The Galen Behr vs. Orjan Nilsen remix is just *massive*. Good move by Armin to include it in ASOT Classics Vol. 4.
Tbh I had never heard the original. It's okay, but you can tell the melody and vibe are being held back by the slower bpm.

I think this track highlights what can be accomplished with melodic types of trance. It happened a bit too late, well past the golden era of 1999-2002 and slight progressive revival of 2004, but damn this track matches the quality of trance from those eras. Carabella along with Arksun - Arisen are an overlooked peak of this entire genre, imo.

The remix clearly overshadows the original. Just lovely, uplifting trance that's actually uplifting. Not the first track of its kind - there were a few (Arizona vs Passiva the year before and his DJ Governor) - but one of the best indeed.

I've heard Orjan play this during an ASOT event as his closing track. It's not often he picks his older (uptempto) tracks, so that was quite a surprise.

Great track. Like Gagi said, it's perhaps nothing extremely new, just executed REALLY well.
