4.0 out of 5 stars Varied..., 10 Feb 2004
This review is from: Nyana (Audio CD)
Another very good release by DJ Tiesto. I have to say though that I didn't quite fall in love with this compilation the first time I stuck it in my CD player. CD 1 is more of a slow start to the jounrey but once the cd has been played a couple of times the realisation is that Tiesto is simply easing you in for what is to come...
...that is what makes his work so special. He pays a considerable amount of thought and attention to how and where he is going to record his tracks. This way he can recreate the feeling of bliss he himself feels as the eager consumer pops the merchandise into the sound system! Tiesto has a completely unique style. He seems to combine all the best elements of trance into his work to create something uplifting, melodic and yet progessive. This CD is exemplar material of such a style.
CD 1 is slightly more vigorous with harder undertones. Quality vocals are characteristic throughout the entire compilation, for example Jan Johnston and Sinead O'Connor on Disk 1. The gabriel & Dresden Mix of Andain's "Beautiful Things" on CD 2 is well worth a mention - a track that leaves a feeling of warmth and content inside those who have the pleasure of listening to it.
If you are more of an Uplifting kind of person CD 2 will be ur focus. "Catcher - Destiny Sunrise" has the kind of haunting melody you will want to hear again and again. Tina Arena's contribution to The Roc Project's "Never" has been well receieved, another highly regarded track in tranceland at present. Othe rfavourite's are "POS - Remember (Summer Sun) and "Solid Globe - North Pole", placed conveniently to round-off a truly physically and psychologically addictive compilation.
Tiesto gives you the trance, the whole trance and nothing but trance - it's Class A - and MUST be bought.
