"I bought this DVD after watching "Oddysey's Into the Mind's Eye", since I was quite impressed by that title. "Headcandy" was not what I expected, and was totally different from the previously mentioned DVD.
Even though it was totally different, this is still a mind-blowing DVD that must be watched. This is all abstract, no defined pattern to it, all abstract. One thing that annoyed me a little is that after a while, the pattern stayed the same. It was all based in circles, triangles, squares & dots, that were all based in the CENTER of the screen, and from there each angle would split and form the same figure in all 4 corners of the screen.
That is not a defect, I just found it to be very uniform. Another thing, is that the 3D glasses DO ADD an effect to viewing this DVD. Without the glasses you will NOT experience the effect as it was meant to be.
I give it 4 stars because I found the pattern to be rather repetitive, but still I highly recommend it to anyone.
Turn off the lights, turn on your music (if you don't like the one in the DVD, which is not so great btw), and enjoy.
I had fun. I just gave you a few tips on how to watch it.
The rest, is up to your imagination."
A Pleasant Surprise

"This DVD was wonderful and hypnotic to watch. I was surprised how good it was. But there was another surprise. the DVD comes with 'prism' glasses that can be used to view other psychedelic videos you may have. Such as:'Happy 2b Hardcore' by Moonshine/AVX.
'Transambient 1,2, and 3', also by Moonshine/AVX
'Spaced Out' also by Moonshine/AVXThe other 3 DVD's are also sold by Amazon so check them out. It was fun to put these other DVD's on and watch them wearing the 'prism' glasses from Sydney's Psych Adventure and my own electronic music from my cd collection thumping away.Anyway, Get this DVD you wont be dissapointed."
Where's the Dramamine?

"The prism glasses extend the viewing range beyond the edges of the screen by casting a ghostlike mirror reflexion of what is on the outer edges of the frame. The effect is very impressive, though I'm not sure it's true 3D. Probably not, since the program can be viewed without the glasses with no image doubling or overlapping.

Viewing it on a 100 inch screen with a ceiling mounted projector, I was simply blown away. With the prism glasses on, the image seemed to fill the entire wall and covered most of my peripheral vision. The colors were vibrant and the designs hypnotic.

If I have a complaint, it's that the kaleidoscopic patterns grow repetitive after a while. I would have preferred more variety, like the amazing "atom/star" sequence near the end, about 49 minutes into the program.

The "wow" factor is very strong. It's a great way to show off your home entertainment center and would look fantastic projected onto a wall at a party."
