So officially no Edge of Tomorrow and probably no Sunslip either. This is ...... no words sadly

I'm generally a fan of Will's work and was definitely looking forward to this, but unfortunately most of the previews left me disappointed. Judging by the previews the best tracks are two which are already released (Telescope and Last Night In Ibiza) and Rush, which I'm thrilled is on there.

Will reserve final judgement for when I hear it, but I expected way more.

Kismet Energy is a future classic for me. What a banger. Have been listening to it whole workout gym session, pure energy.

A good album, Rush is actually the best of the bunch IMO, 2.Kismet Energy 3.Pipe Dreams, 4.Telescope and so on. Some tracks feels like album fillers. If just Sunslip, Edge of Tomorrow and other unreleased tracks were included this would have been a lot better, unfortunately.

Was also disapointed that Edge of Tomorrow wasnt included, at least we got Rush.

Will said on a Podcast last year that he wasnt happy with Edge of Tomorrow and wants to work on it, maybe he still isnt happy with it.

Had a proper listen to the album today, and my overall impression is that it lacks in cohesion. Sounds like a mishmash of half-baked ideas - some promising, some not so much. He's at his best when producing banging energetic trance, as evidenced by Rush and Kismet Energy which are two of the better tracks here. I can appreciate him trying out various types of styles within this album, but musically it is lacking.

Will Atkinson has the potential to produce some good liquid D&B. I'm surprised he didn't explore that more in this album, tbh
