Energetic, complex lines, a great mix of surprises and solid grooves. An inspiring blend of sounds for certain! This is music for getting stuff DONE! I can't imagine taking a stroll listening to this on headphones without stroll becoming a dash, especially with those sirens making you look over your shoulder. Can't wait to hear it again.

Wow, what a lovely groove here. It feels like you have put the whole city (night-)-life in this track. Many sirenes on the background, it must be a very big city.

And your energy is going up to a climax around 2:30 before it ends with your basic theme.

For me it's a track for the dance floor, let's party. It's giving such a positive vibe, despite of the sirenes and trouble of the city. Nobody can harm you.

And it's sound is just perfect, it's mix is like candy for your ears.

Nice one again, Al.

Talking about perfect mixessmile :) Love the drive in this one.Perfect for a car-chase in a movie. And it sounding so good on my studio-monitors! Miami vice(Jan Hammer) flashback -a little jerry goodman(Mahavishnu) flash in here too.Flawless mix to it all.

Masterful work Al!

What a start!

Loved the synth riff at the begin, it gives a powerful pulsation that sustains the whole track, impeccable rythm section, a complete instrumentations with so many little nuances ( for example the syrens in the background! ).

The atmosphere is so loaded with thrill and suspence, something is gonna happening soon...... great impact for the listener! I would place this one into soundtracks, I can imagine this tune underlining an action movie!!

As always impeccable work, I just love your musical skills Al!! big grin :D

Ah...superb! Smookin' soundtrack music IMHO. Hendrix's Voodoo Child vibe on the intro. Great job on that cookin' percussion track Al. Classic Ascenzion rhythmic alchemy propelling an aloof albeit simple melodic line that morphs into a skittering frenzy of synthosis.

Ah, a new one. Here I immediately hear it is you. Guess it's that energy.

I like the change around 2:00, pushing the track in another direction. It's all going so fast while you hardly used drums/beats, I mean it's more on the background and irregular. And that aspect makes you feel like flying and being in a surrealistic world.

3:49: Another change, with that lead synth melody.

I guess I have to listen more often to get it all. It seems like you are really into this style of energies and synthesizers, reminding me of computergames.

Wonderful sounds, perfectly mixed! You did it again. By the way, this was a good one for the Strange Days Challenge too.

It's refreshing to hear a progressive instrumental that continually develops and builds, yet manages to not get in the way of itself. I love the lightness that continued throughout the piece.

Terrific job Al!

Wonderful tune AL!! big grin :D

I was wondering how can you keep your "own signature" in almost every tune you produce.... fantastic!!
In fact I would bet I can recognize your records among many other, your style is so personal and highly distinctive.

When I think that you recorded this one on 2004 ( 13 years ago!!), it is so good and would probabily count as a new "record" as well, so perfect in mix and on date with our modern understanding of music. The arrangement is unique, top shelf instrumentation and musical skills. At 1:13 the synth is running away like a rocket, unbelievable, then at about 2:00 a break and at least here I would say "this is Al Massey"!!! big grin :D
Loved the strings on the underground, later the pizzicato ( as heard onthe intro), just to mention a couple of interesting/impressive points!!

Al, you rule, another great work, what a talented musician!!! Bravo Al!

Never cease to be amazed by your compositions, certainly no exception here. A previous work? Absolutely brilliant idea to post it here up top. So much substance (just catch myself saying WOW at every turn!), I'd probably need some sort of doctorate to properly describe this so I'll settle back and be blown away by it. Such a treat, thank you!

Maybe recorded years ago but you'd never know as it still sounds very current. Love the way the song progesses along at quite some pace. Tremendous keyboard playing throughout. An excellent example of a synth lead song. Brilliant!

Interesting to note your timeless compositional talent evident here but couched within a '70s technological syntheses. Oh wait, what is happening! Oh no, musical genre transmution detected. Activating DEFCOM 5 status. Blue's encroachment underway. Did I every tell you who I feel about the blues Al? Dimensional dementia assimilation achieved. Clarence Gatemouth Brown channeled - twang.....

Fantastic music!! - fantastic performance!!
Yes! The title of the piece and its content are in perfect harmony! Very cool...
Honest to say I didn't expect to meet such peculiar piece in your repertoire, Al!
The intro is almost pure classics but the final part after amazing development has evoked the association with some electronic music of Zappa due to its both excellent electronic timbres and sophisticated tunes. So I take off my hat!...
