Armin, take some lsd, it will help

Armin was one of the biggest legends in the world of the electronic music, but now he changed his style because he wants to appeal the new kids and the new sounds of electronic music. Since his first productions to 'Intense', his 5th album, he was doing good things (Yeah, I know that 'Mirage' or 'Imagine' are kinda poppy, but both are good albums). Then he started to incorporate a lot of Big Room Trance sounds to his productions and sounding more a more boring and commercial. But he's smart and he knows that his truly public is the trance family, so now he's working on his 6th album (he says that it will be a comeback to his roots), and at the same time he's working on his first album of GAIA with Benno de Goeij, and he released a new song of Rising Star. With the time we will see if he's coming back or it was something temporary.

And another so called DJ that has the urge to change its roots from good to bad music ( commercial ones that the mass like without even apreciate it anymore ! ) .

Yes Mr. Armin van Buuren as Dj Tiesto and Paul Oakenfold those so called DJ's who's nowadays ruins the nice great times of what real music was such as ( Techno, Rave, Trance, Acid, House, Drum&Bass ,...) . Nowadays we need to listen to cheesy boring music and that RnB over and over and as if it isn't enough we need to hurt our ears with sad music from those reality TV shows another commercialisation !

Where are all those famous clubs alot of them disapeared ' sadly '
Where are all those famous DJ's you could talk with them , watch them closely ( nowadays those clowns such as David Guetta, Armin, Tiesto, etc.. Need silly body guards ) how sad
Where are all those Record Stores you could stay whole afternoons listening to records and even have the chance to see a dj enter the store WOOW ! ( nowadays we have this ITunes stuff who's so cold and without emotions so anti-social ) again so sad !
Where are all those people who enjoyed real music ' any styles ' ? ( nowadays alot people are deaf ) sighs ....
.... I hope a day again all will be magic as before !!!

thank you armin for many GREAT productions like:
Armin vs. M.I.K.E. - pound,Armin vs. M.I.K.E. - intruder,Armin van Buuren - control freak,Armin van Buuren - blue fear, Perpetous Dreamer - the sound of goodbye. He was always much more better producer than Tiesto! now it's the same situation! Tiesto now makes extremely crappy electro-house,Armin Now Makes only crappy pop-house: )

Armin now seems unable to make anything without Benno de Goeij (even his gaia project)... yeah that's right.
i think that this is the third year since the beginning of their collaborations. i actually liked Armin's productions before that.
i don't know what happened or for how long he will continue making tracks like that, but i don't like a producer to have someone write his music for him.

Armin van Buuren. The tiesto clone? Offcourse he's going up in the slipstream of dj Tiesto. And he is not afraid to break some commercial stuff to our earholes.
Slowly but steady he is turning more and more commercial.
The latest in his effort to make more and more money (how much is enough) he is now turning to you. Yes you.
He is coming after you if you dear to download his music. Yes you read it right: he and his record company wants to sue people if you download his music. Through his record company Armada Music he is ready to sue you if you download (!) his music.
As if he is not rich enough.
Very strange because his succes as a dj is also generated through internet and the internet community. If it wasn't for internet and we the music lovers he was next to nothing in the music industry. So he should be very grateful for us the music lovers and internet.
But no he's going to sue you.
Thanks a lot "music lover".
Watch your wallet. Armin van Buuren is in the house.

Number 3 in the world according to mixmag, the guy has to be doing something right.

I was dubious when i first decided to listen to Armin. Being of a strong disposition to harder styles of trance and tracks with more tech or acid influence, it was an exercise in open-mindedness to sit down and actually listen to his tracks. Blue Fear was my first exposure to him, which i enjoyed alot. However, i didn't really become enthralled with any of his music until I heard his live stuff. His "A State of Trance" radio show really shows you his talents. Thats a two hour set every week, with some sweet track selections that have influenced the trance vinyl going into my crate over the past two years. His style is consistent through his sets; emulating the old Tiesto & Ferry Corsten sound with a softer edge, while still adding that elusive elemnt that can only be attributed to Armin himself.

I'm going to keep my eye on this guy, I don't know enough about him yet, but i haven't heard anything negative. Let's hope he carves his own niche without turning into an Oakenfold.
