    Awful. Completely dull and the vocals are terrible. If this was on one of his earlier albums it would definitely be considered a filler track.

    It's ok, hoping for a least essential tune on this album but I am slowly losing hope.

    It sounds mediocre to me. I kinda liked Fearful Symmetry so far, but The First Note Is Silent is awful and this one doesn't do it for me.

    Not exactly one of my favorite High contrast tracks, but i prefer it to the tiesto colab - 'the first note is slient'/ not a fan of that.

    Not a fan of any of this new HC stuff. I just dont quite understand the attraction. The tune isnt even THAT uplifting or euphoric as I assume its supposed to be. As he isnt 'rip it up' drum and bass, the aim is to make people on pills feel great in those breakdowns etc. This is just a bit bland really. Going to see friction in sheffield this month and unfortunately he's gonna be there too. Im just gonna have to get in a spangled mess and go talk to randoms in the toilet for the entirety of his set. Aha.

    I like it, I will have to get used to the vocals in the breakdown where she goes bit crazy though. I've been waiting for this track since the first Brixton instalment. Kinda hope and think there will be an instrumental version. I really don't get all the hate... :confused:

    edit: is this the Selah from Blame - Because Of You? (lovely track)
