Whatever else Tiesto does, musically speaking 'Suburban Train' will always mark the pinnacle of his career and for many clubbers this will remain one of the greatest tracks ever.

In truth this probably owes a lot to 'ICE 794' by HH (aka Hardy Heller) but improves on that record by introducing a standard of production that left all others floundering in its wake.

The 'Original Mix' is not unlike a train journey itself, all be it one that knows no bounds. It starts off with tight kick beats and an off beat bass line with brassy synth stabs resembling a train starting off and gains momentum. Even Richie Hawtin was impressed with this intro when he reviewed it in DJ Magazine. The track picks up edgy electroised synth licks before the emergence of lush pads up to the first breakdown, and what an enormous breakdown it is. At this point, this particular train lifts itself off the man made rail tracks it has been industriously travelling upon and instead glides up to the heavens into the beautiful unknown. The result is a massive breakdown off such emotional intensity that it would reduce even the most hardened football hooligan to tears! The track then picks up again, as the train seems to perform a gracefull landing on some more train tracks, albeit still glidding along upto the heavens, and storms off at full pelt with the added urgency of even more emotive melodies until the second smaller breakdown. The track then draws to a close by stripping back as the train reaches its destination with all passengers suitably refreshed for the challenges that lie ahead.

Since this record was released, its reputation has continued to grow and must surely stake a claim as one of the greatest trance records of all time.
