Part 1 is one of those rare tracks which, despite listening to it dozens of times, can still give me shivers. The climax is otherworldly - takes a lot of time to get there, but once the piano is introduced it is one of the most beautiful tracks in the entire genre - for me, at least. Excellent sound design and arrangement; feels like a well-crafted piece of music rather than "just" a great track.


Part 2 is brilliant in its own way, however Part 1 is the absolute highlight of the release.

Magnificent, although wished it was a trancer 4x4 tbh
I do not think it would benefit from a 4x4 beat as it would not be any more powerful or interesting; some riffs and melodies wouldn't work and the arrangement would need a lot of work to fit. Besides, it's absolutely magical for me exactly as it is.

I'm quite surprised though. Wonder why you wished that, care to explain? Is it just the kick pattern or would you change something else as well?

The melodies are perfect. A 4/4 arrangement would indeed take it to another level, but still keep the breaks intro and outro sections.
