    Blue Fear is a fantastic track by Armin. The track has a lot of elements coming together in a very disorienting and trippy way. The epic sounding melody then develops over a much different pattern layer. Very trippy. Unfortunately, Armin's interest in producing trance was very short lived and he switched to cheesy stuff immediately.

    If you like this, you would probably like the works of Moogwai on Platipus records. Maybe a bit more advanced, but similar experience. I especially suggest Viola.

      First bomb of Armin Van Buuren. so many years have passed since this masterpiece that made it famous in the world,
      no one will forget it !
      On an original melody, Armin launches a beautiful trancey tablecloth, emotional and delicate, scented with the magical scent of the romantic electronic sound.
      A single that went around the world !
      Greetings from France !

        Awesome EP. the three songs are amazing, the three tunes have powerfull sounds, cool bases, that means that has a amazing production made by Armin,
        like the majority of the people my favorite tune is Blue Fear,first because was one of my first trance tunes that I heard,in the early days, also has a beautifull and hypnotic melody with a lot of new sounds for that time.

          Armin van Buuren mentioned in an interview that "X Marks The Spot" was the actual A-Side for this EP but that Johan Cyber saw more potential in "Blue Fear" decided to put that on the A-Side. All the tracks have a quite simplistic production style and there weren't much effects or extravagance, just basic driving tracks that were good tools in a trance jocks arsenal.

          "Blue Fear" is the epic track of the bunch with its distinctive high pitched lead, "X Marks the Spot" is a much clever production melodically and uses the sounds better and with its driving rhythm, is well suited as a mid set builder. "Archae From Space" is the one trace of van Buuren's earlier House productions and it's basically a "Greece 2000"-influenced remix of "X Marks The Spot". Most of the melodics are dropped and it keeps a couple and focuses on the rhythm and the bassline.
