Trance Paradise 10th Anniversary – Hime Trance 4

Hime Trance 4
Release Date: 1/27/10
Price: 1886 yen

Well, here we are at the end of an era. After the release of Anime*Mix in January of ’09, all was quiet on the Hime Trance front until EMI’s surprise decision to finally release Hime Trance 4 in 2010. Keep in mind that Hime Trance 3 had been released in 2007. Was the wait worth it?

In a word, hell yeah. Okay, that was two words, but one wouldn’t have been able to describe my love for the album. Most of it came down to Delaction, who produced 4 new incredible songs for the album, but there’s a lot of awesomeness to be found overall, which you can read about in my review.

This marked the end of Trance Paradise, unfortunately, but at least it went out with a bang. I hope you guys had a fun time going down memory lane. If there’s any interest in a similar series on Mega Trance or Super Best Trance, let me know.

    I enjoyed reading the series! 🙂 Though I’m completely unfamiliar with Mega Trance or Super Best Trance, I like these looks at music trends of the past and the albums that defined them.

  2. Doc-S Says:

    This was the only Hime Trance I think I fully enjoyed.

  3. Komoguri Says:

    Trance Rave Best deserves a historic look back. It predates all these series and even outlasted them as well so it should be covered.

  4. Vincent Says:

    Personally I liked the Mega Trance series. Followed by the Trance Paradise series.

  5. DanceMaster Says:

    You make a really good point about Trance Rave, but I’m not as familiar with its history and the next big anniversary will be its 15th in 2016, so any retrospective will have to wait until then.

    Mega Trance has relatively few releases so I’ll probably cover that in October. I’m still not sure about Super Best Trance, though, because that has a crap-load of spin-off releases.
