Review: Aurora Feat. Naimee Coleman – Ordinary World (Original Radio Mix) (Trance)

This review covers the progressive trance track Aurora Feat. Naimee Coleman – Ordinary World (Original Radio Mix).

This track was released in 2000 on a single. It should be noted that this is a cover track to the original Duran Duran track.

The track starts off with a sweep. From there, the guitar and drum kit comes in. The guitar basically serves as a main melody for the track.

A drop then hits and the vocals come in for the verse. This is backed by a filtered drum kit and a bassline. The drum kit gradually comes in. The vocals are also backed by some pads.

From there, the vocals take the track into the first round of the main chorus. There are multiple synth melodies that back them. This section is capped off with some synth effects.

After that, the vocals take the track into the next verse. Some synth melodies also back the vocals here. The guitar even makes a subtle appearance here. Synth pads also back this section.

From there, the vocals take the track into the next round in the main chorus. The track actually drops a fair bit in this section with the drum kit gradually coming in part way through. This section is capped off with a guitar solo with several backing elements.

The vocals then repeat the main chorus with every element playing out minus the guitar. This section is capped off with the guitar solo with elements of the vocals. From there, the track gradually fades out.

Let me start this off by saying that there are a lot of positives to this track. The lyrics, like the cover, is a strength in this track. Unlike the original, the vocals are also a very strong part of the track. That alone is an excellent combination to have already.

This version also retains the guitar element. This is also a strength in the original track and winds up being a major strength here as it balances the vocals out nicely.

Of course, this track brings a whole lot more to the table. The synth melodies that flow throughout the track really gives this track a great sound. When they back the vocals, it strengthens the track. Meanwhile, the pads helps give this track a lot of strength.

The way the track pulls back and pushes things also gives this track a great variety throughout. I really like the way the track is laid out as well.

Overall, this is quite the great track with loads of strengths. The lyrics, vocals, and backing pads are already major strengths. The guitar elements and synth melodies also add a lot to an already very good track. Finally, the way the track flows is certainly top notch. So, definitely a recommended track.

Score
8.5/10
