5.0 out of 5 stars Back to his true form, April 7, 2011
This review is from: State of Trance 2011 (Audio CD)
Simply put, this two disc set is absolutely phenomenal from start to finish. I personally am more of a fan of the beach stuff, but can still say that the 2nd disc is incredible and I find myself listening to both equally. I have been listening to the ASOT Yearly mixes since 2004 and 2009 and 2010 were lacking. I would venture to say that 2011 is the best one made to date, and I really like 06 & 07 before. Anyone who loves some great progressive trance needs to get this and let Armin take care of the rest. IF this is what the state of trance is in 2011, boy am I excited for what's to come. For a second I thought Armin was selling out, but this completely blew me away. Enjoy

EDIT: It's been a few days and I've had a chance to listen to both discs completely through a few times now. I just wanted to add to my review that the actual transitions and quality of the mixing done by Armin van Buuren is unparalleled. At first I was amazed by how excellent each individual track is, and that still holds true for all of them. However, it should go noticed that the transitions are very smooth and it all sounds like one long song, which it should! Additionally, I wanted to add that I HATE vocals on trance tracks, but each and every vocal track on this two disc set is extremely tasteful and beautiful; some of the lyrics have been giving me goosebumps! Again, highly recommended!

I've noticed myself listening to more and more A&B/Anjuna stuff lately and less of Armin's side of trance. I'll have to check this one out now. Thanks for the review!

Well, I'm sold!
You're right. A good Trance Dj will make a mix that flows great from beginning to end. That's a sign of an Artist. I have an old mix of Sasha and Digweed from over 10 years ago that I still play because I enjoy. It is very smooth from begin-to-end. Cheers!
