Trance has hit an all time low.
Armin Van Buuren is one if not the great Trance DJ's ever, but this compilation is awful.
The year mix's 2005-2012 were brilliant, but this is full of commercial rubbish. A lot of it is not even trance music.
Trance music is my life, and this release has almost brought a tear to my eye.
A message to all true Trance music fans out there, avoid this album. It's another nail in the coffin for Trance music.
It's just commercial electro rubbish.

Please Armin go back to your Trance roots

True radio edits are lame in the world of trance compared to other styles of music where it doesn't matter quite so much - and it does spoil this compilation a bit, but over 100 tracks for £7.99 I don't think you can complain. Armin still has a ear for the best trance out there but does include some pop. Get over it.

Special mention 7even Andy Duguid feat Jaren

Where else can you but such a great collection of Trance music for the price of this download? Clearly, you may not like every track, but with 104 + 2 "compilations/mixes", you can't go wrong!

Strongly disagree with some of the negative reviews below - and I'm not slow to criticise AVB for the increasingly Tiestoid trajectory of his career. First, I don't hear any real "pop" tunes here - there is certainly a sizeable proportion of commercial trance, but that was the case for most of his other year mixes too.

This is the fastest-moving of his year mixes yet - 107 tracks compared to the 80-85 that used to be the norm, so even if you don't like a particular track, it's not around for long. There's a lot of good stuff here, especially in the last half hour. And even if the individual melodies don't do it for you, the build - this album is a two-hour crescendo to an (IMO) wonderful climax - is masterfully done.

However, I do agree that there's a lot of shrill, ugly-sounding trance music being made these days, a lot of which makes it into AvB's live shows and some of which is on this album. That's why I think his next project should be a year mix-style compilation covering trance's golden era of (roughly) 1997-2001. I've no idea if this would be possible from a licensing or even a technical point of view, but I know that if he made it I'd pay good money for it. I love this format, and to hear some of the timeless classics from the millennium in it would be amazing.

The ASOT year mixes have been slowly losing their quality over the years in my opinion, but until now they have managed to remain good. This year's mix is the worst by far. There are undoubtedly some nice tunes to be heard, but they are overwhelmed by the quantity of cheese and crap vocal tracks. I just can't take it seriously. This is supposed to be a trance compilation, so why is there so much pop music?

Good album but it's a pain to listen to the same track over and over again.
