    Have to say - those three tracks all sound fantastic. Looking forward to hearing the rest. GAIA - Carpo sounds very very different..

    Was pleasantly surprised too with the three tracks. They all sound interesting in their own way - the melody in Euphorie (sounds a bit like Tuvan which imo is the most unique Gaia track), the groove in Europa, and the quirkiness of Carpo. I do hope there's a mixed version of the album, as it'll be interesting to see how all the tracks fit into one overarching theme rather than three-minute byte-sized chunks.

    We've seen half the album so far.

    The tracks seem to draw inspiration from Jean Michel Jarre, Armin's childhood hero. They sound nothing like previous Gaia tracks and he has gone in a completely new direction.

    I'm very dissapointed in the way GAIA is going.....
    '4 Elements' is still my favourite.
    But the beginning of the comeback of GAIA was alsogood.
    The latest releases are not my cup of tea.

    And the samples that I've heard from the other tracks are horrible for me

    Have to say those 3 tracks on ASOT don't do much to me.

    However, I can cleary hear where he got his inspiration and I can appreciate the theme, the direction and style of this album. At least if feels like something created with soul and a clear vision. Will certainly check the complete work.

    With those 3 tracks I feel like... it would have been cooler if it actually had a techno beat. A huge aggressive kickdrum. And not a soft tech-trancy one. Then it would have been quite unique.

    I'm affraid this album will be a bit like key4050, with LOADS OF TRACKS, but all mediocre and forgettable.

    I have listened to the album, here are my thoughts:

    Metis (opening track) - this sounds like a song from the interstellar soundtrack. Very good opening
    Elara - Chill track with nice breakdown
    Dia - The melody sounds like from an old Ferry Corsten Track
    Carpo - Clearly inspired by Jean Michel Jarre
    Io - Imo this is the best track in the entire album, and the only one that can be listened to as a standalone track. The quality in this track is astounding. Great buildup and hard hitting baseline
    Europa - Another hard hitting track, but not as good as the previous one
    Ganymede - Has a great melody, but I feel it is not fully explored
    Euporie - The most "Gaia" sounding of the lot. It could be released as a Gaia standalone track.

    Overall, I think it is a great album. Armin and Benno have put their heart and soul into it and the quality is up there. However, I felt that there were many good ideas that could be developed further, but are cut off too soon. Many tracks left no initial impressions on me too. I understand that they are meant to be listened as a whole and not individually, but I feel that only 2-3 songs are good (IO is freaking amazing). The rest are forgettable on first listen.

    Apart from the baselines, the album sounds absolutely nothing like previous Gaia songs. People who expect "Gaia" tracks or who don't listen to tracks from the genre (think Jean Michel Jarre) will be left dissapointed. The album seems like a passion project

    Doesn't really sound like Gaia, expected some uplifters, but it's a helluva lot better than the pop/EDM Armin produces usually as himself. Interesting tracks in there.

    Gotta say, as a trance album it's pretty lacking (in trance), but as an electronic album, it is freakin' amazing! Lots of great synthwork. Something I'd rather expect from, say, Junkie XL or especially JMJ, than Armin & Benno. I was really positively surprised when I heard the first few tracks. Will definitely listen to this a few more times. I wouldn't mind having them take this direction with Gaia.

    There are a lot of standout tracks, but Io is just incredible and I think it will be a trance fan's favourite. That, or Euporie (though it's not my favourite).

    Of course, I have to count in the surprise factor with this, but I still think it's a good album. Now let's hope for some worthy remixes.
