Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Tiesto sticks to his guns on a new album of original compositions that follows 2004's Just Be. Elements of Life strikes a satisfying balance between inventive vocal tracks and signature trance stormers: "Ten Seconds Before Sunrise," "Driving to Heaven," and "Bright Morning Star" all glow with the Dutchman's epic sound, one that is simultaneously haunting and uplifting. On the vocal side, the soaring energy of "Break My Fall," which features BT on vocals, will not disappoint fans of the duo's prior work on "Just Be" and other collaborations. To be sure, there are a number of less convincing pieces as well: "Dance4Life" with Faithless's Maxi Jazz falls flat, and the lyrics of "Can You Feel Me" prove that the genre's reputation for banal wordsmithing is not entirely undeserved. For the most part, however, these weaker moments are outweighed by the stronger tracks. Principal among these is undoubtedly "Sweet Things"--in which Charlotte Martin's vocal high-wire act is complemented by some exceptional programming--a track that is sure to receive a great many spins by DJs around the globe and yet further proof that when it comes to bringing alive the female voice for the dancefloor, Tiesto remains without equal. All in all, it's a safe bet that many of Tiesto's Elements will be making their way into DJ crates and MP3 players alike. --Brent Kallmer

3.0 out of 5 stars Ran Out of Ideas? 15 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album is not anywhere near as good as Just Be. It is too middle of the road trance, don't get me wrong there are a couple of good tracks but nothing really stands out that much. Carpe Diem is the biggest dissapointment with almost the exact same structure and sound as Traffic. It makes you think he has run out of ideas when you here this track as it is so similar. For an avid Tiesto fan, then I'd reccoment you buy it. I'll still buy any future albums, but I will hope it's better than this. His DJ sets are still spot on though! Check out ISOS 5, it will restore your faith in Tiesto if this has dissapointed you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new style for Tiesto 7 Aug 2007
By Youngy
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have every Tiesto album released so far and was not disappointed with this one! It does take a few listens to really get into it. It's also a little different from his earlier stuff (Nyana) and some of the "In search of sunrise" albums. It's aimed more at the mass market but it still has a good feel about it, some of it being slower or more progressive. Although there are one or two not so good tracks the others outweigh them to make it worth buying. My favorite is track 3 "Do you feel", bring on the nrg, Enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublimely satisfying electronic experience. 24 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
Tiesto first came to my attention via Faithless's Tarantula (2001), remixing the original to great effect. His Nyana phase left me a bit cold however, and I ignored him for years. Then I heard Tiesto's treatment of JES' "Imagination" and was mightily impressed. This was a mature, skilful, silky electronic backdrop to what is a good song in the first place. It sounded a world away from the electro-naff I'd been hearing in pubs and clubs in the previous five years or so. I made my decision there and then to investigate this Tiesto lark in more depth. I bought Elements Of Life without a second thought. Just one track of the same calibre would have been acceptable. If anything though, he's upped the stakes here. This is a superb set of tracks, the odd duffer aside. Particularly strong are "Everything" with lovely vocals and a great balance in the instrumentation. "In The Dark" excels and has that high-energy section near the end that's to die for. "He's A Pirate" is the closest we come to pure trance here, more old-skool Tiesto but no worse for it. A barnstormer indeed. The oddest sounding track is probably "Dance4Life" which sounds slightly out of place but is immensely potent in its own right, thumping along taking no prisoners. Tiesto is no mere "trance" DJ -that label really misses the mark by a long way these days. Superior melodic electronic music man is more accurate. This guy loves electronic music, playing it, making it, and involving all and sundry. Fantastic CD, I absolutely can't wait for the next one. And isn't that the joy of it all?

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely brilliant 17 Aug 2008
By CJW
Format:Audio CD
am a big fan of trance, progressive, house, techno, whatever you like to call it. think this album is one of the best i've heard in a long time. usually artist albums from djs are so so, if that, but i think this one is absolutely brilliant. for me the only thing that lets it down is the dance4life track - not keen on hearing the "only take e when you need to" and "aids/hiv is lethal" messages every time i listen. luckily the track is not mixed in and you can effectively remove it from the album when you put it on your mp3 player.

5.0 out of 5 stars tiesto - Elements of life 22 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
Tiesto - Elements of life,
The guy is a legend I recently went to see him on his Elements of life tour in Edinburgh. the gig was amazing I would definatly go to see him again. The talent the bloke has got is unreal no wonder he has been named as the worlds best DJ three years running! who can mix 2 different genres of music so well. This clasical + dance/trance music he creates is a intresting, unique style what only tiesto is using. I would highly recomend the album as I think the artist has a real tallent and it should be aprecialted. "keep up the good work n banging the tunes out!"

4.0 out of 5 stars Tiestos Back! 16 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
I, like many other reviewers for Tiesto, am a Massive fan and i always anticipate Tiestos work. Having read the few reviews that have been put on here before mine i find that they are highly critical of the current no.1 DJ's latest work, Elements of Life.

Indeed, this is nothing like his 'in search of sunrise' collection. But to be honest you can't compare an album in which Tiesto masterly mixes a collaboration of the latest trance music and then try and compare it to an album in which he provides some of his own work.

Having been a fan of the albums 'In my memory' and 'Just Be', i knew just what to expect in Tiestos latest offering. He offers a variation of tunes that delve into areas that he previously has dared not ventured before, just listen to 'Track 9: In The Dark' to understand what i am talking about. Not one of my favorites tunes but another worthy addition to his collection.

The stand out tunes from this album are:

Ten Seconds Before Sunrise: Another great kick start tune that reminds me of previous classics 'Magik Journey' and the haunting 'Forever Today' (One of his best). 'Carpe Noctum' and 'Elements of Life' really unleash Tiestos true capabilities in similar fashion to how 'Traffic' and 'Leathal Industry' did on the 'Just Be' album. But the stand out song on the album is the final one, 'He's a Pirate'. Tiesto my friend, take a bow! This has to be one of the best trance tunes i have heard in a very long time. Truly has to be heard in a super club with top of the range strobe lighting to be fully fully appreciated!

I will be in London when Tiesto comes to Alexandra Palace in April on his Elements of Life tour and i cant wait to hear legendary tunes past and present from the man us trance fans know as 'god'.

A great album overall. Not his best work but never the less it cant be faulted!
