What I like about these songs is that about 97.5% of times the titles really fit the sound of the song!

Wow, I'm blown away! You are my favorite music artist!
Revisiting the classics, and boy am I happy to listen to this one again.
Now, the mix is definitely pretty rocky, that's for sure. The song is overall extremely loud, and this causes it to sound a little muddy in places. However, if you're willing to look past that, you're in for a real treat.
Overall, the song is hard and heavy, but still somewhat melodic. The bass is loud and pounding throughout, but it never devolves into a complete mess. It never interferes with the melody, even in the drops.
The first drop is easily the best part of the song. It almost reminds me of a harder version of Shatter's drop, in that the bass remains melodic and is peppered with the lead. The break in between the two halves is an interesting touch, and really gets you pumped for the second half.
The second half of the drop is absolutely incredible. More melodic, more fast-paced and energetic, more of, well, just about everything good about the first half. It's almost like the drop of Tria meets the sound design of Attack.
The biggest problem with the song for me was the second drop. After the long, epic buildup in the middle of the song you'd expect a big payoff, but ultimately you will be disappointed to find the second drop is almost exactly the same as the first drop. Not the second half, though, just the first half. It's a big pet peeve of mine with dubstep, really. Copy/pasting the drop makes your track come across as lazy, and you'd really expect more than that after such a long wait. There are some changes, though, so it's not a complete copy/paste.
I think a possible solution would have been to make the second half of the first drop the entire second drop. It would force a complete restructuring of the drop, but because of how vastly different the two halves are, it would make more sense.
Despite that and the mix, I'd still say this track is worth a 9/10 because of how much I enjoyed it overall. Listening to this really makes me miss the complextro. On that note, I wonder how orchestral complextro would sound...
