Review: Jones & Stephenson – The Third Rebirth (Original Mix) (Trance)

This review covers the trance track Jones & Stephenson – The Third Rebirth (Original Mix).

This track was released in 1995 as a single.

The track starts with a synth effect. A synth melody then emerges. The high hat then joins the track. A synth string and choir then backs the track. More of the drum kit then joins the track before becoming more full. From there, the track drops off.

A synth melody comes in backed by some of the pads found earlier in the track. A second synth gradually comes in. Parts of the drum kit gradually fade into the track. The pads pull back a little bit. The high hat then rejoins the track. A snare roll gradually comes in. After that, the rest of the drum kit comes in. A secondary melody also backs the track. That secondary melody drops. More synths drop out as the pads return to the track. Parts of the track then drops out.

What ends up being left is the pads. A synth gradually comes in. A snare roll also builds up. The track then drops briefly before the main synth melody and drum kit returns. Parts of the track then drop out. The pads then take a greater roll in the track again. More parts of the track drop out, leaving just the pads and a synth. These two elements lead the track out.

One thing I did find interesting is the main melody. It at least helped build up the track in an interesting way.

Another positive is the overall flow. It actually flows nicely from one part of the track to the next. So, some decent build ups and drops there.

The thing with this track is that it only gets the basics. There’s nothing really there that gets me excited for this track. I was looking for something more in this track and it never really did anything.

Overall, this is an alright track. The main melody is alright and the pads did a decent job. It also flows pretty well from one part of the track to the next. It’s unfortunate that it doesn’t do much beyond the basics, so there’s nothing overly exciting in this track. A decent one, but there are better tracks out there.
