4 stars This is an album that I play when I am in the mood for Upbeat Instrumental Music. Now Shall I rank This?

Walking Down The Avenue: 8/10 Quite Good. Also quite cheesy. This song is lacking amazing vocals as well. Not particularly unique but quite enjoyable.

Crossing Lines: 10/10 Absolutely Fantastic Song. Great drums, Great Synth, and Great Vocoder Vocals. This definitely stepped up In quality. One I'd recommend checking out off this album.

Migration Time: 9/10 If it was longer than 1 minute, It would be 10/10. Great cello synths.

D-Day Dawn: 10/10 Definitely the BEST song off the album. The synths are awesome. It is very upbeat and sounds amazing. This is one I always listen too. I highly recommend this song if you listen to this album.

Final Thoughts, Departure: 10/10 Another great one. The only thing keeping this from being my favourite is the vocals and there is zero buildup. Still this one is incredible. Great guitar work in this one too!!!! Definitely one to check on this album too.

Red Roses: 6/10 Very Boring. Shouldn't of been on the album. Also incredibly cheesy. Avoid this one for sure.

Don't Wake Me Up: 10/10 Great Ambient Music. Great guitar, and synth work. I'd recommend checking this one out.

Highlights: 'Crossing Lines', 'D-Day Dawn',' Final Thoughts, Departure', and 'Don't Wake Me Up'

If this album had way better vocals, it could have been a 5/5 album but because the vocals are a little mediocre. But because of this, it deserves 3.5/5
