Review: Jack U Rebels – Planet Eye (Trance)

This review covers the trance track Jack U Rebels – Planet Eye.

This track was released in 1991 as part of an E.P.

The track starts off with a synth string and a percussion with a large amount of delay added to it. A voice sample then comes in with some phaser effects. A secondary synth string comes in to join the track.

From there, a synth melody comes in. A drum kit joins the track to help build it up. A second melody joins in on the track. Some pads join in with the phaser effect added to them. The track then breaks down briefly with an additional melody. The phaser effects come back and the drum kit builds the track back up.

A white noise sweep hits the track and the initial melody comes back. The phaser effects start coming back in along with another one of the pads. Another melody comes in before the main melody returns. Some of the pads serve as a subtle melody over top of everything else.

The track then drops, leaving only one of the pads and the phaser effect being put onto a small percussion sound. The track then builds up with some sliding synths. After that, the main melody and a few other melodies take over again.

One of the melodies start repeating some of the notes as a way to add some variety. An effect then leads the track out.

One thing I do like about the track is the fact that what amounts to the main melody also serves as a bassline. This double duty sound does end up working in the tracks favour because there are other melodies that make appearances as well.

The pads and effects add quit a bit of quality to the track. Not only do they make the track sound better overall, but they also add a sense of progression to the track on top of it all. This is because they make differing appearances throughout.

Generally speaking, this is a pretty solid track. It has some interesting melodies and a few interesting effects as well. I like the sense of progression and the production quality works out pretty well. An overall pretty good track.

Score
7/10
