I agree with everything that ckuskner wrote: "This track is laughably bad. The production is weak, totally dated and utterly boring. The so called melody is a simple synth sound playing just a few different notes along with an ultra corny chord progression. The drum programming is also very poor. It consists of a dry boring bass drum and an annoying "clicking sound". A lackluster and inferior Tiësto production."

Despite the sub par production of Tiesto here, Signum picks up where Tijs left out. Mirror (Signum Remix), perfects the track, by adding more effects to the sounds, better drums, and an overall dreamier flow to the song.

Mirror (HH's Convex Mix) goes progressive-ish here. Making the song into a long orgasm of musical joy.

This is without doubt. My favourite trance record of all time, togheter with Quadran feat Tasha - Love I Lost.

The original is the only one which is timeless. The Signum and HH remixes are not that good but still, good. They were anthems in the late 90's. But the original can be played forever without growing any age.

Everytime I hear it, I get this hardware-synthesizer feeling. I can just see how it was made and the different tones just pops up in my head like I was some equalizer.

I also get the space age feeling. Because the sound of the tune, the strings,melody,bassline etc. are beyond everything which is amazing in trance tunes.

Many say that Tiësto got help with this one. Infact someone say all his music are made by other people. Like Cor Fijneman, Geert Huinink and Alco Lammers. But nevertheless this tune is a masterpiece so in the lenght, it doesn't really matter who made it.

I'm very glad that I finally got this one on vinyl, because as said, it will never get old in my body or soul.
