Review: Blame + The Pedge – Avalon (Drum N Bass)

This review covers the liquid drum n bass track Blame + The Pedge – Avalon.

This track was released in 2007 on the compilation album Weapons of Mass Creation Volume 3. Earlier, we reviewed another track on this album. That was Apex Feat. Ayah – Space Between and we gave it a great score.

Some of the great elements in this track involved the synthetic string elements. This added a nice progressive element to the track which was great to hear.

There was also the use of singing voice samples. This gave the track an interesting dimension to the overall sound.

When the main melody came in, it was a bit anti-climactic because it was little more than a repeat of the melody found in the strings at the beginning. It was nice to hear, but could have been more in my view.

A secondary synth also was used that simply repeats the main melody. The three different sounds repeating the melody wasn’t so bad in the end because it added different sounds throughout the track. The only thing is that there was still that negative edge of repetition in the track as a result.

Generally speaking, there is a number of great sounds in this track. The downside is that most follow the exact same short melody which makes the track have a bit of unwelcome repetition in spite of the layers. It’s a pretty good track and worth the listen, just not a smash hit in my view.

Score
7/10
