Trance 2.0 = Fail
on 24 September 2011
Everything changes, but Above & Beyond have taken a step too far for me.
I like house and I love trance, but not together.
Maybe they should have picked their creative advisors better.
A great pop album, beautifully executed, but soulless and a "pay day" album.
Anjunabeats 7 is a better place to discover trance if you are new to the genera. Don't get me wrong, there are two tracks on the album that are fine and A&B play them to death on the road, but if you want a bit more from your trance, I suggest you buy this second hand.
Checkout Super8 & Tab (they are on their label Anjunabeats), the Finnish trance masters know how to master an uplifting trance/pop tune.
Sorry Tony, Paavo & Jonno, I followed you for many years, but this isn't the A&B I (and countless other) love.
Leave the turgid pop to Tiesto and Arty, your talents are wasted chasing the easy dollar.
