Released in 2004, Tiësto's sophomore album came right as the wave of superstar DJs began to crest. He was awarded a Dutch royal order, toured Europe’s finest clubs in a decadent sweep chronicled on film, and became the first DJ to perform at the Olympic Games (“Adagio for Strings,” a trance reimagining of the Samuel Barber classic written for the opening ceremonies, blended classical with the ultramodern and was a hit worldwide). For the first time in a quarter century, an instrumental (the high-octane “Traffic”) dominated Top 40 radio in his home country. As a whole, the album captured the velocity of that era’s burgeoning club culture while foreshadowing dance music’s imminent takeover.
