Undoubtedly one of the highlights of Solarstone's career (so far), Release is a magnificent example of trance music treated with respect and restraint.

The intro section (for DJ use) is actually quite listenable by itself, thanks to copious use of swirling water effects that quickly relent to introduce a catchy little hook and bassline that really entices you in. Before long, the first drop hits and the main melodic refrain becomes apparent.

Layers of different sounds keep your interest until the main drop which fully envelops you in a blanket of warm, deep melody that you drift off into a dream with.

Yes, this all sounds very idealistic but it truly is one of "those" tracks. I am a life-long fan of trance music (from my childhood memories of Jean Michel Jarre & Vangelis onwards) and this track is really quite special.

The b-side track, "Destination", is almost as good. The melody is beautiful and emotive. It was used on Tiësto's "Nyana" mix cd, to great effect. If it were not for the fact that Release was the a-side, I would be screaming about how great this track was by itself.

As it stands, it is merely the flip-side to absolute beauty. As "Destination" is a track of definite beauty in itself, you can perhaps begin to understand how much I love Release.

Upon first hearing this release back in 2003 I searched intensely for the vinyl. Once I secured a copy, I was ecstatic. I still treasure it, regardless of its worth.
