Nevermind the (undeserved) 1 star ratings on this one. They aren't judging the music, but rather the usage of the Half-Life game name / logo. The Domination mix is a very nice piece of upbeat melodic trance similar to what guys like DJ Session One & Peter Ries were making at the time and is my highlight of the release. The Hypnotic mix takes the track in a darker direction with a goa-esque lead melody, while the Mindbomb mix is a dreamier piece in the style of Torsten Stenzel or Ayla, so you've got a nice mix of styles to choose from with this release. Overall very good.

Warning! This release has nothing to do with Half-Life or original soundtrack of Half-Life (which btw. was composed by Valve's Kelly Bailey). Doug Laurent's version is just a cheap knockoff which tries to use the name of Half-Life and even logo to sell poorly produced trance. I even wonder and seriously question why synSONIQ bothered to release this garbage and trying to sell it like it's a legit thing.

So yeah, you all have been warned. Don't even bother to track this down because quality of this release is just mindnumbing awful. You'll thank me later.
