Sied van Riel Presents Rielism Volume Four (2017)
As a regular visitor of the greatest review website in the world (voted as number 1 by my mother) you have seen over the years my dedication towards specific artists, artists who deserve not only the biggest stages in the world, but a Knighthood/Damehood. One of these artists is Sied van Riel. A huge fan I am, and am proud to be part of the Rielly fans. Since I discovered him many years ago, I have been attracted to his passion and dedication to showcase awesome Trance music to the world. It's only a pity that he doesn't come to London that often, rielly wish I could hear him play his music.
His album got reviewed before. But because I lost everything, I have to do it again. But that's no problem for me, seeing as I rate this album highly. So high, I consider it to be one of the greatest albums ever made! It will not be number 1 (that goes out to Sensation White 2002), but it's definately in the top 5. Every time I want to hear good music, I fall back towards this album. It never, and I do mean NEVER disappoints me.
Sied van Riel's fourth instalment contains so many underrated yet memorable Trance anthems, and they still remain excellent. Can't believe this album as rieliesed 2 years ago. And I still listen to certain tracks on a daily basis. That's insane. But, that's the power of Sied. The power of Rielism. And the power behind this well composed album.
Two discs of marvellous music. Couldn't wish for anything else. I've been happy since the day I received it. And I do love to share my enthusiasm for it. Hell, I walk around with my Rielism shirt, proud as a peacock. And whenever someone asks me which album they should purchase, it's always this one. Rielism Volume Four. A masterpiece, highly underrated.
Time for a tracklist. You've seen it before, and I've typed it before. But it still remains eyewateringly beautiful.

This mixed album doesn't take any prisoners. This is beyond anything I've heard in a long time. And it's fucking excellent! The quality is something we don't see that often, and even after about 2 years this album still sounds (and smells) fresh. Like it was only rieliesed yesterday. Which 2017 basically was. But the shameful thing is that you don't see these tracks appear a lot in mixes. When they really should. It's a shame.
An album which makes me feel SO emotional, is that genuinely possible? Yes, is the answer. I do feel so many things at the same time, and cannot hide my tears with some records. Powerful Trance music. Yes, some are just straight forward dark Trancey stuff, but some do take you to levels you haven't been to before. Heaven? Pff, higher than that! You are in God's seat! You are looking upon the masses. That's what this album does to me.
I shall break it down to two favourite records, seeing as there are two discs: on disc one I'm truly in love with three records, 'Avalon' by Nikolauss, 'Nyctophilia' by Steve Dekay and 'Elantria' by Omniks & Wonder Element. Judging the amount of plays I've got to give 'Avalon' the pole position. A wonderful record with literally everything perfect: it ticks all the boxes of being a timeless masterpiece.
The second disc on the album also has a few amazing records, the two I really liked the most are 'Heliopause' by Robert Nickson and 'Rivella' by Sied van Riel and Richard Durand. I can't pick, I simply can't pick. OK, 'Heliopause' it is. But closely followed by 'Rivella'.
One of the best mixed albums ever made. So damn great, would give it 6 out of 5 stars. But for now let's remain at 5, before we mess up the space-time continuum.
I wanted to add the whole playlist, but that has disappeared on Soundcloud. But it's worth it, trust me. Get this album RIGHT NOW if you want to experience Heaven on Earth.
