Well this is different; to criticise an Anjunabeats release doesn't feel right, but having listened to volume 9 a few times now, I have to be honest. In my opinion, it simply isn't as good as the previous volumes. Obviously, A&B can only include what is out there, and as usual the standard of mixing is second to none. They are still the best at this, in my opinion. But song selection leaves a little to be desired. Tracks 2 and 3 on the first CD, for example, are not great; Afterthought is aptly named and Median is well below the average standard. I love Cramp's RU116 though, so at this point I was feeling more positive about the rest of the album. However, overall I was left disappointed. We seem to have an influx of what I would describe as 'electro' songs on the album. I'm not sure it is electro by definition, but to me it's not trance and it's not Anjunadeep-type house either. The smooth quality and elation of tracks on previous albums is nowhere near as prevalent in volume 9. Anyone who had the (mis?)fortune of listening to Andrew Bayer's latest album, well, whilst volume 9 isn't that eclectic, it is slightly veering in that direction.
Don't get me totally wrong, it's not a terrible album by any means, but Anjunabeats' releases have set such high standards that I can't help being disappointed. The best tracks, in my opinion, are those that are more 'traditional' Anjunabeats, such as Cramp's RU116 and all of Oliver Smith's tracks. Perhaps, given this, I just don't like change, but I do believe it's more that I don't like the style as much. Maybe this is the way 'trance' music is going, or perhaps A&B are diversifying. Having said that, those songs that are more traditional Anjunabeats aren't quite as uplifting as others in previous albums, in my opinion.
But A&B are still the best in this field - buy it and see what you think.

I have every single Above & Beyond album and have been a huge fan, and after the excellent Anjunabeats 8 I was looking forward to hearing what Volume 9 had to offer, but unfortunately it turns out to be rather bland.

As usual the mixing is first class, but there is no uplifting trance which is what Anjunabeats has traditionally been about. I suppose I should have seen it coming as A&B's Trance Around The World radio show has been all about progressive tracks this year. If the text in the booklet about their new sound is anything to go by I think the Anjunabeats I've known and loved is dead and that's a shame.

For the first time listening to an Anjunabeats album I was actually bored, especially by the first disc. At least the second disc has some intensity but it's not the uplifting style I enjoy and expect from Above & Beyond. I hope this is just a blip and they return to their uplifting style in Volume 10.

I'll tell you exactly what happened, they have gone the same way as Oakenfold, Tiesto, Ferry Corsten and to a certain extent Mr trance himself Armin Van Buuren.

The growing influence of the U.S led EDM market has been affecting the style of what I would call "proper trance" for a while and here we can see what impact it has had in its full glory. Slow Housey/ Progressive tracks with little or no resemblance to the sound that has made Anjunabeats great for all these years. I thought the reason for sister label Anjunadeep was to separate the different genre's however I simply cannot believe how poor this album actually is. WHERE IS THE TRANCE????????

Gone is the magic of the "Tri-State" era where the London based lads left us spellbound with their beautiful blend of uplifting vocal trance. The signs have been there for a while however this release confirms my fears, Above & Beyond and Anjunabeats have lost their soul :(

Listening to Volume 1 -5 of this series just shows how magical the boys once where and to see how poor they have actually become is quite staggering. Some people say change is good, and no doubt the Anjuna fan boys and girls from the US will buy it in their thousands but take a step back a few years and you tell me which is their best work???

Will they ever achieve the heights of Volumes 1 to 5 again??? Probably not, which is why I now listen to such labels as "Enhanced Recordings" who are the new pioneer's of uplifting trance!!!

If your a trance fan, trust me, Avoid at all costs.
