A State of Trance Classics, Vol. 7
Dutch trance producer and DJ Armin van Buuren has more than his fair share of detractors, but fans need only point to his archival series A State of Trance Classics for evidence that the man knows his history. Cares for it, too, as this four-disc Vol. 7 is mammoth, pushed to the limits with complete unmixed versions of all tracks, including a few that cross the ten-minute mark. Expect tracks from the years 2000 to 2010 for the most part, all of it fitting into the genre of trance or progressive trance, with highlights coming from the likes of Rank 1, Airbase, and the mighty Markus Schulz.
