Sounding great in the 300 watt studio monitors Al big grin :D
that bottom end is MASSIVE as well as that sax tone trading riffs with JR's stinging guitar jabs, some of the riffs I'm hearing are 'Electric Ladyland' in quality wink ;)
Extra stars for sheer GREATNESS!

Thanks for your very nice comment on my track "Solar Eclipse". I really apreciate it and I'm happy to hear that you enjoy my music. smile :) Now about your track : The beginning felt a little bit mysterious the first 11 seconds, but then a chilling mood starts to occur. A happy feeling which you get after midnight when it's very late and a very nice arrangement of good sounds. Great work. Also your music has an own story and is very experimental sometimes, but it's all awesome! Keep it up. You're doing great this way. smile :)

Always impressed by the sound and production of your tracks. Very rich, warm tones and an incredible depth. That sax really does sound like it's standing in front of me...and I can imagine all the other instruments being played in the background and surrounding area - superb mix! Amazing arrangement and blend of textures and tones. Top class as always.

Hey Al!

.... what a delicious tune, I fall in love with the rythm section and that fx-vocal sample.... first choice indeed and so cool intro in fact. Have to admit that Alex was right positioning this track into a Dance Floor, may be in a City-Club down in a old building among dark (neon) lights with people all around dancing to the rythm...... nice visual impression in my mind.

Your sax performance as always perfect, absolutely flawless and paired with a high energy and professionalism on the phrasings, you are a great musician! I wish to compliment JR not only for the superb Rock leead, but also for his choice to put a new sound on the second lead part ( clean, light crunchy, at 2:50), this was excellent in my eyes, really elegant and nicely working wth the sax !! Bravissimi you two, a splendid collab for true! smile :)

PS: this is a tune in the album: "Unquiet Slumber", how exciting, I like the album title, and this tune fits in it superbly!

This is very very cool. It feels like nightlife in a big city.

A dance floor somewhere in an old building. I like the key changes here in this track, it's uplifting everything.

Yeah, it's your style completely, nice. There is something about the sound that I really like. Very good mix...

And that guitar around 2:15 is the highlight here for me, together with the following key change.

Good job Al! And it's giving such a good feeling and lots of energy......

Sweet! Oh yeah! Great rhythm track. That sax is just so cosmically cool - those subzero ice cold cool saxplasmatic solos raise goosebumps! Wow JR is tearing it up here - awesome guitar work. The production is, as always first class. Ascenzion's music is always in a class by itself. I thought you'd been quite lately Professor, now I see why. Control freak? Nah, just a musical master creating with great skill. A big fan...Alan.

I'm lounging to this and enjoying the smooth sounds you provide. You're always eclectic - the mark of brilliance. Especially 2:35 to 2:51! That is a sweet sequence! Thanks for bringing that back! It reminds me of Underworld's chill works. Amazing, inspiring and vibrant!

Briljant! Totally something different than what we usually hear nowadays today. Unique on it's own way and not sounding like the standard thing we have already heard often everywhere. This track is very nice. Good work. big grin :D
