    ^ Unfortunately too many people like the new generation of Anjunabeats. I do wish A&B would just fade away because they're a disaster nowadays though.

    I hate to say it, but I have zero faith in this album. It seems A&B haven't gotten the memo that the EDM craze is all but over. Maybe they'll surprise us with some classic stuff,but I highly doubt it.

    Christ, how did it go so wrong for them. The first few Anjunabeats comps, and their first album were all stunning albums. How the mighty have fallen.
    It's about time we infected them...

    No hopes for this honestly. The two tracks they've released so far are terrible. The lyrics to "My Hymn" are probably some of the worst lyrics I've heard in a long time and an utter waste of Zoe's voice.

    If I like even 2-3 tracks on the album, I'll be pleasantly surprised. Its sad how they seem so comfortable with this sound and don't try to step away from it. Its great for a label and an artist to have their own sound but not to this extent where every track has the same formulaic approach (goes for A&B and Anjuna in general).

    Tightrope... I think there's something wrong with me because I actually quite like it.

    This album will be their worst ever, I've no doubt. I expect even less from this album than I do from Donald Trump.

    It's just a shame that we lost one of the top trance groups to pop music. I don't really have a problem with these new tracks, I guess technically they are good and vocalists are good, it's just not anything I really care to listen to. I've always wondered why almost every trance producer goes from instrumentals to 100% vocals once they get famous, A&B, Armin, Paul van Dyk, Gareth Emery.. I guess the opportunities to work with vocalists increases the more successful you become and are hard to pass on.

    I admit that there are many good vocal trance records, but trance to me is instrumental at it's truest and most engaging form.

    Fastest and easiest way to sell more to the masses? Easier to trigger the ole' psychoacoustic effects + mega feels! Cheese sells and vocals are almost guaranteed to deliver the quickest and potentest wedge of it.
