Review: The Qemists – The Only Love Song (Drum N Bass)

This review covers the Drum N Bass track the Qemists – The Only Love Song.

This track was released in 2010 on the album Spirit in the System.

This is another one of those tracks that fuses drum n bass and rock elements which is always a fusion that gets my interest.

I thought one of the best elements in this track was the filtered piano that utilizes what sounds like a broken chord. I thought this added quite a lot to the track and helped make it a great track.

The vocals in the chorus was quite interesting. I thought it was not a standard sound I’m used to hearing.

The rock elements really helped give this track a lot of presence which helped elevate this track.

Unfortunately, this track does have a few stops and starts with the solo bassline elements sprinkled in. Elements like this can help a track, but I don’t think it did this track any favors. To a lesser extent, the same can be said for the solo lyrical portions. It wasn’t as bad, but I didn’t think it really helped this track as much as hoped.

Still, there is a lot to enjoy about this track. The rock elements fused into drum n bass was great. The piano element was great. It just has the unfortunate sections that gave this track a bit of a jerky stop and start feel. So, I’ll say it was a pretty good track.
