The title track of Tiesto's debut album In My Memory, which was overshadowed by the singles (Dallas 4 PM, Suburban Train, Lethal Industry, etc.)

In My Memory is a nice poppy-ish track with a chill feeling. Nicola's vocals are chopped and take a couple of seconds to get used to. Great climax and special effects starting at 4:12.
This isn't meant to be super deep and progressive with a complex arrangement, so if that is your style you might want to look elsewhere. If you like your trance a bit more poppy with vocals and a simpler arrangement, or just like things that sound 'chill,' you'll want to hear this!

Airwave's instrumental remix:

The original is boring, one of the weakest tracks on the album if not the weakest. The only really good version is the Airwave Instrumental

What about the Airwave vocal mix? One of the most soothing vocals I know. Basically in love with it from the day it was released. Think I heard it for the first time on the French version of the double album which is one of the few versions to host the vocal mix unlike the Dutch release which has the instrumental.

in the case of Tiesto, it's a waste of space for a vocale. Cool song

the only thing that really annoys me about this track is the extreme panning of the main pluck.. Other then that the arangement is beautifull, and I always though the track had something early PVD'ish

Actually, yeah, it sounds a bit jarring at the beginning. I think the panning is toned down once the beats start, though.
The section from 4:12 onwards doesn't really suffer from this issue.

Always had a soft spot for the original and never tried the remixes, but will add them to my list.

For me it's that breakdown it's so nostalgic. I get goosebumps everytime I hear it in the Airwave remixes.

Liking the Airwave and V-One mixes. Also shout out to the Elephant Vocal Mix from Gabriel & Dresden and probably the rarest of the mixes, Fade's Santuary Mix:
