Armin van Buuren is one of the hardest working DJs in trance. So much so that he is often in an a State of Trance, pretty much all the time actually. And when you are in such a state of trance, once in a while you become transcendental. This is one of those songs that gets you there.

Yes, "Stellar" starts like many other trance numbers, with a ho-hum but driving beat and stuttering, almost trite buildup, and you would probably be right in thinking at the onset that there isn't much here; for there is no hint of what promise this song holds.

But if you can summon the patience to listen to around 1:55, something extraordinary happens - there is a haunting plaintive solo frontispiece, and then just like that, without even a hey-presto, the song transcends into an epic uplift. Not the kind of epic that has you humming and tapping your toes and nodding your head in time to the beat, you know, but the kind of epic that drills into your brain through your headphones and makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up in an orgy of horripilation and has you closing your eyes and holding out your hands like you were Armin himself at ASOT in Den Bosch, lights coruscating red-then-blue-then-green behind you in sync with the beat and the audience, a giant mass of screaming humanity, jumping up and down in unison as a hundred lasers light up -- not the cheap pyrotechnic ones you usually see in clubs but full-military-stength industrial neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet lasers that cut the air in swathes of smoke and sparks of ozone as they criss-cross the giant arena like Sauron's eye.

Yes, it's *that* kind of a song.

I cannot believe the segment of this song that they chose to preview! This preview is from near the beginning of the song/part of the build-up and doesn't do it any justice. This song becomes amazing at 2:45 and transcendent at 3:30. Do yourself a favor and buy it now.
