I hope you know that he started with trance... ;)
I heard he started with the name Quazar too, and that he did the music of the game Worms also. I don't know if it's fake informations or not :?

Well techically Mr. Angello is def not overrated... it really depends on the evening...

I personally hope he comes a little bit back to his (tribal) roots...

I'm not attacking you guys in any way, but just trying to figure out why people who like him at the moment do like him. What impresses you about his sets? I've been flabbergasted by his repeated setlists for years now, and the fact that he puts out of key acapellas over random tracks then plays with them like a kid really doesn't help. Don't even get me started on his new tracks. :lol:

I think Angello is in no way overrated... Granted, he does produce so many tracks that some of them are average at best, and I know he tends to repeat himself on his live gigs... but hey, he's put out some A-class material. His double CD 'Sizeism' is simply phenomenal...
