    People obviously have different taste and a different views on this matter. Dumonde to me is the biggest example of doing the same track over and over again, same arrangement, same kick, same bass, same synths in every track, just a different melody. A lot of people loved that sound, so they just went with it, but artistically they are far from the top in my book. And I wouldn't consider Lange or Matt Darey unique at all, they both basically just did exactly what everyone else was doing at the same time. You could even consider Lange to be a huge bandwagoner, seeing how he has always changed his style to whatever seems to be popular in the trance scene. No doubt he has made some amazing tracks in the past, but I don't think any of them were really unique.

    I would definitely consider Ferry Corsten a pioneer in the scene, but it's not like people recognized his sound when "Punk" or "Right of Way" came out, we just accepted that he now sounds like that. Most people were furious that he had change his sound and style so drastically. In my view he's changed his sound about four times (early 90's stuff, late 90's supersaw, the electro trance era and the modern sound), and during each phase he's pretty much used the same template. Even in the last 5-10 years each of his songs have the same kick, similar percussion and similar synth sounds.

    and imo theres nothing wrong with that - thats their identity as an artist. Would you rather a producer make a totally different sounding track everytime? The ideal way is to have your own sound, but progress it and evolve it throughout the years,but still keep your identity. I agree Dumonde never did that but they were only active for a short amount of time. Lange is weird one as i havnt rated anything he made after around 2004.

    BINGO!
    Finally someone said it. Objectively, even some of the big name producers from the Trance heyday were not that good.
    Props to Matt Darey for coming up with Point Zero, but otherwise his productions were largely much like from the conveyor belt that churned out generic trance anthem after generic trance anthem.

    Another great example how guitar can used in trance (for example intros)
    Does not sounds that great? Just something new.
    Imagine it with mixed synths.
