So there you have it. This week I didn’t rate the songs either. While most of them are great tracks, some of them I wouldn’t agree with. However, if the Top 20 has taught me anything, it’s that my opinions differ slightly from the majority.

Also, I don’t like end of year mixes. Now some may love it because we get to sample all of the (arguably) best tracks of the year, I’d rather have this episode in 4 parts to accommodate all the tracks. But that’s just me.

The normal 5* rating system will continue from the next episode onwards.

PS: The links for the last episode were a one off. All of you should know where to get these episodes from. However should anyone require an HTTP d/l link, I’ll provide them cos some places have p2p restrictions 😉

PPS: It was on Facebook so… Also, he’ll be performing at the Peppermint Club on 5th Feb next year!

    @lapapillion that facebook link I posted in the PPS for megaupload doesn’t work?

    And after the cable cuts, I’m not surprised many people can’t get their p2p connections to work. I use NZBs for most of my stuff 😉

    If this is the same as the Armin Van Buuren Year Mix 2008 (the 2CD one), then it’s the best trance session I’ve ever heard. My favorite trance track is La Guitarra so maybe I’m being a little biased since the session kinda kicks off with that track.

    On long journeys trance tracks are the best, the roads and everything around you which passes by simply becomes your visualization to the song. awesome!!

    Nice blog though,

    Glad you liked the blog ^^. And yes, I enjoy trance best on the highways too. But sometimes I find it a little dangerous, tracks like You Never Said make me wanna floor it, weaving in and out of traffic :p
