Honestly i almost hated this album when i first heard it, thought someone had stolen high contrast and replaced him with a moron like david guetta. couple of months later, my opinion has done a total 180. not only is this as good as high contrasts older stuff, it is far, far superior.
The next 5 tracks are quite simply some of the best music ive ever heard anywhere, ever and this is not an overstatement by any stretch. high contrast has always had relied on a talent for knowing what 'sounds' and chords will produce incredible, emotional music. Combined with new ideas and better production this talent is now shining more than ever.
"The Road Goes On Forever" i think is one of the best synths ever produced, spine tingling.
"Wish You Were Here" vocal is also one of the most spine tingling things ive ever heard.
"The First Note Is Silent" incredible synth again, and that drop!
"All There Is" sounds like the perfect soundtrack to a parachute jump, epic.
"The Stand" and "Agony and Ecstasy" are both brilliant, very uplifting.
"The Only Way There" "Father Cant You See" & "238 Days" are hypnotic and spellbinding, and very catchy tracks
It truly is a monumental album.
Hated it after it was released, now i think its probably in the top 3 dnb albums ever made.
