Dutch DJ and trance master Armin van Buuren created his sixth A State of Trance in 2009, featuring a two-disc collection of some of the best, and rarest, trance smashes that flooded the club scene in 2009: Neptune Project, Phuture Sound, and Monogato all stand out as some of van Buuren's best-mixed pieces, and helped solidify this collection as a great source piece for the strongest trance tunes of 2009.
Another Solid ASOT. More 'Instrumental' than 2008.
I've waited a little while before reviewing this album. I wanted to listen to the continuous-mix tracks a few times through before I passed judgement on it. First off, if you like the ASOT Podcast or Armin's previous albums, buy this. It's more of the same goodness. That said, I don't know if it was just me (being more of a 'Vocal Trance' sort of person) but I found many of the tracks on the discs to be more 'instrumental' in nature than the previous two years of ASOT albums. It's not a bad thing, the tracks actually flow together beautifully because of this and once when I had both continuous-mix tracks queued up in a playlist, I didn't actually notice the changeover between the two. However, I feel it's worth nothing because *in my opinion* it makes the album slightly less memorable. There's less 'anthems' that you can really get into and sing along with (out loud or in your head). So, if you're into instrumental trance, this is the album for you! As mentioned, it's very fluid and it's great to listen to in the background as you do other things. If you like lyrics in your songs though, or even just nonspecific vocals, I'd say 2008 was a stronger album. Just as an example, I can currently remember quite a lot of the tracks on ASOT 2008 and their lyrics. However, at the time of writing this review I can't really remember any from ASOT 2009 and I've been listening to it constantly... So it's a blessing and a curse. Still, despite being primarily interested by Vocal Trance I'm not let down at all with this album. It's a great piece of work by Armin... So what are you waiting for? Buy it!
Essential to any library
Absolutely superb work by the legendary Armin van Buuren. What more is there to it? There's a great mix of chilled back trance intermingled with some harder styled beats. Riddles in the Sand and Helpless are two stand-outs from an all round 5-star album. For everyone with a subsrciption to he podcasts, i strongly recommend this purchase. Brillant!
Reached his peak?
Not as good as ASOT08..... sounded like all the songs were cut short and this takes away from the album in a big way. Full Mix is what makes this album work.
