Following suit from volumes 5 and 6, Disc 1 concentrates on the more house orientated side of the label. Though I haven't been a huge fan of the 'Anjunadeep' disc in the past, it is in my opinion is the strongest first CD since Above & Beyond introduced the concept with Volume 5. Right from the start the beats are chunky and the melodies are tap-your-foot-along catchy. Established label personalities such as Boom Jinx, Jaytech, Oliver Smith and Mat Zo deliver the bouncy goods, though the real gems come in the form of Above & Beyond's very own take on Dirty Vegas' 'Tonight' and the beautiful 'Safe' from Velvetine, combining the talents of Myon & Shane 54 with the blissful vocals of Aruna. And of course the bouncy anthem 'Anjunabeach' by Above & Beyond themselves, sure to be a favourite at gigs.
The second CD, however, I feel is a bit of a let down. From Anjunabeats albums of the past there's always been a track or 2 that really gets your spine tingling, complete with a few melodic breakdowns that metaphorically lanch you into space and leave you in tranquility. Don't get me wrong, the quality of tracks is still very good; Adam Nickey, Super8 & Tab, Dan Stone and Daniel Kandi all delivering some quality trance. It's just the lack of that killer edge that has really set Anjunabeats apart from other trance labels that I feel is missing from Volume 7.Read more ›
Needless to say this is another fantastic album, which prior to V6 would have been awarded five stars for sure. I largely agree with the other reviewer so far, and here's why.
CD01 is arguably the best individual Anjunabeats album that has been produced. The craft and construction of this album is outstanding, and I would say it even surpasses either disk indivudally on V6. It is probably the tranciest first CD we have seen since A&B started to introduce double albums, I assume because they are saving their housier tracks for Anjunadeep Volume 2. It is the start of a real contrast between the Beats and Deep labels.
CD01 does have some housier tracks than CD02, but they are largely quite progressive, and almost class themselves as 'slow trance' rather than house. There is a much greater use of long and flowing synths on this CD, more than we have seen on the previous two CD One's. Some of the tracks are outstanding, particularly both of the tunes by Oliver Smith and of course the floorfiller thriller Anjunabeach. Despite this however, we still get a feast of very ambitious and (as the phrase has now been coined) 'chunky' basses. A truly awesome album with all the qualities of an Anjunabeats special, combining everything 'slow trance' has to offer.
CD02 isn't as good as CD01, for pretty much the reasons the previous reviewer gives. With the exception of both Cold Blue tracks, which are excellent, there is little to shiver the spine or lift you up to another level. It may be down to the music available of course, and isn't necessarily a criticism of A&B (of course!!Read more ›
I cant really describe how much im disappointed by this album. Im a big fan of A&B,the artists before A&B and the releases on the Anjunabeats label... but im afraid that it seems we are to be utterly disappointed by this album. Before i start.. this album may interest youngsters who are new to the scene, but the more experienced people in the scene may agree. Volume 6 Had some so called "electro" but it was progressive.. this volume is mostly about sounding like endless loops of repetitive hollow 80s pop tunes or elevator music with lots of swishy sounds.
First Disappointment.. not one single track makes a 5 star in my library and only 5 make 4 stars (The first Anjuna ever to score so low) and in fact the number of 1 stars is quite staggering).
Even more disappointing is theres nothing amazing from A&B themselves, i score only 3 for their single track "Anjunabeach" which is me being very kind.... compared to massive tracks before like Alone tonight, Home, Far From In Love etc...(OMG the list is endless)... but the rest you will be far far far from in love with departing with your cash for... There is nothing even significant to redeem it even from the pick of the bunch like Sunnylax, Mike Koglin and others who have massive trax on other Anjuna albums (5 stars)its quite a disappointment.
The break in almost every track is almost like a trip to your local DIY store... wallpaper/elevator music.. with no direction or point, just wishy washy sounds with almost all of them having a very "Swishy" sound all throughout.Read more ›

Both CD 1 and CD 2 are pretty average. CD 1 has some good tracks; the above & beyond remix of "Tonight" by Dirty Vegas is excellent, as is "Safe" by Velvetine. Read morePublished on 1 May 2013 by Will
