I heard "Golden Rain" on Tag's Trance Trip Shoutcast server (streaming MP3s) and decided then and there that I needed to own this album. The songs are fantastic, and the artisticly woven trance experiences put the "Art" in Art of Noise.
Subtly similar to my other favorite trance artist, Astralasia (another "must purchase" artist), these songs evoke what is true and primal about trance music. They do more than raise my spirits and spark energy inside of me that I didn't know existed, but likewise provide me with a trip that no drug could ever provide.
Some argue that MP3s do nothing but hurt the music industry. That may be so for crappy artists that get their shlock broadcast on the radio, but for me it was an opportunity to have my mind blown away by songs I never knew existed. Long live free digital music! May Art of Trance continue to produce the best trance music in the world!
