1Overall Description
What if my day was disturbed by aliens? Hrmmm... Well I guess I'd chill out and take it in stride in awe struck hypnotism. Solo is a master of creative soundscapes and it is shown here as he points out that the aliens are landing.
 
2Creativity Description
A truly inspired piece with a vision like most (if not all) of Solo's music. You do get the sense of the day and the exact moment you can see the aliens in the clouds. Nice graphic for the music as well, sets the mood.
 
3Artistic License Description
I WANT MORE! There is a heavy influx of synth that makes you think that this is part of a x-files episode. The mystery is there, but the continuation of the beginning at the end makes you wonder what was resolved. The guitars hint that some sort of panic is washing over the populace, but then its followed by a hypnotic acceptance. Perhaps these aliens were a sort of "Encounters of the Third Kind" experience.
 
4Arrangement Description
Great transitions. This track is made to chill out too and it accomplishes that atmosphere very well. The synths can be slightly overpowering than the rest of the piece, but that isn't too much of an issue as Solo deftly arranges his synth strings in great atmospheric maneuvers.
 
5Sound Quality Description
Great samples for a mod. Nice use of panning as it gave the synths a complete body.
 
6Does it work as a piece of music Description
I wonder about the ending, but the track itself works great otherwise. It serves its purpose.
