A State Of Trance 2014
A State Of Trance 2014
Price: 13.53

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great addition to the series, 1 Jun 2014

This review is from: A State Of Trance 2014 (Audio CD)
Once again AvB has picked some really great tracks for 2014's edition of A State of Trance and both mixes will not disappoint his followers. The only comments i would make is that CD1 which is always labelled 'On the Beach' and features a more relaxed sound is not quite so chilled this time - not that i'm complaining as I usually prefer CD2 'In the Club', but if there were any fans expecting slower paced tracks here you'll be disappointed. The only other thing is that some of the vocals are a bit too cheesy even for AvB's standards but that doesn't detract from enjoying the mix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing!, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Aly & Fila have been around for a while and they've produced some good tracks over the years but this is the first mix album that i've bought by them and all i can say is that it's got to be one of the strongest Trance Nation releases to date. Both discs are jam packed with fierce euphoric trance tunes and it's pretty much a non-stop journey into trance paradise :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow-up to Vol.1, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was only a matter of time before MoS released the follow-up to last year's brilliant Sound of Deep House and vol.2 certainly doesn't disappoint. It's packed with the latest top deep house tunes and luckily Ministry haven't fallen into the trap of loading it with too many commercial crossovers and they've hit the balance just right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and Fantastic!, 27 April 2014

This review is from: Eat Sleep Rave Repeat (Audio CD)
Usually when a record company comes up with a new idea for a compilation based on some new trend or craze, they end up being nothing more than a poor excuse to sell more CDs. However, MoS got it spot on with this one as they've done a really good job of selecting the tracks where they all live up to the title theme and includes some well known aswell as some not so well known tracks. The only downside is that cramming 22 tracks onto a single CD is pushing it a little and as a result a lot of the songs last around just 2 mins.

Hard to find a single bad track here - Danny Howard and MoS have done a great job of picking the best tracks for this album. Both CDs are amazing and well put together, delivering non-stop club anthems from start to finish. Brilliant!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could be better!, 27 April 2014

This review is from: Chilled House Session 5 (Audio CD)
Good variety of chilled tracks/remixes as always on this series but the mixing is a little muddled and doesn't quite "flow" the way we've come to expect from the chilled house sessions. Otherwise, still a worthy addition to your collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very average!, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had high expectations for this album after reading all the positive reviews but turned out to be very disappointing. Maybe it's because i already have a lot of the better tracks on other CDs but i was still expecting it to deliver on being a great club mix. Unfortunately though the mixing style does not work very well for this type of music - the transitions are too smooth, there's absolutely no build-up over the duration of the mix and all three mixes feel very flat with a very random track order. CD3 especially is a disaster where they've bundled in lost classics from the early 90's with tracks as recent as from 2013 and it just doesn't work!

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly boring..., 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hed Kandi The Mix 2014 (Audio CD)
Hed Kandi have decided to stick with their more traditional sound for this album but given that their previous "The Mix" releases offered a broader club appeal The Mix 2014 is quite disappointing. CD1 is the most boring of the lot and is best listened to as chilled background music. CD2 is clearly the best mix with majority of the tracks being top club tunes. CD3 could have been much better if they hadn't decided to cut all the tracks so short (full CD is just 63mins long!) and perhaps throw in a few more well known deep house tunes than the ones they've selected here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cream + Paul Oakenfold = 5 Stars, 26 Jan 2014

This review is from: Oakenfold Cream 21 (Audio CD)
It's been a while since Cream and Paul Oakenfold collaborated on a mix album and Cream 21 is certainly worth the wait. It's hard to define the sound on this album as there's a few old classics mixed together with mostly new/recent releases but Paul's mixing is really clever and he maintains a certain pace and excitement throught both CDs giving it a refreshing feel.

Yet another top quality mix from Armin van Buuren! Not a single bad track...plenty of hands in the air anthems with hard beats and euphoric breakdowns.
