The new Insomania track is the first track in so many years that actually sounds superb from Tiesto! Great vocal progressive house!

Shocked to come in here after a few years to see how commercial this guy has become. Just a bunch of complete wank of electro big room house and dance pop. He has become washed up and flushed out so it is sad to see an artist like Tiesto do whatever he can to maintain in the game by leaving his old fan base and produce commercial dance-pop hits for 12 year olds.
sad sad sad.. But that is the price of going to the top. You have to come down at one point.

SO much salt in this comments section. Yeah I get it, the main consensus is that Tiesto's music has been declining since the turn of the decade, and I generally agree with that. Everyone thinks that pestering him over and over about making trance again will actually get him to make trance again. But no, that will never work. So get over it; stop wishing for nostalgia that will never come. Choosing to follow the trends isn't a bad thing at all. If you hate his new stuff just listen to his old stuff.

Used to make some incredible House and Trance music. Contemporarily, not terrible. It's no secret that his shift from Trance to Big Room House caused a noticeable drop in quality. However, while I'm not a large fan of big room house, his most recent works aren't terrible, just don't expect something far from the easily monetized generic music you'd find on Spinnin Records.

Definitely give some of his older works a listen. If you're a fan of big room house, his newer stuff may interest you.

It's no secret that this guy's output has gone to utter and complete shite in the last ten or so years, as he produces one by-numbers bag of wank remix after the next.

In my view, he started to lose it during/after 'Elements of Life', which featured a sprinkling of vocal belters from usual suspects Jes and Christian Burns, but had little else to offer.

His latest opus was a festering turd of an offering that has no business being played in your crib or in your car.

I remember hearing 'Suburban Train' for the first time, on a dancefloor chocker with Ellesmere Port pill 'eds. Shirtless, off their tits, hugging one another. Ciggies and glosticks on the go. 'We're breaking through the clouds again', they roared, in a Scouse lilt. It was a magical, mind-bending experience.

The album from which that track was called, 'Close to You' is one of my faves of the trance genre, contrasting moody atmospheric numbers with roof-raisers such as '643 (Love's On Fire)', (as featured some serious diva vox from Club 69 alumna Suzanne Palmer).

I don't get why 'Adagio for Strings' is so lauded. As someone else rightly pointed out, this variety of of teeny-bopper, underage-disco cheddar had started to lose its cool by the beginning of 2003. Our friend Tiesto was simply piggybacking onto the success of the Orbit/Corsten collaboration, which was vastly superior.

Remix-wise, it's true that he gave us 'Silence' by Delerium. However, don't forget that Fade laid down the blueprint for the Tiesto retake care of their dramatic, proggy epic rendition. And credit where it's due, 'Flesh' by Jan Johnston. But i'm being generous here.

And don't get me started on the tracks with BT. What is it with groundbreaking producers who insist on warbling all over their own tracks? BT does it. Moby does it. At least Tiesto hasn't subjected us to that particular delight, as yet. Though no doubt something highly shitty and self-indulgent is in the pipeline.

I have no words on the subject of his recent ill-advised collab with syrupy crooner John Legend. Check it out for yourself. I would rather listen to someone pushing out a noisome and miasmatic shit the morning after a serious curry, than hear that again. It would be more tuneful. And more creative.

With each album exponentially worse than the last, it's been a serious downward spiral in quality for our Tijs.

The mighty have fallen and been rewarded handsomely for mediocrity. For shame.

Haha, what is all this whining of his fanboys? And now ranting and cursing around about him because he...."changed".
Yes, I also liked tracks and mix-CDs. But when he changed, I didn't give a f...ish and moved on myself! There are so many good producers and DJs out there, I don't care if he changed or not.
All of you grumbling and accusing his "betrayal", get over the fact that your hero doesn't want to be your hero any more - or the hero for others :-D

The biggest twat ever existed in the electronic music scene! Everything he "made" became successful thanks to his all-time producer Waakop Reijers. Tiesto is just an idolistic brand. Waakop produces the "music", and Tijs presents it to the crowd, the money comes, and worth for everyone. THAT'S ALL.
This whole marketing machine became definitely ugly after the Kaleidoscope album in 2009, but even that was better than any rubbish crap they do nowdays. Tracks after tracks are coming in tons like a factory, quantity definitely took the place of quality.
Tiesto have always been just a hand of smelly poop packed in a fancy box, nothing else.
