REVIEW: Alan Morris & Marco Cera - Tears Of The Sun incl. Uplifting mix out on ASOT recordings

A sterling example of how beautiful music can be, 'Tears Of The Sun' is without doubt one of the most emotional offerings on the A State Of Trance label to date. Crafted up by Alan Morris and Marco Cera, this cut is sure to fully entrance its listeners, either through its original version or the uplifting mix. As soul-soothing as it is melancholic, this tune knows no equal.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Alan Morris and Marco Cera collaborate for a very emotional and truly stunning record called Tears Of The Sun. The original version is a magnificent proglifting trancer with electro grooves, pulsating basslines and pumping drums along with Ibiza style synthy progression that travel your mind to magical places. The breakdown is characterised from the guitar like synthy riff that has certain melancholy and sadness. The climax is tripping out and perfect to carry you away to majestic dimensions beyond reality. This is an example of how good and inspirational can be trance music. The Uplifting Mix transforms the original into the full on Ibiza friendly uplifting trancer with solid driving basslines, pounding grooves, and feel good electronic melodies. The breakdown starts atmospheric and cinematic with the main guitar riff coming to the surface to deliver goosebumps and shivers from head to toe. The climax is full on epic hands in the air  with tsunami of emotional swirling synths along with that melancholic melody to keep you grounded while you fly away on any trancefloor. This is what I call Trance! #PureGold Love IT [/content]
