Catharsis is Sven Väth's first artist album since 2002's Fire. As the vocal on the acid-tinged opening track "What I Used to Play" outlines, it does indeed reflect his 'musical footprint from different decades'. "The Worm" is the kind of bass-heavy minimal track you'd expect to hear during one of Vath's epic sets, while "Mystic Voices" is an intense techno banger, powered by a grinding low end and chain mail percussion. At the other end of the spectrum, the album reveals less documented sides to the Cocoon owner's palette. "The Inner Voice" is a dreamy electro jam, "Being In Love" is a mellow break beat workout and the title track sees Sven indulge his predilection for Asian influences, resulting in a loose percussive jam.
