What makes a trance classic? For some, angelic vocals surrounded by cascading synths are mandatory. For others, classical arrangements punctuated by stabbing basslines are essential. Whatever, chances are pretty good it's here. On board are BT, Darude, Moby, Energy 52, ATB, Grace, Paul van Dyk, Kernkraft 400, Nalin & Kane, System F, Binary Finary, and Chicane, among others. Of course, at two discs, Trance Classics can't possibly include every classic within the genre (perhaps Lustral's "Everytime" will make it to the next volume). One essential set.—MP
