A great album made better
Considering the quality of the original Imagine album, i was skeptical when i first heard of this being released even with the quality of names involved (Cosmic Gate, First State, The Blizzard, Omnia, the list goes on...) I was doubtful there was any song on the album that could be significantly improved, considering just how good Armin is. However, after a couple of listens through the entire album, I cannot believe i doubted this would be a brilliant album.
Almost every song has been improved and I would say given the choice, I would prefer to listen to this album than the original. A few of the highlights include the First State remix of Unforgivable (best track on the album and one of the tunes of last year), Paul Miller's remix of Imagine and Never Say Never by Myon and Shane 54. There is only one song that I feel doesn't quite hit the spot, and that is the W&W mix of Rain, but that was always my least favourite song on the original album and the Cosmic Gate remix on this album is immense, so its a minor gripe really.
To sum up, a sensational album and one definitely worth forking out for.
