Tense and trippy, an exhilarting listen.
Upon listening to the first few notes of this song, I visualized somebody like a spy crawling through an air duct to do whatever it is that spies do. That's what makes a good song for me, making me think, making it so that the music can entirely fill my mind.
At 1:53, the song seemed to slow down a little bit, or at least let up on the melody that had been carefully cultivated to that point. I've got to dock you for that, because it can kind of zap the listener out of the trance they can get into with this song. It was also near that point that the repetition of the song started to irk me. I think you could chop a minute or so off of the song and have a real triumph.
That being said, I think the beginning of the song is much better than the rest of it. Immediately, it hooks the listener. I wanted it to speed up; I wanted to hear pounding drums; I wanted to be bombarded by this song. I was a little disappointed when the song turned out to be mellower than I expected, but it's still really catchy. If I ever need spy music for a movie or game, I think I know where I'm going to.
