Product Description

Above And Beyond - Tri-State - Cd

BBC Review

Like it or not trance is still popular. Very popular. Week in week out clubs around the world are rammed to the rafters with party goers stacking boxes in time to the doof-doof-dikker-der of the genre that refuses to grow up. Even a cursory glance at the annual DJ polls reveals that the top jocks all peddle a mix of arena filling bosh voted for by clubbers in their droves.

However, trance has yet to be graced by THE artist album; the record that defines and does justice to the mass popularity of the sound. Many have tried and failed. Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, Ferry Corsten and Armin van Buuren have all made the effort but none has managed to bridge the gap in a way that say, Faithless, Orbital and Underworld have.

Now it is the turn of UK outfit Above & Beyond. Housing the club bangers "Air For Life" and "Alone Tonight" Tri State is a sterling effort yet, unfortunately, it does little to deviate or expand on the brief. Whilst it's tightly produced, the boys haven't really managed to ascend beyond homage.

Having set their own bar so high with their amazing 2004 Essential Mix, Above & Beyond have backed themselves into a corner. The referencing of bygone classics combined with the spoken word element made the Radio 1 showa finely crafted, colourful master piece which is up there with Oakenfold's 194 Goa Mix. "Hope" stands out as a future single but little else raises itself from the sweeping lazer fodder.

Brilliant DJs though they are and required listening Anjuna Beats may be, Tri State is little more than a passable debut. Still, better to be bosh than tosh. --Andy Puleston

I don't normally bother writing reviews because I find it hard to describe music with words (lush, deep, rich, hypnotic etc - load of pony) but, as with albums from BT, I felt the need to put something in print here. Tri State is one of the best albums I've purchased in the last 15 years. I remember when I first played leftfield's Leftism how diverse yet strangely compelling it sounded. You wanted to listen again and again and each time you found something new. This is the same. Right from the off - beautiful piano - each track brings its own qualities and the whole lot flows quite brilliantly. Stealing Time, Liquid Love and Alone Tonight weave strong vocals into the mix and are all worthy of a 'number one' but let's hope they stay here - the last thing we need is a 'radio edit' demolishing them. Yes, it is good background music, it's good music to play in the car doing 90 up the M1, but really, this should be LISTENED to, on a decent sound system, with no distractions.

So there we are - another pointless review that didn't really tell you anything about the album but I hope that this or one of the other proper reviews stands out and encourages you to give this a listen so you can see what we're all on about!

How refreshing to agree with the previous reviewer, that like most BT albums, one simply cannot resist putting at least a few words to paper (or the web!) in appreciation of something that truly is just that little bit different. In that sense Tri-state is a little different, for what a stunningly refreshing CD and like the aforementioned, genuinely a piece of music that fits awkwardly into a single-catergory of music, yet spans so many diversified tastes that everyone will gain something from it! We have shades of Delerium at their very best with "Good for me", a haunting etherial piece, awash with the kind of female vocals that send a shiver down your spine whilst rocketing your amp way up past ear damage levels!The opener is the kind of instrumental you kind of prayed that the likes of AIR would have produced had they not been so darn Fench and then we have the hypnotic, trance like beat of "Alone tonight" with vocals akin to the Blue Nile on viagra! From someone who actualy did not like their mixes, yet again in the footsteps of BT, Shasha & Way Out West the true artist proves that they do it best, when they do their own thing - no need for impersonations, imitiations - straight form the heart. I just hope Above and Beyond will do it again and again and again - A MUST for any collection - simply a beautifully crafted CD.

Above & Beyond strikes a hit again! To me Tri-State is the best trance album in the world so far in 2006. Tri-States proves why Tranceaddict.com voted Above & Beyond the No. 5 DJs in the world in 2005. Above & Beyond - Jonathan Grant, Paavo Siljamäki, Tony McGuinness - transgress beyond your day-to-day trance sounds and combine excellent music with beautiful lyrics and ethereal vocals (Zöe Johnston does a great job on "Good for Me"). Their melodically vocal trance fills your entire body with well being and energy. Pump up the volume - and do not hesitate to try some of Above & Beyond's Anjunabeats albums too.

Well this has been bugging me for ages so I finally decided to write a review for this genuine masterpiece of music. Granted this album was released 5 years ago (at the time of writing) but still even to this day it stands the test of time. In complete contradiction to the fool that wrote the review for the BBC this really is an unbelievable piece of music from start to finish.

Does anybody at the BBC even listen to Trance music anymore???? By the sounds that come out of Radio 1 on a Friday evening, obviously not!!

Like it or lump it, ALOT of people still listen to Trance, Uplifting Trance to be more specific, and make no mistake this album is right near the very top of the genre.

From the quite spell-binding opening track of "Tri-State" ( Also Check out the Robert Nickson mix of this) the boys from Anjunabeats take you on a musical journey of what can only be described as pure genius.

For me, along with Anjunabeats Volume 4+5 ( Anjunabeats Volume 4 Anjunabeats Vol. 5 )this is what made Above & Beyond great. The vocals by Richard Bedford (Alone Tonight, Stealing Time, For All I Care) and Zoe Johnston (Good For Me + Cant Sleep) are just perfect in every way. Trance supremo Andy Moor also lends a hand with the class (Air For Life) which yet again hammers home just how class this album actually is.

Above & Beyonds finest hour???? Along with the for-mentioned Anjunabeats compilations, without a doubt.

A Trance addict for 17 years and I'm holding out a sign that states Trance Lovers BEWARE of the chillout!
Don't expect full on uplifting Trance here.
There are a few Trance tunes and they are great albeit slow going but this is what A&B are delivering here in styles of Trance for Tri State. Good For Me is a brilliant dance tune and Hope has a beautiful melodic slow Trance sound. But for me there is too much chillout and to make it worse they go on for too long. Remember those awful ibiza chillout albums from 99 2000 era...
I really was hoping for a full blown Trance album here but in saying that this is still a beautiful album which won't be collecting dust.
Much prefer Anjunabeats!
