 [item value="10"]John O'Callaghan & Clare Stagg - Lies Cost Nothing[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]When John O'Callaghan comes out from the studio you expect something truly huge and this is the case with his latest uplifting vocal trance anthem Lies Cost Nothing featuring Clare Stagg who has worked previously with Rich Solarstone. The track is straight forward powerful uplifting trance cracker with the right ingredients in the right amount enough to cause mayhem and drive all the vocal trance fans higher than the skies. As always Claire stands out with her unusual performance that is deeper and not what you usually get in vocal trance tracks. The quality of the vocal and the meaningful lyrics merged with outstanding synths, great romantic piano melodic, cinematic strings and big euphoric themes that carry you away from reality  until you have been totally immersed in its world and you become participant in the beautiful story that Claire sings about and John has produced so perfectly. The chill out mix is the perfect after clubbing anthem that actually can make you appreciate even more the original. #PureGold Love It[/content]
