Above & Beyond's debut is a celestial accolade of trance. Most of the songs in this were released as singles, fortunately.
According to Wikipedia:
There are a number of areas in the 48 contiguous United States known informally as tri-state areas. Often, a tri-state area is an area associated with a particular town or metropolis that lies across three states. Some, but not all, of these involve a state boundary tripoint. This great namesake is fluid in definition.
This is purely deiform. Tri-State is one of the few albums to get a remix LP.

In this case, the title track is also the opener. This instrumental was not released as a single. As is the case with every song in this, Tri-State is ephemeral. Four minutes of panthalassic piano and vocals are great to name the album after, and open.

Stealing Time

This full-length song is completely deserving of it's acoustic mix, which is better than can be said for some. Richard Bedford's exquisite vocal mastery and the slow pace of the tune itself, alongside emotive declensions, make this an unmissable emotional rampage.

World on Fire

This is more caliginous than the preceding. With more bass, three different kinds of vocal cuts, and a bonus tune from halfway in, this is as stupendous as the rest of this accolade.

Air For Life

Air For Life has nice stretches of electrotrash, interspersed with a brumal tune not unworthy of all the acclaim. In the climax, the electrotrash participates in making this more splendorous. Carrie Skipper contributes her most in her vocalisations. This is progressive trance at a supernal level.

Can't Sleep

It is no surprise that this was so remixed. It is the sublimest of pleasures. The dolour is so perfectly handled! This in no way can have too much praise. I can barely see for all the tears. This completely merits its acoustic mix. Fervent brume, asperous raylessness... this is the acme.
