Haha yeah I remember you being harsh, and I remember than even though City of the Iris is a nod back to his Save Me sound, and even though I liked it, I sort of thought he's had better stuff in these years. Still, a nice track.
Hindsight is 20/20.
There's nothing particularly wrong with The Unfinished, though I imagine a Beatport sample for this would be boring. The lack of melodies can also be a turn-off. From this track you can tell Airwave excels at creating "journeys" with his tracks and at tight sound designs. I also like the little tech-y synth that he introduces a couple of minutes in.
City of the Iris feels like a collab between '90s Oliver Lieb and modern Airwave. The lead synth reminds me of L.S.G. - Hearts, and the tech-y sound reminds me of L.S.G. - Netherworld, but everything else is all Airwave.
