Tiesto - Elements of Life Remixed
Tiësto, as his PR people never fail to remind us, is the biggest DJ in the world, so this remixed version of his 2007 album was more than likely conceived as a surefire money-spinner. Having not heard Elements of Life, I can't comment on how far these takes deviate from the originals; although none wander far outside the boundaries of trance. It's Euro-vocal cheesy at times, but the likes of Ten Seconds Before Sunrise and Everything, remixed by First State and Cosmic Gate respectively, deliver dancefloor heat in spades, while Carpe Noctum (Fire Element mix) could be mistaken for Booka Shade (a good thing, obviously). A money-spinner then, but Tiësto fans probably won't feel short-changed.
