Review: Quazar – The Seven Stars (Trance)

This review covers the trance track Quazar – The Seven Stars.

This track was released in 1991 as part of a single.

The track starts off with a synth melody. This melody has some subtle cutoff frequency effects added to it. A drum kit then joins in. A percussion similar to a cowbell is even thrown in on top of it all. Some synth pads are thrown in to add an eerie sound to the track. This effect goes away, leaving just the drum kit and the main melody.

The track then drops out, leaving a high hat, the pads and a more filtered version of the main melody. The filtering is gradually pulled back to give the track some build up. When the filter is taken off, the pads drop out.

The melody then ends briefly before starting up again. When it starts up again, an additional synth effect is added to the track. This effect drops out again. When the melody ends again, the synth pad makes a return. There is a brief cut of the drum kit before that makes a return. The effect then makes a return along with the main melody.

From there, the main melody continues, but with everything else dropping out for a brief period of time. After this, the track breaks down into a false ending before building back up again. After this, the track then breaks down with the main melody leading the track out.

One thing I do like about this track is the use of secondary effects. The synth string and the synth effect both really give this track some nice progressive elements.

What I do like about the main melody is the filter use of it. It is fairly repetitive in this track, but the filtering does at least give the track some variety on this side of things. What also numbs the repetition is the aforementioned synth effect and string elements. The evolving backing sound works very well. It still sounds a bit on the repetitive side, but it isn’t as bad as it could have been.

Overall, this is a pretty good track. It has some nice eerie sounds along with some warm synth pads thrown in. The filtered main melody is pretty good with the filtering going on, but it still is a bit on the repetitive side. Still, I would say this track is worth listening to, so an overall positive listening experience.
