Not sure whether to give this a three or four star

I'll give it a three star, because I'm shocked by the reviews being all five star, I'll stress some of the negative.
Great at being house, but this isn't the Armin we know and love.
No trance sound.
If you want house, get Avicii, David Guetta, or Zedd. If you want trance, get Sean Tyas, Talla 2XLC, Alphazone, Paul Van Dyk, or Dash Berlin. If you want hybrid, get Armin Van Buuren.
Armin probably uses this music to make money. Then he'll have money to get what he needs, and money to make quality music. He probably also uses mainstream pop to draw mainstream listeners. Some of those mainstream listeners will stumble onto and gain knowledge of Armin's true trance tracks and albums. Maybe Armin wants trance to be popular. Maybe Armin wants trance to go mainstream, not in the sense that it changes style to a mainstream sound, but in the sense that it becomes popular and gets promoted. When Armin makes another true trance album, some of the mainstream listeners that were drawn by intense, embrace, and such will see the trance album and buy it.


Heard this off pandora

Very nice catchy song!


Proud to be # twenty three.

A few songs choke me up and heal me a little at same same. This one one of those.

About Armin van Buuren

A progressive trance DJ and producer whose cinematic sound is influenced by synth pioneers like Klaus Schulze and Jean Michel Jarre, Armin van Buuren enjoys worldwide recognition and a frantic schedule that takes him all over the globe. Born on December 25, 1976 in Leiden, Holland, Armin became interested in music at an early age (his father was an avid record buyer). A close friend introduced him to the world of dance music, and the Dutch DJ and remixer Ben Liebrand quickly became his main inspiration. It led van Buuren to investigate the roots of the electronic music he was becoming fond of, and numerous Jarre and Schulze CDs were acquired. Computers and turntables were also purchased, and creating his own music became a priority.

In 1995, van Buuren attended Leiden University, and a local student club provided the venue for his first DJ gigs. The same year he was fortunate enough to have some demos included on compilations, and when the money came in, it was rolled back into producing 12"s. Cyber Records released his first hit, "Blue Fear," in 1995, and by 1999 his "Communication" was successful enough to get him signed to AM:PM. He also formed his own label, Armind, in 1999 and met Dave Lewis, a man responsible for jump-starting the careers of DJ Tiësto and Ferry Corsten. A collaboration with Tiësto yielded his biggest hit yet on Armind, "Eternity," and marathon five-hour sets brought him more attention. High-profile remixes of Madison Avenue's "Don't Call Me Baby" and Wamdue Project's "King of My Castle" followed, and numerous mix CDs were released on United Recordings.

By 2002 he'd placed number five in DJ Magazine's Top 100 and was hosting his own weekly show on the Dutch ID&T radio station. By the end of 2003 he found time to set the worldwide record for longest DJ set (12 and a half hours at a club in The Hague), finish his law degree, and release his first non-mix CD, 76. Shivers followed in 2005, with Imagine arriving in 2008. His 2010 effort, Mirage, featured singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor along with fellow producers BT and Ferry Corsten. Van Buuren returned in 2013 -- after numerous mix albums, including his annual additions to the A State of Trance series -- with his fifth studio album, Intense. The album was expanded in 2015 as Intense: The Most Intense Edition, a set that turned the original LP into a four-CD/one-DVD box featuring remixes and recordings of live gigs. His collaboration with Cosmic Gate, "Embargo," landed that same year. The track would appear on Van Buuren's sixth studio album, the Dutch chart-topping Embrace, which also featured Gavin DeGraw, Hardwell, and Mr. Probz.

Over the course of the following years, he continued his yearly State of Trance series, climbing to his 14th installment, State of Trance 2017. ~ David Jeffries
