Review: G.T.R. – Ask Me (The 4th Day) (Trance)

This review covers the trance track G.T.R. – Ask Me (The 4th Day).

This track was released in 1993 as part of a single.

The track starts off with a sample of thunder as well as rain. From there, a synth melody comes in. More thunder comes in as the rain continues to play out. Some high hats come in. The rain fades out. A kick then comes in starting with a roll before going into the four to the floor pattern. A synth effect then comes in. It fades out, then comes back in again.

A drop then hits. Some synth strings as well as a synth melody then plays out. A thunder sample comes in again before the synth melodies and bassline take over. A finger snap also makes a subtle appearance.

After a while, a synth string makes an appearance. After a while, that element drops out of the track again. A thunder clap sample makes a return to the track. A synth with an automated resonance makes an appearance. After this, the track gradually breaks down. The track breaks down to the point where all there is is the rain sample playing out and the synth. The synth fades out and the rain gradually fades out as well.

One thing I like about the track is the synth melodies. The layers of synths sound quite good. They sound even better in the sections with bassline, but they sound quite well done without as well.

The natural sound samples are a nice thing to hear. The weather samples make brief appearances, but they aren’t overkill in that they are always there. So, they are well spaced out.

A problem I have with this track is that the middle section of the track is just one long main chorus. As a result, there isn’t a whole lot in terms of variety even though there are smaller variances. It would have been nice to hear some additional segments throughout the track.

Overall, this is a pretty decent track. The main melodies and synth effects work nicely. The natural weather samples are nicely spaced out. It would have been nice to have heard more segments instead of one large one part way through, but still, that doesn’t make this a bad track. In fact, I would call this a pretty decent track all around. So, worth a listen in my view.

Score
7/10
