AllMusic Review by

Part three of the In Search of Sunrise series is an enjoyable assortment of gently paced nightlife trance. Finishing the mix from Panama, DJ Tiësto is once again fond of the slow buildup approach, delaying the first danceable moment for a few songs in, and creates an inviting atmosphere of festival-friendly dance and restful tidal melodies. Highlights include World Clique's staggered, snaking "Don't Do It," Starecase's reminiscently '80s track "Faith," and the climatic old-fashioned trance troika of Way out West, Nalin & Kane, and Jericho. The welcome return of Solar Stone is sure to turn heads as well, but their reappearance sags a bit and uncomfortably reminds one just how much of In Search of Sunrise, Vol. 3, in spite of bettering its predecessors, owes its existence to 1999's Seven Cities.
