Tiësto’s career is punctuated by landmark achievements – the first DJ in the world to sell out a solo stadium event for over 25,000 people, he scored a number one hit with his single Traffic, the first instrumental track to reach the top spot in his homeland of Holland in 23 years.

Editorial Reviews

Internationally recognized as one of the world's premier DJs and producers, TIËSTO's career highlights to date are many, but recent exploits include a GRAMMY nod for his last artist album, 'Elements of Life' and headlining both Coachella and Bonnaroo Festivals. After a run of four top-selling electronic artist albums, TIËSTO presents "Kaleidoscope", an artist album in the truest sense: collaborations with a variety of music talents from the worlds of dance, pop and rock: Jónsi Birgisson from Sigur Rós, Kele Okereke from Bloc Party, Nelly Furtado, and Calvin Harris!

Customer Reviews

This does not compare to any of his in search of sunrise or magik series plus the few others in between.

If you not convinced yet just listen to Tiesto past albums then listen to Kaleidoscope,it looks someone else put it together for him...

Like everyone else mentioned, if you like good electronica and dance music, or previous Tiesto albums you will be much disappointed.

First off let me start off by saying that this is NOT a personal attack on Tiesto, I doubt that he will even read this but just to offer my perspective and opinion on this album. I have given prior 5 star reviews on Tiesto so I am not hating on him or the album.
This album is strictly intended for the mainstream, notice all of the collaborations noticeably with Nelly Furtado and with various up and coming artists. The Goal is to make Dance/Electronica music more known in the US, where while making strides, is still in its infancy and who better than to have a household name like Tiesto make an attempt at reaching this feat and make the general public more aware of this genre. Tiesto has reached an amazing amount of success for one reason, his music! No doubt the man is a great businessman as well but he has built legions of fans throughout the world by his great DJ sets and tracks like Silence, and albums like In My Memory, Just Be, etc. This album however is completely different and is NOT how Tiesto became who he is today. This is a completely new direction and perhaps a huge gamble as he aims to please and attract a new legion of listeners while perhaps turning the shoulder to his fanbase (I certainly feel this way). I can understand wanting to be different and not sounding the same but you can stay faithful to your genre without falling into that pitfall.

I feel as though the album sounds incomplete, extremely cheesy a bit rushed and the collaborations are there to attract attention but in and of themselves have no substance or identity. The production level on this record has gone lower than previous efforts and that is the biggest disappointment of all. The tracks sound extremely simple and predictable with the exception of fresh fruit and the title track Kaleidoscope.

well,this is a sad day for any Tiesto fans.we have here an album who doesn't make sense.At first Tiesto has said in an interwiew he was influenced by the music in LA,I have seen the best music and musicians comming out of LA,I have seen some of the best Trance parties comming out of there as well.This new CD is just pure garbage.The songs are poor,the music has no sustance,it will please a goup of kids who don't know better but for anyone else just don't waist your money and look for another CD set instead.
It is also very disapointing we have to pay $235.00 to see Tiesto in a Miami night club(Liv),total insanity at this point.I am not sure where he thinks he is going but at this point it is just all wrong.
If you not convinced yet just listen to Tiesto past albums then listen to Kaleidoscope,it looks someone else put it together for him...

Thank God I got to hear this album all the way through before I bought it, otherwise I would've thrown it out the car window and regretted ever purchasing it. Let's just make this short. Tiesto is a master. No matter what he puts out, he will always be one of, if not, the best trance DJ's ever. If you ever doubt his talents, please listen to "Parade of the Athletes" all the way through. He's a musical giant, an incredibly talented DJ, a great entertainer. Unfortunately, judging from this album it sounds like he is focusing more on entertaining, and less on putting out quality trance music that his fans demand from him.
I am all for artists branching out and expanding their musical horizons. For some, this album will be great. But for those of us who have every Tiesto album and have followed him for years, this album is cheesy trash. The only reconcilable piece of this album are the instrumental tracks, in which Tiesto gives us junkies just a little fix of his signature style. Apart from a couple other songs (Kaleidoscope is cool, and "I Will be Here" is decent, too). The rest is club-trash, suitable only for those who enjoy clubbing and acting like douchebags. Vocals are cheesy and painful, the music is nothing to brag about, and I had a hard time getting through 80 percent of this album. Seriously, at one point I said out loud "What the f--k is this??" I thought I had accidentally bumped the radio dial or something. After checking my iPod, I felt my stomach sink.
If you are looking for signature Tiesto, this is far from it. His new sound... let's just say it's not for me or for any other true Tiesto fan I've spoken to about it. I'm now debating whether or not it's worth the money to see him live in Vancouver. If he's playing the commercial junk that's on this CD, I think i'll pass.

I am probably going to be one of the few people here who actually enjoys Tiesto's latest album Kaleidoscope. I haven't bought a Tiesto album in some time now given my current taste in music but I was at a local record store when I heard samples of Kaleidoscope and got hooked on what I heard. I have to admit I didn't like Tiesto's previous album of original material Elements of Life (which I thought just blew chunks) but I totally dug Kaleidscope. I found all of the songs addictive due to their infectious pop hooks. I liked how Tiesto incorporated some rock influences in with his music like on "Escape Me" and "Knock You Out". People may see some of the songs on the album are cheesy but I disagree and think that trance music nowadays have become uber cheesy. Whenever I listen to Kaleidoscope at work, I get a second wind of energy from the album. I enjoyed all of the artists who have sung on Kaleidoscope. I especially like the songs that features Kianna, Cary Brothers, Calvin Harris, Tegan and Sara, and Emily Haines (of Metric). I have only had Kaleidoscope for a week. I have yet to find a song that I do not like on the album. I have yet to get sick and tired of listening to it at work and at home. For me it is a nice break from the loud and abrasive music I listen to on a regular basis. I like this album, if people don't like my review or the fact that I enjoy KALEIDOSCOPE that isn't my problem.
