    not bad...the B side is similar to the Modus remix which I think is sick. Heard the A side a few times and its just a bit too C&T for my liking, its not bad though. All-round, will bag but mainly for the B side

    Agreed. Didn't like the vocal, and the track isn't really going anywhere. B side sounds more interesting.

    Generic at it´s best.

    The day that never comes unfortunately came and makes Calyx and the other guy sound outdated.

    And B sounds like made in two minutes jump up from any netlabel around.

    Should go back to producing on their own

    Their work as Calyx & Teebee has been uninspiring to say the least

    I was expecting shit, but I do like these tracks, even Snakes & Ladders with the infamous 'Jump-up' wobble synth.

    Snakes & Ladders over Frankee's Drop It Low ANY FUCKING TIME.

    A Day That Never Comes is hot. Really hot IMO.

    I don't think that I will bag this physically, since I am currently bagging vinyl on a budget, but will bag digitially.

    They're not bad tunes, I like them, I agree on the recycled sound part though. It seems that the standard C&T Remix Sound/Synth is making it's way into their own production :(

    You've got to appreciate that it is a unique sound none the less, the way I see it is if you want a different sound listen to someone else. I've grown fond of it myself and welcome new tunes including the C&T sound

    Its been 3 years, you'd expect them to start using different sounds by now.

    I think a lot of us were hoping / expecting C&T to switch up their sound and try something new. It's not necessarily bad, actually one of my favourite RAM releases recently, except my expectations for the new album just dropped dramatically.
