Above & Beyond raise the bar every year with their Anjunabeats collection, and given these and the success of their previous artist album Tri-State, there was plenty of pressure on A&B to make this a fantastic album. And by and large, not surprisingly, it is.
I have criticised other trance artists, Tiesto and Armin van Buuren for example, for using excess vocalists on some of their previous albums, with a view to becoming more commercial rather than adding a genuine improvement to their tracks. So when I realised that the majority of tracks on Group Therapy contained vocals, I became a little wary. But the vocals here, trance lovers, are not overbearing and are not there purely to earn money for the artist. For a start, only two different vocalists are used, Richard Bedford who sung on the stunning 'Alone Tonight,' and Zoe Johnston, who sung on the likewise 'Good For Me.' They have gone for vocalists that (a) are very good and that genuinely compliment A&B's music and emotions, and (b) that aren't well-known. They provide a refreshing thought-provoking ambience to each track and fit with the music perfectly.
OK, maybe personally I'd have preferred a couple more non-vocal tracks; after all we know A&B are more than capable at creating and mixing songs without vocals; but this is just my taste and the harder 'Nitrous Oxide' type trance side of me talking. To knock off a star for this may seem harsh but let's face it, they have set such a high standard in recent years. And to emphasise - none of the tracks are ruined by vocals; on the contrary, all are significantly added to because of them.
A&B are thoughtful people, and this thought and emotion is expressed in every song.

Not much to add to the other 20 reviews (yes 20, compare to the average number of reviews on CDs in the rest of Amazon's trance chart, regardless of the chart placing, and you'll get an idea about how much more affecting these guys' music is than most)... but, having had time to really digest it I'll wade in anyway, as any new A&B artist release is bound to be worth a few words.

As other reviewers have suggested, maybe just one additional vocalist (Ashley Tomberlin, for example?) might have added another layer of interest, and the instrumental tracks, while complementing the vocal ones, don't even seem to pack the same punch as on the classic Tri-State, from which the "sound" has not evolved much. Don't see that as a negative, though - it's just another collection of quality melodic trance for you to enjoy.

Some of the songs, although very thematically simple, are lyrically interesting (Alchemy), others go into deeper storytelling (Black Room Boy); if you want banging, chunky basslines, then You Got To Go, Black Room Boy and Giving It Out all deliver in spades, while Zoe Johnston serves up a tear-jerking tour de force on Only A Few Things which is every bit as memorable as Good For Me was on Tri-State.(You can easily imagine her re-recording this in her folky, acoustic solo style to devastating effect.)

But yep, there are a few slices of super-strong cheese, too. On My Way to Heaven would have benefited from lines and superfluous lines of Richard Bedford's lyric having been cut from the opening, at least until after the kick drum got going, giving the track more of a chance to develop, and on the chorus of Thing Called Love, you're thinking: "Hold on, did he really just rhyme 'forget' with 'regret', and then 'forget' again?"

Such gripes aside, Above & Beyond have made Xmas shopping for stocking-fillers a hell of a lot easier, as I know a few people who will really appreciate Group Therapy.

I had always associated "trance" music with mindless drug fuelled raves, but a chance hearing of "World on Fire" as a soundtrack to a Project-JK (Jeep) video led me to buy Above & Beyond's first "artist" album Tri-State. It never left my car's CD player for the next 4 years, and became my favourite driving album of all time. I looked forward to the release of their 2nd album, Group Therapy, but didn't think that it could possibly top Tri-State. At first play, I was slightly disappointed. It is somewhat darker, slower, and has less of the dance/driving beat that I loved on Tri-State. But first play can be deceiving - Group Therapy is more complex, and ultimately more rewarding than Tri-State. The dance beats are still there, but the emotion in the songs has been taken to a new level. Zoe Johnston's beautiful pure vocals on "Alchemy", and "Love is Not Enough", are heartbreaking. Every song, with the exception of the lightweight "Giving it Up", has depth and power. All of them are beautifully crafted. One year on, I still hear things that I hadn't noticed before. So Group Therapy is my current favourite album of all time. But I still don't like "trance music".

Very disappointed with this album.It's more a put you to sleep cd than rave or techno.
That said I will keep it on my top shelf.
Although most of the tracks are much the same. It makes good background noise
I'd give it 2 out 5 for effort

Well, here we are again, 5 years on from the release of Tri State and what a 5 years it's been! For some reason my previous review of Tri State still sits at the top of the 'helpful review' pile despite me saying very little about it other than '..it should be listened to..'. Well the same applies here. I'm not going to describe this one either. Except that Group Therapy once again delivers one of the finest 'dance' albums in recent years. This isn't a 1 hour 20 minute trance fest. Nor is it a random collection of studio tracks. Simply, this is the sound of Above & Beyond - Group Therapy indeed. I'm also looking forward to the remix pack that will no doubt deliver the 8 minute DJ friendly tracks that could keep any dance floor, big or small, going for a couple of hours. Thanks A&B.
