Sounds pretty cool. The main part I mean. I don't think the melody is Gouryella-level though. It's pretty basic and predictable.

And all other elements don't sound Ferry at all. The beats, bass, lack of FX/layers. A bit too empty.

If it's a Gouryella track, then it's a forgettable one, despite the nice synth sound.

Haha it worked once... Somebody figured out it might work again.

I agree, too simple. But don't even care about whether or not it's Gouryella. Not a fan of the track.

The melody is quite nice, but very Anahera-like...and some notes are sameish like Neba.

Does Durand not want the "OMG is this the new Gouryella" hype??

Durand is releasing way too much stuff.
Like many trance producers really.

I keep dreaming about the days where they would just go for 1 amazing track in a whole year. Maybe a second one, or a remix.

Armin is the worst of course. He releases like 40 songs in a year 🥹

TBF it helps when you have a team working behind you in the studio....

Not way too much, just the wrong things.

Where's Insolidus and The Sacred Vine?! *grumpy*
Really disappointed, unfinished tracks (Insolidus) should never be included on albums, why get hopes up even though they probably intended to use it as an intro track at that time initially (as it wasn't finished then I'm guessing) as if he'd collab with Geert just to produce an outro track?? really annoyed that it wasn't included on Reactivate 2022 album either.

All hope has been lost.
