Análisis - Product Description :
2000 two CD release, the third album from the Grammy-winning DJ and producer.
Análisis - :
Paul van Dyk spent most of the '90s perfecting a strain of credible, melodic Eurotrance that connected with clubbers all over the globe. Having honed his style and established a trademark sound, the East German DJ brings it all together on this, an album the overzealous are calling the first great dance record of the century. It begins in fine fashion with the cool breakbeat shimmer of "Vegas," swiftly followed by "Pikes," a valve-pumping Ibizan knees-up that's a tribute to the island's fabled hotel. So far, so good--this is topnotch progressive house that's guaranteed to make them move. However, if you're expecting more of the same, beware, because from here on in it's out with the Glo-Sticks and on with the face paint as a succession of clichéd trance anthems rudely gatecrash the party. From the lunar-landings vibe of "Avenue" through to the sweet pop lilt of "Face to Face," hypnotic riffs, sanguine chords, and hollow metronome beats take center stage. Van Dyk's no ATB, but ultimately this is just as one-dimensional. --Paul Tierney

- pure pvd

OK, OK...first things first. While some dour, pessimistic, and hopelessly tragic people out there may have declared the popularity of trance as its death knell--with all the trashy, same-y comps littering the record store shelves this summer with last years' ibiza holdovers and 'updated' remixes of four year old songs--you MAY be inclined to believe it. BUT I BEG YOU, DON'T DESPAIR...

Out There And Back is truly the trance record that Paul Van Dyk had to make, and one not only the trance, but the dance community across the globe, will thank him for. While some DJ/producers batter the same themes over and over until they decide to run it into the ground only to annoy us with their 'new', 'different' direction (BT are you listening?), PVD improves on his entire back catelog and makes music that is truly progressive on the dancefloor and off.

'Vega' is a welcome starter, echoing Paul's fantastic new-ish fascination with breakbeats as a set-starter ala his oft-included Starecase track 'First-Floor Deadlock'. The beats on this track are a perfect intro; a welcome change from most albums' tendency to begin with some murky synth nonsense. From then on in, Out There and Back starts like an album progresses like a live set, not a collection of singles. Songs like 'Pikes' contain so many hooks and such crafted care that you swear it truly isn't possible for dance music to do all this. Perhaps the nicest treat is the fact that PVD newly remixed his three previosuly released singles, 'Another Way', 'Avenue', and "Tell Me Why (The Riddle)' espescially for the LP. These new versions mean that those who previously bought the singles get new versions of all tracks, all blended together in a seamless triple threat of power and grace. From there on in, get ready for the true PVD experience as he unleashes the prime time, soon-to-be anthems, four-on-the-floorfillers that anyone who has witnessed Paul live will truly enjoy and want to repeat ASAP. 'The Love From Above' and 'Columbia' are just amazing, pure and simple. Honed and headed straight for your solar plexus, these tunes just demonstrate that you don't always need chemicals or even a club to appreciate the creme de la creme of dance music. And as if that wasn't enough, the album ends with 'Alive', a song PVD has been playing on his US/UK tour lately and sounds like an anthem you've heard a thousand times while still seeming like it came from a daydream from 3012. The vocal and the hook summarize the-heart-in-your-throat beauty and power that PVD closes his sets with. It couldn't end any better than this.

This album is a mandate for the dance community. It pulls no punches, yet it doesn't pretend to be something obscure or different due to the tastemakers' disdain for current popular trends. Instead, it just makes plain that Paul Van Dyk is working at the peak of his powers and that is something we can be thankful for from the dancefloor to the freeways, out there and back.

- I must be too old...

This CD set would be perfect in only one of two situations. 1) You want to throw a party and you need a premixed CD with the loops built in, or 2)you listen to the first CD (since the second is remixes and a video) two songs at a time, leaving at least a day in between sittings. Sure, the melodies are nice, gentle and listenable - but they only last a few bars apiece, and are repeated ad nauseum over the same four-on-the-floor beat. No subtlety, no variance, just establish beat, cue in effects, and bliss out to the melody of the minute. That makes a song here. I must be getting old. I guess too much past 30, and the "ten songs looped together as one" concept just looses its appeal. Not that there aren't moments, mind you - but after five straight songs, they all just blend together and kinda get to sounding the same. Maybe that's the point?

- Close to Heaven

I go out and dance to this kinda stuff so much that I hardly ever play this music at home. But PvD is like a Berlin god to me -- he's had me floating so many times in German clubs. And now he has made a CD to enjoy away from the dance floor too. It's dreamy and hopeful and uplifting. Strange little zig zags of sound sneak out of the mix and make you dream. It will take you that close to a Berlin night out, and even closer to heaven.

- Some great progressive and club trance!!

Paul Van Dyk's style can be summed up in one word, simple. But simplicity doesn't equal a bad thing, in fact, it makes the experience more enjoyable. Some criticts have said that Van Dyk's latest album (OTAB) is unoriginal and brings nothing new to the trance genre, but heck if it sounds good and gets you dancing then there's no problem.

His songs have perfect build-up and direction, and aren't too hectic. And the chords in the background while repetitve, really get you into a TRANCE.

CD-1 starts out w/ "vega". A dark tone song that starts out slow but eventually progresses to a nice backbeat that leads into "pikes". Next is a great club song "Another Way" that really has a liquid trance feel to it. tracks 4 and 5 are decent but nothing special. Things get interesting again w/ the slow progression of "Tell me why" and stay mellow through "Face to Face" until you get to "The love from above" which is more upbeat. Fav. track on cd-1 though is def. "out there and back." it has perfect build up and a great finale that just makes you want to reminds me of Carnival in Brazil.

CD-2 Has mostly different remixes of the songs on cd-1. track 2 "all I need" has catchy tunes that'll get your foot tapping. And in my opinion "tell me why (club mix)" is better than on CD-1. really cd2 is just a bonus, 'cause cd1 is worth the price alone.

- You Will Be Floating...

6 stars! An extraordinary achievement, this... Pure endless trance, full of surprises, hidden pieces of melody, rapturous heights, dashes of sanguine ecstasy... I haven't heard a collection of trance better than this and it's all by one artist, not just another hit & miss dj comp. It's as though PvD has taken all his past accomplishments as a spinner and then a composer, and transformed them into this album's backdrop, then dipped even deeper to find huge washes of melody and killer beats. It's just terrific stuff throughout -- the trance revolution peaks right here. You will be floating....
