Atkinson did some nice things, but this one is poor. Beep beep ting ting, too simple and boring.

I really like the breakdown, the vox-thingy and the square-ish pluck give it a nice atmosphere. Not a big fan of the drop, but I think it's a good track overall

I think this is brilliant, much more layers to this track then initially meets the eye. Will be a big one over the coming year.
Great job from Atkinson

Tired of hearing Lisa Gerrard's vocals in trance tracks, especially that sample (2:28). Plus, the way the vocals are used is quite cheap, you can hear that stuff in commercial (deep-house) etc. quite a lot nowadays. Otherwise, the track has some potential, but I don't like the execution. Somehow the combination of the beats and the melodies is a bit off, not quite fit for full impact.

But hey, it's clearly a festival track, it'll work there quite well.

Kinda cheesy, but not too bad. Kinda bro-ish. Too much of everything, but too little of something else. Lack some form of consistency.

I cant take Atkinson seriously. :/

This track is all over the place. It feels like it was meant to be a storming tech-trancer with the intro and initial 2 minutes or so, but then it becomes pretty standard and forgettable uplifting trance.
People are going to go nuts to this, but frankly the harder/darker parts are much better than the main section.

I love and hate Will Atkinson. Hes a good producer but his songs are so unbalanced and random sometimes. He puts in so much weird stuff at times as well.

You never know what will happen , suddenly the whole song changes and it feel like you listen to a different genre within the same song.

4:30 the take off, it doesnt fit in the same song as the take off at 5:50. It sounds like 2 different songs and if i heard this in a mix i would totally belive it was 2 different songs.

It could have been good this one, a shame.

I always hear recycled melodies and samples from the past in Will's tracks but he does them well - youve got Public Domain at the start,then GD - Choral Reef intro melody,then that vocal sample thats from an old track (cant remember which right now)...the main melody is the weakest part of the track imo,very generic - and the outro melody is the best bit of the track ha. Will be a very popular track thats for sure.

I keeps growing on me, I quite like the whole conceptuality of a "last rave on earth" track. you have your acid Operation Blade esq part, your Clear blue water synth, your dreamy vocal breakdown and finally your trancey supersawtooth arp, all @ 145 bpm end of the night beat. Sort of all the things you would want in your "final rave on earth"

Hadn't thought about it that way tbh
