Another 2 tracks from the same 1997 release.

X Marks The Spot (which was actually inspired by Speedy J - Symmetry, as he said in one of his interview)

and Archeae From Space

The final track on Northern Exposure 2, and what a way to end it. This mix is a great one because it puts you in a Trance-like state with the Progressive House journey for 80% of the mix and then drops in a big emotional and melodic moment at the end to complete the climax. Didnt Armin write this in 4 hours?

Holy balls, X Marks The Spot is actually a great trance track. Didn't expect to hear this style of trance from Armin at all. Archeae From Space as well. Just...wow! I remember taking a listen to those around 5 years or so ago, and me not liking them very much. Oh, how my taste has changed... Now I gotta relisten to his early discography again!

I also used to love Blue Fear very much, because it is one of the few unique, never-done-again tracks in this genre. And @TRANCEBLASTER he did make a rework, though in 2003.

Overall, a really strong release from Armin here. It says on Deezer that it was released in 1996, but can't find that info on Discogs.

Blue Fear has that dark yet uplifting feel to it which is rare in trance. Phenomenal track.

Blue Fear itself I've always had some mixed opinions about, but the other tracks of the EP are ver nice, especially X Marks the Spot.

Original is so good, as someone mentioned a great way to end Northern Exposure.
