5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect trance compilation, 3 May 2013
Great flow, great track selection, not too cheesy (like a lot of current trance) and just an all round excellent album... I personally like the crowd sounds as makes it more immersive. Definitely the best trance comp I have heard in the last year ...

1.0 out of 5 stars Offensive, 18 Mar 2008
This review is from: A State Of Trance 2007 (Audio CD)
Utterly appaling. It's difficult to overstate how bad this is: first the track selection. Cheesy synth strings, terrible female vocals and lyrics, utterly predictable chord structures and break downs..... There is nothing on this compilation that is any different from trance released in 2001

The production is decent but workmanlike from someone who is meant to be the number 1 DJ in the world?

It's such a shame that Armin has gone down this populist route as he does have some talent, but this CD is complete dross. If you are a fan of Eurodisco/ pop music you might like this CD. Otherwise save your money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Modern theology, 28 July 2004
Ford's work is very comprehensive, covering many aspects of modern theology, in a balance between Protestantism and Roman Catholicism. There are omissions, for instance in process theology and certain post-modern theologies, but generally the ground covered is very useful.
However because of the breadth of the materiel covered, there is often a lack of depth in analysis. It is difficult to cover Moltmann in 16 pages, and many of the theologians are not fully covered. That said, the aim of the book is to introduce readers to these theologies, and it does this well. In addition I would have preferred it if the book had analysed individual theologians more, rather than the more general expositions on movements and schools. For instance I'm not sure what the point in chapter 34 "Theology and the Arts: Music" is; it would be better to introduce another specific theologian. This applies to a number of the chapters. Liberation theology is studied in depth with individual attention given to feminism (2 chapters) African, Asian, South American and Native American liberation theologies. This seems excessive to me - surely these all could come under 'Liberation theology?'
The contributory writers and their commentaries are all of a high calibre.
So for a general approach to modern theology, I would recommend this book. It receives only three stars because in places it is just too general - as a consequence of attempting to cover too much. It is useful as a study aid; mainly to provide background to a subject, and to give an idea of related thought.
