This Antiquiet-exclusive track is actually three different sections of the score, the first two offerings being Darkness and Lightness. The intro track gives way to a deeply-rockin’ 90s era jam vibe which sounds like it’s waiting for a Dave Grohl vocal, then to a gorgeously delicate, sunrays-through-the-trees poignancy, on wings of layered strings and acoustic guitar. – Johnny Firecloud, Antiquiet
