The first night I heard this album was on a Friday night in Los Angeles, calmly strolling down the narrow roads with my skateboard (similar to Tiesto-In Search of Sunrise). I'm pretty sure it was 'State of Mind' and instantly felt captivated by the gorgeous diva vocals and warm melodies. Definitely one of my favorite albums of all time, and songs too.
This was basically my very first electronic album I'd ever bought; it was worth every 10 dollars. I can't even begin to imagine how much elbow grease was put into it. The beats were absolutely incredible, and the addition of guest vocalist was a nice little touch. A classic in my books.
Damn, nostalgia nostalgia nostalgia. Ragnarok was basically my entire summer playlist of 2010, me blaring this in my cheesy home stereo at my old house, constantly listening to this on the way to the airport, and simply having so much fun listening to it. From the comical lyrics to the stylized guitar riffs to the hilarious guest vocalist battles to the tear-jerking ending 'None But the Brave' it grasped me, and pretty much made this a summer soundtrack for me.
This was a stellar album when I bought it at FYE in 2008, and today still is. Everything was good here, the guitar riffs, blistering vocals, aggressive yet playable basslines, and incredible production. This was my my 9th grade anthem back in 2010, and honestly, remains a perfect album in my eyes.
In Search of Sunrise 5: Los Angeles
I know that everyone loathes this guy (and in a way I do too), but his mixes are very rich and sublime. A lot of them have earthy, beautiful melodies and uplifting yet non cheesy vocals; and Tiesto's In Search of Sunrise 5: Los Angeles plays a positive role in this. Ironically, the very first time I plugged this in my ears was at sunset in LA in 2007, and I think I was walking along some boardwalk at the time. I was listening to 'Let Me Be', and almost instantaneously, it brought warmth to my heart. The simple vocals that came in effect later in the song was one thing, but the melody was what brought a smile to my face. It was nothing more than a synthesizer that gradually gained intensity (melody wise), and a few standard 'euphoric' vocals that altogether, made this my song of the night; and well, my album of the night
