Review: Violet Force – Planet E. (Trance)

This review covers the trance track Violet Force – Planet E.

This track was released in 1992 as part of a single.

The track starts with a voice sample and a synth melody. A secondary synth melody comes in. A chime ends the melodies.

In the next section, a general drum kit does come in. A clap comes in shortly after. A synth melody then comes in. A secondary melody takes over and the voice sample continues. The main voice sample then takes back over. The track then briefly breaks down.

In the next section, the larger voice sample continues again. A synth melody backs this. A whispering voice sample briefly takes over before the main voice sample takes over. A male voice sample echos the main voice sample in this section. The track then quickly breaks down.

From there, a synth melody and the drum kit takes over. A new synth melody then comes in. The male voice sample makes an additional appearance. The main voice sample then takes over. After that, the male voice sample leads the track out.

One thing this track has going for it is that it does have a good variety from beginning to end. The multiple synth melodies does a very good job of that.

Another positive about this track is the fact that it has pretty good flow. It has certain stops and starts that actually makes sense throughout. This helps give this track a good sense of progression.

As for the voice samples, there are aspects I really like about them and aspects I’m not a huge fan of. What I like about the voice samples is that they help paint a very vivid image of the intended mood in the track. They do a great job of that. What I’m not a huge fan of is the fact that some of the voice samples just seem to drag. While I can appreciate longer voice samples, I’m not sure it worked quite as well in this track.

Overall, though, this track is quite well done. It has some great variety and good melodies throughout. The flow works quite well in this one. The voice samples have their strengths and weaknesses. Still, it’s a very solid track in the end.
