Posting this for no reason other than:
  • It's from Trance All Stars, which used to spam here on Trancefix before @Gagi and the rest of the mods put an end to that
  • It was the first track from this list that I didn't immediately dismiss as an Andy Blueman copy or cheesy/extremely boring
The track starts off with a cheesy robotic voice intro, but the background synths and piano are actually neat. Non-traditional trance structure. The producer did a good job at making an interesting intro, but then they dropped the ball at 1:39 by going directly into the climax. Lol. Farty mid-to-late 2000s electro warning.
Honestly, the producer had several good ideas, and the track itself is catchy enough. I just think the structure is odd, and the track itself was not properly executed.

Untrue. We/I haven't banned/forbid anyone. I think other users complained more than us 4.

I, however, have to add that posting this in the "best of" section if you think it's just "not bad" should not be encouraged. It's not called "The Not Bad of Trance (2008-2018)".

Hahaha, better to have a thread with the above name, if you really feel you have to post something just because you are bored or whatever

I didn't mean to imply that you banned/forbid them, but something definitely happened that made them stop. I was one of the few people who complained, too! That made the forum for the better

Maybe an actual section called "The Worst Of Trance" too.
The funny thing is that this track doesn't really qualify for "The Worst of Trance" imo. It sounds like something that would have been neat to hear in one of those old-timey Youtube tutorials from 2009 (ex. "How to download and install Python" or whatever while recording on an Unregistered HyperCam 2).
For the actual bad stuff, just go down the list I linked. A lot of that sounds boring and really badly produced.
I think this one thread is worth keeping, but definitely not any more from Trance All-Stars. Let's put it down as the one track remotely resembling anything of quality from them and trash everything else.

Well I meant the section just in general.

Not based on this track. I dont know the track, and also didnt press play haha.
I have the feeling such a section would get boring real fast, since most "bad" trance productions released are exactly that: boring

The only track I can think of that is "so bad that it's good" and would be entertaining to hear is Sky0cean - I believe in miracles in the ocan underneath the sky (Magic Miracle Tayle vocal mix), but that's because the track was made specifically as a meme

If you don't mind farty electro sounds, I would actually recommend hearing the track in the OP. Although it has a weird structure (climaxes way too damn early) and doesn't go anywhere after the breakdown, it's still a nice little catchy loop.
