Doesn't really go anywhere. It's ok stylistically but not much more than that. The vocals annoy me as well, it seems like she's deliberately singing with half the intensity but tries to make it sound she's singing with full intensity, if that makes sense. I can't really write anything constructive about the vocals, they just sound really bad to me, they seem amateurish and the vocalist talentless even. The SEO title is also a bit laughable.

I sign here. While doing songs, Rob prefers to go his own way and your style rather than develop. If this is what his third album is going to look like, I don't see much for prom. Let my recipe release songs with energy on other labels such as FSOE, VANDIT, ASOT or Pure Trance or GO Music.

EDIT: Thread update.

Awful vocals with no dub version avalible. To underground for the avarage trance listener and to fucking cheese for someone who listens to real trance.

Normally I'm a fan of subdued vocals, but I agree here they don't work that well. It feels like Shannon is actively forcing herself to sound subdued while also trying to put some energy into it. I wish we'd get a dub as the instrumental is rather nice and clean. Love those little acids and the stabs in the lead
