Jam is great. I will defo be pretty into this if I know myself.

Tracklist is looking tasty.
I feel like Jam had a lot of potential until the build turned into a typical A&B track. It's almost like they're scared to 'push the button' if you will.
It's much better than most of their recent A&B stuffs so that's promising :)

I didn't like Jam at all, at one point it just sounded like a bunch of noisy synths and FX crammed into the melody, like most other A&B club tracks. Still, excited for some of those Vol 15 tracks!

Terrible track. Bad as anything they have produced in the last 9 years. Anjunadeep artists always save A&B releases. Jordin Post remix of Bittersweet And Blue is amazing.

I remember listening to like 2 minutes of that track and I just had to shut it off. Sure, the breakdown is passable, but the rest is just like everything else they have produced for the past years.

Jam sounds exciting. I think it's the best single they've had for the past few years (although admittedly their recent output has been poor). I think the climax could have been better, would've certainly been more up my alley were it more melodic.

@sadyk: Most of the haters haven't created a new account yet I guess. Normally a tread like this would have WAY more than 25 replies and 26 views after like 2 weeks....

Will be featured.
Warning: Terrible audio quality ahead (I mean, terrible, like 64kbps terrible)


On the old version of TF this thread would have been full of Anjunahate.
A&B hasn't released a legitimately impressive release since 2011. This is criticism not "Anjuna"-hate btw.
Also why Anjunify things? They aren't our friend, they are a business.

Fixed that for you ;)

As someone who's been following them for 15 years, I can easily say their fanbase has multiplied 10x times in the past decade, so I think it's pretty safe to say that other people got impressed with their releases.

Don't get me wrong, it's more than fine to be unsatisfied with the path they have chosen since 2011 as you say, but I wouldn't generalize things.

Also why Anjunify things? They aren't our friend, they are a business.
How exactly does this make 'em "our" friend? :confused:

Not replying to any of your statements.
Also, what is it about you setting your text to blue? Do you want to stand out or something?
I mean, you also literally put the coordinates to ?your house? (apparently) as well, so I will assume it's a yes.

CD2 is pretty lame btw.
The person who produced Reverie is not who produced Jam, Crash and I Saw Good. A&B have pretty much disbanded as a group but unofficially, I don't believe in the opposite. Their sound is all over the place, what the hell?

CD1 is a nice proggy voyage, love the gardenstate tracks especially. CD2 is an Anjunafarts tech mess and I don't like it at all, A&B once again showing their productions are trash with Crash.

Finally had time to listen this through. CD1 was much better than the second one, as expected.

Mix 1 had a more anjunadeep approach to it, which I like, but the second mix was very generic. The "modern" Anjuna sound has now been the same for ages, and it is not interesting anymore. Mat Zo - Petrushka is a wonderful track though.

If there will be a 16th volume some day, why not add some uplifting tunes to it? And I do not mean generic 138bpm trance with uplifting. Why they are stuck with the same sound year after year?

I am not that excited about it. I miss the Anjuna from 1-6

Finally got a chance to listen to this; I'm surprised how much I actually love CD 1, it's just so wonderfully deep and atmospheric. Pure Anjunadeep and so much richer than CD 2 which is just awful, awful, awful. What a horrible CD filled with one generic track after another. If I could just get CD 1 on vinyl I would be very happy.

CD1 was a a very good mix. A top Anjuna flow, for the first time in a while. I will be listening to it more and more I think. Gardenstate tracks had something nice to them, and the PROFF mix too.
