I have been faithfully listening to Armin Van Buuren since 2007. I own a majority of his music which includes his yearly A State of Trance compilations, Universal Religion, and his Ibiza compilations. I also own most of his artists albums and have seen him live on multiple occasions. I blindly purchase anything that he publishes (and I wear the ASOT brand of clothes!).
I also own and listen to music from other legends such as Above and Beyond, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Eric Prydz, etc. I say all of this to give you an idea of my knowledge of Armin and trance music in general.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is quite possibly the best artist album he has put out in years.
Now, I’m a grown-ass man in his mid-30s. I still buy his ASOT compilation albums without a second thought. But I always wanted something more...mature. This album does it. Yes, it’s not typical party/nightclub trance (although some tracks do adhere to that standard). This is an album for those who like to think, plain and simple. This mixing is outstanding, the order of tracks is flawless, and each song is cerebral as all get out.
The beauty is that each song is tailored to the listener’s personality. I know, weird as hell, but it is something to keep in mind when THAT song comes on. For me, it’s Io.
I hope you keep an open mind and consider this as your next purchase. Remember Armin’s famous quote: “Don’t be a prisoner of your own style.” Wise words indeed.
By the way, if anyone from ASOT is reading this, please, please, please create more music like this. I promise that us older clubbers will appreciate it.
