Very disappointing release from Armin. Where is the emotion? As others have said "Last Stop Before Heaven" is most definitely a standout and is true to trance. If vocal trance is your cup of tea, "Forever Is Ours" has a nice emotional breakdown but that's about it. The rest of the album is very much trouse with a hint of dubstep (yuck) in the title track. His previous album, Mirage, absolutely blows Intense away and Imagine is on a whole different level entirely.

i dont have words for this album, i only can say that armin looks tired of make amazing trance tunes, the only three powerful songs in this album are Last Stop Before Heaven,Who's Afraid Of 138?! and gaia-humming the lights in the itunes version, the other songs are sadly pop trance songs with vocals everywhere,
maybe he´s not had enought time for make quality trance tune, this is just bad,and sad

It's mind-boggling how bad this album really is, having thoroughly enjoyed his last few singles such as "Suddenly Summer," "I'll Listen," and "Nehalennia." In a way though, I can't say I'm too surprised. You see, a lot of these tracks represent the new era of trance; the stuff that top dogs like Orjan Nilsen, Ferry Corsten and saddly Markus Schulz are pumping out. It's basically all upbeat trouse, and I think that's why this album irritates me. I don't mind if an artist strays from their roots at some point or another. It's only natural to evolve, right? There are so many good artists out there right now, that choosing to ignore yet another one makes my job that much easier, but the problem is the fact that this is labeled trance. For the first time in many years, the industry needs to break down this one last genre for the narrow-minded club goers and finally label it as trouse. I don't want to find stuff like this anymore (along with Tiesto's and Deadmau5's garbage) in beatport's trance and progressive house sections. But enough of that now, as for this album, I can't say I enjoyed any track here. I was actually hoping that "Love Never Came" would've at least lived up to Richard Bedford's amazing vocals, but it didn't. I guess the God of trance should just stick to DJing for a little while.

Where do I begin with this one? Another frighteningly commercial generic release from AvB. This album's title is rather ironic, as it's anything but intense. You can expect yawn-worthy songs with lame pop vocals throughout (although Waiting For The Night is worth a listen I suppose, it has a charming pluck line and a nice rolling bass) all the way up until track 11, Last Stop Before Heaven, which is arguably the best track on the entire album, although that's not saying much, as the only other decent song on the album is Who's Afraid Of 138?!, though that one may only appeal to those that can appreciate a modern trance sound. Most of the tracks on this album were unlistenable to me, and stumbling upon Last Stop Before Heaven was like finding a diamond in a pile of rocks. However, hearing this track frustrated me, as it shows that Armin is still more than capable of putting out a good trance tune, he just chooses not to. I ripped these 2 songs to my computer and shelved the cd and don't think I'll listen to it again. If you're into trance, I'd suggest just getting Last Stop Before Heaven & Who's Afraid Of 138?! from Beatport and forgoing buying the entire album. If you're into commercial electro house, you may enjoy this one. Avoid it otherwise.
