Yes it is. I made a rip and I already heard it few times. What I love about the track is the melody in the breakdown, its sooo refreshing and cool. But after that...the track ends...I would much prefer if the melody return at some point, but no, it will not....

sooo, it had a huge potential for me, but im slightly dissapointed how short the melody is in this track and it will never return. Still this can be a solid 7/10 from me...but we will see...

Amazing?

I think its a rather ugly melody, and im tired of the tonality of m&ms synths. Saying that in the most sensible way unfortunaly. Apart from that can just say its decent. Expeceted more/something else.

Actually thats what I was hoping for to when I listened to this sample!
I only heard the radio rip, there is a slight chance that the final version will be different...but a pretty small chance...

I know that many people are upset that the climax is flat, but I for one yearn for more tracks that are not afraid to go away from the big climax. Trance back in the day was all about variety and having tracks with pure drive and no drop should not be seen as a bad thing.
The buildup and the melody take the cake though, all those acids and synths are really fantastic.

The breakdown does sound sweet. Waiting to hear a full track.

Surprised to see Armin have this as a the weeks best track, didn't know he played stuff like this anymore. Happy that it's the case and this track is getting exposure.
