Trance Nation ist zurück und niemand geringes als die Trance Supergroup Favouriten Above & Beyond treten in die Fußstapfen von Ferry Corsten. Berühmt für ihr Anjuna Label, ihre eigenen Künstleralben, die Oceanlab Projekte und ihre unglaublichen Live Shows war das Trio natürlich die erste Wahl für die Fortsetzung der berühmten Ministry of Sound Serie Trance Nation. Eine herausragende 2CD Box mit Trance Hits von Cosmic Gate, Stoneface & Terminal, Gareth Emery u.v.m.. Above & Beyond zählen zu den heissesten Trance Produzenten/DJs und werden in der Szene als die Shootingstars neben hochkarätigen Acts wie Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto oder Paul Van Dyk gehandelt. Ein Muss für alle Trance Fans!
Das Trio hat neben altbekannten Tracks und Djs auch hier wieder gezeigt wie schön Trance sein kann.
Mir gefallen vorallem die Tracks mit den Vocals (Gesängen) sehr gut.
Auch die Abwechslung der Tracks ist gut inszeniert: Mal etwas ruhiger, dann mal wieder was kräftiger...
Above & Beyond bleiben für mich weiterhin die Könige des Trance, und ich freue mich jetzt schon auf das neue Anjunabeats Album.
Trance Nation ist ein weiteres gelungenes Album, ich kann es nur weiter empfehlen...
5 Sterne für Trackauswahl, Übergänge, und Sympathie....
Nun scheint es von MOS eine Neuauflage zu geben, diemal von dem Trio Above & Beyond abgemischt.
Als Trance-Liebhaber kann ich diese CD allen Gleichgesinnten nur empfehlen. Ich finde die Mixes, Trackauswahl und die Klangqualität sehr gelungen, von daher gibt es auch 5 Sterne ;-)
Ich hoffe da folgen noch eineige Trance Nation Mixes, die in diesem Maß fortgesetzt werden.

Disc Two, on the other hand, is a dream. There are one or two low points (I have heard that Gareth Emery track a million times), but this is front-to-back majestic, grandiose trance. The Breakfast sound is here, along with Magenta (without its fantastic bass drop, but it still sounds great). Cold Blue is growing on me with Fever and Mount Everest (off the soon-to-be released Anjunabeats 7 compilation).
The second half of Disc Two is non-stop wonderful. I never get tired of hearing Justine Suissa sing "Yeah..." on On A Good Day, and it goes right into the best track on the whole mix, Aurora by Nitrous Oxide, and into Circles, without the overwrought breakdown (and conspicuously without Eller Van Buren on guitar). It's awesome.
I'd pay twenty bucks for Disc Two alone. Heck, I'd pay forty bucks for it. It's really special.
IMO, when it comes to pure mixing and song selection (NOTE, not how good each particular song is, but how they all flow and stand by each other. Not to say that Disc 1 has poor songs...), I honestly have to say I find Disc 1 to have the advantage. I like it for the same reason I LOVE the 1st Disc from Anjunabeats Vol. 5: it's a musical journey, taking you though several musical "chapters", or songs, of different feel, structure, even style. You get tracks ranging from punchy Progressive House tunes (Martin Roth's mix of "Break Away"), to dreamy, chill Trance landscapes (Sunny Lax's "Reborn"), to uplifting, emotional Trance songs that just put a smile of smile joy on your face (Matan Zohar (Mat Zo)'s "First Glance"). And, for the most part, it all flows into each other very well, and almost quite literally takes you on a journey. The only song on the disc that I have a negative rating for is the Mat Zo remix of Airplay 47's "Be Free", which IMO is just an unexciting, unemotional Zo-style rehash. But besides that, I really like this disc.
Then we come to Disc 2. Now, IMO, with Disc 2, it wins when it comes to the actual songs that are in it. Because it has, IMO, some of the highest quality Trance songs from the time. Both of Nitrous Oxide's tracks, Magenta and Aurora (especially Aurora IMO), Oliver Smith's spot-on Remix of OceanLab's "Ashes, Robert Nickson's simple yet surprisingly joyful "Circles", and the godlike Breakfast remix of Saint & Sinner's "Peace". It has a lot of great tracks. And the mixing itself isn't bad, either... it's just that, well... in a certain strange way the track selection feels "out of order", or just "out of place" at times. For example, the first four tracks have a more "mainstream", club feel to them (not a bad thing in itself), but then suddenly, right after the fourth track "Exposure" by Gareth Emery, it abruptly transitions into a deeper, more emotional and uplifting sequence of tracks... and I mean, for me, it felt real sudden. And then starting with N20's "Magenta" the mix once again abruptly changes tone to a brighter, simpler atmosphere. And then the last track, "Universal Universe" by Ilya Soloviev transitions back to the "mainstream" type of Trance (and, IMO, this track was a very poor choice to close the whole mix with: it's very by-the-books, not very emotionally invokive and doesn't really stand out at all as anything special).
I don't have a problem with the transitions in feel themselves happening, but the placement of these sequences and how they were mixed into each other... I just don't really feel it. Tracks like "Ashes" and "Peace (Breakfast Remix)" feel like they should have been placed closer to the end of the album, the first four and last tracks feel like they should have been in Disc 1 or a different mix entirely, and so on. Basically, to me the mixing and sequence selection makes it feel more like a catalog disc than an actual mix. I still enjoy listening to it, but really only for the individual tracks, not for it's musical journey (something which I think is very important for any mix).
I know a lot of people will disagree with me, but this is my humble opinion. Disc 1 beats Disc 2 by a long run when it comes to it's "journey" and its overall mixing and track selection, while Disc 2 wins in the area of individual tracks. Do I think either one of them are bad, or clearly better than the other? No, I just think that, especially for Disc 2, things could have been handled and mixed a bit better. But overall, this is a good comp, and I definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys Trance or stuff like that. If you disagree with me (which you probably will) or have something else to add don to this, just tell me so.

Disc 1 may not have pleased Stochastic or Gustavo very much but I personally enjoyed it. It does not beat Disc 2 in terms of song selection or overall quality. But, I didn't get that "forced together" feeling, myself. Just my personal opinion. "First Glance", "Deep Down", "Break Away" and "Interfere" are worthy tracks of mention. Give it a chance and you will not likely regret such a decision.
Disc 2...what can I NOT say about Disc 2?!?! It is indeed what it is and it is pure perfection of anything. It's the kind of compilation where you can name the least entertaining tracks with less effort than the most entertaining. It is that good.
I would not use Disc 1 as a coaster[haha], myself. But, I will agree that this is PLENTY well worth it just for Disc 2 by itself. I do believe I've had it for 2 days and already listened to it about...um...6 times, haha!
Buy it. Enjoy it. ANJUNABEATS FTW!
