Great album, but the sales...
Great hybrid of trance and house, but I find it disturbing that only a couple of songs have popularity - Alone, and especially This is what it feels like. Those are not big songs. The other, great songs have such little popularity in comparison. Another thing, Don't like "Reprise"; when I listened to it, I expected a house beat to come after that strings buildup, but instead was downtempo rock, not house even after that, but actually not a bad way to END the album, because you would hear it at the END of a movie, though not a great way. I heard "This is what it feels like" on FM radio, not thinking it was Armin, but some modern rock band. "Alone" is not trance. I like Pulsar, but the beat is not great. Album still gives me goosebumps, though. Not so poppy like the last album Mirage, but another different thing - Progressive/electro house; But it still has trance. Forever is ours is great, not really trance, but super-driving. Love never came is good, but not great, and has negative lyrics. Bland, without bassline. Turn this love around sounds like a lesser form of the classic "Love you More." Oh, don't get me wrong, this is as the greatest Armin Van Buuren album, it's mostly just that people are not buying the right songs. I do think Armin has gotten better since Shivers starting with Imagine, through Mirage all the way to this, but starting with the album Embrace, Armin got worse.
Also, where's The Most Intense Edition? Maybe it's not available in my country. I'm in the United States. Or it's not released in digital (e.g. MP3 or AAC) format. But why?
Just get Intense, Waiting for the Night, Won't Let You Go, Pulsar(?), Forever is Ours(?), In 10 years From Now, Last Stop Before Heaven, and Who's Afraid of 138. Don't get the others!
I would like 146 bpm!
