In my opinion, the best trance track of the 2000s. Back from a time when trance was still trance. Oh how i wish i could go back to those years. We will never get to experience tracks like this again sadly.

When people look back on the decade that was the 2000s, they will see that 2004 was the greatest of those years in trance. Among dozens of other reasons for this, The Whiteroom is one phenomenal track and has already established itself as a classic born out of that year.

To me, this track is the greatest hybrid of the stellar ambience of psytrance and the build-up/breakdown structure of progressive to date. A simple enough bassline plods along and its repetition is present enough to put you in a trance, but made subtle enough by all the other different elements that you maintain interest. Hypnotic, indistinguishable vocals, by 2004 already a legendary trademark of Andy Moor, are scattered tastefully throughout those nine, blissful minutes. Yet, they are such a massive component of The Whiteroom's overall force, keeping the listener in a constant of suspense and chills. I say this out of respect for the notion that, somehow, all trance releases are supposed to give listeners goosebumps, which has surely become a bastardized cliche by this point. No, something about The Whiteroom simple justifies that old adage about trance music, they way it manages execute impeccable timing, knowing when and where to bring in new elements, while removing others.

Seven minutes inward, as the song's ever genuine build-up culminates to one steep climax, a much anticipated breakdown strikes and, even after the full-blown impact is delivered, the ambience is never lost, but rather grows. The vocals become intense and are backdropped by an utmost spooky melody played on the leads. I'll leave the rest to the reader's imagination.

Absolutely stunning.
