Like many of Armin's other ASOT albums, this one took a while to grow on me. I'm glad I stayed with it, because it currently stands as one of my favorite A State of Trance releases of all time.
My personal favorites are Athena, Once Lydian, Back To You (Wach Remix), Decibels, U (Bryan Kearney Remix), and RAMelia on the first CD, and The Late Anthem (Way Too Late Mix), MaRLo – Visions, Marathon (Simon O’Shine Remix), and Save My Night (Allen Watts Remix).
Other than End Of The Road (Hazem Beltagui Remix) and Ping Pong, I found myself thoroughly enjoying the offerings found on this compilation. I think it's one of Armin's few recent Trance productions worth purchasing.
