Quality production again by Airwave. Kinda lacks a main theme IMO. Still decent enough.

Here is the full version
It sounds like something you might hear in the background but not something I would go and buy and looking back say 2 or 3 years, saying that oh I remember that track. It lacks inspiration where I am not really connecting with the track at all.

Sounds like something he has already done before. Agree with your sentiments there Progrez. We're used to a much higher standard from him.

The production is top notch as always, but there's nothing memorable about it unfortunately. As said before, it's a track I would put on in the background, but nothing more than that.

Yeah, not too exciting unfortunately. Airwave kinda slipped of my radar ever since he changed styles and this is another example why. It's not a bad track by any means, just completely unmemorable.

The production is so good, each element is joy for the ears, it just needs some emotion or story to bring it life, or form some sort of journey that takes me places. Honestly love the percussion work though.

Its a bit much when JOOF calls it a "masterpiece".

The irony when theres been more work laid to create these descriptive "this is the new masterpiece" texts than the actual music. Someone else noticed this? Been a think now for years.

Think if you got a wall of text back in the day with you vinyl :D

Same boring style Airwave had for a long time

J00f are ultra boring (uhm sorry, "deep") no wonder they 'love' it

Agree with most of the sentiments here. A very fine production, but the melodic side is lacking, which sounds way too similar to Reset, one of the few tracks from him in the modern era that i have enjoyed.

That's most of post-Parallel Lines Airwave in a nutshell.

What?... He's got a bunch of fucking sweet music post 2012, what you on about.
Notice I said most. He did release Cathedrals of Hope and a couple of other cool tracks, but much of what he did after Parallel Lines is the same atmospheric/cinematic/progressive stuff that gets stale really quickly.
