Best anjuna titled comp released yet! Love Vol.12. Sometimes you get a not so great track and need to skip but it's not the case with this album! Absolutely perfect from the deep chilled anjunadeep tracks to the high energy prog trance tracks! Really loving Ilan bluestone, Grum and kyau and Alberts work with the label at the moment so this album is perfect for me! Can't wait to see above and beyond for abgt 200 in Amsterdam, hope some of the guys featured on this album are the guest acts at the gig! Keep up the good work lads
I’ve loved Anjuna / AAB for some years now, though accepted some aspects of modern progressive house were perhaps a little plastic compared to the old days of Renaissance etc.. This compilation is something entirely different. Rich, mature and brilliant. This is a genuine classic compilation, up there with the all time greats.
Having been an Anjunabeats fan for over 5 years now, I've got all of their past compilations, all of the artist albums released by the label, and listened regularly to the podcast that was once Trance Around the World and is now Above & Beyond Group Therapy.
For me this is the best release yet, in terms of the number of tracks that are top quality, and in terms of the flow of the mixes.
If you like Anjunabeats and ABGT then you should already have bought this. If you love trance, great melodies, and top production, then click 'buy' now!
Album is stunning. Not one duff track on both CDs. But the physical album, 2 X CDs are £10.99 or less, yet Apple charge £9.99 for the virtual one. Then you have the faff of being prevented from using it fully. Buy the CD, then it's yours forever.
Masters of their genre in every respect. Jam packed with some classic remixes and some new gems which will become A&B classics. All deliciously mixed up to track selection perfection! Well done lads.....we salute you !!
I don’t know why but the sounds of this compilation is shifting towards a more electro style, bit drifting away from the progressive sounds that A&B often delivers. Should have included tracks like Lightspeed - Grum to balance out the noisiness of the exceeding amount of electro tunes.
What an album. They really are back to there finest with this album. Treasure is amazing. The last couple of anjunabeats albums have been poor but this really does make up for it. Welcome back above and beyond!
Some euphoric beauties in here, worth every penny! One thing: the individual tracks aren’t full length, they’re cut from the full length mixes, so not so great for bedroom DJ’s.
Once again Above & Beyond blow you away. Amazing! ❤️
Having been a bit disappointed with recent Anjunabeats compilations, this is much more like the classic and diverse music we are used to hearing on this compilation!
Some absolutely awesome tunes!! Loving "Circles", "Under Your Skin", "Treasure" Remix, and "Mirage" are all amazing! The only ones I am not a huge fan of are "A.I" and "Mezzo Forte", didnt think they were great productions but thumbs up for the rest!!! :-)
I have to say that I was expecting alot, which is really all credit to what Jono, Tony and Pavo have accomplished over the years. They've set the bar impossibly high and volume 12 pretty much gets there, again! The album includes some great tracks, some of which have been knocking around in their sets and others which are pretty new, which makes for an exciting listen. I think it's best to review the mixes separately, and I would say the following;
Mix one - really good mix, some quality tracks (an example - smoke and mirrors 😎) and its well put together;
Mix two - good mix, some great tracks. I just feel that some of them have been shoehorned in which makes for a slightly clunky flow and some awkward mixes, still...great listen overall.
Would be interesting to know if anyone feels the same...
Top draw stuff from the guys🇬🇧
Like a good golf caddy , above and beyond tee it up, and I keep smashing that play button, anjunabeats for life !
Just listened to the recent addition to the anjunabeat series (volume 12). Since volume 4 was released (volume 1 will always remain the best and most original) in my opinion each release was worse than the previous one (except maybe for volume 9). After volume 10 I vowed never again to buy another anjunabeat edition. I turned my musical attention to the anjunadeep series, which have been excellent (so far). So I was intrigued to hear that volume 12 had a more deeper side to it. Volume 12 has gone back to its original trance beliefs musically with a little dark/deeper side and I throughly enjoyed listening to this album, more the same I might buy volume 13........
Awesome album by the best trio in dance music!some great a&b anthems from the year and some massive tracks from Ilan and Andrew Bayer!
As always A&B delivers awesomeness. Enough said.
However Faithless track mix is epic.
Well it's been a long wait since October after watching ABGT150, I was looking forward to a few new releases. With the return of Oceanlab I couldn't wait to here Another chance on my headphones. I was really looking forward to the club version which isn't on the album. Don't get me wrong it's a great track but with a beat it's incredible.
Few new surprises this time, and who really captured my ears was Jerome Isma-Ae with Smokes and Mirrors. Strong,Powerful and demanding.
Kyau and Alberts- About the sun was my fav download of the album. Seriously good track and fell in love with it as soon as I heard it in October . As always Sunny Lax and Andrew Bayer standing strong with some more of there own unique sounds and give the album a real kick of what's coming in 2016.
But at the top as always for best new material Above and Beyond have delivered yet another handful of great new songs and have shown no weakness in new material.
It's a lovely blend of the Anjuna kitchen.
I look forward to seeing you at the Royal Albert Hall.
All the best Sydney Shore
Another beautiful Album from Above&Beyond, realised just at the right time of the year. Never disappointed when a new album is released. Xmas listening is now sorted! 👍🏻
I know the album isn't out yet and you may question how we can review it but having heard most if these tracks either on ABGT or at live sets throughout I can confirm this album is jam packed with amazing tracks. Anjunabeats is still the label to beat. Now stop reading this and hurry up and pre-order this damn album!!!!!
Thanks for ending the year with this A&b! :)
Have pre ordered this album in cd format as I love to have them in my hand...... Can't wait.... What a crimbo present to myself
Saw the promo trailer on Youtube, which has only confirmed how I expect this to be an awesome compilation. Been a good year for A&B & their labels. Group Therapy 150 was a particular highlight with tracks from that on this.
Cant wait. ;)
Thank you A&B.
