““This song is fantastic! It has a really energising feel, the band is obviously really talented and the drummer has a great virtuoso technique. The bass guitar riff doesn't feel like its repeated all the time which just shows how good the other soloists are over the top. It works together really well, especially at the end where there is a downwards scale which feels a bit like a whirlpool because of the way the instruments are slightly set apart canonically. the fact that there is no voice doesn't distract from making this a great song and one that I think will be a hit. It is also quite short which means that you are left wanting more rather than finding another track to change to halfway through!””
