I have strange trance tastes, but even then the words "Tiesto" and "Paul van Dyk" seems to be there a suprising number of times. As for psy/goa produced till around 2004 its imho the purest form of trance around, so to be honest it isn't another genre really. And umm you have Airwave on this...which I won't consider top 100. Some general recomendations are...

Sasha - Xpander (this one definitely makes any top trance tracks list)
Dance 2 Trance - We Came in Peace
Balil - Parasight
Quench - Dreams
Sasha - Wavy Gravy
Orbital - Remind
Choice - Acid Eiffel
Aphex Twin - Didgeridoo (this isn't exactly trance but its very trancish)
LSG - Netherworld
Nathan Fake - The Sky was Pink (James Holden Remix)
Resistance D - Human
Resistance D - Cosmic Love
The Orb - Little Fluffy Clouds
Hardfloor - Acperience 1
Darude - Sandstorm (this one seems close to your tastes)
Solar Quest - Acid Air Raid

Its a good idea of have a "looked through tracks" list at the end so anyone reading this knows what you've already heard and passed judgement on.

Lastly, if you do reverse your opinion on psy/goa, lemme know. I'll be glad to give a ton of suggestions =] Though I notice BPC and MWNN on the list.

Didgeridoo is Acid Trance

It's disappointing yet wholly predictable to see lists like this, and I suppose I can't blame you as everyone has their "entrance stage". Here are some songs that will show you some diversity within the genre:

Art of Trance - Deeper Than Deep
The Light - Panfried (Mind Over Matter Mix)
L.S.G. - Netherworld
James Holden - Nothing (93 Returning Mix)
Resistance D - Cosmic Love
Solar Quest - Acid Nation

Thanks for the recommendations. I will add Xpander and Nothing (93 Returning Mix) since they were on my add list anyway. I will check out the ones I haven't heard.
I've seen Little Fluffy Clouds on several lists and considered it for a high place on this one as well, but I don't really think it's a trance track so I won't add it.
A "looked through" list is a good idea. I'll work on it if I have time.

Pretty decent list. But not complete until you add
Enmass - CQ

Nice list but... where is:

Humate - Love Simulation (PVD mix)
Robert Nickson - Spiral
Armin - Burned with desire
Above & Beyond pres. Tranquility Base - Surrender
ATB - 9 PM
