Another 5-star Review,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trance Nation Aly and Fila (Audio CD)
I'll go for broke and make this the 11th 5-stars in a row. Apart from the first few tracks of CD2 (for me), it's a very MELODIC (Hurrah! Tunes!) back-to-the-early-noughties trance trip but now, of course, wih better production values and bang up-to-date. The old turn-of-the-century trance 'tricks' - swooshes, drumbeats, good melodies, no cheese, floaty girlie vocals, high, lows and everything in-between are given a 2014 re-rub. And it works just fine.
So: well recommended for fans of mainstream (well, it used to be) melodic trance, not too proggy, and with no cheese.
Slight drawback - so much is crammed onto the CD, it struggles to cope with all the information, giving a bit of a confused sound when it gets loud. (That's listening in my car - my home stereo may be better.)
Like that? Try this: A State Of Trance 650 New Horizons, CD 3 (of 5). More of the same. Brilliant! And the other 4 CDs are not to be sniffed at. Totally terrific top ten (or more precisely, 93, if my mental maths is right) trance tunes.
A few reviewers have said that the TN series has recently 'dropped off' in quality. Yes, it probably has. But DON'T include Andy Moor in that. Another 5 stars and well worth checking out.
