, narrowing that list was hard! The best I could do was list my absolute favourite albums. I skipped the progressive ones as you said you weren't that into prog. All of these albums are, in my opinion, the very cream of psytrance, but those I've marked with * are the ones I would say anyone interested in psytrance must make the time to listen to.

Here goes...

Full On:
Braincell - Frequency Evolution (2008)*
Freakulizer - The Awakening Process (2005)
Avalon - Distant Futures (2010)*
Drugon - Perfect Hallucination (2006)
Fearsome Engine - Biting Point (2009)*
Headroom - Artelligent (2008)*
Human Blue - Base Basket Buffet (2008)
Hyperion - Drop Psychosis (2008)
Ianuaria - Da Capo Al Fine (2007)*
Protoculture - Circadians (2006)*
Trold - Time Of Illusion (2007)
Tron - Biologic (2009)
Virtual Light - Limewire Voodoo (2009)
Zen Mechanics - Holy Cities (2008)*

Abomination - Enemy Within (2006)*
Brethren - The Price Of Prophecy (2008)*
Deliriant - Chemistry (2009)
Manifold - Mental Suggestion (2008)*
Phatmatix - Sorcery (2006)
Pitch Hikers - Sting (2007)*
Tickets - Dreaming Of Places (2008)
Xerox & Illumination - XI (2005)
Twisted System - Core (2006)

Hope you find this helpful! :)

The best of Goa Trance - top artists, albums and tracks

Great list overall, and I agree with 99% of it - there's just one small detail I felt compelled to comment on. How can you say that Mai Mai is the best track on Jaia's Blue Energy, and give no mention to Sillenium, Brainstorm or Nasty Angel?? Criminal! ;) nah, I'm just kidding, it's all about personal taste in the end.

My favourite artists include (but are not limited to)
Old School - Astral Projection, Chi-AD, Cosmosis, Man With No Name, MFG, Shakta, Transwave
New School - Afgin, Radical Distortion, Alienapia, E-Mantra, Khetzal, Liquid Flow, Amithaba Buddha, Ra, Artifact303
