Tune Evaluation: The Rampage – Ray Of Gentle

Rate this post

The Rampage - Ray Of LightAfter years of releasing glorious materials, The Rampage’s 2021 work swerved in instructions that weren’t for me. In reality, they missed out totally on my High 50 J-pop countdown final month – a uncommon omission for one in all my favourite teams. Main as much as their newest full-length album (principally a compilation of these 2021 singles), the blokes have launched its title observe as a single. Ray Of Gentle doesn’t compete with the best possible of The Rampage, but it surely seems like their music is lastly again on observe.

It is a bizarre little music. On the floor, it’s the most recent try and capitalize on pop music’s obsession with spacey synth tones. However, it swerves in surprising instructions, leading to a observe that would stand to be just a little extra cohesive. Fortunately, these particular person items are all stable on their very own.

Ray Of Gentle’s refrain opts for heavy vocal distortion, casting the primary melody as an otherworldly, phantom-like hook over which the blokes ship melodic responses. It’s an off-beat method, neither a drop-style construction nor fully-fleshed out chorus. However, it really works very nicely. I’m less-enthused by the pre-chorus, which feels too minimalist in comparison with the remainder of the observe. However, the rap verses ship the trademark Rampage vitality I’ve been lacking, and the spoken post-chorus hook scores stunning mileage given its easy repetition. Ray Of Gentle even finds room for a quick Michael Jackson impressed dance break simply earlier than its closing refrain. There’s actually one thing for everybody right here, and I believe it’s the strongest single they’ve launched since 2020’s Invisible Love.
